Podcast 87: MUTEK_10 with Michel Pontbriand

In earlier days, a MUTEK showcase commonly involved a room of pasty guys standing still while endless bleeps and blips filled the air. And while we’d never contest the importance of that particular breed of electronic music (which remains the foundation of most MUTEK events), the festival has seen a considerable amount of growth and variety over the last decade, perhaps most evident in the lineup for this year’s annual Montreal festival.

So we figured we’d celebrate the fact that Appleblim can play alongside Moderat and Ghislain Poirier will share a stage with Nortec Collective with a special MUTEK mix. Montreal-based DJ, producer, and classically trained musician Michel Pontbriand stepped up to assume the task of curating a podcast in support of the upcoming MUTEK 10th Anniversary event, set to kick off next week on May 27. The Musique Risquée signee and longtime friend of the MUTEK crew took a long, hard look at this year's roster, and his mix accordingly reflects its diversity, traversing house, techno, dubstep, downtempo, and more, all in just over an hour.

Thanks for the feedback, we're working to correct the download problem for those outside of the US and should have it fixed today.

Hey folks, we don't filter our downloads by country, but there appears to be a firewall issue that we are having trouble pinpointing, to do with our server host and our content distributor not talking to one another. We're working very hard to resolve the issue and we'll post once it's resolved.

Andrew Smith Wrote

OK, we've made some adjustments and believe that the problem should be resolved. If anyone that has had trouble with the downloads could please try again and post a comment with their results, that would be great!
