  1. Don't forget that DJ FRESH will be performing a revamped 'SOUNDWEAPON' gig at One Nation on Saturday.
    I'll be driving down there with him to help set up and we'll be hanging out there for the night.
    For those of you who havn't seen it i recommend to get down ther if you can.....It's fucking awesome!

    is it a live event what i mean is it on decks or other instruments
     
  4. You have to run a computer, a mixer and a touch screen controller at the same time for starters which believe me is a mission.
    Basically, you have to assign different tunes to different cells on the touch controller and perform live. You can do shit like quadruple + drop tunes, drop a new tune every bar if you want while layering effects and samples from other tunes at the same time.....it really is an amazing experience. Much more technical than DJing.....but thats Dan Fresh for you! He loves technology.

  10. Before you cast judgement - experience it first!
    It's nothing like any other live PA you may have seen. Its not just an artist standing there infront of a laptop pretending to play a tune live - which you may have seen before.
    It goes off everytime he's played.
    I guarantee anybody who see's it will think its the bollocks!
     
  11. Dan's been touring around the world promoting soundweapon to date but is starting to book a load of dates in the UK. He only got back from Australia a month or so ago so he is juggling trying to make new tunes in the studio as well as revamping SOUNDWEAPON and getting bookings locked down in the UK.
