Ok try to think of it from this standpoint you are a big name DJ your mix is getting played on sirius there is only 1 sweep on the top of the hour this would make it very easy for other djays and people to steal your mixes if it it even lets say once every 15 minutes makes it hard to steal since there is sweeps and drops in there

I don't think sweepers as a concept are bad. But the ones they use are. They should be 3-4 seconds tops. NO sound effects, inserted in the sets at the right place, and then done. Quick hits would work.

We don't care they are the dopest beats, banging coast to coast whatever.

Also, anyone ever noticed sometimes you can't even make them out. In other words the music overpowers them and you hear junk because they aren't leveled properly?

Mike, I don't think sweepers are there to discourage people from stealing mixes. Honestly, if someone wanted to jack their mixes, they could get tracklists and recreate, fade to their own sweeper a few seconds before after and dub this mix, etc.

I don't really know since I don't work there, but I do know, as a listener and a purchaser of their product, I don't like, nor need all of the sweepers

I do understand what you are saying I have noticed myself clashing in the mixes cause of the sound effects in the sweeps. I also do understand your point in regards to using shorter ones I feel the ideal situatione would be possibly to use sweeps and drops for each specific DJ maybe 3-5 seconds lets see what happens you never know

Default Tracklistings...

I wish Sirius could have an archive on their website to what tracks a DJ used in a set. That would be so cool, and could help me research certain tracks I really liked.

umm, just to let you guys know , none of us who play on the rave get paid, Also when the say some of the best or well known DJ's thats because most of us do radio mixshows in our own markets or are syndicated. Me personally, I'm syndicated in 13 different markets on a show called Digital Groove I also guest on a show in London, plus I'm on a local station in my market (in Florida) and soon to be on in Colorado Springs and not to mention I'm a regular on The Rave. So we might not be the Testo's or Oakenfolds out there but alot of us do have some major credentials.

You are definetly one of the better DJ's on there.

Hey, tell Philip Turnipseed I love his sets, I honestly do, but if he ever wants to be taken seriously he desperately needs to change his name. Even just "Turnipseed" would be better than "Philip Turnipseed." I honestly would be embarassed to by a mix CD by a "Philip Turnipseed" no matter how good it is...

Same here, Art! keep up the good work.

And about the Toad the wet sprocket comment. When I used to work iin radio, I was affectionately called Todd the Wet Sprocket. I guess it was affectionately anyway.

That was all well and good though until that cursed day when a new group came out...Big Head Todd and the monsters.

oh yeah, and now there's this Todd TV show coming out.

in case you haven't guessed my name is Todd and my life stinks haha!
(except for the dog of course)

Alright, a month after the original post.... my thoughts thus far.

---

WAYS TO IMPROVE THE RAVE:

1) Change the scrolling info. We all know that "Stream 62 is 24 Hours of Mixing!" so there is no need to have that for every DJ. The ID that shows up on my radio should read:

Line 1: Name of DJ
Line 2: City of DJ

Just like that. Keep it simple and PROFESSIONAL. No need to have the guys try to sound cool and say "Joe Schmoe Reppin Strong Island" or whatever which sounds like some teenage shoutout. Maybe around NY that's cool to say your from "Strong Island", but in Chicago or other cities people will take one look at that and say "whatever." It looks to much like your trying too hard to be cool. I also don't want to see people saying "New York" if they are from Syracuse, for instance. Just say "Syracuse." No need for them to be embarassed that they aren't from a metro of several million.... just be professional and let the music speak for itself. It should be just:

David Garcia
San Francisco

...rather than...

Stream 62 is 24 Hours of Mixing!
David Garcia reppin' San Fran

2) Keep getting new DJ's on there and new styles. Variety is the key to this channel. Let's hear deep house, techno, deep trance, hard trance, breakbeats, downtempo, drum n' bass, etc. You get the picture.

3) Represent all of America. This is America's DJ mix channel, not New York's. Let's hear DJ's from Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Atlanta, D.C., etc. etc. You get the picture. I want to see on my radio one day:

ESP Woody McBride
Minneapolis

...for instance. Just like hip-hop has different regional flavors, so does Dance. This is a national music. I hear too much New York House on the channel... I don't blame you because you are out of New York. But as you work on the channel let's hear some Deep Chicago stuff, some funky stuff from San Francisco, some Trance out of Los Angeles, etc. I realize that DJ's can be just as good from New Jersey, but let's get some regional *and* musical variety on this channel. Get out a list of the 20 biggest cities in America and make sure you can find some DJ's who will send you a few mixes in each of them, but cities like New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles should have an equal amount of representation each. These are the big Dance centers. I realize Miami is big with clubbing, but I'm talking DJ culture. Funny enough I haven't seen any DJ's from Chitown or L.A. on the channel yet. Definetly work on that... among other cities.

Capeache?

Keep working on it. The channel is getting better... slowly but surely.
