AM/FM 110 is out now: www.clr.net/amfm
This week´s AMFM is the second hour of my five hours set that I played at The Block in Tel Aviv on March 30th. I had never been to this club before, but heard many good things about it, especially about the owner´s passion about the sound system. Actually part of the reason why I had never played there before was, that the club had an installed special mixer, that every DJ had to use. At that time I was using the XONE 92 from ALLEN & HEATH and since I view my setup as some kind of instrument in which the mixer is a vital component, playing on a different type of mixer was always out of the question for me. That changed with the PLAYdifferently Model 1 Mixer, as this is now the only other mixer that the owner of Block would allow to be used on his sound system. You just gotta love such passionate people. There are quite a few club owners out there who are proud of their sound systems, but rarely all the talk really lives up to the reality (ok, I admit, I am very picky with sound systems). Not so in Tel Aviv, the sound in the whole club, not only on the main dance floor, was really amazing. But more important for me (selfish DJ that I am), the monitor system in the booth was one of the most detailed and crisp sounding one I have ever played on. And I have played on a few. Did I mention that not only the sound system at Block is one of its kind, also the design of the club… and what’s even more important, the whole crew is super nice too. Consequently the DJing is a lot more fun and you can go a lot deeper into sound, which made me end up playing for 5h. And that was a great ride. I wanna thank you all in Tel Aviv again for that great night. I hope you enjoy the recording. Comments are always welcome!
