    Jules @ Peach 25th

    I completely agree with this. For me Jules was the ultimate "gateway" DJ - very flawed, very inconsistent, but capable of truly sensational sets and unique passages of atmosphere. He opened a generation of people up to a variety of electronic music.... you only need to look at everybody on these forums all with their preferred niches and subgenres that they've discovered. But the common origin was Jules.
  2. Interesting read here, especially the bit about the (often forgotten but incredible) disco scene in the 1970s which was what really drove Technics to improve their SL-1100s http://mixmag.net/feature/the-evolution-of-the-turntable
  3. Wonderful stuff Aza, hope all is well and I'll be downloading this for the morning commute to work tomorrow

Isn’t there anything else you’d like to do? 00:04:52 ▶ Chapter Two - R&S is doing great, but why don’t you start a label? 00:09:27 ▶ Chapter Three - We just wanted to make good music, release it, and party! 00:16:16 ▶ Chapter Four - You could just put a DJ name on a T-shirt and everybody wanted one 00:23:08 ▶ Chapter Five - There is the bag, figure it out 00:24:59 ▶ Chapter Six - When you went out or you played a Bonzai track, you just knew the roof would come down 00:30:06 ▶ Chapter Seven - We said, M.I.K.E., this is the A-side 00:40:48 ▶ Chapter Eight - And then all of a sudden, you lost everything 00:46:08 ▶ Chapter Nine - Let the Bonzai flag fly again

    Excellent mix! Would love a tracklisting... there's a few in there that have escaped even my mind! -Spanish guitar track at 50 mins?

    Minidisc

    Hi Ankarra, per my PM if you have any issues let me know. I have an MDS-JB980 professional deck which I can rip quite easily from (including if recorded in MDLP which doubled or quadrupled the recording space, albeit at lower quality). It is a beast of a machine with digital inputs and outputs. It recorded many a Jules show for me back in the day! Because of the great build quality people are still buying them up today to use them as a high quality slave DAC (Digital to Analog converter) in the middle, which is quite clever. Anyway however, to preserve the digital format I transfer Minidisc to CD-R via S/PDIF, into my Pioneer PD-609 CD recorder , then rip the CD to mp3 in my PC. A bit cumbersome, but it was the only way I could think of that I was content with to ensure the entire process involved only digital routes, not analog. If only they made decent PC sound cards with digital inputs and outputs and I could skip this! Again, a great machine: Minidiscs were awesome back in the day, packing in almost everything of what was audible into a physically smaller space than a CD. They were encoded in Sony's ATRAC compression algorithm. I read somewhere this was equivalent to a mp3 today encoded at about 256kbps

    The percussion reminds me of Cosmic Grapa, could be another track on the same release? See below

    Audio archive - back online

    Just letting you know our audio archive is back online now. Sorry for the delay but we had some issues moving the files to a new server and storage system, which are now all fixed. Members can download again to their heart's content.... Some 68GB of Jules Audio!
  10. The audio archive is temporarily offline but should be up in 48 hours - sorry about that but we are moving servers. This set is unquestionably in my all-time favourites, glad you enjoyed
  11. Been a while since we had some new audio available for you all, so Simcut has dutifully dug out another one of those very special tapes for us from under the sofa... Nearly 20 years old but some serious gems on here. Enjoy!!

    RECENT JJ RETROMIXES 96

    Wonderful stuff - will be listening to these tonight Gutted to hear about those tapes though!!
  13. Yes that's a new one I just came across too, apologies. A workaround for anybody trying to view their private messages, click on the envelope sign in the top right and then "Go To Inbox" link... We are upgrading the site on Saturday which hopefully will fix this. We also have some brand new audio for you all to devour coming soon
