SHG Radio Show, Episode 293

Welcome to this week's edition of Subterranean Homesick Grooves™, a weekly electronica-based radio show presented originally on CHMA FM 106.9 at Mount Allison University in Atlantic Canada (but expanded to distribution on other terrestrial and internet-based radio stations), and also distributed as a global podcast through iTunes. The show is normally programmed and mixed by Jonathan Clark (as DJ Bolivia), although some weeks very occasionally 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 tech-house and techno, and a small amount of progressive, trance, & minimal. Due to the mix of styles, you may hear combinations of tracks that wouldn't normally be featured together in a DJ's live set, but this show is intended to feature various styles of electronic/dance music. Liner notes for this episode (SHG 293) 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.

Collaborating with Remote Artists

In today's world of bedroom studios and global collaboration, it's not uncommon to find musicians working with friends who are based in other towns or cities, or even in distant countries.

If you're a producer who has a friend in another location, and you'd like them to record some instrument or vocal tracks for one of your projects, the process is not that difficult.  However, it can be intimidating for a musician who has never tried it before.  This video should help.

In the video, I've tried to explain how a musician with a basic (but good quality) portable audio recorder can lay down some tracks for a producer, check on a laptop that the recording levels were appropriate (using free software called Audacity), and then share the audio files with a producer using Dropbox or a similar service.

The target audience for this video is producers who need to coach musicians through the process of creating and sharing such a recording, and for musicians who want to record their instrumental or vocal performances to be used in professional-sounding music.  Total run-time on the video is about forty minutes.

In the coming weeks, I'm going to be putting together a few more tutorials for my Audio Recording series, where I go through the whole process of creating a track from scratch, including sections from the perspective of the musician who is collaborating on the project remotely.






My YouTube channel has quite a few tutorial videos relating to DJ'ing, audio editing software, music production, and studio equipment. I have an organized list of those videos in the index of my "videos" page on my main website. If you're interested in any of those topics, you should bookmark this page right now:

www.djbolivia.ca/videos


Thanks for your interest in my blog and videos, and thanks for sharing this post or links to any of the videos.

About a year ago, I put together a series of four videos teaching people the basics and some moderately in-depth tricks about using the Jamstix drum production software, produced by Rayzoon.

Subterranean Homesick Grooves is a weekly specialty EDM music show with a basic weekly audience base of about 1500 listeners per week through podcasting, direct downloads, and distribution on a small number of internet-based radio networks, plus another hundred or so listeners through SoundCloud, and an unknown number of listeners through terrestrial FM broadcast. 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.
