Miles-Cast: A Tribute To Miles Davis
May 23, 2008 11:25 AM PDT
The 25th May is the birthday of my favourite artists, and arguably one of the greatest musicians ever, Miles Davis. As a way of a tribute i've put together this podcast of his work. This podcast is in no way a "Best of" Miles. Since every Miles fan will have a difference of opinion of that. Nor is it an (entirely) chronological account of his work. Instead it is a choice of tracks that i think show some of his development, from bop, through the semi classical of gil evans, to modal and then the electric and more avante garde.

With this podcast i was aiming more for a vibe you would catch in a club in terms of mixing and tune selection. It definetly represents all the different styles coming through in Dubstep at the moment ranging from the techy electronic side to the more ambient and dubby sounds. No love lost for the deep basslines and there's certainly some signs of the origins of Dubstep in here too. The producers on show here are very much at the top of their game which im sure you'll agree comes through in the overall feel of this podcast. Enjoy

This podcast is my take on modern punk rock and some of the sub-genres of punk that have evolved over the years, partly in an attempt to show that punk bands in this day and age are still relevant, both in terms of their music and their politics. Everything is from the 90s or the current decade (apart from one track), because these are all bands that I have grown up listening to. I have tried to include as many bands that you might not have heard of as possible, but this is in the hope that you will like what you hear. And yes, I have definitely ripped off The Exploited in selecting the name of this podcast.

There's a place in my consciousness that instrumental music stimulates where no other music can. Whether it's the images of grandeur and landscapes that an epic track conjures in me or imagining watching the band create such beauty, there's a feeling of captivation and life in those moments. Where nothing outside myself exists.

“A testament to the sweeping vista of music, The Vodkast Pt. II is what the phrase ‘...and now for something completely different’ was created for. If Pt. I was a journey across a country, then Pt. II is a whirlwind trip across continents. Done in an hour, and only briefly pausing at sparsely populated villages along the way...”

For the last 50 or so years female singers have been at the forefront of soul music in one way or another, from the deep south of the states, to Europe and beyond. This is a short celebration of some of those soul sisters and their music. Some you'll know, some you won't but hopefully you'll appreciate the unknowns as much as the more well known amongst them. There's no theme to the mix, they're just a few tracks hand picked by myself for your listening pleasure.
Enjoy and Keep The Faith!

Hip Hop began in the Bronx Projects in the late 1970's early 1980's and this podcast serves as a brief sampler of this pioneering work. In the projects of the late 1970's unemployment and lawlessness was high, with gangs acting as a defacto police force. Disco dominated the charts and it's glamour and focus on material things was alien to the people who lived in the Projects and the funk music which they loved.
Hip hop began, in no small part inspired by the spoken word activist poetry of Gil Scott Heron, with gang leaders talking over stripped down disco breakbeats as a way of proposing alliances, diffusing tensions or otherwise engaging their communities. With the rise in popularity of these ad hoc gatherings leaders, who were often the DJ's, began employing "Microphone Controllers" to 'rap' over their beats. As the popularity continued to increase the beats and raps evolved in complexity until they had become a new form of music. Spawning harmonizing groups of rappers such as the Funky 4+1, Cold Cut Bros., Sugarhill Gang and the Furious Five. All of which feature in this mix. With the track "adventures on the wheel's of steel" being the first record to feature "scratching".
I hope you get as much enjoyment out of this mix as I had putting it together. Joey Robinson Jr., the former head of Sugarhill Records, is quoted as saying "When hip hop first came out we had alot of people thinking it would just be a fad". It's now twenty seven years later and how wrong he was...

Something a little different from me here now, this podcast is infused with soul - a lot of which I like to call Bleepy Funky Soul but veers off course on occasion into house, hip hop, jazz and more traditional neo soul sounds. I put this together because I want to try and open people up to hearing something they may not have heard otherwise and hopefully encourage people to explore the sound further. I hope you enjoy this selection of fine tunes, and check back for the next installment of me Doing What I Do

This episode is merely the sound of a Tuesday morning for
Perhaps subconsciously I’m trying to send a message
And now that I’ve laid out my stall…within this
My intention is clear: I want to convert as many people as I
If one person joins me on the dark-side, I have been
Listen, and listen loud.

The next in the series of DJ Killian's superb dubstep series. Again bring the bass and beats to loosen the stereo, K brings another fine selection of tunes that demand to be played at volume (preferably in a residential area). From the opening track by [arguably] the daddy of the scene Skream, to the closing track by pioneer and enigmatic master Burial this is packed full of top tunes.

Welcome to the listening, a podcast born from the minds of musical obsessives. A form of aural autism or acoustic ADD for the twenty first century, where the emphasis is on music over hype. As cliched as it seems the aim is to provide a blank canvas for the contributors to paint with whichever musical tone they see fit. Be those tones the blues, hip-hop, soul, rock, jazz or psychedelia the groove and passion will link them all. What makes The Listening so unique is the very different musical personalities of its contributors - no two podcasts will sound even remotely alike. If one particular edition is not to your taste, then download the next one as that one may well be up your street. Any feedback at all about what you hear would be very welcome, either through here or by joining our last.fm group here, http://www.last.fm/group/The+Listening%2C+Last.fm+Group So, sit back, relax and start Listening...
