First mix on the new rig is uploading as I write this post. My 1200mk3Ds arrived, and I’m now using Shure Whitelabel Carts / styli. The clarity in the sound is definitely noticeable over my entry level Numark GT needles / carts. The 1200s have come from a library in Japan, and even have that musty book smell about them. Really enjoying spinning on them, might even up my mix output. Next purchase is a new mixer…I eventually want to mix records and digital files via DVS. I’ll write a more detailed description of the mix on the Podcast entry, but think bouncy hard dance…I was dancing around my dining room mixing this, so hope someone else gets a kick from it.
Not much new on the mix front, I have 1 broken / malfunctioning Numark turntable, and I’m awaiting 2x refurbished Technics 1200s to arrive from Japan. There’s a new GAS LOUDER mix in the works that may show up on Mixcloud soonish, depending on whether I can get up there to sign off on it. I was supposed to record a mix in the Ipswich Beat Laboratory recently but I struggled to get motivated, so looking forward to new decks [and new needles / carts] to play with…probably time for a big vinyl sort anyway. I’ve also turned off the setting discouraged search engines from indexing my site…see how I feel about that in due course. May potentially pick up some techno in Melbourne towards the end of the month if time allows…other than that I’m processing some DJ SYNTAX vinyl mixes, but not doing anything of my own.
