  1. Absolutely brilliant, Aza! Loved it. It felt like a true Radio One broadcast with a certain Mr O'Riordan doing voiceovers.
  2. What a great idea this was. A real shame I was hibernating at the time. Will deffo give the mix a listen.

    Digital Society 6th Birthday

    I can't even remember if I did make it! I don't think I did, as I was there in May for my stag do.
  5. Some really good tracks listed there and it has inspired me to get Gatecrasher Red on Good to see some old faces still around on here.
  6. I've been hearing this track on commercial stations a lot and the vocal sounds like its a sample from years ago, perhaps late 90s. Am I dreaming this or can anyone put me out of my pain? It might be something by Mrs Woods?

    Digital Society 6th Birthday

    Indeed. Unfortunate circumstances with Little Steve's Dad last time, but he has recovered well, so we're both looking forward to this one. Sounds good! Enjoy yourself, Tom. :thumbsup:
  9. Fair point, but there's little I can do when the wife wants the radio on in the car. Oh...and what's a "tape" :thumbsup:
  10. At least its not me going a bit la-la at least! Cheers, Tom.
  11. A trip back to Leeds is now booked and timed perfectly this time :thumbsup: PAUL VAN DYK SEAN TYAS TRITONAL ALEX MORPH BEN GOLD JORDAN SUCKLEY (BBC Radio 1) CLAUDIA CAZACU JUVENTA WILL HOLLAND http://www.digitalsociety.co.uk/events/
  12. Unfortunately I've had to cancel this trip.
  13. Tim, That would be great if you could make it. I'm meeting (Little) Steve there so it would be quality if you can make it. My mobile number hasn't changed, if you still have it. I seem to have my old avatar back, too - Thanks :thumbsup:
  14. I never thought I'd see the words"Justin" and "Bieber" on this forum. What has become of dance music? And what's all this EDM thing? Yanks thinking they have found some new form of music?
  15. Quadders! Still wielding your medieval sword I see :thumbsup: I suspect the night will see the decent DJs on early playing warm-up sets, or after PVD by which time my almost-40 year old legs will have given way. This has all the makings of picking a Grand National winner, looks good on paper, but lucky dip on the night. I'll be interested to see what the club is like, having known it as the Town & Country and then Creation. I hear its more like the T&C now, which was how I preferred it. Its alsowhere I met the wife. :thumbsup:

    Channel 4 Dance Music programmes!

    I enjoyed the documentary although the "Top 40" format was a bit flawed. I would rather it have been a proper documentary and flowed chronologically through from Sir Jimmy to the present day. I suspect it was designed the way it was to get maximum effect of their no.1. However, well worth watching and I learnt a fair bit about the sounds created (that guy in Detroit with his box of tricks, was superb) and more about the history. Trance barely featured, neither Jules for that matter. I thought he would have some good input on the legal side of the M25 raves and what about Norman Jay?
  17. Hi all. Good to see all the old faces still knocking about on here. I'm going to be in Leeds for the weekend of 4th-6th May and I'm looking for a decent place to go. I moved away in 2005 and this is my first visit back so I've no idea whats still open. Ideally a club that plays trance (possibly unrealistic, I know) but something close to it would do. I have no intention of taking my slacks and work shoes, so somewhere that is relaxed and casual, that isn't strict on dress code would be spot on. If anyone is around and wants to join in the fun, it would be great to meet again.
  18. Good question. I've not removed it, so I guess it happened when the board got a spruce up? I think Tim saved it, so hopefully it may reappear.
  19. Thanks for all the responses and wishes. There's still a few weeks til I head south so hopefully an event will surface. I have done Basics a few times, right from my old stoodent days when it was at The Music Factory and latterly when it moved to Rehab. As you say, Tom, its not trance but its better than commercial nonsense. Trains are booked for the weekend already Chrissie. Less than £40 return :thumbsup:
  20. Thanks for the cake Quadders. Tasted lovely :thumbsup: Hi Tom, yeah I'm good thanks mate. Hope you're doing well too. Pleased to see your show is still going strong. Thanks for the info regarding Digital Society, never heard of it before :redface: Shame I'm not down there for 3rd June, but I'll keep an eye on the webpage.
  21. A relative of mine is getting married next year and wants to include a 60min slot of their own music while the band takes a break. They have all the tracks as MP3 (purchased from iTunes) but they need editing to remove intros and outros, and then mxing together. This doesn't need to be beat-matched, just more the sort you would expect to hear at your local townie club. Can anyone recommend any software that will allow me to do this - that's preferably free! I've been look around and found http://audacity.sourceforge.net/about/features Will this do what I'm after - it seems to look the business? Any advice greatly appreciated :thumbsup:
