Whenever the latest RA Live Session comes out I drop everything to see what the latest and greatest has to offer. In a world where DJ’s reign supreme, the come up seems to be strong with those looking to innovate and create on the fly. David August has already had a big week with the release his official remix for The Acid which is rapidly racking up the play counts, and this RA Session will be one in the same. Sampling the revered Alfred Hitchcock, August finds inspiration in the author’s haunting words of wisdom as he creates a fully improvised 16 minute live piece that is bar none my favorite session to date.
Each month, Resident Advisor releases the RA Top 50 Tracks Chart— DJs create and submit charts on RA all month, then the most charted tracks across all charts make up the monthly “chart of charts” so to speak. Most, although not all, of these tracks can be found on our beloved Spotify, which I’ve spent the last week digesting. Basically this means that every month we’ll have the ultimate Spotify playlist available for you to stream here, courtesy of these brilliant minds.
