    Those Having Trouble With iPhone X’s Face ID Are “Holding It Wrong”


    Guest

    The biggest change coming with the iPhone X is undoubtedly Face ID, as Apple rids its smartphone devices of yesterday’s Touch ID.

    As with any newly introduced technology, there are mixed reviews coming in… Some absolutely love the Face ID, while others believe it needs some serious work. One reviewer went as far to compare startup times between Face ID vs. Touch ID, and he found that 1.5 seconds simply doesn’t compare to the average 0.91 seconds offered by the older technology.

    Nilay Patel, a writer for the Verge shared a particularly insightful account of his experience with the iPhone X, which explains the mixed reviews among users:

    I had a lot of problems pulling the iPhone X out of my pocket and having it fail to unlock until Apple clarified that Face ID works best at a distance of 25 to 50 centimeters away from your face, or about 10 to 20 inches. That’s closer than I usually hold my phone when I pull it out of my pocket to check something, which means I had to actively think about holding the iPhone X closer to my face than every other phone I’ve ever used. “You’re holding it wrong” is a joke until it isn’t, and you can definitely hold the iPhone X wrong […]

    Surprisingly, Face ID works great in low light, bright light, dim light, and even in the dark, according to another review. However, it tends to fail most in fluorescent light.

    Take a look…

      GALLEON: So guys, thanks so much for sitting down with me to talk about all things Musika! Tell us about how you began working with each other and the name Yolanda Be Cool?
      YBC: Sure no worries, our pleasure. Matty used to DJ at a bar I used to bartend at. I used to take him tequila shots and talk his ear off about music and djaying. Before long I was buying records and we started playing back to back at clubs all over Sydney then Australia. Then naturally we started making mix tapes and bootlegs together, then before long we ended up doing official remixes then finally releasing our own original singles.
      The name comes from one of our favourite scenes from one of our favourite movies.. Pulp Fiction…   “Be Cool Honey Bunny” “Tell that bitch to be cool”.. YOLANDA BE COOL...
      GALLEON: On your new jam Musika, you feature the vocals of Kwanzaa Posse. Who are they and how did you get to colaborate with them.
      YBC: We are always on the hunt for killer tracks to sample. On one of our sample hunts we came across Kwanzaa Posse out of Africa and their tune Musika had an amazing vocal part that really stood out to us. So we got to work on a version and sent it to their publisher to approve. They loved it so much they were happy to be featured artists on the single. We were stoked.
      GALLEON: Looking to the hot remix package for Musika, you have chosen some wicked artists such as Babert, GotSome, Flash89 & Dateless to put their touch to the record. How did you choose these artists?
      YBC: We were so lucky with this remix package, it was a combination of the legends at Sweat It Out calling in a lot of favours and I think the track being unique and appealing to remix which allowed us to get such dope names on the package.
      GALLEON: You guys are heavily involved with the running of Sweat It Out. How did you become associated with one of the late Ajax's biggest ventures?
      YBC: We both idolised Ajax, and still think he is the best DJ ever. When Sydney didn’t have the lock out laws we used to finish work at 2:00am in the bar above then run down and watch Ajax and the Bang Gang play till 6:00am at their weekly party…. We did this for years and then Matt was woking at a record label helping Ajax put together his legendary mashed DJ mix compilations, they got chatting about starting their own label and after a few hot and sweaty laksa’s on hung over Mondays..  'Sweat It Out’  was born. 
      GALLEON: Your music has often featured vibes from Africa and Latin America, giving your records a great uplifting carnival feel. Are world music and other cultures a big influence for you?
      YBC: Most definitely and we don’t discriminate.  We have sampled tunes from Africa, Columbia, Italy, England and Camaroon to name a few countries. We love combing elements and sounds from exotic places and re-contextualising them in a way that makes sense for us and the dance floors we play to.
      GALLEON: What are your biggest 3 records right now.
      YBC: ahhh Our friend did an edit of Raingurl by Yaeji which is so dope… Fisher’s tune STOP IT always kills it. and of course Musika feat Kwanzaa Posse by us:)
      GALLEON: Tell us about the biggest gig you have ever played and why? 
      YBC: The biggest number of people was a free party for the King of Morocco. There was over 100,000 people there. But one of our personal favourite biggest gigs for us was the MTV party @ Amnesia in Ibiza with A-Trak and Armand Van Helden. That was sick

      Rave Radio are back with their new single, Morning Light - a summer House anthem, featuring vocals from MANBN. The Australian DJ duo combine live performance elements with high-octane EDM sets. They are kings of the viral Facebook video, raking in 19 million plays with their top Facebook video, and they’re now establishing themselves as fully fledged artists.
      Rave Radio’s previous single Carry You is on MTV’s daily rotation and peaked at #6 on the Aria Club Chart. Prior to that success, their single Turn Me Out racked up over 3.5m plays on Spotify. It’s clear these guys aren’t messing around! As we look to the future, Rave Radio will continue to dominate stages with the delivery of their incredible live experiences.  Meanwhile, fresh material will build momentum on the key streaming platforms and radio-waves – the future is looking bright!
      Rave Radio layer MANBN’s glorious top line over luscious guitar picking, as the tight percussion builds into a euphoric chorus of funky bass, vocal chops and groovy drums. Morning Light channels the warmth of an uplifting, pacific sunrise. It successfully cements Rave Radio’s position at the fore-front of popular dance music, and does so with pristine execution – the final product is a gem soaked in irresistible flare!

      DJ/Producer Dennis White aka Latroit won a Grammy for his remix of Depeche Mode’s track ‘You Move’ at this year’s 60th Grammy Awards, at Madison Square Gardens, New York.
      His current release ‘Feather’ with Lliam Taylor & Aussie vocalist Charlz is currently being played on radio across Australia.
       
      When Ozclubbers spoke to Latroit, he had just returned home to LA from New York and was decompressing from an intense week. He talks about the surrealness of winning a Grammy and how he came to work on the Depeche Mode classic “You Move”.
       
      How did you come to work with Depeche Mode?
      I was approached to remix the song and when I heard the vocal I like the way you move I just thought it was such a great vocal for a dance remix. I couldn’t get it out of my head and I had the entire remix done in my brain pretty quickly after hearing the vocal.
      It was really natural, it came to me really quickly. Maybe just one day of prep. It has taken me 5 or 6 days previously to do a remix, but that is usually when I was overthinking things. Sometimes it’s just best to embrace the notion that your first idea is your best idea”.
      You recently worked with Aussie vocalist Charlz on the track Feather. Can you tell us about how you and Charlz linked up?
      I have been a fan of hers for a long time, I was familiar with her voice, we were linked up by a friend of mine. Charlz is the greatest undiscovered talent in the world, she’s my favourite vocalist, I love her work on Feather and I’m excited to see how her career evolves.
      What advice would you give up and coming producers given the amount of music being released on a weekly basis (estimated 30,000 tracks on Beatport).
      My advice is always the same for up and coming producers. Listen to what everyone else is doing, and then do the total opposite. Find a way to stand out from the crowd because you are far more likely to be ignored doing what everyone else is doing, than you are if you’re doing something that’s different and unique.
      So, my two bits of advice are always the same, be good at your craft, be good! Put in the time, don’t fuck around on twitter and Instagram so much, get in there and be good at your craft. Just be conscious of doing something that’s unique that is natural to you. It’s so tempting when you hear something popular to want to do something that will fit but be unique.
      How long does it take you to make professional tracks?
      Sometimes a day but I’ve worked on songs for 6 months, if I’m not feeling it, I’ll shelf it and come back to it. There are songs I’ve let lay around for a few years. But try to find a balance and move on.
      What's your favourite synth?
      I have a Roland Juno 6 that I brought in 84’. It’s my favourite synth because I saved up to buy it. It was the first thing I played around with and that’s how I fell in love with electronic music. I still have it in my studio and I use it in some of my songs.
      What’s it like winning a Grammy? – It’s a surreal experience at first. You’re asked - what’s it feel like when you hear your name? Well it doesn’t feel like anything, but your like, I heard my name and I was like oh shit! I didn’t prepare a speech because I wasn’t going to win this thing. So I had like about 15 seconds between this seat and that stage to figure out what the hell I’m going do in front of a room full of people. I really went straight to focusing on that and then there’s a bunch of stuff that happens backstage after that. There isn’t really a lot of time for it to sink in. Dave Chappelle won best comedy album and his speech summed it up perfectly, he said - I’d like to thank my wife, my dad etc etc and at the end he says “see you on Monday” and that’s exactly what it’s like. You arrive home and your back to taking out the garbage and doing your laundry.
