When he approached me about producing a track for my label, I was more than happy to send him to Ron's and had no doubts about what he would produce. I remember him turning up at the shop to play me 'Damage', it was everything and more than I expected, a great mix of Rare Groove beats, Hip Hop scratch style and wicked Rave Riffs, a combination that the DJs loved and another hit for Basement.
The 'Metrix Remix' was more dark and rave'e but still had a hip hop flavour and used to rip up the dance when played out. The original mix was produced at Martins own studio. A brilliant Debut from a fantastic producer, a wonderful talented guy and long term friend. Reply Notify me 12 Helpful. They didn't actually put Metrix Remix on the repressing, it's Signal Generator, which is rubbish.
Metrix Remix is easily one of the best tunes to ever come out on Basement, but highly underplayed. Extended Warranty. Low Prices Guaranteed. Skip to the end of the images gallery.

A lot of carts have some unique abilities but the Titan i has something which is like a hit in the face in the very first second: It opens a room between the speakers in a way which is ver hard to describe, so deep, so wide, in a way, the listeners looks into the recording session when you listen to older records which were done with a few microphones.
The Titan i has an uncanny ability to illuminate subtle dynamic information. The opening section is among the most amazing ones ever recorded, the image clarity, full-range harmonic expansion, and tonal purity are unique.
Overall dynamics were unrestrained, easily reproducing the natural, and often elusive details of a live performance. I can confidently report that the turntable presents a fulfilled and vivid sonic image that sounds like music. A combination of balance, stability, and neutrality allows the music to flow with what you might call an effortless grace. The first qualities you notice are the extremely wide-reaching dynamics and dead silent background.
But aside from its high resolution, the Titan i had among the fastest, cleanest transient response of any cartridge I've heard at any price. Metal sounds like metal, yet there was nothing intrinsically bright about the Titan's sound, which was full-bodied, deep, extremely well defined, and as fast on bottom as on top.
The midrange was full but not excessively so, resulting in superbly coherent transient and harmonic performance from top to bottom. The Titan i had the slam and fullness preferred by moving-magnet devotees, but with the resolution and speed of a top moving-coil. The cartridge produces a stability of the instruments within the soundstage, as well as an independently stable soundstage itself. This affords the music the ability to exist even in a small listeners room.
The Titan i is a Titan with an improved suspension system that offers better balance between tracking performance and frequency control. A very expensive part of the Titan is the solid machined titanium body, the advantage of this design was better energy transfer from the cantilever to the body to the arm. Usually, vibrational energy reflects back down to the stylus tip.
The result was said to be better pitch definition and purer-sounding transients. The design also allowed the body to be easily removed after the cartridge was installed, resulting in freedom from body-cavity—induced resonances. Lyra is different from most other brand, they try to do a more radical approach when it is time to make a new design Lack of resonance in the cartridge body.
But it is not a design for everyone. On the contrary, a home record player user might decide to sacrifice a couple of desirable features to find a more affordable cartridge. Wrong Mount Type: It is crucial that you know what type of cartridge mount your record player has.
Weak Stylus: The stylus also known as the needle is what touches the record to create the audio signal. Depending on how you intend to use the cartridge, you may need a stylus made with an extremely durable material like a diamond. After all, they can easily be seen by the average consumer as nothing more than a needle to touch the record.
This product is best described as an update of the best-selling OM Series of Moving Magnet cartridges. The 2M Red features split pole pins which enable it have a flat frequency response like a moving coil cartridge. This means you can expect to have a punchy, clear and detailed sound. The enhanced engine gives an improved output of 5. It is outfitted with an elliptical diamond stylus with a narrower radius. This tracks modulations in the groove more accurately and therefore extracts detailed musical information.
It is also optimized for easy mounting, with the size and weight fit for almost every current turntable. You can get even more value for your money with an easy upgrade to the blue with a pretty simple stylus change. It sports a cantilever made of unique Type II low-mass thin-wall aluminum alloy, which ensures a highly precise tracking ability. For difficult playing conditions, the M97xE has an exclusive viscous-damped Dynamic Stabilizer. This helps it to maintain a uniform distance between the cartridge and the record.
This system prevents stylus damage if the cartridge somehow slides across a record. The elliptical diamond stylus does the job of tracking groves with high accuracy.
As you will expect, the result is outstanding audio reproduction. It is famous for excellent tracking with superb inner groove music that has almost no distortion. The AT95E includes a mounting hardware and stylus guard. It is very carefully assembled with remarkably tight tolerances. If you are on a tight budget, the AT95E is definitely the way to go.
Usually supplied as a standard on the RP1 turntable, the Rega Carbon is designed with an easy-to-fit plastic stylus guard. This guard reduces the anxiety of possibly damaging it in the course of mounting and alignment. The moving magnet cartridge has a conical stylus that is more forgiving of imprecise set up.
It reproduces sounds very neatly and gives allowance for the finer details of instruments to be heard. This makes the music sound as though the band were playing right in front of you. The stylus can also be very easily replaced.Join community organized leagues, ladders, tournaments and more. Play your favorite games with your communities and friends.
