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

Is it easy to match beats? Sure. Is it easy to match beats and hold a mix down for 2 minutes on hammered turntables? NOPE! I would say that it should be easy on good turntables to mix for more than 2 minutes if need be... ... on hammered turntables is a completely different proposition... if there ...

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

Agree, I've tried it... I didn't have to do a thing except; choose, cue and start... mixes locked for full track duration. I have no problem at all with DJs who do this. Beat mixing is easy, there is nothing outrageously skilled to claim or prove by being able to match beats. It's the same compariso...

Don't get me started on ITIL :lol: :lol: Went for a job recently where they were asking for the ITIL qualification & I asked why, they said HR just put it on the job spec as everyone else seems to ask for it. I also pointed out that there website was vulnerable as it was running an old version of P...

Re: An answer i had from Jack Smooth..

@Ron - rather tedious IT work in the airline industry mate! ](*,) But I guess it does allow me a fair amount of working from home, which allows for better pursuits ;) I had better bring this tangent back on track with a question for Jack Smooth! :oops: It is probably already answered in thread tbh,...

Re: An answer i had from Jack Smooth..

I'll obviously let Ron answer too, but based on the many DAT/WAVs I've managed to accumulate over the years the majority of early 90s hardcore was completely unmastered in the studio, it was down to the talent (or lack) of the cutting engineer to cut it nice and loud. I've seen very few original re...

Re: An answer i had from Jack Smooth..

Ron, it' dificult to remember everything that's been asked in this thread, so sorry if i'm repeating a question: 1. Once you had signed for MCA, did things change production wise? Did they ask you to record tracks at their studios? If so, did you bring along your favourite bits of studio kit? 2. Th...

Re: Jack Smooth interview

Phil's reply is interesting, I know people who worked for his distribution company over the years and they also share the opinion it was terribly managed. Some people seem to confuse success with being in the right place at the right time. Enough morons ran a record label back in the day, it wasn't...

Re: An answer i had from Jack Smooth..

Ron, what's your favourite Kraftwerk tune? What about Jean-Michel Jarre? I kinda grew up listening to him as my dad and one of my older brothers were into him and loads of weird, uncool electronic music (and dodgy easy listening) I really like Aerodinamik, that's a newer one (so simple but so rich ...
