  1. @Simcut do you have the missing segments of this particular broadcast? Hoping it’s on one of those tapes you’ve found... did you say you have around 10 more shows still to digitise from 1999?
  2. Another belter - get downloading if you missed it
  3. I love this mix, a different direction from Jules here and a nice short mix to download on the move
  4. Jacey B has it right there of course
  5. And you have hit the nail on the head there sir. Jules was the "gateway DJ" for millions of people, opening their ears to the scene which then spurred us into discovering the tiny little subgenres that dance music has now fragmented into. As a DJ in his day, the magnifying glass was on him like no other in the UK, so the "consistency" argument is one brought up all the time. I've lost count the number of times I hear people say to me "I saw him perform a flawless set, so gathered my mates to see his next gig only to witness an inexplicably shocking set" leaving everyone bewildered and, well, pretty pissed off. Maybe every DJ has this, depending on the venue, their attitude, and what's in their box? But I like to think the Archive here proves those really good radio shows and live sets which were recorded outweigh all the shockers, so long may we relive them
  6. Could be a coding error in which case we need to find another source from the web, as I don't have the original rip other than what is uploaded here. I will look into this - thanks

  8. We all remember the days of taping shows, just something loads of us did, completely independently. Also, as soon as Westwood's "bombs" went off every Friday night at 11:00pm I'm sure someone up there really must have heard a million dance fans press "stop" on their cassette players Welcome to the site!

    New Shows?

    We think we have exhausted every source out there, both in terms of audio and tracklistings, so unless we get contacted that someone has a stash of cassettes somewhere they want us to digitize and upload on here, or indeed they upload something new themselves, what we have in the archives is pretty much it. I do know I have the "end of year" Saturday show from 2000 somewhere split across 2 minidiscs which I would love to find. Once I do, you can be sure it will be uploaded straight away
  10. Worth a chat with a member on here called Louk. I know he recorded similar local radio shows and you never know, you could stumble across a goldmine of tapes
  11. One for the commute tomorrow! Thanks Aza
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. Wonderful stuff Aza, hope all is well and I'll be downloading this for the morning commute to work tomorrow
  15. Happy New Year folks! Thought some people might find this interesting 00:00:00 ▶ Intro 0:02:24 ▶ Chapter One - Shouldn’t you stop being a waiter? 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
  16. Excellent mix! Would love a tracklisting... there's a few in there that have escaped even my mind! -Spanish guitar track at 50 mins?
  17. 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
  18. Any hyperlink to how we go about this?
  19. The percussion reminds me of Cosmic Grapa, could be another track on the same release? See below
  20. 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!
  21. 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
  22. We're aware most of the audio archive is offline whilst we move server. So for your patience, here is some more new audio from the archives for you. Thanks again Simcut!
  23. 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!!
