  1. I have see this documentary before. Well worth a watch. I absoutley love the guy on crutches dancing at 38 seconds in!
  2. I listened to this last weekend again after searching for info on DuMonde. Some really iconic tuneage!
  3. Come on chaps, we're all friends here!
  4. Interesting. I haven't considered transcoding to FLAC. I rename all my downloads and put them on a RAID NAS. I import them to iTunes and convert that file to apple lossless for general listening. The wavs are also copied to an External HDD and imported into Traktor. I am probably going to start burning CDs again though with vinyl rips and downloads with inconsistent bpms.
  5. That's a shame, I wonder why? I only ever go lossy if I absoutley have to.
  6. I don't think it will ever end, as there will always be new finds, but we certainly have passed the peak and new discoveries will drop off in frequency. I have uploaded a few mixes to Fuzzy which have yet to be included and I have some recording which haven't been ripped yet; there will always be similar situations. Getting R1 to release its archive might not be impossible either. There was considerable discussion about it serveral years ago but sadly nothing happened. I am optimistic that this will happen at some point in the future.
  7. I would love to hear this now. Dance Anthems on Sunday was frequently hilarious with the callers in, and I'd be interested to hear how Jules handled it. Now that you have mentioned it I think I can just about remember this, however probably the power of suggestion rather than any concrete memory shaken out of my brain cells.
  8. On what other occasions did Jules cover for Tong on the Essential Selection? I recollect this happend a handfull of times, but I question my memory.
  9. Turn up and press play on a CD of the mix which isn't even yours!

  11. Interesting video I stumbled upon on YouTube tonight. While not abusive in the slightest, I could definitley be better at looking after my collection. Mainly aimed at vinyl collectors rather than DJs but some useful information none the less.
  12. I watched this last night. Quite an interesting historical piece. His thoughts on tonearm weight are a bit extreme though; even when playing out I would make sure the weight on the platter was as low as I could get away with. Interesting technique with the crossfader/fader combo too, I might try that tonight. My first turntables were the Omnitronic belt drives which came with a Numark Bluedog Mixer in, I think 1998. I sold them to a couple when I got my Technics and despite them being poor quality, I felt quite sad letting them go. Drtim, you are right it was a massive buzz when you nailed a mix on poor equipment.
  13. Those vinyl pressings of the GC compilations go for some money now.
  14. The collective knowledge on this board is superb. Keep the faith guys...
