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.

Advertise on Skratchworx
Posted by Gizmo on August 31, 2004

Skratchworx becomes 1 year old on September 9th - and it's been one hell of a year thanks to you guys spurring me on to continue my hard work. But it all costs money. So it's time for skratchworx to recoup some of the costs and take in advertising.

New site feature - search the news
Posted by Gizmo on August 27, 2004
Very minor site update - check the new header on the main news page. Should clear things up for a few people as to what should and shouldn't be posted.

Also, I've added a search feature. Note - it doesn't search comments, just news stories. Hope it improves your skratchworx experience.

Drum roll please...
Posted by Gizmo on August 23, 2004
So the lines are closed and the votes are counted... well not quite but Lil Miss Giz has once again stepped up and picked some winners for the Technics DMC World Championships.

Picking up seated weekend passes is Fred from London (so not far to travel there). And sadly standing for the entire weekend is Leslie Patarroyo who is travelling from Florida. Congrats and all that - hope you enjoy the show.

And a big thanks to DMC for the tickets!

PLASA competition results
Posted by Gizmo on August 19, 2004
The competition is closed and the names have been picked. This time not by my daughter, but by my old school friend Max - currently visiting the UK shores from his long time home in LA. I fear Max's only reason for coming over is to sample the delights of my Fish Finger and Tomato Sauce butties but he happily stepped up to the responsibility of picking winners.

Anyways - congrats to Chris Richard, Dave Murray and Weak Sauce (no doubt ensuring yet more complaints of bribery and corruption). Well done guys and make sure you hunt me down at PLASA.

If you were unlucky enough to miss out, there's still a a chance to blag some over at close personal friends and drinking war opponents Spin Science. Hurry - it's but a few weeks away!

A forum - what do you think?
Posted by Gizmo on August 17, 2004
Skratchworx is due for an upgrade in the next few weeks - a very small sneak peek of it can be seen on the left. But there's something that has been bugging me for sometime and today's events have brought it to the forefront of my mind yet again.

Should skratchworx have a forum?

REVIEW: Vestax PMC 05 Pro III
Posted by Gizmo on August 17, 2004


Another Vestax review for you, this time it's the upgrade to the classic PMC 05 Pro II - the FX loop enabled 05 Pro III.

First spied near on a year ago at PLASA 2003, the 05 is a blend of solid build quality, ear pleasing sound and features. And keep coming back as the 05 Pro SL - the sampling 05 - will no doubt be getting a testing sometime soon after PLASA as well.

Denon "D-Day" is coming
Posted by Gizmo on August 2, 2004


Denon have announced... er... an announcement. Absolutely no details about what they are announcing but in this thread on the unofficial Denon forum, Denon are making out like it's something worth waiting for. If you read further on (like page 5), you'll see that Silvio Zeppieri, Denon DJ Product Manager in the US says:

"Gizmo, I think your readers over at skratchworx will like 8/11."

Big words indeed and very intriguing. We can all hazard guesses as to what the announcement will be but what's your guess? All will be revealed on 11th August so be sure to come back then for more hot news.
