    would be cool if in order to mix on turntable.fm you start spinning and they let ppl hear between you and random 5 other people, and if the majority choose you, then you get streamed to the large crowd, and you spin your set.  Then if people start voting that they dislike you, it goes back to the original room of 5 DJs and they get to pick the next DJ

  • Loverocket

    I think SSradioUK has the formula correct. If you are a good DJ, start a weekly mixshow and it will get played. End of story. This gimmicky crap is shit.

    I remember once I thought about trying to do a virtual thing using IMVU or Second Life.  The problem though is I agree with Yale Fox.  A club is about sex and lifestyle.  It’s why we’ve seen the “rave culture” kinds of clubs die out in favor of the fashion/bottle service spots.  Many women are simply going out to be treated as royalty and get attention as well as freebies, and the guys are going out hoping to shag one of those women.

    A virtual nightclub of any kind IMHO is like online radio.  You need people to easily be able to tune in.  I think it would be cool if one could do live streams or something, but I guess then you run into the usual problems online radio hits.  I think sites like Turntable.fm could rock for the musically minded and the DJs who want ideas on things to get, but I don’t think we’ll see people spend Saturday night on their computers compared to a bar or club.

    It would be dope to associate turntable.fm with the iWebDJ online DJ application  ( http://www.iwebdj.com/demo ), what do you think?

    I couldn’t disagree with the format more, all it does is encourages
    people to take the easy way of playing something everyone knows or a dubstep
    remix of any pop song created in the last 40 years.  There is nothing
    which annoys me more than DJs which only plays mashups of pop songs or whatever
    the current top40 tracks are in for the moment.  It is such a cheap way
    pull a crowd and once you take the actual mixing aspect then the negative
    effects just multiply.  To be a top 40 dj
    all you need is some sort of auto-feed from a handful of dance music charts
    then hit auto-sync and BAM you’re now the days hottest DJ… that is so unbelievably
    lame in my opinion.

    • laforge

      couldn’t of put it better myself..

    • bmo

      $50 says YOU can’t mix top 40 that has BPM ranging from all-over better than House or Dubstep/DnB

    If they could combine: http://wheelsofsteel.net/ with turntable.fm. That would be nuts. Even on a rudimentary level, the ability to mix into the previous track would be tons of funs.

    My first sight of virtual clubbing was a bit different to this… Anyone heard of Res Live? www.reslive.com
    Its basically some sims style avatars and you can go to a club and watch DJ’s play. It is utterly bizarre but did have some interesting interactivity.
    Not a touch on the real thing, but an interesting concept none the less.

  • http://twitter.com/regend REGEND

    this isn’t really anything new. It’s a much better experience when DJ’s are shown in a video screen and peopel are chatting along with the talen. Just spend some tim ewith DJ Scratch’s Scratchvision or Da Beatminerz Beatminerz Radio…oh wait…hip-hop has been doing this type of this since 1996 to 2001 (look up PSEUDO NETWORKS created by Josh Harris) and the mainstream ignored it.

  • djproben

    Wake me when we can actually mix across the net :)  I’ve been wanting to do it for years but having played with a few different possibilities via icecast and whatnot, it seems difficult.  Latency is of course the big problem but it seems there should be solutions for flexible creative DJs.  I guess bandcamp has something like this but I haven’t seen it in action?

  • http://www.facebook.com/LeeZerUK Lee Grace

    as already said hotspot shield works to get around the US filter but you still need a facebook friend already joined to get involved yourself.  i’d love have a go if anyone can help out.  thanks

  • mizL

    The other night I was introduced to this while checking in on The Do Lab. At first i was hesitant as to what i was getting myself into, but with Kraddy, R/D and Stephan Jacobs supposedly playing music, i figured i’d give it a shot.

    Im sure with every e-chat room, forum, etc. your gonna get a bunch of BS, but that night instead of just putting on Pandora and hearing songs at random. Those guys were playing unreleased new/old material, some of their favorite tunes. And for me hearing what inspires them or songs that they might not have let out to the public is a good idea in my mind.

    As long as you dont look at it like a bunch of top dj’s trying to host an e-dance party, and more like a interactive record pool, I think it will be a benefit rather that a aol chat room gone bad.

    I’ve been on Turntable FM for quite some time now.
    Here’s my opinion so far:

    1. You owe it to yourself to at least check it out.
    This has the potential to be the next big thing for dj’s/producers after
    SoundCloud. If you’re outside US, use a free VPN service with a server in the US
    to get in.

    2. Why you should care:

    - It’s really very addictive and 140.000 users in the
    first month of existence only illustrates that. A leading technology blog
    called it the “the
    most exciting social service of the year”  and lots of major players in the industry like
    Mark Zuckerberg  (Facebook) and Eric
    Wahlforss (SoundCloud) have been spotted in there.

    - It’s the perfect way to discover and increase your
    collection of favorite tracks in no time because of this killer feature, the “t”
    button. Every time you hear something played by others you like, hitting that
    button will instantly add that track to your collection, brilliant!

    - This is one of the better ways to instantly connect
    with people who like the same music as you do. Like groups on SoudCloud, there’s
    is a community called “ room” for every style. However, Turntable FM brings it
    to next level, because of the build in chat and rating system that makes your avatar
    dance to the music if you like the stuff others are playing. There’s some real sense
    of chemistry and unity that can be felt, when a whole room full of people are virtually
    dancing and freaking out on the same tracks.

    - It’s a great way to promote yourself as a dj. You earn
    points and new avatars when people dig your music. The killer feature as
    described in the article is however that others can “fan” you. This means that they
    can see in which room you are but also, they will receive an email the moment you
    start dj-ing. Also you can send out Twitter and Facebook messages to instantly
    invite others to your virtual party. All perfect tools to gang up with like-minded
    people in no time.

    - Perfect testing stage for producers. Testing your
    new track will give you direct and valuable feedback as people can vote “lame” or
    “awesome” for it and will throw suggestions at you via the chat.

    - It’s the perfect radio station when you prefer just to
    listen to it in the background. The social control generally prevents dj’s from
    playing inappropriate tracks for the room they are playing in. If you spin a
    dubstep track for instance in an ambient room people will immediately hit the “lame”
    button and your turn is instantly over. You can even get booted for that. This
    peer pressure to be on the top of your game and play your best tracks generally
    keeps the quality in the rooms very high.

    If you have any questions or want more tips, just pm
    me or be sure to hit me in this room if you love (nu) disco: http://turntable.fm/deep_disco We’re already with some cool players to share the best
    music in this genre with each other J

    It should also be added that turntable.fm asks for full offline access rights to your facebook account, which basically means they can do whatever you want whenever they want with your data.

    but really its a nice way to test tracks to see if other people are into them, and just fun to go and listen to music :)

    I’ve been hangin’ out mostly in the 80s alt new wave room. People have been super chill and it has been really cool in that people have been progressively pulling out more and more obscure/deep 80s cuts which I then go on the hunt and wishlist for on Discogs if I enjoyed and currently do not have in my own collection, yet. 

    I concur that it is highly addictive (bad if you are trying to do your real job during the day). The rooms are pretty self moderating. I do hope to see new features rolled out into the site and this social experience would be great to get on the big screen as a form of set top box app for say apple tv, plex. google tv, roku, boxee, etc… Some crafty people have created some stats tools (unofficial) to get room/user stats here: http://ttdashboard.com/bookmarklet/
