drexciya represses edition
not that guy but goa trance/psytrance/whatever is technically club music. just that people in these threads don't talk about it because no one really listens to it or likes it very much
same as stuff like 'ladhouse'. it's club music but everyone hates it so no one discusses it here
it is shit, i'm not denying that lol
i like it actually. it's not really club music but as a novelty pop single it does its job, and the production quality is very good as well
Also I don't really get how goa can't be tasteful? What the fuck does "tasteful" mean?
I get it, but I'd like an explanation on why that's tasteful and this is not.
Perhaps not very /bleep/ related, but I'd like to put forth the MDK 2 soundtrack, a game from the milennia change. It's a blend of techno, trance, big-beat and drum & bass, as well as classical music and jazz. It even blends the former with the latter.
It's hard for me to pick favourites, but the energy of the two drum & bass tracks is just immense. Have a listen. Drum & bass with 4x4 beats and trancey acid-lines. Definately worth a listen.
Also, this one blends classical music with electronic.
yes and yes
honestly while the TPs are all mostly great they've dropped in quality with each release
i get the point that it's supposed to be a "sonic exploration" thing and this sort of criticism defeats the point, but it really is noticeable
at least we can flip it for 300% markup on discogs later on
though i might hold off because it seems pretty likely that they're going to release some sort of boxset to keep them all in along with the artwork inserts
Just finished 40 Years Under the Cosh. I like it quite a lot tbh. Undeniably big tune.
Yeah I was thinking that too. Given it's Modern Love / Boomkat it will get made into a super limited edition green translucent vinyl box set... never to be repressed until they do so on grey marbled vinyl etc.
Then the sleepers / plebs can have it in black 6 months later for the 2015 reissue.
prices for the coloured editions have hit stupid tier for a single 12" now
but yeah haha it's so true. as much as i like and respect both DS, modern love and boomkat their business practices make me cringe
dat feel son
>tfw all the people with good taste stopped posting
>tfw the anti-grime crowd killed bleep
It had a few good moments and ideas that were completely unrealised, and the rest of tracks were heartless, uninteresting, sloppy and outright lazy, and only served to make the album more disjointed and convoluted than it already was.
exactly., you know what im done posting here.
goodbye bro's it was good while it lasted. past 4 months have been terrible.
Gentleman it has been an honour and a privilege bleeping with you these past few months.
last is for faggots.
>listening to digital
bleep is kill
It's just yanks, autists and wannabe producers now.
last.fm is fine, you either have a problem with the community itself, in which case you're cyber-hanging with the wrong people, or you hate statistics
i'm not even in the group but just lurk it time to time. now you're just creating a formless stereotype, and for the record tensnake probably knows more about house than most here
>techno, house, dubstep, garage, jungle, drum & bass, UK bass, etc.
>I'm new here where do I start?
Please keep in mind that /bleep/ is predominantly for dance music, not everything under the "electronic" umbrella. Those looking to expand their tastes will likely not find recs here, check out essentials charts in the sticky for that.
Ishkur's guide to dance music, although it's biased: http://techno.org/electronic-music-guide/
Tensnake's youtube playlists offer a good window into the world of classic dance music: https://www.youtube.com/user/arod2211/playlists
Simon Reynolds - Energy Flash is a recommended reading.
>Where do I get this music?
Discogs also has a marketplace which is very useful for finding rare records no longer on the shelves, but do your research before buying anything for an inflated price.
>I'm lazy and don't want to think for myself
>Wow this is all very overwhelming how do I know what's what?
Record labels are your friend. Discogs probably has the most extensive archive of every release ever, and most people like to discover more music by cataloging labels on discogs and looking at where certain artists have released other stuff. Rateyourmusic is also a decent alternate option.tensive archive of every release ever.

wow i messed up that last part, forgive me
what the fuck is wrong with you
it's fine, serves a purpose and gives /mu/ kids a flavour of what this sort of music is about. some of it is dull but whatever. remove tensnake's name if you're colon-crucified at him
Just noticed that. Simple fix, remove the "I'm new.." part. There is already a "I'm lazy and don't want to think for myself", which is all we really need as it accounts for half the questions in the threads.
tensnakes playlist is the only issue i have with this too.
Way too many irrelevant playlists and it ignores many /bleep/ genres
If we're able to compile a list of good playlists, that may be better
>"Please keep in mind that /bleep/ is predominantly for dance music, not everything under the "electronic" umbrella. Those looking to expand their tastes will likely not find recs here, check out essentials charts in the sticky for that."
imo this is the most important part of the whole thing
fuck that, why spoon feed noobs? part of the joy of shit is discovering things for yourself... if they can't be bothered to do that then they can fuck off. Telling them to browse Hardwax should suffice tbh
why is the panning on this so mental?
Fanu's label has a new release coming out on it: https://soundcloud.com/fanu/sets/fanu-lightless-006-vinyl
It's slower/more ambient/Exit sound type shit. Sounds alright but I was kind of hoping it'd be like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxO8xbw-esc
yeah should say: underground dance music, this does not include stadium and big room genres such as brostep and electrohouse or genres for home listening such as idm and ambient.
i need to get back into jungle and non-shit breakcore
the drums are just so delicious
was it that hard dude
It's leaked on Israbox.
Very very good.
I have now found myself listening to Super Sharp Shooter (Remix) everyday on the way back home from work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sSR-GJnhvw
I probably play it slightly too loud but whatever.
New EP I'm getting soon. Waiting for the digital release which comes out in about a month.
In the process of doing that, m8. Takes a while to get used to a program and all that noise. I've never produced music before.
fuckin hell i thought you stopped posting
your posts are utter shit
you fucking insufferable manlet
>he actually thinks this is good
you dont know shit and you spent three years 'educating' yourself hahahahah
Bleep I need u,
Wat is this sorcery?
What's with the hostility here?
All I did was post some tunes I like...
saw Joy O at berghain a couple of weeks ago and I haven't been able to get this one tune outta my head since, but I can't find it for the life of me. It's a track with a vocal sample that goes like, "I think I'm oooh, aaah". Anyone have any clues as to what it is?
but they're shit tunes and you're an idiot bellend with a weird kind of narcissism whereby you persist in posting the same few pictures of you and your butters mug with polite DJs who won't tell you to fuck off and die
if you were white moodyman would've killed you fam
it seemed to be mainly wp69 who to started them each day - i guess without his persistence / commitment...
also they went shit after a few threads and became analog synth fetish threads with little-to-no actual production chat whatsoever. could do with a reboot though - first few threads were v good
boys, what's your favourite burial release? mine is rival dealer and it feels like a guilty pleasure.
i appreaciate how much of a road man he is in his other releases. they're all serious and i love them... but rival dealer (especially come down to us) is the syrupy music that is otherwise completely missing in my diet and i love it.
i saw there release date for xoul digital somewhere... pretty sure it was meant to be out by now too. weird.
zooite was a let down... only 2 tracks?? p good though but i was hyped.
This was good.
So was Return to Disorder.
Now if only Victor Sol could release something new this year.
on behalf of /bleep/-interested Americans, I apologize that you see it like this and I also am sorry because this is probably mostly true.
Might i suggest that any remaining techno/house heads cut our losses and evacuate premises for good
bleep is kill
Producer here. Don't worry, I'm not trying to be the next Skrillex or a Disclosure/Tchami clone, but I'm sure there's a few of you here that produce.
I've been trying at it for two years now and I've learnt a lot. I can use Ableton with great ease now and I know a lot of the technical stuff, but I still have a lot of problems with the creative and composing side of it.
What can I do to practise and improve in this aspect? Or rather, where should I begin or what would be a good way to approach this?
When I think about it, it seems easy and sort of clear to me, but as soon as I have Ableton open and start fucking around then my mind just hits a wall. I know I have a lot of years of learning ahead of me, but I feel like I haven't gotten anywhere in almost a year now and I have nothing at all to show for it, not a single full song.
Thank you for your help in advance. Pic related is how most producers that I admire make it seem.
this is one skill you can improve with time, start making little melodies. It's like how tracing is awful for an artist to do, but it does help with skill. So you can make little musical doodles and experiment them a lot - don't worry about making each one into a fully polished song, just try to get the creative juices flowing.
Hey /bleep/ I have a confession.
>be a couple years ago
>browse /mu/ 24/7
>be an IDMfag
>one day see a thread called "bleeps & bloops"
>chuckle at the name, don't see the name often again, only occasionally
>stop browsing /mu/ shortly after
>start going to uni
>have a specific show for IDM and experimental electronic
>name it BLEEPS & BLOOPS
Should I change it? I didn't know it eventually became a /mu/ meme until I started coming here randomly again.
I don't want to be a giant /mu/ memespouter on the airwaves, especially since it's not even house, techno, uk garage, dub, or any of that.
Here's the playlist for last week if that's what you mean.
I take advantage of the vagueness that "IDM" and "experimental electronic" entail. A few shows ago I added some noisy techno and breakcore.
>that's not memespouting
At first I thought so, but then I wasn't so sure since I realized that /bleeps/ became a thing.
>it's a fitting name
I thought so too; felt totally appropriate.
this shit is so gay.
when did /bleep/ get taken over by fuccboi faggots.
yeah this, this manlet is a fucking cunt.
i hope one day he comes round london asking for pictures, id shoot the cunt just for having shit taste and playing out genereic house music.
is this actually /bleep/
are you being ironic?
Picked up the Dozzy Gol reissue the other day, along with Analogue Cops Party2Dance EP, Tsuba's White EP and Lil' Lous Y U Fall
Good times to be had by all partygoers
no wonder these threads went down the shitter
Not the poster you're replying to, but I'm more annoyed at the EBM stuff etc that's in there. Scruffles should just stick to what he knows.
praising some old ficking critic
I'm furiously downloading house and techno right now, as i will be DJing after my bands gig tonight (i'm not a real DJ).
if anyone has any recs that sound like this i would be really thankful for them.
I also have a severe shortage of techno and acid that isn't afx and seafacts (both genius but i need more)
Really enjoying pic related at the moment.
Looking for similar albums
>Favourite LP(s) of the year so far?

I'm wondering how you keep up to track with all the latest releases, because it seems like there is a constant slew of new ones every time there is a new thread?
What blogs/labels do I need to follow?
Where can I listen to the records? Will they be easily found on tpb and soulseek?
I'm interested in Dubstep and Funky stuff like Rinse FM
find artists you like
go to the pages of the labels they release on
subscribe to email
also, subscribe to the larger retailers (juno, boomkat, etc.) that release things you like
follow soundclouds/bandcamps/youtube channels of things you like.
follow dj sets of djs you like.
that should be enough to keep you buried in releases until the end of time. i still have about 2500 tracks in my "to be listened to" queue.
wow, the second paragraph lol. what a bitter cunt. maybe he got called out for not knowing his shit so being knowledgable has to be for people with too much time on their hands or a coke habit.
well done vice. 10 / 10 once again
i finally ordered this on vinyl and i can't wait for it to get here. but it was shipped from belgium and i'm in the U.S., so i have to. i'm thinking of ordering the original white label pressing of bluff limbo next. what does /mu/ think?
it was $30, and shipping was $20. unfortunately, that's still cheaper than you'll get it anywhere else now. i don't know why that record's so expensive, but it was worth it since it's one of my all time favorite albums. i can get the limited white label version of bluff limbo for about $10 less, and i think i'm going to order it when i get the money.
Abdulla Rashim is way ahead of his time and Northern Electronics just keeps on giving.
The whole 50 cassette thing is a bit edgy but digital is usually a month or 2 later.
cop this now
Kerry Chandler, anyone?
>cop this now
Why, who listens to cassettes?
I collect vinyl because it's physical, but cassette collecters don't even listen to theirs. You could just put a blank tape in a copycat case and people would be none the wiser.
not a cassette collector but cassettes are /
physical. why are you saying that they aren't? And I'm sure a fair amount (most, tbh) of people that go out of their way to buy cassettes will listen to them, too. It's not as if a cassette player is difficult to obtain or expensive or anything.
>And I'm sure a fair amount (most, tbh) of people that go out of their way to buy cassettes will listen to them, too
They really don't though, the vast majority just keep them unplayed, or digitise them once for future listening if they're cassette only.
Cassettes are pure collecters items nowadays.
and that means i give a shit about their music today?
and that means that americans are interested in it? this thread will be dead in about 30 mins
so what if techno started out in america, Europe was writing music 1000 times better than anything america ever has hundreds of years before america even existed. so what though?
hurr durr we invented it
fuck off that doesn't mean shit and you know it's a shit excuse for the sorry state of affairs that is your country
>implying the listening base of music has any effect on the music
>invoking classical music as if it has any bearing on electronic music
All electronic music is europoors feeding off of Americans and Jamaicans and you can continually jerk off into your sterile pool of Anglicized Warp records but everyone who knows anything about Dance music knows that the US was, is, and forever will be the creative hub.
you're welcome for Footwork, Trap, Outsider House, and everything that is fresh in dance music apart from rehashed Bass/Garage
Agreed 100%, as much as I love the UK scene for being daring, innovative and forward thinking, some things just take the piss and there's no check on it.
I mean seriously, do people really get down to SOPHIE - HARD/LEMONADE? As in because they actually enjoy it, not just because they think they should?
>you're welcome for Footwork
you can have it back
thanks, I guess
>your sterile pool of Anglicized Warp records
Erm, you realise nobody listens to Warp in clubs?
>the US was
>is and forever will be the creative hub
This and the Hessle/Metalheadz night before it look ridiculous, I would give my left arm to go
just came home from seeing floating points, pender street steppers and hashman deejay @ soup kitchen in manchester. v. nice vibes all around. nice civilised early night tonight, taking a break from caning pills and the like
Herbert's a wizz too
Oh yes, oh yes
