where my trance boys at
This series of releases is pretty cool.
Lets get comfy.
(whole album is free btw)
does anyone remember this album that came out last year i think. it was a series of 2 or 3 LPs and it had like some birds on the cover and a lot of verticle lines crossing over it with some of them cut out
it was like some experimental dance record
Just started mixing (on laptop to begin with) after getting into danse musique for just over ayear now. Problem is I listened to most of it on the likes of soundcloud/spotify. Where is a god place to cop releases for free as I will only be able to afford a number of tracks from the likes of beatport each month
anyone else hyped for this?
yuzo koshiro is one of my all time favourites
post more tunes
Berghain, Sub Club, Bar 25, ://about blank for homopatik and I've got a soft spot for a club called Lounge in my city (Melbourne) which is open until midday and plays TTT type shit early and then techno with like no melody from 5 onwards.
Just copped the reissue of Neptune's Lair by Drexciya the other day. Gerald Donald is king. Anyone remember this track of his under the name Glass Domain? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Itmsqu0UvC0#t=81
Hey beep, trying to find this one music video for a techno song where there's a girl going on a date with a guy then killing the guy by biting is dick off all while nature videos play as silhouettes of the two people. I've tried /r/ but no reply and its been driving me crazy. If anybody can help, I'd much appreciate it.
Anyone into electro from the 80s, like the hip hop shit that people breakdanced to?
>get gig to play an "80s style" set at some high school months ago
>load up playlist with classic italo (ken laszlo, miko mission, koto, tha list goes on)
>mfw some fagtrons actually complain about lack of dadrock bands like guns and roses, led zep, ac/dc etc
>playing at a high school
>not expecting this
>Post about Sully - Blue EP on some sort of spanish Pitchfork
>mod reply to me saying "wow, this Burial copycat #24 is very good"
>mfw he is the "electronic music specialist" of the site
I'm guessing he's heard something like Landcruising or something and wants to know more.
no, it's because /bleep/ is not for everything considered 'electronic music'. it is specifically for club-orientated dance music, and IDM does not fall under this umbrella. also, the whole idea is to avoid discussion of stuff that is discussed elsewhere on /mu/ all the time. stuff like aphex twin (other aliases are cool), boards of canada, autechre, etc.
you wouldn't discuss indie rock in a post-rock general would you?
it's the same idea, except /mu/ in general knows shit all about electronic music so they can't see the distinction between bleep music and IDM
but i reckon a lot of aphex and squarepusher tracks are club music, albeit of another era
i think the real answer has more to do with cultural associations than with actual sound or influences
a lot of it is to do with cultural associations, yes. in the early days of bleep you'd see people trying to explain the 'dance music scene' and the rest of /mu/ scoffing at the concept
let's say i like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xulu8qj0Upo
really lo-fi bare bones minimal techno. where do i go from here? any recommendations?
it's kind of stupid tho cos I could post a Carl Craig ambient track and everyone would be all 'I'm not worthy, Detroit etc etc' but if i post a banging Squarepusher track like Venus No 17 everyone's like 'IDM, GTFO'
it's more to do with fashion and marketing than anything, but whatever, I know my place :D
it's not about whether it's a banger, squarepusher generally doesn't get played out and it isnt composed with the club in mind. that specific track would of been ok i guess, just don't post his noodly undanceable bass guitar stuff.
i do think people need to chill out on the whats not /bleep/ and what is tho. just brings negativity into the thread. ive heard lots of people say breakcore is only for shut-in nerds in here when it's some of the most common music for free parties and raves where i'm at.
Tim Paris, guys.
Do you know some cool Spotify playlists, which are updated regularly
Like this Boiler Room one for example:
Or this for Dub Techno
Holy fuck this guy literally just added a standard 4/4 house kick, snare and hi hat over an already existing track and called it a remix and it became a hit
What the actual fuck, why do I even bother trying to be original anymore?
hes weird and experimental
i disagree personally, his /bleep/ stuff tends to pretty run of the mill if enjoyable. i'd say muslimguaze and his ethnic drone techno is the merzbow of /bleep/ if anyone
Arches, Art School, Buff Club, Sleazy's and the occasional Illegal Warehouse Parties
>that album art
like, m8 you're in teklife the fuck are you doing releasing stuff w/ album art that makes it look like some awful youtube nightcore shit
I really like Congo Natty's breed of jungle I've just been going through most of his releases and aliases. Who else should I check out for that dub reggae vibe that hits really hard like that?
huh? You mean Ragga Jungle? look for the "Jungle Hits" compilations in the archive
/bleep/ what have been the best Techno records of 2014? Already got the basics like the new Deadbeat and Solens Arc LPs
slightly harder to dance to slower tunes like that, but it gives the music a sort of groove/funk which is harder to achieve above 120. i think that's a big reason why artists like kassem mosse's tunes often sound really funky
2:35 for what im talking about
But it werks well for finding new stuff, just like those lists I posted.
And label:xy works well too
Yeah that funkiness is the thing.
I was asking because i've been writing a track today and it was 130ish bpm but for fun I slowed it to 111bpm and now it's got 10x the groove. Unfortunately keeping it at 111bpm makes it kind of weird / obscure (not a bad thing necessarily) and less dancefloor friendly.
That groove though
Some I'm checking some releases from RA's label of the month
of course they are good, it's kind of cool that i can trust someone else's opinion
This club in berlin, I don't know the name, it was in an abandoned leisure complex and the rooms where deep in the building, was like being in an industrial boiler room or something, was proper mad, to get in, you paid a couple of euro for piece of paper with some stuff written in german, which i think was a "membership card" so they could get around some licensing laws or something.
its good but no way
either pic related or odessa - antenna for me
it would be almost unbearably nostalgic to look back on those big trance parties of the late 90s. kinda glad i'm too young for that shit or i'd have been miserable for the last 10 years knowing i'd never re-live those days
trance revival when
nah they would have been full of idiots, everyone used to dress up as cyberkids and spike their hair and wear stuff like cycling gear when going clubbing.
know what you mean though, i have an older brother who went to ibiza in '99 and went to the club gatecrasher a lot, must have a lot of good memories
I find that 90% of the trance that I enjoy is the early to mid 90s stuff like this:
I absolutely can't stand psytrance despite the fact that so many people seem to view it as the "good" form of trance.
this is all p cool i guess. i still like 95+ trance too though just for those big cheesey melodies.
lol its pretty bad mostly. some of the early goa stuff is tolerable
Nah it defiantly wasn't berghain, I've tried looking it up online, all I can remember it was in the east.
I've still got the piece of paper in my memories box at home, i'll try and google translate it when i get back
Found it! Stattbad
Wasnt even rolling and honestly one of the best nights of my life, had no plans at all, we met some girls in a different bar and they told us about it, we all jumped in taxi and all got there like 2 in morning and just raved out until the ubahn started running again.
yeah ive heard from friends who've gone to berlin that you dont need to be on drugs to stay up all night and have an amazing time when youre in those techno clubs (tresor and golden gate, for them)
they had a hard time finding any. they got offered pills from guys on the way in to tresor but they declined thinking there'd be plenty more less dodgy looking guys in the club, and this was not the case
That feel when your records of these releases just came in the mail. I can't wait to get out of lab to spin them! Laterns was a great release.
anyone here into really really dark stuff like andy stott and actress and some burial? maybe some zomby is that dark too, almost. looking for more house music of that kind, please recommend if you can. hope this is the right thread
do you know of anything like that? i listen to mainly boards of canada type things but some days i feel i need darker stuff but i've listened to too much andy stott and actress and burial
also if anyone knows of anything thats like early opn synths but with a techno / house drum loop (like a night club one) underneath that would be pretty cool . looking to start djing soon
probably a pisstake but
>that "record just came in the mail" feel
Nothing better, anon.
