Re: DJ Fat Controller Interview @ Strictly Nuskool [Dec.2015

yeah i was thinking that too! ditto the bit about people with the lyrics tattooed on them. i'm glad he's humble about it cos surely the credit there is Janet Jackson?

then again i suppose it would sound a bit dismissive if he just said "ah it's just bits of other people's tunes" :lol:

Re: Hardcore hall of fame.

^ that was always my favourite of theirs. i think just cos i like the hoovers. i think it's the last tune on a Clarkee set i played a lot when i was first getting into oldskool.

Re: Awesome Formation Tunes...

those were the first two i was going to post actually paul :biggrin: i have to say i really don't notice much of this distortion that apparently wrecks some of the Formation tunes. i hear that the production sounds a bit rough round the edges in parts, but say the distortion at the start of Darkman ...

"Jazzy-doo-wop-rock-and-roll-soul-harmony oddity with a classic 'Drum n Bass' drum pattern/rhythm, making this historically the world's first 'dated' Drum n Bass record"....hmmm.

Re: Fusion This Saturday

in fairness i know they also have speedcore parties in Berlin that go on till early afternoon \:D/ i don't think that's as much to do with the style music as the overall culture. i don't know how that post connects with the fact you don't like much post-2000 rave music but there we go :biggrin: i do...

Re: An answer i had from Jack Smooth..

what rules did you have with yourself with re-using ideas in more than one track? being familiar with some other very prolific producers, you sometimes hear them reusing certain riffs or samples, or making subtle adjustments to things they've done before for other tracks. or using certain templates ...

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

i do sometimes suspect that the skill involved in being a vinyl DJ is often elevated so much is because it's a scene where the DJ was always so important, much more than the people who actually make the music. which doesn't really make sense - so that's why we all have to pretend that DJs are doing ...

Re: Fusion This Saturday

Some really messy people. I felt really sorry for one guy, he came up and tried to rest his pint on a ledge, but was clearly seeing double as he missed the ledge by at least 5 inches and the beer poured all over the floor. He then attempted to drink some water and spilled that everywhere too. At th...

Re: Fusion This Saturday

I think it's definitely true that having the right start to a set in a new style is important. Most DJs playing happy now don't really pitch it up like everyone used to in the 90s, so a decent 92 set doesn't need to be *that* much slower. But at the end of the day, there are plenty of people who lik...

Re: Fusion This Saturday

i really enjoyed it too, everything i was hoping for :) Mark EG was amazing. He was playing exactly what i hoped - all mid 90s hardtrance. Quite a few I recognise but don't know the names for. I've always liked that stuff but really got into it a lot more the past year or two. And I've never heard i...

Re: Fusion This Saturday

How can you leave to "Heart of gold", but listen to stuff like this (check 15.50 in for utter nonsense!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mls34z8M70c I'd rather listen to "HOF" on LOOP for 8 hours than this rubbish! haha where did that come from? are you deliberately looking up music you don't like ...

Re: Fusion This Saturday

in fairness, i'd be just as happy with a night of 92/93. and weirdly not knowing what to expect definitely adds to it a little :)
