****THIS IS NOT A SOUNDCLOUD GENERAL****
Only post fucking cool music here.
>dies falling off stairs
Aphex Twin is objectively one of the worst and overrated musicians ever. He just releases mediocre/average tracks and everyone just eat that shit, like...
>hurr he can't fuck up! he's aphex twin! he's mozart reincarnated!
Syro and the recent ep were just an abomination, unlistenable garbage. Andy Stott and Vril are the future of electronic music. Let's face it, RDJ is a washed up has-been.
Prove me wrong.
Pro tip: you can't and you'll never.
Now I am not one of those guys who's like "sampling takes no talent" or w/e. But to what extent should they be appreciated in terms of the talent of the artist? My big two examples for this are Donuts by J Dilla and Discovery by Daft Punk. Both albums are very much loved, but listen to the tracks both artists have sampled for the albums. They didn't do much different from those artists. Like can we truly say Daft Punk makes some groovy ass cool music when really the groovy ass cool part of their tracks are really just parts that were already made like that...

I think that Dilla being one of the first to truly tap into sampling properly is bound to have some rough patches. some songs on donuts get skipped immediately but it doesn't make me respect it any less. more people getting into soul/funk/jazz has gotta be a good thing. it's just a matter of incorporating samples fluently without just coasting on the original song
death grips sampling techniques are way ahead of their time (commence jerk), go onto the site whosampled and look up some of the origins...

No I think what Death Grips do is cool that way. Hell even the way Kanye has sampled stuff is really cool. Of course the king of these being DJ Shadow. But idk if the appreciation should go to Dilla or Daft Punk just because they are making big some lesser known soul/funk which actually the real good stuff that needs to be appreciated.
Unfortunately that may be true.
Hey /mu/, what do you use primarily to download music? I've been using pic related ever since thepiratebay got shut down. Are there any other sites worth using?
>inb4 i buy my music
first off, please buy your music and support the artist
second, enjoy getting busted by your ISP for using a shitty tracker
fourth, learn how to use the archive / sharethreads, super useful and usually have what you're looking for
sorry if i come off as condescending but all of this is literally explained right there in the sticky
who /postrock/ here?
how do you discover 'obscure' music? Ykno, stuff with like <300 listeners on last.fm or whatever
blogs usually are the best bet, even tho theyve mostly fallen off since the Great Mediafire Genocide u can still find old ones and just find downloads to the albums elsewhere
In other news, Russia is joining forces with North Korea.
What flowcharts would you like to see? I just might do it if I know the source well enough.
Personally I'd love a shoegaze one in the same fashion as the ones for post-punk and post-rock.
Will do, that was my first one. I'm feeling like doing some more.
Some day I might expand the Swans one with all of Angels of Light, World of Skin, etc. But I'm not as familiar with that stuff as with Swans yet.

>you will never find that one song
I just skimmed through Oasis' entire discography on Spotify looking for that one Oasis song I heard on the radio as an 8 year old and I CAN'T FUCKING FIND IT. Now I'm starting to question whether it was actually an Oasis song or not.
So I guess the theory that various Fashion Week showcases will host Death Grips music is true after all?
For all your traditional music needs, post in this thread.
What have you been listening to lately?
What do you want to explore?
What's your favourite traditional folk music?
Request, share and discuss here.
Daily /trad/ general.
I just started uploading the Nonesuch Explorer series. Unfortunately, XLD doesn't work like I wanted it to, so I haven't compressed them to MP3s. Instead, they're the exact FLAC files from what.cd, so anyone who wants to seed a bit of free stuff could potentially grab these files and just link the torrents.
I've been trying to explore Tamil folk music recently. Unfortunately it's pretty difficult to find high-quality files, even though folk music is pretty popular in Tamilnadu and tons of Tamil pop music incorporates folk elements. I have had some luck finding actual pure folk on film soundtracks (the primary source of music in India) though again it's not always easy to find them in high quality.
Also I keep winding up in weird detours into Punjabi folkhop, which I don't even like that much. I did find some pretty cool pure folk Punjabi songs today though.
Is there much difference between Tamil music and Carnatic music?
In case you're interested, I have pastbinned every entry in Oxford Music for India, you can find it here:
Last SoundCloud thread is filled up. Let's make another one.
