Vinyl continues to die

19 Dec

Allthough the use and popularity of vinyl is holding, the underlying infrastructure for pressing and distributing it is dying. Vinyl pressing quality varies greatly these days and the know how of running vinyl production machines is diminishing, not to mention good mastering services for vinyl aren’t always easy to find. Bottom line, more vinyl distributors are filing for bankruptcy. This is a deadly blow to vinyl, especially dance music vinyl.

This is a great post by Wired, http://blog.wired.com/music/2007/11/vinyl-dance-mus.html

Liquidation Sale

I still buy vinyl and have released some of my own vinyl, but I’m slowly moving away from it. I love the tactility of dj’n with it, but since I’m spinning more of my own productions, I’m moving twords digital timecoded vinyl, like Ms. Pinky, Serato, FinalScratch, etc. I still don’t like mixing with CDs…maybee I just haven’t spent the time learning, but they annoy me. Not to mention, there are so many options that clubs and lounges don’t have a standard. It’s only at the big clubs you can count on serious Technics and Pioneer CDJs. Many of my dj friends bring their own CDJs because of this.

For the lighter side of the vinyl debate, check this other wired post. As much as has been written about vinyl in the past few years noone knows what will happen to it. Certain aspects of it are actually flurishing. I think however that as a DJ tool it will be around for many more years, even though it’s on its way out in popularity

 
 

New Electrocab video

18 Dec

Electrocab added a new video. It’s from a live performance at the Spheris Gallery. I wrote the song, it’s me in the back on the decks. The lyrics are from a poem, I draw a line by my friend Seldon Yuan

Old School Deuche

03 Dec

This is a wierd video I ran across on youtube…Talk about some old school Fraternity Hijinx. Southern charm mixed with some deuche = volital mix. I think the obnoxious comments on the youtube page are just as entertaining as the video!

Hot Chicks with Duchebags

This is one of the funnier blogs I’ve come across in a while. It pretty much is exactly what the title describes, it features hot girls with cheesball dudes. If you want to know what it is like to live in New Jersey, check out this site. I can’t give Jersey too much shit though, because the Deuche epidemic is all over, it knows no boundaries.
