Twonz I would believe is more into mixing than track selection, same with Bass Frog, and Acid Pimp. Rolando is a great DJ who plays awesome tracks and knows how to mix, I don't see how you could perceive that he puts mixing above track selection just by seeing him play.

Let's clear this up for once and for all as I don't think my point is clear enough. Yes it is about the music but what I was getting at is a good DJ will mix better and remix instead of just playing a good track and letting that do the work. Fucken hit players and slaves to someone else if you can not work over a mix I say. Twonz, Murrat, Rolando, etc all work the music over so it's not as important what they play as the track is only a foundation and the mix will make the music. If you want someone who can just play great tracks and not mix buy a laptop or a mixed CD because it would be a sure of a lot better. I know because so much shit has been around over the years and people are just happy with the so called ok mixes everything degenerated technically and now the vibe is gone to and all you get is a bunch of record searching wankers who think cuz I have this in my case I am good. YAAA K!

I still can't agree with that, I agree with the remixing dealy, but honestly I've seen Rolando mix straight and remix via doubles etc. its good but it wouldn't have been half as fun or interesting if the track he was doing doubles with wasn't Fix - Flash, the track made the double copying AWESOME, the double copying itself wasn't all that special, especially if it was done with a mediocre track.

Your just mad cuz you can't mix :p
Anyways I am not arguing the merits that a track can not help as I posted a long ways back in one of the posts but rather that a good mix and i proven it time after time when I played how a mix can do more. I have had people say I never thought that track was anygood until they heard it worked over. Get down with it biaaach and you will learn how far the mix can take you and not be a slave to just track selection. Now I am not saying also that some tracks are not special and there is a time to that you let a track play as it stands on its own. More often than not its just a lame excuse for lack of skills though. People wonder why nights fail and scenes faulter when nothing fresh happens.

I am working on a few things but most my time at the moment is focused on getting a few things done with the productions. But don't worry I will make sure everyone gets a chance to see me trainwreck all night long.

hahaha.

all i know is that i don't think i'd ever play a track that couldn't stand up on it's own (the only exception being straight tools like accappellas or drum tracks).

i own tracks that don't stand up on their own, but i don't play them.

for the non-uppity, techno-isn't-life, open-minded, techno fans, your mixes are great, Todd. Looking forward to getting to a Pusher event sometime soon. I can't speak for the other crowd as my neck isn't long enough to get my head that far up my ass.

Anyways, CARL CRAIG!!!! I've been listening to one of his older sets [10 Years Out Soon (La Rocca, Spain) from 2002] and have really been digging the way his programming seems to come hard with the beats. His own trax are a little odd (see Carl Craig & Laurent Garnier - Demented for a big WTF) but I still dig his live sets.

When was the last time he was in Toronto?
