Now then. Now. Then. Now; then; and the future. Now and then.

Resonance FM has been off air for a week or two, while its engineering team carries out scheduled upgrades and maintenance. Therefore we have been blessed with a short break, two-thirds of the way through our radio series.

This has meant that I forgot to upload last week’s show. Which is a stupid thing, because it was actually the boom shit. So (a) steel yourself for next Tuesday’s show, which will rock hard, and (b) read on for an immediate fix of magical audio/deep wisdom.

Here’s last week’s episode, Grime, in which we learn about the flow of music and energy within London’s maligned but burgeoning underground grime scene, during an amazing interview with Rinse FM DJ and Butterz blogger Elijah, and then demonstrating our knowledge of the scene in a discussion of its specialist vocabulary, the structure of its music and the best way for a producer to promote his/her music within the scene:

We’ve been gasping to bring you some of our fiery wisdom about the cutting edge of London’s electronic youth music, and here it comes: this week, we’ll be talking to Rinse FM DJ and Butterz blogger Elijah about the trials and tribulations of trying to promote grime music in the teeth of a world recession and what might be described as less than 100% support from the local metropolitan police.

The Technicians, Cornwell and Braidy, present a linguistic analysis of grime lyrics, and discuss the mechanics of getting your tracks heard by grime MCs.

Back! Caught you looking for the same thing. And this week’s show does, admittedly, cover broadly similar topics in a not wildly inconsistent format. This week, we have a fascinating interview with North London analog electronics engineer Theo Argiriadis; we apply Theo’s advice about valves to improve the sound of our listeners’ early techno tracks, and the Museum’s toilets. Along the way, the Technicians learn some important truths about motorway service stations.

Museum of Techno on Resonance 104.4FM 21 July

Shibbidy-bop. On July 21st at 22:30 UK time (18:30 Eastern US, 15:30 US Pacific), we broadcast the third instalment of Museum of Techno on Resonance 104.4FM.

Our topic was an in-depth discussion in two strands, relating to hip hop and common dermatological complaints. So engrossed in the discussion were we that we forgot to interview anyone this week. Our apologies go out to anyone.

Thanks for your hotly glowing feedback about the show so far: we hear that you have been “laughing like a mentalist, ” and judging our work “amazing”. Because we are useless at self-promotion, we would encourage you to tell all your friends – and, in fact, anyone within a 1-mile radius of your current geographical location – about us.

Here you may listen to and even download the episode, Hip Hop and Dermatology. We hope you enjoy it. Obviously you will: it rocks the hut.

Museum of Techno on Resonance FM – Their Law

Set audio-enabled browsers to maximum bass: on Tuesday 14 July at 22:30 UK time, Museum of Techno – series 1 kicked off on Resonance FM.

Joining us for lunch in the Museum Cafe was writer, researcher and activist Jeremy Gilbert, with whom we assessed the power of the Rave as a political force and its run-in with the Criminal Justice Act 1994.

And the Technicians continued their re-categorisation of the Museum’s kick drum collection, offering their opinions and expertise on such topics as how ravers would perform in an actual civil war situation, dance music’s evolution to mainstream acceptability, and where to purchase post-club cornish pasties.

Here is an MP3 for your listening pleasure: on Soundcloud, and on the MoT website itself:

Museum of Techno on Resonance FM – Pilot Episode

Yes in actual deed: in May we broadcast a pilot episode of our forthcoming radio series on Resonance FM. It rocked the hut, Resonance rewound and reloaded several times, the world screamed with love.

But all this adulation hasn’t yet resulted in any attention for us from those lovely lady clubbers, so we have decided to release the show in MP3 “podcast” format for your delectation and education.

The show features Museum Administrator, Diane Waymire, demonstrating our new audio tour system; the Technicians begin a major recategorisation of the Sir James Soame Collection of Booming Kickdrums; and we smash the sonic atom with Phil Durrant, who tells us about his history in piano house and hardcore rave production, and his subsequent journey into the minimal world of micro-improvisation.

It’s an awesome audio accomplishment, and we hope it rocks your world.

Kind regards

Mr Braidy
