Replies: 20

Using sellotape or masking tape for stickers is poor as they fall apart very soon. Hard to find records used to little sticker strips that you'd put through the spindle hole. Their lifespan is very long, and you dont need any scissors to cut them. A shop that specialises in turntablist equipment is ...

Am I right these never got released? Imagine my surprise to find out I had them on tape all along, lying at the bottom of a box full of tapes.

That links not working for me I'm afraid.
It's a mission to find some bassline mixes on the net, and I'm getting bored of the (excellent) Niche Vol1, please try to get your mix onboard.

Any country still sell the blackcurrant Wrigleys Airwaves? They were decommissioned in the UK about a year ago and I have to make do with Cherry menthol ones instead. Also, why does European Wrigleys Extra come in completely different coloured packaging than the UK ones Hold tight the chewing gums g...

Who is responsible for warped vinyl? Is it an accident by the factory machinery, or idiots in the distributors/ record shops who store it incorrectly. really wouldnt be surprised if its the latter, and all the more irritating because its avoidable

Maybe I'm the only one who thinks this, but Itunes as a concept is such a missed oppurtunity. Finding legal MP3's is not an easy thing to do, Itunes is trying to be the most comprehensive mp3 shop out there... but fucks it all up by requiring subscription fees. I have no interest in downloading X am...

that sony version is stunningly similar to the original. Does anyone know of people doing such blatant copies of other dance tracks or was this the only time?

not only the nicotine but also the habbit of holding and inhaling a cig. Thats part of the problem, poeple feel naked without a cigarette in their hand, one of the things that people miss when they give up smoking. It would be good if there was a way around this problem I get wound up when I (a) ca...

And if I was in power I'd do the smart thing and ban cigarettes altogether. Give people a cut off date: you now have 3 years to sign up to a programme where you'll be able to buy cigarettes as a prescription drug. After this date cigarettes can no longer be bought without a prescription. That way th...

To be honest I can understand people being dissapointed about no longer being able to smoke spliffs in a club. I've never really experienced it nor really had the chance and I'm dissapointed that I never will. But I'm going to say something controversial here: smoking cigarettes is pointless. Yes al...

Out of curiosity, what percentage of people at a dubstep night want to smoke blunts? Where I live no one goes to a club to smoke blow, so is this just a london/ England thing. How many of you would not go out because you cant toke. I can understand smokers being really upset as niccotine is a proper...

Would I be right in saying Unlikely is referring to Horsepower/Benny Ill. TBH it's late and I'm not on the ball enough to think of anyone else, though perhaps El-B/ J Da Flex & Darqwan would count, but then they never released albums. Benny Ill it is then, though if he were to delve too much into th...

101 Grime Instrumentals Part 1 is, unsurprisingly, shit, the man behind that clearly went round to several producers houses and asked for any old shit they had on their computer.

Why couldnt it happen though. It's not as if they have to be released on vinyl or anything. A CD isnt too much of a financial risk. It just irritates me a bit that people bang on about the brilliance of early producers like this, and yet even someone who was really committed to Garage at the time, i...
