Monthly Archive

Below is a complete archive of all the news stories we've ever posted, broken down by month. Apologies for any missing pictures - the recent host change has seen a few images go walkabout. As I come across them, I'll find them and reinsert them. But I'm sure you'd rather I worked on the all new site than recover 7 year old images.

The Return Of UMX?!?

When one thinks "high end", Gemini usually doesn't come to mind. That said, this time I think that they may be on to something....

Happy Birthday to me!
Posted by Gizmo on December 27, 2004
Yes today is your elderly host's birthday. And while contemplating my final year in my thirties (I'm 39 today), and waiting for the family to get up and pamper me, I decided to surf around and find a Gizmo cake - and I found only one - and it had my name on it. Spooky... unsure.gif

Posted by Gizmo on December 26, 2004

Just as my chestnuts were roasting on an open fire, I got a mail all the way from Tek at skratch.ru asking me if I knew more about this new Vestax deck... which I didn't. So a little more digging and crap translating revealed an new but not yet officially announced D-Styles and Ricci Rucker custom PDX2300 deck.

Seasons Greetings from SKRATCHWORX!
Posted by Gizmo on December 24, 2004

Just a quick note before we all wonder off to visit families, consume vast quantities of alcohol and food and then wonder just how much you could fetch on eBay for the god awful present your loved ones have bought you.

The sw_smilie.png team wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year and thank you from the bottom of our boots for your continued support.

There will be an end of year retrospective in the next week or so where each of us will look at the ups, downs, heros and zeros in 2005, plus a few spurious awards and predictions for 2005.

The showdown is coming...
Posted by Gizmo on December 8, 2004


To keep people up to date, sw_smilie.png has received most of the long awaited and much anticipated CrowdControl records Serato vs Final Scratch2 vs CDX showdown review. Movies are uploaded, 75% of the actual text is here and all the images are ready. Please be patient - there's so much of it to get through. It'll be a few days yet (hopefully Saturday), but I guarantee it'll be worth the wait. And don't ask for sneak peeks because it ain't happening.
