Ilictronix Podcast: The Juxtaposition Edition

Claude and Adam share their favorite tracks of the week and talk about; Minimal, Orbital, IDM, My Love is Underground, and more. Adam shares his list of, quote, "CHUNKY DJ BOMBS I'VE JUST ABOUT RINSED".

The ilictronix podcast for this week is live! We have opposite moods when it comes to our selections this week, but that's part of the reason I wanted to start doing the podcast again, as you all know I adore peeking into other folk's listening histories. Speaking of, this episode is much more conversational than our last few, we kinda drift from topic to topic which might not be for everyone but is again another reason I really wanted these to return. It's not often these days I get to talk electronic at length, so I have to thank Adam for that, as well as editing the whole thing together. Tracklist and notes follow as per usual.

B12 - Hall Of Mirrors

Claude’s picks:
Felix Da Housecat - Marine Mood
Marshall Jefferson Vs. Noosa Heads - Mushrooms (Salt City Orchestra Out There Mix)
Ginrei - Hello, Weather
µ-Ziq - Hasty Boom Alert
Ochre - REM Sleep Research

Adam’s Picks
KMA Productions - Cape Fear
NY Stomp - The NY House Track
SE62 - True Force
Paris Underground Trax - Sexy Thing Remix
Bicep - Keep Keep

Dreamer G - I Got That Feeling

Show Notes:
I talk in this show (and maybe a few in the past. And probably will in the future too tbh) Ishkur's Guide To Electronic Music which is a really neat resource if you're looking to discover stuff from specific genres (though I take issue with some of the names Ishkur applies to them), but even if you're not looking for new stuff to pickup, it's pretty interesting as a interactive map of genres roots and their histories!

Adam just linked me to a big list of tunes this guy on discogs hates, it's similar to the review he mentions in the show and includes a huge teardown of Stardust (and various other cult and other big electronic tunes) you can find here. It's the complete opposite of how I try approach criticism but if you need your daily dose of vitriol it's an interesting read, if some iffy reasoning for some of the entries.

And with that, we are done for another week of Podcasting! Me and Adam will be back with more same time same channel next week. As always, stay safe and enjoy the music. We'll leave the light on for ya.
