So what is live you might ask? Well, the short answer is that its our solution to one of our biggest problems. You see, the problem with writing reviews of events in this town is that its one way media. You guys can’t get involved. We write a review of an event and you werent there, then there isn’t really much to be done except hope to go next year. live is our solution to that. live is our photo/video live blog. We’re going to be bringing you LIVE photos from all of the biggest events in St Andrews from now on.

But how can you see it though? Well, we have a solution for that as well. We’re on posterous, tumblr, twitter and facebook. So choose your favorite microblogging/social networking service and tune in!

First up: Major Blazer.

See you guys there!

To see live, head to here, or here, or here here, or here

I always try to be quite picky with the things that I write about on Frankly, most of the stuff I play in my sets wouldn’t make the cut onto this site, but this is my set-wetdream (setdream?). Anyway, this is a live mix done by VENT at Breakspool 2009. Note that absolutely amazing mixing powerhouse on decks – then appreciate. One of the things that I think gets lost in a lot of beat-matching is subtlety. Sure someone can beat-match ; frankly, in the 21st century, its about as hard as spending £150 on a computer program and spending an hour analyzing all your tracks. The true art in beat matching comes from subtlety: not just matching the beat, but vibe and melody as well. This is something that you can really hear in VENT’s mix. He only mixes another song in when he thinks it would benefit the song. Well done, sir

Finally, one thing I hate about this is the fact that BBC Radio 1 threw their illigit stamp on it half way through. Come on guys, have some advertising decency. Anyways, here it is:

This kid never ceases to amaze. After leaving KanYe to pursue a carreer on his own, DJ A-Trak has come out with gem after gem. His most recent is this epic LIVE remix of Daft Punk’s Robot.

He’s got some upcoming tour dates, so if you’re in town, check that shit. Sad St. Andrews isn’t on there.
