My last job as a civilian was working on educational research projects for an exam board, and the very last thing I did there was a trial of innovative maths teaching methods in schools.
Which isn't something you'd expect to hear about on this podcast, but we get pretty close to it in my conversation with former Oye Records counterman Tallmen785 as his current area of work combines the teaching of music and maths to kids in an interesting way.
You may be familiar with Tallmen techno jams, but Brian Mitchell originally trained to a high level in Jazz guitar. His move from the US to Berlin took him to SUB:STANCE parties and a complete change of his musical outlook.
We discuss all of the above, as well as the joy of record store work, and revisiting the topic of theory in electronic music.
This week is a two-part episode, and after the conversation we dive into a Singles Club-esque format featuring the top 10 streamed Taylor Swift tracks, as requested by Janetpak in the Discord.
