The Soul Strut "Raer" Live Stream

RAJRAJ tenacious local 7,639 Posts
Like most, the self-isolation has the creative juices flowing.  No real world movez = no excuses.

Join me on Instagram live for an hour of record nerdery spinning beat digger jams.  No fancy multi-colored space ship mixers, no time stretching software... just raers and beers.

    Thanks! I'm still experimenting and stretching out to see what works for me. I like the underground vibe Instagram Live presents, but it can be limiting technology wise. I'm hoping to simulcast IG and Facebook Saturday night, Here's the Facebook stream if anyone missed it:

    Running from the copyright cops is a challenge.

    Are you able to see this?

  • Just had a shuffle through and it seems to be working, will be checking this out later! Thank you for reminding me of the existence of Deep Gully. 

    The Friday FB stream went mute at points, I wonder if that was cause certain songs got picked up by some copyright AI? I heard tell of a teacher giving a lecture for an hour and having the whole thing muted because her husband was watching wrestlemania in the background. Keep dodging the pigs!

    Testing Vimeo as a spot to post recordings of the live stream as Youtube is no bueno

    Apparently Mixcloud is starting a live-stream service. Might be worth investigating if you have any more problems Raj.

    Yes.  It's still in beta.  Right now there is quite a few cons, but I'm sure they are working it out.  It would make sense to give it a shot.


  • BTW Raj I think the two-camera setup is great, it's nice to see the covers close up like that. Surprisingly I don't think I've seen that done in a video DJ set before.

    So many heaters in these mixes, glad they haven't vanished post broadcast!

    D59B used to do it when their backlog was on video, but alas moved to soundcloud.

    I had to sack Mixcloud off last week.  Taking away the ability to rewind in the freemium version was the last straw and made me want to throw the mouse through the monitor.  It's just being cheap.

    I updated the rig quite a bit for better performance and optics.  I also came up with a solution to avoid Youtube blocks.  Let's see if it holds up.

    First video I've been able to watch, and aside from mentally posting  a few times during the intro, I LOL'd at the Leo Sayer replacement

    Ha.  Thanks!  Yes I agree.  I need to keep some of the strut humor before I go totally "Hollywood".  Definitely will add some of that back in

    Are you gonna share how you did the YouTube blocks workaround?

    There is a master database which they stopped supporting because the copyright shit changes so quickly and there are millions of songs.  It's a good gauge but not at all accurate.

    The trick is to post a mock video privately and let it sit for a few hours and see what songs you get popped for.  My latest mix didn't have any strikes surprisingly.

    The only scary thing is because shit changes constantly, my mix could be taken down any second.  It happened to my Yacht Rock live test.  It was up for a solid week and then blocked by the band Pages.

    I see a lot of yootoobz that have copy+pasted some kind of DISCLAIMER: FAIR USE FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES paragraph.

    Maybe it only works for ballzing downtempo and niche dance genres nobody cares about....
