Love it!

Always something of interest. Interviews with artists will hold up much better than reviews of the days shiny thing. Keep it about the people.

Could be so much more

An occasional gem but fails to deliver what is expected from the website which is full of excellent product review. This podcast is a must for anyone who is interested in obscure drone sounds in random movies or recording of banging sounds in a loop. Littered with excellent historical pods but few and far between.
Try finding a topic for the modern day synth player. Ever heard of Trent Reznor or many other fascinating stories that would have a pulse that would speak to today’s generation as opposed to someone in pleated pants dusting off their vintage.

Electronic music history, not production

I was thrilled when I heard that SoS was making an electronic music production podcast. Here was a chance for them to show, not just describe in words, the product reviews, techniques and tools that appear in writing. But that’s not what this podcast does, unfortunately.

The podcast thus far consists of interviews with figures from electronic music history. Personally, I don’t find that interesting, but I know others do. The problem as I see it is that this is a poor use of the podcast platform. These interviews would be 99% the same in writing.

Look at the other new SoS mixing podcast: it’s perfectly exploiting the medium. The podcaster plays comparisons of tools and techniques rather than asking someone to describe those things in words.

If you want to add a music production history biography podcast, go for it. But please don’t waste this opportunity to actually demonstrate the electronic music sounds, techniques and tools that you write about.
