Re: the worst sounding tune

Brain stuff is notoriously bad on the mastering front: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmnEcCbSgbo Having said that Brain is one of my favourite labels and the roughness is part of the appeal. If it had Austin/Jack smooth levels of engineering it would have lost that gritty edge that I love about it...

Re: Awesome Formation Tunes...

If this had of been a 12 it would have been huge, as it was it became a lost gem. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lpztDuA9qI Power Play is such a sick double pack. This one popped up earlier on a Ratty mix I was listening to. I'd forgotten all about it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WB3IUEh5kmM

The 'End Of An Era EP' is possibly my favourite Formation release. Didn't know there was an unreleased version of Void of Extasy. Any audio floating about?

Awesome Formation Tunes...

In balance to my other thread I thought it only fair to make a thread about the many times Formation got it right, Starting with this one:



Love that tune to bits :cool:

Re: Great tunes/remixes that SS managed to ruin with a...

The truth is not many people are musically literate (myself included) so what sounds terrible to a finer ear sounds just fine to most people. I think most people can spot a bum note or things that are out of time, but you need some musical theory knowledge to spot the more subtle problems. Agreed. ...

I love Les Dawson, and this one here followed that video above: https://youtu.be/TtTzBnBzyDs?t=1m38s take a listen and it's surprisingly relevant to this thread!

They're definitely being quite canny releasing a few at a time to create a buzz around it like this...

It's not for me though - £85 for a useless vanity object? Allow it.

While we're on the subject of Formation, here's another release that always bugged me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEs5oHfz3X8 There is nothing wrong with that track, in fact it's fucking great! But the mastering is just horrific, and not even in a good lo-fi rugged sort of way either... imagine...

Also count me in the camp that never had a problem with the "want you now" remix piano. Remix is a HUGE favorite of me (that bass!!), piano always seemed to go OK with the pads to me, not like that "warning" track anyway. Maybe it just sounds wrong to my ears :wink: I've seen your comment on the Wa...

Re: The state of DJ'ing nowadays...

"Pitch Chase" DJs do seem to be very 'holier than thou' im my experience. Oh good lord you mustn't touch the platter! Bollocks IMO. Do whatever you need to, to make it work. This. I have friends who only got into mixing post Andy C so touching the platter is something that they just do not do. They...

BTW, I should probably point out that I certainly don't dislike Formation - I love that label, and the term 'ruin' is a little OTT... This thread was meant as a bit of fun regarding some of their more comical elements. Like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fps0ghVGOhM Even when it's a sample he...

That piano doesn't sound out of tune to me? Love that tune to bits! One of my favourite SS and EQ tracks. I know what you mean though, he has dropped plenty of clangers. The breakdown on Breakbeat Pressure, deary me! http://youtu.be/OBh_JKnZkHY :lol: Thing is, I love all the other elements of these...
