United statement on the De Gea farce

They have had two months to try and get this deal done, why did they have to leave it till the last minute, they did the same with Bale, the player supposedly agreed to Jon the club 2 months ago but Real trying haggle over the fee again

I made two tracks once back in the day with someone, who I cant be arsed to name, who later became quite famed in prog circles. Had them pressed to 50 copies then realised it was fucking awful and threw 48 of them onto a rubbish dump.

Why did you only cut 50, it would have been more cost effective to cut 200 or even 500

So De Gea move now 100% off, will Utd now play him or keep him on ice till January and try again. Or will the player just sign a pre contract agreement to join Madrid in January and leave for nothing next summer?

Sometimes it best just to stay away

Probably more comfortable than a night on the sofa and picture and no sound for most of the day

Band camp perhaps, but you have to have a decent following already. Like you said, Beatport is the most popular site which is why most labels sell it exclusively through them for the first couple of weeks to try and get as many sales as possible before they go on Juno etc

Out of curiosity Hoopster.If I were to buy your track "Stealth Bomber" from Beatport for £1.12 how much of that would you receive?

50% less whatever the distribution takes. That's usually 15%.

That's a pretty standard deal for digital labels and even was back in the vinyl heyday. It's not big money, but it adds up if you by some miracle shift more than 1000 sold.

Think it might be a bit less than that, Beatport takes 40% of the sales fee before you even start, then you take the distribution fee whatever that is then you're left with 50% of whats left, which is fuck all really

Some of his stuff in early 2000's was borderline

So what you're saying is that, even at it's worse, Graham's tracks still didn't hit the norm, versus what was around at that time?


If his "borderline" work wasn't BSPF then the man has done well for himself.So what you're saying is that, even at it's worse, Graham's tracks still didn't hit the norm?

I remember this remix he did of 3 Monkeys - Crazy people that could have been considered BSPF but for someone to have been making tunes since the early 1990's to have very few misses compared to hits is pretty impressive

Poor old Dutchy's dad, bet he wishes he'd got socks instead

When i was at school there was a girl in my year who was into stuff like the Cure, The Smiths, Fields of the Nephilim and was probably my first exposure to alternative music, however it wasn't until i heard this that i really appreciated The Cure

Xpander was an Ok tune, certainly not a prog essential. Probably the least essential track on GU13.

I'd certainly agree with this but a lot of people see Xpander is the prog trance crossover tune
