Groovetech Podcast 076 – Techno, House and Minimal

One of the big hopes for digital music was for a faster way for everyone in the food chain to get paid. While that sounds good on paper, unfortunately, it hasn’t quite worked out the way anyone in the industry expected. When it comes to music, Big Data is an aggregation of mediocrity. Many algorithms on platforms like Pandora and Soundcloud are simply associating popular tracks with one another; as a consequence, it takes longer for newer and unique music to enter the system and start being recommended to people. Can musical creativity and the song machine co-exist? At least at this point, it doesn’t look algorithms will replace the DJ anytime soon. Filtering noise is truly a gray area.

About Andreas

rouchos-dj-toronto-techno-house_Intro_HeaderAndreas Marouchos (Short, Rouchos), is a DJ from Toronto. Playing Techno and House, Andreas has been a professional DJ since 1998, playing sets in four countries. He is also a podcasting pioneer, with live audio and video mixes stretching as far back as the last millennium. Despite the progress of technology, Andreas still collects and spins 100% of music on Vinyl as he believes that “putting a laptop between a DJ and the crowd seems boring”.

You can catch his podcasts on CTRL ROOM and DJFM

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.
