Seems a slight shame the lighting guy waited right till the end of the Holden remix to turn the blue lights off and the 'pink' ones on but otherwise pretty impressive stuff...

Really enjoyed that Marcus - thank you very much - some quality Sunday morning listening

I've never had the pleasure of playing on CDJs. Can anyone clarify - is it having any actual effect when she is touching the mixer or is the whole thing just fake? Every 2 seconds making a pointless/fake touch of the buttons!

For what it's worth I don't think that Doris's video is faked in any way - massively planned and rehearsed and not in anyway spontaneous but not 'faked'.  She's obviously 'cue-pointed' her tracks to absolute fuck and just bounces from cue-point to cue-point with all tracks at virtually identical BPMs.  I guess it's a fair enough way of doing things - the technology offers the possibility and all she's doing is using it - but I'd genuinely give up rather than do what she does.

And she's not the only DJ I've ever seen doing massively exaggerated actions on the mixer knobs - to look at some people you'd think they were mixing concrete rather than turning a small dial - those pots can be turned using thumb and one finger, it makes me laugh to see DJs putting their shoulder and whole upper body into it!

Enjoyed that mate - thank you for sharing.

Nice - was looking at the 6" KRKs a while back but that's just upped the ante somewhat...

What does one call it when it's just drops? 

Drop after drop after drop after drop after... and no actual music in between.

The reason that Toronto is a better place to live than London (IMO) isn't anything to do with cultural diversity - I lived in some fairly decent places in England - Epsom, Canterbury, Guildford, Leicestershire and (er) Brixton so I'm pretty middle-england with a touch of 'South of the River Wanker' and I fucking love it here.

In my experience it's more to do with the fact that it is safer, the people are friendlier, it's cleaner, education is better, there is more green space / open parks etc and generally people are happier meaning it is a lot less stressful. Jobs pay more too. They embrace education and immigration and I hardly see any racism at all. Healthcare feels better too. Have I got stats and links to prove that? Nope but it feels like it to me and that's all I care about.

Wouldn't disagree with a word of that (whereabout's in Epsom by the way?  I'm a ten minute drive from Epsom)

My best mate emigrated to Canada (he's in Aurora on Toronto's outskirts) about 18 years ago - been over and stayed with him several times - did a trip up through Montreal and Quebec and then another 100+ miles - went whale-cruising on the St Lawrence river - one of the best weekends of my life.  Canada is a lovely country and I'd love to see more of it.

And for what it's worth, the 3rd largest population of Canadians living outside of Canada other than the US/L.A. is in the UK/London.

You're pretty much proving my point no?

London is also home to the 2nd/3rd/4th largest populations of *wherever* nationals living outside of *wherever* to a greater degree than almost anywhere else - especially Toronto...

I know you like a good debate, but if you want to quote me something more than an article from that blog piece of reputable  journalism versus the stats numbers that are drawn from census data that I've quoted, feel free.

Until then, I'm having a complete reg, yeah?

No, 'until then' I've stated facts and quoted something that goes some way to backing them up - you have merely asserted opinion...

*edit*
apologies - have now seen/read your earlier links

Loops, seriously fella, back down on this one - Toronto has considerable populations who arrived by boat and plane over relatively recent decades (as long as they could satisfy the Visa criteria to enter/stay/live) whereas England at large, and London specifically, has been open to the entire of Europe whilst it drains itself into the most attractive plug-hole it can find...  *guess where*

And all of that ignores the influx from outside of the EU. 

Britain plundered far and wide - further and wider than any other nation - and now we welcome and accommodate folk from all those far and wide places.

You haven't been over recently then...

It's a tough analogy to argue because the population of London makes Toronto and Melbourne look like chumps, but on a per capita basis the census numbers prove me correct.  Even outside of that it would be hard to make a case.  [shrug]

I am not in any way saying that it isn't a great place to live or a great city for that matter. 

Toronto is full of cold, stuck-up people who think they're the centre of the universe and would not be seen showing any form of emotion in a club, for fear of it looking uncool.  The rest of Canada (rightfully) hates them as a population. 

Oddly enough, I find New Yorkers more friendly and they're not known for their charm.

I found 'Torontons' (?!) to be bog-standard, average, normal people - some were rude, many were helpful. 

But London has a higher proportion of greater diversity than Toronto.

End of.

There are very, very, few major cities in the world that come close to London - I've been to Toronto (three times) and just... no, sorry, you're wrong on that one fella...

I wasn't debating which was a better place to live.  Horses for courses on that one.  I personally wouldn't ever live in either city.

However, on the subject of 'multiculturalism' Toronto outshines London - and so does Melbourne.

No, it doesn't - as would be obvious to anyone who's spent time in the margins of both cities recently...
