Listener Sunday :)

Since Sunday nights are sorta slow, I have made a commitment :honeybee: to log on to the platform Sunday night and interact with the platform by sharing a playlist or just playing a track.

We can listen apart or listen together :slight_smile: .

aight, first selection for DJ boopboop.

This playlist was inspired by the music people play at my gym. It’s mostly an excuse to listen to Mortal Soul.

this weekend just straight

starting off with

checking out this singer-songwriter this weekend

I’m gearin’ up for Listener Sunday tonight :wine_glass:

this weekend, focusing on expanding my CaribFest playlist, discovering some Trini artists in the catalogue, and noticing the overlap between techno from Cameroon with what’s usually blasted from the caribfest party vehicles.

noticing here that that it wasn’t blatantly obvious to me that the playlist was private, so bumping this PR from @piper

also noticing there’s no reggaeton in the catalogue? No rocksteady either which is surprising. No salsa either? Maybe there is, but just not tagged.

update, found more

further update - there’s a whole label devoted to Caribbean Festival music, but since many of the albums are compilations they’re essentially unfindable (due to issues discussed here).

I found it by

  • Searching for Trinidad and Tobago
  • Clicking on all the artists and noticing that while they had no tracks, many of them did have a label
  • Clicked on all the labels
  • Looked at the labels from Trinidad and Tobago (which don’t show up in the country search for some reason)
  • Scrolled down and saw a bunch of tracks.
  • Added tracks to playlist.

Recently and today, it’s been a lot of sandy.hoover

interesting project by one of the members: https://www.mixmi.app/

@boopboop You seem to really be aware of the new stuff on the platform. If you want to suggest anything for this radio show I’m working on, please do.

I’m pitching the show as “Monthly round up of new releases on Resonate, the ethical streaming platform. Curated by David Carpenter (The Argent Grub) and the Resonate community.”

My next playlist is taking shape here (and is subject to change):

More like “what’s popular” :wink: but sure I will be happy to collaborate :slight_smile:

Great. As a minimum, I just need pointing at anything (new) that you think is worth featuring. (Maybe we could drop the new?)

What I’d love to get to though at some point is either/both members and artists recording a short (voice) piece about a track, why they like it, and introducing it. I could then use that in the show.

For artistis maybe a “This is me. Here’s one of mine. Here’s another person on the platform you should check out)” Recorded to a phone and emailed would be fine.

Thanks @boopboop
