Re: are there afterhours events in your neck of the woods

Toronto has an interesting mix of clubs/spaces. You have your more main-stream venues like Guverment / Footwork - and those tend to keep going for a bit after the bar closes,. They tend to wrap up at around 4/5am - although I have seen them go until between 6-8 before. (Last call is 2:00am here) The...

Re: Discussion – Harmonic Mixing.

Harmonic Mixing is just another tool in your box. How and when you use it is up to you. Some times, mixing sounds that sound wrong together end up sounding right, and harmonic mixing wont help much there. Other times, Harmonic Mixing might open your ears up to new possibilities that you didn't previ...

Re: Sneak Peek At The Future Of NI TRAKTOR

I'll give an analogy to early web development: There was once a time where JavaScript was frowned upon. Developers and users alike would cry "It's annoying! it's only use is for pop-ups, advertisements, resizing windows and annoying the user". Fast-forward to today, and you would need to be living u...

Re: Sneak Peek At The Future Of NI TRAKTOR

Wow, some people in this thread are rather old and curmudgeonly arn't they? Any time anything related to digital DJing crops up - they throw a fit. Yes, you do get people who 'abuse' it, use it to auto-match their songs and prance around doing Jesus poses, instead of maximizing the use of the techno...

Re: Luciano prepares new mix cd

Not the biggest Luciano fan (more a 'just doesn't do it for me'), but now and then a bit of cheese can be a good thing. I will also admit that my tolerance for cheese / fluff tends to go up greatly if I am at an outdoor daytime event. Sun on your face, cocktail in hand - the event starts to become m...

Re: Have you read this? Unfortunately it's true

It's happened in Toronto a few times, but usually the promoters / DJs are good about it. More often than not, there is some issue with visa / border / customs / weather that prevents a DJ from getting there. In most cases, if the promoters know far enough in advance they will update their event list...

Re: RA top 100 lists

The RA lists tends to reflect what has been 'trendy' for that year. When the minus sound/minimal was all the rage, the list reflected that. This year is reflecting the 'trends' of this year. This isn't the 'Best and most influential DJs of all time!' its more 'Who was making waves THIS year.' And an...
