rise and shine lads
i agree drum and bass has no visual asthetic at all.
most of it is just dancefloor crap anyway even stuff exit records puts out would only make sense in a live setting where snapbacks are present, who in there right mind wants to listen to such garbage or be associated with it.
This is what the lo-fi thing has going for it, they will never be on the same level as us unless they quickly change things.
You can easily apply the same thing to people that listen to grime lol that music is just inexcusable crap for degenerate chav's.
It makes gabba look good.
>'anon what do you mean 'stop dat' isn't the best grime tune of all time?
Daily reminder of best Grime riddim.
(MOND001)  DJ Mondie - Straight
Haven't decided what the vocal Grime track is.
When you ask yourself a series of questions
Am I happy with who I am?
Am I happy with the people around?
Am I happy with what I am doing?
Am I happy with the way my life is going?
Pied Piper is also GOAT tier but I prefer Straight, and I prefer the Straight vocals over Pied Piper vocals.
If Esco ever MC'd over Straight then that would probably my favourite Grime track of all time. Best MC easily.
do you use a /bleep/ related wallpaper, /bleep/?
hip hop and downtempo are not really talked about here, since these tunes are not part of the same dance music 'scene'
for example, stuff like this is hip hop, but made by a dnb producer so it's considered part of these threads
i make musics with bleeps and bloops.
if I want 2 produce bleeps while staying relevant and trendy, what should I produce? Is "outsider house" the trendy stuff to listen to nowadays? os is it post-dubstep?
>That feel when Luke Vibert will never release another album of new material as Plug
>asking 'how to stay relevant and trendy' an the music section of an anime imageboard associated with child porn
no one will ever think you're cool.
mate what if you made a footwork beat, slowed it to 118 and slapped a 4x4 distorted kick on, then played it out your laptop speakers and recorded it on your sony ericson w595
thatd be trendy
what happened to neptune? guy made some serious headfucks
made a thread earlier but it hasn't been catching on so i'll ask here
Which is the most effective virtual software you can make music with without a keyboard?
Ableton seems to be out of the question.
Reason is okay.
Cubase is mainly for recording and mixing which can be good.
Logic seems alright since it doesn't have much MIDI functionality.
Need some more input
you guys still listening to epoty?
why shes pretty qt
although darren is definitely the better looking of the two
>hurr durr i only listen 2 patrishun bleeps
not all of it is route94 garbage, there are a lot of decent tracks part of that scene, and its house and bass or jackin house not deep house. the ones who say they listen to deep house are plebs
What does /mu/ think of this album?
I got his discography a few years ago and this is the only album that I actually liked, maybe Mesmerizing the Ultra a little bit too. I'm curious what y'all think.
Lo if house has been out since early 2013. /trendy/ is now instrumental grime, grimey club constructions (Her Records, Night Slugs CC series) and bubblegum bass (PC Music). Get with the times /mu/.
Anyway, who's pumped for new dark0?
That word is like nails on a chalkboard. Anyway check out somethinksounds (they were the kings of this sound) and 09/10 era Hotflush. That post-dubstep sound was way more EP than album driven, but like other anon said Sepalcure self-titled is great, as well as Machinedrum's Room(s).
Yea but has never been as ubiquitous as it is now. Her Records came out of nowhere to be one of the most important labels of 2014 and arguably Classical Curves was year 0 of that sound
Anyway instrumental grime is even fucking older (Pulse X came out in 2002 ffs) and no one who knows their shot would argue that instrumental grime isn't the most /trendy/ genre at the moment
grime has always been trendy though, in fact it's sound hinges on being a fresh underground urban sound.
it's always going to be "trendy" so it's a moot point to even call it out as such really.
what do you mean by trendy? just because it has a fairly limited following, more 'underground' and you feel cool for listening to it, what a fucking stupid word to describe music
Yeah no, you have no understanding of the current grime scene. The new wave started in 2013, where a bunch of new artists cropped up (Boxed crew). These guys are substantially different than the old grime guys who are now either making chart grabbing hits or basically making uk trap. You could even argue that road rap has replaced grime as the true urban music given that the old grime generation have seen too much success while the new grime cats are all college educated white kids
minimalism does not exclude clever songcrafting
But all the crap I hear foregoes the latter to focus on the former
Here's what I like, call me a pleb if you want
sorry but there are a select group of fags who post in these generals. you are not cutting edge or have a muh secret club for listening to new grime which a lot sounds like remakes of old releases with more clean production, and people have been doing it for a while now - once people got bored of stale hip hop style instrumentals. it's like we're stuck in 2011 or something in these fucking generals.
Yeah I'm aware.
It's just that it all sounds like techno I've already heard before, I get that they're repetitive DJ Tools but a lot of them just sound like dime-a-dozen reiterations of previous DJ Tools.
ffs u aren't very bright, are you
"Dj tools" are simple, stripped down songs used in Dj sets to fill in between transitions, or to make a transition between 2 songs smoother, or to simply play along another song in the set
They are meant to be simple and not that interesting. That's why Hardwax labels these as DJ TOOLS
yo i hear this argument a lot. could you give me examples of these tunes that sound like remakes? apart from the obvious remakes 'jt - twin warriors', 'samename - sakura', etc. not calling you out or whatever, i agree with your sentiment too about the guys in this thread, it's just i don't really hear it. i've been listening to grime for years and i'm genuinely excited about all this stuff and think it's pretty refreshing and original.
I don't think anyone is claiming that grime stopped being made or anything like that. The whole point is that it's at it's highest popularity (and some would argue highest creativity) in years. There's a reason every /bleep/ thread devolves into /grime/ these days. That's never happened before in the history of this board, so that should tell you something at the very least
I mean would you not say it's "trendy"? Boxed has become massive and you have DJs of all kinds of genres inserting grime tunes in their mixes and sets. It's like 2007-era dubstep all over again. Anyway, just use the word "popular" if trendy is so inflammatory for some of you guys. Although "trendy" just means popular amongst a certain demographic
>It's like 2007-era dubstep all over again.
what do you mean by this?
i wouldn't call it popular either, but that might just be where i'm from, i've only seen the odd butterz night or something. what's the most played style of music at fwd these days? you can usually tell what's currently big by who's playing at fwd.
Why do guys care what's trendy so much? It's such a hipster thing to do... and yes that includes actively avoiding what you feel to be too trendy.
Stop being hipsters and just enjoy what bangs in the clubs and gets you moving. Have a good time boys and stop posing - no one cares if you think lo-fi house is 4 2013 Use Only. Not even your mums will care.
Also when a girl is eyeing you up on the dance floor and comes over for a dance and you stop dancing and say "Mount Kimbie?? what is it 2009?! Topkek" she's gonna bail pretty fast. Just so u know fams
Route 94 is utter shit. He was a brostep producer who realized that shit was dying so he jumped on the uk house bandwagon to try to cash out by making generic tanktop house. He'll be making grime next year as soon as Uk house starts losing popularity.
well i like lad house so if anyone else does i will be over here not shuffling because skream said it wasnt cool
i dont really care if yob lads like it i suppose it is a shame that live shows will be full of bellends but whatever, i feel as though with music designed to make people dance, it doesn't matter the artists history, it should be more simple as do you like the trax or not. call me a pleb
Eliphino - More than Me
Bwana - Baby Let Me Finish
Artifact - The way it do
If you're the guy who was asking for post-dubstep I also meant to tell you to check out the Well Rounded Records back catalog as well. They were probably even bigger than somethinksounds at that sound, just somehow slipped my mind
I am 95% sure I know this girl in real life. Which is weird, because I live in a small state and two (2!) people I know in real life are used as memes/joke posts in /fit/ facial aesthetic threads. There's some guy going around posting people.
Whatever man - I just dropped by for a chat but I guess you're all too cool and angry for that, which is fair enough.
Those of you that venture outside will keep paying to see me play though. Look forward to seeing some of you "trainspotting" over the next few months. I'll keep an eye out, hah. Peace
I feel like its about perspective too, like if the first track on that ep came out under some obscure 50 year old belgian techno monikers monikers moniker, the people in these threads would hail it as the second coming, but due to the jagerbomb connotations Route 94 has, it puts people off
just chill boys
it feels like people are running out of ideas in the uk
after dubstep, we've gone from people trying to bring back garage, people trying to make future garage a thing, weird non danceable stuff like night slugs, electro releases and bait techy sounding house releases from swamp 81, techno mixed with grime, deep house with speed garage basslines and samples
and everything gets shunned under uk bass or '130' and other labels. it's kind of interesting but it seems like a mess at the same time.
could you post examples? a lot of mixes i've listened to, the tracks sound cool, but just sounds like some post dubstep stuff with the weird beat patterns with a few grimey synths and recognisable old grime samples.
What is bleep? Please explain this to me. I have bought the Akira Soundtrack and Shabazz Palaces Lese Majesty from Bleep, but I have no idea if it's the same thing as this thread. And if it is, why are there threads on Bleep? What do they do? What makes them different from Amazon? Do they make bootlegs? I really have no idea.
Anyone into the stuff out on the Bandulu label?
Weird, a lot of this sounds like the music i was trying to make 3 years ago. was trying to go for a rough, gritty vibe at a lower tempo with lots of pumping bass hits, warpy detuned square waves, and fast claps but i didn't carry it on
It's way better than the movie imo. Berserk-tier.
Yeah, there were a load of political bits with the terrorists not mentioned, and after the end (the bit where Kaneda and co ride off into the sunset) there's this whole part where they're stuck between a bunch of different factions like the akira cultists and the police in the city. It would have to be like 6 hours long to get everything, though.
hey i've never done a mix before can i get some crit/thoughts on this it's p much all jungle with a couple jcore and a couple techstep tracks?
That's the point bruv. Its a bunch of footwork artists ironically remixing cheese trance "classics" and making them listenable
And no, I don't know anything similar, I don't listen to trance. I would be shocked if anyone here did. Trance and progressive house are considered the plebest forms of dance music by a mile
dunno man. if u judge it on the crowd at grime nights in london 'forward' by lethal b is probably the best of all time. nothing sends people crazier. it's like an instant 3 reloads when that shit comes on. stop that is good tho
use a key, unlock door, you are into house.
seriously though just use this chart
Machinedrum - Room(s)
Jam City - Classical Curves
Actress - RIP
Logos - Cold Mission
Ben Frost - Aurora
Pinch - Underwater Dancehall
Scuba - Triangulation
James Holden - Inheritors
John Talabot - Fin
Voices from the Lake - Voices from the Lake
Sepalcure - Sepalcure
Kuedo - Severant
Zomby - Dedication
there's probably numerous things wrong with this chart but i don't know enough about house to point them out
solely focusing on artist-albums and not putting a few compilations is probably one of them...
Most people in bleep are british. Feels odd being murrican in here sometimes. Not much people in murrica with my taste sadly. At least here in Miami. Most local DJs here play boring tech house and "deep house".
i used to listen to so much of this stuff i got half a tb of it on my computer yet i have no clue cause most of it seems like its garbage and has the same pulsing grimey sound over and over.I don't know why they hardly ever add vocals or atleast various sound bytes?
dude i remember when i was a kid i had a couple of compilations of this. ive been trying to to remember this one artist that had a couple of songs that sampled like polka music. it was awesome and i need it
name some of the top frenchcore producers please
What does /bleep/ think of EPROM?
Anyone ever see him live?
theres a few decent acts playing at boomtown this year. boddika, chimpo, dj champion, royal-t, kahn and neek, my nu leng, ray fucking keith. it's pretty /bleep/ this year compared to last time i went.
P cool guy. I never listened that much to his albums, but his older stuff was pretty powerful. The albums aren't bad, but they didn't do much for me. They do have some serious bangers on them, though.
I "met" him on /gd/ last year. I have no idea how I summoned him so quickly. The posts I initially replied to were way back in the thread, and /gd/ was very slow at that time. I've tried showing the screenshot to some friends, but none of them know who he is. )=
Oh, fuck off.
>Trance and progressive house are considered the plebest forms of dance music by a mile
god you are such a clueless fuck. Progressive house doesn't sound anything like it used to. i bet you're the one who says "Instrumental grime" and got into dance music less than 2 years ago.
