Lab Halloween Parties

themasqueofthebludeath-1.jpg
finally, here are the details for the Lab Los Angeles Halloween Party at the Nike Blu House.
just as a heads up (not bragging here), this is going to be one of those pain in the ass, hard to get into events, so get there early, and drop Blu Jemz name as much as possible (his real name that is).
but if you don’t want to be elbowing with coolios and porn stars
head down to our Los Angeles store for
THE JUSTICE INSTORE!!!!!
THE JUSTICE INSTORE!!!!!
THE JUSTICE INSTORE!!!!!
7:00pm, Tuesday, Halloween Night
Turntable Lab Los Angeles
424 North Fairfax Avenue (across from Canters)
– FREE ALCOHOL with ID
– DJ Set by Justice!!!
– Frogman will be there!
– The new Lab store employee will be there (she’s a girl)!
then
head over to Safari Sam’s for the show.
there were no advance tkts for this, so all tkts at door.
and as usual,
the Lab people in NYC will be hibernating in their 10 x 10 apartments
watching TIVO and blogging.

Best New Order song; “Temptation.”
“Released on 12″ and 7″ vinyl, both formats had the catalogue number FAC 63. The two formats are not merely different mixes, but entirely separate recordings of the same song. The 7″ version is a more structured version with a commercial synthpop feel; the 12″ is more chaotic with the emphasis on electronic rhythms rather than melody. The 7″ version plays at 33.3rpm to accommodate its length of around five and a half minutes.
Interestingly, the 7″ version has a cold start and a fade-out at its end, and the 12” version has a fade-in at its start, with a cold end. As a result, a popular rumour among New Order fans that to experience the complete “Temptation”, one has to paste together the 7″ and 12″ versions, so there is a cold start and a cold end. Despite the speculation, the band has never confirmed this to be true.
The vocal track on the original 12″ version (this is the version featured in the ‘Retro’ box-set) features an audible scream during the song’s intro. Supposedly, as Bernard Sumner was recording the vocals, other band members ran into the studio and thrust a snowball down his shirt.”

You’re just wrong


The best OMD song is actually Souvenir.
This is as no duh as the fact that the best New Order song is Your Silent Face.

shipset alumni

shipset is such a force and warrants such dedication,
when members leave, they lose focus and end up like this:

djs

went to a halloween party on saturday,
and basically, the dj almost ruined by night. how can you phuc up a halloween party? everybody is in costume, drunk off their asses, and willing dance to anything semi-interesting. it pissed me off so much, i felt i would have to write a post to him. dude was obviously feelin himself, posing like he was killing it, had all the best gear and then some, but failed miserably in several aspects.
1) work on your levels. this is club dj 101. not every song has the same levels, you need to tweak that shit on every song. loudness does not equal goodness.
2) nobody cares about your Jigga-man guest verse collection
3) more than one reggaeton song in a row is much too much, dude played several reggaeton mini-sets (this was his ultimate downfall)
4) prematurely cutting off big hits that everyone wants to hear (Justin) is not a super-dj power
5) straight hip-hop sets are a thing of the past, save it for your boys’ pelle pelle fest.
