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 (six 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.

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

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 (six 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

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?

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>??"

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Thursday, 20 July 2017 18:32 (four days ago) Permalink

No way, that's a real shame.

I'm listening to this survey Spotify mix from the label - https://open.spotify.com/user/1080pcollection/playlist/4qAgghzz4x2KeNFQ5UJyfC - I was sort of following their stuff at a distance, but really, it's an amazing label imo! I guess great labels can do a good job of capturing a sound and scene, and it seems like this really does it for the stoner retro-house scene in Vancouver, the graphic design is actually a big part of that too - sorta template Tumblr aesthetics...

Also surprised at the jungle-style beats on some of these releases, I know some showed up on ILM threads, but there's quite a vibe around ambient early d'n'b and jungle that is really a sweet spot.

MikoMcha, Thursday, 20 July 2017 18:34 (four days ago) Permalink

i liked some of the stuff on the label, feel like pacific rhythm has a p similar aesthetic if you like the vancouver thing. i'm sorta prejudiced against the scene in general for really petty reasons and never go to to any nights here.

i'm sorta prejudiced against the scene in general for really petty reasons and never go to to any nights here.

what petty reasons?? when i was in vancouvar a friend brought me to his studio in Deep Blue and later to a Pacific Rhythms party, i felt a frosty vibe from the ppl he introduced me too (tho I've heard that's just what ppl are like there) esp the kids at the studio all had that preppy normcore look which was kinda off-putting

flopson, Thursday, 20 July 2017 20:47 (four days ago) Permalink

A lot of people in Van are stuck in their own bubble and seem pretty unapproachable. There's good people of course, but I would hesitate to call it a friendly city

Week of Wonders (Ross), Thursday, 20 July 2017 20:51 (four days ago) Permalink

im moving there in 3 weeks forever :'(

flopson, Thursday, 20 July 2017 20:54 (four days ago) Permalink

my petty reasons are that I've met some people who are sort of that scene-adjacent and while these people were nice enough the vibe is definitely art-school normcore middle-class hipster, used to be in an indie band, or in a noise group, and then discovered dance music a few years ago sort of thing. vancouver nights are definitely frosty too. now i should probably just get the stick out my ass and go and try and have a good time but i think I've perhaps overly-romanticized the (imo fantastic) dance music culture of where I'm from - glasgow - and that's getting in my way of just embracing what's around me now and i am dumb

-_- (jim in vancouver), Thursday, 20 July 2017 20:59 (four days ago) Permalink

tl;dr - vancouver dance music isn't real enough for the authenticity boy

tbh I can't just instantly go from zero to dancing, usually involves kind of working my way into it and/or having a couple drinks, so if the crowd sucks and the drink service sucks the occasional misfire happens

Jim, I think your post has a lot of truth re: the music scene here. However, I think Vancouver perhaps doesn't have as much of a history of music in that sense that the UK does, so it's baby steps.
