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 (thirteen years ago) link

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

moonship journey to baja, Wednesday, 7 March 2007 07:27 (thirteen years ago) link

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

does anyone have the My My or Stephan Bodzin?

jabba hands, Wednesday, 7 March 2007 09:25 (thirteen years ago) link

i got de stephan bodzin...wil upload later.

the table is the table, Wednesday, 7 March 2007 13:33 (thirteen years ago) link

What does "U+K" mean?

Anyone have the Âme one?

The Brainwasher, Wednesday, 7 March 2007 23:09 (thirteen years ago) link

i actually am uploading the bodzin one right now, do not fret.

the table is the table, Wednesday, 7 March 2007 23:18 (thirteen years ago) link

Ame

Can I do this, or is it against ILX's YSI policy?

everything counts in large amounts

the table is the table, Thursday, 8 March 2007 02:18 (thirteen years ago) link

i say since it technically WAS for free and in the public domain (with registration) originally, it doesn't matter.

I have the Ewan Pearson if anyone wants it. And can anyone upload Heidi's pls?

braveclub, Thursday, 8 March 2007 13:32 (thirteen years ago) link

yes. i'd take the ewan pearson although i could just grab it from the site linked above and i now have like 6 of these i haven't listened to yet.

artdamages, Thursday, 8 March 2007 13:45 (thirteen years ago) link

whoops, didn't check the link above.

braveclub, Thursday, 8 March 2007 13:50 (thirteen years ago) link

the podcasts are amazing....some of the writing on the site is deplorable tho...

Ronan, Thursday, 8 March 2007 13:59 (thirteen years ago) link

yeah i have been to the site and didnt find it that appealing (i find it more useful to read reviews of dance music from dance merchants anyway), but i will be singing up for the podcasts now!

artdamages, Thursday, 8 March 2007 14:47 (thirteen years ago) link

some of the writing on the site is deplorable tho...

you should have seen it before i edited it

good dog, Thursday, 8 March 2007 17:20 (thirteen years ago) link

examples pls

J@cob, Thursday, 8 March 2007 17:59 (thirteen years ago) link

dunno...just a lot of stuff that seems like "the sun was shining and i had just bought a burrito. then i remembered today was the day i was interviewing michael mayer. i went to the bus stop and waited for the bus for approximately 25 minutes. eventually it came and transported me to the location where the interview was due to take place, the interview with michael mayer. what a happy day"

Ronan, Thursday, 8 March 2007 18:20 (thirteen years ago) link

lolz - as a matter of fact I'm just editing you now. it's taking me aaaages

good dog, Thursday, 8 March 2007 18:22 (thirteen years ago) link

oops, shit Ronan is talking about, er, me i think

good dog, Thursday, 8 March 2007 18:26 (thirteen years ago) link

ronan besides your blog do you write for any publications available online

artdamages, Thursday, 8 March 2007 18:30 (thirteen years ago) link

a little for the Guardian and also recently did a few things for Pitchfork, and a little for Earplug also.

Ronan, Thursday, 8 March 2007 18:34 (thirteen years ago) link

the Guardian stuff isn't music tho

Ronan, Thursday, 8 March 2007 18:35 (thirteen years ago) link

oh cool. i get earplug, but im sometimes to lazy to read it.

artdamages, Thursday, 8 March 2007 18:41 (thirteen years ago) link

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 (thirteen years ago) link

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 (thirteen years ago) link

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 :)

good dog, Thursday, 8 March 2007 20:33 (thirteen years ago) link

one month passes...
Can someone upload the Heidi RA mix for me please? The link upthread doesn't work anymore.

braveclub, Wednesday, 11 April 2007 09:57 (thirteen years ago) link

DEAR GOD

moonship journey to baja, Thursday, 12 April 2007 00:44 (thirteen years ago) link

is it worth registering at RA for it? i hate registering for shit

gbx, Thursday, 12 April 2007 00:49 (thirteen years ago) link

uh ... i don't think i reg'd to subscribe to the podcast

moonship journey to baja, Thursday, 12 April 2007 00:55 (thirteen years ago) link

it says i have to :(

gbx, Thursday, 12 April 2007 00:56 (thirteen years ago) link

wait, itunes has it.


YAY

gbx, Thursday, 12 April 2007 00:57 (thirteen years ago) link

You don't have to subscribe, either, you can just download the ones you're interested in straight from their itunes page.

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

haitch, Thursday, 12 April 2007 03:53 (thirteen years ago) link

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 (thirteen years ago) link

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

31g, Thursday, 12 April 2007 05:47 (thirteen years ago) link

When will Dan Selzer do a Resident Advisor podcast?

Tim F, Thursday, 12 April 2007 06:31 (thirteen years ago) link

the public demands it!!

haitch, Thursday, 12 April 2007 06:51 (thirteen years ago) link

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.

Ronan, Thursday, 12 April 2007 09:33 (thirteen years ago) link

Michael Ho or Samim!

Someone from the Jesse Rose/Switch/Sinden cabal - presumably Jesse as he is more RA-style tasteful than the other two.

It's all going off on Twitter now, they've donated five hundred dollars towards George Floyd/Minnesota while it's claimed they turned over a profit of nearly five million last year

boxedjoy, Monday, 1 June 2020 20:55 (two months ago) link

It's hard to imagine they're so successful! But what do I know...the site is clearly a loss leader, I guess all those festivals/events are lucrative?

change display name (Jordan), Monday, 1 June 2020 20:58 (two months ago) link

yeah it's been blowing my mind, I'm not sure I believe it tbh but at the same time they pretty much have a dominance in ticket sales for dance events don't they

boxedjoy, Monday, 1 June 2020 21:02 (two months ago) link

i'm guessing that ticketing agencies and festival organisers alike are having a particularly rough time financially at the moment - zero income and a shit load of refunds to make. but they do need to address this current situation and explain themselves

Boris the Spreader (NickB), Monday, 1 June 2020 21:21 (two months ago) link

here's their tweet btw if anyone wants to read it. it is a pitiful amount:

the dj tennis podcast/mix is totally hitting the spot for me.
not really a mix to be honest, just a 70 minute ambient house sonic collage of his own material/field recordings.
the last section dives into a glorious krautrock groove.

mark e, Friday, 19 June 2020 18:03 (one month ago) link

Yeah that one's good and I usually find DJ Tennis pretty dull.

lukas, Monday, 13 July 2020 19:12 (three weeks ago) link

I’ve got more thoughts, but in brief: yes, this is the type of thing I want to read more of

another panel @ Unsound got distributed by RA via their podcast series but this one was not, and went hard on some similar issues:
http://truantsblog.com/2020/unsound-2019-complicity-accountability-agency-counterculture/

I was in the audience for most of it and was just locked in

solo scampito (mh), Monday, 13 July 2020 21:55 (three weeks ago) link

I think RA actually solicited a year-end piece from DeForrest Brown Jr. that he ended up self-publishing because they decided not to run it

solo scampito (mh), Monday, 13 July 2020 21:58 (three weeks ago) link

had not seen but looks like timely and valuable scholarship, thanks

the late great, Monday, 13 July 2020 22:00 (three weeks ago) link

One of the things I liked most about it was its specificity - who didn't get covered, which structures contributed to their exclusion, etc. It was clear but very dense. vs say the Quietus piece recently which was fine as far as it went, but did we need much more than "why are these rich white house producers getting so much attention"

lukas, Monday, 13 July 2020 22:02 (three weeks ago) link

yeah i do wonder with its uk focus how much sense it will make to me ... would be interested to see someone to do this for like, los angeles and the us scene in general, though our electronic music press and scene are much more marginal

the late great, Monday, 13 July 2020 22:05 (three weeks ago) link

That R.O.S.H. letter is incredible. I'm sorry i missed it until now - how long has it been online?

so much i agree with but also so much eye opening food for thought, and hopefully food for change.

stirmonster, Monday, 13 July 2020 23:17 (three weeks ago) link

the single RA writer singled out is the one I, admittedly, have spotted the most at events I’ve been at. I think it’s odd he’d have even been assigned to cover some of those events/scenes due to locale (NA vs UK/Europe/etc)

solo scampito (mh), Monday, 13 July 2020 23:59 (three weeks ago) link

not sure how long it's been online, just saw it today, but since I'm in California assumed it had made the rounds already.

lukas, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 00:32 (two weeks ago) link

this article is just so good

saer, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 06:05 (two weeks ago) link

RA has always seemed to have a particular blind spot for black British dance music, I always assumed that was the readership talking. They were more likely to offer a mix to someone with a successful techno night in Ljubljana than they were to someone like Supa D or or Ill Blu or Marcus Nasty. They would however quite happily run one by someone like Oneman or BokBok or Jam City or any other white producer using those scenes as a jump-off point. Terror Danjah did get a mix (and a great one), probably due to being on Hyberdub, but it was an outlier and I remember the comments box being a disaster zone.

The quote from Kode9 in particularly really encapsulates the problem with viewing black British dance music through the prism of labels like Hyperdub, in its own way that privileges artists with a particular aesthetic. Black artists who made music that was dark and bassy or moody and aggro were much more likely to get access to those publicity networks because they were much more likely to get onto those labels in the first place than artists whose music was joyful, celebratory, gleefully silly let alone anything that was soulful or smooth.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 14 July 2020 11:43 (two weeks ago) link

xp saer, mutek festival in montreal and an inga copeland show in brooklyn are the two I remember

solo scampito (mh), Tuesday, 14 July 2020 12:43 (two weeks ago) link

it's easier to hit the targets of coverage of music of Black origin when you run barely any articles

Yep absolutely. But this is not an issue limited to RA.

One only has to visit the uk funky, jackin' house or deep tech threads on ILX to see a variety of positions taken consistent with what is called out in the article:

1. What is this music which sounds like a desecration of of the more refined dance music I prefer? Vomit emoji.

2. I refuse to engage fully with this music unless and until it begins to be distributed and disseminated through the media channels I prefer and feel comfortable with.

3. I object to this music being discussed as if it comprises a concrete "scene".

4. I like this music! Especially (insert name of mostly-unrelated artist with a release on Hyperdub or similar).

5. This music is not sustainable on its own but I don't mind it when it's mixed in with broader strains of house, techno or post-dubstep.

Tim F, Wednesday, 15 July 2020 00:00 (two weeks ago) link

yeah but it’s still ok not to like things

the late great, Wednesday, 15 July 2020 00:50 (two weeks ago) link

there's not liking things and then there's dismissing the possibility that a scene could have any aesthetic validity or worth based on zero or thirty seconds' worth of evidence and a determined-belief that there can never be anything new under the sun that the listener does not alreayd know about.

Tim F, Wednesday, 15 July 2020 01:33 (two weeks ago) link

good list, Tim. I’m guilty of at least a couple of those sentiments on occasion

solo scampito (mh), Wednesday, 15 July 2020 12:50 (two weeks ago) link

yeah I tried funky house verrrry briefly and then noped out ... I should give it another go.

lukas, Wednesday, 15 July 2020 17:25 (two weeks ago) link

in retrospect kind of telling that the uk funky thread is even titled in reaction to "skeptics"

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Friday, 17 July 2020 19:38 (two weeks ago) link

wait never mind...has it always been titled "sceptics"? this is like a berenstain bears thing

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Friday, 17 July 2020 19:39 (two weeks ago) link

DJ Perception on the podcast is both great to listen to and a great indication of where the new approach could take them. But then they're wheeling out a Boy In Da Corner revisit, an album that there really can't be much more left to say anything about.
