Annie Nightingale – Resident Advisor Exchange podcast RA.EX533 2020-11-12

“When Annie Nightingale became the first female DJ on the BBC in 1970, she had already had her finger on the pulse of the newly-developing youth and pop culture of ’60s Britain. Now with a half-century broadcasting under her belt, her new memoir Hey Hi Hello shows how she remained a prescient reader of the times in all the decades since. Despite working within the establishment, she consistently caught on to and promoted important musical currents emerging from new subcultures, from punk to drill and acid house.
With a career that dovetails with a broad cross-section of musical developments across five decades, Nightingale is not short of stories and insights. In conversation with Martha Pazienti Caidan, we hear about being sworn at by Johnny Rotten, drill as the new punk, and valuable advice for aspiring broadcasters.”

Lenny Dee – Resident Advisor Exchange podcast RA.EX505 2020-04-9

“Hardcore, gabba, breakbeat techno, rave—Vivian Host hears from the New Yorker who pioneered them all.
New York native Lenny “Dee” Didesiderio is considered by many the first hardcore techno DJ. In 1991 he introduced America to the hardcore techno sound when he started the first label devoted to the style, Industrial Strength Records. Since launching with Marc Acardipane’s timeless “Mescalinium United,” Industrial Strength remains a central node for hardcore music 28 years later. But Didesiderio’s work before hardcore became a fully fledged sound is equally significant.
It’s difficult to underestimate Didesiderio’s impact on the UK and Europe’s nascent rave scenes. Few artists at the time had a hand in so many anthems—both The Morning After and the debut Looney Tunes EP (which helped kick off XL Recordings) are stamped indelibly into the collective rave consciousness, while his contributions to the Bonesbreaks series helped cement the breakbeat’s presence in early techno. Yet even before then, Didesiderio was Arthur Baker’s production assistant, amassing credits with artists diverse as Nile Rodgers, N-Joy and New Order.
RA contributor Vivian Host joins Didesiderio for the most extensive examination of his work to date, exploring the myriad nooks and crannies of a career whose significance is coming into ever sharper relief.”

Orbital – Resident Advisor Exchange podcast RA.EX504 2020-04-02

“The brothers Hartnoll tell their story live from inner city electronic.
Phil and Paul Hartnoll’s story as Orbital is a quintessential tale of UK rave culture. Their musical, cultural and political backgrounds speak to the temper of the late ’80s. This is a group who came from punk, electro and hip-hop, grew up in a golden era for sci-fi soundtracks, watched ecstasy change the mood during the drudgery of Thatcherism, and took part in the explosion of DIY enthusiasm around acid house.
Orbital were “shot out of a human cannon” from their first release Chime, which literally took them from washing dishes to Top Of The Tops overnight. From there they became an exemplary of rave culture translating to the mainstream, earning acceptance from massive audiences thanks to their clear and present harmonic content and stadium-sized dynamics. The Hartnoll’s talked through how it all came together live with writer Matt Anniss last month as part of Leeds festival inner city electronic’s conference programme.”

VTSS – Resident Advisor podcast #703 2020-03-30

“Dark and rowdy club sounds.
Over the last few years, Martyna Maja has emerged as one of techno’s most rebellious new voices. Her sound is tastefully hard and thrillingly vicious, something she says she learned from Poland’s underground scene—clubs like Jasna1, the former party Brutaz and the WIXAPOL crew—which introduced her to the strains of EBM, industrial, hardcore and neo-gabber that give her style a fresh twist. In the DJ booth, as Will Lynch once put it, Maja has a “freestyling, don’t-give-a-fuck attitude,” a quality that can be applied to everything she touches, from her mixing style, production work and choice of collaborators (fellow rule breakers like SPFDJ and Varg) down to her piss-taking social media presence.
Maja’s enjoyed a meteoric rise as a DJ since moving from Warsaw to Berlin in 2018, playing on industrial-heavy lineups like Amsterdam’s Katharsis Festival to experimental events like Atonal, CTM and Unsound. Her productions, too, have earned a passionate following, once again defying expectations for what techno, EBM and acid can be. Her mix for RA, made up of mostly new tracks she’s been playing out recently, accelerates through these peak-time rave styles with an extrovert’s touch. In this period of social-distancing, RA.722 is an evil reminder of just how wicked a night at the club can be.”

Squarepusher – Resident Advisor Exchange podcast RA.EX500 2020-03-05

“Exchange number 500 with the talented Mr. Jenkinson.
Tom Jenkinson’s work as Squarepusher is some of the most jaw-dropping and future-facing music of the last three decades. It’s common to see him grouped alongside other key acts from the Warp stable like Aphex Twin and Autechre, but Jenkison’s musical horizons are uniquely all-encompassing. Few artists have managed to so convincingly create a dialogue—or an “argument” as Jenksion puts it—between live instruments and electronic sound. It’s a conversation he carries out at an insatiable rate, having released at least 14 LPs since 1996, all while pushing himself and his audience with new compositional approaches.”

B.Traits – Resident Advisor podcast #703 2019-11-18

“Two hours of ambient, techno and jungle.
Just over a year ago, Brianna Price, AKA B.Traits, announced that she was leaving Radio 1 after six years. Her reason? She was squeezed for time, due to a recent surge in DJ bookings, label commitments and production work. Since then, she has segued seamlessly into the latest phase of her career, touring the world as an in-demand techno DJ, as comfortable going back-to-back with Sunil Sharpe as joining Adam Beyer and co. at Drumcode raves. Her only release of 2018, the People’s Nation EP on her IN.TOTO label, was a perfect snapshot of where she was at musically: dark, eerie, subtly euphoric.
This is one of several sounds in the mix on RA.703, a two-hour odyssey through ambient, breakbeat, techno, rave and jungle. (Watch out for the tracks by Baby T, Price’s revived hardcore/jungle alias.) Because she put it together while grieving a tragic death, it throbs with raw emotion. “It includes a bit of everything that I’m feeling right now,” she told Resident Advisor. “Rage, bliss, anger, sadness, laughter, loss.””

SO – Resident Advisor podcast #697 2019-10-07

“Enter the Labyrinth.
Labyrinth is a festival with the stated aim of “achieving integration—with self and others, with nature and sound—through dance.” That may sound lofty, but for Labyrinth devotees, the festival’s combination of lush ambient music and deep, psychedelic techno, aired through huge speaker stacks in the Japanese countryside, offers something close to transcendence. SO has been a Labyrinth resident DJ for 17 years. He’s also one of the festival’s organisers, making him a crucial part of the Labyrinth story. In the past couple of years, his sets have been among the festival’s most talked-about.
Though he’s synonymous with Labyrinth, SO says it was another festival—Nachtdigital in 2016—that provided one of his biggest turning points as a DJ. “I prepared well and had a lot of really nice feedback from people,” he says. “After that, I had a better idea of what my style as a DJ really was.” That style is on full display on RA.697, an immaculate, flawlessly paced mix of ambient and techno.”
