Top ones mentioned there!

This came to my mind the other day aswell, samples from Robocop (one of my all time faves):

There are probably others with Robocop samples too...

Ableton. It's pretty simple, but powerful and versatile. That and Audacity for audio editing. Also hardware (synths, drum machine, sampler, tb-3) used with those DAWs

Used to have Logic Audio years ago...

And the very first I had was probably Rave Ejay. :D

I'd say it can be bit of both, probably.

I just listened the first two mixes and I'm pretty sure there aren't any post '94 tunes. The latter I don't know, but will have a listen.

And the way those are put together, it doesn't sound like a standard 1s and 2s thing either... I think I actually know someone who could shed more light on this issue. :)

Here's one top ten list of movies sampled in classic oldskool tunes.

Any others worth a mention?

I'd say Blade Runner at least, sampled in this one (and probavbly in few others): m.youtube.com/watch?v=F-wSngqX9Vc

Heikki Harmaa replied to the topic 'Your all-time favourite mc?' in the forum. 1 month ago

Many great mc's mentioned there.

Could have added Robbie Dee to my faves aswell. I suppose he mc'd a lot for DJ Ratty (probably many others too) at some point...

Who actually chose the mc's bitd?Promotors only or did some djs have some trusted mc's who travelled and worked with them?

Didn't know he tried his hand at (co-)production side of things as well.

Also, the Eternity studio mixes he did a few, just heard one the other day ('94ish) - and it was brilliant. @ Mixcloud

-Mad P

Yes, he was.


I found some info of GE and his setup on this old Fantazia interview:

www.fantazia.org.uk/DJs/gereal.htm

“Four deck mixing is not simultaneously mixing four different records at one time. This is possible but very hard. If you imagine sometimes two mixed tracks clash, piano, vocals or strings sections. So if you had four it would be hard keeping all the tempo’s spot on and the result would be in danger of sounding a total musical jumble. My concept like that of DJ Sparrow, is quick mixing, which even through I say so myself, is that I am one of the quickest in the UK.”


Hardcore man...

Never heard his sets before - well not until recently - but what a dj!

Only heard a few oldskool and early jungle mixes (92-93ish), both studio and raves - and their all brilliant and creative. Multiple copies played, sampling etc...
Sadly he passed away years ago.

Anyone else rate him?
Did you ever catch him play at a rave you attended bitd?
