Best New Electronic Music podcast - emisiune NPR radio

Sambata dimineata facem asa: facem cafeaua/ceaiul/laptele sau ce alte tonice calmante folosim, un croissant, o bere, un suc, sau chiar un pahar cu apa, obligator o revista mai despteapta decat cele pentru oamenii glossy, masculi sau femele (de preferat ceva de pe afara, british sau U.S. style) pe care o punem pe masa cu coperta in sus, fara sa o deschidem, si dam drumul la emisiunea de mai jos.
Urmatoarele 40 min ascultam niste muzica electronica foarte noua comentata inteligent si captivant de un producator de radio si doi producatori de muzica. O trimitem mai departe la 10 prieteni pe mail si le spunem sa o dea si ei mai departe, si sa nu intrerupa lantul, pentru ca ceva minunat se va intampla: vom auzi si noi discutii de acest gen despre muzica in urmatoarele zile. Si poate chiar noi o sa fim cei care le vom purta.
Oh. E o emisiune luata de pe un post de radio national, NPR, National Public Radio, descrisa asa: "On this edition of All Songs Considered, host Bob Boilen talks with NPR Music producers Otis Hart and Sami Yenigun about some of the best new electronic music out this fall."

Brian Eno: Horse (de pe Small Craft on a Milk Sea)

Brian Eno with Jon Hopkins & Leo Abrahams - Horse (taken from Small Craft On A Milk Sea) by Warp Records

Piesa de pe noul album al lui Brian Eno, cu John Hopkins si Leo Abrahams, Small Craft on a Milk Sea, scos de WARP, casa lui Aphex Twin. Albumul a fost lansat in octombrie in Japonia, la inceputul lui noiembrie in SUA si pe 15.11.2010 in Franta si UK. Este debutul lui Eno la WARP, iar ca strategie de promovare, Eno & Co au inregistrat 7 sesiuni live pe care le vor difuza timp de 7 saptamani cu cate un website apartinand cate unei tari diferite. Primul a iesit in Japonia la ro69 si poate fi vazut aici (si numai aici, pentru ca aparent e un video privat pe care nu il poti da jos cu nimic). In poza de mai sus este editia limitata a albumului cu pricina.


19.454. - (RA.201 Podcast )

  RA201 mixed by 19.454.

RA: Can you tell us a little about the idea behind the mix?

19.454. Well, I get this nice bottle of chilled Grey Goose vodka... Add large ice cube, lime and start playing records. It's hard to tell a musical story in an hour, so I made shortcuts. The beat matching is not perfect... It's all about the soul, the mind, dancing and enjoying music, vodka... Party!

Un mix solar pentru inceputul asta de primavara din noiembrie: Oriol CDR Session Podcast - October 2010 Part 1 for Burnt Progress


Oriol, producatorul nascut in Barcelona, cu ceva mostenire genetica din Trinidad, rezident in prezent in Cambridge, a debutat anul acesta in iulie la Planet Mu cu Night and Day, un album foarte bine primit de critica, plin de synthuri luxuriante, sound groovie mixt care aminteste de momentele boogie si electro din anii 80, infuzate cu soul din anii 70.
Cam acelasi lucru livreaza Oriol si cu acest mix facut pentru CDR (casa broken beat a celor de la Floating Points):  trip jazzy, laid back, plin de vise frumoase si pozitive. Asta pana pe la minutul 36, cand vin niste beaturi reci si se strica vremea frumoasa de pana atunci.
Probabil odata cu mutarea Oriol a devenit schizofrenic, ca orice expat, si de-asta prima parte a mixului e mediteraneana, iar a doua e paranoic urbana, cu nori tipic londonezi deasupra  (via Can of tought).


Deep house origins according to Terre Thaemlitz

"There must be a hundred records with voice-overs asking, 'What is house?' The answer is always some greeting card bullshit about 'life, love, happiness....' … House is not universal. House is hyper-specific … 'The contexts from which the deep house sound emerged are forgotten,' states Terre Thaemlitz, aka DJ Sprinkles, in a wistful spoken intervention on Midtown 120 Blues. 'Sexual and gender crises, transgendered sex work, black market hormones, drug and alcohol addiction, loneliness, racism, HIV, ACT-UP, Tompkins Square Park*, police brutality, queer-bashing, underpayment, unemployment and censorship – all at 120 beats per minute.' Midtown 120 Blues is educational, for sure; but it’s no lecture – Thaemlitz demonstrates the emotive and (believe it or not) political potential of deep house not just through rhetorical preaching, but by assured and heartfelt practice. (via FACT and RA)


"Probabil ca exista sute de piese cu voice-over-uri care intreaba, 'Ce este [muzica] house?'. Raspunsul seamana intotdeauna cu o carte postala plina cu urari de kkt despre 'viata, dragoste, fericire...' [Muzica] house nu este universala. [Muzica] house este hiper-specifica... 'Contextul in care s-a nascut [muzica] deep house-ul e uitat', afirma Terre Thaemlitz, aka DJ Sprinkles, intr-o discutie plina de regret despre albumul Midtown 120 Blues. 'Crizele sexuale si de gen, hormonii de pe piata neagra, dependenta de droguri si de alcool, singuratatea, rasismul, HIV, ACT-UP, Parcul Tompkins Square*, brutalitatea politiei, violenta fata de fenomenul queer, sub-salarizarea, somajul si cenzura - toate la 120 BPM'. Midtown 120 Blues (asculta aici) este educativ, cu siguranta; dar nu e un curs, iar Thaemlitz demonstreaza prin el potentialul emotional si - sa vezi si sa nu crezi - politic al deep house/ului, nu doar printr-o predica retorica, ci prin practica simtita din inima si asumata."

*By the 1980s Tompkins Square Park had become for many New Yorkers synonymous with the city's increased social problems. The park at that time was a high-crime area that contained encampments of homeless people, and it was a center for illegal drug dealing and heroin use.
In August 1988, a riot erupted in the park when police attempted to clear the park of homeless people; 44 people were injured. Bystanders as well as homeless people and political activists got caught up in the police action that took place on the night of August 6 and the early morning of August 7, after a large number of police surrounded the park and charged at the hemmed-in crowd while other police ordered all pedestrians not to walk on streets neighboring the park. Much of the violence was videotaped and clips were shown on local TV news reports (notably including one by a man who sat on his stoop across the street from the park and continued to film while a police officer beat him up), but ultimately, although at least one case went to trial, no police officers were found culpable.
The park had become a symbol of the problems in the city. Against that backdrop, Daniel Rakowitz[11] Rakowitz, nicknamed "The Butcher of Tompkins Square", was found not guilty by reason of insanity and remains incarcerated at the Kirby Forensic Psychiatric Center on Ward's Island.[12] shocked the neighborhood in 1989 when he murdered Monika Beerle, dismembered her, made a soup out of her body and served it to the homeless in the park.
