>>53790412 >Why is this album is great? It's not. It's not actually bad, but it doesn't make sense at all in 2008. Why is this praised again? This is type of music you would hear in clothing stores. Yet I like deep/ambient house, this doesn't touch my soul and/or feet.

Because it is an album that evokes a lot of nostalgia for people who grew up/listened a lot of old school house. You obviously don't "get" where Thaemlitz is coming from (even though he clearly says it in the album, many times), the most likely reason it "doesn't touch my soul and/or feet." is because the album isn't your typical house music fare that you're used to, which is fair enough, but to say this is the type of stuff you would hear in clothing stores is idiotic lmao
This isn't a "house music album", but a celebration and a retrospective look at Thaemlitz's past. A lot of the cliches of house music are subdued in favor of an ambient atmosphere, and he restrained himself from using a lot of other bleep production techniques (no compression, so it sounds very quiet weird bass phasing tricks etc) so it is impossible to play this in most club settings.
This is an album for people who are either very familiar with the old school house scene, grew up around it, or simply, like house music and aren't so fast to jump into idiotic conclusions ; )
>>53790799 >album that evokes a lot of nostalgia but that doesn't make any album good, is it?
>You obviously don't "get" where Thaemlitz is coming from I get it now, it's nostalgic, DUDE 80s, bla bla bla, aaand why should it change anything?
>This isn't a "house music album", but a celebration and a retrospective look at Thaemlitz's past. again does it seriously make music itself any better?
>he restrained himself from using a lot of other bleep production techniques (no compression, so it sounds very quiet weird bass phasing tricks etc) so it is impossible to play this in most club settings. that's what I've heard myself, I guess it also has a sticker that says that it's 'too quiet because of no compression' or smth.
yet you say >to say this is the type of stuff you would hear in clothing stores is idiotic lmao and making yourself >so fast to jump into idiotic conclusions ; ) because my mom works at clothing store and I gave her this album and she plays it several times a month and enjoys it as great background music
>>53790946 >why should it change anything Because you can't understand what he was trying to communicate with this particular work if you're completely ignorant of house music of the past. I think that's what he's trying to say.
>>53790993 >means it's a bad album? I never said that, you're just seem to be angry (by calling me an idiot several times) because I don't get the concept of this album and don't think it's great. I literally said here >>53790623 >It's not actually bad
>you aren't here to hear opinions I am. >you already made up your mind about the album yet I wanted to know why is this praised and I thank you for 'spoonfeeding' me.
>>53790946 >This is type of music you would hear in clothing stores. >This is music I actually gave my mom to play in her clothing store. you should leave this thread and just go be happy that your mother loves you and doesn't know you're this much of a collosal retard
>>53790412 So my suggestion falls into the category of 'Deep House' but is nothing like DJ Sprinkles or Moodyman. Check out Motor City Drum Ensemble. The focus is a little 'catchier' but less 'academic' than both.
Also check out Sprinkles other work. There is a lot of it so you will have plenty to listen to. I personally own her 32 hour album on micro sd card.
A lot of deep house is singles oriented so you will hardly find an album as great as Midtown 120 Blues. I think Moodyman Silent Introduction is just as good if not close second to Midtown.
