Re: Mixes

Sorry, no that one does nothing for me. There's no 'acid house riff' in it either. Acid, by definition needs to have the squelchy, squibbly sounds of the Roland TB-303, like this:

Armando - Land Of Confusion

And a more recent one:

DK7 - The Difference

Re: Mixes

Out of those ones Ben, yes, the Apparat - OUTLIER (Solomun Remix) track is OK, but I'm not keen on the others. The Bronski Beat one is familiar from the 80s, and the remix isn't drastically different really. I was into trace from about 1991-94 maybe, because for me, by the mid 90s it became horribly...

Re: Mixes

Again, the intro in that last one is OK but when it gets going it doesn't do anything for me. It's not really surprising considering we got into electronic dance music at completely different times and have a different mindset. However, here's another one that you may like from Orbital. It's about 2...

Re: Mixes

Sorry Ben those last two don't do it for me personally. I presume you are familiar with this tune, which must have influenced the likes of Anjunadeep a lot: Chicane Featuring Maire Brennan Of Clannad - Saltwater (Original Mix) If you haven't heard it I think you're going to like it ;) It got played ...

Re: next tropo?

I can't see any decent tropo in the UK for the forseeable future, apart from brief enhancements. The weather is locked in a mainly unsettled and often cool mode. @PFM907, did you not get anything interesting in that big tropo last September? I remember plenty here from Germany, Denmark and a few fro...

Re: Mixes

Ben, I forgot to mention BBC Radio 1 Dance which is streamed via BBC Sounds:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/live: ... _one_dance

That's probably worth a listen.

BTW that last one of yours Ben didn't do it for me. It puts me in mind of Enya with beats.

Re: Mixes

If you liked this,you might be fond of this one too, sensual vocals and nice melodic chords: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kI2hix9I21M It sounds like a house track for a film score. Or a house remix of music from a film. The gated effects at the beginning made me think of this one, which I think ...

Actually yes that is quite a nice laid-back tune. There's far worse out there.

As you like melodic deep stuff Ben, you might like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXhqDeTSEl4 - Sueño Latino - Sueño Latino (Paradise Mix) Beautiful deep Italian house music with sexy vocals in Spanish!

Re: Mixes

Interesting Ben. I had a listen through the first mix and it's not really my sort of thing although there were some OK tracks in there. The mixing is good though. I'll have to have a look at the second mix tomorrow as it's getting late. I've been into electronic/dance music since the late '80s, and ...

Re: 2020 DX Review

Hi again Ben. According to FMLIST both Safed and Jerusalem are 40 kW vertical on 87.6 so either should be possible. There is a note that the power for the Jerusalem tx is estimated based on other frequencies from this location. Maybe next time the signal(s) will be strong enough for RDS so the exact...
