Continuing to experiment with the new SoundCloud. I created a set with a few of my tracks in it alongside some friends’ and acquantainces’ tracks (and a couple mixes). Suddenly my play counts have skyrocketed (by the count on the player) although the stats page doesn’t reflect it yet. Perhaps SoundCloud is recommending the set, or tracks within it, as being related to other tracks they may be listening to. In any case this probably gets more plays for everybody who’s included.
So far it includes tracks from Steve Cowan (i.e. me – “nebula”), Arthur Oskan, E.R.A., Hawkeye and Cosmosuave, plus sets from Mike Gibbs and Sarah Shaw-Cowan. A good cross-section of Friends and Idols.
[update 2012-12-20: added two tracks by Flim]
Here’s the set. I will likely continue to add to it.
The recordings from last weekend’s wildly successful event Some Like it Deep in Toronto are here. Have a listen to these three great online DJ mixes featuring deep house and deep techno from Boots Boogie, v0ins and E.R.A!
Starting Saturday, August 4, Tota Lounge will host a new monthly night called Some Like It Deep, showcasing a deeper side of house and techno music. Admission is free, drinks are cheap and the atmosphere is fun and friendly.
