Re: Honestly appraise your djing skills here

...I want Derm to upload that set he played in the gay bar, the one that ramps right up to pounding 130bpm prog, then abruptly cuts off for 5 minutes before resuming with the Pet Shop Boys and Cher

Quite like some of Stimming's stuff. Got a track of his with with seagulls on it that's good. Yes. Seagulls.

Electronic music needs more wildlife samples if you ask me. How much better would Sasha's mixes sound with a wolf howling every so often? And whale song is vastly underrated in a clubbing environment I reckon. More whales singing please. And seagulls.

Re: Honestly appraise your djing skills here

To be honest, I've now seen Dermo asked to put a mix up about 4 or 5 times now (on either here or GU) and it's had the same response every time.

Think credentials are on the line here. Derms needs to step up to the plate.

Perhaps he doesn't know how to record them?

It's a wonder he manages to get out of bed every day.

I'm a dead set 9. But after 20 years of playing out probably need an absolute no-mark nobody like SimonR to endorse my ability.

Either put up or shut up. I am involved in a monthly podcast and there is a slot in October that I can make available. If you are as good as you say you are, then it's yours. Can't be fairer than that?

Perhaps if Diggers himself asks Dermo he might oblige

A Transitions mix in the making that I'd happily listen to.

Re: Honestly appraise your djing skills here

Dermo's mix;

Re: Honestly appraise your djing skills here

this thread has gone better than expected - lol

around 2004-2005 i thought i was a solid 6.5/10 on the Technics and had played out a few times to people who weren't just my mates

however have not touched a vinyl in anger since c.2006 when i had to dismantle my decks room and turn it into a nursery

still have all my records in the garage - but not the space to bother with purchasing some new decks

thinking of getting this Z1 and an ipad to mess about with

Re: Honestly appraise your djing skills here

I'd be a solid 8/9 as long as I'm not too drunk though I haven't been played out in a while.

Obviously any of the red facers can vouch for my prowess. And also my djing ability.

Re: Honestly appraise your djing skills here

On the 1210s, I'd probably rate myself 4.5 now,  in 2004-2005 probably 6.5!

Serato Vinyl, umm... guessing about 7.5 - you can't really fuck up a mix if you've got the BPMs, Keys and the wave file rolling. Gives you the space to worry about tighter programming.

Traktor on the iPad, or Traktor in general - haha I don't know 9? You hit sync and you're sorted. hmm

Never played on CDJs and don't intend to.

Way more comfortable playing techhouse ala Fabric/Wiggle/H-Foundation, than the big room vortex GU/bedrock type prog. Find it much tougher to play a peak time set, enjoy the warm up sounds. Recently been having a lot of fun mixing cheesy disco and indie remixes for the ladies.

Re: Honestly appraise your djing skills here

Does somebody really have to say it, RHouses? Do they?

Re: Honestly appraise your djing skills here

Surely there is a handy x and y chart to analyse your abilities with differing genres and various dj gear?

There is one of these on the spreadsheet, but we are missing an entry for Dermo.

Re: Honestly appraise your djing skills here

To be fair to SimonR and Dermo, they are both adept at identifying tunes.

I suppose SimonR has never said he can dj/mix, whereas Dermo rates himself at 9.

Rather high number is nine.

Mattblack is still upset that we called him a fruitcake for loving that saiz tune.

Rather high bordering on delusional !

Derms has been called out .. but not shown the minerals to throw up a mix.

.... of course the 9 now adds to the pressure ..  perhaps the Dermatron would spit it out with a 1.5

Re: Honestly appraise your djing skills here

All fart, no poo.

Re: Honestly appraise your djing skills here

Reckon Dermo has now gone off line to put together the mix of all mixes to finally shut up his detractors.

Hopefully with a map of what is on each of the three decks at each time a la Hawtin's DE9 sleeve.
