(Evokateur, Mary at Midnight, Sean Seraphim, and idiotech at Satan's Circus, 25 October 2011)
Several years ago, I did my first laptop-based DJ sets at mash-up night 'Legs & Co. But I always felt the laptop created a barrier - not just the physical barrier of laptop screen, but also the lost connection between what the audience sees and what they hear. ( I talk about this more in my blog entry on Ulrich Schnauss's London gig, back in June). So I've stuck to decks ever since.
