Groovetech Podcast 071 – Techno, House and Minimal

I belong to the very small group of people in Toronto who doesn’t live for weekends at Comfort Zone or getting music “tips” from TRC. I can’t remember the last time I saw a local DJ really break any boundaries, and I think that is because there is no experimentation in tech-house. It’s easy to copy a track you like, but there’s no soul. To me it’s boring. Choosing music with their own style is really important to me. Lately, I’ve come to find more and more people who feel like I do about the endless, mundane purgatory that is tech house.That’s until they suddenly remember they absolutely love it and dance jerkily away. Personally, I think you lose something when everything is exactly the same. So while I grimly contemplate how many more vodka soda’s the liver will have to suffer before night’s in Toronto begin sounding pleasing to my ears.

Since You’re Here …

… I have a small favour to ask. Did you know it can take me up to 8 hours to curate, master, edit, upload and share my weekly podcasts? That’s a full day of work but I am happy to share my vinyl collection with audiences.

Unfortunately I am also an adult, and maintaining my gear, turntables and records do carry expenses. So I have setup my virtual tip jar searching for a coffee. I didn’t setup a Patreon page to make a living, or get rich, rather, I’ve setup my Patreon with the intention of using it as a channel to reach out to my followers and fans.

If making a recurring donation on Patreon is too much of a long term commitment, perhaps buying me a coffee suits your budget. Click here to donate a few dollars using Paypal, otherwise, my future would be much more secure if you were to become a Patron by clicking the orange button below.
