Today's current dance music

It's pretty fucking dreadful isn't it? Every tune in the same genre has the same drum kit, synths and builds.

Re: UK-D Font - Music production software

it almost pains me to say it but.... fruity loops? it's probably the DAW (digital audio workstation) most like a windows version of garageband - simple for-the-masses interface, easy to get rolling...

Re: UK-D Font - Music production software

I have nuendo 6 in my studio but since launching the radio station hardly ever touch it now as the studio is being used for the station most of the time

Re: boxes for moving/storing vinyl

Wine boxes are perfect. They're the perfect fit, and pack just enough for a manageable weight.

boxes for moving/storing vinyl

I've gone back to uni and will be moving house most likely every year for the next 5 years, so the records have to get stored in manageable-sized chunks.

Actually the synth is a 101, a component of the 100 system (as played by the Aphex twin, so I'm told)

Roland synthesizer

Re: Today's current dance music

Hi there, Ref. this: I'm not exactly 'current' anymore but listening to R1's coverage from Ibiza a few weeks ago seemed to be a shitstorm of this EDM stuff - and I agree, it's ghastly.

Re: Today's current dance music

I've always tried not to be one of those people who only listens to old music but this year it's been a real challenge to find anything current that I like.

Re: Today's current dance music

I think there's some amazing music out there, yes it's influenced by the past but that's cool with me especially as a lot of it sounds very early 90's, check out Gilles Peterson on Saturday...
