Who out of you guys mixes? Who produces? And who has ever spun poi / staff or used any other kind of skill toy.

I've been mixing about 8 years and I play about with beats n pieces. I've mostly been involved in the house and dnb scenes in that time but I spin just about anything for my own pleasure.

I think I love my MPC1000, my PDX2000's and my XONE62 more than I love toys eek

Well, I guess I missed the official "board raid" but I am certainly enjoying the friendly aftermath over at nsb. Nice to meet you all.
I've been mixing music for a few years...7? 8? I've tried to produce some stuff; and properly suck at it.
As for skill toys... I used to rock the nunchaku (nunchuks) when I was in high school, I think every guy tried to make some at some point. We made a small ninja movie once, I weilded a staff in that, but it was for self defence...

I've been DJing for about 8 years and producing tunes for about 6 of them.

I've got a record just out and more to follow - things are looking pretty good if you like that sort of thing..

I can juggle pretty good but so far no poi experience although I did borrow a friend of a friends' glowing blue staff at Glade for a while but was too mashed to know what to do with it...

I'm definitely better at beat juggling smile

everytime i try to swing poi i hit myself in the knee. its got to the point where im not sure if im doing it on purpose or not.

as for mixing, been doing it about 3 years, and in that time ive played a few clubs, a festival and a couple of Free parties in an abandoned mental hospital in manchester. its been fun smile
currently im studying at the school of sound recording, in the hope that i can either learn to produce my own music or become an engineer and make money from other peoples talent wink

I DJ under the name dtism and founded the dubiously named Armitage Skanks Soundcistern after putting on a night in a converted underground victorian toilet. I've been mixing since the mid 90s and played everywhere from toilets to Ministry of Sound (which come to think of it... wink ).



You can check some of our mixes at www.armitage-skanks.com and see our ugly mushes wink



I also have a show on nsbradio.co.uk on saturday mornings 11am - 1pm UK time (although not this saturday as I'm going to a free little festy thing in Regents Park with my lovely lady) where you can hear my incoherent ramblings and anything from triphop to drum n bass. The lovely Miss T used to be my radio partner in crime, but alas she has a new job which keeps her busy most saturdays frown (not as much fun without her on the show)

Which dog food? I reccommend James Wellbeloved food, mollydog had to go on that as she got allergies. Seriously, anything cheaper than Butchers- you're being ripped off.

Hoppers are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.

Slater - I heard about those parties in the old hospital - they sounded cool.
Anyways, your in Manc? In that case you have no excuse not to meet myself, bubbles, neon, cantus and the rest of the manc spinners biggrin

Private - There's a few people on here who do fire nunchaku. It looks absolutely amazing!

Youthful - congrats on the tune. What name do you record under, whats the track called and what label is it on?
You'd be surprised how good staff spinning is for strengthening your fingers and arms for scratching!

Ag4111 - Go and practise more then, and lay off the dog food. It is a little known fact that Dangerous Dave Pearce used to play for Wotsits in his early career.

Dtism - There's some cool pics on your site. I'll definitely have a listen to the mixes on there at some point. When I get my ass in gear I'll upload a couple of mixes so you guys can hear them. Did you play at the Ministry when Jazzy M was there? He used to be monthly ressie for a night called Frisky in Northampton that I was resident for. biggrin

Jo - You know that up here there are STILL people that eat tripe! (bloody northeners wink )

Majestik - Can you scratch or juggle the strangers that you mix with yet? wink

I think thats everyone cool

I DJ under the name shaman and promote a night called Urban Nights in Shoreditch, at The Pool.

I've been mixing about 4 years now, although first tried on others decks about 10 years back.

Never tried any of these toys. Always liked to watch though and wish I could juggle.

Not too bad at keepie-ups mind.

So. When's the HOP-NSB party gonna be then?

And who else on here DJs (especially breaks)?

James

I as going to suggest a HOP-NSB party. It would have to be outdoors though. People tend to get upset when you spin fire inside. I have a few mates in London who are due a visit so I'll try to check out one of your nights while I'm there. smile

Basic juggling is easy once you get the rhythm. Go to oddballs on camden lock and get yourself some juggling balls. You'll have it in no time.

As far as I know there is one dnb DJ on here and shed load of psy trancers. I was the only breaks DJ in the village till you guys showed up biggrin But then I play everything and have a huge disjointed record collection to prove it wink I think it leads to creative mixing though. I may be wrong.

Cool.

Would be good to have a meet up I reckon.

Perhaps somewhere with a terrace for the fire.

London is the place for me. Come on over to NSB and lets start a discussion on it.

BTW. Anyone got any records by Steelzawheelz???

No my Ministry gigs have been fairly recent, with the eden collective. Did you ever go to Frisky? I always imagined it being full of girls wearing fur bikinis and fluffy boots (not really my scene wink )
