Music and Nightlife Capewide: Sept. 20 to 26

So, the same gender-based stereotypes that existed among female rockers in the 1990s and, more recently, women in hip-hop, ring true for females in EDM. James links these stereotypes to society, and she doesn’t expect the dance music industry to change for the better without a radical shift in culture. Music, Not Gender With her masculine-sounding name, Deniz Kurtel , like Jack Novak, is sometimes mistaken for a man. (Deniz is pronounced “Denise,” rather than “Dennis.”) However, she says she has never experienced a negative social stigma as a female in the industry. But that’s not to say she hasn’t heard stories from friends. “Producing electronic music is … not so hard,” Kurtel said over the phone in her rich Turkish accent. “It’s not such a crazy thing that anyone who becomes successful because she’s a woman.” Kurtel added that she knows a lot of male producers hold the belief that women who become successful do so because they’re women. “That’s kind of pathetic,” she concluded. Deniz Kurtel performs in May 2013 at the Boiler Room in London, one of several clubs around the world that host live streams of DJ sets. The Turkish-born DJ was in the midst of pursuing graduate degrees in policy analysis and statistics at universities in New York when she started making art, particularly LED installations. After that, she said, it was pretty clear what she wanted to do. Her artistic experience carried over to music, and a friendship with Brooklyn-based DJs Wolf + Lamb inspired her to start producing in 2007.

You can also select how you want the station to deliver songs, prioritizing “hits,” “variety” or “discovery.” I didn’t get a thorough enough test to prove these three out, but it’s a nice option to have if you’re not a fan of mainstream artists of any genre. (Cars.com) You can also search for artists and create a station based on them in a fashion nearly identical to Pandora. This, too, didn’t deliver the artists I expected/wanted. The overall genre might be right, but if you like one avant-garde band in a genre you’re less likely to also enjoy the most lame traditional … which happened many times during my test across numerous artists. It was so off-putting that I wouldn’t use iTunes Radio myself during solo driving. Two other editors used the app via Bluetooth streaming in new test vehicles with no glitches in terms of skipping tracks via the car’s controls or with the songs being delayed or dropping out. You don’t get unlimited skipping though, nor do you with Pandora’s free service. I counted seven skips on multiple occasions without listening to a full track before it stopped working. You can change the channel to get more skips, similar Pandora. Ads pop up at what seem like random intervals and are between 20 to 30 seconds long. You can get rid of the ads by buying iTunes Match, a $24.99 annual service that puts your iTunes collection in the cloud across devices but does not let you download new music without paying the full fee. If you do hear a song you like, it is very easy to purchase it via iTunes. And if you can’t buy it right away because you’re doing something important like driving a convenient history of songs is accessible.
