RSA 12/10/2018
Its been a very busy week up here in the Great White North. I feel like I've been glued to my computer picking tracks, mixing stuff up, and trying (with a fair amount of success) not to sound like a goof. I've managed to get the best of show done (and that'll be posted just before New Years Eve) as well as 8 great tracks for...

State Of The Union - Beacon
Mental Discipline - Make You Happy
Solitary Experiments - Brace Yourself!
Alien Vampires - Ready To Die (Synapsyche)
Radioaktivists - Sinner
Spark! - Captain Pride
Uncreated - You Know Nothing
Seelennacht - The Pages In Between

This week I think we struck a good balance between the bouncy synthpop and the growly aggressive EBM. Heck we even have a *goth* track this week! Don't forget kids, variety is the spice of life, and we need to keep experimenting and trying new bands. Otherwise we might as well pack it in!

Parralox - Supermagic (DMT Berzerk)
Uncreated - Evolve (People Theatre)
Projekt Ich - Es Ist Wahr (Nature Of Wires)
A Industrya - Lies (Aesthetische)
Spark! - Tva Mot En
Arian 1 - Spend The Night (Reaxion Guerilla)
Noisuf-X - Death To All
Black Nail Cabaret - Bete Noir

This week we veer more towards the harsher, aggressive side of modern EBM. I love the well done stuff as much as the bouncy synthy stuff, but I don't always get a chance to feature it! Also I've started the serious work of putting the best of show for 2018 together, and we've only got 2 more weeks of eligibility for this year. Its such a hard life I lead, having to listen to my own shows, soaking in countless hours of great electronic music, and cherry picking the really great stuff. Though I'll admit I do miss my weekend riding and dread having to break the trainer out soon...

Vyrtual Zociety - Nuclear Bunker
Avarice In Audio - The Dance Of Albion
Broken Ego - Get Away (Ancient Step)
Alien Vampires - Hyperbolic Doubt (Chainreactor)
FabrikC - Glassimage
Circuito Cerrado - TNT (Fabrikmutter)
Solitary Experiments - Crash & Burn
Wiegand - Floating Away (Aftershow)

Back to the normal format this week, with tonnes of great new music for everyone. Now that we're half way through November I have to get cracking on the list of tracks for the best of 2018, as there's only 2 weeks left of "Eligibility". Also with DST ending and it getting darker "earlier" I feel like I should be doing my winter shows by candle light again. Try it some time, the soft lighting helps when staring at a monitor all day!

Form - Fire
Avarice In Audio - Wolves At The Door (Studio-X)
Hidden Souls - Hearts & Minds (Alexis Voice)
Machinista - Dark Heart Of Me (Apoptygma Berzerk)

What started out as a mental observation that I've been listening to Jean-Luc De Meyer doing vocals in various different projects *other* than Front 242 for nearly 30 years has turned into a theme show. I spent a couple of weeks going over tracks and side-projects and gathered 8 songs together, trying to avoid the obvious club classics that veterans of the scene like myself would find cliched. Could I make a show out of them? It appears that I could! So enjoy this extra special theme show!

Birmingahm 6 - The Kill
Cobalt 60 - 12 Months
32crash - Lone Ranger
Bigod20 - The Bog (Techno Duck)
Cyber-Tec - Let Your Body Die (K-Nitrate)
Glis - The Irreparable
Aiboforcen - We Woke Up The Dragon (Daniel B)

Well, I guess this is our annual Hallowe'en show. Its not themed that way, but thats where it falls on the calendar. It is kinda spooky though thinking that my voice is coming through speakers all over the world. Its quite scary that we're getting close to the end of 2018 and I have to start working on the year end best of show in a month! This also means that RSA will be heading into its 21st year. My radio show will be legally able to drink in the USA!

Analogue-X - Dark Shadow (Depechen)
Wiegand - Floating Away (Frozen Plasma)
Uncreated - You Know Nothing (Rob Dust)
Future Lied To Us - Tellurian

Its a strange weekend at RSA central as we're past the Canadian Thanksgiving, but the American version is yet to come, and Christmas is well off. However when your family spends its winter in Florida, you have to combine holidays and get them in before your parents are gone for 6 months! So as I finish the show I can smell turkey in the oven and I have pie to look forward to! So here's my early Christmas gift to you all!

C-Tec - Stateless
Projekt Ich - Forgotten Dreams (RMP)

Yup, we're definitely into the season of Todd having much more time to work on RSA as the weather changes and my focus turns from bicycles to computers again. This weeks show should sound extra great because I took the time to replace a hard drive, re-install windows, and give everything a nice clean. The 1s and 0s are much shinier than usual!

Machinista - Dark Heart Of Me (DNTR)

Welcome to another artificial milestone, as this show marks 250 months of RSA. It seems like hitting 20 years has brought us a lot of milestones, like 1000 shows, etc. 2019 is going to bring me other milestones, as it looks like I'll be doing more live sets than ever. Not only with out friends in Washington, but also in Yorkshire. But I've said too much. I look forward to meeting more and more of you in the coming year!

Today was one of those days where I was super motivated to be working on RSA and my own computing hobbies in general. One of the problems with being an IT drone is that after spending 8+ hours in front of a computer for work, the idea of spending more time in front of another can sometimes be... meh. But today I had some great new stuff to mix, and everything just came together.

Metroland - Memorabilia (Zusammenklang)
Solar Fake - The Pain That Kills You Too (Mr. Kitty)
Lederman DeMeyer - Back To Nature (Radical G)
Code 64 - Daylight
Schwarzchild - Seven (All The Ashes)
Pleasure Time - I Will Not Repeat (Arian 1)

Summer just doesn't want to leave Canada yet, so I wound up spending most of the weekend locked in the studio working on RSA and a few other upcoming DJ projects. 2019 is going to be a very busy year (comparatively) for me. I may even be getting the bug to do more live events.

Coldkill vs. Kant Kino - Silent Morning

Man, what a difference a week makes! Last weekend while I was finishing this show I had to strategically turn the AC off to record bits, and then turn it back on for a respite from the heat and humidity. Today I'm considering putting on a sweater and packing the AC away! My favorite time of the year with (admittedly) my favorite genre of music! Yep, this week we go bouncy with a Synthpop show. So much good new music this week!

A happy labour day to us all! I'm personally spending this holiday cowering indoors where there is air conditioning. Luckily it looks like this may be the last scorcher of a weekend we get so I can get back to being outside and wandering around listening to RSA. I've got to start thinking about a first draft list for the best of 2018! I should also note that 2019 may be a record year for live performances from me. So keep tuned to the show for details as they emerge!

Ashbury Heights - Domino
