On this month's episode, Kerri Chandler gives us a guided tour of New York and Moxie investigates how DJs organise their music collections.
On Kerri Chandler's DJ-Kicks mix, the deeply influential house producer and DJ plays musical tour guide, guiding listeners around the boroughs of New York. From his first gig opening for his dad in a New Jersey club aged 13 to sets at New York institutions like Paradise Garage and Shelter, Chandler's life experience and artistic development are strongly linked to the area. Resident Advisor's Max Pearl met the man himself on a rainy day in Manhattan to revisit the sites that shaped him as an artist.
Whether you're into vinyl or digital files, staying on top of your music collection can be a daunting task. As a radio host, label owner and DJ, Moxie knows that keeping track of what goes where quickly becomes overwhelming. So for our first segment, she asks how four contrasting DJs organise their collections. Bicep, Avalon Emerson, Erol Alkan and B.Traits each offer their own strategies, from intelligent playlists to Dropbox backups and more.
