The weekend has landed. All that exists now is clubs, drugs, pubs and parties. I've got 48 hours off from the world, man. I'm gonna blow steam out my head like a screaming kettle, I'm gonna talk cod shit to strangers all night, I'm gonna lose the plot on the dancefloor. The free radicals inside me are freakin', man! Tonight I'm Jip Travolta, I'm Peter Popper, I'm going to never-never land with my chosen family, man. We're gonna get more spaced out than Neil Armstrong ever did, anything could happen tonight, you know? This could be the best night of my life. I've got 73 quid in my back burner - I'm gonna wax the lot, man! The Milky Bars are on me! Yeah!
daily reminder that actress is incredibly overated and if you're at all impressed by anything he's done you seriously need to go back and listen to warp/mille plateaux/raster noton/mego 90s discographies, hopefully then you'll learn realise actress is the epitome of a talentless hack
Anyone doing something cool this evening?
Gonna hang with some m8s and then go see Ulterior Motive and others at fabriken, Stockholm.
Never heard their music but they're on Metalheadz and I've heard good things being said about their stuff.
>Casual accounts of the history of electronic music tend to point back to familiar sources: Suicide’s babble’n'hum; Cluster, Klaus Schulze and the rest of the Krautrock squad; the stygian mulch-music of early Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle; and of course Kraftwerk’s meticulous robot pop.
That hit home. Might have to sit down and listen to some of them.
doesn't look half-assed.
Some of these I came across reading 'Journey Into A Plugged In State Of Mind' which catalogues a good chunk of notable releases in electronic music history, although overall it was quite anglocentric and mainstream in what albums were discussed.
Just finished nights (was on for 14 hours yesterday, 8pm to 10am and then back in for 8pm for next nights) and I can barely stay awake now, but I don't want to go to sleep now since I'll probably end up all night again. I just missed Uncle Dug's show this morning and it sounded good, 94 classics, tuned in just when he was playing Remarc - Soundmurderer (Loafin' In Brockley Mix).
Listened to Boxed Vol. 2 and it was very good, preferred Vol. 1 a little but they are roughly as good as each other. Also recently listened to DJ Scud - Ambush, The Redeemer - Hardcore Owes Us Money and Alec Empire - The Destroyer, forgot how Jungle-y the latter sounded at times.
Was going to listen to new Traxman but decided to re-listen to DJ Rashad - Double Cup instead. Will probably listen to the Charizma and Peanut Butter Wolf comp later tonight.
>Tfw no clubs or anything with interesting music in your area
>Just going to have your friends over and listen to music on your system and trip/get drunk like every weekend
Feels good and bad at the same time
i'm going to my first underground club night in a few days, its from around midnight to 6ish in the morning, anything I should know in advance? Never been to an event that didn't end end before 12. Guess everyone's going to be drugged out of their heads?
Nah m8 it's real. I'm in America, everything worth going to is 21+ because of the drinking age, finding an 18+ night that's not full of shit artists is rare. It's pinch if you're wonderin.
>Tfw no clubs or anything with interesting music in your area
>Tfw friends don't like bleeeps and bloops
Ah fair enough. America sounds pretty shit for lots of reasons, sorry m8.
Pinch will be fun though. I guess a fair amount of people will be drugged out of their heads but whatever, just have a nice time - I'm sure you will.
p.s. nice dubs then trips
Anyone like to put their turntable on a nice soft, bouncy bed when they spin? Sometimes I jump on the bed too if it's Workshop08 xDD
That 6am is a terrible time for a club to close. It's just a bit too early. Personally, I'm a fan of the 8am closure, but 10am is good if you want normal McDonalds food or if it overruns then you can go straight to the pub for your Sunday roast or other local delicacy.
And no, not everyone will be drugged out of their heads. There's probably a better atmosphere later on in the morning than in the 2-4 twat peak.
Something happened last night for which words seem to fall short. But I feel that there a couple of reasons why I need to at least give it a try. The setting: a Sendai experimental live performance during one of the OFFICIAL NUITS SONORES PAGE events in Lyon. Everything before the show was perfect. Great hospitality, good vibe amongst the artists involved, you name it. The one thing bothering both Yves De Mey - artist page and myself was that we had to play a 900 capacity venue, filled with a (very young) crowd expecting techno and being unresponsive to our experimental live set. The opening DJ was playing peak-time techno, another point of concern. But what we could not have imagined was the total and utter lack of respect, the open display of aggression and hostility and finally the attempts to hurt us physically. Already after five minutes into our set we realised that this audience was not going to give us a chance. They started throwing things at us. A coin hit me right on the head. After 25 minutes a bottle of water hit us and our equipment, and we decided to call it a day.
I have NEVER seen such aggression in the context of a musical event. I am still shocked remembering the sight and sound of this mass of mindless, spoiled people who had zero regard for anything but their own immediate egotistical satisfaction. Obviously some mistakes were made: first of all, we should not have been made part of this line-up or venue. Secondly, asking a 3 EUR admission fee will invite al sort of people besides those who are into music - and that's putting it mildly. But even these facts do not justify what happened last night. The level of stupidity was beyond belief. I apologize profoundly to those people in the audience who did appreciate what we were trying to do. I know you were out there, but sadly you were outnumbered by a bunch of egocentric, aggressive morons who had no respect for us nor the people around them. If this is the way things will go in Lyon then you won't see me again.
That's lame. That Sendai release is quite serious stuff.
I can imagine it happening though - it's not the easiest of listens and people do seem to get very upset / offended by music they don't like / understand.
what the fuck, where do you live? in the UK 6am is late for a club. if youre still buzzing by the time it closes then everyone just goes back to a friends house until they decide to go to bed
And how many times does it need to be explained to the album denying bleep fans that the album format is used widely within various electronic genres, more so in recent years. The classification of bleeps and bloops doesn't just include bleep approved stuff, but genres such as downtempo, electropop and other non-club music which are morely likely to come in album format. And anyway, it fits in with the rest of their format and playing, say two or three EPs/singles, just doesn't have the same flow as an album.
They're all going to vote for Aphex Twin so this is irrelevant really.
Sounds horrible lad, Thankfully I've never been in that type of atmosphere.
Belfast has this rave/techno event called shine that occurs every month or two, Erol Alkan is playing at it this weekend but ill be going to the next with clouds
Anyway, The last one i was at MK headlined, But i was only attending for Marcel Fengler's set.
Because of MK's (Route94 was there too) pop stuff (head is a jungle/always) it attracted the common plebeian and chav/chavette.
Every time i walked to the smoking area or toilets I felt uncomfortable as these people were just retarded fuckwits that could barely speak already, Never mind being off their faces on aggressive anti social drugs.
Thankfully the acts are split up into three rooms so i didn't have to spend any actual time with these mongoloids.
Sorry to hear about what sounds like a horrid time
>They're all going to vote for Aphex Twin so this is irrelevant really.
What's going to get in is going to be the more popular album-oriented stuff that /mu/core fans are familiar with and /bleep/ stuff doesn't stand a chance.
Do they start earlier now though? For clubs that close 6am or later they only open at 11pm and don't really get started until an hour or two later. I imagine if they had to close at 4am they would open at 9pm.
i live in manchester and here the latest you get is 6am. most stuff closes at 4am...
i guess its probably because residencies are so close to all the clubs, the city centre is a very tightly knit place
the majority of music discussed in these threads is released in 12"/EP format. the downtempo/ IDM stuff is not representative of these threads. ive got around 90 bleep-related records and out of those i think 5 are albums
I am aware that the favoured release for club music is smaller formats, but that vote/most of /mu/ means a wider variety of electronic music when it says bleeps and bloops. it's not just catering to people in this thread. And it doesn't mean the album format is neglected as much as some bleep fans think it is.
And your record collection means nothing as obviously that can be altered by genre, date of release and your own personal interests and budget.
/bleep/ is for semi-elitist underground club music, such as music favoured by Resident Advisor. But we hate Resident Advisor.
There was period of 3 days a while back where this thread featured mainly arguments about what is bleep bloop, EDM, /bleep/, and other autistic arguments. Heady days.
>tfw no decent clubs where you live
>tfw only way to feel connected to club culture is to make club music
>tfw never been to decent club so it all comes out weird anyway
That Parklife line up is great and I would be there, but I'll be listening to some shit native with a guitar in South America, probably. Detonate looks shit.
Better than the Glastonbury line up which is basically acid house and Seth Troxler.
>tfw plenty of decent clubs where you live
>tfw work 2-3 weekends a week
>tfw even when go to a club feel out of place
>tfw take 2 days to recover from a night out
What the hell is club culture anyway?
are you mad the parklife lineup is actually really good lol
i'm volunteering so i get free entry. ben ufo b2b midland should be great on the saturday, not to mention snoop dogg
then on the sunday i'm seeing pearson sound, joy orbison, nina kraviz etc.
what's "everything that is wrong with UK dance scene" about that lineup?
yeah, i just get into bed and hallucinate for hours about being back at the club. very strange. think it happens when i mix md with weed cos the one time last week where i didn't smoke on the comedown i didn't get the hallucinations
i get to sleep after a night out using my prescription zopiclone
which is ironic because the zopiclone is meant to target the anxiety which was almost certainly caused by drugs in the first place
Line-up is fine the but the crowd is shit. Past 6 o'clock it all goes downhill. If anything I wish more people were drugged up rather than roid-raging on fruit cider. I'm just bitter m8, last year was ruined for me so I won't be going back.
Going to stick to the dingy clubs full of pilled up bleep nerds rather than the aggressive musclebeach lads.
Some of the orderings are fucking dumb though.
I've noticed that sometimes DJs like to do a set earlier in the day so they can go off and do another set that night somewhere.
Not been to Parklife, but at other places I've had more aggro off people both getting drunk and taking drugs than straight up drunks. And lets not mention the cokeheads.
yeah ok fair enough you're not wrong about that
i just learn to ignore the people and have a little laugh with my friends at the most retarded individuals
and yeah the order of set times is all fucked up. i guarantee that ben ufo b2b midland will be on before 5pm.
experiencing functional music: the physical phenomenon and not just abstract patterns of signals
just been announced that there will be an underland-hosted afterparty somewhere in the city centre, 12-6am and underground music.
the one i'd probably recommend most is the zutekh one
cos ben ufo b2b midland are headlining, and it's at 1 primrose street which is a sick venue imo
paleman one at roadhouse would be live too i guess
I hear that all the time from people big into dance. I guess cause what he's doing is just quite different to a lot of his contemporaries so its easy to assess unfairly, and obviously for people that listen to a lot of obscure records it'd be easy to be a bit cynical about an artist a load of rockists are into that doesnt really represent the genres that well at all
Didn't realise that it was an actual thing but the random few seconds I saw somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 of the way through that vid looked pretty sick tbh. wouldn't do in a club tho
tfw you cant say alright instead of hello like a londoner
Just bought tickets for Dekmantel. Anyone else going?
daily reminder that /bleep/ is incredibly overated and if you're at all impressed by anything it's done you seriously need to go back and listen to Darmstadt/IRCAM/New York expressionists et al, hopefully then you'll learn realise /bleep/ is the epitome of a talentless hackdom
lol practically everyone here is english
what?? it's still absolutely sick, as long as you are into anything outside of house and techno
on the saturday, ONE of the 10 or so stages has the lineup of DMZ, pinch, the bug ft. flowdan, hatcha and phaelah
another stage on the friday has pinch, roska, mumdance, dusk & blackdown, wen, logos and acre
on the sunday, one of the stages has kahn & neek, newham generals, elijah & skilliam, flowdan, royal t and flava d
on the beach in the day on thursday, not even on a main stage, is the lineup of DJ ez, wookie, eliphino, dub fx and hatcha
jesus broaden your horizons it's still a god-tier lineup
and i forgot the contact stage on the thursday. youngsta icicle VIVEK j:kenzo truth and nomine. normally people would come all the way across the country to london to go to contact
Daily reminder that global bass is the only scene worth following these days, Jersey club and bmore club is dead. footwork and juke will never be relevant, Deep House is the new Brostep, grime will never make a comeback, and ukg is for nostalgiafags who can't let go.

>tfw listened to full discographies of Kompakt, Perlon, M-nus and Cocoon
>tfw I had to sit through 8 days of content to realize Minimal Techno and Tech House are not for me
I think the guy that made this browses here, he linked it a few times before linking his mixmag set and admitting it was him or something along those lines
yea man what do you think of these?
one of my first dnb tunes
^^ thats the first tune i got signed
heres some acid techno i made with screaming
nah i don't DJ, im not that concerned with it until i have enough records to actually play vinyl, then i'l probably try to get booked
and i just sent the label some tunes and they liked them, they're a small label but very professional and it sold quite well
I haven't properly listened to the crossfade for it but they described it as some Jungle type shit, so let's see.
I still have a few R.A.W. tapes left to listen to for more poor quality Jungle mixing.
going to see john hopkins with my friend hopefully but if he doesn't want to go then fuck it I'll go by self any advice if I do go alone? it's at some little club what should I expect first time ever going to any sort of event
minimal techno can mean anything though. Theres plenty of ambient minimal thats amazing and the berlin style minimal is fucking sick too
Tech house is not the one though, it all sounds the fucking same
So i assume most people on /mu/ are american;
how different is your bleep culture? I mean it seems totally alien; the music, the clubs and everything.
Also does drum and bass come undo bleep threads?
looking forward to this, sounding like a really nice release. love proibito, or just generally anthony naples does tbh
Dude, I loved Austien Cesear "There's A Crack In Everything", espacially one year, and that Royal Crown Of Sweden EP. So yeah, I like Proibito, and am really looking forward to this.
this depends what definition of UK bass you're using. the specific music referred to as 'UK bass' thats been coming out since 2010ish didn't evolve from hardcore/rave music, it's a mish-mash of dubstep, grime, techno, garage, house, jungle etc.
I always saw it as the most recent evolution of Dubstep, which is in itself related to UKG which came before it. UK Bass has elements of rave/hardcore in it sometimes, but I would say it has more in common witrh music that is derived from UKG.
Yeah I know, but I'd think if we did have to categorise it (I don't know why we need to actually but since that's what we are talking about let's just stick with it) then this way would be the best. I'd think that historically speaking UKG is in itself an evolution of House, but it's sufficiently different enough and has derivatives that a large enough to be their own genres to allow it to be a column of it's own.
It's a pointless classification to anyone who knows about the music in depth but it's alright as a starting point for someone who doesn't.
all the new wave grime stuff iv heard has been shit apart from some of visionists stuff. Most of it dosn't even sound like grime at all
old grime is best grime
YES this is what i wanted to see. glad mcs are actually starting to take the plunge and spit bars over the new future-grime stuff, everyone was scared to up until now. big up novelist
it's just down to personal tastes m8 but this movement has a lot of people backing it. wen's album got a lot of good press (even though half of that was more bassy-garagey). and this track seems to be doing pretty well too
i know the actual term '130' is sort of stupid and a joke, but the music itself is loved on there isn't it? i swear theres like a 200 page thread on it on there and everyone bums keysound
yeah kinda gets bummed
personally i dont like the grimier stuf that much, boring to me but some of the sorta 4/4 or garagey stuff is cool, just never really got into it, too much of a dubstephead i guess
>Implying owsla is a bad label
loved that Phuture Doom album they put our last year, I could just cop out and write it off as a "guilty pleasure" but can't because it was honestly one of my favorite albums of 2013.
From one LP to the next he varies quite a lot and the EPs in between share characteristics of the LPs that they're near.
I'd tell you to listen to Silver Cloud EP and Gettoville LP but I'm biased towards his later stuff.
I guess someone has been posing as me or something.
the only time i've posted it was when i posted my mixmag mix.
I've been on this board for years posting in math rock threads and shit. starting the occasional night slugs thread
if you liked the Caustic Window comp check out his Classics compilation (under the Aphex Twin alias)
for getting into the Analords I recommend you go chronoligcally with them, alternative pick the Chosen Lords compilation and go with whatever tracks you liked best from that one
austin cesear is a homie of mine. it fucking depresses me how good he is tho. we'll sit in his room and he'll do live remixes of everything we play off his laptop. not even fair. has like 100000 tracks you'll never hear and they're all good.
he just moved to NYC tho, so SF is now almost totally depleted of good artists. The only good thing we have left is our nice little shop RS94109. if you are ever in San Francisco please do yourself a favor and hangout inside RS.
also at his going away party opening for silent servant he sampled a few of my ambient tracks on a funktion 1 and i think it was the happiest i've ever been.
fuck it if we're posting music tunes here's one of mine. i'm about to start listening to everybody else's right now. i wish more people in bleep would talk about their music i know you all make it.
people are curious about the US scene
i live in oakland, pretty close to San Francisco. I can take a train there in <20 minutes.
our scene is pretty damn terrible. just a bunch of local djs who download stuff off of beatport's top 100 list before they open for flown in over hyped mega "talent". We have pockets of quality every now and then, we had madteo come and play an afterparty a few weeks ago for instance, and aurora halal/ital just played live. but really our scene relies on importing quality talent, and we have no shortage of people who only dj, and do it poorly.
the biggest thing happening this weekend is some fuck from animal collective djing, and hudson mohawke. fuck all of that. god damn alice fucking glass is coming to dj here soon too, for the second time in the past year. WHO THE FUCK NEEDS THAT.
the sad thing is tho, that our scene was really really good for a hot minute, but everybody has moved to either NYC or Berlin. honestly i'm tempted to do the same, but i feel guilty for complaining about our scene considering its pretty okay compared to most of america
RS94109 is the best thing about SF tho. run by the twins skander and ossin (lookout for skander on LACR sometime soon) and their friend josh woods. they are pretty well connected to the /bleep/ world and have all sorts of crazy in store parties. after madteo played that afterhours here he played tons of unreleased tracks in the shop. Ben UFO has played there, fucking tyree cooper, vereker used to just dj there constantly before he moved to NYC. basically anybody who would care about a /bleep/ thread in SF hangs out at RS. right now 2/3 of the owners are hanging with the dance mania crew in chicago trying to buy up some collections. i'm very excite.
Yeah at least in wellington it's meant the rise of decent afterparties that people actually go to, or it means staff are more keen to drink after a gig so I get more free drinks.
Grime, also known as 8-bar, nu shape, sublow and eskibeat, is a style of British music that emerged in Bow, London. It was developed by teens of mostly African and Caribbean heritage, in the early 2000s, primarily as a development of UK garage, drum and bass, hip hop and dancehall. Pioneers of this style include English rappers Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, Roll Deep, Kano and N.A.S.T.Y Crew.
doesn't have to be put into a genre.
though >>47189300, is about as far away from what it actually is as you could possibly get.
mix of UK funky with some Chi-town influences obviously and just kode9 fuckery
are there really people so posh that they cant say "alright"? that's mad. i address everyone in my life with "alright" and i didn't exactly grow up on the estate. ur just spilling ur spaghetti m8 say alright if u want.
The idea is to get the vibe going. Then you maintain the vibe with a trance inducing bass and the right lights. See, we’re primal, heading for cosmic, and just when you think we’re in galactic ecstasy, we go acid. It’s hardcore nu-tronic mutilation. Now we get serious. See, we’re going on a psychotically calibrated, electronically executed, digitally compressed, pus-excreting journey to sonic grooviness! The world is coming to an end, but we don’t care, because we’re moon-tan nocturnal, vinyl consuming animals drifting easy through friendly space. An analog trance, nothing can doom this groove; we’re controlling the vibe, manipulating the madness, sucking in the energy and we have cosmic nerve endings that are telling us how to move, what to do, where to go and then we know, that it’s time to let go.
Do free parties exist in America? And musics like hardtek, hardcore and psytrance?
Or your only option is to go clubbing with "candy" EDM?
This one club in Vancouver spins psy/goa every thursday. Not exactly a free party, they do typical free before 9:30, $6 cover after routine.
I'd love to know where more hardtek and hardcore plays. But pretty much spot on, the rave scene in Vancouver at least is just all candy EDM ravers.
I'm more of a breakcore, IDM guy when it comes to bleeps and bloops. I'm not big on the club scene, no one plays the shit I like.
> not living the dream in berlin or hamburg
> every week from thursdy to monday there are tons of free illegal open air parties with up to 600 people and somtimes 3 or more raves going on at the same time
