    All the venues I play at have turntables that are regularly used.

    I think (as someone mentioned earlier) it mainly comes down to the sort of nights and age of the DJ’s :D

    Then you'd be wrong. Many of the DJs in those clubs are in their 20s and 30s.

    It's really not just a 'London thing.' There's loads of people under 40 who prefer to DJ on vinyl.

    Well, they’re not in any of the venues I’m working in...

    I'm sure they're not but that doesn't mean that people under 40 aren't still DJing on vinyl, does it?

    There will be always be some of course, but I’d wager they’re gonna be a pretty small minority.

    theres a shitload of places, in London especially, marketing 'vinyl only' as one of the main selling points... normally as part of an experience, brunch and an vintage artisan hifi from Audio Gold normally feature as well.

    So you keep saying. But my experience - and my eyes! - tells me differently. As pesh says, there's plenty of venues promoting 'vinyl only' nights and I write about loads of them every month.

    In Leeds, any bar that's not a cheese fest dive/meat market has turntables.

    Enviro Make your assessment

    I like this analogy.

    It also fits in with my consideration that, though e-cigs are a faf and a learning curve, they are actually simpler to use than ordinary cigarette (compared to rolling your own at least). With a charged e-cig you just turn it on and press a button. To roll a fag you need at least two separate materials (three if you use roach/ filter), you need to make the thing, etc.

    So yeah. Analogue - tangible, easily serviceable, unlikely to go wrong, more of a ritual.
    Digital - less tangible, less easily serviceable, more likely to go wrong? Well, more likely to be more of a pain in the arse when it does go wrong. ...
