chengdumusic.com seem to be saying that:
Ellen Allien and Ken Ishii are playing!
Who knows but this might explain some of that behaviour:
June 10-12? I think this was last weekend.
Clearly not a child of the rave generation. What was that about again? (perhaps a few disused warehouses in Chengdu could use some night tennants!)
Sounds to me like "Scooby" wants to keep it all "safe" and predictible, yawn!
I also did no where say i was opposed to using laptops. What i think is that it gives a wider group of people access to mixing and messing with music than before which is great. The problem with this is there are more crap DJs than before. What took a good number of years and months practice to hone your skills, need not happen now thus resulting in the odd laptop DJ dishing out a very 1 dimensional set.
Good point Dragon on the clubs in Chengdu - I will never forget the time in Babi when I mistakenly nudged the croosfader to prove the theory the DJs were great at miming!
Who the butt kisser? Sounds like you the but kisser for the "high rollers" with crap taste in music!
Oh, and i think the Outstanding Contribution to Stating the Obvious Award goes to banner41 for "99% of DJ's don't write the music they play, they just regurgitate others music". Right up there with pointing and saying Laowai!
Thanks Justcharlie for the link. I do remember getting some of these as CDs in the Hemp House. Liked the Downtempo Pilots one in particular. Returning the favour here and appreciate any comments...

Just want to say a bit thanks to Sam and Audrey for letting us take over the place for our after wedding party. They made the day extra special for us. The food you put out was great and the attention to detail fantastic. We had such as great time we drank all the wheat beer!
We will be back!
