  1. d5 - second phaze imho the second one is the clear winner here compared to the original on blue moon.
  2. could be. i just found the party at goabase (praise them for staying online and keeping the records) and it was just advertised as magnetrixx. but in the reports there is "danke an stefan und heike" so she was there for sure
  3. i remember being at a party (afair there was either magnetrixx or audiomatrixx on the lineup) and there was a woman up there playing at that timeslot. maybe i remember it wrong or they put the wrong alias there on the lineup
  4. nice track. thanks for reminding me of magnetrixx. haven't heard anything from him in a long time. (i just had to check, you're right and i'm wrong in thinking that magnetrixx was a woman )
  5. just what i was thinking. if covid allows for the festival to take place, there no way i'm going to miss it.
  6. you can edit your original post to make it easier for the automatic counting script to function if we will be able to use it. but i have no idea how we could count a label as best release of 2020.
  7. then let's just do it ourselves. we can hope that someone who can automatically evaluate the votes jumps in by the end of april, otherwise we'll have to do it manually.
  8. it's march already and we haven't done anything like this yet? edit: feel free to leave your votes for your top 10 albums of 2020 in this thread. the first entry will receive 10 points, the second 9 points and so on. voting will be possible til the end of april. we will hopefully use a script to automatically evaluate the results so please keep your votes in the following format: Uptempo: 1. Artist Name - Album 2. Artist 2 - Album 2 … Downtempo: 1. Artist Name - Album 2. Artist 2 - Album 2 … ________ i have a pityful amount of new music
  9. actually that patch is pretty nice, esp. with the reverb. but ever since i heard the speedfiaker remix, i find that every version of the tetris theme that doesn't come with heavy, distorted 909 kicks is missing something.
  10. i don't think we'll se a "traditional" inactivated vaccine here any time soon. and if we do it's probably not going to be too effective. the hard part about making an inactivated vacccine is getting the immune system to do much (using all kinds of additives to provoke some reaction) and apparently the technique used by novavax is pretty effective compared to more traditional ones. for the booster for south african or brazilian variants the key is probably for them to be available soon enough (we hear enough reports of new waves in regions that had previously reached herd immunity to the o
  11. vini vici knew how to ride the cheese train back when they were sesto sento and they do still know it as vini vici. brazil and isreal are probably to blame here. (what i really find strange is that they somehow found their way into the lineup of the biggest rock/indie/metal festival here in austria two years ago or so). highlight tribe only got popular again because vini vici remixed their 90s track free tibet. tropical bleyage is just another average dacru artist. do you think they got more recognition than digicult or u-recken?
  12. i try to get any mrna vaccine i can. now with the studies out and millions vaccinated we know they are safe and more effective than the competition. this together with being easier and faster to produce makes them the vaccines of the future. (if anyone's interested why we get mrna vaccines just now this scishow video explains it in simple layman terms.) i acutally declined the bullshit astra zeneca vaccine today. if i can get biontech or moderna in two months i have better protection sooner than if i get astra today (i wonder how astra zeneca even got their study that's riddled with slopp
  13. personally, i got all the usual shots as a child, and i still get every vaccine that's recommended plus all those extra vaccines available for diseases one might encounter when travelling the world. in the past i was often sick but not anymore. this is what having an adult immune system that has already gotten lots of exposure to various germs looks like. if you want to decrease your chances of catching a cold even further, you only have to work in healthcare for a few years. exposure to pathogens (it doesn't matter if by sickness or vaccine) grants immunity. the amount of the additives y
  14. mrna vaccines contain pretty much no additives compared to your usual inactivated vaccine. you only have the mrna itself and the lipids to make up the droplet containing the mrna. typical vaccines contain a whole range of additives to attract immune cells. otherwise you'd get next to no reaction from the body. yep. it's just that we see comparatively many allergic reactions (still a very small number) now, because the people who get allergic reactions are allergic against polyethylene glycol instead of chicken protein. in your daily life you do not notice a PEG allergy, but you do notice
  15. sampling from the back of the throat or the anterior part of the nose detects ca. 90-95% of positive cases compared to ca. 95-97% when taking the sample from the nasopharynx. i really hate taking samples in the throat (and most of the time refuse to do it) because most people just can't put their tounges out of the way. also, you'll inevitably get "brechreiz" (what's the english word for that?) if you scrub and turn the sampling brush around there for the required 5 or so seconds.
  16. that sounds like an excellent idea (one i've also been playing with for a long time). but the great difficulty is finding a suitable place to set up everything.
  17. personally, i use the test kit from abbott (covid-19 ag rapid test device). you can get it online for less than 10€ per test (but it's a kit with 25 tests). it's a little more accurate, cheaper and more practical than the others. (probennahme is eigentlich recht einfach. sobalds geht (ca. nach 0.5 bis 1cm) das staberl nach hinten/unten drehen und richtung ohrlapperl fahren bis man ansteht. am besten den kopf nur ganz leicht nach hinten. falls man den kopf zu wenig nach hinten legt kommt man nicht gut hinein, falls man ihn zu weit nach hinten legt fahrt man den hals runter statt anzustehen, w
  18. i've had that feeling some time ago, but now i see it very differently. the divison is more between the people who are able to use their brain and those who don't. and believe me (i work in a pharmacy and talk to about hundred people every day), those who don't are the great majority. if you're advocating for sensible policies you're not running with the pack (in fact when i spoke out for another lockdown in autumn one week before the lockdown actually came, i was confronted with a lot of hate from many directions). in our situation we have a government that's torn between their own stupidit
  19. if your nuttery just affects youself, you're completely fine to do whatever you want, but if your nuttery puts other people in danger and kills some of them i do draw a line there. your freedom ends where it infringes on other people's freedoms. that's also why i have absolutely no problem advocating for strict lockdowns and selective repoening for vaccinated people as an anarchist. it may seem strange and unintuitive to us at first but the draconian ways in which the crisis is handled in some parts of asia is actually the more liberal policy. note that i'm not saying that china is acting
  20. luciferase has that name because it glows. lucifer is literally the light-bringer. we know that sars-cov-2 cannot have been bioengineered in a lab. it uses previously unknown sequences for known functions. if it were bioengineered it would use known sequences (among many other reasons). a vaccination activates the immune system and in that respect is like a small infection. if you are so sick already that you die from the vaccine you'd definitely die from the disease. do you have any source for face paralysis? bill gates is a rich guy who doesn't know what to do with his money,
  21. damn, the recovery really seems to be dragging on for a long time for some people. just last week at work i had a conversation with people who have been suffering from depression and breathlessness for two months since the infection. one of them even could not even get a full night of sleep since then, despite being put on benzos. lockdowns really are a small price to pay. but still, almost every day i hear people complaining about having to wear masks and thinking vaccines are an evil ploy from the governments.
  22. the one in sri lanka? that lineup can't be real, can it? i mean there's no almost goa trance but otherwise just about every big name i can think of is on there. sounds too good to be true. on the other hand the sankra 2021 in switzerland (if it does take place at all the coming summer) doesn't sound that shabby either.
  23. this is such a shithole country. not because of the extened lockdown, which is definitely necessary, but because nothing works as it should. i am a category 1 person because i do covid tests so i should be among the first group of people to get a vaccine. the vaccination campaign has already started but no one knows how i could make an appointment. the official hotline says to call another hotline. the other hotline doesn't work at all, so i call the next day. then they say they cannot do anything because i'm under 80 years old. the next official info point says they have no idea and aren't r
