Ps. By the way -- any clever posts my husband may have made were probably mine;).

 

:thumb: Welcome, PaolaD. Enjoyed you presenting and the overall interview as well. Whew! Good thing I'm polite and show respect when talking to your husband about music... could have tongue_smile.gif been you all along.

 

Perhaps, you could bring a smile to his face by reminding him I'm that cat who use to Phone & Fax my orders for African Music into Stern's Music in London. ALL the way frombiggrin.gif Los Angeles!

My man — I'll never forget that story. It's right up there in my top 10. Every time I get a mailer from Sterns I think of it. How you been? What's news? And geez, now all my posts are suspect:) But it's actually more along the lines of this: Paola always finds great bands and amazing articles and tells me about them. Then I share them and take all the credit. But I always say, if I wasn't aping her stuff, then I'd have nothing to talk about at all. Seems fair to me.

 

What have you been listening to lately?

:thumb: Great to meet up with you! Hope all is well in your days and nights. Sadly, due to personal circumstances, I have listened to very little music since December 2012. And have discovered very few new artists. Though, being on Head-Fi brings a new finds via the "What are you listening to now" thread.

 

Currently, in the middle of a move, so my entire full size audio rig is in storage. Worst, I've been selling off some of those pieces to meet expenses. However, my transition is a temporary one. Both me and the audio rig shall rise again - with a new look and new swing to it.wink_face.gif

It can be a little difficult to sift through the BS & the opinions based on nothing, but overall Head-Fi has provided a base of knowledge that's been very useful in my audio-journey. I'm glad Head-Fi exists and I'm thankful to those that made this thing possible. It's usually pretty cool. Thanks, Jude & Co.!

There are 2 things id like to comment here on:

1.The part when Jude said that you put some music on your gear for someone and they ask "What is this?".

 

Last friday I played "up in the air - 30 second to mars" and my cousin, who has been one of my best friends since childhood asked me with eyes open like plates "Where do you find these things?"

 

I wanted to tell her that I always listened to all sorts of music, and that the only differance was now thanks to the Head-Fi community, that  I now had an equipment good enought so that everyone could understand the beauty of all types of music.

Of course, you cant put that sort of feeling in words, not well enought, so i just smiled and asked if she wanted to hear another one :D.

 

2. What does the community me for me? The oportunity to learn from others and teach others what i have learned. In both cases the purpouse is to invite others into a great world, and its amazing how gratefull we are for this gift (knowledge), one that we will always carry with us.

I started going to parties in the late 90's and fell in love with electronic music. Everything was awesome for a few good years and we called electronic techno. Then around 2000 allot of people started saying that techno was it's own genre, beep beep boop boop type stuff, and that we should call it EDM instead.

I was fine with that at first but then it seemed like allot of the dancers disappeared and all the parties went from underground virgin venues that you had to call a hotline the night before to well known clubs you knew about 2 months ahead of time. Either that or it was a gothed out porno party instead. The music at the clubs at that time was extremely jump-upish, the music at the goth events was extremely dark. Not at all what I would call good dancing music.

After a while I find out the production company's name that threw the first few parties I went to and just went to their parties and big outdoor events. Believe it or not but your local dive bar probably brings in way more techno talent than you think it does in the winter time.

In conclusion when I hear the words dance music or edm I think of all the fist-pumping hooligan ravers, or the nymphomaniac goth guys and gals that thought they were tha bomb on the dance floor. More like Electronic fist-pumpin and sexual intercourse music.tongue.gif

Hey dude, see what you make of these mixes I did a whiles ago - it's a blend of donk and bounce with some old school rave classics revamped to a faster bpm - hope you enjoy smily_headphones1.gif
