  1. Yeah that side is off-centre on my copy too. Not by a huge amount, I've seen much worse, but it's noticeable. When a record's badly off-centre I'll expand the centre hole with a scissor blade and shift the record on the platter to compensate. Haven't done that with LM02 though
  2. definition of "instabuy" pretty much the high water mark of UK techno/electronica. had all the 12s since release, they're probably the things I'd grab first if the house was on fire my favourite? mirage
  3. I remember listening to the 808 State radio show late one night - they used to let people phone in and have a bit of banter, laffs etc - and a guy phoned in having come from that gig, upset that "only 10 people were there", and that manchester needs to support their underground artists etc. 808 didn't seem to know who they were (and neither did I!), but encouraged the listeners to go out and see "or-tek" when they were on next. never seen any mention of that gig anywhere until this interview..
  4. think that was in a black dog record from a while back yeah this one https://www.discogs.com/The-Black-Dog-Sex-Magick-Rave/release/2562935
  5. latest news on nuron's youtube is that the preorder for the likemind compilation has been pushed out another month, to mid-feb. I absolutely can't miss that, even though I already have all the original Likemind releases - and it'll almost certainly sell out in about 5 picoseconds
  6. Just came across this by chance: https://bleep.com/release/185639-nuron-as-one-la-source A new volume of La Source - 2 new tracks, and an As One remix of La Source Preorder limited Red vinyl Track previews are up - this might be even better than the first one!
  7. Yeah, I bought it quite a while back. Amazing tool for sure but it hasn't had much use here tbh. I moved over to Bitwig which has many useful sequencing and note processing functions. Also I own Plogue Bidule which can handle most of the lower-level MIDI processing things I need using off-the-shelf modules. I also bought all the HY-Plugins sequencers which I am having a blast with and can recommend to all and sundry Eventually I'm sure I'll want to build a fully-custom sequencer for something or other, and then it'll come into its own 🙂
  8. wtf, mental, well done lad so, like, now you could replace the piano rolls and cover any song, xtal-style - i nominate joy division, day of the lords
  9. Turns out I haven't heard the 2009 versions - I still had the 2004 promo set, which is dire, didn't know they'd done it twice.. A quick sampling and the 2009s seem to be really good, more like louder, punchier versions of the originals without all the life drained from them. Looks like I have some downloading to do!
  10. oh, just the sound of it - like the music is half-submerged in black, inky goo. i've spent a good amount of time working on restoration and denoising, and it's very, very difficult to get right, particularly for the more delicate electronic music, it just gets destroyed. why i don't listen to kraftwerk's remasters - and they spent years trying to get it right, with no doubt the very best equipment. autechre warp tapes 89-93 was an impressive job though
