SHG Radio Show, Episode 079

Welcome to this week's edition of Subterranean Homesick Grooves™, a weekly electronica-based radio show presented on CHMA FM 106.9 at Mount Allison University in Atlantic Canada, and also distributed as a global podcast through iTunes and numerous other sites. The show is normally programmed and mixed by Jonathan Clark (as DJ Bolivia), although some weeks feature guest mixes by other Canadian DJ's. The show encompasses many sub-genres within the realm of electronic dance music, but the main focus is definitely on progressive and tribal house, and a small amount of trance & techno. Liner notes for this episode (079) can be seen below.

By the way, if you're looking for DJ mixes in styles other than progressive/tech-house, check out www.djbolivia.ca/mixes.html. That page has a number of mainstream/top40 dance mixes (the "Workout Mix" series), as well as some deep house, drum and bass, and other styles.

Show: DJ Bolivia in Tokyo in 2007

I'm almost finished posting all the archived sets that I have from live shows now. This will be the second last. It's from when I played at Velours in Tokyo about four years ago.

Velours was an incredible venue. It was fairly small with a capacity of about 200-250 people (actually, not that small by Japanese standards). However, it was very, very nice inside, with chandeliers and a very upscale clientele.

Although I was initially going to do a CD-based set of newer music, once I got inside and saw the clientele, I realized that they would respond just as positively to slightly older music, so I played a set of pure vinyl. You may recognize quite a few of these tracks as being ones I played in other live shows during that time period. However, the equipment in the DJ booth was great, there was a sound engineer to help me out, and the set went very smoothly - probably one of my best live sets ever (to that point), despite not being completely new music.





Here are the tracklistings:
(Tracks 1-10 on CD1, tracks 11-20 on CD2).

01. Project 54 feat. Jason Lord, "Brother" (Jesse Garcia Tribal Spain Remix).
02. Gainer & Rogers, "Futurenature" (Original Mix).
03. Minilogue, "In A Deeper Motion" (Original Mix).
04. D-Formation, "Carry On" (Original Version).
05. Robert Travis, "Seduction" (Avanti Mix).
06. MV, "Come Back To Me" (Original Mix).
07. Transducers, "See You Dance."
08. Alma Matris, "Rapido" (Back In Town Edge Mix).
09. Tilt, "Twelve" (Dousk Mix).
10. Tone Depth & Soul Tan feat. Stephanie Vezina, "Broken" (G. Pal Safe Haven Mix).
11. G. Pal vs. El Greco, "A Prayer Beneath."
12. Bush People, "Nothing's Safe."
13. Little Green Men feat. Eliza, "Through With You" (Thomas Penton Remix).
14. Chris Cargo, "Saddle Funk" (Graeme L Remix).
15. Piliavin & Zimbardo, "Just Once."
16. D-Formation, "Signs And Portents" (Original BF's Version).
17. Frank Pellegrino feat. Lauren Marie, "Pleasure" (Frank Pellegrino Original Mix).
18. Dan Berkson, "The Other Side."
19. Subtone Trio, "Load" (Chab Remix).
20. North Atlantic, "Mind Filter" (Trendroid Croc Hunter Remix).





This mix can be downloaded as part of an archive of all 28 of DJ Bolivia's available recordings of live shows, from the following Google Drive link:


The recordings are compressed as a RAR archive, which can be opened natively in Windows.  If you're using a Mac, you can use a free utility to open the RAR (popular examples are "The Unarchiver" and the "UnRarX" app).  The password to open the archive is simply 'bolivia' and the size of the download is 5.6 gigabytes.  If you have problems downloading this archive from the above Google Drive link, you can email DJ Bolivia at djbolivia@gmail.com for an alternate download link.

Thanks for your interest in these old historical mixes!


When I was booked for this show, the promoter was a guy named Dave Twomey. I checked out his background, and it turned out that he was an incredible DJ himself. It was a very cool night, and I was glad not just to have played, but also to have met him. A very talented and generous guy.

Anyway, last year, Dave was diagnosed with cancer. He's got a blog online right now which talks about his progress and fundraising, and it has recently seen a huge swell in popularity. I really urge you to check out some of the DJ sets that he has online (I'll post a few links below), but first, check out his blog:

http://mindlessfulness.blogspot.com

Pay attention to the unique spelling in the actual web URL!

I want to publicly be one of the many, many people wishing Dave the best of luck with his treatment regimen.





Edit: Sadly, Dave passed away in 2013.

Mixes: DJ Bolivia Live in Edmonton & Winnipeg, 2002

I've been playing around with my DJ Mixes page on my main site a bit lately, trying to tidy it up and provide better info. Some people are probably curious about track listings for some mixes, and other than the Subterranean Homesick Grooves radio shows, track listing info is generally almost impossible to find for some of my older stuff. So to fix that, I'm in the process of digging up track listings for everything that isn't already available, and publishing them here in my blog so they can be found more easily.

Today, I'm publishing info on two of my oldest (and favorite) mixes. These are a real blast from the past for me, as it's been almost ten years since I recorded them! The mixing is a little rough in places. They are (like all my early mixes) 100% vinyl, mixed on two decks. Listening to these again brings back some good memories. Enjoy ...

Sampling in Music - Creativity or Lack Thereof?

One of the more contentious areas of argument in the modern music industry is the ethics behind the use of sampling in the creation of new music. Some people argue that it proves or enhances creativity. Others say that it is just theft, and is used by artists who aren't creative enough to come up with their own original works.

Basically, for those who don't understand sampling, it is when someone takes a piece of an existing song and uses it in (or as the entire basis for) another song. The sample can be simple, like two or three notes or chords, or it can be more complex, consisting of a full bassline or a more complicated chord set of chord structures. Sometimes the artist will copy the exact sound from the old song, and other times they'll just create a very similar replication of their own.

I'm going to give you a few examples, and I'll start with one that probably very few people are aware of. Listen to the first few seconds of each of these two songs. One is the very well-known "Paper Planes" by MIA from just a couple years ago. The other is an old song called "Straight To Hell" by The Clash, which I listened to a lot when I was younger:







House music and Hip Hop are probably the two genres which rely most heavily on the use of sampling. Interestingly, in an evolutionary sense, house and hip hop are very closely related genres, although most people wouldn't expect that. I won't get into that discussion, but suffice it to say that they both evolved from very similar origins, just like chimpanzees and humans shared common ancestors.

I first became acquainted with the use of sampling when I was just a kid. My parents had a lot of old 45 records from the 50's and 60's, and I used to listen to them constantly and watch shows like "Name That Tune" on TV. One of the records was a novelty production called "The Flying Saucer," by Buchanan & Goodman. They experimented with a story of a UFO that landed on earth, and pretended they were doing a newscast of the event, but threw in clips from eighteen other popular 50's songs as part of the story (yes, they eventually got sued). It's pretty odd, but as a kid, I thought it was pretty fascinating:





Anyway, I'm going to show you five other pairs of songs where the first song uses samples from the second. Most are really obvious. The last one is far less obvious (it's in the bass line). See if you can figure out the samples used.


"Ice Ice Baby" (Vanilla Ice) samples "Under Pressure" (Queen)







"Rapper's Delight" (Sugarhill Gang) samples "Good Times" (Chic)







"I'll Be Missing You" (Puffy) samples "Every Breath You Take" (Police)







"Barbara Streisand" (Duck Sauce) samples "Hallo Bimmelbahn" (Nighttrain)







"Rhythm Nation" (Janet Jackson) samples "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" (Sly and the Family Stone)






As I said, this last one is pretty tough to notice if you're not looking for it specifically. Some artists will manipulate a sample heavily in order to try to change it significantly before they recycle it, either though the use of tempo changes, pitch changes, effects processing, or a combination of all of the above.

That's all for now, but at some point in the future, I think I'll probably make another post with some comparisons of some really subtle samples.

I put together this week's show while I was in Victoria, British Columbia. I feel like I've got a slightly new direction for the show right now. For the past few weeks, I've been experimenting with omitting my vocals at the start of the show, so people can focus more on the music. Also, this week I think you'll find that things are a lot more energetic than most of the shows from earlier in the summer. In the past, I've usually ramped up from a more refrained start to building up energy by the end of the show. But I think for shows in the future, I'll be bringing the energy levels up higher right from the beginning. I always appreciate any feedback that listeners want to leave, either by emailing me at djbolivia@gmail.com or by posting on my fan page on facebook.

If you're a producer who is interested in submitting music for possible inclusion on future episodes of SHG, visit DJ Bolivia's SoundCloud dropbox. Please note that not all submitted mixes will be played on the show. If you have a track that fits the format (progressive and/or tech-house), then your chances of having the track featured will increase.

If you're a radio station programming director, and would like to add Subterranean Homesick Grooves to your regular programming lineup, contact djbolivia@gmail.com for details. We currently release SHG as an advance download to a number of stations globally on a weekly basis (at no charge), and we welcome inquiries from additional outlets.

Go to the Mix Downloads page on the main DJ Bolivia website if you'd like to check out a number of our older shows, or visit our SoundCloud page for individual tracks and remixes.

We also have a file containing complete track listings from all of DJ Bolivia's radio shows, studio mixes, and live sets. The PDF version can be viewed from within your browser by clicking directly.
