FTA MUSIC: From The Annex #63 with the Librarian [3.5 hours of Ragga Jungle]

Last night was special. Three and a half hours of ragga jungle. Not only that but I did my best to wear 3 different DJ hats. The opener, the middle man and the closer.

Tracks 01-19: The Opener is slower (83bpm), dubby, older classics and experimental.
Tracks 20-38: The Middle Man bringing up the tempo and starting to play a wider variety of tunes
Tracks 39-55: The Closer upbeat temp & drive, heavier bassline, pulling out the heavyweights




I got inspired by an old friend of mine DJ B-Funk how tweeted recently.


 "Creating an opener set is one of the most rewarding and crucial skills a dj can do. Did you know many “bangers” from 3-5 years ago are now acceptable for an opening set? It’s true! They don’t always carry the same energy they used to." - @djbfunk

I totally feel this is one of these "more you know moments".  ba ha. But I could not agree more. Those older classics might just be the perfect thing for your crowd. Or maybe it's full of old heads that want to hear something out there and new that's, not main time. Skylarking by London Elektricity comes to mind.

Each one of these timeslots has different responsibilities, that change depending on your crowd. On that note much love and respect to the Jungle / Drum & Bass community on Twitch. It's always a treat to have you all in the chat, for your comments, questions, and fanfare. Thank you.

As for the rest of you, if you don't know about the DnB community on the Twitch platform check out the  DnB Discord for a crash course. From The Annex also is spinning up a Discord server [HERE].

Big ups to the producers, DJs, and labels that make the music that I love. Without your creative output the world would be a less exciting place. Respect

DIY Reuse DJ Set Up: Record Bin

Just after leaving my dad at the airport he noted: 

"Hey don't buy anything or make any big decisions till 48 hours after you have landed back in the states. Jet lag can do a real number on you."



With this in mind let me tell you how I converted an old DJ coffin into a new record bin. HA!


Here is the coffin in my studio. It was mainly there so I could put synths and noisemakers in my production. However, I'm building a better place for all that to happen in. Thus I have this coffin that is a real pain when I have my record cases on it. So in my jet-lagged brain, I said "I GOT THIS!" and measured out how much room space I had.

3 rows! that's great. I originally thought I would cut and pull out all carpet but that was a pain so I just grabbed the circular saw and went at it.


THANK JAH! I did not clog up my saw with all that carpeting. It actually was pretty smooth sailing to be transparent. All those years of freestyling with a saw on skate ramps paid off.


With my cuts made it became clear the middle strips were not load-bearing. So supports were fashioned as you can see below.


Here is where I have to apologize for the Julia Childs's move, I'm about to pull. TADA! Here is the finished product. What you missed was a week of sourcing old yoga mats, spray paint and a few support nails.


Since the build was completed I have to say I'm pleased as punch with the results. I've been looking at DIY plans for record bins for years. Time and money always kept me from pulling the trigger. This, on the other hand, was a free, and quick build.


So if you have an old DJ coffin floating around in your basement taking up space and you are in need of a record bin. I hope this gives you some ideas.

As always I'm the Librarian and keep smiling kids. I will catch you on the flip.

FTA ALERT: Jungle / Drum & Bass Vinyl for sale in the DMV

... and it looks MINTY!!!!

every once in a while a DJ or an old head puts up their collection. In this case its a hell of a collection for DNB fans.

From the Craigslist ad:

Over 200 LP/EP from 1997 to 2003, the bulk of which is most likely 1999-2001. Also have a crate of 100+ singles and promos and such from the same time-frame.

It's largely Drum n' Bass, but there is some old jungle, dub, and other randomness. Lots of Bad Company, Total Science, Dillinga and stuff from RAM, Renegade Hardware, Virus, etc. All played at least a few times, but all in very good shape. They've always been cared for and kept shelved/climate controlled when not on the decks. I'm selling the lot, not singles.

Asking price $1100

Which is to rich for my reserves at the moment (baby, live stream and a trip to Scotland in my future). However, lets break it down for a second, roughly that is the price of 100+ new records and your getting some ULTRA classics with no discogs hassle or shipping fees. If you have the funds DO IT ALREADY! Its killing me I get daily alerts from CL that their are Jungle/DnB records for sale in the DMV, stop my pain.

By now someone is asking where the link is. Here you go heads.

FTA MUSIC: Inaugural Twitch Thursday Night Monthly Mix

Let's get back into the saddle.

Watch From the Annex w/ The Librarian. Jungle / Drum & Bass from fromtheannex on www.twitch.tv
Well after 9 months for forced DJing/Production vacation due to studio rebuilding... WE ARE BACK BABY! I feel like I almost should revive the Rusty Junglist show but I found my strade around an hour into the show. HA. Give me a break here I'm juggling video, audio, and social media all at the same time.

It gives me amazing respect to Lion Dub, London Eleckricity, A1-VooDoo, & Sensenet who make it all look effortless.

I seem to have escaped the copyright police with my obscure taste in Ragga Jungle / Jump up. Snickering now watch next show will be littered with copyright mutes. To this end, we will be posting the show also on MixCloud. I would have posted this one already but I need to make anew MixCloud graphic.

FTA NEWS: 2018 is over. Here comes 2019!

BACK STORY in 2018:

The Studio is back on line (9 months later). 32 gallons of sewage. A cracked pipe. Holes cut in my foundation.... yea it sucked.

We pulled our support for the Facebook platform. You can still find us on twitter, youtube, mixcloud and now Twitch. Video is not fully new here for From The Annex but fully interactive video streaming is both exciting and daunting. With that noted, as we venture on to this field we have already been greeted by a flourishing, supportive DJ community. 



What can you expect from From The Annex in 2019?

SHORT TERM GOALS:

- Weekly Twitch video streaming. Encoding the Annex with The Librarian.
- Weekly Blog posting about the Encoding the Annex project.

- Monthly Twitch video streaming. From The Annex with The Librarian.
- Monthly Mixcloud/iTunes/RSS audio stream.
- Bi-Monthly Spotlight on DJs/Producers in the DMV.

LONG TERM GOALS:
- HAVE FUN!
- Continue to build our physical and virtual communities.
- Bring good music to the community and expose them to music they may not have heard of before.
- Bring a partner on board to help spice up the content and play some other music.
- Bring Social Lubrication back as a monthly podcast. 
 

- Redesign our website.
- Break even by 2021. Become self-sustaining by 2022.

Easy enough right. HA! No. But let me tell you how much I have missed making music for you all.


SUMMARY:


Archive Encoding:
Monday 8pm-12am EST [TWITCH]:


- Music appreciation. Music archeology. Music encoding technics. My history with that music.
- Accompanying blog post issues by Wednesday of that week. Detailing the adventures highlights.


From The Annex with The Librarian: First Thursday of every month 8pm-12am EST [TWITCH]:
- Musical throw-down. A mix of what I've been encoding, with new releases and demos that have been sent in. We will be playing the music that makes people shake their ass.
- Accompanying blog post and mixcloud/itunes/rss stream added the following day.

Spotlight: Bi Monthly
- Continuing to turn the spotlight on the local community of DJs and Producers in the DMV


Thats From The Annex in a nut shell. Lets see what 2019 has to offer.


With that Keep Smiling!
