Berliners Robosonic share a handful of surefire dancefloor heaters

Delivered... Ken Taylor | Scene | Wed 19 Dec 2012 7:00 pm
Berlin residents Cord and Sacha make up Robosonic, a duo that built a solid reputation in their own city over the years, but fully broke out on the international scene early on this summer with the infectious and deep party anthem "Worst Love," which appeared on an EP of the same name for Off Recordings. Seeing as 2012 saw the German pair rise to the top of the year's crop of new producers—and solidified their reputation as a powerful DJ partnership—it's about time the boys gave us a taste of what they've been spinning lately.

Q&A: Ira Glass on Storytelling and the Visual World, Part 2

If you are a This American Life fan, chances are that you have found yourself wondering at one point or another why Ira Glass is so damn good at what he does. “Why am I sobbing in the parking lot of Whole Foods listening to the end of your radio show again, Ira, WHYYYYYY???!!!“

FILTER recently chatted with Glass about his newly released live cinema event and what, exactly, makes for a good story. (Spoiler alert: Glass says, “You need a plot.” Fifth grade English teachers everywhere can now say, “I told you so!”)

This is the second part of a two-part interview. You can begin with Part One HEREYou can view the full-length, 2-hour stream of “The Invisible Made Visible” for $5 HERE.

The Listening Tree: A Holiday Tree Whose Colored Lights Respond to Sound

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Wed 19 Dec 2012 6:22 pm

Wintertree from Limbic Media on Vimeo.

Winter: it’s dark. So, it’s no coincidence that holiday traditions from Christian to Jewish to Pagan to … uh, New Year’s … celebrate light. And it’s fun watching in this video the delight as colored lights respond to sound – not in the endlessly-playing annoying-Christmas-tune way, but in the “you can sing to a tree and it’ll light up” way.

Limbic Media writes CDM with this project they did in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

The Downtown Victoria Business Association (DVBA) commissioned Limbic Media to design an audio reactive tree for the holiday season using 800 individually addressable RGB LEDs. We utilize onset, energy and frequency analysis to produce clear yet complex lighting visualizations based on sound picked up by an array of microphones embedded in the tree.

Now, we’re all on vacation, but I hope to see you in the spring semester season as we get to work on new visualization and interactive projects.

In the meantime, here’s some more tuba-on-tree action – because you can never have too much tuba.

LISTEN: The Kavanaghs Ring In The Holidays With New Double-Sided Christmas Single

Argentinean rock outfit, The Kavanaghs—whom we fell in love with upon catching their performances at this year's installment of Culture Collide—exude the hospitable holiday spirit year-round. Seriously, what other band's current location on Facebook is "where you want us to be"?

Now, the band's generosity continues to skyrocket, in the form of their double-sided Christmas single—produced by the band members themselves—streamable since December 14 via Bandcamp.  

Hit play immediately for Side A's feel-good pop/rock tune named "Ring the Bells." Then, soak up a very Beach Boys-esque, a capella Side B: "Christmas Letters." Both are conveniently located below, so what are you waiting for?

Is DJing an art?

Delivered... Music: Electronic music | guardian.co.uk | Scene | Wed 19 Dec 2012 5:08 pm

Open thread: Following DJ Shadow's recent proclamation that he will never sacrifice his integrity after having his set curtailed, are artistic pretensions among the DJ world misplaced?

Following on from the argument over whether video games can be art, the same question is now being leveled at DJing – can playing recorded music for the entertainment of a crowd be called art?

Last weekend DJ Shadow had his set at the Mansion nightclub in Miami abruptly curtailed, the reason given that it was "too future" and too confusing.

Reading on mobile? Watch this video on YouTube

Shadow later tweeted the following:

Fellow DJ Erol Alkan later offered his support on Twitter:

But isn't "part entertainer part jukebox" a fairly reasonable description of what a DJ does? That was a point made by journalist David Hepworth in a (since deleted) post on his blog. Referring to DJs in general, he said: "You must surely realise that you make your living by putting on records, which is only a tiny bit removed in degree of difficulty from switching on the radio. Furthermore, there must be an implied social aspect to your trade. If you take to the stage to play records then you are entering into a sort of contract. You must accept that your job is to increase the amount of happiness in the room rather than reduce it."

So what exactly are the roles and responsibilities of the DJ? Is the DJ's task to simply entertain the masses – or is the DJ is an artist? How creative is the DJ's role – and is it really that far removed from "switching on the radio"? We'd like to hear what you think.

Florist’s "Black" gets dark with a remix from Zeina

Delivered... Emma Robertson | Scene | Wed 19 Dec 2012 1:00 pm
German producer Florist follows up a slew of successful 2012 releases with his latest EP, Cards on the Table, on the Moscow-based imprint Music Kollektiv. The eight-track EP features Florist’s sneaky minimal beats and elusive, fragmented vocal loops on tracks like “Diesa” and “Reflection,” but today's Track of the Day has more to do with his awesome “Black,” which gets the remix treatment courtesy of Montreal-based minimal DJ/producer Zeina.

Trans-genre: Joey Hansom’s 2012 Mixtape

Delivered... Joey Hansom | Scene | Wed 19 Dec 2012 10:45 am

 

Another year ending, another mini-panic attack from the pressure of arbitrarily deciding what’s better than what. So, here’s my mixtape with a few favorites from 2012. It’s my typical transgenre approach, although more far-reaching and haphazard than I might play in a club. But you can dance to the middle half, maybe even mosh for a bit. If you prefer to remain seated while listening, that’s also fine. I think this was a good year for distortion and delay, drip-droppy aquatic sounds, sterile beats and weird vocal FX. I hope I win a Grammy for my mixtape.

 

 

Tracklist:

Gaggle – Leave the City
Laurel Halo – Mk Ultra
Alexander Geist – What I Mean to You
Chinawoman – Pure at Heart
Cooly G – He Said I Said
Grimes – Circumambient
Mykki Blanco – Kingpinning (Ice Cold)
Hard Ton – Not Again (Snuff Crew Remix)
Scissor Sisters – Let’s Have a Kiki
Tiga – Plus (Jacques Lu Cont Remix)
Death Grips – Hacker
Fake Blood – All in the Blink
Trust – Dressed for Space
Bear in Heaven – Idle Heart
Micachu and the Shapes – Slick
Kool Thing – Plan.Life.Go
Godmother – Theme Song from James Bond 23
Teengirl Fantasy – End
Gabriel Prokofiev & Peter Gregson – Float Dance

Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge talk "DUI" and walking the line

Delivered... Brittany Gaston | Scene | Wed 19 Dec 2012 9:00 am
Both Ashley Wallbridge and Gareth Emery have graced the Beatport charts multiple times, so the thought of the two power producers coming together was an intriguing proposition. Last year, their first collaboration, "Mansion," was exactly that—and turned out to be one of the bigger successes from Emery's Garuda imprint. Now, having tortured their fans for almost a year, the boys have finally released their energetic "DUI," which is sure to cause to some on-looker delays. Somehow between their individual tours in Europe and South Africa, we caught up with the pair and made them walk the line.
