The last tym I saw the Rider was @ Ruffstuff & Fun's bday bash back in June, and apart from the noticeable clanging of mixes the tune selection was pretty good. The only thing I remember really fuckin me off was every other tune being drowned out with annoying gun-shots & alarm sounds. After about 40mins into the set pplz were literally looking around & looking at each other with 'wtf' expressions!

Now every Grooverider set I listen to recently, the last of which is from RC 19, all u can hear drowning out perfectly good tunes are these dodgy sound-effects. Once OK fair enough, twice maybe.......but after a while you think he would of got bored of it????!!!!!!!!

Jus wonderin if pplz had seen or heard a Grooverider set & thought the same? Would of actually been a good set if he tightened up his mixes n stopped ths bullshit!

Peace.

no it really is just grooveriders radio jingles... i played after him back in june and he was constantly playing them.. "groove grooove groooverider groove groove grooverider" and by the end it was getting a bit much! constant gunshots at the perfect time to ruin a tune.. they are acceptable on radio but not in a club

he needs to stop doing it , did it all during his set at warning saturday night , proper annoying imo , should put more effort in to his mixing as that was pretty shocking , sound effects sound ok on the radio but not in a club

lol youknow that after 20+ years he still can not mixs what is
that about he is just living off other peoples tunes sad and when he dose make a tune he has had someone else make it
for him lol
Totally agree
GrooveRider is bad at mixing
but
Fabio is a hundred times worse i am from the states seeing fabio play out at innovation, was disturbing every mix was so off beat like whats the point of being a dj an being book over and over i know he is fabio but geeze! if u cant mix seriously. Seriously cant mix then practice when u freeze the dancefloor after every track. I had to leave
