    Default Coldcut is watching you

    This was posted on the DJTT facebook page, thought it needed to be on here. It's definitely Worth the read.

    DJTT receives faint praise from Musical Gods.
    In an interview today Coldcut were reported as saying that DJTT is "nearly interesting" and may in the future be "worthy of some mild attention".

    We rock!

    I like this part

    Ok, let me put it another way, say you are a leading heart surgeon and someone comes along to you and said weíve invented this new procedure for heart transplants, itís going to cut 50% off your time in theatre and itís going to reduce the chance of organ rejection by 50%, so ultimately itís going to save loads of lives... there would still be people who spoke out against it just because thatís human nature but youíd have to be an idiot to reject this new method just because it didnít take the same amount of skill and dexterity as the old way of doing things right?

    lol let's not get ahead of ourselves now, they never praised DJTT - they said Ean and controller djing was cool/interesting, DJTT was just mentioned so we didn't confuse which Ean Golden they were talking about...

    My favorite section (talking about traditional vs. digital djing):

    MB: But enough of this rock and roll idiocy! I think itís a fair question about what constitutes actual DJing now but not one that can be adequately answered.

    JM: It can be answered by the floor. If the floorís pumping; itís DJing.

    Again Digital Djs need to distinguish themselves from previous generations of Djs. Why should you need approval from the old guard, music blogs, and social networks, is that going to make you feel better about yourselves or somehow make you a better Dj?
    Do you think playing the same old tracks everybody else plays will get you props.There are really no new sounds to speak of these days, djs are still playing the same old genres we were playing 25 years ago!:eek:
    The only way this new generation of Djs will get its recognition is the way they present the music and make it their own.
    Did Ean Golden really invent controllerism? Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't the Roland MC-505 built in 1998 wasn't this the humble beginnings(cryptic at times) of what we now see as controllerism. Didn't this device change the way we thought about making and performing music.
    Ean Golden and his com padres are pioneers in the D.I.Y. style of Djing. This is what will set the new generation of digihead djs apart from its predecessors,being able to not only engineer their equipment but back that up with unique presentations and performances. the ground work is being SET!..................and they used to say Kraftwerk wasn't real music.
