hey joyrex why did you delete the tape thread. makes no sense at all

I did it, there was some super dodgy shit on there. It's back now without the content which would get this forum in a serious amount of shit from some VIPs.

EDIT: not so much a case as throwing the baby out with the bathwater, as throwing the turd out with the bath water IMHO

That's part of watmm culture though. 

Now who wants to discuss Machinedrum's latest ill advised shirt/moustache choices?

I think this thread is a great example of where to moderate (compared to deleting an entire thread for a comment about GWC).

This is pages of off-topic shitstorming. Can someone nuke pages 2-6 inclusive or move it to its own thread or wut?

This man speaks the truth - Let the modding mod mod.

 

EDIT: Shittingly bollocks - Spend the last 20 minutes manually hiding one post at a time until I noticed there was a batch hide thing on this new version of WATerMerMaid ... Hopefully this thread still makes some semblance of sense!

Update 1.1:
So I am deeply sorry for my absence, it has been extremely difficult to lay it all down on the internet for the world to see, particularly when other peoples struggles seem a lot worse than my own. Some of you may already be aware of my housing troubles where I was technically homeless, I was never on the streets but I definitely had to hang out in a few parks for a prolonged period of time. From there I spent nearly 10 months not really having my own place to call home and certainly no studio. One of the temporary places I was staying got burgled and I lost all the hard drives and dongles I had been keeping with me for safekeeping. This meant I lost access to 100s of tracks I had written over the last 12 years. Besides the loss of my music and having to get a roof over my head , other serious things materialised which I am not willing to talk about on the internet. I found it hard to address music stuff when my life was in such disarray and only now I can try and get things going again. Your patience, support and understanding has been amazing and I can't really put into words how much I have appreciated it. Here's to moving forward....

I have everyones emails so far and will reply to you shortly

❤️

Oh man, that's a real shiter. Glad to hear he made it through.

He should do what EOD did a couple years back and hold a Bandcamp sale, get the folks flooding in and spending monies to help him get back on his feet.

Really hope things will be fine for him, this tapes story was kind of a let down but he’s still my fav producer of the late rephlex years (with eod of course).

Seems that the whole situation Dave was going through was alone a huge personal apocalypse, but getting also your hard drives stolen must have felt like the last straw to the whole mess. ffs think about the irony: he kept them as some backup so at least his tracks would be safe, but eventually they ended up to be stolen by some asshat, who prolly sold them to some pothead for nickels to format them and download his favorite pornhub playlist there or something. 12 years of work out of the window. Makes me even more glad he's back on his feet. I tip my hat.

I figured that it must have been something rough like this.  Sad to hear that he has been so down on his luck the past couple years.  Here's hoping it was just  a bump in the road for him.

Awww man, this breaks my heart to hear - on the technical side of things, all samples, presets, notes, setups etc. might also be gone...
There is only one thing to do, push on even harder. The love for what you do should never be stop - Sometimes the downsides of life gets you up even stronger...
Well easy to say one might say, but I have been in the same boat with stolen computer and harddrives, harddrives turning into garbage and without a roof living in a shit basement without any windows and moist all over. I am sure you are reading this at some point, so keep going, we love your music and you should be proud.

One a side note, there is for the most time a reason for liking to mess with gear, staying indoor and living in a sort of fantasy world while making music, being social is not always easy, so I hope it doesnt have anything to do with stress or anxiety.
