Record Store Day – april 21, 2012

April 20th, 2012 Comments off

Domani 21 aprile sarà la giornata annuale dei negozi di dischi per la gioia di tutti gli amanti del disco in vinile;
potete controllare sul sito ufficiale del Record Store Day quale egozio di dischi vicino a voi aderisce all’iniziativa.




Our second favorite day of the year, the one where we get to play Santa and reveal the loot under the record-store-shaped tree (insert your own gift-revealing analogy here). We’re thrilled to tell you that the list of titles being released ONLY AT RECORD STORES is only a click away, in TWO versions: A handy PDF that you can use as a shopping/wish list and a Pull Down menu with more detail and artwork.  These are the pieces that are available only in REAL LIVE RECORD STORES on April 21, the fifth annual Record Store Day.  A few things we wanted to tell you first, though:

*We expect to have all available art up on the site in a few days. It’s a work in progress. Keep checking back if the art you’re looking for isn’t there.

*If you are accessing The List via our RSD GUIDE App on your phone, thanks! But know that the list is LARGE and has a lot of data. Just sayin’.


*There are three categories on this list. These are them:
RECORD STORE DAY EXCLUSIVE RELEASES. Exclusively available on Record Store Day at Record Store Day participating stores. Will not be available anywhere else in the same format.
RECORD STORE DAY LIMITED RUN/REGIONAL FOCUS RELEASES. Also exclusively available on Record Store Day at Record Store Day participating stores, but the quantities of these titles are EXTREMELY limited. Under 1000, and WAY under 1000 in some cases. We felt it was only right to put them on a special sub-list, so that everyone is clear on the odds.
‘RECORD STORE DAY FIRST’ RELEASE.  These are titles that you can find on Record Store Day at Record Store Day participating stores. So if you’re a fan of the artist, you get first listen. At some point in the future, generally four to six weeks, these titles will be available, in the same format, at other retailers.

*There is chatter in the world about other titles that may not be on the list. These may be things that have a 4/21 street date, but are not RSD releases. Something you want not on this list? If yes, are you going to buy it at an indie record store? If yes, awesome.

*We’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating. It’s always a good idea to be BFFs with your neighborhood record store and let them know what you might be looking for. They can’t guarantee you will walk out with what you want, but it’s a good place to start. ALL STORES MAY NOT ORDER ALL RELEASES. ALL STORES MAY NOT GET EVERYTHING THEY ORDER. Record Store Day titles are limited for a number of reasons, and all in all, that’s a good thing. But please bear that in mind when you find something isn’t available. We’re all grown-ups, right?

INTERNATIONAL LISTS. We don’t control what gets released in which countries. Someday, every release will be available everywhere without issues (we hope!) but that day’s not today. Meanwhile, here’s a link to what’s available on Record Store Day in other countries. (We’ll add more country links as they come in:

classic breaks: Boogie On Reggae Woman

April 18th, 2012 Comments off

Stevie Wonder – Boogie On Reggae Woman -lyrics-

I like to see you boogie
Right across the floor
I like to do it to you
Till you holla for more

I like to reggae
But you dance too fast for me
I’d like to make love to you
So you can make me scream

Boogie on reggae woman
What is wrong with me
Boogie on reggae woman
Baby can’t you see

I’d like to see both of us
Fall deeply in love
I’d like to see you na…
Under the stars above
Yes I would

I’d like to see both of us
Fall deeply in love – yeah
I’d like to see you in the raw
Under the stars above

So boogie on reggae woman
What is wrong with you
Boogie on reggae woman
What you tryin’ to do

Can I play? Can I play?

Boogie on reggae woman
What is wrong with me
Boogie on reggae woman
What you tryin’ to do

Boogie on reggae woman
Let me do it to you
Boogie on reggae woman
What you tryin’ to do


bonus mix:

(Rammellzee and Toxic)

Mixxx v 1.10.0

April 16th, 2012 Comments off

Scopro solo adesso che è stata rilasciata la nuova versione di Mixxx, dj software open source in free download qui:

Mi sembra (IMHO) che nella nuova versione siano stati risolti alcuni problemi di stabilità e di continuità e qualità del flusso audio.

Ho testato la nuova versione con l’MPD24 (le impostazioni della vecchia versione sono rimaste attive e funzionanti) e sembra che il controller midi in coppia con Mixxx 1.10.0 funzioni senza nessun problema.





Mixxx 1.10.0 Released!

Happy holidays from the Mixxx development team. After a smooth beta period, we are happy to present Mixxx 1.10.0!

Download Mixxx 1.10.0 Now

Available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

Mixxx 1.10.0 brings several hard-hitting features that are the culmination of a year’s worth of work by the development team.

What we’re packing in Mixxx 1.10.0:

  • Rewritten and Improved Vinyl Control Support
    • Completely rewritten vinyl-style pitch-bending for clean, analog-like sound.
    • Absolute, relative, and constant vinyl modes.
    • Rock-solid support for Serato Vinyl/CD or Traktor Vinyl at 33 or 45 RPM.
    • Single-deck Vinyl Control
    • End-of-record Mode
    • Improved needle skip prevention.
    • Can use different vinyl types on each deck!
    • Improved audio quality when scratching.
    • Support for track selection using the lead-in area of the vinyl and needle-drop hotcues.
    • Track lead-in for scratching before the start of songs.
    • Waveform smoothing to prevent wobbly waveforms.
    • New built-in vinyl signal analyzer.
  • 4 Sampler Decks
  • Beatloops, Loop Halve/Double Buttons
    • Handy beatloop buttons let you quickly throw down an 8-beat loop as you transition from one song to the next.
  • Quantized Loops, Hotcues and Beatloops
    • Turn on quantization mode for a deck and all of your loops, hotcues, and beatloops will snap to the nearest beat when you place them.
  • Phase Synchronization
    • Sync button now synchronizes both the BPM and phase of beats.
  • Beatgrid Adjust Feature
    • Is your beatgrid misaligned? Easily adjust it with one click.
  • Microphone Support
    • Streaming and club DJs alike will love this feature. Plug in your microphone and MC your show, all without the need for an external mixer.
  • Spinning Turntable Widgets and Waveform Scratching
    • Skins now come with juicy spinning turntables that you can scratch to your heart’s delight.
    • If vinyl control is enabled, vinyl signal quality can also be rendered to the spinning widgets.
    • Waveform overviews now act as a progress bar for track analysis.
  • M4A Support for Windows Vista and Windows 7 users.
    • Mixxx previously could not support M4A on Windows due to licensing issues, but that restriction is now lifted with our new Windows Media Foundation M4A plugin. Mixxx on Mac OS X already supports M4A.
