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.
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.
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!
Well now that we have all of the major milestones out of the way for at least the next 5 years, it's time to get back down to business and play some great EBM for everyone! This week I mostly finish off some discs to make room for newer music. Its such a wonderful problem to have when you have too many great new tracks to play!
Welcome to a show I never thought I'd ever do. Yup, this is RSA episode #1000. At least 1,000 weeks I've sat down to get a weekly show out to you, predating the "first podcast" by something like 5 years. I owe a lot to a number of very generous and helpful people, both artists, labels, and of course you the listener! So sit back and enjoy 100 minutes of RSA history!
We've got a great show for you all this week with a special look at EBM from Mexico and Poland courtesy of a couple of compilations that sadly aren't on Amazon for me to link to. We listen to a really cool genre of music that anyone of any nationality can get into. So lets celebrate such awesome music and diversity! This makes RSA #999, so only one more week to go until the 1000th episode spectacular!
There's nothing quite like a long weekend, especially when its a Canadian long weekend and I know that all of our American friends have to go to work today. This makes RSA #998, so only 2 more weeks to go until the 1000th episode spectacular! But man am I glad that got this show done a couple of days ago. Its so hot up here that I'm moving from one air conditioned room to the other as quickly as I can!
Summer hours continue for at least another 6 weeks as we get closer to the fall and we begin to realize that the summer can't last forever. But that just leaves more time for me to work on things that really matter, like working on a great new RSA each week! We're also getting closer and closer to our next milestone, 1000 shows! Stay tuned for an extra special extravaganza!
I'm back from my whirlwind trip to the USA! Did you miss me? I had a great time riding on trails and spending time with my friends in Washington DC, not to mention DJing with Defekt. But vacation time is over, so I have to get back to work curating some great new music into this weeks RSA!
So I'm posting this coming weeks show just a little early. Well, I need to give my eagle eyed public a chance to check for my mistakes before I head off on a week long cycling trip in the US. Next weeks show will be (hopefully) a posting of my set from Risque, but will only be available on Twitter and Facebook. Don't forget that if you're in the Washington DC area on July 14th, you can experience "RSA live" as I DJ at Risque.
I'm back from my first trip, and working very hard for you all, especially today, Canada Day! I'm going to be leaving again next weeekend, so about as soon as I'm finished posting this weeks show, I'll start working on next weeks show so that you miss as little RSA as possible! Don't forget that if you're in the Washington DC area on July 14th, you can experience "RSA live" as I DJ at Risque.
I'm about to head off on my annual pilgrimage to the small town I was raised in, it makes a nice 4 day cycling trip. But before I can even finish packing I have to get this weeks RSA out to you wonderful people!
A little late this week as we're on the summer cycling schedule, but it was just so damned hot this weekend that when I was finished with my outdoor adventures I just wanted to collapse instead of working on my computer. But a day of rest has restored me, and we're back with another great show!
Another wonderful summer weekend and another great RSA for everyone! Next weeks show I'll have to try working on as much as I can during the week, as I'll be away next weekend. So next weeks show will be posted late, but I'm hoping that it won't be too late. But we should only miss one week this summer, and thats a good month away!
