lack of funds means i will not be going to the nme tour date in preston tonight. this is disappointing, as i’d really been looking forward to seeing heartbreak. their resident advisor mix from last autumn was something special, with its dirty italian grooves and horror film soundtrack music. they even kick things off with the opening lines of dario argento’s tenebrae, how awesome! it’s a bit funky, it’s a bit cheesy, it’s all completely fun, so you should definitely have a listen.

as always, ra has some interesting interviews for your reading pleasure, with laurent garnier, dj hell, and sis, the man behind the monstrous trompeta.

For me personally, I don’t care whether one uses vinyl or a laptop, as long as he puts some effort in it and not just stands there synchronizing two tracks in Traktor with a mouse. Even my grandmother could do that.
