Sound team Asseeeeemblllle. Right, on the 22nd of August I am putting on another Unique Beats event which will last from 1pm until 3am...14 hours of electro madness with a mix of experimental sounds, hip-hop, drum'n'bass and everything in between. We will be giving out free CD's of Unique Beats artists as well as free demo's etc from the lovely companies such as Ableton , Reason, Pro Logic etc etc.
Does anyone have a list of the equipment that the Forest has for the main cafe area stage.? Need to know what cables, how many mixers, how many DI boxes, do we have monitor speakers?. Yeah I know I'm being a pain in the bum but we have a lot of acts and an eclectic amount of instruments all needing inputs etc. Also what lighting is available? Do we have a projector available to use and how long are the leads for this etc. Been trying to phone Nix about all of this but his phone is not on. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I really struggle to find any time to come in to the Forest at the moment.
Here's the line-up:
!KUNG (World Exclusive!!! Full of surprises, new identity of the recluse electro genius...all will be revealed)
Alex Tronic (rare live appearance from Alex tronic Records head honcho)
Engine7 (Chilled and upbeat tunage from weegie land....back by immense demand!)
1SP (French hip-hop dans la maison y'all)
no !i input - Live A/V set (will blow your face off!)
Chief of Belize (dirty sounds and big beats)
Brainstormer(drum'n'bass jumpy jumpy music)
Freemoore (experimental electro)
Asthmatic Astronaut (big big beats from former Underling maestro with possible special guest Lifeshows)
B Burg (smooth hip-hop/jazz dancefloor noodlings from former LiveSciences guitarist)
The Amazing Rolo (music with a Wii remote..ace!!!)
Pandacetamol (ethereal organic atmospheres)
4ward Play (smooth and mellow)
7VWVVW (multi keyboard analogue mayhem-possible special guest "Kyon")
Gerry Mawhinney (in your face, you.will.dance!)

So there it is, it's gonna be hectic but amazing, and this is one of the reasons we need to know well in advance about the tech side of things so we can have everything in place prior to the event, and know what we need to hire, borrow, buy.
It's like God's vagina!
