LWE Podcast 12: Andrey Radovski

Listening to and judging over 35 mix submissions was something of a life-consuming task, but one which exposed us to a number of incredibly enticing sets that left us quite proud of our readers. A hearty thanks to each of you who put your time, effort and taste into these mixes. This is our last post of 2008, so happy New Year in advance. We’ll be back to a regular posting schedule on January 5th, 2009.

And now, the time has come for us to announce the winner of our first annual podcast mix competition… after the jump.

Congratulations, Andrey Radovski, your excellent mix received the highest score as rated by our panel of seven judges and you are our 12th podcast curator. In second place, Hendrick Mitchell, aka Thelonious Funk; third place goes to DJ L’embrouille. Each will receive a prize pack courtesy of NRK Sound Division. So let’s move on to LWE Podcast 12:

We’re proud to introduce the 12th LWE podcast — the last one of 2008 and winner of our competition. This mix comes to us from Andrey Radovski — a Minsk, Belarus native and current Brooklyn, NYC resident. Radovski is a resident DJ of the Funimal House monthly at Monkey Town in Williamsburg. His set, entitled “Crack Is Destiny,” impressed us with its deft pacing and technique, natural transitions and arrangements, and deep and relevant selections. Slinking across Detroit house, Spanish grooves, tribal rhythms and closing with the mind-elevating sounds of Kerri Chandler, Radovski’s mix exemplifies what we were looking for in this competition. Better still, it keeps us coming back for more even after we’d overdosed on mixes. Kudos to Andrey; check him out live if you have the chance.

My heartiest congratulations. Well done!
I will review when fully listened, but I’ll tell you right now that I’m happy to see that Kerri Chandler track at the end. It’s an excellent gem.

Marc  on December 30, 2008 at 7:51 AM

Congrats! Really excellent….I’ll have to make it out to Monkey Town.

Thelonious Funk  on December 30, 2008 at 8:41 AM

Congrats to Andrey! Well done mates! I would love to have you guys on my radio show if you’d like…

tibal  on December 30, 2008 at 9:39 AM

colin s  on December 30, 2008 at 10:28 AM

Congrats Andrey! Nice mix.

harpomarx42  on December 30, 2008 at 5:22 PM

I’ve heard this mix in its full, and I can safely say this was a winner, even without listening to the others.

Andrey R  on December 30, 2008 at 8:55 PM

Happy New Year everyone! 😀

james kartsaklis  on December 31, 2008 at 9:40 AM

there were many excellent mixes and i do not envy steve for all the work he put into this competition. there were a few mixes in particular that i was pulling for and it so happens that andrey’s (the mixes were scored anonymously) was one of those that received top marks not only from myself but many others, as well.

the overall depth and execution of these mixes is a sure sign that the “niche” of forward-thinking dance music we all come to hear on littlewhiteearbuds is definitely going strong.

hope everyone has a happy, peaceful, and joyous new year.

adamm  on December 31, 2008 at 10:15 AM

only 20mins in but this is great stuff, congrats

deejaycountzero  on January 1, 2009 at 1:33 PM

nice one. sounds a lot like satoshi tomiie. only real problem is the slight overuse of the behringer mixer’s reverb effect. congrats to andrey!

littlewhiteearbuds  on January 1, 2009 at 3:51 PM

Except there’s no progressive house at all being played in this mix.

Chris  on January 1, 2009 at 5:16 PM

Chill out frank… If the reverb made the mix better, so be it. The mix is a deserved winner.

Will Lynch  on January 2, 2009 at 7:26 AM

Yeah, maybe it’s my post-punk past but I love reverb.

And Andre– as one of the judges, I was crazy about this mix before i knew who’s it was, told my girflriend how sick it was and everything… exactly my style of house. Definitely hope to make it out to one of your nights. Keep kicking ass!

Tom  on January 2, 2009 at 8:37 AM

Amazing mix. Especially as it’s introduced me to the wonderful world of Masomenos

krc  on January 2, 2009 at 1:15 PM

Congrats Andrey, this is a tight, tight mix!

deejaycountzero  on January 2, 2009 at 2:55 PM

Regarding the genre hair splitting, I suppose if one wanted to pick nits the style might be more accurately described as tech house than progressive house. I can’t help it if I heard a Satoshi Tomiie vibe though. Besides, genre labels are not at all as black-and-white as beatport would like us to think! 😉

As far as the reverb goes, I’m personally of the opinion that it’s distracting if a DJ-added effect is noticeable even to someone completely unfamiliar with the track. Despite that I wish Andrey the best and acknowledge the high quality of the mix. Kudos!

Andrey R  on January 3, 2009 at 8:56 AM

Yes I did get a bit carried away with the reverb – Can’t help myself:)
Hm I have to ask Satoshi Tomii if it’s ok;)

jake  on January 5, 2009 at 10:14 AM

this is fantastic – thanks!

Ray Weitzenberg  on January 6, 2009 at 4:01 PM

Nice work, Andrey! Congrats on the win.

On a separate nit picking note, I’m new here, and finding the feed for the actual podcast was difficult. An obvious link somewhere and an included iTunes link might make life easier.

sarah joy  on January 7, 2009 at 7:11 AM

keep coming back to this. so good.

Miroslav  on January 12, 2009 at 6:38 PM

wow…that mix IS pretty good… and I’m a pretty tough critic :->

Andrey  on March 4, 2010 at 1:54 PM

And now, get a load of this sick puppy! 😀

frankie frank  on August 17, 2011 at 4:16 AM

iggy  on February 26, 2013 at 9:13 AM
