Entry 05: Evolution UC-33e
Well today I decided to spend my money on a Midi Controller. Yes, I am a big fan of Surkin and I do birdwatch his sets and what he uses. I saw the midi controller he used and all I could see on the back was "evolution." It is quick and simple, the knobs on it are smooth (no clicks) and 9 faders (1 assigned to master volume). This thing is beast mode, not to mention the pads you can also assign to do different things on ableton. I'll be using this with Ableton 7, because I really don't feel like learning 8. Yeah, $260 buy.
Cassius - La Mouche (DJ Falcon Remix)
l electronic, house, funk

In other news, I'd like to share my discovery with you. So yeah I was basically just searching through old radio mixes I had in a folder and I ran into this song that sounded "Daft Punk" type, I was either guessing Alan Braxe & Fred Falke, Daft Punk, or Cassius. I searched through all of Cassius until I gave up. 3 months later I run into the track again and I just forum posted it, turns out the track was right in front of me the whole time. It was a remix of one of Cassius' tracks, La Mouche. Btw, the track is Cassius - La Mouche (DJ Falcon Remix). This has to be the catchiest beat ever next to Chord Memory or Mothership Reconnection (both of Musique), Musique's not that bad either.
