Amorf3, the collaboration between SIT and pianist Mischa Blanos still unreleased, some time later this year. Still no official clips of it, but here's a couple of clips of it out in the wild last year

I really like The Black Madonna as a force within dance music and her presence feels vital when so much of the culture is being dominated by white straight men. But I wish I liked her music as much as I like her politics.

what's not to like about super competent disco edits?

the late great, Thursday, 19 January 2017 22:11 (eight months ago) Permalink

I mean in theory I like the idea of something that sounds like "He Is The Voice..." but it comes off a little too studied and forced. Compared to something like eg Floorplan's "Tell You No Lie" there's a lack of a certain kind of ramshackle energy.

"Exodus" is the one that really leaves me cold, I think it manages to lose everything that makes the source material so joyful and uplifting.

boxedjoy, Thursday, 19 January 2017 22:33 (eight months ago) Permalink

yeah, longer 'he is the voice' goes on the more its ersatz inexpertise comes thru

discussion of the new black madonna got quite heated in the RA comments box! first time i've ever seen an RA thread locked ...

the late great, Monday, 23 January 2017 19:44 (eight months ago) Permalink

was the RA discussion about the black madonna's name? have long thought it was a dubious choice. i remember when i first heard of her squinting at photos thinking "well...maybe she's just very light-skinned...?"

has an ra comment thread ever been that progressive, ime the discourse is usually at the level of a shitty subreddit

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Monday, 23 January 2017 19:48 (eight months ago) Permalink

some of the discussion was about her name, some of it was about whether she was an obnoxious person (i.e. is she too poltiical for her own good) and some of it was along the lines of this thread (are her tracks good pastiche or bad pastiche)

not sure why the thread was locked actually since it seemed pretty tame, i imagine there must have been some more offensive comments that got deleted

the late great, Monday, 23 January 2017 19:54 (eight months ago) Permalink

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Madonna

according to a professor of medieval art history i know (my sister) the question of whether the black madonna actually represents a black person has been in active debate for more than 500 years

so i guess i am willing to give her a pass?

I was going to make an attempt to describe the discussion level, and this is pretty much perfect

mh 😏, Monday, 23 January 2017 20:51 (eight months ago) Permalink

the comments griping about chicago having better djs that aren't booked, etc, always straddles the line between a possible real complaint and people just making random accusations

it's like, is the commenter actually part of this scene or a dj and has failed to get booked at smart bar, or do they know someone who has been rejected, or are they just pissed because the black madonna gets booked other places instead of whatever dj they want to see

it reminds me of the classic complaints on local places where someone would ask "why are you booking this local guy again and not <insert international superstar dj>??"

mh 😏, Monday, 23 January 2017 20:55 (eight months ago) Permalink

like some street festival a decade ago booked talent from outside town using whatever ad money they got from the local scion car dealership and someone is asking why they didn't get tiesto

I'll give them credit, they did get some reasonable names over the years, but there was a hard pivot from "90s d&b hangover" to "edm enthusiast" in their target audience

this Karen Gwyer is probably the best techno release I've heard this year. Kind of Actress-y in places, but more overtly dancey and playful.

Another good one, though a bit more all over the place, is this Information Flash. Mostly weirdo techno, but has some breakbeat/dnb stuff on there as well

I am finding good stuff on the RA Tracks page this week, but it's a pain because they haven't implemented an auto-play feature so you have to keep tabbing back to start the next song.

Anyway, I always like this kind of pop/techno crossover stuff, and there's a good new track by some Norwegians called SASSY 009 which maybe belongs here: https://soundcloud.com/sassy009/pretty-baby-3

In the same vein, this came up on my Hype Machine feed, and it's a cut above what else I've heard from this group: https://bluehawaii.bandcamp.com/track/no-one-like-you
