    ever find that you hear a tune in the shop - get it home and then it's actually fully pants. Bought Supply & Demand : Peace of mind (Lemon D remix) the other day as heard Fabio play it on one in the Jungle... the sound quality's really poor and the tune itself is really dull, another one Aphrodite : Return to jedda / (Jaydan remix)...pants

    q project - focus / up front

    played it about twice. but i heard someone drop it last week, and it sounded fucking phat, so i might pull it out

    i wouldn't say it's buying a tune you don't like. i used to listen to a lot of clips of tunes on my laptop - didn't rate them. then heard them through a proper system and loved them. which is why i run everything through my system at home now before i buy it, to get a better idea of what it sounds like.

    hence, this is why in the past i've ended up with a few duff tunes as a result. if you get me.

    I listened to them first blatantly - headphones in the shop aren't all that good, it's not buying 'what i don't like' it's listening too it hearing something of distinction or a catchy hook and then playin' it on my system and it turns out it ain't all that - partly cause i don't like buying all the anthems, and look for something a bit different..
