is anything more U+K in dance music right now than resident advisor's podcasts?

moonship journey to baja, Wednesday, 7 March 2007 07:24 (eleven years ago) Permalink

we can also make this the place for YSI requests for archived podcasts

i hardly ever get around to downloading these. but i agree with the thread premise in theory!

thinking over what Ronan said about pointless intros - are you refering to this piece? http://www.residentadvisor.net/feature_view.asp?ID=796 Certainly it was a risky move starting the article with the idea that the dude didn't recognise the interviewer (I mean who gives a crap? sounds like the usual self-centered rubbish), but there was actually a strong point to it about mayer and Kompakt - they're an international business now and being all over the place is no biggie for him. probably hurt the piece because it seems pointless and naval gazing and people didn't read on. you live and learn.

good dog, Thursday, 8 March 2007 19:39 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I didn't mean to have a go at anyone personally, just plucked that idea out of the sky...I did find that piece a bit meandering but a lot of the stuff just feels a little erratic at times. Maybe other people don't feel the same. I know my own writing is not perfect I just think that with such amazing podcasts that are so on it I expect the writing to be really clever and to come from a position of authority. It's like someone is in charge of the podcasts and a whole other team handles the site.

Ronan, Thursday, 8 March 2007 20:13 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Yes, you're right. That's exactly how it is at the moment. But there are some changes in the works - there's a shift going on away from a fan-based site to something really worthwhile. It's a mammoth task getting an online magazine together - now some things are good and some still erratic but we are improving I think. Part of that is having the best writers on board to make the writing and criticism authoritative and interesting. Of course Ronan if you're interested in helping out in some way shape or form, we'd be delighted to hear from you, but you knew i'd say that :)

the joakim and tim sweeney and dixon and maurice fulton ones were all fantastic.

haitch, Thursday, 12 April 2007 03:53 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I think what's quite unusual about the podcast series is that it's so consistently fashionable - not only all the minimal sets but the way they've cornered the disco/deeep axis - Fulton, Schwarz, Dixon, Ame, Joakim... Plus the ocassional deep detroit sets (Watson, Redshape).

Almost inevitable (but highly anticipated) future podcasts:

- Sydenham or Ferrer
- someone from Rong/Full Pupp/Bear Funk, if not actually Chicken Lips or Idjut Boys
- Kaos
- Martin Buttrich

Who else?

Tim F, Thursday, 12 April 2007 05:20 (eleven years ago) Permalink

The Schwarz podcast is really incredibly good, I was listening to the second half of it today.

haha...or Optimo surely will do one someday.

Other DJs I'd like to see doing an RA podcast, Anja Schneider or someone from Mobilee not in live mode. Ralf Kollmann who runs the label is also a very good DJ.

I can't think of too many more, almost everyone has done one already! It's pretty funny actually, the likes of Fabric must despise the RA podcasts.

i'm fairly sure i don't like much of what dixon has been playing for the last 3/4 years, tho not paid much attention, most of that crew seem to have gravitated towards a sort of prog nouveau

equally i think it's good he became massively popular solely on the basis of djing with barely any production along the way - for a long time he was one of the best selectors and 100 times better than the producer-centric crap that passes for dance music or dj sets on this board.

don't read much on the site but pod + https://www.residentadvisor.net/tracks are essential

i didn't realize their eoy lists were crowdsourced/reader polls; surprisingly good if that's true. but re these concerns they should just switch to editorial list and hire more non-whitemale writers

the top dj list is a complete ouroboros, much like a lot of dj lists. there’s no easy solution, but when high profile events feel they have to have top-ranked djs, and then the attendees are the same who vote in polls for top dj, just creates a death spiral. uncreative promoters who have large events and have money but no curation skills aren’t helping

Not really sure who you mean by that last sentence but while he was an amazing DJ I'm not sure he'd have been able to build his rep in the same way if he wasn't so closely associated with Innervisions. Like he was a fantastic remixer (the Mark E mix in particular I still love), but it feels like he was able to come up at least partly off the back of Ame and Henrik Schwarz's production works, before completely eclipsing them as a DJ.

Dunno what he's playing now but if I had to guess he's moved towards a more Tale of Us-type festival friendly thing?

Can we have a Search & Destroy on the podcasts from this year? I think I listened to every single one up until about April or May and then tailed off. A lot of fairly nondescript grey warehouse techno in there.

Matt DC, Saturday, 25 November 2017 11:59 (one year ago) Permalink

still not the same, to me, as the usual route of becoming famous for a few productions and then becoming a hugely popular dj for being okay at it. he was doing it for a long time before the huge popularity too. he dj'ed his way to the top more than many of the rest of these lists.

as i say, don't care for him now but he's done enough good stuff to merit respect.

Bein' Sean Bean (LocalGarda), Saturday, 25 November 2017 12:28 (one year ago) Permalink

Yeah fair enough, I just looked at their 2016 list and it's full of those sorts of names, unsurprised they canned the poll tbh. I guess production means a shortcut onto the festival circuit for a lot of these guys and that's how they end up there. The overlap between that poll and the group of DJs who seem to be on every other European festival bill is massive as well.

Matt DC, Saturday, 25 November 2017 12:43 (one year ago) Permalink

I've not really connected with any of the podcasts in a long while, even the ones from DJ's I like (Saoirse, Del Garda). Whenever it does pop up that there's a new podcast it always seems to be someone called Blarg or Morlock playing DVS1 records. This is what happens when you let people have black and white photos for their profile

I don't get into many of the podcasts either, the only ones I remember from this year are Egyptrixx and M.E.S.H. (both great). I really like their features and interviews though.

Some of the Exchange podcasts are worthwhile too.

No headphone today but I see Etienne has done number 602. I liked his record on Undersound last year so hopefully this has some cheeky miscreants downing pints in deckchairs or failing that some records with moody dockers with dangerous dogs is also acceptable as long as they have a heart of gold and hats askew

OBJEKT https://www.residentadvisor.net/podcast-episode.aspx?id=650

Can you tell us about the idea behind the mix?

In my sets over the past year or two I've grown increasingly comfortable going into extended wormholes where I'll spend 30-40 minutes layering all kinds of broken, trippy, floaty, confounding, sometimes polyrhythmic tracks on top of one another—tracks that still have a danceable pulse but where the rhythms shift focus, and you sometimes you can't even tell where the "1" is at all.

If I follow this thread to its most self-indulgent extremity I end up in my "no-kick rollers" folder, which contains what it says on the tin—propulsive club tracks with no kick drum—and I've had a lot of fun recently, when faced with an adventurous enough crowd, delving into this folder and trying to keep people dancing for as long as possible without playing any tracks with kick drums.

It's not a new concept—techno producers have been making arpeggio tracks for decades and Barker made a particularly stunning EP earlier this year specifically consisting of tracks like this. But I've been collecting material in this vein for a few years now and have always wanted to make a full-length mix of it—and have only recently felt I might actually have enough tracks to make it work. Stringing tracks like this together in a musically coherent way is quite challenging, since without the kick drums you're often entirely reliant on melodic elements to keep the momentum going, which poses difficulties not just in maintaining a steady energy level but also making sure you can avoid horrendous key clashes and so on. It also really helps if you can mix tracks in on 3+ turntables to allow you to fill in the gaps left by the lack of kicks. So it took quite a lot of planning and quite a few takes to get it right.

The result is, IMO, probably not something you'd wanna stick on over dinner—it's a more challenging listen and less obviously "party" than other mixes I've done, and it gets quite sparse at some points and intense at others. But it's definitely unlike any mix I've done before and I'm really happy with it as a piece of music and a proof of concept.

so, they're killing the comment section. can't blame them, because to effectively have comments on a site you need: a.) a defined policy on what's allowed/disallowed and b.) consistent enforcement, meaning someone has to keep an eye on things and act in a way that's subject to review

(b) is really difficult, especially if you're lacking the resources for community management (or it's not your primary goal, since you're publishing reviews/editorial). but I cynically think that (a) comes into play because while they're 100% in the right to advance views from diverse voices and argue for inclusion, a lot of discussion that was well-meaning got nuked because no one has time to sort through all that nonsense

mh, Thursday, 3 January 2019 15:22 (one month ago) Permalink

99% of comments on any website are trash and I think part of the reason Pitchfork has continued to assert dominance in the online music review world is that it has never allowed comments. The RA comments were always particularly dispiriting, "keep identity politics out of dance music it has no place", "actually Ten Walls should be allowed to express an opinion", "who cares if Nina Kraviz can't DJ she is hot"

boxedjoy, Thursday, 3 January 2019 19:51 (one month ago) Permalink

yup

there were some good ones here and there, but the moderation was so scattershot that a couple stray misogynist comments meant the comments were turned off for the thread in the last few months

Fact did the same on their YouTube channel a while back - for a similar reason. They’d just attract dozens and dozens of misogynistic comments about them covering too many women.

Dan what is it you enjoyed about the commments? I can't ever really remember seeing anything particuarly interesting happening outside of the misogyny, a lot of it in my experience was just "yeah nice one" "top tune this" "love the b-side" "too low a score" generic fan praise

boxedjoy, Saturday, 5 January 2019 08:42 (one month ago) Permalink

comments sections in general are thoroughly obsolete, back in the '90s everybody got all excited about the possibilities of the *world wide web* and building *community* and it was fairly easy to implement and it took people a couple decades to realize that creating a community was a lot of work that required an entirely different skillset from creating content, and that if you don't do that work any "community" you create is likely just going to be a, 2016 throwback incoming, dumpster fire.
