    Everyone was looking forward to his on Wednesday (well I know I was) and he turns up late. Even worse he spends 15 minutes setting up his gear and to top it all off he forgot his timecode vinyls for Traktor.

    When he actually got going he was useless, clanged constantly and decided he needed a rewind every tune because he couldn't get a mix locked.

    Thoughts and opinions?

    I thought it was pretty funny watching the ads, watching the chatroom go fucking insane and it would randomly flick back to him still setting up his traktor. And wearing aviators indoors, wtf is that about?!

    Thats what happens when they have a song in the chart, they get all comercial and start forgettin the important things.

    caught a bit of it last night.

    Swear that heavywieght VIP/fiddle/whatever was like 10 minutes long. Then he cues up next track 4 bars off.

    I ain't one to hate, but i mean...come on.

    Exactly! I agree everyone fucks up, but that was beyond a joke. I don't think the chatroom appreciated the fact that the camera didn't go behind the decks as in the other sets of the night, plenty of comments about a premixed set and sync buttons being thrown around ...

    Missed this.. but Fresh has never been known for his DJ skills. He's a God of production, but even he'll admit he's not exactly a wizard on the decks. Didn't see it though so can't comment. If what you guys are saying is true doesn't sound like this one will be replayed lol.

    i didnt hear him clang atall. He had everything pre pitched on his laptop and did not touch the pitch on the CDJ what so ever. I dont know who is banging on about clangs because this wasnt the case, it was simply a gay selection and another DJ prancing around pretending he was doing something!

    Prob had a nightmare .shit sometimes just gets wornger by the , but being an organised sort a person he had a backup? Prepitched or a mix or something in case his laptop fucks up or something. End of day most of you would still hit a venue to see him ....and he'd most likely smash it up
