DJ Pitch – Resident Advisor podcast #797 2021-09-13

“Club bangers of all stripes.
The many hats of Robert Venning, the London-based artist better known as DJ Pitch, include DJ, producer, label manager, A&R and promoter. (He’s also on his way to becoming a qualified architect.) But what really drives him is building communities through music, being the glue between people with shared tastes and talents. His labels TT and All Centre—which he co-runs with Gribs and Simkin respectively—are home to spellbinding records by a network of like-minded artists, many of whom had never released music before. Venning relishes giving people a chance. In this era of fractured online existence and rampant individualism, his humble, behind-the-scenes approach is exactly what the scene needs.
On RA.797, Venning steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight. This two-hour mix—twice as long as his usual club sets—is DJ Pitch turned up to 11, with classics and cheeky edits alongside a wealth of music, some of it unreleased, by the artists in his orbit. There’s also new music of his own, including the world premiere of a UK garage remix of “Seven Nation Army.” Does he pull it off? Dive in and find out.”

MARRØN – Resident Advisor podcast #786 2021-06-28

“Vital techno from Amsterdam.
MARRØN is the kind of DJ we love to feature in this mix series: someone who holds down their local scene week in and week out, someone who makes a difference. As a cofounder of the day-into-night Sunday Eerste Communie party, the Amsterdam-based DJ has been essential in providing a safe space for all kinds of people to enjoy techno—a self-described “holy day” away from the city’s usual nightlife hotspots, taking place at the intimate Garage Noord on the city’s North side. The party describes itself as a “judgmental free atmosphere,” and MARRØN himself has said that it’s all about “the purest form of techno,” which gives you a good idea of what his parties, and his sets, sound like.
The other thing that MARRØN emphasizes about his parties is sound quality (you’ll see this mentioned in almost every interview he does, and every Eerste Communie event listing). It’s partly because the style of techno he plays is detailed, glimmering and sleek, the kind where every nuance is meant to be felt and heard, not just pummeling you on the dance floor. He plays the kind of techno where melodic leads scurry across the stereo spectrum, where flashes of melody and colour light up an otherwise greyscale landscape. It’s techno that never sits still, groovy but adventurous, alive and dynamic, the kind of techno that encourages you to keep dancing with every new shift or new synth chord. He speaks often about “consistency,” and while his sets are steady-handed and smooth, it’s the moments where things flicker and change that are the most exciting.
“To me, this uptempo, rhythmic style of techno is a style that’s timeless,” he said in an interview with Glamcult.”Music that can be played in the afternoon or as a closing slot without getting bored of it.””

Endgame – Resident Advisor podcast #775 2021-04-12

“Heart-on-sleeve club music.
Along with the wave of explosive, experimental club music that crested over the dance music world in the middle of the last decade came a sleeker, subtler, more emotional vibe. Starting with his breakthrough Savage EP in 2016—on the important and sometimes overlooked PTP label—Endgame smoothed out the grime-influenced sound of the day into lusher reggaeton-influenced beats. On the following Flesh EP for Hyperdub, he collaborated with Organ Tapes, whose emo-influenced vocals predicted the sound of a whole new sector of dance music, where club took a singer-songwriterly approach and later merged with what would become known as hyperpop.
On his new album, Surrender, Endgame takes the mic himself for the first time, hanging around in the studio after a vocalist had left the session. It’s a dark, interior album inspired by loss and grief, turning his usually buoyant sound inside out. This is dance music that isn’t afraid to bare the darkest corners of its soul. It’s illuminating, heart-rending and very often funky, sketching a sound he outlines on this RA Podcast.
Featuring tracks from crucial artists like Lauren Duffus, Hyph11e, quest?onmarc, Akash and Debby Friday, Endgame’s mix makes today’s club music feel limitless in its scope and vision. It starts with woozy bedroom pop, goes through hip-hop, ballroom and techno, Latin American club music, gqom, you name it. Though Endgame’s productions are top-notch, the diversity and consistency of this mix suggests they’re only half the story. This is top-tier DJing that showcases the sound of today’s club music, wrought with all the heavy emotion and feeling of the pandemic years.”

Danny L Harle – Resident Advisor Exchange podcast RA.EX552 2021-04-01

“The PC Music alumnus talks Harlecore, his debut album for Mad Decent.
Danny L Harle was a foundational figure in the early days of the label PC Music, collaborating with imprint founder A.G. Cook as Dux Content and emerging as a promising artist in his own right with 2013’s breakout single “Broken Flowers.” By 2016 he’d worked with vocalists Caroline Polachek and Carly Rae Jepson on follow-up PC Music singles “Super Natural” and “Ashes of Love.” He went on to produce Polachek’s album Pang and earned high-profile credits for the likes of Charlie XCX and Nile Rodgers. Last month he released his debut album Harlecore on Mad Decent, presenting a rave-focused sound via four different DJ personas in an online club environment.
On the Exchange we hear the story behind the construction of Harle’s virtual world, the record shop manager who inspired his musical taste, and his respect for the supercharged genre of Mákina. ”

Laurine – Resident Advisor podcast #773 2021-03-28

“Smooth, eclectic house from the Slow Life DJ.
Slow Life, the crew and label cofounded by Laurine, embody a certain kind of cool, calm and collectedness in dance music. It’s right there in the name. They take their time with everything: refining their craft, releasing their music at a steady rate of around four records per year. Their sound is also easygoing, and incredibly appealing. Think ’90s techno at its most exploratory, with traces of trance, dream house and illbient. It’s warm and fuzzy dance music, with musicality and soul.
As a DJ, the Berlin-based Italian Laurine embodies this approach. Her DJing is almost impossibly smooth, and the records she plays timeless, drawn from the same silky, rarefied atmosphere as the Slow Life records. You could probably hear any of her sets blind and realize who was DJing three or four records in—that’s how distinctive her style is. This RA Podcast is no difference, splitting the difference between head-in-the-clouds house and tough, jacking beats with organ basslines. It’s a heavenly hour of DJing that might sound extra nice because of the break forced by the pandemic—Laurine says that it helped her fall in love with spinning records all over again. She wants to get back to it soon, but naturally, she’s not in a rush. She’s blessed us with this mix, and that’s good enough for now.”

Carl Cox – Resident Advisor podcast #768 2021-02-22

“The dance music titan delivers a rare live set.
Since the early ’90s, Carl Cox has been the biggest DJ in dance music, an artist whose success and longevity remains unrivalled. He’s a brand, a logo, a catchphrase, helming perennial world tours and record-breaking Ibiza residencies. But underpinning this great machine is something much more simple: a man with an undying passion for playing records. Most house and techno fans have at some point gazed up at Cox’s gap-toothed grin from the dance floor. Or chuckled along to his silly patter on the mic. For more than three decades, he has embodied the joy of raving.
So what does the king of the rave do in a pandemic? Since his US tour was interrupted last spring, Cox has been at home on his farm in Melbourne, broadcasting weekly streams from his studio, El Rancho, and finally tending to some long-neglected projects. One of these was putting together a live show, which he has done only once before, back in the early ’90s. Framed by a wall of vinyl and surrounded by hardware, Cox recorded RA.768 at El Rancho earlier this month. ”

Calibre – Resident Advisor podcast #765 2021-02-01

“Drum and bass, dub and dubstep from a true original.
Last month, Dominick Martin revealed his latest album would be a collection of 140 BPM tracks he’s been writing the past few years. In 2019, he put out an ambient album, and three years before that, he released an LP of house music. All the while, his usual drum & bass records arrived apace, including the ongoing Shelflife series, of which he’s releasing a seventh volume of later this year. All of that is to say that the Irish producer can make whatever kind of music he sets his mind to, which wouldn’t be so impressive if his signature—and wonderful—sound didn’t shine through so clearly in everything he does.
Drum & bass fans will know that style well: lifelike bass, sighing melodies, sculpted drums and a brush of baroque instrumentation. His music carries deeply felt emotion in all its forms, something you can particularly hear on albums like Planet Hearth. He’s one of the most consistent drum & bass producers in the game. 16 albums in and over 20 years later and no one in the scene has come close to touching his sound.
It feels increasingly wrong to call Martin a drum & bass producer, however, something that his RA Podcast makes clear. Meant as a preview of sorts for new 140 BPM album Feeling Normal, it’s made up mostly of originals. (Make sure you check for that Mark Ernestus dub edit.) Starting off ambient and heading through the 140 BPM pulses of that LP—soulful dubstep, garage and vocal tracks—the mix ends with the beloved drum & bass that has been delighting his fans for decades. Martin is a true original, and this is him at his best. ”

Black Coffee – Resident Advisor Exchange podcast RA.EX543 2021-01-28

“South Africa’s house music icon.
It’s no understatement to call Black Coffee one of South Africa’s most important dance music artists. But even though he’s a veritable star in his home country, his trajectory has since spread his influence internationally, positioning him as one of house music’s biggest crossover acts in general. His forthcoming album, Subconsciously, illustrates his current status, featuring the likes of Pharrell, Usher and Diplo. But being embraced by pop acts hasn’t diminished his commitment to music’s future—a new generation of exciting young talent like Celeste, Tellaman and Msaki feature just as prominently.
In conversation with Martha, we hear the story behind the record, along with how to translate the special energy of an intimate DJ set to an enormous festival stage, South Africa’s confidence in new artists, and the importance of putting in the hours when developing your craft.”

Roska – Resident Advisor Exchange podcast RA.EX540 2021-01-07

“A conversation with a pillar of UK funky.
Since his debut EP in 2008, Roska has stayed with the UK funky sound through thick and thin, first creating one of its best bangers (“Squark”) before taking the music global to Japan, Australia and beyond, all the while bringing through the next generation of talent via his vital label, Roska, Kicks & Snares. Without his dedication, UK funky may have die
All that said, the Londoner born Wayne Goodlitt has never been about just one sound. Dancehall, soca, grime, jungle, house and his beloved UK garage have all fed into his unique artistry. Even pop has crept in recently, like on the excellent “Giving It Up” with the singer Ruby Wood, one of more than 20 tracks Roska has put out in 2020. All these years later, he remains as hungry and hard working as ever, as we found out in this live RA Exchange.”

Andrew Ashong – Resident Advisor podcast #759 2020-12-21

“Five hours of funk and soul recorded live in Hackney.
Andrew Ashong was new to most of us when he debuted on Theo Parrish’s record label with his first EP back in 2012, but once you hit play on that record he felt instantly familiar. His music, soulful, smoky and sensual, is rooted in several traditions at once: R&B, hip-hop, house, disco, soul, broken beat, you name it. He’s only put out a few records since—including his latest, Sankofa Season with UK legend Kaidi Tatham, last month—but all of them have the easy confidence of someone who knows the music they love inside-out.
Ashong is not just a wonderful producer and songwriter. He’s also one hell of a record digger, and a great DJ too. You won’t find many mixes of his online, which makes this RA Podcast all the sweeter. It was recorded live at a night in Hackney—you know, with people and everything—this year, but the recording went on well past closing time, just Ashong winding things down for his own pleasure. It’s a journey into a collection that includes plenty of droolworthy records, especially for fans of Brazilian music, but there are also classic cuts from Barry White, Cameo, War and Heaven 17. It’s a loose and easy session perfect to warm up a lazy winter’s day.”

Mark Radford – Resident Advisor Exchange podcast RA.EX538 2020-12-17

“Setting the record straight on deep tech.
Mark Radford has provided the soundtrack for countless joyful nights for dancers across the world and London in particular. As a driving force behind the sound dubbed deep tech, Radford shaped a new style that was one of the most popular dance music cultures in London over the last decade. He’s held some of the longest residencies at key institutions like Rinse FM and Ministry Of Sound, while his label Audio Rehab has been the test bed for deep tech’s development since 2012.
Despite his popularity on dance floors, Radford’s work has not been sufficiently documented by dance music media, which is a key topic in this conversation with journalist Marcus Barnes. They also cover the injustice of the stigma attached to the dance style known as shuffling, with which Radford became associated. We also hear of his formative years attending London venue Dungeons and the influence of inspirational pioneers like Jumping Jack Frost, as well as the continuing rejuvenation of the deep tech sound.”

Tailor Jae – Resident Advisor podcast #758 2020-12-13

“Lively UK club sounds from a rising London DJ.
Tailor Jae is in a spot many young DJs find themselves in the end of 2020: a gigging career ground to halt just as they were on the precipice of wider international success. The London DJ has been working up a storm as if there was no pandemic, however, releasing mixes for major platforms all year and sharpening a sound that has real crossover potential. Jae has been interviewed several times in these pages—she was the recipient of RA’s scholarship with music school Point Blank—and she usually comes back to one idea: “playing whatever I want.”
For Jae, that means threading in grime, drill and rap in between bubbly garage, jungle and broken beat UK club sounds. For her, there’s no difference between any of these things, which is kind of how it should be, and it offers an accessible way into club music for outsiders or dilettantes. With killer taste, an ear for hooks and a well-honed DJing style, it’s easy to imagine her being a big radio DJ one day, breaking new tunes for the mainstream and introducing them to underground club music. For now, she’s just one of London’s best young DJs.”

Year In Review 2020 – Resident Advisor Exchange podcast RA.EX537 2020-12-10

“Typically the annual Year In Review podcast gives Resident Advisor staffers a chance to talk about standout events and releases of the year. With the former all but stopped and the latter becoming a matter of survival for many independent artists, this year’s edition looks at the continuing fallout from the dance music economy grinding to a halt.
Writers, DJs and RA contributors Ash Lauryn and Tajh Morris, AKA Turtle Bugg, sat down with staff writer Matt McDermott to think through some of the questions raised by the pandemic while shining a light on standout releases from the likes of Marcellus Pittman, Stefan Ringer and Byron the Aquarius.”

Tim Reaper – Resident Advisor podcast #757 2020-12-06

“Modern-day jungle from an old soul.
Jungle is as alive and well as it’s ever been. Just ask Tim Reaper—in the last ten years he’s created a flourishing career for himself making old-school(ish) jungle for a network of labels that represent this scene: 7th Storey, Foxy Jangle, Parallax Recordings, Lickshot and plenty more. More recently, after releasing the standout track on a Lobster Theremin compilation, he inked a deal with the label to release a crossover EP of sorts, earning him the biggest audience he’s had yet. On top of that, he runs a few labels like Globex Corp—reserved for his work with frequent collaborator Dwarde—and Future Retro, where he releases the Meeting Of The Minds series.
Tim Reaper feels like a natural ringleader for this scene not just because he’s a talented producer and DJ. He has a deep and healthy understanding of this music and of what came before him, too. (Watch him handily win a trainspotting competition on Electronic Beats here.) He calls his new label Future Retro, which just about explains it: the music he makes and releases is in thrall to the past, but not simply out to recreate it. What Reaper and his compatriots like Coco Bryce, Dwarde, Kloke and FFF do is find new wrinkles in the old jungle sound, imagining alternate futures or new directions the scene could have taken if it never evolved into what we now know as drum & bass. Yes, you could argue people have always made jungle, but Reaper and friends have made it into a bigger, stronger community with a whole new following.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Reaper’s mix, made up almost entirely of new material from the labels he runs and helps with, was a classic jungle history lesson. But then you wouldn’t recognize any of the tracks, either. This 90-minute mix is a tour of today’s jungle scene through some of its brightest producers, with plenty of precision break choppage, infectious samples and the occasional dip into pre-jungle UK hardcore territory. Like time travelling from 1994 direct to 2020, there’s something about this mix that is both deeply nostalgic and bravely futuristic. This is one for old junglists as much as it is for people looking for a way into one of the most exciting scenes and sounds that dance music has ever seen.”
