Electroclash pioneer Larry Tee has completely stopped using vinyl after spotting mainstream houses DJs doing the same, he told Skrufff this week.
I recently did a gig in
I still love a good seamless mix, though I feel you have to play at least one record a set that doesnt conform to the tempo or texture of the rest of the set, Larry continued.
Larry Levan used to always throw in a fast B-52s record or a downtempo R&B rumpshaker to shake things up a bit during his marathons at the Paradise Garage, he recalled,.in that spirit, I must admit I like banging in the odd surprise every now and then.
As well as embracing CD mixing, Larry said hes also recently starting using effects boxes, loops and samples in his sets, admitting I am late on the filters but I am definitely making up for lost time. I must say, a set without effects sounds a little naked to my ears these days, he added.
