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 (ten 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 (ten months ago) Permalink

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 (ten 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 (ten 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 ๐Ÿ˜, Monday, 23 January 2017 20:51 (ten 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 ๐Ÿ˜, Monday, 23 January 2017 20:55 (ten 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

it reminds me of the good kompakt total compilations in terms of overall quality. also something about the sound and its relationship to techno reminds me of kompakt's relationship to minimal house. it sharpens and expands it.

map, Sunday, 15 October 2017 06:48 (one month ago) Permalink

an example is "perdita" by jay clarke, which is a really good minimal wave / punk track dressed in the finest techno outerwear.

map, Sunday, 15 October 2017 06:52 (one month ago) Permalink

lots of gorgeousness and distilled funkiness going on. there's something about a good techno track that is basically funky imo. it's hard to my finger on it, like it's not just a good 808 clave pattern, it can be how the frequencies of everything land. an example of not-funky and kind of bad techno is this new atomTM release. the samples sounded promising but there's just no sense of funk at all, the tracks are ponderous and overstuffed and they lose their impact and fall flat imo.
