Active Listener Podcast Scouring time and space to find music that resonates my soul

Typically my podcasts just flow organically out of what I'm currently listening to but sometimes I get a sense that I want to force a change is what I am listening to. I actively seek a different direction. That is what you have here. I have felt like I have just been only in the high energy realm for sometime. Now granted, that is where my predilection certainly lays but I do like to mellow it out sometimes and in this case I wanted to go with a mellow jazz vibe. I started with my go-tos and went from there. The genre grouping rapidly spiraled out of control however leaving me at a loss for what to title the podcast, hence the reference to this essay "Why Jazz isn't Cool Anymore" Anyway, I think you're gonna like the change of pace.

Oh my goodness, there was sooo much good music at SXSW this year! Of all varieties. From country to hip hop. From ska to soul. From folk to dancehall. All of it. So good. Your new favorite song is on this podcast. I’m sure of it. Happy listening.

 

Sorry it took a little longer this year to get through it all but narrowing down my favorites to just 30 was even more difficult than usual. For those unfamiliar with my process, every year I listen to every artist performing at SXSW. It’s on the order of 2000-3000 performers. I then narrow that down to a manageable size of around 100, which I use to build my schedule if I’m going to the festival (which I have sadly missed the last couple years). From there, I cull down to 20-30 bands for the podcast. If you want to hear the top hundred, or the top approximately 300 sorted by genre, I have all those playlists up on Spotify at ActiveListener. In other words, you can go way deeper if you want, something I would highly recommend.

Prepare yourself. This one is big time. I couldn’t be more happy with how this mix came out and I’m so excited for you to hear it. Pretty sure I figured out the perfect order for the tracks and the transitions turned out well too!

 

Last time, I may have taken you all around EDC but today, we hit the Basspod stage and never pull away. The number of amazing DnB producers on display over the three days was ridiculous: Camo & Krooked, Wilkinson, Friction, Andy C, Metrik, Reid Speed, Calyx & Teebee, Chase & Status, and so many more that I’m forgetting. It was epic. There were more than enough artists to make a full mix but then there was so much other incredible drum and bass that came out over the last year, I had to expand the field of eligibility. The breadth of styles you can achieve all at 175 bpm (plus or minus) is remarkable. Uplifting to introspective, sparse and minimal to redlining bass thumpers, airy vocals to emcees over grimy beats. It’s all so good. Turn it up and start the party.

 

I once again opted to abstain from talking so you get a clean mix. I debated this quite a bit. On one hand, I really like to add the context of how I personally connected with a song or artist or some other tidbit to throw it. For example I heard London Elektricity say he had to fight to keep “Jungle Ballet” on the tracklist for Keeno’s album. OMG great job Tony! That’s the best track on the album if you ask me. I also like to provide a small motivation to go buy the music so you can hear it without me talking on it. Of course, now no one buys music, you just stream it. And I put the tracklist up on my Spotify (ActiveListener) so that motivation may be moot. But then on the other hand, for this style of music in particular, the tracks are best heard cleanly mixed in with other tracks. Hearing them in context is to hear them at their peak. You can watch the highlights from the Olympics but you miss the best part if you weren’t following the whole completion up to the finish. How many of you saw those two American women win that cross country race?? That was so awesome but the replay didn’t come close to doing it justice. Or I mean, come on, Shaun White… It doesn’t get better than that. Well except maybe double overtime game 7 western conference finals Laker over Kings. Or actually who am I kidding? The best was obviously Vince Young. But anyway, way off topic but yeah, I went for the clean mix. So enjoy. And anyway, I’m gonna talk all over the next one because that is SXSW 2018.

Happy 2018!

Last June my sister and I got on a plane to Vegas for three epic days of electronic music at the annual Electric Daisy Carnival. We had to turn nocturnal for three days as the festival runs from 7pm to 5am each day but it was so worth it. The breadth of artists was asountounding. Over the next 90+ minutes I will try to give you a flavor. And note this time, I'm not going to talk all over it. Instead of regaling you with stories, I've opted to try and show off each artist in the appropriate context, i.e. in the mix. The result is pretty hot. I think you're gonna like it.

Okay first off, big announcement. I have given myself the rather giant task of creating Spotify playlists of every podcast I have made. I've done about five so far. Got a ways to to go. But you'll see them pop up. Just search for ActiveListener (one word) on Spotify and you'll find them. Or here's the link https://open.spotify.com/user/activelistener
 
So yeah, you are going to be able to cut me out entirely if you want. I am doing this for a couple reasons. First, I am all about supporting the music and the streaming model has finally come of age as a legitimate way to support the artists. In fact, I've read articles saying that in the next few years it may not even be worth it for Apple or Amazon to have MP3 stores because so much of the traffic has gone to streaming. Things were a lot different when I started the podcast, two years before Spotify was even available in the US.
 
Second and more selfishly, I want to be able to listen to my podcast mixes when I'm out. I was at a dinner party the other night and someone wanted to put on one of my podcasts because they like they mix but then we both agreed it wasn't really the right venue to hear me talking over music. As much as I may like to hear myself talk, it's different out of a speaker than from my mouth.
 
Okay so if I haven't buried the lead already, we're at PODCAST 90! That's a lot! And it seemed like a time to do something special. This is one of those episodes I have been meaning to do since almost the beginning and it is particulaly appropriate because most of the music is from the 90s. Remember head banging, moshing, and crowd surfing? My roots! Man, were my roots angry. There was a lot of angst, anger, and aggression in a lot of the music I listened to back then. I should say, I was also still all about electronica, punk, alternative, and even soundtracks like Last of the Mohicans (best ever). But the focus today is the rage.
 
This podcast was so much fun to make. And I want to assure that I scream tested most of these songs in the car over the last few months. It was awesome. I still know all the words. I will be very curious to hear the response to this one. Some people will know every song and to others it will be all new. Let me know what you think.

Jeremy Sole that is...

 

But before we get to that, as I was doing final post production for the podcast I realized IFE, who has possibly the best song ever (or at least best on this mix), hails from San Juan, Puerto Rico. I really should have known and I wish I had brought more attention to it. In case anyone forgot, for us Americans fighting against taxation without representation is kind of our whole thing. Puerto Rico is definitely American and definitely suffering from lack of a voice.

 

So what do I have in store for you today musically? Serendipitous digressions, that's what. This mix is to honor possibly my all time favorite radio DJ who gave up the reigns to his Wednesday night midnight to 3am slot after over ten years. I had so many musical discoveries thanks to that guy that it seemed only appropriate to serve up a mix in his honor. That and the finally apologize for mispronouncing his name (twice!) on the podcast years ago.

 

Also, tacked on a last minute addition to honor a good friend of our that passed away from cancer at far too young an age. Even still, it was long enough to positively affect a remarkable number of lives, including many that were only a single encounter. Her celebration of life was a testament to what a extraordinary human she was. 40 years was not enough but it's also 40 years to be thankful for.

Music lovers!

 

Once again, I am releasing a podcast on my birthday. You know, it is just one of those few times these days when I get some free time and I can't think of a better way to spend it than sharing great music. I am particullarly stoked on this mix. It covers a wide range of styles while attempting to maintain a consistent vibe/feel. It's all based around the Hidden Orchestra track "Still". From the first time I heard that piece, I knew I needed it featured prominently on the podcast but it is so unique! How to fit other songs around it? Well, that's the question this podcast answers. Enjoy.

On the day I sat down to record this episode we got the sad news that we lost Chester Bennington, the lead singer of Linkin Park. While completely unrelated to the theme of this episode, based on my level of obsession with Hybrid Theory all those years ago, I thought it was only appropriate to begin with a tribute. It is also a motivation to finally dig into my archives actually make that "Angry Man Music" podcast episode that I have been considering all these years.

 

This episode started out sort of trying to be an R&B podcast but then it turns out that for the most part I don't really like R&B. Basically, I don't really know how you categorize this music except that they are essentially love songs. Or, songs about love and how it may not be working out so well. Or, not so much love as lust. Or, I don't know, it's just awesome (as usual!). Regardless, it's time to settle in and turn it up.

UPDATE:

I wanted to add a post script for this episode podcast. I got a lot of feedback about the inclusion of the first track, FDT. Most of it very positive, some not so much. To be expected really. I actually gave a significant amount of thought as to whether or not to include that song. There are clearly a significant number of reasons why one might not want to share a song like that. I carefully weighed these against my primary intention for the inclusion, to capture a cultural moment.
 
It is protest music and by definition will upset some people. This song in particular received a lot of press last year. It was recorded prior to the election. Time magazine and Rolling Stone both recommended it as one of the top Trump protest songs so I am not breaking any new ground. Hip hop also has a deep history as protest music, particularly music with an incredibly strident message (e.g. NWA - F*ck the Police). A lot of people are very upset and these are important things to recognize in out country and culture. The podcast is meant to reflect that.
 
In the podcast, I state the song does not really represent how I would approach the issue and I immediately offer up an alternative. I am fully aware that nuance will not be recognized by everyone but weighing all of those factors, I determined it was worth including. 

--------------------------------------

I'm back! And I have so much great hip hop for you today. It took a minute to get this one out not just cause I moved which threw my life into a bit of a whirlwind but also cause it's really not all the most "fun" music. Don't get me wrong there are some slamming beats and some scorching flows. However there are also some heavier lyrics dealing with real life stuff. And then on top of that, real life is just kind of crazy right now! That said, I really love this mix. There is this ever present complaint that hip hop is dead. Once again, I offer up a podcast dedicated to showing that hip hop is alive and well.

While I didn't get to go to SXSW this year, I still enjoyed the heck out of listening to all the amazing music. Once again, I've listened to somewhere around 2000 bands and narrowed it down to my 21 favorite flavors. If you want to check out the slightly less selective top 60 or so, that playlist is on Spotify here. Otherwise, just dig into this. As always, the amount of pure talent on display is incredibly humbling.

 

Also, thanks for your patience! I just moved and everything is still a big mess but thankfully I was able to record one last episode in the Hideout House. Loved that place. Sad to see it go but it's on to the next.
