break a leg

Rob Instigator 01.31.2013 09:53 AM

Is it already over?

floatingslowly 01.31.2013 10:48 AM

Good luck.

My shit's too fucked up for dancefloors. Maybe the headshop....

What kind of deck do you run, Fox? I use a Numark NS6 with Serato - Twitch software.

floatingslowly 01.31.2013 10:49 AM

Fox, whatchu think of Jay Weed?

SYRFox 01.31.2013 11:09 AM

nope, not over yet - right now it's only 5pm in france!

bytor & floslo, i'm mixing via traktor but without the sync function (so it's actually quite similar to mixing with a cdj). i'm using a traktor S2 - they were mad cheap a year ago so i thought i'd get one considering the price of cdjs.
oh and jay weed is very good. though he's really one of those artists who i enjoy whenever i hear one of their tracks, think i should listen to more often, then never do for some reason

floatingslowly 01.31.2013 11:18 AM

My friend has a custom deck (old school arcade buttons) thar runs Traktor software, which he swears by. Mine will run it too (with remapping) but I'm too lazy and Twitch works well enough for me.

Check out Jay's old FACT mix, I still listen to it often. Hell, I'm going to listen right now.

Forum really liked that. I can't be fucked to delete the dupes.

SYRFox 01.31.2013 11:25 AM

tracklist looks amazing, anyone who manages to mix dj bone, digital mystikz and demdike stare in one set deserves props. i'll check it out tomorrow, thanks!
speaking of fact mixes - i don't know if you listened to mk's, but i thought it was mad grooving. the first track alone is worth it

I've been so busy that I haven't looked in a few days, but I pretty much live by FACT (thanks to Glice). I find inspiration in how other people mix.

Last I checked, itunes said that I'd listened to the Air France mix 550+ times.... lololol

floatingslowly 01.31.2013 12:07 PM

Fuck there'a a rad unreleased Canblaster track in the middle of this Jay Weed mix that fucking owns me.

now that's dedication
mixes are definitely an inspiration. you should listen to ben ufo's rinse: 16. the guy is only a dj, he does not produce, and it shows - insanely creative mixing. iirc at one point he mixes a track in, then mixes another on top of that, stops track #2, mixes a third track over the third one, stops it again, then finally fades into another track. stunning. i should be seeing tomorrow in a night that also has karenn (aka blawan + pariah) live, should be a good one

SYRFox 02.01.2013 07:53 AM

well, it was good fun
