digging for techno

    It's been quite sometime since I've had the opportunity to play techno so tonight, I dug through all my techno records (from the old Electrotech days.......) and I have to say, they are fawkin wicked.

    I never knew how much I missed playing techno until tonight. Now all I have to do is locate all my old show tapes from 1groove so I can reminisce about the glory days of being able to slam peoples ears with hard-ass techno.

    Why do you like techno? Care to share? Is it YES to techno and NO to tech-house?

    Electrotech will return.....someday..........

    I truly believe that misstress barbara's set at bittersweet won a lot of hearts that maybe thought techno was a bit repetative and bleep-bleep and just loved both house and trance...and although her set was not strictly limited to techno,she transformed those who never thought they would enjoy a techno set let alone admit to LOVING it all the way through!

    ritchie does it to me,millsy does it to me,claude young does it to me,from adam beyer 12's to kraftwerk,the evolution of detroit's mainstay underground to europe's new reign...I LOVE IT ALL!!!

    give him a second chance?

    to show up? (because he didn't show up to the d12 party?)

    or to impress you?
    jus wonderin...cuz i thought he had the best set of the night at the phryl party.

    much different style than mull and beyer though..comparing apples and oranges.

    No man, a second chance to impress me... I saw him at the Phryl party (International Center i think..) and thought he was rather sloppy with his tricks. But seeing as everyone sings his praises, i need to check him out a second time.

    By the way - i check out your 'Charly - Superwoman' track...i really like it! There's one part in it that the prominent synth line is totally off, but it's still a great track. Deserves a remix though for sure!

    Yeah, I know what you mean by sloppy...but thats Claude.
    He's coming from the Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke, Murat school of djing. :D

    I just found his set to have the most energy and kept me in his room the longest...although I was (physically) running between rooms when I heard certain tracks dropped.

    Spacerwoman is such a classic track.
    I love it. :D

    Very hard to find...but there is a rare whitelabel that someone from Holland (rumoured to be Ference (I.F.)) put out a couple years ago with Number of Names- Shari Vari and a couple other rare italo joints on it. They were sellin them at DEMF two years ago.

    Don't know if someone has remixed Charly's Spacerwoman...but I just picked up the new Shari Vari remixes off of Gigolo- by Ectomorph and Hacker VS Vitalic. Haven't peeped them. Knew I would dig it without a listen. :D

    That's wicked...it's actually Shari Vari's Number of Names that got me interested in dance music. That and Laidback's Whitehorse.

    Let me know how the rmxs sound...I might just have to get a copy.

    Claude @ phryl was wicked. @m I can give you some reasons why he was sloppy, since i had to open up that room with what goes down as the worst set of my life.

    / \
    / \ [approximately 15ft]
    / \
    l. monitor r.monitor
    / \
    / \ [approx. 30ft]
    / \
    [nice big concrete wall]

    The monitors were at chest height sitting on top of bins strapped on so we couldn't move them, the part of the system that was in front of the DJ reflected sound off that nice wall only 45 feet away. On top of all that during my set all three needles skated across three seperate records. Since the monitors were at chest height it also meant that they were in the same plane as the needles. The sound guy was of little help, put some pads underneath the tables and said nothing about the monitors, or the fact that you could barely reference anything on this shite setup. Besides the main system in front of the DJ if you remember there were also two miscellaneously placed bins also facing the wall, and also reflecting towards the dj. In such a large concrete room [as a sound engineer] you would automatically put the monitors close to the DJ for good reference and to block out most of the reflections coming back at them.

    Everyone in that room had a bad night mixing, Algo's records skipped all over the place, Claude had a hard time keeping the needle in the groove for all his tricks, and Jay Denham could barely hear what the hell he was playing.

    At the end of the night we decided that you don't need any knowledge of physics, or the concepts of sound dynamics to own a sound system, just about $30,000 and a truck.

    Anyone who saw Claude at Alien UFO in 96-97? knows exactly how much Claude kicks ass. He destroyed me that night. I still consider it to be one of the catalysts of my dj'ing career/hobby/life.
