It's not hard notice his taste for house, techno, disco and even 8-beat! He is renowned international remixer who has released more than records among remixes and productions of his own, all of them within the best labels in the world. And with this job for Justin Harris and Oblack, Bret has yet made it one more time. This is a more nihilistic , mischevious and naive version of the original track. This would make a lovely vinyl release!
Full support! Nik Lawson - Great package from GU as always. Jeff Doubleu - dig On my Mind! Irfan Rainy City - Los Suenos - my fave here! This is I - Los suenos is the track for me, Lovely work Ivan. Great ep! Shivers - Feeeling this one - Gwan Ivan!
And uh and On my mind bagged for peak time Dean 'Sunshine' Smith - Los Suenos for me although all have a lovely accomplished warmth to them and could easily sit in any number of sets for me.
Good luck Ivan and continued growth and success to you bro :. Enter the e-mail address associated with your account. Click submit to have your new password e-mailed to you. If you don't remember your email address, but know other details about your account we can try to find it out for you.

Legwork's 2nd single comes from another one of our Texas compatriates, the indelible Brett Johnson, fresh off some amazing work on Classic, Get Physical, Rawax and other killer imprints.
The Mission harks back to some of our favourite dub-techno moments, but keeps it's own flare with Brett's signature robo-rhythms and chopped and screwed vocal cuts. Voice Watershed mix Voice 12" 2. Especially for the younger generations who were raised in the digital age. In the last two or three years vinyl got a new renaissance and sales went up again, but DJ culture today is a mixed up thing of people preserving the old art form and those pushing the limits of new DJ techniques.
Through the easy access to digital music people lose the touch to the real value of a song and its background. Digital DJ techniques often make the DJ more an entertainer than a real selector of quality music. I think a real DJ is someone that also teaches people where music comes from and where it can go and not just kicks a fat entertaining show. The music always comes first.
We should keep on spreading the true culture of digging for good music and presenting people the history and roots of the music. The connection of the past and the present is what makes up the culture and progression can only come from fusing these elements.
To just rely on technology will not lead forward. Highly competitive, which is good but at the same time more and more DJs are going too functional, synced and boring. In my case, I will keep on supporting underground music and will spin vinyl until the end. The tools of music production and editing have become more easily accessible and now even geared specifically toward DJs which is transforming the role of the DJ from a curator to a creator.
Dan Balis: I agree. The primary role of DJ is to curate a musical environment for a night. Eugene Cho: With all this focus on DJs today they are now turning into performers, which is weird because a DJ is traditionally someone behind some gear looking down and not engaging with the crowd.
So you end up with a crowd of people watching someone bobbing their head illuminated by a computer, which seems so detached from the crowd and to what you are hearing. Dan Balis: Yep. Now DJs throw cake in the crowd while they DJ.
Really Aoki? Un fortunately, the learning curve is so small these days. Having access to a ton of music and software mixing your songs together only increases the quantity of over quality of DJs. It used to be DJs made the Jesus pose during an epic breakdown. DJ culture, and electronic music in general, is in an amazing place where genre boundaries have broken down, the music has a wide appeal and the prejudice between vocal and instrumental music has almost broken down in the scene, if not outside it.
Like everything else the trend will pass. Staying true to our craft and keeping in mind what made us do what we do in the first place should be the main inspiration. Mostly attributable to the changes in distribution via the Internet, and the technology used to play music.
I think that this transition has some negative side effects, but is primarily a good thing for the record industry as a whole if it ever catches up. This is hard to say. There are different problems that face different countries all around the world. I guess the worst thing is the phenomenon of the super-star DJ.
When a name becomes more important than the music that they play. We see it a lot more in countries with a long history of nightlife like Italy. The problem becomes when promoters can just count on a good attendance from putting a well recognizable name on the bill and not giving two shits about the quality of the event.
