Сёння ў гасцях «Рэдактарскага падкаста» электронны лайв-музыка і адзін з арганізатараў кракаўскага музычнага пікніка Letucień Стас Pocketrave.
У гэтым выпуску мы абмяркуем яго лайв-сэтап, творчую матывацыю, а таксама кракаўскую музычную сцэну і тое, як Letucień з кожным годам становіцца ўсё больш значнай музычнай падзеяй горада. І, канешне, паслухаем музыку, якую прынёс госць, гэтым разам – яго ўласнага аўтарства.

У хлопцаў нядаўна выйшаў новы, ужо другі альбом Vostraŭ skarhaŭ (https://radioplato.by/news/fresh/syndrom-samazvanca-vostrau-skarhau-lp) – восем музычных праменадаў па арт-року, псіхадэліі і краут-року з надзённымі гісторыямі і вобразамі, якія трапляюць у самае сэрца сучаснага беларуса. Пра альбом, музычны шлях і натхненні гурта слухайце ў гэтым эпізодзе!
У сённяшнім эфіры Radio Plato слухаем новы выпуск «Рэдактарскага падкаста», госцям якога стаў наш добры сябра, віленскі дыджэй і адзін з заснавальнікаў лэйбла Dubartis Арцём Салдатаў.
Сёлета на лэйбле выйшла вінілавая кампіляцыя па дабу і эксперыментальнаму хіп-хопу Dubartis Compilation (https://radioplato.by/news/release/dubartis-compilation) з лепшых рэлізаў лэйбла за апошнія дзесяць гадоў – і гэта, на наш погляд, адна з самых цікавых плытак за 2022 год.
У эфіры мы паслухаем некалькі трэкаў адтуль, а таксама пагутарым пра літоўскую даб-сцэну, Святыя Граалі ў савецкім груве і пра тое, ці здараюцца цуды ў цяпершані час.
У госці «Рэдактарскага падкаста» завітаў наш добры сябра, сузаснавальнік бара Karma Саша Качан. Разам з камандай яны нядаўна зладзілі прэопэнінг гданьскай Кармы, дзе, уласна кажучы, мы і правялі нашую гутарку. Пагутарылі пра асаблівасці прыморскай версіі бара, пра тое, як увасці ў бар ці можна з яго выйсці, а таксама паслухалі яго плэйліст да чытання і што пад яго Саша чытае (не рэп 😏).
У мінулую пятніцу на лэйбле Radio Plato выйшаў Utulna – новы альбом маляўнічых джазі-бітоў ад Patapenka.
З гэтай нагоды мы запрасілі Вову ў эфір «Рэдактарскага падкаста», дзе правялі разам з ім экскурсію па альбоме і даведаліся, як нараджаліся трэкі, як малпа, якая грае на піяніна, паўдзельнічала ў стварэнні альбома і якія дзверы трэба адчыніць, каб трапіць у тэрапеўтычны свет Утульнасці.

Вяртаем у эфір «Рэдактарскія падкасты». Для пачатку ў фармаце стэнд-элоўн, а там паглядзім. Як заўжды, гэта добрая музыка ад аўтараў шоў Stereobeaver і KorneJ і лёгкая балбатня аб усім агулам, напрыклад, у гэтым выпуску пра рэвіталізацыю Лукіскай турмы ў Вільні, камп’ютарную любоў і жыццё каля мора.
У новым эпізодзе «Рэдактарскага падкаста» да нас завітаў наш добры сябра, стваральнік і прадзюсар відэапрац, а таксама з нядаўніх часоў актыўны дыджэй Alex Skidan. Гутарым з Лёшам пра ягоны творчы шлях самурая, апошнія працы для Dlina Volny, Rap & Vogue і іншых, а таксама пра тое, калі наступае старасць (і ці наступае ўвогуле). Плюс слухаем купку трэкаў з Лёшынай падборцы, у тым ліку яго першы вініл з аўтографам ад Pompeya. Пагналі!
Інтэрв'ю было запісана перад вайной.
Сёння ў «Рэдактарскім падкасце» – маладая, але яскравая зорка Iva Sativa. Яна запісвае музыку, якую можна акрэсліць як этна-хоп: на масіўныя 808-я біты яна чытае і распявае ў народнай стылістыцы песні пра чакры, даўгія косы, скокі ў традыцыйнай кашулі са скейтам і іншы постмадэрн. Мы пагутарым пра формулу поспеху, калабу з РРЖ і перспектывы музычнага экспарту Беларусі, а таксама паслухаем плэйліст, які падрыхтавала спявачка.
У сённяшні «Рэдактарскі падкаст» завітаў наш дарагі сябра, ілюстратар, бармэн, арт-дырэктар «Кармы» і проста добры чалавек Харытон. Мы пагутарылі пра тое, чым дапамагае ўспрымаць жыццё, як шматсерыйны серыял, як па-ўкраінску будзе «русалка» і чаму Гомель – гэта Маямі. Слухаем нашую размову, а таксама выдатны плэйліст ад Харытона.
