On request of people I created an Extended version of the mashup Get your freak on 75 Brazil Street.
Today I discovered Dance Valley Back Into Time. A very nice looking web application that takes you on a journey through all the Dance Valley editions.
Mostly because of my Drive-in past I’ve been working for a long time with BPM Studio and the accompanying RCP-2001-B controller. I mostly used it for quick try-outs of ideas for mixes and mashups. Unfortunately the software didn’t receive much updates lately and started to lag behind in functionality. So it was time for a successor of BPM Studio.
One of the better Dutch female artists when it comes to singing talent is Trijntje Oosterhuis from Total Touch. Her I’ll say goodbye song made a great intro for the TMF Yearmix of 1998. The more up tempo song Touch me there is still played on the dance floor and the acapella is used in many mix tapes, live sets or mashups.
Yesterday Oversoft and I had a try-out of something new. We created a setup with two laptops running Ableton Live 7, the Allen& Heath Xone 4D and a Pioneer DJM-600. The two laptops with Ableton Live 7 we’re linked together using the MIDI signal from the Xone 4D. It was the task of the Xone 4D to keep everything in Sync. The DJM-600 and Xone 4D were also linked like in a normal battle setup.
