KORG Electribe for the iPad

Posted: January 6, 2011 in Music, Tech

Korg’s ELECTRIBE·R has been coveted by dance musicians for ten years running. Today, this indispensable instrument has been reborn as a dedicated iPad app – the KORG iELECTRIBE virtual analog beatbox!
With the iELECTRIBE, sound creation is easy, fun and intuitive – just as on a vintage analog synthesizer. Simply choose a part (or sound) and touch the 16-step sequencer to quickly build a groove. This easy-to-use interface combines forces with the iPad’s 9.7” multi touch display to offer an intuitive “hardware” feel, sure to inspire and captivate the imagination of any user.The iELECTRIBE faithfully recreates the historic ELECTRIBE·R’s entire sound engine and sequencer capabilities. In addition, it provides advanced Motion Sequencing, eight supercharged effect types, plus 64 new preset patterns that instantly allow the user to create music in a wide variety of dance and electronic music styles. Get started today!

Cosmovox vs Electribe MX

Posted: January 6, 2011 in Music, Tech

I found this interesting article about an artist who decided to shun conventional distribution methods, for a different approach like Radioheads In Rainbows promotion by making making his latest album available for free download. It’s available on BitTorrent on sites like The Pirate Bay, with so-called ‘OiNK replacement’ site,, providing the album on ‘free leech’ to encourage more downloads.

xwax – Open Source Serato for Linux

Posted: January 6, 2011 in Music, Tech

xwax is open-source vinyl emulation software for Linux. It allows DJs and turntablists to playback digital audio files (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC and more), controlled using a normal pair of turntables via timecoded vinyls.

It’s designed for both beat mixing and scratch mixing. Needle drops, pitch changes, scratching, spinbacks and rewinds are all supported, and feel just like the audio is pressed onto the vinyl itself.

DnB Radio Crew meetup. London 2009

Posted: September 6, 2009 in Music

This is a backdated post, I just got the pics from my lovely Amen. Brilliant photos. ♥

So Amen was staying with me (for those of you that dont know he’s from Cologne), Slurpee was over from Drupalcon, Paris (he’s from Chicago) and DTR (Essex homeboy) decided to join us too. We picked up Slurpee and DTR from St. Pancras (although I got a fucking £120 fine for stopping for less than 5 seconds on a red route. Bastards!) and the boys jumped in. Found a parking spot round the back of the SouthBank and we hit London with our cameras, pure tourist style. Was SUCH an awesome day, was amazing to put faces to nicks and chat about DnBr and the universe. Amen was whistling Starlight by Netsky and soon it was stuck in all of our heads. Im sure I wont hear that tune again without remebering this day.

Thanks for coming down guys, great to meet you and Im determined to make it a regular (more organised thing) so, see you next year.

Pub lunch along the river.

The SouthBank through fisheye. This place is where I mis-spent my youth.

Kids Painting a tube train. Was stoked some parent had the initiative to take their kids out to graff legally and safely under their watch, Im not going to start my rant…

Chilling at SB. Thats Nial sitting with Slurpee, known that dude since I was 13…

After wandeing across the river and seeing some sights we stopped at this Morroccon bar smoking Shishas and drinking Mint tea.

Catching joke. Was a theme of the day…

Street art. This one deserves a post.

Deep in convo. Another theme of the day 😀

Heading home before nightfall….

And in case youre interested, THIS was the tune of the day:


I recommend downloading this one (I know Im bound to be biased, but we’e agreed this is one of the good ones so far…)

Chromatic and I had the MOST fun coming up with this show. To honor the meteor shower which took place while we were broadcasting 6TS#20, we themed the show all sky and star-like, so the WHOLE tracklist is related to stars, space and the cosmos. Listen out for new exclusive (AND TOTALLY AWESOME!) track by the one like Chromatic himself, titled Radient. Which is VERY relevant (although I only realised on hinesight. Doh.) Here is a wiki definition:

“Radiant (meteor shower):
The radiant or apparent radiant of a meteor shower is the point in the sky, from which (to a planetary observer) meteors appear to originate. The Perseids, for example, are meteors which appear to come from a point within the constellation of Perseus….An observer might see such a meteor anywhere in the sky but the direction of motion, when traced back, will point to the radiant. A meteor that does not point back to the known radiant for a given shower is known as a sporadic and is not considered part of that shower.”

Enjoy ♥

It was a last minute decision this week, I had it in my head that I was too busy, but after a 14 hour (no break) day to get a pointless website up I decided it was time to leave the computer. Or at least pack it up and set it up in the lab. So here it is, a bonus Six Towers Soul this week.
