RinseFM, MET Gala, Grimes on AI Music
Slimzee left Rinse FM after almost 30 years. In this episode we are meeting DJ Juba to take a closer look at the station that played a massive role in shaping entire genres like grime or dubstep and to talk about the impact Rinse FM has had on herself and music culture as a whole. Plus: MET Gala-looks dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld and his cat, people buying vinyl without listening to it, Grime’s progressive approach to deal with AI in music, workers at YouTube Music unionising and this week’s recommendation comes from Nicola Mazzetti who owns Serendeepity, the oldest and most influential record shop in Milan.
