SHG Radio Show, Episode 101

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 a distribution on other terrestrial radio stations), and also distributed as a global podcast through iTunes and numerous other sites. The show is normally programmed and mixed by Jonathan Clark (as DJ Bolivia), although some weeks 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 progressive and tribal house, and a small amount of trance & techno. Liner notes for this episode (SHG 101) can be seen below.

SHG Radio Show, Episode 100

Video tutorials about the production of this episode of Subterranean Homesick Grooves are at the bottom of this post.

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 a distribution on other terrestrial radio stations), and also distributed as a global podcast through iTunes and numerous other sites.

You don't even need to have a Dropbox account to download files from it.


Here’s a link so you can listen to the show or download it from SoundCloud:





Well, here we are with the 100th episode of Subterranean Homesick Grooves. I guess this is quite a milestone. To be honest though, I'm not surprised: I did start with three digit numbering of the episodes from the start, knowing that I'd enjoy the project and would want to keep producing the shows for a number of years.

This episode is probably going to be remembered as being unique not so much because of the special number 100, but rather because I used this week's episode as the focus of a series of three YouTube tutorial videos to teach people how professional DJ mixes can be created using the Ableton Live software suite. And to clarify, lest that type of production somehow detracts from the regular skills needed by a DJ to do live shows and mixes, I will also be producing a couple of additional tutorials series in upcoming months to cover live DJ'ing techniques. I'll describe those details in more detail further down this post, after the track listings.

I'd like to thank CHMA 106.9FM at Mount Allison University in eastern Canada for allowing me to get this project started. I'd also like to thank all of my regular listeners for their regular support, for sharing the show on your facebook pages, for tweeting about new episode releases, and for following on SoundCloud. You know who you are, and I hope to meet many of you in person some day.

And now, let's get back to the program. This episode is a bit different than most of the recent episodes. It isn't quite as energetic at the end as most, but I think I've picked out some interesting tracks. Several are actually older tracks from several years ago. I purposely put a different remix of Cream Sound's "Always," by one of my favorite producers (Snake Sedrick). I say "different" because I used the Stereotip Edit of this exact track on the very first episode of SHG. By the way, Cream Sound (from St. Petersburg) is somewhat unique on this show for another reason: she is one of the [unfortunately] small ranks of female producers out there. This mix also features a recent track by David Anthony, a friend of mine who was actually the first person to book me as a DJ at a "rave" style party, even though I had already been DJ'ing for fifteen years at that point.

I should point out, on an unrelated note, that today is a notable day for another reason. Today is the 30th anniversary of the passing of Thelonious Monk, one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time. If you ever get a chance, watch the 2001 movie, "Straight, No Chaser" to learn more about this legend.


Anyway, without any further ado, here are Track Listings for episode 100:

01. Reflect Grace, "I'm A Robot, Not A Human" (Original Mix).
02. Kachu MX, "Orlando" (Original Mix).
03. Monodrive, "Deeper Sight" (Monodrive's Rainy Day Mix).
04. Trim The Fat, "Disco Head" (Original Mix).
05. Philip Jo, "Su Vit Nastis" (Original Mix).
06. DJ Smilk & Black Criss, "Is The True" (Original Mix).
07. David Anthony, "High Tech Soul."
08. Bas Struik, "Transitions" (Original Mix).
09. Vincent Villani, Kevin G, & Chriis Cruz, "Planet Underground" (Original Takeover Mix).
10. John Sweet, "Sliding Behind Sun" (Claudio Climaco Remix).
11. Paul Jays, "Spiritual Battery" (Carlos Fauvrelle Remix).
12. Martin Bonansea, "Spirit Of Force" (Original).
13. Cream Sound, "Always" (Snake Sedrick Remix).
14. Ke Nobi, "Jump Into The Air" (Rodrigo Diaz Remix).
15. Arieldecks, "Indian Rules" (Original Mix).
16. Gomo, "Bandelay" (Mikel Ayerra & Ismael Alonso Remix).





Here are links either to personal websites, MySpace pages, or [usually] the SoundCloud pages for a few of the original artists and remixers/producers listed above:



Kachu MX (Mexico)
Trim The Fat (Britain)
Philip Jo (United Arab Emirates)
DJ Smilk (Colombia)
Black Criss (Colombia)
David Anthony (Canada)
Bas Struik (Netherlands)
Vincent Villani (United States)
Kevin G (United States)
Chriis Cruz (United States)
John Sweet (Britain)

Martin Bonansea (Argentina)
Cream Sound (Russia)
Snake Sedrick (Hungary)
Ke Nobi (Hungary)
Arieldecks (Spain)
Gomo (Spain)
Mikel Ayerra (Spain)
Ismael Alonso (Spain)



As mentioned above, this week's episode is somewhat special because I used it as the focus of a series of three YouTube tutorials to help teach Ableton Live users about ways to use the software in a programmed DJ'ing environment.

The first video teaches viewers how to warp tracks in Ableton, which is the key first step before the software can be used effectively for DJ'ing:





The second video is a very in-depth look at how to put together an entire DJ mix using the arrangement view of Ableton. Anyone with a basic understanding of music and of any sort of audio/technical software should be able to follow along and learn how to do the same thing:





The third video is designed to teach you the very basics of mastering (specifically focusing on how to tidy up a DJ Mix), and ends with a few thoughts about marketing your mix once it is finished and ready to share with your fans.





If you're a producer who is interested in submitting music for possible inclusion on future episodes of SHG, visit DJ Bolivia's SoundCloud dropbox. Please note that not all submitted mixes will be played on the show. If you have a track that fits the format (progressive and/or tech-house), then your chances of having the track featured will increase.

Warping Tracks in Ableton Live, for DJ'ing

I just put together an hour-long tutorial video to teach people how to warp tracks in Ableton Live, for the purpose of either performing live, or for putting together DJ mixes. Here's the video:




Essentially, this is a very basic video, so as long as you have a bit of familiarity with any type of audio editing software out there, and a basic knowledge of dance music and DJ'ing, you should be able to understand exactly what I'm teaching. After that, a bit of practice with a few dozen songs, and you should know exactly how to set your tracks up in Ableton.

Once you have tracks that are warped, you'll probably want to either perform live, or use the technology to put together DJ mixes. For my weekly radio show, Subterranean Homesick Grooves, I usually take one of three approaches to putting together a show:

1. Perform live and record the mix, while playing on either pitch-controlled CD players (I have CDJ-2000's) or on vinyl with turntables (I have Technics SL-1200 M3D's). Of the three ways to put together a show, this approach is the most fun and takes the most skill, although sometimes I won't be happy with a mix the first time, and I'll re-record the entire thing.

2. Set up the tracks in Ableton, and then perform live using Ableton and a Xone 4D mixer, with effects set up in Ableton and the MIDI controls on the mixer tied in to the Ableton effects devices. This approach is also pretty fun, and good because it's impossible to screw up your beat-mixing.

3. Set up the track in Ableton, and then lay them out in the Arrangement view instead of performing live, and use automation to control all the effects and volumes and EQ'ing. This does not enhance your skills as a DJ, and it doesn't let you show off your live mixing abilities. However, I have to use this approach to put together a fair number of my radio shows, because when I'm on the road without equipment, I can use this approach to put together a show in a hotel room.

This warping video ONLY focuses on how to warp your tracks, because it's such as important part of using Ableton for DJ'ing. It needed to be a video of its own. However, over the next few weeks/months, I'm going to put together several additional videos to illustrate how to create mixes using each of the three approaches that I've outlined above, as well as a video that just generally teaches you how to set up a mixer and Ableton and use it for live DJ'ing.

Thanks for checking this out, and I appreciate if you give a thumbs up if you found the video to be somewhat useful. Some of you are probably quite familiar with Ableton already and may find that most of this video is too basic, but remember that I have to make sure that people who aren't familiar with the software can understand the basics. Thanks for your patience in that respect.

If you have questions, feel free to ask them in the comments section on YouTube. If I can't answer them adequately with text answers, I can clarify warping techniques with another short video.

STU Graffiti Party, 2012

I just played at the Holy Cross Graffiti Party at STU this past weekend in Fredericton. As always, the crowd was great and I had a lot of fun.



The set was done on CDJ players, not through Ableton. I didn't record it, but I did write down a set list below. It was a very mainstream/top40 sort of event, and I played requests for most of the night. I ended up playing about 17 or 18 requests, and unfortunately I had requests for four songs that I didn't have (well, one that was an inappropriate genre at the time, one track that I didn't have, and two tracks that I couldn't identify based on the possibly-inaccurate titles that I was given). I played some downtempo tracks (mostly classic hip hop) for the first hour, and the dance floor was pretty packed for the last two hours, when I played a lot of older top40 hits (these were mostly requests).


Here's the set list:

01. Digable Planets, "Rebirth Of Cool"
02. Black-Eyed Peas, "Imma Be"
03. Dre, "Nuthing But a G Thang"
04. Fugees, "Ready Or Not"
05. Outkast, "Ms Jackson"
06. Kanye West, "Golddigger"
07. Notorious BIG, "Juicy"
08. ODB, "Baby I Got Your Money"
09. Nelly, "EI"
10. Nelly, "Hott In Here"
11. 50 Cent, "In Da Club"
12. Jay-Z, "Big Pimpin'"
13. House Of Pain, "Jump Around"
14. Chiddy Bang, "Ray Charles"
15. Snoop, Wiz Khalifa, & Bruno Mars, "Young, Wild, & Free"
16. Gym Class Heroes, "Stereo Hearts"
17. Jay-Z & Kanye West, "Ni**as In Paris"
18. Downtown Fiction, "Thanks For Nothing"
19. Hot Chella Rae, "I Like It Like That"
20. Lady Gaga, "Just Dance"
21. Ke$ha, "Blah Blah Blah"
22. BOB, Airplanes.
