Record Collection Must Go!

I have job lots of old school hip-hop, techno and electro vinyl that need to go before I move. Below are the links to the ads. If you mention this blog in your reply I'll give you a healthy discount. Buyer collects from west London!
I will not show you into my inner sanctum, nor am I selling any mega-rare white labels. Keep an eye here, I will update the status of the lots, and note when new ones go up.

[update] gone!

New Performance System



(thanks to the Poliz√łn Crew for the vid.)

So this is how it was in Madrid, with my own visuals patch running on a second laptop. The pretty patterns are reflecting the status of buttons on the Monome, the text scrolling at the top is showing track titles, below that is the beat count (ie the number of beats so far) and the text at the bottom is showing things like the BPM, Process.elapsedTime (if you are an SC person you will know what that means) and various rave instructions ("time to make the floor burn" etc.)

Shame it stopped working after about half an hour! It just goes to show, you should always test a system as it will be used. I shan't bore you with the details, but next time it will stay the course, if there is ever a next time... (P.S. I'm perpetually available for discotheque duty.)

Berlin

Here is the news: I'm moving to Berlin, initially for 6 months. I'll be landing on the 1st June, so if you live there and want to be my friend, drop me a line.

Madrid Gig Streaming?

I can't guarantee anything, as I don't know on which part of the website it will be available, if at all. However, I've been told my gig in Madrid tomorrow night (Thursday 8th May) will be streamed live here: http://www.centralmusical.es/.

PolyRow




Did this a few days ago, a new sequencer for the MMS - PolyRow, inspired by the PolyMachine in ixiQuarks. Nothing much to listen to, just proving the concept as usual.
