I'm going to try to catch the Sept. 1 date in San Fran. Some of my faves are BT, Crystal Method, Paul Oakenfold, Mix Master Mike, and DJ Rap (SHE'S SOOO FREAKIN HOT!!). My friend's also in love with Dieselboy and Deep Dish, so I'm looking forward to those guys as well. Anyone else into this type of stuff? I'm more into the rap/hiphop stuff nowadays, but my roots are pretty deeply embedded in the rave/electronic scene. In fact I plan to get back into dj'ing once I move out to Cali next month.

Andy C, Roni Size, Ltj Bukem, Dj Rap, Dj Hype and Grooverider are all Drum&Bass DJīs. Thatīs the kind of music Iīm into for 7 years now. Itīs pretty big in England and German club Scene. Andy C, Roni Size and Grooverider are actually real good. Hype used to be good but declined the last few years. And Dj Rap, well... she looks good.
We have partys with better lineups in Germany, but thatīs a decent lineup anyways. Have fun DJ i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

DJ,
If you are interested in Drum&Bass or techstep you should check out this site. (http://www.breakbeat.co.uk/). They have alot of interesting stuff there.

Yea I figured you'd have something to say about this Fidel i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif I know the electronic scene here in the States doesn't even compare to England or Germany's. It's more of a novelty here than anything imo. I remember a few years ago when every mag declared the electro/techno invasion was taking over. Translation: MTV is now airing vids by the Chemical Bros. and the Prodigy

I'll be sure to check it out Fidel. I visit djmixed.com (http://www.djmixed.com) from time to time. Hiphop's great, but I'd really like to get back to spinning dance/techno/trance beats.

BTW, do you like The Prodigy? I've been a fan of their's for years, and was pretty excited to hear they've decided to release a new album. Liam's last release, The Dirtchamber Sessions, was ok but a little too vintage-sounding for my tastes. I used to run a fan site (PRODGE.COM (http://www.prodge.com)) but gave up on it because of lack of time.

I don't like Prodigy...they're way to freaky for me.

Yea I used to freak out my roommate in college (during my freshman year) by playing my Prodge vids and stuff all the time. Maybe that's why we didn't get along very well at first i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif But once we moved into our new suite and started playing NBA Live 98, life was good!

Yes...basketball is much better than freaky music.

Sorry it took me so long DJ.
Of course I like TheProdigy. They kind of stardted the whole breakbeat thing in the UK with their hit "everybody is in the place". I also like their new, ill stuff. Thatīs pretty much the look and feel you have when you attend a drum&bass or jungle party in Germany. Itīs a bit like japanese manga-anime. The only thing I didnīt like was that they became kind of popstars in the late 90īs, especially Keith Flint.

I agree. It was somewhat bittersweet, seeing my fave band finally getting some international exposure. But Flint's new look was a bit overkill. Oh well..it's all about Liam i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

BTW, what new stuff are you talking about? I haven't been keeping up much. I know they made an announcement regarding their next album, but have they released anything since the Dirtchamber Sessions?

Fidel

I actually meaned the Dirtchamber stuff. Well I guess thatīs pretty old now, but still their newest and they didnīt have any style changes since then (their last change was pretty dramatic, but I liked it anyways).
