Finding that rare groove - digital digging

Recommended Posts

ah the future age of crate digging.

You know when you just hear one snipit of a track

and that sound just follows you around for days?

 

And you try to find the original, following clues,

checking directories, asking your nerdy record collecting friends...

and then it clicks!

 

so hop on whatever P2P you use... and grab Boogie Down Bronx by Man parish

 

and you will know just how excited I was to find this beat.

ok... so the rest of the track might get a little cheesy in that electro-vibe way,

 

but the intro will find it's way onto my next mix without a doubt.

we've actually been having this huge debate on a forum i frequent

 

it seems as though tons of new jack dj's think that there is something wrong with just downloading music, instead of finding it in the crates

 

what they dont realise is that after many many many years of searching for one tune, if you can find it on a p2p or ftp site ... my vote goes for grabbing that shit

not to say you burn it, and slip in in a cdj and play it ... thats just cheating

playing unreleased or forthcoming music on a cdj is one thing ... playing released tunes is just lame

 

yeah i know what it's like though

i have close to the entire Metalheadz back catalog on mp3 which has taken me about 2 years to get

and i also have it on vinyl ... which has taken me close to 8years to get

 

finding tunes you love that you can listen to at any given moment is a fucking superb thing to me

imho

oh I agree.

 

If dj'ing is your job and your passion, then find those originals.

If you're just using p2p to find the latest hits, then you might as well just

keep buying k-tel compilations. But I guess the whole point of this topic

is that you can find things with p2p and then get the originals.

 

It would have taken me so much digging to find that intro to Boogie Down Bronx.

 

 

I remeber when I got the first 'platinum breaks' on vinyl

and I showed it to some of the 'junglists' at my school.

They were all like 'Naw man, heavy metal is wack'.

 

oh I gave one hell of a :rolleyes:

I bought this Bjork CD once thinking it was a regular domestic single/remix. When I went home and opened it, it turns out to be a double CD remix import with a mini poster. I was extremely happy and I paid the regular CD single price for it. Life can be so great. Speaking of which, Bjork will be in SF 8/8 and LA 8/11, I know you guys were just dying with anxiety waiting for this update.

HAhahAhahAHahAHahAHahHAha

thats great

 

yeah ... i have double copies of every headz tune i own ... one to play, and one to collect

i still find it ammusing when i tell the "junglist" folks that i play breaks n dub ... they think i mean breakbeats and that reggae sounding music

 

fucking tweakers

there's a time and place for rewind sets,

but most dj's should save that style for Kenny Ken and Blackmarket.

 

I caught the 'rider on his last tour this way,

and there was zero comgo natty played. Suprising? not at all.

yeah, i agree ... old skool should be reserved for people that 'are' actually old skool

 

i used to play lots of dubby stuff ... digital, spirir ... timeless/function type shit

 

now i can't get my ear or my selections of techno sounding shit ... i guess the fact that people send me there tunes helps aid why i'm playing so much of it too

:D

 

we've got a lot of good things happening down here at the moment

bukem this last weekend

teebee and john b[fuck him] in a week or so

then i'm bringing down the virus lads in june

and impulse soon too

sniper w/ MC GQ ... dood that's a classic, how could i 'not' know

yeah man, i'm familiar with a lot of the older vinyl syndicate crew ... still chat with DJ Slip every so often ... and i dunno if you know a kid named Titan or not, but he's a pretty good friend of mine ... talk to Stranjah every now and again aswell

 

i'm actually heading up there to play at some club soon ... maybe i can kill two birds with one stone and paint as well as play

i just sold my two turntables, definate waste of money and time. unless your dedicated and serious, with turntables, they are not the way to go.

 

Personally i fell into the marketing blitz that turntables and vinyl are "cool" for somereason. digital is the way to go..and anyone that says opposite is ignorant (or has self-biased opinions.)

good... I was worried that I was going to have to say I came from the same spot as 'Freaky Flow'.

Someone just opened a new record shop down from my pad called 'blackmarket records'.

I thought 'Do they even know?' untill I walked by and heard what they were playing.... interesting!?

 

hit up my email.

it makes sence man.

 

we are the capital of north american dnb.

I'm sure some people whould debate that

but the fact that all those guys are residents

here and fearless even hass a place seems to

make that claim a little more valid.

 

hell... I like 3 minutes from blackmarket records!
