Luuurve King Unique. I'm seeing them a couple of times in the next two weeks - they're playing in Birmingham with Infusion on the 10th September, which should be a fun evening!

You're guaranteed an awesome night with King Unique - I've been saying for years that Australia would go nuts for their live sets, and I'm bound to be proved right soon. You're all gonna shit yourselves!

They're doing more online broadcasts at the moment. Check www.kingunique.com/news.html

At the risk of being flamed terribly, I look at the tracklist and it looks like a jumble to me - pretty well random (esp the 2004 EM). Now, other outfitys such as 2manyDJs also haved this sort of approach, and it leaves me cold. I get no flow from listengin. I have not heard King Unique so am operating only on tracklistings here.

I know 2manyDJs are popular, but my view has been that its for those people with a very small attention span and that their sets are disjointed.

Any comments about King Unique in light of my comments.

All flames accepted.

i think sets like that sound very different live compared to listening at home.

express 2 and tiefschwarz are the same, they really cover heaps of ground in terms of styles but yet it sounds awesome live at the club or party.

Don't mean to be offensive or anything, but that's a spectacularly dumb post: "I don't like this mix because the tracklisting makes it look like it would sound disjointed, even though I haven't listened to it."

Have a listen to it first, dude! The tracks that look like they'd be totally out of place in the tracklist often only have tiny elements used in the mix, rather than entire tunes, and the whole point of this thread in the first place was to say how impressive it is that King Unique combine so many different kinds of music into one smooth set.

Looking at the listing, it looks as i described. I never said it sounded jumbled - i never said i don't like it...i was open on this point (and maybe you have misunderstood this). I did make a comparison to sets i have heard by other artists (2manyDJs) that I have not liked.

Coupled with the only positive comments about it (and sorry for raining on your parade), made me wonder what it is about the set that supposedly works so well.

It is not novel to use lots of elements within sets. But frequently, in my opinion, such sets don't cohere well. Providing information as to why KU do it sucessfully would have seemed to me to be a worthwhile point of discussion. Thus far i have gleaned that 'it just does".

There are so many tracks and sets that are called brilliant in these forums which IMO are not. I wanted to get further elaboration so i did not waste my time gettiing a hold of it.

You are forgiven for not being excellent.

Sorry dude, wasn't trying to be nasty.... was just pointing out that you should have a listen. I agree the listings look like they'd sound shit, but the point of the thread is that they don't. That link I posted's got four of their recent mixes. Give 'em a listen, then we can carry on the discussion.

Quick explanation is that they use their computer and FX guff to drop tiny elements of certain tunes in, so while they look totally out of place in the listing, they're hardly used at all, so you get a little bit of Tangerine Dream with the tinkly keys from Frankie Knuckles over the top, then the whole of another tune coming into that, and they're all in key together, so you wouldn't even notice it was three tracks normally. It's very cool. Also, they started out being very proggy in their DJing, whereas 2 Many DJs mix like wedding DJs, jumping from one sound to another to get a reaction King Unique blend it all together really smoothly. Go grab! (especially Broadcast 2)

2 Million Suns is shit, up there with Ballroom as the most lacklustre song on Bedrock.

Feniksas on the other hand ROCKS! Deep chugging bassline and some fantastic melodies.

I can see Hernan caning the absolute shit out of it.
