Sounds unlikely Oli, but I'm prepared to be corrected. What's your measure of "largest"?

I had to look... trackitdown seem to have come from nowhere since August... what's the story? Do they advertise or is it word-of-mouth? I have to admit this is the first mention of them I've seen.

One of the main guys behind trackitdown.net is Ed Real who was the A&R for Nukleuz Records, which itself was pretty much the biggest hard dance label in the UK for about 6 years (think it's just folded though...)
So it's got credentials, and they seem to have a lot of the big labels of dance on there.

I think their proposal is much more directed at DJs than the 'consumer', and is a pretty compelling one - download a track, stick it on CD and play it out that evening, all for about a quarter of the price of a slice of vinyl.

I'll be sad to see vinyl go, but that's what it's looking like, at least for the smaller dance labels.

Vic, I happened to click on your link for some unknown reason and my immediate thought was "why are none of the images clickable links?".

Tip: Don't waste any opportunity on your site to make something clickable, as there is nothing worse for visitors, and the moment you scroll down the page on your site, you lose sight of the three yellow button links at the top right (well, on my screen you do).

Just my initial impressions.

Lol, Logic ST24 came with the soundcard (STA C-Port)-- I was puzzled as to what it was as well, and it didn't come up with anything on Google, but it seems to look the same as logic... I'd love to hear from anyone else that uses it - so far I can't find anyone else on this forum has it...

Mac OSX free HTML - http://www.tacosw.com/

TextEdit also does some basic stuff.

Word does convert docs to HTML but it makes very big and rough pages. Editing its HTML is a nightmare. Avoid.

I use BBEdit. Highly recommended but costs...

I hate virginity. Well, unless its a brunette, slim, 18 years old, on a beach.......... :smirk: :tongue:

Sorry, seeme to have drifted off for a bit there. Anyway;

Deluxe Records

We've only just started operating but we're not holding back. I'm not going to say anything like "the best dance record label" because to be quite honest, we're not. Ministry probably are. But, anyway that's a different topic. We're just doing our thang.

Blimey!

Some really good sites out there.

just started revamping mine (made it myself)....

The World of Mistrust

At the moment it's got a long way to go - nowhere near finished - tweaking it forever more. I'm adding more stuff all the time.

Hi, I like your site Mistrust, good simple uncluttered design, though i would have preferred a bit more content. Was that really Midge Ure in your photo gallery or am i being thick and missing the point? if the real man you should be making more of it - don't be modest!
