Welcome to /bloop/, the other side of /bleep/, the place where we discuss any post-techno popular electronic music that our club oriented brothers tend to pass. That is, mainly, IDM, and other music related to it.
You haven't heard pic related? It's the R U Oho? 12" Remix EP from Lackluster. Every single track is stellar, and the release is a cornerpiece to any serious collection.
Also, there's the wonderful FACT magazine list that is surprisingly credible, the upper half just released to day, have a look!
Taking part in any flamebait from /bleep/ is discouraged, they're a nice bunch, except for the few with woeful insecurities and self-esteem problems.
Can we broken beat or similar or does it have to be techno related still?
Nah, broken beat is fine by me. I don't actually know too much about it apart from the obvious ones (Prefuse, etc...). Educate me.
>implying post-techno isn't a legit term to describe the playingfield of electronic music beyond late 80s when detroit techno hit the scene
I had initially high hopes after Minipops, but after hearing the whole thing I was left a bit underwhelmed. It's a very good track, and I was expecting at least a few to surpass it, but in the end I don't think there were any but maybe a couple ones that barely averaged it. Needs another listen, but I'll be pushing the decision regarding purchasing a physical copy into the future. Nearly 40€ is too much at the moment.
>the top 10 on that FACT Mag list
Can't say I'm surprised by the artists included.
Where was Chevron on the list though? Emails and Viruses is fucking beautiful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5vEk_FWrGY
I was surprised about the Arovane track at #7, it's my favorite from him. Nice to know someone feels the same way. Other than that, what do you expect really... it's almost "mandatory". At least the tracks were pretty good choices. Maybe not the artists' best pieces, but at least iconic and/or significant historically.
it's not out yet save for a couple of tracks
Does anyone know what genre this is? Sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm pretty new to electronic music and don't really understand all the different subgenres.
>mfw i don't like either
>asking the genre of fucking osamu sato
Well, let's just say "IDM".
Oh yeah, love both of these. NRSB-11 I ran into looooong time ago, thanks for the reminder.
Trying to calculate some z-transforms at the moment, can't partake in trying to keep the thread alive too much.
sounding good in here bloop!
making me recall some tracks from back in the day.
it's gonna be a good night. i know it.
Never heard of this, not bad.
tbh mate i've been trawling mu for fucking years on and off and i've only just clicked that bloop is where i should have been all along, so i'm glad that went down well. hi bloop.
To be honest I don't think most of his albums are that good, but the remix stuff is fantastic. He has some great recent singles though. For an example the soundtracks to these. Esa is a pretty stand up guy.
Nah, it's all good. To be honest though I don't really like Rephlex or especially Planet Mu THAT much.
Hello ultravisitor, and welcome.
Hmm that album seems to be on my "to-do" list on discogs. Sounds nice, need to bump it up, very good find. Worm Interface is a good label too, released the couple first Freeform albums.
new autechre live set from the Warp 25 show dropped today
check it out bros: http://www.neuralcorrosion.com/?id=aekrakow
i always get such a fussy warm feeling from the plod album. it's homely. maybe it's that steaming flask of hot beverage on the cover. who knows.
loving this freeform track, i just wish there was a bit more low end to pad it out a bit.
Yeah honestly the Plod from a quick listen sounded better than Freeform, he isn't really something to write home about but nice enough if you want to get into this stuff in-depth.
If you want the homeliest IDM that the earth carries, then you NEED this album in your life. The sixth track including its remix... just, no words...
>I don't really like Rephlex or especially Planet Mu THAT much
>>50111624 here: fair play. Warp's a favourite too.
I'd favour Rephlex over Mu from what I've heard of each label because there's just something about the former's releases that always makes me feel great.
Maybe it's because they're older releases on average.
My only problem with Replhlex is that it can sound a tad to acidy for my taste. Some stellar releases from the still...
>Bocum Welt - Module 2
>Tango N' Vectif, Bluff Limbo
I probably have a lot more to explore in their repertoire.
I can nab it for you, soon.
Also, Skipsapiens. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eChTYTYMoGY
that would be brilliant. great flow and development to this Skipsapiens track. glad he didn't descend into too much of a "live jam" guy kept his cool. here have some polygon ring. cracking album, much glitching.
I don't know if this really fits in here, but I guess ASC is more /bloop/ than /bleep/.
Favourite producer of all-time. I wish he got more recognition because he makes really original music.
When these howls/soundscapes start creeping in at 1:30 it's just the most beautiful thing.
And I don't listen to ambient really, but I doubt anything can compare to this and some of the music on his ambient albums. It's just gorgeous.
Some more tunes
Is this still accurate? If not what would you add/remove.
Well for one there are a lot of releases there that are neither minimal techno nor microhouse, a LOT more than the ones marked with a star. I'd remove at least two thirds of it. Maybe some day we could work separate charts for both genres separately.
we're all familiar with ursula yes? good good.
>RDJ makes a comeback
>suddenly /mu/ gives a shit about IDM
