Airhead makes trap
James Blake releases something soon
Lowtec - Workshop 20 is out
I guess that's it.
Weekly reminder to lock in to Uncle Dugs on Rinse.fm.
He's got a show Monday night on BBC 1Xtra where he's going to play his favourite RAM Records tunes. This will definitely feature: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5meT63flnM
Dude, read the archive.
But anyway, here you go: https://soundcloud.com/thump/sets/airhead-believe-ep
I like the bleeps.
http://www.discogs.com/Sascha-Dive-Luke-Hess-Into-The-Abyss/release/5876287 is up on funkysouls
You guys have any opinions on this? Might be my AOTY.
Sorry dude, I don't browse bandcamp, but here are my latest findings in terms of deep house, which for the majority of them, should not be hard to find for "free":
Samuel André Madsen - Love Like This
Militants Of Funk - Drifting
Mark Nicholas - Luv Me
Domenico Rosa - Love Will Lead Us On
Auji - Conclusion Came To You Part 2
Supertape - Nothing Else
And yeah, 95% of them come for the same Youtube channel, but seriously, this guy has some pretty impressive lists of deep house, I advise you to check him out if you like what you hear.
fucking shit. hate that kind of house.
but anyway the biggest summer anthem is no way gonna be that
although it's not great, it's at least better than that horrid redlight tune
lol it's ivy lab not ivy labs
and it's not 'him' it's 3 of them
just go man it will be good. although ivy lab are probably gonna play a lot of halftime stuff/hip hop which might not be to your tastes, idk
I don't think a sample collage with nothing to chant along to can really be a summer crossover anthem.
>hate that kind of house.
but you must understand that the majority of people don't hate it, therefore it will be an anthem.
Superior Blawan duo coming through:
Long, and you have to factor in getting from airport to venue. It's not doable unless one is at 9 melbourne time (i.e. already happened) and the other at 5am london time, concordes come back to life or they use military aircraft with in flight refuelling.
This is shaping up to be a contender for Juke/Footwork AOTY.
What's so good about this tune?
It isn't bad, but I don't think it's that great. I'm only bringing this up because I've seen this reposted many times here on /bleep/
I think that if you're going to choose a summer anthem from Jamie xx, it should be 'Girl'
i don't think it's that good either. i think people only post it here because it got a lot of attention. i forgot about girl, that would probably be more suitable
tbh I agree with the
>poxy middle class nob twiddler churns out another ket-on-spoon certified stomper for members of the self-appointed 'UK underground' elite to strut about to like a pack of trainer obsessed peacocks, slurping on red-stripe and braying largely insincere and irrelevant horseshit at one another. big time swag, full on jacking mode, tops off, lets 'av it, jungles are massive... deep house life brooooooo!
it's just such a cliche 'deep, british' track. like it isn't terrible or anything, but jamie himself surely must acknowledge that tunes like this are old hat at this point, and have been for a few years now
He ended his set at Parklife with an extended version of All Under One Roof Raving and it was nuts.
Yeah, I get that if you're in your bedroom with your earphones then this isn't the best track ever. But as a 'summer anthem' this was it. It was perfect for the day, everyone was feeling it.
Has there ever been a better trance song than Dark Train?
this is fairly mediocre. not much of a change then for someone's whose entire career seems to exist due to james blake's reflected. thought i was listening to a moby tune there on that first one until the shite 'drops'
>that LP that was never released
never 'eard it
that said, the hype behind blake from the get go (air and the lack thereof) was absolutely insane.
not to sound too salty or nethin but i'd say that rob getting signed to r&s probably has a bit to do with the fact that james got there first. 1-800 dino is just james and ex-r&s manager/a&r so rob getting a free pass there isn't much of a surprise there.
the guy's okay but he ain't nethin special.
Yeah, apart from a few tracks ripped from mixes not many people will have heard the LP. Shame, it sounded really good.
Ah, I don't remember the Air & Lack Thereof hype tbh (though I was into it at the time - maybe I was just blindly on the hype train).
Yeah it's true that R&S is a bit of a Blake club, with Klaus too.
Airhead is definitely worthy of praise outside of Blake affiliation though. Definite good tunes / producer.
the guy who did tusk? i never kept up with him (nor keepin up with 1-800 for that matter). tusk was aight though. didn't blow my mind or nethin at the time but nice enough.
>Enough Thunder wreckage
haha, yeah. thinking about that barking dog sample on that bon iver colab makes me chuckle even now.
Yeah, he has a couple of post-Tusk releases that are worth checking. DJ sets are good too... darker / moodier vibes and generally quite heavy from what i've seen.
lol, forgot about the dog barking in that track. gonna have to have a listen
i just want another CMYK ep if i'm honest. shit's good
Is Workshop 20 available on Internet yet? I can't find it on Soulseek.
Thanks sir. I wish I could take the pride of digging them, but it's mostly the work of the channel's owner.

Bells is my jam
the admx-71 is great, big fan of the legowelt one.
fav is probably pic related
ron morelli writes such boring music
hilarious tht he told that anon from here that he wrote boring music. would love to hear how boring something is for ron pies to consider it boring
Techno interests me. How do I get into it?
i heard that this guy has loads of them.
IMHO it's faster to find DJs you like and then lookup the set lists. You could roll through a few boiler rooms on yt easily. It won't really be cutting edge stuff, but it's a start at a wide range.
What were those VA? Best Techno Hits 4 Da Club Summer 199x?
First you should start by artists you like: what's their labels? do you release regularly on them?
Check their labelmates, with luck you'll find sounds you like.
Also listen to mixes. A lot. Use 'dem tracklists (if they exist).
But like those guys >>48370953 >>48370965 said, it's just common sense. Check RA, check Discogs...
I looked up the artists that made those tracks, they only made a handful of singles, all of which I checked out. I know you're used to dealing with imbeciles, but I'm just looking for some advice on what to listen to, or how to find what to listen to, I don't want you to spoonfeed me.
These, I can work with. I don't listen to much electronic music, so the lack of albums was a problem.
A Livity Sound comp from 2013 and Clicks_+_Cuts (the first one, if I'm not mistaken there are several comps like that).
I will check the labels.
If you like Livity Sound, maybe you should try Hessle Audio. I know they are really often suggested here (not as much as L.I.E.S. thanks), but lots of their releases are pretty good.
Can't help you with Mille-Plateaux however; I can just say that Tim Hecker releases are bliss, especially his first LP.
I'm downloading a couple of releases from Hessle Audio. I know about Tim Hecker. This will be enough for now, I'll come back and make an ass out of myself again when I'm done with these and I feel up to it.
mixlr and theres another one like plug.dj or something
but unless you organize it for a specific time, it wont work
and even if you organized it for a specific time, it probably wont work as people would put on sandstorm and/or russian hardbass for 5 hours
irc or thread are really the way2go tbh imo ok thank U
yeah, it wasn't mixlr or plug,dj - it was kinda good... wouldn't need to be a specific time as people can come and go and anyone can add / reomve tracks from the play list but if that descends into anarchy there can be limits set (i.e. no tracks longer than 7 mins or something). i was in one with a bunch of mu rockists and it worked pretty well tbh
You should all check out this label I discovered recently called Occult Research. They've only had 3 releases, free digi or on cassette, but they're all top notch, covering house, jungle and acid-techno.
i don't like this style of music, i find it boring, featureless and repetitive (i know that the repetition is the point, but it doesn't make my brain slip into a transcendent euphoria of pattern recognition or whatever it is you strange creatures derive from this music)
but i wish i did. how will i be down, hip and urban when all the music i like stopped being made in the 90's.
please help me i am scared and confused
Riko Dan did a freestyle over Mumdance - Take Time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL7YkGIEB-4. I prefer it to the Novelist freestyle but that's because Riko Dan is GOAT tier Grime MC.
>this style of music
What are you on about?
Topkek. Seriously though I'm looking to expand my folder of producers pulling a costanza face so if you have any suggestions they're always welcome. There are quite a few who just don't seem to have any suitable pics on the internet though.
>gantz posts pic of a post made by me on dsf
>deletes it 10 mins later
do you think he found out it was a copypasta? ;_;
Learning Ableton. So far so good. Have done a few (very shitty) songs. All good. But
HOW DA FUCK DOES HE GET DEM LUSH SOUNDS?
Like, what should I read/watch when it comes to proper mixing? I absolutely love Shed's mixing.
just listen to that bass sweep
Oh I'm sure he uses 'real' gear (and I bet you he uses Ableton more than you might think)
What I'm interested is on the mixing aspect of it. I'm having such a hard time getting my songs to have...."stage". They sound so flat and lifeless. While's Shed's sounds use every fucking square mm of my speakers. Mmmmm
Terre's mixing is God-tier as well
I've heard he does use a lot of old and cheap gear. And often does not use compression
>unfortunately house/techno usually bores me on a night out
What do you like? dem breaks?
>club tickets are expensive as fuck
That sucks, but it was expected
Overall : im very jelly
im into dubstep (roots/dub influenced obvs not brostep)
and garage i guess, basically the uk genres
i mean i like techno just dont like 10 hour sets of a pounding kick drum
at least i wouldnt pay 30-50 euro for it when in england i could see a bunch of my fave 140 artists for like a tenner
its a shame theres not rly a dubstep scene here, i wish there was, hopefully if i ever become big producer i can start one
yeah i think thats the usual price for things like dc10/space where the good artists usually play, altho occasionally while youre out in town you can buy them cheap of ppl on the streets
