Podcast review: Resident Advisor

As the best online-only dance magazine in the world, there are many reasons to visit Resident Advisor. They do international club listings, ticket sales, features on new and established artists, short documentaries, a forum and an aggregated news feed from other clubbing-related blogs and sites. Yet their weekly podcast series is a defining attraction for dancers, DJs and enthusiasts across the globe.
Split into two distinct categories, the regular RA Podcast is a mix compilation from a wildly different but utterly essential new DJ roster, which has been running for 362 editions at time of writing. Guests over the last year have included Hessle Audio’s Pearson Sound, the off-the-wall Haxan Cloak (how many times have Sunn O))) appeared in these mixes?), Michael Mayer, Joy Orbison and Glasgow’s own Auntie Flo. Running alongside this is Resident Advisor Exchange (146 editions), a series of interviews, aimed at those interested in the business side of things, with label bosses, DJs, tech creators and so on. You need to be signed up to download, and note that the mix editions are only available for a month before being archived.
