R1S vs TPHP Episode 48 – The Great Collaboration!

Hello All,

Welcome to a very special episode of Room 1ne Sessions.  Before I go on, I’m having some trouble with uploading this episode in the usual way at the moment but you can listen to and download the show hassle free through SoundCloud by clicking the link at the top.

So, yes, 48 is the new 50 it seems as I have put together a milestone episode with my good friend, Mr Phil-Harmonic Podcast himself, Phil Dickinson.  Welcome, Sir, to the historic Room 1ne and may I say what a privilege it is to be a part of this harmony and share your hallowed airwaves as well.

I don’t blog like Phil.  I tried it once and felt a bit sleepy.  Suffices to say though that this man blogs for the both of us and more!  As I explain in the show, Phil has been blogging about EDM for many years now, dating back to well before the inauguration of The Phil-Harmonic Podcast, and ‘he knows his shit’ as they say.  Where I am a lazy enthusiast with a penchant for the simple, Phil is a musical activist, burning through .html as if it were a pile of bras in order to get his message to the world.  As far as I can tell from knowing the man and his blog as I do, his message is simple – EDM IS AWESOME.  LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT IT.  I, for one, am all ears.

But enough of this rambly nonsense.  Phil and I have reached episode 48 of our respective podcasts at the same time and decided to celebrate this mutual milestone with a collaboration in which both of us showcase not just the tracks we love but the styles and the journeys we love to portray.  It helps that we have pretty similar tastes for the most part but perhaps where you’ll notice some difference in this 3 hour + montage, in which Phil has taken first watch, is the way TPHP ebbs and flows where Room 1ne builds to a final crescendo.  Phil has always been a ‘half and half’ kinda guy – first half down-tempo with the second half ramped up.  Perhaps it’s the slightly shorter than normal nature of his episode 48 that means this mould has been slightly broken but, regardless, I’ve always felt Phil keeps things together very neatly through his mixes, interchanging between styles with the minimum of fuss.  You’ll hear a housey bassline lead into a trancey riff and think little of it.  It’s a skill make no mistake but also a fundamental difference between our two shows as Room 1ne explores a style then leaves it behind in search of more beats per minute. The bottom line is, despite the fact we’d both say this episode seems to have been jinxed as we’ve struggled to get it from the turntables to the interwebs to your ears, we’re thrilled with the result of this unique opportunity to showcase our respective shows to the other’s regular audience and hope you all are too.

Remember to vote for you favourite track from the Room 1ne half of episode 48 by voting in the poll on the Facebook page.  And, of course, any feedback is, as always, great to hear and hugely appreciated.

All the breast and thanks so much as always for listening and for your support. Enjoy the show!

Ben
