Joey in Joey Deacon..."Don't be a Joey ......" Still remember day after that documentary was on the whole school was going mental. Emergency assembly called at school to halt the distasteful name calling. in someone shouts bundle in the direction of an unfortunate person and everyone steams in.

not sure, hank. RDJ has made a wide array of styles in his day, so it could sound like almost anything. i hate to hurt my noise cred, but i must confess that i am not a huge fan of RJD's noisier side. hangable audio bulb and what not. i am hoping this will be closer to his ambient and house monikers.

This album is already out there….

The Selected Ambient Works are absolute masterpieces. But to go from those to what can only be described a fucking racket is completely unforgivable. Honestly, if I filled up my dishwasher with a load of pans and cutlery and 4 hours previously had eaten a phall strength Aloo Gobi knocked back with 4 pints of Carlsberg Jacobsen beer. I could then hook up a mic next to the dishwasher and another next to arsehole and record something infinitely more melodic and interesting than most of those later efforts.

Second that.

Remember some of the guys from school getting into all that "intelligent Techno" post selected ambient works. Labels like Rephlex. Sounds like a total din to me. Just heavy noise. Awful .

No surprise to me.

Fcking terrible . Realy got my goat today .... No mention on any mainstream media chanel here in the US apart from in Chicago . Was out with some American mates tonight and they were giving it large he invented house music etc etc. When I conveyed to them no one in the US knew about him because the US media's vetoing of anything linked to black people/gay people/ counter culture they shut the f up. Totally clueless .

I'm dumbfounded how many people here in the US have no clue who he was. In the UK it's front page news on the BBC website. CNN aren't even reporting it. Very sad he never got the true recognition he deserved by the mainstream US. Utter legend.

Advantage of traktor with the CDJs is the fact you dont have to go through the rekordbox analysis and exporting , plus with traktor you have added effects that you may want to use. Cdj 2000s have a bigger screen so navigating through tracks is easier if you have loads on your usb. The 900s have a crappier screen that I hate navigating through .

Is there any benefit sound wise using USB sticks vs CD vs using as soundcards(traktor) ?

Heard a mix back when I was using them with traktor and the guy after me was using tracks off USB sticks and it sounded a lot better.

Surely everything still goes through the same DACs?

Probably said before but all this Towie, Joey Essex , Essex thing.

Having lived in the area I can tell your they are all a bunch of spoilt dumb rich  kids living off mum and dad. Problem is people must be lapping it up for all these shit shows to be aired.

True we always had entertainers like this from the days of court jesters, but this has to stop for Christs sake.......

We are back at the Koloklub, Hoboken on April 11th for another installment of Industry Standard.

No Cover

8pm until late

PM me if you need any more info, or fancy playing this year at one of our gigs

You could be the next David Mancuso if you invited all your neighbours, plied them with drugs and dried fruit and paid off the local sheriff.

Endless possibilities.

More like Peter Stringfellow......

Went once in 2009. Really enjoyed it but was only there for 3 days and did other touristy things as well as the conference. Went to a Ben Watt pool party and Sasha and Digweed at Mansion.

Keep to the decent daytime pool parties and away from Ultra and you will be fine.

Couldn't you do that in your lounge? Be a lot cheaper and less effort than hiring a club.

Could do but the downstairs neighbors are light sleepers........

In all seriousness we don't pay anything for the venue we do our parties in. When I first came to the US we did some things in NY but the venues wanted so much up front and a say in the music gave up in the end. What we do here in Hoboken doesn't bankrupt us and we can do what we want music wise. Ben going about 18mnths and slowly building a decent enough crowd.

Lot tougher than what I did in the UK though due to the whole musical upbringing of the majority of the US.

so what goes on at your night in nj again?

Less people and obviously less polished, but I'd rather have 3 people dancing all night and going for it rather than a crowd just standing there doing nothing. Problem with this type of clubbing in NY is people go to be seen, not participate. Loads of good smaller events happening though, just this type of event/venue attracts the above sterotype.

What sums up the big club scene in NY happened to me last night.

Was out in the west village with the mrs having a nice meal. Warren and Hernan were playing at that gaff. Off the cuff we thought of going along. Looked into the door price and it was 50 bucks a pop.....100 bucks to just walk in the door....fucking crazy. No wonder everyone looks as miserable as sin in there if they have spent that much just to get in or had to book tickets 8 weeks in advance to get a decent price.....impromptu clubbing ???? Not likely

Floyd aren't a band, they're a way of life. Only a complete clownshoe wouldn't know this.

Massive + 1 on that....

Growing up in the early 90s bands like the Roses and Mondays were an enormous cultural shift from the standard rock and pop fodder. I probably see them through roses tinted glasses as musically not the greatest, but as a point in time highly influential and therefore rightfully should be up on a pedestal .

Floyd over rated? Get a grip FFS.........

True it's a great city, but the reality of clubland here is somewhat different to the image  I grew up on living in the uk. Clubland in the UK since 88 has wiped NY of the map

Don't give up. Keep the home fires burning!

That Manc housemate of Sasha's was an interesting chap. Wonder if he has come out the other side unscathed by the hedonism of 90s E culture?

Watched this again the other day. My impressions at the end being....

- Lucky shits. What a laugh they were having. Basically bowling round the USA larking around and taking the p*ss.

- Some very odd acid casualties coming out of the woodwork for SnD. Hippy couple who heard them on the radio and said they played " Their kind of music" and that old geezer at the WMC talking bollocks. Hope for me yet in the industry by the looks of it.

- Jimmy Van M is a bell

-Good bit of scran on offer at the boat party. Proper tucking into the pork pies and pineapple chunks there.

-If that "sound" was on the verge of hitting the mainstream in 2002/3, what on earth happened in the intervening years which spawned EDM?

Thought about venturing out over the Hudson for this one. Looks like a typical NY crowd. No one dancing or letting their guard down......sounds pretty amazing though. Sasha at Output April 12th BTW

Pro audio star in NY are doing new Xone 62s for $632 through eBay . No tax or postage in US. Picked one up today. Use the make an offer option on the new ones on ebay. Nice deal so thought I'd share.  Promise im not on commission !

I've got wooden floors.....probably half the problem. Been thinking about getting carpet so if I do underlay maybe the best option.

I live in a flat with some rather noise sensitive neighbors. At the moment I'm playing my decks through my TVs soundbar which is shite. I'm looking at some dedicated monitors such as the white pioneer ones or those red rpms from Akai. Any suggestions regarding sound damping or reducing the likihood noise will travel ? Do isolation pads make much difference?
