The tables are turned on electronic music's most well-known scribe.
Philip Sherburne is one of the foremost electronic music writers in the world. Through his work at The Wire, Pitchfork and, yes, Resident Advisor, he's done as much as anyone to champion (and critique) what is going on in house, techno and beyond since he first put pen to paper in the late '90s. In the process, he's written countless reviews and profiles, coined the term "microhouse" and conducted interviews with the likes of Moritz Von Oswald and Ricardo Villalobos. This in-depth conversation with Sherburne takes in his early days as a fan of hardcore in Portland, Oregon; the record shop in Rhode Island that turned him fully onto electronic music and why he recently decided to go to Las Vegas' Electric Daisy Carnival.
