Who here still own cassettes and listen to them regularly? I had some when I was younger but obviously as technology got better and as my dad got computers and the alike, I stopped using cassettes. I recently reacquired two cassette decks (one which needs some replacing but otherwise good condition). I also found some sealed and packaged blank tapes from back then. I've been recording some albums on them, curious to see how they sound. Whoever said that cassettes are terrible has obviously never had good ones. While obviously FLAC is hard to beat, these cassettes sound pretty good and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the two unless I had them side by side. I've watched some videos, and one thing it has made me learn is to appreciate the amount of work that was done with these older media formats. I'm now doing some research on the best way to setup a hifi sound system for my room. What are your stories about cassettes? Were you ever in them? Do you miss them? Did you ever like them? Really interested to read stuff from the older guys.
On Saturday, July 14th, Earwall Productions and friends are proud to present a special night of retrodelica! Goa trance has a wild and wooly history, stretching over multiple decades and incorporating many different substyles. For one evening, our DJs will take you on a whirlwind tour of its past; hearkening back to a more psychedelic time, we invoke the tribal rhythms, colorful melodies and tripped out sounds of yesteryear. Come make some new memories with us. Schedule: 7-8 PM: Groove coalescence; downtempo and ambient trance 8-10 PM Earwall (Earwall Productions) 80s Goa, Proto-Trance, Acid A goa fan since the mid-nineties, Earwall has spent the last year digging ever deeper into the roots of the scene, back to the days of the analog cassette tape and the re-purposing of electronic pop for early trance dance. Now, he shares his interpretation of the old school Goa vibe, 1984-89. 10PM-12AM Steve Eagle (Heavy Industries) Trance Techno, Psytrance, Goa First exposed to trance in 1994, Steve Eagle has since lent his touch to many different styles of dance music, from progressive psytrance to industrial techno. Whatever the music genre, his smooth, yet aggressive and powerful style always comes through. Expect a blend of goa and classic trance, from a master weaver. 12-2AM Barakuda (Psytribe) Psytrance, Goa As the founder of L.A.'s longest running psytrance collective, Barakuda needs little introduction. For this event, he's digging through the crates in order to bring us a history lesson in 90s goa. We are honored to present a full power midnight mix from this psychedelic veteran; get old-schooled!
