  1. You might like to know that the track “Miracle” is coming out on Serial Records. In the meantime, aren’t you glad that Web Sheriff aren’t here this week to gatecrash your party? 😉

  2. Thanks mate.

    I’m seriously missing Web Sheriff. He/she had become like an old friend! Haha!

  3. For the first time I have to say both 2 and 3 in this chart are aweful. Teardrops is old and done to death.
    How on earth Axwell can even be mentioned as part of that track is beyond me.

  4. I’m sure you’ve been on record company mailing lists mate.

  5. Well I believe in honest feedback in priovate and public. But I hear what you are saying.

  6. I agree mate but it’s sadly a fine balance between receiving promos and promoting tunes that you’re not 100% happy with. Not sure I’m going to stay on the lists much longer though as they’re not so good any more.

  7. I’ve always wondered – how do you actually get your music? Okay, I know that as a DJ, you’re going to get quite a few tracks sent to you for free, and hearing that you’re signed up to promo lists doesn’t surprise me. What websites or shops do you use when you buy tracks?

    Meantime, I’ve listened to your latest podcast and really enjoying The Ting Tings new track. Gutted that I’ve got to wait until mid-July to get my hands on this one, but with mixes from Chris Lake, Haji & Emanuel, Tocadisco and Tom Neville – those are just the ones I know of – I’m looking forward to it. And they say that blogs just encourage people to download music for free? Rubbish!

  8. I’ve been DJ’ing for about 20 years now and over the past 15 (or so) I’ve been on various mailing lists. So I get sent promo copies of tracks before they’re out. It used to be great and we’d get decent tracks months before they came out. Often it’s only a week or so before they’re released and also we get sent some rubbish too!

    I also get sent a lot of tracks from DJs and record labels too as I support them on my blog, mixes and podcasts. Plus I buy tracks – mainly from Beatport, Xpressbeats and Traxsource.

    I do think that MP3 blogs encourage people to download tracks, which is a shame as the artist should be supported. I’d like to think that I point people at good music and then they help to support the tracks. The music industry is changing a lot and we’ve got to help the new artists shine through the corporate rubbish! 🙂

  9. Dude most of your stuff must be promos.
    I searched Beatport, Xpressbeat, Juno and Tracksource for tracks from your top 20 and gave up after I couldn’t find any of the first 10 I tried, I gave up.

    I don’t mind paying for tracks, hell I used to pay up to $12USD for imports back in the day.

    I am just getting back into spinning again after a 10 absence and there seems to be an awful lot a crap out there as far a music. I used to be able to go to the record store (or even when I ran the record pool) and find a dozen bangin’ tacks in no time. Now if I find one per hour of searching online I’m lucky.

    BTW, love the podscasts and the tracks you play.


  10. Yeah, I still get lots of promos so that’s why the chart can seem upfront. There’s normally a lead time of about 3 weeks on the tracks so check back at Beatport etc. after that time and you’ll probably find them.

    I remember paying £8-£10 (approx $16-20) for quality US imports back in the day too. If only the internet was around then and we could have found them a lot cheaper! 😉

  11. I always found the press of UK imports to be better quality. Although I will admit I did prefer the US music though.
    Especially back in the late 80s.
    I have stuff on Trax Records that was repressed on old K-Tel records. Some damn fine quality there lol.

    I am trying to remix Phuture’s track Your only friend aka Coccaine and can;t find a decent copy anywhere. My 12″ sounds horrible.

  12. I can’t really remember much difference but it was 20 years ago! Haha!
    I always remember getting crappy quality light pressings though and they were a nightmare to mix with!

    Can’t help you with that track Dan as I don’t have a copy of it myself. Could you not clean up your 12″ in a wave editor?

  13. HAHa, ya tracks that didn’t keep time because of the pressing or where never in time in the first place, . I find the new stuff very easy to mix compared to back in the old days.

    Ya I tried a wave editor and it did ok but I was hoping to get it to sound cleaner.

  14. Yeah, some of the old pressings were warped and the tracks sped up and slowed down. Fun times! Haha!

    You might have to work out what synths they used (probably a 303!) and then replay it yourself.
