SHG Radio Show, Episode 084

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 (084) can be seen below.

Para la información en español, vaya aquí.

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.






Here's our Podcast Feed to paste into iTunes or any other podcatcher:

Older episodes of the show are not directly available from our main servers anymore, to conserve space for more recent episodes. However, all older episodes have been posted individually on SoundCloud, and also in archives of 25 episodes apiece (convenient for bulk downloading) from DJ Bolivia's Public Dropbox folder. That Dropbox link also has folders for individual tracks and remixes, project files and stem collections for producers who want to make their own remixes, videos, and other material. You don't even need to have a Dropbox account to download files from it.


Here’s a link so you can listen to the show or download it from SoundCloud:





As usual, this week's show is a mix of mostly new releases, with just a couple of older tracks thrown into the mix (this week, the older ones were a couple favorites by Noel Sanger and Da Groovemakers). This week's show was put together in Quesnel, British Columbia. 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.

This Is Our Dream House, Volume 01

A few months ago I was asked to play a deep house set in Las Vegas. I enjoy deep house, but I rarely play live sets in that style as a DJ. However, that show went well, and I got a phenomenal amount of positive feedback about the set after I posted it online. Especially important was the fact that Marc Carnes, a former room-mate of mine (and the foremost deep house expert that I'm close friends with) gave it his stamp of approval.

I was talking to him afterwards about the set, and I decided that I'd like to share more of this kind of music with my DJ fans. So I've decided to start creating a deep house mix series. It's going to be an ambitious project. I'm probably only going to release a new mix about once every two months, but each mix is going to be four hours long, suitable for an evening of relaxing and enjoying the music properly.

I've decided to call this mix, "This Is Our Dream House." That's partly because the mix is a variety of house music, partly because deep house is often dreamy, and partly because I found a really cool graphic with that exact title to use for the cover, courtesy of Sam Brown at the Exploding Dog website. As my regular fans know, I'm a long-time fan of his art.




For those of you who aren't normally into EDM (electronic dance music), you might be curious to know the differences between my regular style of progressive/tech-house and this deep house mix. Actually, there aren't always a lot of obvious differences, because I lean a bit more towards the techy side of deep house than the pure organic stuff. So at first, this might just sound a bit like my usual style, but slower. But that would be far from accurate - the deep house in this set can be identified by a few significant differences. First, the instrumentation is often jazzier, ie. there will be Rhodes or Wurli keyboards, more horns, brass, more clean guitar sounds, and more jazzy/bluesy vocals. Also, the tempo of this set is down around 118-120bpm, whereas my mainstream club sets are usually around 128bpm and my radio shows are usually 131-134bpm.

When I played in Las Vegas, my set was a bit disjointed, because it was a fairly last-minute booking and I didn't have time to get to know the music well. Programming is the most important thing when it comes to DJ'ing. Sure, mixing tracks properly makes a DJ sound better, but programming involves picking out good music to start with, and then coming up with a suitable flow. For the Vegas set at the Castles, I had good music, but my flow was fairly random. At least with this mix, I was able to think carefully about the order of the tracks that I used. Equally important, while I cut out a lot of the quiet sections and added extra drums for the Castles set (which seemed more appropriate for a live room), with this mix I'm leaving the tracks almost entirely unchanged except for a few select edits. You'll hear quieter passages in this mix too, not just the steady beats. But a side note for the audio engineers out there: I did compress the mix in Cubase at a pretty high ratio of 3.0, with makeup gain to bring it to -2 dB final, to give a more consistent volume for listeners in cars and other distracting environments.


This mix can be downloaded as part of an archive of all 6 of DJ Bolivia's older "This Is Our Dream House" deep house mix series, from the following Google Drive link:


The mixes (produced between 2011 and 2014) 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 3.1 gigabytes (each of these mixes are four hours long).  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.

I find that, as a DJ, I rarely get time to listen to music "for fun" because I'm always doing research and being pretty analytical. However, last night, I was driving and someone in the truck asked to hear one of my radio show episodes. I played one at a good volume, uninterrupted for a full hour while driving through the desert at night under a nearly full moon, and it reminded me that these mixes are really great driving music. So whether the sun is up or the night is dark, put this show into your car's stereo and crank up the volume if you're going for a long drive! 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.

This week, I put the show together in Williams Lake, British Columbia. I was experimenting with off-beat mixing this week. Very tough to do well. It's easy enough to keep a steady beat while you're doing it, but making it sound good is always a challenge. But when it works, it sounds SO good. I tried it with several mixes in this week's show, and some turned out better than others.

This week, I put the show together in Victoria, British Columbia. I feel that the direction that I've taken with the show in the past month or so is starting to feel pretty comfortable for me. I'm still starting off with a bit of restraint, but I've been really trying to keep the beat driving throughout the show, with far fewer breakdowns than I used to have in the first seventy episodes. It's an approach that has worked well for me on the dance floor for the past few years, so why not do the same with my radio show?

Mixes: Mike Gleeson, "80's DJ Mixes"

Over the past few years, quite a few people have asked me what my all-time favorite DJ mix was. The answer was simple, and surprisingly, not a "dance music" mix, at least not in the EDM sense. A few years ago, a Canadian DJ named Mike Gleeson put together a continuous DJ mix composed entirely of rock/pop tracks from the 1980's and early 1990's. Trust me, if you like 80's tracks, you will absolutely love that mix.

I feel like he got a lot of pressure to create a follow-up mix. I certainly wanted him to, since his first mix was the kind of music that I knew inside-out, and love. Anyway, a few weeks ago, he released a follow-up to his original mix.




The download links to both mixes are below. Please note that these two mixes are being hosted on his own server (through Tucows), not through either of my own servers.


Mix Name: "1980's DJ Mix, Volume 1"
Details: 71 minutes playing time.
Link: http://www.djmikegleeson.com/audio/sets/80sMIX_VOLUME1-MIKEGLEESON.mp3

Track Listings:
01. Janet Jackson, "Alright" (Acappella) [1989].
02. Hall & Oates, "I Can't Go For That" [1981].

Mix: DJ Bolivia, "Welcome To The Machine"

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.

This is an old mix that I recorded during a massive snowstorm in the Maritimes in 2004. At the time, I'm not sure what I was thinking, but I wrote this about the mix: "The machine will play almost anything electronica, from trance, to progressive, to techno. Created during 'The White Juan,' Halifax's greatest winter storm in recorded history, this CD at first seems to be dark and oppressive. Listen carefully though, and you may instead decide that the mix is purposely restrained, steady, and calculating. Whether the music is new or old, the beat goes on..."

SHG Radio Show, Episode 080

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 (080) can be seen below.

Para la información en español, vaya aquí.

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.






Here's our Podcast Feed to paste into iTunes or any other podcatcher:
http://feeds.feedburner.com/shg

Older episodes of the show are not directly available from our main servers anymore, to conserve space for more recent episodes. However, all older episodes have been posted individually on SoundCloud, and also in archives of 25 episodes apiece (convenient for bulk downloading) from DJ Bolivia's Public Dropbox folder. That Dropbox link also has folders for individual tracks and remixes, project files and stem collections for producers who want to make their own remixes, videos, and other material. You don't even need to have a Dropbox account to download files from it.


Here’s a link so you can listen to the show or download it from SoundCloud:





Here are Track Listings for episode 080:

01. ATFC, "Bad Weed" (D Formation Remix).
02. Tonecast, "Murder & Fingerprints" (Simon & Shaker Remix).
03. Young Rebels & Francesco Diaz, "Into The Night" (Club Mix).
04. Santiago Nino, "Hotel Cocktail" (Original Mix).
05. Brendon Moeller, "Anchor" (Argy's Club Reshape).
06. Yaron Ilani, "Waters Of The Moon" (Original Mix).
07. Domased Electronica, "Naiad" (Original Mix).

12. Voltek, "Babylon" (Original Mix).

14. George From The Jungle, "Rodeo Winner."





This week, I put the show together in Port Alice, British Columbia, which is a very remote community at the north end of Vancouver Island. I didn't have internet access at the time, so I took a slightly different approach than usual and picked everything from my archives. 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.


Here are links to either personal websites, MySpace pages, or [usually] the SoundCloud pages for a few of the original artists and remixers/producers listed above:

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.
