last time roni size played out he announced a special half hour in the middle of his set for all the original junglists. he rinsed through tunes like valley of the shadows, warning etc, and in such a wicked way! what is wrong with still playing some older tunes which are still bloody good? as long as the whole set is mixed down good with good tunes, the age of a dnb tune doesn't really matter in my eyes.
Checking the set now - not really feeling the selection or the mixing. His phrasing is strange sometimes, and the tunes he plays don't often go together too well IMO. At least he's still cuttin' it up!
Why you goin on about old tunes? Cos I said about T-10 and Warning?
I dont think theres anything wrong with playing old tunes, as anyone whose heard me will know, but those tunes aint even old - theyve been CAINED! Let em rest for a bit I say. How many times have you heard them in the last 6 months? And a person in Hypes position surely has access to new and exclusive dubs as well as all the old rare stuff, why does he stick to playing tunes that everyone and his mum is playing?
Hype is a favourite dj for many because he is an entertainer above all else. He plays the tunes that people recognize and he scratches it up and you know that always makes the crowd go wild. The last time i saw Hype was about a year ago when he played on the same night as me and he was fuckin wicked. Thats all i know boyz...
