That is one sweet setup. Is the DJ stand an IKEA hack? Think I saw one similar but my IKEA console is too narrow for 2 cdjs and 2 technics

'93 pianos and strings

Remember when HOV first came out. The classic supply choke to spur on demand. Rampling caning it whenever he played out. Then dropped on Deconstruction and the fucker actually charted. Ridiculous when you think back how many tunes people were banged up on actually got into the charts and sold a bucketload of units........when i explain that to my US mates they just can't comprehend the mayhem going on the UK/Europe in the 90s whilst they were listening to their post Nirvana whatever

Imagine this dropped at Faces....the horror


Shame no one has managed to intigrate an IPad into the CDJ landscape to get round lugging laptops into setups . Be nice to whack an iPad into a USB on my 900 and use the screen / playlists / storage etc

Anyone have any experience of the xdj 1000s? My cdj 900s are getting a bit long in the tooth now and scrolling tracks on that screen is a nightmare . Reckon I could px my 900s at guitar center to get some sort of deal

So no stream or recording of SnD yet ? Agree it's pretty poor all the  bands are covered by the BBC but not much else.

Funny seeing Radiohead doing EIIRP and relying on a Korg Kaos pad to hold it all together ......

Tickets purchased for me and the better half. Anyone else planning on going? Be good to organize a meetup if so

New Cid Inc set.... first 40 mins or so top notch

Only mates of mine back home who frequented things like this never stepped foot in a decent club in the 90s/00s, only the local Ritzy or Chasers. Banging on about it ever since.

Lost Desert & Lee Burridge - Loopyness

No idea when its out. Starts at around 45min on the Lost Desert podcast below … ost-desert

Watching the Sasha set now - loving Eats Everything doing shots, getting hammered and larking around in the booth.

The open your mind remix is tasty … teca/sasha

New Gerber EP rather tasty.

Track starting at around 44mins has been haunting me since this ADID podcast was out up. Groover~

I was going to get tickets for the game but realised it would be the only time to catch up with my mates back home, so a pub with the game on would be the best bet. Mate back home is trying to source a location around the Lpool st area to watch it. Snedds- you know anywhere?

Squarepusher gig looks superb. 808 state too......

Some jester on Discogs selling Corrado - Trust for 200 notes


Fair play Flares

Will be back in the old country Sat Oct 24th staying in a windowless room in Shoreditch prior to my semi annual trip to the Isle of Wight to see the folks.

Arrive early and plan to watch the Hammers/  Chelsea game in some hole playing dodgy Nigerian TV

Im way too old and US assimilated to comprehend what is half decent to go out to after that. As I'm out east are there any decent boozers /club/bars that would tickle my fancy? Anyone playing out in the vicinity ? ALFOS ?

Any recommendations would be appreciated

Was listening to Ren 2 in the car last weekend. Still quality IMO.

Fathers of Sound certainly had a peachy period around '95. Some of those remixes, like the Justine mix, are utter class

Very true......the 7 yrs I've been here i have seen the difference.

This sums it up … -york-city


You guys have kept the colonies tip top ........

Impromptu live stream from the studio.....

Quality thread. This and the Rugby WC making me thoroughly homesick today.

The boozer in Drury Lane near where Plastic Fantastic was a fave of mine. Sat afternoon post covent garden pints. Perusing my power prog purchases. Some great boozers in central London

Fave of mine is the Timber Bats in the depths of rural Kent. Middle of fucking nowhere. Many a post club Sunday lunch was had there during my Uni days. Proper country pub

Went to the night Mica Paris destroyed Great Gig in the Sky....never forget the crowd reaction of polite horror. Poor cow just ran off stage. Tough tune to pull off that one. Quality gig apart from that. Shame I missed the Bowie appearance .

Echoes on LIG is fooking amazing. Have to have another watch of that now you reminded me.

It's tough listening to what Gilmour puts out now. The last Floyd album was one too many IMO. Perhaps closure on the debate of what got left off TDB, but pretty tough to digest. I thought the out takes from TDB would be more Orb esque, plus with Youth producing thought it would be more palatial.

I liked RTN and saw Gilmour at the Royal Albert Hall during that tour. Was bloody great. Played Echoes which blew me away. Fair play he is touring again and doing MSG here in New York for a few nights which will be pretty amazing, plus fuel the debate if Waters will rock up as he lives in the Hamptons .

I do agree that the producer element of DJing can get rather overly complicated and end up compromising the basics of the tracks played. A producer friend of mine always winces when he hears DJs screwing around too much with tracks as the original artist wanted a track a certain way.

For that reason I never liked sample decks and triggering beats/samples in that manner. Seemed more focussed  on hip hop that house. Stems does interest me more depending on what is available . Early days but fuck all out there are the moment so investing in another F1 might be a bit premature . Agree the accapella side if things would be interesting
