Hello gang 

It's a brief emergence from the shadows to remind everyone there's a new Kelly Lee Owens album today. It's brightening up what is another damp and gloomy morning in That London. 

Hope everyone is bearing up. Let's stay positive for some dancing somewhere soon-ish.

I've come out of musical hibernation and have a new track:

Detailed feedback welcome.😁

So have got around to giving this a proper listen on some speakers. Might be a bit fast and over busy for me otherwise flippin cracking. Although I say over busy there is plenty of variation in there which is great just might have been me at the time.

Played loud this blows away any cobwebs

Still holding onto the tiniest glimmer of hope that four months is a long time in CoronaLandTM and I get to see Mr Avery and friends rave it up in Manchester in the third week of December...

Would make for a lovely Christmas present for you. Hope it happens

Team,

BBCR1’s essential mix last night from Rebüke has got some bloody good stuff on it, especially the last half hour. Got me dancing in the fields walking the dog this morning. And a pertinent reminder of how long since we’ve all been out...

Rebüke BBCR1 Essential Mix

 

Will try out, not sure I am in that space anymore though, may use it as a running soundtrack though

I have also been know to dance in fields with my dog on walks to certain tunes, she has no judgement at all. She is my friend

A few of my top Clubbing moments ever....

2003 - Being 19 years old, still pretty new to serious clubbing and seeing Eddie Halliwell at the Republic in Sheffield. It blew me away. I'd never really experienced anything like it.

2005 - Space Ibiza - Erick Morillo. It was live on Radio one. 

 

Erick Morillo. He had issues, and by the sounds of it - he wasn't the nicest bloke on the planet, to put it mildly... but he helped give me one of the best times of my life. For that, I am thankful. Here is an hour of it

Ermmm... he turned himself in for sexual assault a few weeks ago... probably won't be commemorating him

I met Erick several times (my mate was his booking agent) including before his set in NYC Downlow last year.


He was always pleasant and welcoming, but there were stories that started to emerge which cast a shadow over him. I wasn’t the least bit surprised by the allegations made against him. 
 

A great DJ, but a very troubled soul, I had a lot of sympathy for him after his very public mental breakdowns, but the recent news is disgusting.

I think the point was more about remembering a fun time had listening to his music, rather than commemorating the man. 
As much as we would condemn his alleged actions, we should be capable of separating the artist and the art. 
If the art is to one’s taste, why not still listen? Babies and bath water and all that. 

How many people still listen to MJ? 

Lots, because his music has merit. 

How many people still listen to Rolf Harris? 

Very few, as his music didn’t have such artistic merit.

Hey guys, hope everyone is well? For those of you who enjoy podcasts, this lot have been getting me through the last six months. A great mix of guests from pioneers to party animals. I've tagged the Mark Archer episode (which is great, btw) but there are two seasons worth to get through, all around an hour long. As you can imagine, there are some wonderful stories to be told. Available on most podcast platforms

Bicep live stream starting in an hour

Did anyone watch this? Heard mixed reviews, the few clips I've heard of the new stuff sounded fantastic, and the visuals looked A+, but apparently there was more old than new? (Not sure how accurate that is?)

A couple of decent Essential Mixes have cropped up over the weekend. Kevin Saunderson with something new and (thread favourite) Haai from a couple of years back.

Came in here to post about the Kevin Saunderson essential mix. Great stuff. Made me hanker for a big night out since I only squeezed in one since the start of the year. Hoping 2021 we'll all be able to hit the dance floor again .

I missed it but also thought the snippets looked good. I am a big fan.

 

That said, I am always intrigued to know what they are actually doing to warrant the label 'LIVE'. I've not seen those keyboards ever played. they seem to be twiddling knobs a little. So assuming they remix/ edit the tracks weeks before to give a different feel, different intros etc. So what are they actually doing live thats potentially different each time? Assuming they are using something like Ableton? This is not LIVE music. At best this can be called 'Hybrid'. It does annoy me a bit when the term 'LIVE' is used. Is this not just what Sasha used to do with with Maven/ Ableton sets, just with their own tracks?

I still think it's awesome but I wish there was a different collective term for it.

Been wondering this! 

My guess is:

They've got a few launchpads for triggering the Ableton clips, so in that sense they can play with the structure of the tunes and when they bring stuff in. They've also got a Pioneer Toriaz which might be doing similar stuff (?), and has the filters from a Prophet 6 so they may use this for filtering tunes (possibly).

Then with the 101's I'm wondering if they're receiving MIDI from Ableton so they don't have to play the melodies themselves, but they can fuck about with the synth patches. But then I thought the 101's didn't have patch memory... 

Then some physical delay and reverb pedals and the like?

I'm probably completely wrong on this! Love trying to work it all out though.

Other than the Chemical Brothers/Orbital etc, the act for me who has perfected the live act most recently is George FitzGerald, proper good stuff.

Yes I think that seems to be what's going on. It's still interesting to watch don't get me wrong - and I can't wait for the new album.
