Welcome to Electronic Beatnik

Electronic Beatnik – I’m a throwback to the beatniks of 1950s America. The Beat Generation were a series of poets and authors who surfed society, writing about their adventures. My beatnikking will take you on a heady journey through the paths of Electronic Dance Music from its origins to the cutting edge of sounds today.

D:Ream – All Things To All Men (Wez G Journeyman Remix)

FREE REMIX AVAILABLE HERE: http://soundcloud.com/wezg/d-ream-all-things-to-all-men D:Ream are one of my favourite alltime bands so I loved doing the remix… The Sasha Remix of D:Ream – U R The Best Thing is in my top ten tracks and I believe was a high point of Sasha’s early career so I understand how important doing a remix for D:Ream can be. There was a lot of material to work with here. This is an epic version but the original mix of this song is over 9 minutes in length. I was advised to trim my version down but couldn’t bring myself to make any cuts. In the days of non-smoking clubs – it’s an ideal track for a DJ to slam on if he wants a quick ciggie… Original Radio Edit video of All Things To All Men can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGQTd2DiHMs Remixed by Wez G @ Shuffle Studios, Caldicot http://djwezg.com This was originally for a competition and I have Al MacKenzie from D:Ream’s permission to redistribute it as a free release – If you’d prefer a copy in wav format http://soundcloud.com/wezg/promo-d-ream Your feedback would be much appreciated.

Last.fm

#

Last.fm I’m going to have a whinge here about the general lack of support the dance music industry seems to give this amazing site… Last.fm has been around for quite a few years… It is the most amazing site for people who listen to music and also for artists. We’ve witnessed the rise of Spotify, Soundcloud, Reverbnation, Podomatic, Mixcloud, Play.fm and many other music sites in recent years. Last.fm has been ticking along all the time while this has been going on.  It is the most amazing site for discovering new music. It has an excellent tagging system and when you download the scrobbler which supports a lot of players, you can keep a record of your own listening history.  It keeps stats and wiki info on artists that you simply won’t get anywhere else. It is fully interactive with a social network dimension where you meet genuine friends based on music tastes. There is a journal system and groups. It is an amazing site for artists which, even if you don’t scrobble particularly well – with decent journals and links you will ping around search engines across the world.  As a music listener and artist’s resource it is second to none. It is mainly free though you can subscribe to some additional features for a nominal monthly sum. It is also app friendly with its own radio app. The radio feature is the highlight and I’ll leave that to non-users as a surprise – but this is where you discover the site’s database’s true power and make new music discoveries. I fully endorse last.fm and I just cannot comprehend why more people don’t use it. (The above link is to my user account which you get yourself on signup )

With the app being launched yesterday I thought I’d shed some light on why this 4 part ‘Desperate Houseflies’ documentary is included in the video section. Well – I’m jointpop’s manager. They are part of the http://shuffleartistmanagement.com project. It’s not all house music with Wez G and jointpop and I sort of fell into each other’s hands. I dig a bit of Rock n Roll with The Doors being my favourite alltime band… Anyway – jointpop is all about Rock, Trini style… There is something magical about this band…. Just check out their stuff – support them – get some albums on itunes or amazon, whatever….   This 4 part video is well worth watching if you are into music of any genre… Just watch it… The Caribbean atmosphere, the adventure of recording an album… the Rock n Roll feeling encapsulated by the band interacting on their sonic journey… This video shows why I want to be involved with jointpop. They are dedicated to music, their cause. They have a passion about music that only serious artists truly understand.  Watch and Enjoy! (Source: http://www.youtube.com/)

Wez G DJ Tips – Number 1 – TIMING I have been DJing in clubs since 1995 and have a wealth of experience. Shuffle have taught DJing professionally with the Shuffle DJ Academy…  As part of this tumblr microblog I want to share some professional DJ Tips… So here we go… Number 1: TIMING A lot of people don’t realise just how essential timing is to DJing. Timing may confuse a few… Timing doesn’t refer to beatmatching the pitch of two records. I’ll deal with that separately. Timing refers in this to ‘cue points’ and when to ‘drop a record’. I say ‘record’ – It could refer to CD or digital – the same applies to whatever your preferred format is. A good DJ needs to have a feel for music, for the right time to make that transition between two tunes. It is the absolute art of DJing, blending or mixing music to give continuity to the dancefloor or home listener. A key point for this transition is when to begin it and when to end it. This is what timing refers to. You’ve seen vinyl DJs moving the record back and forth on the cue point (usually starting beat) and then proceeding to drop the record. This isn’t for show. For every pair of well-selected records there are only a few places where a good transition is possible and normally there is but one unique ‘sweet spot’ a precise moment in time, a microsecond in the duration of the set, where the mix will be perfect. this is what I mean by timing and how essential it is.    It does help if the beats and tempo are matching up – synched for a better word… But believe it or not this isn’t as fundamentally important as timing. Without tempo synchronisation the mix will drift and you may end up with that horrid train wreck effect but the mix will sound right to a certain extent. A well-timed mix with poor beatmatching is actually sonically preferable to a poorly timed mix with synched beats. How do I choose the ‘sweet spot’? Well technically there is no absolute science to this and it is perhaps one of the biggest parts of ‘fun’ for a DJ when he is in the mix… Have I hit the mix properly? Is it going to sound great? You need to have a basic…

Shuffle Artist Management expands its roster

Shuffle Artist Management has expanded its roster of artists. In addition to managing Wez G, Houston-based dance vocalist, Tricia Lee Kelshall and Trinidadian rock n’ rollers jointpop, have been on the books for a while. We are now pleased to welcome aboard a pair of talented up and coming producers from the Balkans. Uusikartano is a tech house / techno DJ/Producer from Kumrovec in Croatia, currently signed to Be-Nice Records, Los Angeles, USA. Toris Badic is a techno DJ/Producer from Belgrade in Serbia, regularly releasing on multiple European labels. I think that this pair will be great to work with and offer a slightly different range of genres to what we currently have available. Websites etc are in the process of being built and the whole Shuffle Artist Management shopfront will also be getting a new look refurb… In the meanwhile you can check the sounds of Uusikartano and Toris Badic on their soundcloud accounts. http://soundcloud.com/uusikartano
