I have to say I really like the smileys on this board. I used to be on some pretty whacky forums but this one has the best smileys Ive seen ever. Um... I got recommended to post here by DNB4DCROWD Im Basswhore. Pretty surprised I got that username its taken everytime. Ima post my all vinyl mix from 2005. I heard it today for the first time in a few years and its way sloppier than I remember and then I remembered those nightmare turntables You know when you have to cradle the bpm like a wee-infant to cleanly beatmatch which you cant focus on blending or anything and trainwreck? So theres some sweeping going on. Besides that my friend doing the audio recording didnt set it right giving me hella treble. But its pretty fun to listen to those days remembering how crazy being a kid was. Back then I couldnt afford all the vinyls I wanted. I also did a lotta lotta lotta pychadelys bck then and I got very ill. I went to rehab and some hosptial holds. I quit partying, and djing, and even listening to most music alltogether. As the years went by I would listen to my old Jungle tapes. I had a whole stock pile of em. Tons of disks and old cassettes. Then Youtube started popping up with all the good tunes I used to love hearing in my fav djs sets. I learned about the producers I always loved, and found rare stuff I never found before on Youtube. I sold my tables in 2006. Those cheap ass plastic bulky Numark TT220's or w/e. When I sold them I thought I would never dj again. One day I came across a vinyl I liked and the price was like $2. I think it was a Dillinja LP and I didnt understand. When I used to buy vinyls a Dillinja LP cost $100. So I started reading up on discogs alot and found out all those LPs I used to want so much back in the day were like $1 or $2 now! I started making a list of so many LPs, EPs, singles, etc. I made a list of literally 1,000's of albums. There were so many I couldnt think of a way I could afford this much vinyls. I decided maybe one day down the long road and forgot about the list. I got somewhat obsessed and intrigued with vinyl collecting also at that time. I looked up tons of resources online of anything I could find about vinyl collecting. And then I came across Carl Cox's Documentary and "Summer of Rave". I never knew Techno music came from Detroit. I was listening to alot of dnb music like posting on social media. Its about this time that the guy I had been dating for 2 years admitted to me he was playing me pretty much the last 2 years, of our whole 2 years, and the whole entire fucking time pretended that he was this completely lyoal and just another person who I didnt even know. It literally ripped my heart from right out of my throat. At the time I was playing around alot with creating chopped and screwed music on Fruity Loop type of programs. Playing around with Virtual Dj and stuff like that I eventually came across a video of someone mixing their gabber set with a DJ controller. The idea hit me like a crowbar to the face I knew exactly what to do. I got the list of vinyls I made a few months ago. I started downloading mp3 after mp3 (just learned the difference in WAVs and AIFFs yesterday.) Currently I have 7 days straight worth of music without hearing the same song twice. By October or November I will afford a decent priced controller. I just threw myself back into mixing because it hurt so much what he did to me. Iits still really really recent what happen and Im still working my way through it which is part of the reason I joined a few music forums. I have a dream set I never believed Id have the opportunity to play, lined up, and ready to mix. Here is the old mix I mentioned earlier just please done judge me soley on the tempo because like I said the tables wouldnt hold a steady bpm and the poor quality of the recording we had but my style is a little smashing although I think those tunes are way played out and boring almost a decade ago later. I was really into djing back then with my crew and loved Nuero/teche/jump. Im a female dj in Los Angeles and Id love to play somewhere even for free like I used to do and always wanted to dj for underground desert&forest parties. Side A Side B Im not dj skillez but I dont wana put my real name cuz I dont wana get jacked. Back then the tracks were still fresh but seem pretty blan by todays standards. Also Im gona upload something I made this morning in the dj mix section right now. If anyone even checks it out.
