catalyst: big boy toys

on Thu, 08/04/2016 - 15:51

Recorded live at Dogglounge on 31 July 2016.

For this set I was using full-on pro gear: Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus and DJM-900nexus. Stuff the big boys play at every club. Sadly, this is about $5k of gear, and I don't own it, so I don't play on it as frequently as I need to to keep my skills sharp. Since I've got some dates coming up where I need to be on that gear, so I borrowed some to freshen up.

I'm not sure why I named this podcast this way. I did the mastering and artwork (which made me come up with a name), then forgot to upload the podcast. In the meantime, I've forgotten. I had just come back from Ibiza; though that doesn't make me remember anything (probably was instrumental in why I forgot...).

Recently my wife and I completed a stay at Villa Can Pep Toni in Ibiza, Spain. Since I'm not sure any comments I provide on other sites will be preserved, I'm putting the comments here (and putting links to here from other locations).

Summary: Lots of good, a few oddly silly bad, but a good value and I'd repeat-visit (unless something better shows up).

Layout: A very roomy tri-level, with LR/kitchen/DR on middle floor, 3 BR downstairs (various bed configurations, and 1 bathroom containing 2 sinks, toilet & shower), and 1 BR upstairs (with 1 bathroom containing bathtub (with shower curtain), 1

I had A Big Mess Of Wires (thus, BMOW title) in my DJ setup, because I'd torn it down & put it together right before the set. Sadly, it meant I had the sound card setting on "Phono" (vs. Line) for the first 4 tunes, and there was all low-end, no high-end. Fortunately I figured the problem out, but remained a bit flustered for the rest of the set. A few other things went wrong. But, here ya go.

Tracklist:

  • Live6, Unknown
  • Soul glow, feat. Damon Trueitt, Mogul
  • Stronger (Steve Void Edit), Nik Ernst
  • If I Were Your Woman, feat.

This was a "no prep" set. I had about 15 minutes to grab my laptop, find an opening track, and go!
