>why is /bleep/ so shit now
It's because back then nearly all posters had always posted, if you see what I mean. Originally /mu/ largely ignored these threads, but as time went on, more and more 'outside' posters began to pick up on /bleep/. Nowadays more than half of the people in any one thread are relatively new, and so haven't yet sussed out what /bleep/ is about. Whereas previously it was pretty easy to educate and assimilate the low number of new posters, nowadays the sheer volume makes this nigh on impossible. The result is that the overall posting quality is reduced and /bleep/'s self-identity becomes diluted. The most important effect is that veteran posters become cynical and reactionary; helpful and educational replies to newbies are supplanted by dismissive mockery and the eventual developmemt of an 'us vs them' dynamic, typified by the petty 'pardners vs chavs' shitfllinging you've seen over the last few months. Obviously, 4chan being 4chan, this simply invites further arguments, trolling and counter-trolling. Whether from aggrieved newbies who've been told to fuck off one too many times, belligerant OG /bleep/ers or genuine opportunistic trolls, the volume of shitposting becomes so high that many don't even attempt decent conversation, seeking refuge in plug.dj rooms or only posting at slower times of the day. This makes it even easier for external trolls , and even more importantly homegrown ones, to take over and destroy any semblence of a cohesive community.
Fortunately there is a solution, and it's not only simple but it's also one that's been around for so long that it should be ingrained;
>make quality posts, and ignore shitposting
what types of posters are "pardners" and "chavs" meant to represent?
pardners are non club going americans posting non-bleep related "intellectual" electronic music?
and chavs are club going, drug taking brits that only care about what "bangs" in a club environment?
surely /bleep/ is meant to be for the chavs then?
>and even more importantly homegrown ones, to take over and destroy any semblence of a cohesive community
i agree tbh, the OG posters seem to shitpost more than the newfigs, it's like pissing on your own living room carpet
we got a nice thing going with plug dj. Would be nice to see more people hop in but I'm also afraid of nextlevel shitposting like these threads have been the last few weeks
Any man wanna plug tn?
Obviously the origin is brits and yanks, but you're missing the point; it's about the unnecessary stereotyping of each by the other. Originally /bleep/ shared a common identity largely defined by not being /mu/, whereas we've polarised ourselves to fall into two broad camps that pretend to share nothing in common .
in a way it's inevitable because dance music has always been really tribal
i was just talking to a mate about the old Oscillate vs House Of God days in Bham and it was the same shit then, only it was people talking shit and not posting it
thing is club music's always been a ton of competing scenes and if these threads sometimes highlight those differences that doesn't mean it has to tip over into shitposting
loved this one by Reflec, didn't hear the Ozel AB yet
>reflec - untitled
this upcoming release sounds really great too
>Who is the best DJ you've seen live this year?
Hessle boys b2b
>Where was it?
Marble Factory, Bristol
>How was the club?
Decent venue, makes sense to split up Motion the way they did
>if these threads sometimes highlight those differences that doesn't mean it has to tip over into shitposting
some people take it a bit too far. look how ballachingly sore people like ADTBG gets, then when he tries to return the banter it's just seems obsessive and not in any way funny
s/t has decent balance, and so did tensnake, bless his heart
I'm trying to find more music like this, i.e. amateurish hard house influenced bangers that make you want to put on a tracksuit and do stupid shit with your boys.
NYE still counts right ?
>a abandon silo
>One of the better location in my city, that and the abondon factory next to it.
realy enjoyed my self was also a 10/10 lineup
The wizard is a beast.
yo clubbers how much you spend on a average clubnight
>entrance price 10-15 eu
15 is a special price
> locker 2eu
>toilet 2 eu for the whole day
and thats it maby like another 5-10 euro for drinks.
£6 on pre drinks
£4 on taxis
£8 on entry
£10 on drinks inside
then if im dropping thats £15 for 2 pills, what i normally get
so like £30 on a standard night, £45-50 on a big one
>b-but anon I thought we had a real connection when you were grinding me during that Villalobos tune
if im getting drunk probably around $300
if i'm on it probably around $70
this is sydney, aus prices so $300 is $40 bottle of spirits, $20 club entry, $180 drinks, $60 taxi home
if i'm on it probably $50 for pills, $20 entry, end up catching a bus home for shit all
not an uncommon occurrence to spend more then that if drinks are involved tbh. im personally quite stingy with buying rounds for the boys/girls so..
lockout laws, cant get into clubs after 1 or some shit and cant buy drinks after 3
+ most places start kicking people out at 4- 5.
Casino is open 24/7. if im speeding i may as well go to a casino instead of going home and cleaning
if its been a night involving drugs then it depends on how late it is, but it always involves someone's house. if its before like 5am when we get back then i might take some more. then eventually the weed & laughing gas comes out. just chill and chat shit until we get really tired, bedtime around 8-9am
got a travel card for work anyway
£5 for a double stacked pill online
50p for a pack of chewing gum
tap water is free
tie my hoodie round my waist so i don't have to bother with the cloak room
£8.70 for drinks beforehand
so £24.20 on average
if i was broke i'd just drop the alcohol before
if i'm still feeling up, go back to a m8s house and smoke week, have another tin or two, maybe some nos and go to sleep
if i'm pretty much down, i'll just jump on the bus/tube, put some headphones on, listen to some nice chilled tunes, get home, drink some orange juice, pop and etizolam and go to sleep
cheesy as fuck, sounds like vidya OST. Not that bleep should be /beardstroking/, but I still don't get why people cream over Burial so much. He made 1 decent album, 1 great album and a bunch of mediocre shit afterwards (with some good stuff here and there)
This one is laughably corny
>inb4 "that's the point u just don't get it"
why the fuck are all u lot in these threads buying drinks at clubs?
either take drugs
have a couple of drinks b4 hand and then just stay out in willpower
people trying to get more drunk whilst inside a club is so weird. like, why? just listen to the music
yeah, i might have a drink or two if i get there while things are still warming up, just as something to do, but drinking all night seems weird
it's not that, it's just constantly leaving the dance floor to go and wait to get served again and again seems like a real drag
why do it? just to keep the club in business?
idk, i suppose it's just because here in london no one drinks to get drunk in clubs. people just take w/ever and maybe have a beer or two
there's nothing anyone hates more than a drunk person in a club
people stumbling around? drunk
taking up huge spaces to take group shots with their friends with the flash going of? drunk
a fight breaks out? they're always drunk
throwing stuff around? drunk
it's just the worst club for clubbing and i hate seeing people inside too fucked up on it
yeah, i normally do, just while i'm coming up or w/ever. i just think it's weird that people in these threads are drinking to get properly drunk
if i go home "rarely" ill drink some tea, shitpost on bleep a bit
and take a shower
but most of the time we will have a after at a friends home, get some beer when the store opens (8-9 AM) and we if i we used drugs keep going on have some No2 extra pill / dip of mdma and yust talk / hang out till maby 1-2 pm.
in november i went to celebrate my bday in london, so prior to leaving i asked on here if anyone wanted to come with, as i had a spare ticket. one anon replied, but only after we had already left so we couldn't arrange anything.
i reckon if people kept on asking things like that could be arranged. especially if you guys who are alone sort of stuck together maybe?
