Çaykh - V I S C 0 9 Music Album Reviews

On a tape label with links to Hamburg’s Golden Pudel club, the German curator delivers a deep-diving, pitch-shifting DJ mix traversing Alice Coltrane, desert blues, and cacophonous synths and drums.
The Berlin-based producer and DJ Çaykh, born Nicolas Sheikholeslami, is a shadow on the wall of the internet, mentioned in passing by those who've admired his remarkable mixes but with almost no presence beyond his SoundCloud. That account reveals that he runs a cassette label dedicated to Somali music; he has released two (excellent) compilations to this effect in recent years, one of which was nominated for an unlikely Grammy. His label’s address is listed as “Berlin, in front of BND building, Germany.” And that’s about it. Sheikholeslami is clearly the sort to let his music speak for itself—and happily, it speaks eloquently. This is the second mixtape he’s produced for Hamburg’s V I S label, and like the first, it’s a strikingly original piece of curation.

How To Fix That Full Hard Drive


Mary from CA writes:

My PC shows that my hard drive disk is almost full. I have not added any new programs. I have deleted and it does not change! I have run the disk cleanup, and it does not change. Help!!!?

Hi, Mary.
A full hard drive can cause all kinds of problems for your machine, including but not limited to a slow computer and, ultimately, hard drive failure.


There are a number of possible reasons for this.


1)  It’s just FULL.

You just have too much stuff on your drive.  I had this problem several years ago, and found that the best solution for me was to move my personal files onto a removable hard drive.
Clean up is a great program, but it only removes unnecessary programs and files, and most of these are pretty small.  By removing your personal files to an external drive, you’d be clearing out a lot of hard drive space.


2)  You’ve got a virus.

Nasty bugs are everywhere these days, created by people with more computer knowledge than common sense.  I have one on my phone right now that I’m struggling to get rid of.  One variation of these things fills your hard drive with junk.  Disk clean-up doesn’t really help, because the thing can fill your hard drive as fast as you can empty it.  Some of these files are also listed as essential files, and so wouldn’t be deleted by clean-up.  The best solution to this is to make sure that you have a good, reputable anti-virus program on your computer.  Not something that you downloaded from a pop-up that says “YOUR COMPUTER HAS A VIRUS!  CLICK HERE TO FIX IT!”


3)  Your hard drive is failing


It happens to the best of us.  We get old, and things don’t work like they’re supposed to.  Average life for a hard drive these days is seven or eight years, but if you take care of your computer like you’re supposed to, it could last more than ten.  When a hard drive starts failing, it can throw off all kinds of incorrect and erroneous messages, including telling you it’s full when it’s not.  One clue to this is if your computer wants to do a disk check every time that you boot up.  If that’s the case, then you probably have multiple failed sectors on your disk and it’s time to replace it.  If it’s more than five years old, and nothing above works for you, you may consider replacing it anyway.


I hope that this helps.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019.
