Sasha & Digweed – NYE 2002, Live from MTV

Filed under: General — Tags: — Sevan @ 12:18 am

This is without a doubt my favourite set from the two though I believe the beginning may be Sean Cusick & Jimmy Van M warming up, following by Sasha & Digweed on the warmup.
Either way, this set has always been with my since I downloaded it fresh from DJ Mixes 2k back in the day but I’d never seen the video that goes with it. Stumbled across it just now by accident 🙂

This set is sometimes mislabelled as Sasha & Digweed – Live at Fabric which they played a couple of weeks earlier.

Origins of tracks

Filed under: General — Tags: , — Sevan @ 7:44 pm

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.

The Cafe Mambo – 20 Years of Ibiza Chillout re
For the past few of years, Pete Gooding has posted his sets from Cafe Mambo in Ibiza, recently (this month?) there was a compilation released that’s also compiled by Pete Gooding called “The Cafe Mambo – 20 Years of Ibiza Chillout“. The compilation compliments those sets as an easy way to obtain unmixed copies of some of the tracks featured on those mixes across 3 CD’s.

First mix of 2013

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — Sevan @ 5:25 pm

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.

Returning to DJing after a hiatus

Filed under: General — Tags: , — Sevan @ 11:31 am

From my first days of exploring the nightlife in Brighton as a teenager I wanted to be a DJ, so I started buying records & eventually got a pair of decks & taught myself how to mix. Giving up in the late 2000s because I never made the transition to digital & finding the records I wanted either not being available on vinyl or being at a premium.
My interest was rekindled recently when a colleague asked If I wanted to play at a joint birthday party, It was disastrous & I struggled to mix but the whole thing was so much fun, digging through records trying to find tracks (a strong mental note being kept through out the process that this wasn’t going to be a Sasha tribute) & I got the opportunity to play again this weekend, at a small house party, it was much more fun this time as I let go, starting off with Salt City Orchestras remix of Marshall Jeffersons Mushrooms & finishing off with Salt City Orchestras remix of Underworld Cups with lots of different styles of tracks in between.

Next step is to get myself a copy of traktor & start recording again, It’s been too long.

The last attempt at recording a mix at length a long while ago (it’s a bit rough round the edges).

Track list
Delerium – Silence (Santuary Mix)
2 Smoking Barrels – Bases Loaded (Naive Dub)
Dousk – Estrange
Skydiver – Timeless
Nalin & Kane – Rise In (16B Dub)
Mainline – Innerspace
Age of Love – Age of Love (Jam & Spoon ‘Watch Out For Stella’ Remix)

Bad Timing

Filed under: General — Tags: , — Sevan @ 8:30 pm

I saw an interview with Carlos Santana a few years back on a documentary where he discussed drugs, he spoke about the comparison of LSD to Cocaine, to paraphrase “LSD set your spirit free where as cocaine enslaved it”.
I was looking on youtube to see if I could find the interview again & found this clip about taking LSD instead.
