1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Oi! Conne! No self portraits allowed in this thread! That pic of yours belongs in "What aren't you wearing now"

    Wow really? I like Plaid a lot as well, but thought Black Dog had it going on! I guess it's b/c Plaid lacks the mid-eastern vibe that BD had on Spanners. I love it.

    It's a huge genre, and one I find a bit hard to define sometimes. Here's a list of some of my favourites that I think fit in here:

    New Order/Joy Division
    Postal Service
    Depeche Mode
    VaST
    Aphex Twin
    Presence
    Goldfrapp
    Kosheen
    KLF
    Bentley Rhythm Ace
    LCD Soundsystem
    Chemical Brothers
    Odd Modern
    Talvin Singh
    Nitin Sawnhey
    Thievery Corporation
    UNKLE/James Lavelle
    Ian Pooley
    Kruder & Dorfmeister
    DJ Shadow

    Some locals:
    Gotye (Australian)
    Endorphin (Australian - does some nice Satie variations)
    Strawpeople (NZ)

    Some old guilty pleasures:
    Alan Parsons Project
    Enigma
    Human League

    I've been to a few Paul Johnson parties in my time, and although I don't like house, especially the chicago/discoy variants, I can respect the "founding fathers" of the genre. Around here, the original guys like Juan Atkins, Jeff Mills, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, and Carl Craig still do play out a lot, and although some of their music is not my style, it is kind of neat to hear them drop a track they used (or made) in the 80's. There's something to be said about being able to use such old material but keep it sounding fresh. They do a good job of that.

    Juan Atkins is playing in NYC tomorrow night... I'm thinking of dropping by for old times' sake

    I've been to some good parties at the Sullivan Room. Looks like this shouldn't disappoint.

    This year has been amazing for the Kompakt label. The Field and Gui Boratto's new albums are some of the best I've heard this year in any genre. Oh, and I'm now the proud owner of a Sherman Filterbank 2, so we'll see what wonderful EM comes out of this beast. [​IMG]
