Disgusting with Dennis Ferrer @ DJmag Pool Party Miami WMC 2011

He played mid afternoon at the DJmag Party at The Shelborne in Miami and then snuck up into our Pioneer condo to see how he could run Traktor through the DJM-900 nexus using just one USB lead! The DJM-900 nexus faders, knobs and switches can then be assigned in Traktor to control the internal effects. Building on the creative options this offered, he then marvelled at the new Color FX such as Space, Dub Echo and White Noise.

Alex Niggemann off from DJmag Pool Party with CDJ 2000s and rekordbox

Alex Niggemann, fresh from playing the DJmag Pool Party at The Shelborne Hotel, receives a hands-on walk through the possibilities afforded by the CDJ-2000 and rekordbox prepared tracks.

Resident rekordbox whizz-kid Rik Parkinson shows Alex quantized looping where tracks can be looped in the mix and will always stay perfectly in time, as well as tagging tracks and one-decimal place BPM accuracy that allows the DJ to line up the BPM's on both CDJ's for a perfect mix every time.

Solardish Records presents 'Solardish Sampler 2011 - Miami Is Calling', the definitive sound to one of the most highly anticipated events in the year, the 'Winter Music Conference' in Miami.

This sampler showcases 12 of the hottest tracks and remixes. Expect big, exclusive tech-house monsters from Talkie (Japan) and Jose Del Valle (Spain). The guys from Systemfunk (Spain) deliver a groovy and funky house track. Then we dive deeper into soulful house music with Maison D' Ame and Neal Paul (both from Australia). The guys from Groove Cocktail (Poland) remix the German band Fil-á-Fil. A deep house track comes from Mr. Marcie (Netherlands).

More uplifting sounds come from Vintage System (Poland) and Philthy Phonics (UK), who remixed Stewart McCarthys (UK) track. Spanish producer Javier Varez, who is releasing his tracks under labels like 'I Records' and 'Alma Soul Music', shows his talents with this beautiful vocal remix from Dush feat. Mr. Maph. The sampler ends with two fantastic tracks from Leo Cury & Jo Borges (Brazil) and A-Bee & Tom Vagabondo (Czech Republic).

Nothing goes better with the sun and a pool than delicious cocktails, frozen drinks and quality house music. 'Solardish Sampler 2011 - Miami Is Calling' has a vibe to capture that special moment.

The Doors - Riders on the Storm (Octav Paul Edit) - Free Donwload

This is a short edit for The Doors - Riders on the Storm.

I arranged the notes for the piano and the bass line, and added a nice dubby beat on top of it, and it sound reaaly nice with the big compression I added to the master sound.

Riders on the storm by The Doors - Octav Paul Edit by octavpaul

The song isn't finished.

I dunno what it will be like, of if it will have a final master version.

I'm gonna look for a preety nice voice to make the full cover of the song.

Anybody interrested, please give me a shout on

Robert Babicz - Favourite analog gear freak !!!

Does tripped-out acid lover and underground techno overlord Robert Babicz dream of electronic Holodecks? Yes he does, so prepare to be beamed up as he takes us deep deep down into the heart of his studio and his sound. En route we get a 360-degree view of his set-up through another type of simulated reality. And it's here, in a very special bolt-hole that's a real picture in purple, that his creative magic reigns as he conjures up music through ‘mind looping technology' - keeping it real with a vintage Studer A80 tape machine!
Germany's Rob runs his own label, Babiczstyle, and has released music across a plethora of others such as Treibstoff, BPitch and Systematic, where he released his acclaimed Immortal Changes album. Next for this month is Robert Babicz Volume 001, an intimate album of old and new gems out on Babiczstyle, an imprint he describes as ‘a platform with the highest possible audio quality'.
Anyway, get an uber-real flavour of Rob now as he does it Babiczstyle Down the Production Hole...
First can you tell us something about your frames of reference/what you think makes for a high quality electronic sound recording?
I think this is not so easy to answer; I can only say this from my own perspective. For me a good recording is something where you can sit down, close your eyes, and take a walk inside the track with your mind. A good mixdown will let you go into a track, will play with your subconscious, and will help your brain to imagine things. A good track will not hurt your ears even when you hear it on a 20,000-watt system.

 What's your current music production set-up like?
The best way to show this is to take a look at this new interactive 360-degree picture of my little studio... Studio 360-degree View »
I have a lot of outboard stuff, ‘cause I think the software synths these days are very good, but they still lack a bit of warmth, so I can give this to them through my EQ/Compressor collection.
