pic related arrived in the post today. sounding good
anyone attending today or tomorrow?
Should I get a Moog Werkstatt or an Arturia Microbrute? The Microbrute has loads more features and is an overall better deal but the Moog sounds fucking great but doesn't have midi
i'd actually say that trap is more liked in the underground than it ever was, now that it's blending in with grime. for example, some of the keysound gang like e.m.m.a and rabit play a lot of trap-flavoured tunes in their sets. i saw youngsta a couple months back and he played a pretty sick trappy tune near the end of his set. in the right situations, the right tunes can be pretty sick.
this all being said, people still dislike rustie. soz
To any Junglist, this was really good. From last year but only uploaded now: http://16aj.bandcamp.com/album/16ajs-lost-dubplates
rustie is more on the hip-hop side than dance really, plus his latest tunes have been wank so that's a bigger factor in him falling off.
nothing wrong with some trap influenced stuff, really liked this tune oneman played in a BR set
>dat footwork breakdown, dat chrono trigger sample
just recently found this one, has /mu/ heard this one? thoughts?
What kind of electronic music is this thread for? I've been trying to get into the genre lately and I've been listening to stuff like Aphex Twin, Boxcutter, Burial, BoC and The Orb. Is that stuff cool to discuss in this thread?
Sadly no brother, these threads are made to discuss "electronic music" that isn't discussed often on /mu/ (music that isn't indietronica, IDM, Contemporary Classical or Avant-teen stuff)
>you will never hear scribble for the first time again
huxley is such a fucking hack
just watched his video of making a track in 10 minutes and it occurred to me that thats how he makes all of his tracks, just simple drum presets, ripped off chord pattern, and a sample or two
fucking bald faggot
Even though it was free, this J Da Flex mix was banging.
completely and utterly depends on the track you're making. such an ignorant, sweeping statement to make
i'd like to see you try to succesfully make something as complex as this deep house tune then
or this techno tune
anyone can loop a drum pattern, add a bassline and some atmospherics. but it takes a good producers to actually make it sound good. do your homework please mate
Listening to this damn toon.
So I have a tr-8. I'm having trouble getting great rhythms out of it because I sux. I guess I'll just have to practice my piano/theory and keep on practicing.
Got aurora recently, been playing it through a couple of times. Despite what some people are saying about it, I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Any thoughts on it?
i thought it was a mess and i'm a bit of a ben frost fan boy. the lead synths on it are horrendous as well.
also people will tell you it's not /bleep/ technically.
also, op, if you're around: how does the vinyl version sound compared to the digis we've heard so far? the low end stereo trickery particularly - is that even there on wax?
Well opinions are mixed. I personally found it quite refreshing compared to some of the abient/noise music out there. It's not a release that will give you instant satisfaction and I would say that maybe half of the tracks by themselves aren't worth listening, just uneventful and weak. But overall, I really liked the atmosphere that was created and subsequently torn down only to be created again. Even if its not AOTY quality, its definitely worth a listen or two.
i'm p.bored these days so i might give it a shot for shits n giggles soon
it's all over rough 2 and slow dance.
comes in when the kicks hit.
could just be clever mid cuts around 150-200 but i cannae be asked checking with a visualiser.

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.
Take this if you don't have it already
ok i just had a listen. there's maybe slightly more bass presence in the left channel than the right channel, but i could just be listening too hard for something that isn't really there. however, the itunes sample is pretty much identical as far as i can tell. i think it's just the youtube/WIP version that had the stereo bass stuff going on
just get the break, chop into 8th notes. move them around. it's easy enough to get something hackney parrot like going. it's all about looping it from weird places in the bar.
s'not the sequencing i'm thinking of. more the way they sound. i half know how to get to there, just haven't been asked to sit there to make em sound right. just a lot of nicely controlled saturation and compression.
s'all good. i'll have a look at it in a daw once the digis hit funkysouls.
scene. yeh, it's in key n such so need to worry there. i'd personally take more of the mids out and just leave a really thin sounding guitar in there - that plectrum-on-strings sound. i don't make or hear these kinda tunes tho, so just go with ur gut on the mix.
I agree with you but you're implying that complex equals good with the tracks you posted.
4 club use only (for instance) is a something that's really simple but also very good and beyond the capabilities of idiot anon who thinks good dance music is easy to create
this is really really good
mixed better than most of them as well imo. the little interludes of about 30 seconds are genius in blending it
Seems Calyx & Teebe have a FabricLive, was not aware of this coming out.
any recommendations for ragga jungle
i like the sound of jamaicans yelling at me
Best place to start.
Street Tuff Records (http://www.discogs.com/label/3951-Street-Tuff-Records):
4 LPs of massive Jungle anthems. If you are an absolute beginner to the genre then start here.
(STRCD 1)  Various - Jungle Hits Volume 1:
(STRCD 2)  Various - Jungle Hits Volume 2:
(STRCD 3)  Various - Jungle Hits Volume 3:
(STRJCD 1)  Various - Ragga In The Jungle:
And then to follow up.
LPs on Jungle Fashion Records. Ragga Jungle featuring the vocal talents of Top Cat, General Levy, Cutty Ranks and Poison Chang.
(JFCD001)  Top Cat and General Levy - Rumble In The Jungle Volume One:
(JFCD002)  Cutty Ranks and Poison Chang - Rumble In The Jungle Volume Two:
And then everything on Congo Natty, Mad Dem Records, JungleXpeditions and the two mix CDs on Killa Records. The shit on Big Cat Records is also good.
And, you know, Remarc. Obviously.
one more thing
i'd definitely call myself somewhat of a jungle neophyte as well
any recs for regular jungle that isn't moving shadow, RAM, or metalheadz (i already have/am aware of the stuff on those labels)
ok i'll just list some of the stuff i have
most of the origin unknown stuff
most of photek's stuff
the first platinum breakz comp
some moving shadow singles (like terrorist for example)
deepest cut vol 1 by omni trio
self evident truth... t power
sound murderer by remarc
black secret technology
probably some other stuff i'm forgetting but i'm obviously no expert here
really just looking for a good foundation and knowledge of the classics, whenever i start with genres i pretty much always start with the classics and then move from there
thanks as well m8
First of all there's these.
Breakbeat Hardcore/Jungle: http://www.mediafire.com/?i7a1b7dvgdgdx
Breakbeat Hardcore/Jungle/Drum & Bass: https://mega.co.nz/#F!FQohzYYA!elH7Myk0DPE9We-2DFtYyg
From these I'd check out the following labels:
Brain Records: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5X0jJZaQM1U
Ganja Records: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAaa6SJP1mo
Tearin Vinyl (essential): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgDrr9fNA6U
Rewind Records: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jfcbk8BoAWs
Tom & Jerry (essential): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riuegh8HHCg
No U-Turn (essential): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3a5YvcPgqL0
There's a few things in there that started out as Breakbeat Hardcore and became Jungle over time, such as:
Lucky Spin Recordings: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HDWTQ1c71A
Dee Jay Recordings: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prFk3bLlLMU
Suburban Base Records (words cannot describe how massive this label is): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNGddllF7AA
Reinforced Records and 4 Hero's stuff is also phenomenal, classic and essential all at once (Golgie owes his career to them).
I could go on but that's probably enough for a start.
Pretty banging m8, slightly 2hard4me but I tend to only listen to that sort of shit when I'm in the mood for it.
It also made me realise I haven't listened to anything from Enzyme or it's sub-labels for like 3 years now.
I guessed as much.
I've also only just realised I've had Genosha One Seven Five downloaded for ages but never listened to any of it. I'll probably end up liking it more than the main label since it's more breakbeat oreinted.
i know you're trolling but also i know that you do that for small changes in tempo / tracks of roughly the same bpm
what i'm wondering is if djs do entire sets where its roughly in the same ball-park in terms of bpm or wether they play something at say 80bpm and then some stuff at 120bpm later in the set
Really depends on the style and the set time.
Some DJ's will play at 125-135 for 6 hours straight (see Ben Klock & Marcel Dettmann), and some others like Sven Vath or Laurent Garnier like to start their long sets at a slower pace.
it's just the same as placing any regular order tbh m8 except you get to choose when you get it delivered. redeye = best by a country mile
very late reply but no, i was implying that complex = hard to produce, not necessarily good. kassem mosse's untitled A1 on workshop 12 is incredibly simple with few elements to the track, but would be very hard to reproduce, and that's not just down to the fact that he uses a lot of hardware
What's the most expensive / valuable bleep record one could buy on Discogs?
Bleep-related: that Burial vs Massive Attack is the most expensive thing I've seen. Released 2011 with 1000 copies and the cheapest currently on sale is £190 and the most expensive is £396.71
This. Its fucking awesome
Terre Taemlitz = God-tier
some first presses of Basic Channel/Chain Reaction (even a lot of their second hand CD's) can go for $1000+ easy.
>that day when LIES001 is the most valuable record in existence
nope, even the first presses of basic channel stuff never go for more than like £50ish.
from what i've seen, valuable /bleep/ records tend to be cheaper than in most other types of music
however you do get a few exceptions
this AFX promo has 2 copies for sale for £1000 and £7000 from different sellers
Fine, I don't see any right now but I've seen them before.
And here is some of Chain Reaction's releases
