    You have to appreciate the fact that these are live mixes though, and therefore the MC is playing a crowd.

    I'm more a fan of a backseat MC, the liquid scene has many, but get where you are coming from.

    That is why Fabio's old swerve nights at the End were so good... completely mc free!

    Some D&BA podcasts are hard to listen to at times because of certain MCs...The one that sticks out that I didn't mind as much was the DJ Steppa w/Tonn Piper.

    Exactly mate i think that the music sounds better on its own without mc, especially when there is lyrics in the tunes and the mc is singing/rappin whatever you call it over the top, it js aint right

    Yea but obviously this is a forum that gets new members all the time, and a lot maybe haven't discussed it.

    I guess just don't enter the thread if it's stale to you...

    I know what you mean... I actually like a good mc that vibes with the music, and doesn't try and be the music. They can actually make a night in some instances... You here Stamina or SP vibeing and just think, "yes yes mate, yes yes."

    I've found this too and it is definitely annoying when the MC dominates. I feel sorry for the people at the event! On the other hand, surely it wouldn't be too hard to have a record of the actual mixing, straight from the mixer's output with no mc or audience? Although it won't have the live feel and may show more mistakes...

    I have been thinking this for soooo long now. Though I don't get live sets anymore.

    However I feel that most of the people who buy cd packs want to get the feel for the event, especially if they have been, plus I also think mostly us who dj are the ones who don't want mcing... smaller minority.

    I know it's not really MCin' and more like singin', but I love the Total Science "Soul Patrol(Ft.Mc Conrad)(Lenzman Remix)" track...Skibadee and Fun are my favs, they have some good lyrics...I didn't really like the Majistrate podcast with Funsta in it for some reason, it doesn't stick out as bein' one i really liked, even with Funsta in it...
    I think i know more anti-MC people than pro-MC...

    some sets are ruined by mcs but its not the mcs fault alot of the time its just the quality of the set if u were there live im sure it would sound much better.
    i tend to mainly download studio mixes as they dont usually have mcs an if they do the levels are ok so theres no problem!
