Our Tech School on SOONish Podcast

Excited to be sharing with you the latest SOONish Podcast: A tech-and-culture podcast from @hubspokeaudio and journalist Wade Roush. “The future is shaped by technology—but technology is shaped by us.”

“We can’t predict what kind of music people will want to make or hear in the future. But judging from the sounds coming out of today’s studios and clubs, it’s a good bet that the tunes of tomorrow will be heavily mediated by digital technology.

This week’s show asks how software has changed the way composers and performers make music, and how our tools for creating music will evolve in the near future.”

We were psyched to get them in touch with alummmni Biyeun who says:

I spent like 5 or 6 hours in [Tresor] and danced until I didn’t have the energy anymore, and it was therapeutic. The music is so powerful it can take you into a completely different state. My initial reaction was: Why haven’t I heard this before?

Listen to Biyeun wax even more philosophically about how she learned to DJ, her tips to success, Vault Boston, and much more…

Even our Co-Founder David Day gets in on the action:

That is your future of music right there: Everyone is a musician, we’re all making music any time, all the time, and all we hear is new music, and it’s from us.

Thank you SOONish!

Speaking of technology, have you taken a virtual tour of our technology lab(s)?

New Confute Aperture EP + Two Hour Mix

Irish techno maven Gary Curran, aka Confute, has a new EP out! And to celebrate, he’s engaged us with an 2-hour DJ mix. Using 27 tracks in all, Curran (formerly of the Japanese Popstars), masterfully weaves in originals from his brand-new Aperture EP.

LISTEN:

Confute comes showcasing his mastery of balancing dark against light on his second release, Aperture, for Four One Records.

Opening track “Aperture” is tense, teasing techno, pieced together perfectly to pound any soundsystem. Once the bass opens, you are undoubtedly hooked in for the ride.

The heartbeat like hypnotism of “Hummer” is almost an anxious affair, laced with twisting arpeggiators that wander effortlessly in and through the haunting atmospherics and whispers.

“Frugal” is filled with little layers of bells dancing along to the summer warmth. Simple and yet beautiful.

Closing off the EP is “Syzygy”, a dark pursuit into the unknown, creating a memorable spacious feel.

There is more than enough variation in the Aperture EP for everyone to enjoy.

Having previously released 3 Albums, with Gung Ho, EMI and Bedrock, and an ever increasing remix catalogue for artists such as Beyonce, Groove Armada, Pete Tong, Daft Punk, 30 Seconds To Mars, Depeche Mode, Gorillaz, Benny Benassi and Kylie Minogue and more, Gary has decided to bring his individual flare for writing electronic music to the forefront as Confute.

Soundcloud redesign shines spotlight on creator communities

A much needed home screen change

SoundCloud has introduced a refreshed home screen that allows users to see more music from the service’s most popular independent creators. The refreshed home screen features song collections sorted by genre and curated playlists popular in the platform’s community. The new home screen is a welcome update that should help differentiate the struggling service against rival offerings from Spotify, Apple, Google, and Amazon.

Co-Founder Alex Ljung sure is excited:
