  • This volume of the Critics Roundtable, Resident Advisor's monthly podcast that showcases staff selections, looks back at the summer's important moments and releases in electronic music. Over the course of 40 minutes, podcasts chief Martha Pazienti-Caidan, events writer Katie Thomas and content intern Fahad Akinsanya each recap a special news story, record and live performance from the past two months. Offering insights, opinions and most importantly, discussion, the trio praise the reopening of iconic London venue The Cross and analyse The Jaguar Foundation's latest report on gender diversity in UK dance music. Also on the agenda is the public backlash against RA's critical review of Beyonce's new album. In terms of new releases, the new EP by Eliza Rose and Interplanetary Criminal gets a mention, as does "Fast Lingo" by Sierra and CalvoMusic. Finally, the trio highlight their favourite festival gigs, which include Vanyfox and Tame Impala at Primavera Sound. Listen to the episode for all the details.
