So Bam Bam Bronson is rolling into town in two weeks and I left it too late to get my ticket for the evening show. “But Mike?” you ask. “Why don’t you use your list of extensive contacts in The Industry™ to score a VIP pass?”. Here’s why. I got me a ticket to the 4pm show. Yeah that’s right. The hip hop matinée.
To prep me for this My Bronson has been kind enough to plop out a mixtape. In my day we called them EPs (shit, I already made that joke) but it’s pretty good and funded by Bolton’s own Reebok. You can download it here. Or peep my favourite track NOW!
Action Bronson – Tan Leather
I’m wondering if anyone else in the DJ game has more success than me using a Roland SP-303 as an effects unit.
It seems to offer that function but there’s no real easy way to configure it. I can hook it up to my mixer effects easily enough but then to apply the effects you have to set an effect going and select “EXT. SOURCE” when you want the effects to be played. I just want to be able to do killer reggae echo stops and then cut in the next record but I appear to be making a royal hash of it because I need about four hands to make it work.
I have a few more points to make about the wonderful 303 (aka Dr. Sample) but I’ll save these for another day. Keeps my post count up.
