Watch This: Resident Advisor’s Real Scenes New York
Resident Advisor, in conjunction with Red Bull Music Academy, has returned with the latest volume of their Real Scenes series, and this time New York City is the focus. New York means a lot of things to a lot of different people, but the overarching theme RA and RMBA land on for this mini-documentary is the hard-ass mentality and hypercreativity it takes to survive as an artist in the city. Not that this theme should ever be confined to America’s largest city, but it’s more about the way in which residents view themselves and their own plight in relation to the changing tides and historic themes of electronic music in New York. Interviewees include FaltyDL, Anthony Parasole, L.I.E.S’s Ron Morelli, and the planners of Mister Saturday Night, Blkmarket Membership, Output, and Mister Saturday Night.
