The Rebirth Session Episode 123 (27th July 2007)

This show was instrumental in winning me over once and for all to the CDJ revolution, and it’s actually the occasion I often refer to when speaking of the amazing benefits of a digital market compared to the vinyl one.

First of all, it was the first time I realised the amazing potential of the Dolphins vs Everything mashup and what it could do with Suru, something I wound up experimenting with a lot over the next few months, before taking the next step with it almost a year later.

But mostly this was memorable for the next to last tune from Tragida, who often came in the chat at Pure during my shows around this time. As you can tell from all my tracklists, I’m a bit fan of his work! Anyway, about halfway through the show he came in the chat and sent me a link to a new tune he’d just finished. Whilst still broadcasting live on air, I downloaded this tune, then burned it to a CD, and played it later on in the same show less than an hour later (though I only had it as ID – ID at the time, the release came later).

To me it’s an amazing example of what can be achieved these days by the power of the internet in terms of music, and I realised that a vinyl industry with its’ pressings, its’ distributors, its’ retailers, and the subsequent delays in getting the music to the customers was never going to compete with that.

But there’s something liberating about the fact that a young producer in Italy can finish a tune one morning and have it played in a set a few hours later by someone in England, broadcast all across the world. I think it allows everyone the chance for their voice to be heard, and that can only ever be a good thing in the long run 🙂

The Aaron D 9-Hour Set Challenge – The Rebirth Session Episode 121 (13th July 2007)

This show started as a an off-hand comment in the forums, whereby I heard of a private challenge that had been set up a while back by a guy called Aaron D.

The challenge was simple – do a 9 hour set but only use tunes from this year. I thought it was an intriguing prospect, given that it was only early July, but there’d been so many great releases I thought it could be done.

It’s no walk in the park – I broadcast live from 1pm till 10pm and had to contend with unusual obstacles to mixing. More toilet breaks, hunger (ravenous – but thankfully Steph made me sandwiches :D) back pain, and general fatigue from the concentration and focus. Some of the show I was admittedly struggling with – the fifth through to the seventh hour were particularly hard – but the Likuida remix of Before You Go became my saviour tune and gave me my second wind for the finish 🙂

Granted, I can’t see me doing one of these again. My long-term back problems likely wouldn’t allow it – but then, never say never 😉

As for whether or not I passed the challenge, that’s a matter for some debate. Some of the tunes I played were unreleased, some didn’t come out until 2008 in the end, and one or two might have been from December 2006 though I can’t recall which they were.

This was also a first…the encore tune was the first time I’d played one of my own productions in a show, unfinished as it was then though. I’ll get to the story behind Trailblazer another time though 🙂

From The Ashes – The Rebirth Session Episode 120 (6th July 2007)

Having loved my previous demo so much, following it up was always going to be tricky. I’d had the same issue just over a year earlier, when my delight at Other Worlds Than These had left me indifferent to Across New Horizons afterwards.

That said, having recently lost Gatecrasher which was like losing an old friend, there was a sense of wanting to do the place justice, and it made the choice of title for the demo very easy. And on the whole I do like it and how it turned out, but for one small problem that even I didn’t notice straight away.

From The Ashes - Front Cover

*As it turns out, this tracklist is only the intention, and not the reality. Because instead of playing Static Blue – Aerial I actually played Lokhen – Northern Winds (Sequentia remix). Which I then duly played again when I intended to shortly afterwards. A schoolboy error that depresses me to this day, but which I leave untouched nonetheless 😉

In my defence, I maintain that the mistake was easy to make, as I can demonstrate:

This CD is a constant reminder of my fallability

Back From The Dead Episode 089 (2nd July 2007)

Having done UK In The Mix 2, the guest mix, and another guest mix that never got aired (which I will post one day), I discussed with Dan about bringing BFTD back from the dead, so to speak, on Afterhours.FM 🙂

Strangely enough, this almost never happened, as I knew I was due to start in July, but didn’t realise it was the first Monday until that very day, so I had to get in from work about 4pm, record the two hour show and upload it in time for broadcast at 8pm! However I’m pleased to say that I’ve never been one to miss a deadline, and duly made it with about an hour to spare.

Rush job or not, it felt good to be back, to a new audience that was growing rapidly and I was made to feel very welcome 🙂 And to be honest now there’s nowhere I’d rather be 😀
