Splice has teamed up with Movement Electronic Music Festival (OFFICIAL) to share the sample libraries of the Detroit festival’s artists.
The sample pack, Sounds Of Detroit, is based on field recordings made by Detroit artists SHIGETO and Waajeed at various locations around the city. Musicians from Movement’s 2018 lineup were then invited to High Bias recording studios to edit and transform those recordings into samples and loops.
Sounds Of Detroit includes contributions from Andrés, Mark Flash, Ectomorph, Blake Baxter, Shady P, Delano Smith, Black Noi$e, Kweku Saunderson, Antenes, Marco Shuttle, MGUN, Chuck Daniels, Milan Ariel, Gene Farris, The Saunderson Brothers, Marshall Applewhite, Mija, Jon Dixon and Chris Koltay.

Proceeds will go to two local non-profits, The Seraphine Collective and Spin, Inc.,
which aim to promote an inclusive Detroit music scene.
Splice has also shared a short documentary of the same name, which details the process behind the sample pack and the stories of the artists involved.

Narigamba Mwinsuubo is one of the most intelligent, energetic, and tenacious Africans I know. For a couple of years now, he has been building the foundation for Bitland, a land administration program to register property and record GPS coordinates and other information on the blockchain with smart contract technology. One of the major problems they have in Ghana, as well as the rest of Africa, is tenuous property titles and resulting weakened property rights. Blockchain technology has the potential to change that.
The link below is a linkedin page that describes more about it, and you can visit the Bitland facebook page also.
Bitland has received an award from Netexplo as one of the top ten technology solutions and people are starting to notice. It is a big idea, but Narigamba has done everything so far with very little funding. At this point, it is limiting the potential to move forward.
If you can, please consider donating.

Sheeeeesh! Why not just rent out the Lincoln Bedroom to Putin? The welcome mat is obviously out for Russians at the White House – and the State Department.
WASHINGTON — As Russia’s virtual war against the United States continues unabated with the midterm elections approaching, the State Department has yet to spend any of the $120 million it has been allocated since late 2016 to counter foreign efforts to meddle in elections or sow distrust in democracy.
As a result, not one of the 23 analysts working in the department’s Global Engagement Center — which has been tasked with countering Moscow’s disinformation campaign — speaks Russian, and a department hiring freeze has hindered efforts to recruit the computer experts needed to track the Russian efforts.
The delay is just one symptom of the largely passive response to the Russian interference by Trump, who has made little if any public effort to rally the nation to confront Moscow and defend democratic institutions.
If you want to explore more destinations in Asia, a Myanmar tour package
will be an ideal choice for you.
Here is the full transcript of the conversation I recently had with the great Indian writer Arundhati Roy. We discuss war, Trump, Kashmir, Narendra Modi, the lesser known and disturbing history of Gandhi and Arundhati’s new novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness. In such a dark time, Arundhati Roy is a bright, shining light.
This Wednesday, April 18, on Intercepted, we are premiering a new experiment: An old school radio drama written by Wallace Shawn and starring Matthew Broderick, Annapurna Sriram, Larry Pine and other great actors. It deals with targeted killing, #METOO, and living in authoritarian times, even in a democracy. Please spread the word! It will be free for all to listen to and will be in 3 acts on the podcast feed and also at TheIntercept.com. That’s Wednesday, April 18! Would love to hear what you all think!
‘The rally was a call to decry anti-Semitism, but it also ran up against a total aversion in France to what’s called communautarisme, which can loosely translate as American-style identity politics, in which members of ethnic or religious groups derive a strong part of their personal identity—and political clout—from their backgrounds and histories. The opposite of universalism. This is also why French intellectuals have been tying themselves in knots over how to deal with anti-Semitism. How do you call it what it is without asking for special treatment? The journalist and humanitarian interventionist Raphael Glucksmann wrote on Facebook that he was attending the march not because he was heeding the call of the crif, but “because millions of people, Jews and non-Jews, people who belong to one community or to none, feel the same anguish I do and feel in some way that they also lost their grandmother on March 23, 2018.” Rabbi Delphine Horvilleur, from a liberal synagogue in Paris, tweeted: “I dream of a France that knows that someone killed a grandmother, and not just ‘mine.’ A nation that rises up to confront the horror and doesn’t send its condolences to a ‘community.’ #MyFranceHadaGrandmother.”
‘As the marchers turned down Knoll’s street, I struck up a conversation with Hervé Timsit, a composer. “I came because I think we need to act and to confront the normalization of anti-Semitism,” he told me. He was Jewish, an atheist, and had come on his own. “I would have come if a black woman had been killed, or if black people had been killed in the same pattern, or Arabs, but that’s not the case,” he said. He also came because he was distressed by larger developments in Europe. The soft autocracy in Hungary. Poland’s new law criminalizing mention of Polish complicity in the Holocaust. “When you step back and look at what’s happening it’s scary,” he said.’
