Another bloody typhoon coming up this weekend. Here's a shot from the studio terrace a few days ago. The sky was awesome enough to inspire me to a write a new club track. One of the DJs will hopefully give it a test drive tonight at Yumla.

DJ Mag album review

Thanks to my man Yiannisfor picking this out. Found a good (possibly good, I think?) album review for Rendition in Europe's leading club rag DJ Magazine:

Scouring recesses Dan F's latest album feels

like a long lost Meat Beat

Manifesto opus,

'Follow The Sines' is

rocktronica in excelsis,

while the playfully bonkers

Tenori-off and a new Xone:1D

  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNrV8LjRcRU

Been test driving my new DJ set-up at the studio this week ... ditched the ridiculous vinyl control hardware and turntables completely ... the more I got into Traktor the less I needed the Technics. Unless you are a scratch DJ, the vinyl control is utterly redundant.

Swapped out NI Audio8 soundcard for the more reliable* FireWire Motu Ultralite (the backbone of my old Abeton Live DJ sets) plus adde...Read more

The Shape Of Things That Hum

Quick recap of some classic musical electronics ...  train-spotterish but quaintly amusing! Each vid is about 10 minutes long, and I think from Channel 4 (UK).

Metallica - R.I.P. Magnetic

I'm not the biggest fan of Metallica, but I am a fan of well recorded, well mixed and well mastered music. Metallica and producer Rick Rubin - for reasons unknown - certainly feel otherwise! The new album sounds like, well, sounds like something I would've mixed eight or ni...Read more

The 17

Continuing my miserable rant about the end of recorded music a few months back,  I recently stumbled across this in the press:

http://www.the17.org

Cultural manipulator / spearhead / interpreter Bill Drummond [wiki link] is behind The 17 ... I could splurt out a few words here  on the project but really, it's all laid out very clearly on the site.

post-typhoon gardening

The balcony got wrecked during the last few typhoons. The terracotta planters we had suffered the most ... 2" thick and completely split by wind knocking the trees around.

Weather has been semi-stable so decided to bring the gardeners over and swap out the damaged pots, repair a few of the more sorry looking palm trees and chuck some flowers into the bigger pots to try and help retain water (the sun is drying out the soil really quickly). 

Work in progress:

God I love getting parcels in the mail. Especially when you can light 'em up.

my peoples

Been taking these shots for over a year now ... burned out black & white portrait-scape taken (mostly) at the bar. Have about 350 up on Flickr now ... quite like the way they look en masse and I really like catching people's expressions when they are not aware of the camera. People always look more interesting when they are being themselves.

Major downside to all this ... trying to get high contrast photos in low light always requires a flash ... and having a blinding white strobe go in your face at 3AM (especially when ... uh .....Read more
