It looks like a christmas miracle; or maybe it is a christmas miracle… The electronic music institution Resident Advisor is giving access to an archived bunch of podcast – all started back in 2006.
March 6th 2006, the RA Podcast series is getting a pulsating start, coming from non other than Troy Pierce. The concept is simple: exclusive mixes fine-tuned by the crème de la crème of the electronic scene, posted each week. It has never been stopped since.
The Resident Advisor Podcast serie has been spreading the love of electronic music while shedding new light on the underground scene. Apollonia, tINI, Adam Beyer, Carl Craig or Cassi were not golden names at that time… Then lo and behold RA is making every podcast ever released available to stream via Mixcloud (!!)
An improvised and fascinating summary; like a screenshot of the last nearly-ten years of dance music – this is simply cool. The Resident Advisor Podcast serie is incredibly rich, from mixes to live sets, sound collages to imaginary films soundtracks. Among the 499 podcasts, Margaret Dygas‘ one is mind-blowing. “The mix was recorded in my bedroom on two decks, a CDJ and an Allen & Heath mixer.” Really…
This coming Monday, 28th December, will see the RA podcast reach its 500th installment. Times are changing, and the musical genius seems to enhance peeps.
