I always wondered where the core of them went. At one stage there was at least 200+ extremely active posters. A lot more than that but I'm talking very very active that pretty much talked severely times a day and many had met each other ect. I know Gruso was trying to salvage the last of them but wonder what ever happened.

I would never have left but I think like many it was a perfect storm. New owners started changing the format of the site plus everyone getting to the stage where they just were not going out every  weekend like they use to mixed with no new users as the next generation was to distracted by Facebook/Instagram/twitter ect mixed with those platforms taking over from forums just all came at once and that was that. Anyway ITM saved me from many hours of boredom back in the day so thanks guys for that. Many classic threads and saying popped up from those forums. And the few people I met ended up having very funny adventures with. So cheers.

Yeah i have to admit, i did dislike the new format of the ITM forums when they changed it, it was enough for me to stop lurking altogether..  I saw alot of backlash from it too..  I guess i'm kind of glad these are here now as i was getting a bit of facebook fatigue, but i wonder how many people actually would come back across to forums instead of facebook.  It might help if they had an app for people to use..

One last observation was the golden days of ITM. I remember that the breaks forum use to be the largest and most active part of the site. Who remembers those days? Australia was obsessed with the sounds of Stanton Warriors and Plump DJs and a thread about a possible tour would easily get 3000 posts

Yeah i think forums pretty much died when social media became huge. There are still places for them especially on nich subjects like eg a sports team or even dance music but the big general ones just don't have appeal like they did but I think there is something in what you said about fatigue with those formats and people wanting more in depth and varied discussion. I do agree with the app being import as 99% of people access these things on their phones these days unlike the old days.

I did see a message about there being App out for this site at one point, but i couldn't find it on the App Store.  Maybe @AdamMadd can shed some light on what its called.

Yeah, there's definitely facebook fatigue out there.  People want a more indepth discussion than just the one-liners on facebook, but people also don't want to move from facebook either.  Again, an app would be perfect.

There is an Android app available, but not an iOS one.  But the android app doesn't have notifications, its just a plain app for accessing the site from your mobile / tablet..

 

Because of the type of software the site uses, i need to get a specific set of developers to write an app for the site which includes notifications.  Unfortunately, those developers are taking their sweet time about writing the app, but i believe they are making progress.  Its just a bit tricky, thats all..  

 

tl:dr - the app is coming, but might take time to arrive..

I'm getting nostalgic now but one of the most memorable ITM times was meeting a ITMer at a boat party and my mate that was new to ITM but had made a bit of a name for himself because of his out there posts is going around introducing himself and me by our ITM names. Ha ha idiot.

Anyway this guy ends up inviting us back to his house on the Harbour. Like a Mansion. And the party unbeknownst to us is kicking off with every substance under the sun..

Anyway the other thing I didn't realise was that the guys invited us back thinking we were gay. And as I walked out into the back yard it was getting pretty full on. As a clubber id seen it all over the years especially some of the gay clubs on Oxford and in Berlin and I have many gay mates but this was a full on scene. Put it this way we would have politely turned down the offer to party on if we knew what they thought we were there to do.

Unbeknownst to me my mate had secured a  very very massive bag full of "fun" like.....like substantial.. I guess as a sort of come on stay and party present. As soon as he came out the back and saw the scene I said let's get out of here I think we have all misunderstood what we are here for.

My mate said follow me we can't leave they just gave me stuff... He was like no no let's go to the bathroom and out the window. So we both went into the bathroom said we were going to get more comfortable.. And squeezed out of the window and legged it back to North Sydney. 

So awkward on ITM on Monday. I did send a pm to the guy to apologise for our rudeness but never did hear back. Probably not the loveliest story as we acted like douch wads really but just some of the stupid crazy ITM stories back in the day. I often wonder what came of that ITMer as he was actually a lovely bloke. 

I edited a few things from this story after re reading as I wouldn't want anyone to be identified but if the ITMer I'm talking about ever happens to read this get in contact and we should catch up for a beer and I can properly apologise.

Hahah oh wow.   I was an old ITMer too back in the day (even though i was also running this site in its original form back then). I can safely say that if it wasn't for ITM, and a particular "Winter ITM BBQ" (Looking towards @audiophile for arranging this BBQ), i wouldn't have met all the people i call close friends these days..

I definitely don't have a story anything like yours though :)  Hahaha

I have plenty. The time London Elektricity came to Oz and was only doing a Canberra and Melbourne show. 

I started a thread about why no Sydney show what a jip... And posted an email I sent him all as a joke. I had a busy week and hadn't checked ITM for a couple of days not anticipating anything from my joke post to Mr Elektricity. 

Anyway I log back in and find I have 35 or so pm's and proceed to find not only ones from Tony Coleman (London Elektricity/owner Hospital records) saying he would love to play Sydney if o knew who would have him but ones from promoters asking for my name for all night drink tickets but also long time fans thanking me for setting up a Sydney show.

This entire show had been organised on a silly joke post I had sent and ended up being an amazing night. I use to have a video on my phone of being big upped by the MC dancing behind the decks with Tony djing with arms around each other. This all from a joke post on ITM

Thats pretty awesome!  I remember half the time the PMs didn't notify via email when you got one, i remember logging in once after a few weeks of not being on and having half a dozen from local DJs who wanted to play on my show i was running at the time on hrmny.tv..  lol..

Originally it was a piece of software called "NewsPro CGI" for most of their site.  Not sure about the forums though.  @audiophile might have a bit more of an idea?

As a point of disclosure, we use a system called "Invision Community" (used to be known as Invision Power Board) with a bunch of add-ons and a heap of customised pages to suit each location.

      DJ SPEN:
      US house icon DJ Spen first laid his hand on the decks at the age of thirteen while growing up in his native city of Baltimore - he hasn’t looked back since.
      Also known as Sean Spencer, the talented DJ and producer began his illustrious career in the mid-’80s as a hip-hop radio DJ making beats under the moniker Numarx, responsible for writing and recording 'Girl You Know It’s True,' later covered and made into a smash hit by Milli Vanilli. The years that followed saw DJ Spen move away from hip-hop and towards the classic Chicago house sound that would define his productions for years to come, after joining forces with famed production collective The Basement Boys. Working under the name Jasper Street Co., DJ Spen released his first 12″ through Basement Boys Records in 1995, the energetic gospel house cut ‘A Feeling.’ This was the first in a lauded series of releases for the label that brought Spen commercial and dancefloor success over the next decade, earning him international recognition as a house music pioneer.  In 2004, DJ Spen split from Basement Boys, releasing through Black Vinyl Records and his own label Code Red before founding his second imprint Quantize Recordings, which has since become a regular outlet for his music. Alongside his own productions, DJ Spen has built a reputation as a talented and prolific remix artist, putting his own unique stamp on pop anthems from Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Everything but the Girl, Toni Braxton and more. If that isn’t enough, he’s still spinning eclectic and soulful jams in clubs across the globe, further establishing his status as an eminent figure in house music, both past and present.
       

      DR PACKER:
      Dr Packer is an alias of West Australian DJ/Producer Greg Packer, set up for Remixes & Edits of mainly retro music such as 70’s, 80’s, 90’s Soul, Disco, Funk, Hip Hop & Reggae. Greg although known more for ‘Liquid Drum & Bass’ regularly plays sets of ‘Old School Funk, Disco & Hip Hop. Greg purchased his first record in 1982 at the age of 10. That record was ‘Grandmaster Flash – The Message’! Greg grew up in Northampton in the UK, frequently listening to his mother’s disco records (to which he says he had no choice!). In the 70’s it wasn’t uncommon to hear music such as ‘Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now’ or ‘And The Beat Goes On’ played in the house, so the disco thing really was his first introduction to music, records became his life and he has collected 25,000+ over the years.  Dr Packer has quickly become a mainstay in the sets of some of the biggest names in the disco world with the likes of Greg Wilson, Hot Toddy, Fingerman, Joey Negro and Norman Jay regularly featuring his edits in their performances. All of this support helped Dr Packer to be voted #1 in the Traxsource Top 20 Nu Disco Artists midway through 2015. At the end of the year Dr Packer came in at #4 in the Top 100 Disco Artists

      Following on from epic originals and impeccable remixes earlier this year, you’d think Benson had already reached the pinnacle of 2018. Yet as we move into the latter part, his next release featuring Stace Cadet and Yeah Boy continues to see Benson rise above the ranks. Releasing on his own esteemed Medium Rare label, check out heavenly collaboration – Faith. 
       
      Glorious chords and an impelling vocal graces the track with ethereal touches whilst the euphoric bass line ascends this psalm into clubbers paradise, making Faith a moving piece of house music fortified with saintly credibility. A club ready anthem as well as a peak time track, Benson is set to reach listeners of biblical proportion. 
       
      Having already had an exceptional year, Benson’s career continues to skyrocket. The Australian producer has accumulated millions of streams with the likes of originals including Hold Out and a remix of Stace Cadet’s High. Not stopping there, Benson is also dominating our airwaves with national airplay whilst securing an in demand residency slot with triple J. Gig-wise, Benson impressively launched a sold-out headline tour, clearly demonstrating himself as an artist of prominence we can’t wait to see where Benson takes us next on his musical journey. 
       
      Benson – Faith ft. Stace Cadet and Yeah Boy is out now via Medium Rare Recordings.

      OzClubbers Feature
      ICARUS - Man of the Land (feat. Real Lies)
      Release date: Friday 2nd November

       
      Their last track ‘Echoes’ hit #3 on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Chart  Annie Mac has been a long-term admirer, not only picking four consecutive singles as her Hottest Record but also booking them for her Lost & Found Festival. Currently the duo are on tour Rüfüs Du Sol for North American shows which culminates with three nights at New York’s Terminal 5, and then are also special guests at various UK shows.  “The Bristol-based brotherly duo have established themselves as out of the box thinkers.” – Mixmag “Clearly illustrates why the duo is being heralded as one of the UK's most promising talents at the moment.” – Earmilk  
      Fresh from releasing their latest track ‘Echoes’ which hit #3 on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Chart, Bristol’s innovative crossover production duo Icarus have teamed up with London trio Real Lies for their new single ‘Man of the Land’.
       
      Both ‘Man of the Land’ and ‘Echoes’ feature on Icarus’s new EP ‘This Must Be The Place’ which follows on November 30th. The EP represents Icarus’s latest longer form conceptual project after releasing the ‘In The Dark’ EP earlier this year.
       
      ‘Man of the Land’ represents the darker, cinematic extreme of Icarus’s sonic spectrum. The hypnotic beat captures the feeling of pounding the city streets late at night before the drop accentuates its dramatic feel. It’s a track which finds Icarus strengthening the evocative atmospheric qualities of past tracks such as ‘No Sleep’ and ‘Hiding’.
       
      Real Lies’ lyrics delve into the experiences of a transient character whose solitary life on the capital’s empty streets is set against the contrast of its hectic late night bars. It captures a feeling of urban anxiety that could only be nocturnal London. As the song’s narrator notes, “I come from Cally Road, not California.”
       
      Widely praised for their self-titled debut album, Noisey summarised Real Lies’ approach by stating, “Although an echo chamber of past influences mixed with the contemporary ambience of Burial or Jamie xx, their defining factor is the thoroughly modern ennui that infects their lyrics.”
       
      Icarus explain the EP’s concept: “The theme of this EP is based around always moving from one place to the next, or running away – as well as the thoughts, feelings and emotions which come from living this way. There are moments of feeling free from being tied down and having endless possibilities. But there’s also a loneliness and anxiety that comes from simply moving on rather than addressing your problems. It’s not about making a judgment on people who are in that situation, it’s just an exploration of a yin-and-yang lifestyle.”
       
      Since debuting in 2015 with the ‘Don’t Cry Wolf’ EP, ICARUS have progressed from being a hotly-tipped name to become a regular fixture on daytime radio. Annie Mac has been a long-term admirer, not only picking four consecutive singles as her Hottest Record (‘Love Has Come Around’,‘King Kong’, ‘Trouble’ and ‘No Sleep’) but also booking them for her Lost & Found Festival.
       
      ICARUS’s other radio highlights include a sun-scorched set at Radio 1 Live in Ibiza and contributing an Essential Mix for Pete Tong. In addition to Annie Mac, their other supporters at radio have included Pete Tong, Phil Taggart, Danny Howard, MistaJam, Monki and Alice Levine. Their wide-ranging list of fans also includes Pendulum, who invited them to remix their classic track ‘Tarantula’ from their all-star collabs album ‘The Reworks’.
       
      Earlier this year, ICARUS debuted their full live band show which they then took on a headline tour and then to the South West Four Weekender. They’re now poised to hit the road with Australia's own Rüfüs Du Sol on their ‘Solace’ tour: first with a run of North American shows which culminates with three nights at New York’s Terminal 5, and then as special guests at various UK shows.

    • At first glance, Brisbane DJ DefWill appears to be going from strength to strength, balancing university studies, events management roles for festivals like Splendour in the Grass, Rabbits Eat Lettuce and Live Large, DJing some of the deepest techno rhythms at some of the primest techno parties on the east coast of Oz and also that he has never let the fact that he is deaf hold him back. Though if one takes the time to look (and talk) a little deeper it becomes clear that he, like many of us, carries burdens that are well beyond his control and the weight of which has been known to bring even the strongest of us down.

    • From the DJ’s perspective; since Larry Levan’s early days at the Paradise Garage, the remix – or playing different versions of songs – was one of the first notable aspects of what we now know as DJ Culture. His ethic of refreshing successful dancefloor movers in the late seventies passed down generations of DJ has been long-established as almost a perfunctory task, almost a must-do to be undertaken by the disk jockey.

    • Here is a fresh new mix from us—and one that definitely gives us the warm and fuzzies!

      So, our 'Attic' brand as a whole, the music we push—and, indeed, Andrew and I as individual DJs—is often centred around music on the lower, slower, deeper, warm-up tip. That is a label we've always worn with pride.

    • Recently I got to go check out the official Outlook Festival Queensland launch party in Brisbane. Presented by Quality Street Byron Bay, the event concept paid tribute to one of Europe’s most exciting Drum and Bass festivals and is a celebration of sound system culture.
