Shpongle: 'I Don't Think We Can Abandon Psytrance. I’m Certainly Not Going To'

Shpongle: 'I Don't Think We Can Abandon Psytrance. I’m Certainly Not Going To' | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Events | Scoop.it

"There he goes. One of God's own protoypes. Some kind of high-powered mutant never considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die." Hunter S. Thompson wasn't talking about Raja Ram, but..

Webgrrl's insight:

 At 74 years, Raja is still touring the world with his own singular brand of madness. Like some Pied Piper from beyond the doppelbereich, he dances about the stage playing the flute, "throwing hats to the people" and leading dusty dance floors into phantasmagorical states of rapture and delight. He's a quarter of the legendary psytrance act 1200 Mics and half of the strange, divine and utterly unclassifiable beast that is Shpongle with Simon Posford. - Pulseradio (read more..)

Soundwave fans told to take the bus

Soundwave fans told to take the bus | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Events | Scoop.it
Free shuttle buses will run to the Soundwave music festival this weekend, after the government scrambled to the rescue of thousands of rock music fans who faced being stranded at the Melbourne Showgrounds after the event's organisers failed to give public transport operators proper notice that the event was happening.
Webgrrl's insight:

Soundwave - which is expected to draw 35,000 fans over its two days

Baden Todd's curator insight, March 24, 7:20 PM

I couldn't find just a sound wave article so this will have to do. I went to sound wave this year and loved it. i definitely need to go back next year, and the year after. Five years in the future i'd love to look back and say i went to 5 sound waves in 5 years. Sound wave just has in my opinion the best artists playing the best music. Aldo runs helps run the safety side of this event and it really interests me in how such a large group of people are managed so well and kept safe.

instrument designed by Istanbul-based musician Görkem Şen that emits music right out of a retro sci-fi movie

Webgrrl's insight:

just saw this at thisiscolossal - you should too! check the vimeo video

 

~ The Yabahar is a new acoustic instrument designed by Istanbul-based musician Görkem Şen that emits music right out of a retro sci-fi movie, a remarkable feat considering there isn’t a bit of electricity involved. The Yabahar can be played in a variety of different ways using mallets or with a bow, relying on a combination of two drum-like membranes, long springs, and a tall fretted neck to create music...

Sydney's Illegal warehouse parties boom after lockouts

Sydney's Illegal warehouse parties boom after lockouts | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Events | Scoop.it

Illegal warehouse parties have proliferated since the state's new liquor laws were introduced, according to club owners and music promoters

Webgrrl's insight:

Illegal warehouse parties have proliferated since the state's liquor laws were changed, according to club owners and music promoters, who say the partygoers are trying to escape 1.30am lockouts and 3am last drinks in the CBD and Kings Cross.


The underground raves are not licensed and are known for unregulated drinking, drug use and potential fire hazards in unsafe buildings. Popular sites include disused warehouses or studios in the inner-city industrial belt between Marrickville and Alexandria, but also old army barracks in areas including Mosman.

Pete Tong defends Radio 1's 'Ibiza Prom'

Pete Tong defends Radio 1's 'Ibiza Prom' | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Events | Scoop.it

DJ Pete Tong has defended BBC Radio 1's first ever Prom, a musical homage to Ibiza, saying those opposed to dance music at the Proms need to "chill out".


DJ Pete Tong says BBC Radio 1's first Prom, a musical homage to Ibiza, will reach out to different audiences and help "keep the proms alive".

Webgrrl's insight:

"Just to stay stuck in the past or stay stuck within rigid guidelines, whatever you're doing, you'll struggle over a longer period of time," he said.
Billed as "less concert and more dance-party", the event will help mark the 20th anniversary of Radio 1 in Ibiza. Special guests including Ella Eyre and John Newman will perform with Jules Buckley and his Heritage Orchestra.

When Ralph Erenzo wants to shake up a batch of his Hudson Baby Bourbon, he wheels in the sub-woofer and cranks up the dubstep right next to the barrels.

 

"I call it sonic maturation," says the eccentric founder of New York bourbon company Tuthilltown Spirits. "I have no scientific evidence for it, but I think the vibrations help to develop the colour and aroma more quickly.

Webgrrl's insight:

10 signs you're a veteran raver | We don't stay young forever. It's the unfortunate truth about life, and it especially applies to going out. After a while, things just aren't the same. You need more rest, everyone in the place seems like they're half your age, and the guy who used to be your favourite DJ doesn't even play the same style of music. If one or more of these applies to you, consider yourself a veteran rave (via pulseradio)
