Re: What do people look for in oldskool mixes these days?

On my side, I think it's pretty clear what interests me the most - crazy tracks I've never heard / heard of, energetic sets with lots of tracks chucked in fast even if sloppy. That's just personal preference (as are all the factors I mentioned), I'm definitely open to other stuff too, and quite enjo...

What do people look for in oldskool mixes these days?

This might come across as tl;dr and crazy, but I'm stuck in front of a pc for a bit killing time so I figured I'd write this up... What it is exactly that gets people excited about (newly recorded) oldskool mixes in 2015? With 22-25 years worth of mixes from basically the same finite pool of tracks,...

Re: incomplete darkness pre-order

Until this release finally comes out it really is "incomplete darkness" (ala the thread title) :)

Kinda wish that FC ragga vocal tune was on it instead of another remix but ehh can ya do

Re: If you could have a peak in one DJ's collection...

What Nebkins said is true. At this point not even sure I'd be as excited to dig through a top name "classic" DJ's collection.... if it had to be still-active DJs, I'd be curious to see what someone like Ratty still had kicking around in the way of old dubs and dats? Guessing he prob has a bunch of s...

Re: Dub plate Ids?

I recognize at least one but have no intention of helping you decide which dubplates to charge 350 pounds OBO for on Ebay versus those released ones you "only" charge 100-150 pounds OBO for.

Dev/Null - BTTO Radio 93-95 mix May 7th 2015

Hey, here's my set from last Sunday's Jungletrain show. I put a fair bit of time into selecting tunes to play in this and there's some crazy not-so-typical stuff in it especially for the anoraks, so hopefully some of you enjoy it :) https://soundcloud.com/devnull-dj/devnull-btto-radio-may-17th-2015 ...

Re: Unreleased Tracks

I think many of the people who had them BITD (DJs) have forgotten they've got em/moved on, sold or traded them.Is there really a big market for an unreleased dub from 25 years ago? There is definitely a big market for it. Search ebay for Bamz's recent auctions.... some tracks go for 50, 70, 100 pou...

Re: Unreleased Tracks

Also, even though I wouldn't turn down a copy , gotta say "silent voices" dub mix is one of the more unnecessary alt versions in my view. The released version is such an absolute classic and sounds so amazing and perfect, those massive heavy bass stabs are such a clear improvement on the dub mix. I ...

Re: Unreleased Tracks

Very few people who have rare dubplate alt mixes like those are going to want to share them, at least not in a full/dub-cuttable quality. Like you said, a lot of the appeal of stuff like that is the rarity and exclusivity of the tunes. Hence the reason you want them is the very reason there is littl...
