#LoopBerlin on the Web

We had serious #FOMO this weekend as Loop Berlin, fast becoming the most cutting-edge music festival in the entire world, took place at the Funkhaus Berlin. Without our superstar intern Katharine to write about it, we’ve selected some of our favorite posts from the weekend.

Honored guest and new music pioneer Goldie had some interesting quips about the democratization of electronic music:

Ethan Hein, music educator at NYU’s @musedlab pointed out how useful computer music is in education:

With the recent Ableton purchase of Max for Live developers Cycling74, of course they made an appearance:

And BOTH original Together Boston (#tgthr1) guests, Machine Drum and DJ/Rupture (h/t @BeatReasearch), had interesting talks on the power of process:

While JLin was the first to admit trusting yourself is the first step:

Then, of course, came the real stars of the show, the astonishing now of Loop’s incredible installations and performances:

It seems the closing performance of Nosaj Thing stole the show in the end, perfectly capturing one of the catchphrases born at #LoopBerlin:

The Screen is Your Stage

I have seen no such thing like this before. @nosajthing #loopberlin

Want to learn more? You’re in luck. This Friday we have a free seminar with an Ableton super-user! RSVP:

New Music from Subalias

Subalias- Mitchell Owens
If you have taken our Music Production Program or been to a free workshop, (or to, you know, our 8 year-old annual music festival), you’ve interacted with Mitchell, a/k/a Subalias.

He has new music out!

“Be Back” is classic Subalias, taking a snippet of a sample, and, using nothing more than imagination, turning it into a deep, meditative jaunt through the tempered window of the soul.

Why not go and buy it at Bandcamp?

Want to learn from Mitchell? In his class, you’ll explore your inner musician, diving in and out of Ableton, the workstation of choice for today’s modern producer. Email me today!

Watch Blade Runner Black Out 2022, Scored by Flying Lotus

In anticipation of the release of Blade Runner 2049 (to which our CEO already has tickets for), get psyched with this animated short film featuring the music of new music icon Flying Lotus and Cowboy Bebop director Shinichiro Watanabe. Needless to say, FlyLo was excited:

Watch it here via Crunchyroll.

Film geeks are freaking about about the Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack, because the original was “one of the best soundtracks to one of the best films of all time.

Want to score your own soundtrack? Ableton can do that! We’ll let you know how:

Worldwide FM Live from Mmmmaven


Anyone who knows our Co-Founders Alex and David know they are massive fans of the legendary DJ, label-owner, and champion aesthete Gilles Peterson. Mr. Peterson has led a movement in the UK and around the world for tasteful and eloquent disco, chill-out, afro-beat, grime and who knows what. His taste exceeds many.

Mr. Peterson, in contrast, is a huge fan of Somerville-based label Cultures of Soul. Their latest 12″ includes, in a full-circle, a red-hot remix from Boston’s own Soul Clap.

So when Cultures of Soul head honcho Deano Sounds (who also happens to be a regular at Soulelujah) needed a studio to record a special Boston installment for Worldwide FM, Peterson’s exceedingly tasteful internet radio show, we were more than happy to oblige. Here is the result: four hours of deep African rock, lost Boston jazz, Japanese disco, Gospel, you name it. For more on Deano, Uchenna, and Andre, and the labyrinthine tracklisting, visit the Worldwide website.
