At least start the thread with some content OP.
Boddika - Warehouse
I heard BenUFO play this over a funktion 1 system a while back and it was heavy.
Sorry for doing this but can you rec me some techno with intentional vinyl crackle samples? I remember hearing that kind of techno months ago and recent Abdulla Rashim release reminded me of it so bad.
Safe yh? Been on some Juke/Footwork thing for the last few days and managed to track down Ghettophiles.

I keep on hearing this deep house (as in what plebs call deep house nowadays) track everywhere but I can't find out its name at all.
Only way I can describe it is having this detuned/eroded yet clean mid range sound and I don't think it has any vocals.
Actually fuck it, I just recreated it as quick as I could in 2 minutes in Ableton. It really is a shitty attempt at it, but I don't have much time.
it's up on phonica and probably more
tbh i really couldn't care less. actress is somewhere between mediocre and 'ok' in my eyes. and putting a limited run record up like this with no samples is just another dick move from a massive dick.
Anyone have some similar stuff to this?
Ty in advance
i think it's a solid experimental album, but i'm far too into my actual dance music to really enjoy or appreciate something which hovers on the edge of dance music like this, without wanting more from it
>I honestly thought it was rubbish
this was the purpose of Ghettoville, to be like a junkies bag of rubbish, it means nothing to anyone else but to that one person it means the world
so no theres nothing wrong with you, you're an essential part to fufilling Ghettoville's artistic legacy
oh yea for the record AOTD so far and Actress is a genius
I thought it was excellent. Sure it's not really danceable in the same way as his previous work but the work on the textures and mood is great.
i really like it, on my AOTY list for sure.
Not at all. I've loved burial for a pretty long time and for oneohtrix point never I've only listened to a couple of EPs. I really like the majority of UK Bass music.
Also please keep your typical /mu/ shit out of these threads.
>oh yea for the record AOTD so far and Actress is a genius
i see people who say this kinda shit all the time, and it pisses me off. like really, he's just some guy in his bedroom producing some music on his computer, who has an inflated ego. it doesn't help that people feed this ego all the time with this kind of worshipping bullshit
>Shaking the Habitual
>GOAT experimental bleeps
One of the main styles of Ghettoville was minimalism, but there was always subtle changes and tweaks throughout. That's still there on Rap.
So what, he did a vaporwave track, he made one with the most attention to detail there's been so far
he is totally worthy of praise for what he's doing though
I don't understand how someone goes about intending to make a polarizing album and then suceeds so perfectly. He's just fucking with people, its like he wants people to hate it. But at the same time if you get Ghettoville theres no denying its an absolutely incredible record.
The fact that he intended to make a record that's beauty was hidden from so many people and pulled it off so well is a great artistic achievement imo
Why is 'bedroom producer' a criticism?
He has a studio in Hackney Wick but assuming one can't afford a studio where else is it going to be made? 99% of stuff in these threads is 'bedroom' - it makes no difference.
>But at the same time if you get Ghettoville theres no denying its an absolutely incredible record.
>if you get Ghettoville
>a record that's beauty was hidden from so many people
You're starting to sound like a wanker.
maybe but thats a slightly superficial reason to judge his music on.
theres so much attention to detail in his tracks i feel like people who knock him just dont fully pay attention to the nuances of the track, or are unable to for whatever reason.
No seriously, implying that beauty can be "hidden" from certain people is absolutely a wanky thing to say. It's as if you're implying the album is objectively good, and if you don't enjoy it then you just don't "get it". Which is bollocks.
The word hidden used in that context is simply referencing the fact that opinion on this album has been rigidly divided. I'm not implying objective anything, I don't believe in objectivity as a concept but clearly if one person can see beauty in something that others can't you could say it's beauty was hidden. Even if semantically the value is assigned to the beholder and not the object.
what you're implying is that actress specifically created the album with the intention of dividing opinion. this is the kind of hypothetical, dick-riding crap that inflates actress' ego and adds another level of chinstroke wankery onto his music which shouldn't have been there in the first place
why is it for children? not everything is as well made as everything else. it doesn't mean the other music isn't worth listening to. taste is subjective.
i think in some ways it does a disservice to artists and the work they put in to say scooter is as good an artist as, for example, actress because subjectivity.
>what you're implying is that actress specifically created the album with the intention of dividing opinion
Yes, that is what i'm implying because he explicitly stated that was his intention.
last two paragraphs
Well your implying that he only had those ideas as a reaction to the critical reception but just listening to the album and examining how it was presented suggests otherwise. Also your implying that he's not self aware enough to realize that a bunch of people would hate an album that sounded like that but whatever you want to say about Actress he is certainly self aware. Yea a bunch of critics panned it but also a bunch of critics loved it and more importantly a bunch of music fans loved it.
jesus christ, in no way is that SND track anywhere near as danceable as grime. that track is pretty much on fedora levels of non-danceable dance music. there is no conventional beat whatsoever in that tune
>no conventional beat
it's just a house beat with some quick drum edits, it's pretty conventional. but whatever if you think you can't dance to it. maybe you just have no sense of rhythm lol
over half of people who listen to grime are white
it's not that i can't feel the pulse. it's just that compared with absolutely everything posted in these threads, that track has no conventional beat. it's seriously fedora-core
where do people get the impression that grime was a no whites allowed scene? it's always been mixed, more black leaning but house was too. more to do with the demographics of the area than anything else.
why do americans always use 'british' instead of 'english'? do they think that the irish and scottish and welsh accents are the same as the english accent? wouldn't be surprised if they do lol fucking retards
well if you can feel a pulse surely that means it's danceable?
i dont think an unconventional beat means autism. your average person could not really consistently dance to footwork. the rhythms are weird as fuck. just because snd aren't flavour of the month doesn't mean you make out it's for fedoras. bit /mu/ tbh mate.
Yeah I'm kinda interested. I wish he'd release some of the old dubs that were floating around circa ~2010. I remember hearing this in a mix made by a future garage/2step producer called Janner years back and absolutely fell in love. There's only shitty quality rips online :(((
I know this is slowpoke as fuck, but I just listened to Reality Testing by Lone the other day and it bored me to tears.
What's the deal with making a boring-ass Flying Lotus/Madlib record? Galaxy Garden was fucking amazing, then he goes and records this snoozefest. What gives?
i just don't see how you could think that the SND track and any of the others you posted are anywhere even close to being on a similar level of danceability. you're just wrong
>easily. you massive pleb.
LOL fuck off. do what >>48315966 says and i'll admit you're right. in the meantime, stop posting actual dance music as a comparison
Am I in the right place here, when I want to talk about progressive trance?
If no, where should I go then?
[spoiler]don't be rude please[/spoiler]
Thanks, I'm somewhat new to this genre and I'm looking for similar stuff right now.
If anyone know's some stuff I absolutely "Have to listen to" I'd be glad to do it.
>flying lotus/madlib record
i say more of a dj premier/pete rock record
the drum patterns he employed are straight 90's east coast
i thought it was good but i guess i can see where you could say it was "boring"
Yea that lone record sucked, listen to the snippets of the new submerse album it sounds pretty amazing its similar to lone but good
havn't heard it might check it out still
welp, the new actress ep previews sound like utter shite, as expected. i'm sure the RAlads will lap it up though,
>muh "I can listen to his trax over and over again and hear new things each time... its just mental innit...hes on another level bruv...."
the sad thing is, I do think he has the potential to come up with something decent, he just constantly misses the mark with lazy production and an incessant need to stick to pleb-tier rhythms/structure.
Most of those releases aren't even available to purchase any more.
The economics graduate in me is pleased that you're helping create price signals, but the dance music fan is pissed of that you're probably gorging me on discogs.
/requesting a good, hard-hitting techno Boiler Room/mix/podcast/whatever, akin to Surgeon, Ben Klock, or even Pariah.
somebody a few months back posted this track from the early 80s calling it "early grime." the youtube video was a picture of a british guy standing next to an asian dude wearing glasses. can anyone help me out?
wtf dude? It was a relevant answer. ken ishii defined the sound of r&s records, and in turn, techno music in the mid to late 90s. you would have to be some kind of troll to try and say that it isn't a classic. it is a great record and i will always stand by that no matter what the blemers say.
there's nothing deep at all about actress or his music. absolutely no interesting composition techniques, and no production wizardry to speak of. he attempts to mask his ineptitude via ~lo-fi/minimal/"hazy"~ effects, but anyone with a clue can see right through it. his music is shallow, pretentious and unrewarding.
i will award him some points for his effective marketing and PR; the way he tricked even wire magazine into thinking he was worth discussing was admirable, however his decision to affiliate himself with zomby of all people is unfortunate.
please stop feeding his ego by listening to his music. go listen to anything by sasu ripatti instead; he already covered what actress attempts to create, 15 years ago.
sorry but its painfully obvious that youre new to dance music. youve never heard someone play maze or marble plexus on the system and rattled the fucking club, your whole understanding of dance music probably comes from the internet. good attempt at trying to be meta and against the grain but you need some training you fucking noob
think everyone's moved on since disclosure. i know this track is more nostalgic than disclosure's stuff but most people can't tell the difference. to 99% of the population this is just more of the same. can't see it getting imitated that much really
do what you want mate, i'm not gonna force you out of your comfort zone
>is ladgarage the next big thing?
lol, haven't seen this before
got this as well
don't have to be a #lad to enjoy a bit of ket though still
got ketty on thursday night after a night out. best alternative when theres no bud and youre on a comedown. a lot of fun
they are but that's kind of a given, considering technological restrictions they had 20+ years ago. youve just got to appreciate the significance of stuff like that. i've got a copy of quadrant dub, and although i really like listening to it half the reason i bought it is because of its legendary-ness
sound like a cunt saying that but there we are
i really hope that one fedora-toting individual has actually said this in the past and this isn't a made up pasta
if you just made this up now summer, then shame on you for knowing what a sanzetsu no jitsuzhi style stance is
ppl still do it today if its so easy u should do it dont u wanna be a techno legend?>>
cmon do it then
Oh we have a tough guy here huh....... *unsheathes my twin katanas* Well, let's see how tough you really are! *jumps into the air* TAAAAKE THIIIIIIIIIIIIS *spins around and slashes your face open* Not so tough now, huh????? *grabs you and throws you up* It's time to finish this little charade *holds my katanas above my head* YOU ARE FINIIIIISHEEEEEEEED!!!!!!!!!!! *jumps upwards so that you get impaled on my swords* Heh.... easy.....
*Looks up from under fedora*
"Does a Game Boy lie at the end of the road of the darkness?"
*Flips out cape, revealing a katana*
"Yo white boy I said gimme da Game Boy, dis ain't Chinatown"
"What this place is will no longer matter soon enough..."
*Begins to slowly unsheathe katana*
"For you will soon be in Hell, oh foolish primate."
*Prepares to perform the Suteki no Morenatsu slash*
"Cracka the fuck you doin', Imma fuck you up if-"
*In a flash of black light, teleport behind him, cape blowing in the wind*
*I tip my fedora and my eye glistens, and the black separates into thirteen pieces and showers the area with blood*
it's the same shit you plebs. there's no fucking ladgarage
This music is based on 90s organ house and garage - most tunes have pretty much the same vibe - either cheesy organ led vocal tracks for example, or bassline warpers.
Every producer who makes that music would have listened to shit like this when they were growing up
It's all just reinvention of this sound, and an awful one at that
lol ffs man i never said ladgarage was actually a genre. like you said it's just people making garage tunes in a way to appeal to a lot of people, because of the catchy vocal hooks and that
you have to admit though that the modern tunes do stand apart from the old stuff, and not just because of the year in which the tracks were made. theres a certain more polished feel to the new tracks, as well as more of a focus on actual lyrics written specifically for the track rather than sampled vocals which were more popular back in the 90s
what was that techno single release a couple months back which had like a mouse/rat-type character on the front? looked a bit like mickey mouse.
anyway the B side on that was literally just a 2-beat loop for 8 minutes. no changes, no nothing. literally just the same 2 beats for 8 minutes
reminder that if you don't smoke cutters with knock off zigzag red riz 8packs for a quid from wilkos and nasty filters you got for free handed out as a promotion ting at a festival you're not /bleep/
