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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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

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>??"

I really like that EP, we've been overdue a Metro Area revival

hehe - been trying to place who it reminds me of and there are certainly shades of metro area. also the detroit experiment. one of those great records where you listen to 15 seconds and the sound is so rich you know you're buying it, but after that each track just flows in its own way.

Bein' Sean Bean (LocalGarda), Sunday, 14 May 2017 21:16 (one month ago) Permalink

some stuff I've been feeling lately:

Francis Inferno Orchestra - Oasis (Celestial Body Mix). Dreamy breakbeat house that goes well with that Young Marco Italian house compilation.

Telephones - DTMF (Call Super Remix). Skippy house with a breakdown of shimmering chords, warped string pads and what sounds like a muted sample of a lorry reversing.

Jamie Lidell - When I Come Back Round (Matthew Herbert's Long Night Dub). Heads-down swirling deep house that makes me think of the mid 00s when Kompakt and Villalobos were still building their reputations, and not even Lidell's best Jamiroquai impression can spoil it.

Michael Mayer & Joe Goddard - For You (DJ Koze Mbira Mix). Marred by indie mumbling but the kind of euphoric wistfulness that Koze excels at.

Space Dimension Controller - Exostack. To me this sounds like an early rave producer trying to make a classy disco track.

boxedjoy, Sunday, 14 May 2017 21:46 (one month ago) Permalink

a few more

Oxia - Domino (Robag's Lasika Cafa Nb Remix). I don't hear anything in this that sounds like the original, but it sounds like Robag Wruhme at his usual standard.

Lord Of The Isles - Sunrise 89. This would be ambient house if it wasn't for the menacing tone in the low end. The EP this is from is really good, I like it more than the album he released.

Fred P - 6am. All three tracks on Instinctive Rhythms are good but this is my favourite - thumping tech-house with hooks and sounds sharpening in and out of focus.

Isolee - Pisco. Does anyone still think about that amazing My My album from a decade ago?

Baba Stiltz - Are You Mad? Cause I'm Not Mad... A bassline indebted to "French Kiss" with warm chords.

I'm really shook by the sudden death of Marcus Kaye / Trevino. I'm not really a DnB guy, so can't talk to his Marcus Intalex stuff, but I sincerely think he was behind a lot of the most exciting techno I'd heard in the 2010s ("Backtracking" for instance, is one of my favourite recent techno tracks), and was looking forward to the second part of his Front/Back album.

Anyways, very sad. R.I.P.

Both of the Vlad Caia mixes of this are good. The kind of record you leave behind then when you get home it somehow managed to come back with you, takes a little bit of while to get comfortable but then its there. I'm not sure if I'd play this one over the tannoy though
