Back In Time



This brings back some memories.
A video clip of me DJing at Aberystwyth University, Wales in 1998 when I used to DJ with vinyl (and smoke!)

how did you give up smoking as a matter of interest, any tips?

@ terence sharpe
Willpower mainly. I found some good tips online for cutting down over 7 days before stopping entirely.

When I look back now it surprises me how easy it was to stop smoking. Before I did, it seemed like an impossible task.
It's really only as difficult as you make it for yourself.

You looked a bit younger as well ;-)

Never play with vinyl anymore, not even at home? Gave it up all the way? Would be a shame, I always admired your (vinyl) djing skills as well....

Great video, saw it a good while back.

Do you ever go back and psin some records for enjoyment? For personal use i mean?

You probably have been asked that a million times.

I last Djed with vinyl in December 2001. I don't miss it at all.
I have decks at home, but not 2 in the same room :-\

Matt said...

2001? I did not think you gave them up until 2005. So has it been ableton from the minute it came out?

Do you use ableton to make tracks now or is it a combination of hardware and software?

2001 > Finalscratch

Matt said...

Ah right. That makes sens alright.

Nice one, it remembers me for the old times. (nostalgic)

But I won't change the present by no means for them. I like the direction you're heading in, there is this so much desired progression that everyone is talkin' about. After all - it's all about techno, and techno is futurism, not a stagnation, right?

Full respect.

Nice little vid, takes me back! What's the tune that starts coming in about 30 seconds, before Alarms?

nice to see the mixer used to making those brakes, the vinyl school...

by the way, you are not even smoking the cigarette! something in between ashing and mixing.
