Real Scenes: Los Angeles

The latest entry in Resident Advisor’s Real Scenes brings us to the City of Angels and features the likes of Matthewdavid, Dam-Funk, Sun Araw, the Dublab crew, Camella Lobo of Tropic of Cancer or M. Geddes Gengras as our guides through the city’s night life and music scene. What makes this rather interesting is the absence of certain artist you’d expect to appear in this video, diversifying and expanding one’s image of the city – after, what, four or five documentaries on the L.A. beat scene.

Real Scenes: Johannesburg

A couple of days ago, I watched Resident Advisor‘s latest addition to their Real Scenes series, a portrait on the vibrant house scene in Johannesburg. Like the previous installments on Bristol, Detroit, Paris and Berlin, it gives interesting historical background on the music coming from the city, just that Johannesburg is a place I don’t know an awful lot about, making it a special episode.

Real Scenes: Berlin

Following stops in Bristol and Detroit, the latest episode of Resident Advisor‘s Real Scenes brings us to the city of Berlin.

Through words by Dixon, Apparat, Tresor founder Dimitri Hegemann and many others, the story of underground clubs and the rise of techno in Germany is told.

Real Scenes: Detroit

The follow-up to the feature on Bristol has some truly magnificent imagery making it worth watching alone. But of course this is once again about a city as a breeding ground for new music.

The documentary features the likes of Rick Wilhite, DJ Skurge, Kyle Hall, Mike Huckaby or Reference. And of course the talk about things like Motown, The New Dance Show, warehouse parties and Youthville.

Real Scenes: Bristol

First in a series of city portraits, Resident Advisor visited Bristol, talking to the likes of Julio Bashmore, Peverelist, Appleblim, Hyetal, Pinch and more.

Looking forward to see more of these!
