    Excellent location! Get in touch, we will do it up. Toronto is AMAZING in the warmer months/summer.
    I heard about Toronto in the summer. Isn't there a West Indian parade held annually in T.O?

  • bassiebassie 11,710 Posts
    Yes, biggest one outside the islands. Last weekend in July.
    http://caribana.com/schedule.html

    It is not what it used to be but worth seeing for sure.

    Plenty of smaller festivals and, generally, clubs with the same flavour all over the city, too.

    Place: Copenhagen, DK

    How old is you? 36

    How did you get here? Random googling for something I don't remember led me to the mixes section 2003-2004ish. Lots of good mixes by Otis_Funkmeyer, Iron_Monkey etc. That led me to other parts of the site like the reviews (much respect to Motown67) and ISH. Didn't get around to checking the forums until sometime later.

    Sentimental Records: Kraftwerk "Electric Cafe". First record I ever bought with my own money.

    Places you DIG: Me nostrils.

    Other interests: Programming, especially game and audio programming.

    Rank: Capit??o de mar e guerra

    Yes...that's the festival. Might need to clear my schedule for that.

  • bassiebassie 11,710 Posts
    If possible, come for the week or week and a half before the actual weekend. A whole bunch of stuff goes on leading up the parade.

    Place: San Diego

    Age: 34

    How did you get here?: Heard a latin funk/soul/rock radio show driving through Berkeley on the way to Mendocino. Small San Diego mind=blown. Ask some fellow nerds where I can find more info and someone says SoulStrut. Instantly hooked due to previously unrealized cross-genre appreciation kinship. Also, I kept running into (getting over-run by) mylatency at every record anything within 20 miles of me.

    Places you DIG: Garage sales and Craigslist. San Diego Record Show. Family/friends on the hunt for me.

    Sentimental Records: James Brown - Gettin Down to it (multiple songs from this were played at my wedding). Joe Bataan - Most (St. Latin's Day Massacre maybe?).

    Other interests: Fine woodworking, vehicles of all kinds especially motorcycles and scooters, vintage hi-fi gear, table tennis, succulent pruning/cultivating, food, haircuts, off-roading, craft beer, vintage cocktails, whiskey/tequila in general, tools, bicycles, good TV, zenning, sailing, face to face commerce, dog parks, socializin, not socializin, and anything you're really excited about that's new to me. I'll never master anything, but can speak knowledgeably about most things.

    Rank: 37, thread-killer, better in person, not as little-dude as you might expect but couldn't hang with full-timers.

    How did you get here? probably via the breaks forum (which i found by accident somehow in '02)

    Sentimental Records: soft spot for 45s in abc/dunhill sleeves, due to childhood memory. and anything with old 60s and 70s upstate NY chain store stickers on the shrink, like two guys, twin fair, Big N...

    Places you DIG: i have some good friends who clean out houses and estates etc, theyve hipped me to most of my finds these past 5-7 years. currently going thru a bizarre collection that came out of a hoarders trailer home, it takes up 12 whole pallets of records stacked 6' high each. i also like shopping at jonnys in NYC.

    Name: Kyle

    Place: Toronto

    Age: 31 next month.

    How did you get here?: I think I found this place after spending a bit of time on the dj shadow mailing list waaay back in 1999-2000. My family got a new 486 computer and I spent a lot of time staying up late trying to make beats and stuff with a tracker program called Buzz. I was sharing my (shitty) music online really early - back in the days of mp3.com. Being a bit of a Shadow fanboy, I was on the Influx mailing list, and got involved in a few of the mix-off happening. People swapping samples and creating tracks out of them. I remember John Book from those mix-offs, so he may have mentioned it... or I might have just stumbled on it trolling the interwebs for pr0n. Either way I've been a full time lurker and on-and-off poster for more than a decade.

    Sentimental Records: Endtroducing. It's corny, but it was the album that made me look at music differently. It was music without instruments. But in terms of actual vinyl I have owned/found? I am a little dude when it comes to rekkids so I don't have like some unicorn records I finally found in a dollar bin or shit like that. But... It sounds weird... MFSB - Philadelphia Freedom. It was a record I remember my Dad having, and playing with when I was younger. I forgot about it until years later when I bought it and listened to it. At the time it was weird trying to imagine my Dad as a teenager listening to it, because me and my Dad weren't really close growing up. It was hard to think of him as a person and not just "dad".
    (read: I have daddy issues and my collection sucks ha!)

    Places you DIG: I haven't really bought records in a while. But there are a lot of good stores around Toronto. My pedigree of diggeur is so low though that it affords me the ability to go through even the most tepid of crates and still find things I am stoked about. So I can pretty much shop for records anywhere lol

    Other interests: I just bought a Maschine Mikro and am getting back into banging out some beats here and there. It is extremely satisfying. I have set a goal to have an album of stuff done by the end of the summer. Do albums happen anymore? Anyways I don't care I'm just having fun. lol

    I just joined here and the first thing I thought of was to check for old In/Flux members. Hi! I was on there for a while. Was part of the mixoffs too   I know this post was from way back, but thought i'd bump it.

    Also yeah Hi. I'm Alland. Originally from LA, then SF, now living in Berlin. Retired DJ of 20 years (house and techno), still producing (house and brokenbeat and whatever TF i want since i'm old and don't need gigs now haha). I like long walks down the beach, handing out middle fingers like scantrons on test day, and pizza. 

    If you're interested in my new musics, http://fullbleedsound.com has a bandcamp and all the social medias and whatnots. 

    Just jumping on here to develop and commit further to my nerdery.
