kickin' it off:
Uhhh... have this, maybe you'll like it or find something useful, Ishkur's guide is really fun but don't take anything he says by heart, he's no absolute authority and some of the stuff in there is wrong.
>What are jungle/hardcore/breaks?
>One in the Jungle archive
>Ninjaaquas oldskool junglebreakbeat archive
>Jungle tools vol. 1, 2, and 4, courtesy of oystensghost

>Various samples and construction kits
Get any DAW or a Akai S3000/S3200 sampler or A Roland W30 and start messing with breaks. The Roland Juno 1 was used to get that oldschool hoover sound, along with other synths/keyboards including the Roland D50 and the Roland
JD - 800.
Here's how to properly use Ishkur's guide too imo.
Look at the genres, then look at the artists he lists as examples, then look up their discography/label their associated with on discogs.
Also, get What.cd or Soulseek to download music.
from earlier threads:
>I AM NEW HERE WHERE DO I START
Ishkur's guide to electronic music is useful for a quick reference (bare in mind it's biased and rather dated): http://techno.org/electronic-music-guide/
Tensnake's youtube playlists offer a good window into the world of classic dance music: https://www.youtube.com/user/arod2211/playlists
Simon Reynolds - Energy Flash
Bill Brewster - Last Night A DJ Saved My Life
>WHERE DO I GET THIS MUSIC
Discogs also has a marketplace which is very useful for finding rare records no longer on the shelves, but do your research before buying anything for an inflated price.

>I AM LAZY AND DO NOT WANT TO THINK FOR MYSELF
>WOW THIS IS ALL OVERWHELMING HOW DO I KNOW WHAT IS WHAT
Record labels are your friend. Discogs probably has the most extensive archive of every release ever, and most people like to discover more music by cataloging labels on discogs and looking at where certain artists have released other stuff.
Other good playlists from
http://blogtotheoldskool.com/ is a cool blog too for breaks stuff primarily
could add to:
>I AM LAZY AND DO NOT WANT TO THINK FOR MYSELF
find out your favourite labels and artists and follow their sc/social media. folks usually post all the podcast and mixes they've done recently. podcasts and mixes are great way to spiral out with your tastes, given it's done by an artist you dig. there's honestly shit-tonn of podcast series, electronic explorations, resident advisor, hyponik, xl8r, fact are quite good...
sgnlf on mixcloud/basso radio is one i check quite frequently
Also this may be funny because everyone should know this, but I feel like it's important that you organize your music and download everything in high-quality and keep your folders neat.
If you don't have a music folder on your computer, come on, what are you doing.
Uploaded this for some guy.

I'd have to think about singles.
ok /bleep/ let's play a game.
i'm going to post a dubstep tune. someone reply with one thats better. eventually we should end up with the best dubstep tune of all time.
So, is the game over now?
That's the way I label releases and it's just easier to copy and paste the whole thing than the copy and paste and then remove the catalog number and year.
>is it some kind of mild aspergers
Basically yeah. At least that is what literally everyone I know tells me.
one of the few good releases on a label seem to be the most rare with the least amount of copies, fuck so annoying, been waiting for this to show up on discogs for an eternity
That label has some pretty decent tunes on it actually.
Does go into Hard Trance territory quite often though. Still an alright label.
I still haven't listened to Ophidian - Between The Candle And The Star. It's actually been ages since I heard anything from him. I remember the first time me and my friends heard this in GCSEs and we were convinced there wasn't anything that could be more Hardcore: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2q4MhLu6Jw
Then we found about Speedcore later on. I knew a guy in uni who was friends with someone who apparently only listened to Speedcore and nothing else and he'd never let his mates listen to what he was listening to. That guy asked me what Speedcore was and when I showed him his response was "...this is all that guy used to listen to for years? Fucking hell Jake why would you do that."
has anyone else heard the latest Psyk album? i just listened to it last night and it was fucking amazing.
>bought any records lately m8?
i went to new york city last week and got a copy of bleep:10 and a really fancy repress of pic related that has the japanese bonus tracks and an extended version of happy audio. definitely not disappointed on that one. i saw >>48106035 as well, but i had to pass it up unfortunately.
the jacket is really nice, and the artwork is so much more beautiful than the original version. it has different layers of print for the different colors on the jacket. the gold is printed glossier than the rest of it, and it makes it look 3d. it also has a gatefold cover. my copy was in perfect condition (no marks on the corners or anything) because i found it at the back of a fresh stack of records that hadn't even been put on the shelf yet. it made me so happy.
i think the µ-ziq track on bleep:10 was really good, and i liked the gas track. the rest will probably grow on me. the autechre track wasn't what i expected at all.
it's nice. the extended version of happy audio takes up all of side d. the store also had bécs, but i passed it up.
just listen to the music. the image doesn't have to matter.
>just listen to the music. the image doesn't have to matter.
but thats exactly what i mean
it's more of an 'electronica' compilation than a dance music compilation, which i guess i dislike just because i'm not into that music. i am posting in a /bleep/ i.e dance music thread after all
It's more a compilation than an album and it's kinda mainstream-ish, but still a 7/10 listen with some 8/10 tunes like this one : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38TX2_0xcbA
And if you don't have already, listen to that :
>mfw her discogs page is listed as Angel (78)
somebody asked about bop's new album the other day, it's now pre-orderable and previewable:
>tfw going to see Robert Hood live next week
Shit's gonna cash
med school at least tried in the beginning to do something interesting, and hospital was kinda good in the beginning when i was into that type of sound. haven't cared less for their sound of today, but bop's 1st and the 2nd album were quite nice - this seems like a bit of a let down.
who would you see from here? I'm planning on seeing:
Jackmaster & Oneman
Motor City Drum Ensemble
But I'm probably not seeing someone essential
If you honestly think digging that superficially and getting that ignorant of a view on an entire spectrum of music is the way to go then you shouldn't even bother with it. It takes a long time before you finally find your niches, musicwise. You're too used to looking at charts and top __ lists to find shit like most of /mu/ does(which is why /mu/ always talks about the same shit over and over again and doesn't bother with non-charted stuff). Electronic music for the most part is single/EP based so you will have to spend a lot of time digging and searching through shit that has minimal reviews for you to latch onto and have to actually listen through a lot of shit before finding stuff that is you.
It took me 4+ years to find everything I liked and be well versed in it and I still don't feel like I'm there yet.
But then again you can do whatever you want to do.
Have some techno my negro friends:
have some more niggy
So is /bleep/ basically /dancemusic/?
I see a lot of garage, techno, some jungle and maybe hardcore or minimal but what about genres like lowercase or EAI? Anyone here interested in those or would they be better discussed somewhere else?
yeah it's basically /dancemusic/
we used to have a sticky which explained all this in the OP but it's been absent recently
that stuff is better discussed in the /mu/tronica threads
Pretty much dance music, but you might be able to discuss ambient or "IDM" (though one might class that as dance music anyway), really it depends who else happens to be in the thread. Lowercase and EAI would probably be better discussed in other threads.
my name is Luke too son, we should meet up or something :^)
you can preorder it at piccadilly records actually, i went in today and they said theyll have it in stock this week
here you go
/bleep/ was created to discuss the kind of electronic music that isn't often discussed on /mu/ (Techno, House, Jungle, etc).
EAI, Lowercase, Harsh Noise, etc. if often discussed on /mu/, thats why you don't see discussion about those genres in this thread
/bleep/ is mostly dance music yeah, but the crossover with fans of those genres is honestly pretty large. I know a lot of people here including myself are into noise, onkyo, eai and musique concrete
Famtina Al Qadiri is the epitome of a pseudo intellectual and that fact terrible shit like this is getting press coverage because of some half baked conceptual excuse is pretty annoying
okay. this ep was really cool and kromestar's going in a completely new direction with this one. sounds more synthy and less based on drums (particularly snare drums) than his previous music. i'm looking forward to more releases like this.
what do you guys think of this, or kromey's other stuff?
1080p is my label of the year so far, glad I discovered them
feel good haus time
i always go into a new tessela release with a healthy dose of skepticism because of all the hype that's surrounded him since nancy's pantry but he's turning out to be the real deal. bass presence is unreal on a couple of those, unless they're cheating on digis and just stereo-ing things like happa did.
finna cop these.
Music that's at a house bpm but more darker, repetitive and techy basically - pretty poor way to sum it up but yeah it's more of a label of a sound as opposed to a particular genre.
Lots of minimal and deep house goes hand in hand with tech house
These are some tunes you will probably here some European DJ drop in a club that people would call 'tech house'
It's Ibiza after party music
>first time doing ket
>no idea what i was doing
>did a fat line in club toilets
>didn't feel anything for about a minute
>suddenly ceiling starts caving in on me
>whole memory of night suddenly disappears
>come round in about 2 hours lying down outside the club with some girl shouting down my ear asking my name and if i needed to go to hospital
apparently i threw up over the bar and i was lying down in the middle of the dancefloor and people had to carry me out. i still get embarrassed thinking about it even though i have no recollection, i must have looked like a complete clown, it was in some shit student club as well
i was with this girl beforehand as well and it completely fucked up my whole night
I'm gonna be the coolest kid in school next lunchtime
one important thing I learnt is when you practise on your own things can sound a lot different. there's a lot of ambience and noise in a club, and often with a mix that sounds jarring (in the way one track ends) on your own isn't noticeable to a bunch of people dancing
this is import to think about if you are mixing in a track and the last ones bass has been cut off, and you just keep filtering of the low end but it still doesn't seem like you can 'get rid' off a track effectively, sometimes you just have to go for it and whack on the next one, structure is everything, and a conservative amount of echo helps out with this to (especially with vocals)
>mfw people tag 12"s as track1/track2 instead of track1 / track2
SLOWED DOWN FUNK VOL 2: HATE IS BENEATH ME
hey i only liked that one track of VOL 1 .
where it goes.
WHATS YO HOOD LIKE. IS IT RUFF. IS... IS IS IT TUFF. HELL YEAH HELL YEAAAAH
is there anything like that on vol 2?
that shit had me bumpin.
bring me back to the thuggin dayz
doesnt sound much, if anything like pearson sound tbh. only similarity i can hear is the 808s and PS moved away from that sound a long while back now, before the DJ harlow release. where did you hear this?
>tfw no german master race
new workshop material at 25:30 in this mix
workshop 20 - lowtec. what an amazing tune. love the bass on that kick. and those rolling 808s snares... nice
Ah wait, just thought of a few more.
It's becoming painfully clear that I know very few German breaks producers. All the non-UK ones seem to be Dutch or Eastern European.
well secret corner is nice lp, the workhop and nonplus 12"s obviously, angstrom ep is a nice one. some may be offput by his off-kilter minimalistic stuff but to me it's the best, though he's made some nice 'classicist' house along the years too
oh and 10 strikes to 2001 is a great one too. ok sorry for the spam, here's some tunes to compensate:
look through ninjaaqua's shares in the archive.
you can tell where he's posted since he always includes the (LABEL###) before his shares
what's the most amount of people you've dj'd in front of? might be doing it at a family birthday next month with my brother, but once all the oldies have gone
>tfw playing pumping house and techno to your nan
Does anyone think so-deemed legacy genres are becoming more referential, deferential, and allusive because EDM has, so to speak, crowded out "the future," a sense of possibility and progression? You see this with the rise of anthology box-sets, "archive" collections, history-of-X mixes, and so on, which seem to be more and more numerous (see Boomkat, for instance). You see this with, arguably, the return (if not regression) to an interest in jungle, among /mu/tants, among those who took stock in the "jungle revival," among industrial-techno acts suddenly incorporating break-beats, among others.
are there any releases simmilar to:
Plug - Drum and Bass for Papa
I seriously love the album, but nothing get's close to it. Or anything that's like Plug.
