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 newest one by Vince Watson is also great.

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

What does "U+K" mean?

matt2, Wednesday, 7 March 2007 18:10 (thirteen years ago) link

undanceable + kooky

Here's the My My one.

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?

31g, Thursday, 8 March 2007 01:18 (thirteen years ago) link

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.

good dog, Thursday, 8 March 2007 02:24 (thirteen years ago) link

are there tracklistings for these anywhere?

artdamages, Thursday, 8 March 2007 13:24 (thirteen years ago) link

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

the alexander robotnick mix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Telephone thing, Thursday, 12 April 2007 03:34 (thirteen years ago) link

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.

Tim F, Thursday, 12 April 2007 10:08 (thirteen years ago) link

SEEK: SWITCH covermount CD for mixmag

about 10000000000x better than the semi-boring jesse rose "body language"

(was it just me, or was it really boring??)

moonship journey to baja, Thursday, 12 April 2007 10:09 (thirteen years ago) link

It took me far too long to get the gag in his name.

chap, Thursday, 17 December 2020 17:54 (one month ago) link

never even thought there was a gag tbh.
Tim rhymes with Grim ?
nice to see-n-hear Pete Cannon in the mix.
as per the other thread, i am loving Petes productions that are made via octamed/amiga1200.
this is totally hitting the spot.

mark e, Thursday, 17 December 2020 18:08 (one month ago) link

wait did tim reaper get canceled? or jungle? or ra?

the late great, Thursday, 17 December 2020 20:12 (one month ago) link

i don't really know tim reaper but i've heard the name because he records with another of my favorite current jungle artists (kid lib) and i see some other names i am really into on that mix (coco bryce, FFF, ricky force, dead man's chest)

i guess i don't follow the labels he's on, except for green bay wax and foxy jangle

the late great, Thursday, 17 December 2020 20:17 (one month ago) link

canceled? Yeah I like Tim reaper’s music, shit owns, what’s up?

brimstead, Thursday, 17 December 2020 22:22 (one month ago) link

ohhhh I think Mark means RA in general

brimstead, Thursday, 17 December 2020 22:22 (one month ago) link

but yeah great producer, coco Bryce rules too..

brimstead, Thursday, 17 December 2020 22:23 (one month ago) link

Idk if RA is canceled but I enjoyed the recent Jamz Supernova mix

i was referring to the last post in the thread prior to my extras.
and yeah, its a great 90m min mix.
bring on the jungle revival for 2021.

kites aren't fun (NickB), Tuesday, 5 January 2021 23:36 (three weeks ago) link

i guess it's optimised for phones but it looks lame on this screen

kites aren't fun (NickB), Tuesday, 5 January 2021 23:40 (three weeks ago) link

lame and pointless and the write-up they've published on how/why they did it is awful

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 07:43 (three weeks ago) link

A lot about RA has come to make more sense since I realized that they probably make most of their money off ticket sales, so my guess is it has more to do with reorganizing the back-end to serve ticket sales and orienting users toward engaging more with that aspect of the site. It kind of just looks more like FACT and Pitchfork ca mid 2015s, kind of boring and pretty inoffensive, but hard to see it inspiring strong feelings in any direction. I dunno if it's pointless as much as web technology evolves extremely quickly and websites change.

ed.b, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 16:39 (three weeks ago) link

Apparently DJs are mad that they got rid of their DJ charts, which I never looked at. How did those work?

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 6 January 2021 16:56 (three weeks ago) link

they were at the bottom of the page, they were literally just lists with no links, they often had (Unreleased) by the names of songs, completely pointless

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 17:03 (three weeks ago) link

Did DJs just make their own lists, or were they generated from tracklists somehow?

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 6 January 2021 17:11 (three weeks ago) link

they were dj-submitted, but I got the impression they were very sporadically updated

mh, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 17:13 (three weeks ago) link

I sometimes checked DJ charts back in, like 2008, before countless better ways of sharing tracks were common. Lately it was mostly generic tech-house or business techno DJs who probably gained more from having having their name visible on the homepage. I'm sure a few people check them but they are pretty pointless, and my feeling is that DJs that are actually mad probably need to bring their ego down.

ed.b, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 17:21 (three weeks ago) link

by last year, there was an entire ongoing debate about tracking of played tracks, digital paythrough, attribution, etc. and it’s probably easier at this point to sidestep the entire business by just putting the track lists on the podcast dj sets and ignore the rest entirely

mh, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 17:33 (three weeks ago) link

RA can do no right these day.
Problem is, with the demise of the blogs, there's almost nowhere to go for electronic music news / reviews / articles etc.

millmeister, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 18:10 (three weeks ago) link

it's good to see they put all that government money they got to such good use.

stirmonster, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 18:29 (three weeks ago) link

there's almost nowhere to go for electronic music news / reviews / articles etc

really?!?

stirmonster, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 18:31 (three weeks ago) link

In their post about the new site they said that the Arts Council grant wasn't used for this.

millmeister, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 18:36 (three weeks ago) link

xp I can hardly think of any. FACT has gone to shit. The Quietus is good but not exclusively dance. Crack Magazine is okay. The Ransom Note is okay but can't say I look at it much. That's about it. But I'm open to recommendations.

millmeister, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 18:50 (three weeks ago) link

yeah a few months ago i was like "i'm looking forward to the fact year-end list" and only last week did i realize fact is now a completely different website

sucks

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Wednesday, 6 January 2021 18:52 (three weeks ago) link

Yeah, Fact is basically just a YouTube channel now

and yes, i am conscious that selection is almost definitely lacking in a diversity of voices, so recommendations outside of that pov would be welcome

kites aren't fun (NickB), Wednesday, 6 January 2021 19:13 (three weeks ago) link

Yup Test Pressing is great. Forgot about that one. Will check the others thanks.

millmeister, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 19:15 (three weeks ago) link

also Attack magazine, but that's mostly music tech:

kites aren't fun (NickB), Wednesday, 6 January 2021 19:16 (three weeks ago) link

ok. i withdraw my comment about the government money.

i guess all the sites i was going to mention get mentioned above. there aren't a ton i'll concede but deffo a fair few. i guess it is dependent on what way one's taste skews.

stirmonster, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 19:18 (three weeks ago) link

To be fair, FACT was always pretty shitty.

ed.b, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 19:36 (three weeks ago) link

in its defence, it was shitty in quite an interesting way. also chal ravens was/is awesome

kites aren't fun (NickB), Wednesday, 6 January 2021 19:40 (three weeks ago) link

FACT was great in its original incarnation.

Who could resist stuff like this? - https://www.factmag.com/2010/11/02/20-best-goth/

also chal ravens was/is awesome

I second this.

stirmonster, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 19:52 (three weeks ago) link

https://banbantonton.com/ was a recent discovery for me that I'll recommend for mostly balearic coverage. I will stan for FACT under Kiran Sande's editorial reign when they threw enough curveballs into the listicle/clickbait content to keep things interesting.

Federico Boswarlos, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 19:59 (three weeks ago) link

banbantonton is nice, it's one of the old testpressing guys I think

Bongo Jongus, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 20:36 (three weeks ago) link

yeah BBTT is Dr Rob formerly of Test Pressing.

Stamp The Wax is good, their Monday mixtapes are excellent. In general I tend to follow writers than sites though - for every decent Ravens piece on RA there's one of those terrible no-insight Rewind reviews that seems generated by AI.

I still remember when FACT ran that "top ten gayest Ritchie Hawtin moments" article, hard to take them seriously since.

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 21:27 (three weeks ago) link

Have only ever read Chal in places other than RA.

stirmonster, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 21:31 (three weeks ago) link

Chal is great. Sometimes I look at Insert for tracks. Electronicbeats.net had some good editorial for a little while. Bandcamp editorial has some good round-up columns, not a lot of writing though (just short capsules). Mostly I just follow people on Twitter and Bandcamp (good for actually finding music, but yeah music writing is in a scattered and sorry state rn). Seems like some good writers are moving to the newsletter format though.

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 6 January 2021 21:54 (three weeks ago) link

Ray Philp is another name who'll I will always read

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 23:18 (three weeks ago) link

"Who'll I will" I don't even know what grammatic rule I was trying to follow there

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 6 January 2021 23:19 (three weeks ago) link

Thanks so much for all these recommendations. I also was lost on good sites for electronic music since music blogs died. ResidentAdvisor used to be the one I frequented the most but I don’t think I got too much out of it in 2020.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 7 January 2021 04:17 (two weeks ago) link

to be fair I don't think anyone was getting much of dance music culture in 2020 and everywhere seems to have a pivot towards music designed for home-listening (as if you can't and wouldn't listen to Proper Dancing Music around the house etc)

boxedjoy, Thursday, 7 January 2021 09:53 (two weeks ago) link

i'll second Ray Philp too.

stirmonster, Thursday, 7 January 2021 11:36 (two weeks ago) link

change display name (Jordan), Thursday, 7 January 2021 16:55 (two weeks ago) link

And the Bandcloud newsletter is great, although I certainly don't always have time to go through it.

change display name (Jordan), Friday, 8 January 2021 16:09 (two weeks ago) link

i realize this has been discussed but wowww the new RA redesign... holy shit is it dull to look at. it's reminiscent of default wordpress themes circa 2016. thank u to all who posted links to alternatives, i will be visiting them.

davey, Sunday, 17 January 2021 18:36 (one week ago) link

other than the mix series RA is useless to me now that they abandoned the tracks feature. do any of these other sites have something similar? just soundcloud links to like 10-20 new tracks a day posted with minimal description. tracks was a good midpoint between beatport which is too much of a hose to the face for me and their reviews section which is too curated

flopson, Sunday, 17 January 2021 22:32 (one week ago) link

best i can recommend is to follow a bunch of labels and artists you like on soundcloud, and use this greasemonkey script to hide reposts so you only see what they're originally posting: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/13566-soundcloud-hide-reposts

it's dumb that you can't just hide reposts on SC without this hack. the stream/timeline is useless to me without it. (n.b., it's a bit janky and you might have to reload the stream page for it to kick in.)

davey, Sunday, 17 January 2021 22:53 (one week ago) link

hm that’s a nice hack thx

flopson, Monday, 18 January 2021 02:54 (one week ago) link

i haven’t used it in a while but SoundCloud app was pretty bad last time i checked
