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

Tango - Impact EP suffers really badly from that. It's weird, they are nice quality pressings in general so like you say must have been a problem at the mastering stage. Other ones from the same era sound really loud and punchy. That Siren tune is a great example of the Formation sound, it's all ove...

I must admit I'm intrigued as to whether it is out of tune or not, I always thought I had a good ear for that kind of thing! Funny how people hear things differently. :)

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 Love the first part of the track though. That label has...

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

Why are you calling one of the most accomplished producers in this scene a clown? Have a bit of respect, everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Also, you have completely misunderstood what I was saying. Work on my lock! How about you go work on how to not be so patronising.

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

Haha not at all, its an interesting conversation. Its very common to find tracks that are musically in key, these days I leave mixes in as long as I can if it sounds good and often have two musical parts going. What happens then? You are screwed and its the curse of every DJ who touches the vinyl (m...

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

It's the mixing equivalent of driving in a zig zag rather than a straight line. I wouldnt say that, its not vastly different really. When you make the adjustment you plant your thumb of finger so you can move the pitch back to the correct position afterwards, you're not just moving it back to a ran...

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

Theres nothing hard about that, but that is exactly the point. What happens when you are mixing two tracks with something musical going on at the time the beats start to drift? You wont be able to make that stealth adjustment without it being audiable. If you watch this video you will see the way An...

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

Pitch chasing is the way forward, you don't hear the adjustments like you do touching the vinyl / platter. It takes an awful lot of practice though, and you need your pitches to be working well and not worn out.

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

Yeah it's easy to learn the basics, I managed to get tracks in time within 30 minutes of using a pair of turntables but to do it to the level that Andy C does it on three decks, purely using the pitch control to make adjustments without anything slightly drifting over the space of an hour or more is...

Re: Fusion This Saturday

Fusion started when Happy was booming, so why would it bother with anything previous? They started in 92, Portsmouth Guildhall. I don't think that era is dead in a rave like that at all, its the best dance music out there it just needs a wiser selection. I mean don't come on at a prime time 11:30 s...
