Numbers has been fun, and maybe not done yet.
But, beer is open and feels like a Friday, so some rambles.
If you guys see something, maybe on here and you go to have a listen, where you going to?
For me it's mainly been YouTube but am aware there are other means - enlighten me!

It is easy. Obviously there is plenty of "official" stuff on there, but I like it when there's just a picture or similar and someone has just just uploaded as they liked it.
Note to self is to sort out a PC, digitise, and and upload some that I couldn't find.

Have also read quite a lot of the comments. Seems a load of people also re-discovering tunes during lockdown.

Apple Music for streaming, Beatport and JunoDownload for buying tracks that are not on streaming, Discogs for those not found in any digital sources :)

Now, just need to digitise dj set mixtapes in my collection so I can listen to them again ;)

I use Juno as UK based.

Beatport have a sneakier sales model so I avoid like the plague.

Traxsource are arguably more suited to my housier leanings, but I'm not sending my money to the US when I can buy same price in UK.

If you could only play a set list of 10, what would you pick?
I’m away to have a beer and stick the headphones on, try and come up with mine 😎

For Trance, I think if I was just sitting listening then probably.

1. Airwave - Alone in The Dark
2. Re:Locate - Waterfall
3. CERN - The Message (Northern Mix)
4. George Hales - Autumn Falls (Original Mix)
5. Black Pearl - Java (Kim Svard Remix)
6. Savon - One Million Strings (Andy Jay Powel Remix)
7. Marksun & Brian - Gran Rey (Ronski Speed Remix)
8. Kaste - Desert Eagle
9. Night Sky - Endorphine (Original Mix)
10. Escade - Shuffle Royale (Alphazone Remix)

I might be cheeky and sneak an 11 in. RAM - RAMsterdam (Jorn Van Deynhoven Remix), it just narrowly missed out but the breakdown and the piano, as simplistic as it is, is just so soulful and powerful.

It could change a little but these would be my go to.

You will notice a theme of big anthemic breakdowns in most, I am a massive fan of tracks that are layered intricately and well, using multiple synths and pads to create melodies that sit on top of melodies (one reason I love Re;Locate - Waterfall, if you really listen you hear 3 or 4 elements of the tune in the first 5 or 6 minutes, all individually, then he starts to layer them and you get all of the elements by around 7 minutes).

For mixing, I'd have to think about that one.

Thanks for the steers on streaming etc., and I'll have a nosey at those anthems also.
Not sure how, but the list grew : Letter A revisited. Can ignore the first couple as memory lane oldies :)
Arthur Baker-Breaker's Revenge / Aleem - Release Yourself (Dub)
Armando - 151
Then we have those masked (topcial!) crazies, Altern-8 starting with the full on masked hysteria album
Altern-8 : 8’s revenge | Infiltrate 202 | A D-8 with Plezure | Shame 92
Astro – Strings (Aint What They Used To Be)
Axel F – Keep Pushin (Clock Ten To Two Mix)
Amii Stewart – Don’t Stop (Dope Work)
Alantic Ocean – Waterfall (Ritmo Rivals Remix)
Aphex Twin – Digeridoo [pitched down a bit, sorry Grieg!]

Enjoy your beers etc.

Feel that often when posting on this thread I am coming across dis-organised :) (oh well if the cap fits! - am sure there must be mitigating circumstances). Anyway question for @GreiginFife - what stylus was that with in the picture the nice silver SLs?
In the box I haven't yet located, I am sure I have some Ortofon ones from before giving the Stanton ones a try.
If I ever sort the kit out for digitising I may treat myself to some new ones, so happy to hear thoughts.

P.S. hope you managed to sort your supply issue (decking)

It was an Ortofon Concorde DJ S cart & stylus.

From my point of view this thread was great in distracting from the "lock down", and I was hoping when we'd passed through we might be at golf re-starting time. Seems like it is still up in the air though.
Thanks to everyone who has participated (y)

So, B re-visited from me: (couldn't let Mr Ford not have a mention)
Baby Ford – Wigan
Bizzare Inc – Technological
B.O.D. - No More Mind Games
Bera - June Project (wave envelope mix)
Billabong – House Forever (two face mix)
Bump - House Stompin'
Billy Ray Martin – Your Loving Arms (Diss-Cuss Vocal)
Boomshanka - Take My Love

It hasn't, Im in the same boat!

Transitioning out of Higher State into Bicep's Glue has been the musical highlight of my lockdown so far. Even the cat looked impressed!
I've listened to Bicep's Glue a few times now, and it as really grown on me (y)
