Tracks & Time #1

There is something great about a club record which gets all the elements right, from the backing track to the vocals, and still keeps it underground.
The dub backed Club Vocal Mix of Round Two’s New Day alongside Martin Buttrich’s remix, of Tracey Thorn – It’s All True, more recently, still do it for me.
I hope someday to hear either on the Room 1 sound system at Fabric, yet.


Origins of tracks

Browsing my feed on soundcloud I saw a remix of Sade – Shelter me by David Morales. I have a anther bootleg remix of this track on vinyl which is less percussive & deeper that I like very much by Musk Men. The discogs info on the vinyl releases does not reveal any info on who was responsible for the remix. Earlier this year though a digital remaster of the track was made and proper accreditation is made to DJ Hani.

Another track I discovered the source to was the origin of the spoken word on PQM – You are sleeping, the comments section pointed to a blog post on the gospel according to John by John Harris.


First mix of 2013

I’ve started buying music digitally trying to build up a collection again & thought I’d try recording something to see how it works out, nothing really planned, just picked an opening record & went from there, lots of room for improvement but it was fun to record.

Recorded on a pair of Vestax PDX-3000 Mk II turntables, Serato SL2, Allen & Heath Xone:22 mixer via a FocusRite Saphire LE firewire sound card on a MacBook Air.

Track list
Virginia, Solar & Poppcke – Our Days
Terry Lee Brown Jr – Chatterbox (Original Mix)
Vinayak A – Set Her Free (Martin Buttrich Remix)
Shur-I-Kan – Conundrum (Original Mix)
Two Right Wrongens – System Error
Maya Jane Coles – What They Say (Dyed Soundorom Remix)
Deetron – Starblazer (Original Mix)
Lance DeSardi – The Power Of Suggestion (Original Mix)
Danny Howells – Laid Out (Fully Horizontal Mix)
Guy Gerber – The Golden Sun and the Silver Moon (Original Mix)
Agoria – Dust feat Scalde (Rocco Vision Mix)

DJing with a digital setup has had me running into some strange issues, this time the disk my audio files were stored on was plugged into a USB hub, this caused very strange behaviour in Scratch Live, with the music cutting out on two separate occasions & not registering the music is playing.
My firewire sound card is connected via a thunderbolt adapter & whilst there’s sufficient power on the bus to power the unit without a separate power supply, it’s not possible to perform firmware updates via this adapter as I found out by temporarily bricking my device, luckily the firmware update completed successfully using a Mac which had a firewire port onboard and restored functionality.

Played a couple of Kerri Chandler mixes a few days back which has got me back in the mood for good old fashioned house music.

Kerri Chandler – Live @ GASM, London (Ladbroke Grove) – 1994

Kerri Chandler – Live @ Boiler Room 84, Madhouse Takeover – 29/03/2012


Found Digweeds first Bedrock mix on ipod today, which is based on the 1999 Essential Mix from Twilo, those smooth long blends on CD1 still give me goose bumps. So cool when able to pull those style of mixes on a pair of turn tables.

Now if only the default limit on YouTube could be slightly longer than 10 minutes so all 12+ minute prog house & 90’s New York house records could fit in, that’d be great. 🙂
