Since the last one got deleted for whatever reason let's see if this one can survive the night: anyone out there?
What are you listening to? It's 2:00am and I've got Terekke - YYYYYYYYYY on. Chilling.
Yeah Damn is great, I just can't get enough of Amaze though. Next level vibes.
Looking forward to new stuff of his - YYYYYYYYY is going to be tough to top and whatever he does will probably disappoint a lot of people given the cult / instant classic status of YYYYYYYYY.
The fact that these threads never survive through the (Euro) night when the americans are most active tends to make people think that americans don't listen to music without guitars and banjos.
>inb4 we invented techno hurr durr
But the vast majority of Top 40 music is influenced by house music (or is hip-hop). So much so that most guitarfags and oldfags over here complain about the overabundance of " talentless computer music" on the radio every fucking day.
Do most Americans have good taste in bleeps or appreciate the history/culture? Hell no. But we ain't out here listening to Billy Bob sing about milking cows all day either.
wasn't feeling it tbh
LACR doesn't have much personality or defining characteristics per producer when it comes to their signature sounds
LIES has sort of the same problem, but not as bad
i still like both, but when a new releases pops up, it's usually a 70/30 chance it's worth keeping
>defining characteristics per producer
inclined to agree with that with regards skander - it was a particularly dull release
as for delroy edwards... he has a pretty recognisable sound and delivery and dj harlow definitely had their own characteristics, I though. can't really be bothered with the gene hunt though tbh, that was p boring.
it just sounds like his last few releases, but not as great
A Slab Of Being Held Captive was some real heady shit, what with all the seagulls and everything, maybe because I live in Brighton and he blatantly rinsed this place for field recordings before he left, it struck a weird almost nostalgic chord with me
still reckon his best is Piss Fell Out Like Sunlight, hit the perfect nerve between his transcendent ambient shit and his minimal knackered house beats
Sick, thanks - gonna check now.
Yeah, Piss Fell Out Light Sunlight is great - gave that one a spin not too long ago and it went down like a treat. Really enjoyed Masculinity is a Wonderful Thing.
Big up the Brighton mandem, I sees ya. Not listened to A Slab... I think it came out when he was releasing loads of stuff at the end of last year and I couldn't keep up. I'll have to give it a listen. Didn't realise he left Brighton too. Where is he now?
>Where is he now?
somewhere up north, huddersfield i think.
he got sick of it down here, don't blame him.
just gutted I missed him play down here, the last time he supported Yong Yong and I'm a fucking idiot for not looking out for it
Huddersfield is a dump. Didn't know he played with Yong Yong, wtf. Was that in Brighton? Would've made the trip. Seen him a couple of times in London and it was good fun both times.
>tfw one of the only murricans in these threads
>tfw one of the only murricans to post in these threads during those peak murrican hours
what do yall think
loved both this and the "distance" ep
Wow got banned for posting about drugs, in a thread for music enjoyed predominantly by people on drugs, I'm assuming that's why last night's thread got deleted.
It was obviously reported by some bitter yank cunt who's never been clubbing, and that's some fucked up moderation to ban for it.
I was in the thread yesterday asking for tunes I've missed in the past few months I've been holed up with depression for a set I'm playing on Friday.
I've decided to fuck off trying to come up with stuff that seems safe now, I just wanna play a fucking banging techno set.
Suggestions would be very much appreciated.
gna check out this new gobby tonite
Sure, I play that sorta shit, but I'm limited with what I can play because of the production values.
You still need a half decent mixdown for it to work out of club speakers. Doesn't have to be clean, just get the weight and volume right.
>add a track
>put a pink noise loop on that track
>crank up the pink noise until its a cunt hair under 0db
>solo each of your tracks with the pink noise (ie your drum track and the pink noise, simultaneously) and adjust the volume of the track until it doesn't clip/its just under 0db
>repeat this with each track. remember, to do one track at a time + pink noise
here is a helpful diagram explaining it
I got banned for asking something about Germany because it wasn't directly about music or musical instruments... even though it was about musical culture but whatever. Clearly an upset American is to blame.
simplicity isn't boring
that track is fucking boring. honestly you only like it because hurfyd uploaded it
this is simple dance music done well
that's all indietronica territory though, not bleep territory
qt female bleep producers are kind of few and far between but i guess you have nina kraviz, xosar, flava d (shes actually kind of a skank) and i can't think of any more that aren't just DJs and don't produce
to answer your question, yes it is just for club stuff
but the more you listen to it the more interesting you find it. it's not like listening to other forms of music, or even other forms of electronic music.
Ference is way better than Legowelt
It was more of a reaction image, but yeah, DBN releases are typically lekker m8 :O]
I've been trying to get into /bleep/ music for a while and found pic related while browsing RA yesterday. I love it and I want to hear more like it but i din't know enough about EDM to know what to search for, help?
we don't call it that 'round 'ere mate.
What you're after is house.
Browse the thread, look up more stuff by the same artists/on the same labels/remixes and collabs etc of the tunes you like.
Also, go clubbing or at the very least tune into Boiler Room/internet radio, these are tunes meant for DJ use.
you said this like three months ago and i'm still livid
i will actually bin you, come to the function / vatican shadow album release party at fabric london nov 22 and you're a dead man
I hate it when I take a break from making my shitty loops and end up listening to some no name cunts clips and they're fucking hot as fuck goddamn.
Music sucks I wish I'd gotten into something else.
mate she looks like a cross between a council estate hairdresser and a horse
i will pull her one day just to piss you off tho
plastic barbie or not, you've got 5-10 years tops before you're waking up next to this
lots of people say butters these days. i've never even been to croydon except for passing through on a train.
p temple is alright tbh, just not > all is all
i will come say hello at vatican shadow if you wish to discuss this further thouhg
yeah fair enough man, i can relate
i just googled it and can't find the even listing for some reason. not big on vatican shadow though, tbh. too much gimmick and pretty dull tunes, imo. will pop along though, why not?
fabric's great mainly because of the lineups
the soundsystems are fucking sick as well. loud, bassy but well balanced and you can still talk to the person next to you
the crowd at fabric is hit and miss but honestly if you can't ignore the crowds at nights you go to then you have an issue.
a lot of labels are vinyl only. it's just the way the label owners want it done
nah but i caught him perform as prurient once. it was seriously intense, he becomes absolutely possessed
have you ever been in a gym and some guy is lifting enormous weights, is in the middle of a rep and his face is completely contorted and red, welling up with tears and looks like he's going to tear someone apart? was like that but for 70 minutes
i was frightened anon
no this is exactly my issue. i want to have the proper digital rather than a vinyl rip and it's annoying not knowing whether or not there will be a proper digital with TTT because it seems inconsistent in that sense.
it was a bit gay, tbh. Part of what helped underground electronic music to survive so well for 20+ years is its acceptance of people. Most techno clubs in Europe are about 30% gay, 20% bi, and 50% straight.
Talking about Rashad Becker in here with anon the other day and I was saying I wasn't mad for his release. Listened to it earlier for the first time in a while and I take my words back sonny jim.
yeah EDM implies the stupid big house trance and "house" thats popular now. Just call it electronic music or bleeps for 4chan. In the end genre names like techno and house are pretty important but you usually have to go to several club events to appreciate what the difference is in aesthetic.
I didn't think anyone would guess that was me from that.
>Waiting for "It's Footsie again, stop think twice take a look-see again, you don't war with Footsie again, bare hooks to your jaw from Footsie again"
>He does it
>YES WHERE IS THE MAYOR OF HOUNSLOW?!
Based on some of his tweets it sound like he might have MC'd on a Kurupt set, I must hear that.
This is surprisingly good. Reminds me of the tongue-in-cheek cheesiness of the old breakcore scene.
the only problem is that it's obviously carefully intended for people to take on face value as well as ironically.
How does /bleep/ feel about the Armand Van Helden remix of Sam Smith's "I'm Not the Only One"?
I'm not one for much Top 40, but Smith sounds like a House diva on this one and the remix is pretty top.
There's also a forthcoming Grant Nelson remix which I'm looking forward to hearing.
does anyone else shit their pants when taking mud and how can i avoid this.
go to sleep for the night. wake up with a big doody in my pants. it's fucking grim. it's only just starting happening to me recently and i feel indescribably fucking ashamed.
>dat corporate sponsorship
>dat aesthetic over substance
also after listening to the music for a bit, it's like a vision of the future of escapist ITV programming. Like a reinvention of 80s corporation worship. It's not "safe", I'll give it that, but it's got zero substance. It's what the X Factor would call "quirky" and "unique". It's actually giving me that same kinda feeling I ha when I heard "Another Girl" by Jacques Greene, ie that it's what should be the future of pop music and yet it's a future I would not participate in.
It sounds like money, and fair enough. The aesthetic just isn't aimed at me as a 25 year old male.
I'll give it some credit for straddling the border between innovation and safety so well though.
I guess it's knowingly phony at least, rather than trying so hard to be "authentic" in that L.I.E.S. way.
I'm currently exploring the genre and finding a few nice mixes. I think GFOTY, SOPHIE & AG Cook are dominating at the moment but it will be interesting to see how the genre will evolve.
Is anyone still rocking the 05-07 dubstep vibe? ive been getting into dmz n friends a lot lately and wonder if ive missed the boat or what, swamp 81s alright but yanno i came to rek the diskotek
aldona > paula temple... boss if you're still here chabudz is doing better than your dream girl
holy shit this is incredible
phaeleh i guess
can't really think of anyone else really. start watching a load of 'inspirational' nike adverts of people jogging and then try find out the name of the music from that or something. dunno
its the kinda of type of tune that has youtube channels dedicated to it, chill synthy washy stuff yeah, try that. Its pretty big right now, like that Tove Lo remix and M83, shouldnt be too difficult to find
the thing with this kind of music is that so much of it is almost entirely for listening to in clubs - so some tunes which are massive from the DJs/clubber's perspective are pretty obscure online or in any other context (especially if they are more old school)
Can anyone I.D this track??
Been searching for like a week now but all leads come up dry, wanna hear without the completely unnecessary filter
here's a hip hop beat i made that incorporates multiple time signatures in FL studio.
can i have some feedback?
Random tunes I like
And a picture I took that's supposed to represent who I am. Enjoy, bleep.
Anyone else buzzing for this south london crockery assault release? Tin is a fucking 10/10 Lakeland strike package imo, and this remix is almost as good
>download ableton trial
>my (first DAW)
oh god what have i done
any guides/tips to make this not so overwhelming for a complete newboi?
or was ableton a bad choice to start with?
meh, generally people in these threads in particular aren't a fan of this stuff. it's counter intuitive but the general population of /mu/ would be much better suited to helping you out
here's a track you might like. gives me a very slight justice vibe
check out the rest of the album if you like the tune, although this is the only track of its kind on there
Work on the Arrangement View Selector section
Watch a youtube videos
It will take a while, but honestly, Ableton is god-tier when it comes to workflow and simplicity. Everything it's just....intuitive
mate i have no idea. im not some lightweight either. i have done my fair share of mdma in big quantities and nothing like this has happened before. every night at the last festival i went to. lots of covert shit sneaking. fucking mortified. i mean, these were pills. shit pills that i just took lots of to try make them work and some standard mdma mixed in. maybe cunts have started putting laxatives in pills i dunno. either way i am glad i am home and no longer shitting myself.
Sometimes I try
yeh but u got to get whats going at a festival especially those last days.
innit i dont even understand, went for a shit like 3 times while conscious. still managed to shit myself while asleep. big one too. its fucking mad.
That was actually an enlightening read, and does make the PC Music thing make sense.
Makes me feel hella old and working-class though, even though I'm 25 and both my parents are university educated.
Much appreciated, i'm hoping I get to debut it on a dancefloor sometime soon.
I'm interested to find out if I can move a room with it, I used to make pretty cheesy house so I' still not sure how it's gonna go down.
when it kicks in in sounds sick as fuck, the first 8 bars of sample chops are very nice, but it turns a bit dodgy when the snare comes in properly. personally i would just loop that first 8 bars of ghost in the shell sample instead of those chops on the second 8 bars, if that makes sense.
also i don't rate the actual snare sound, im dying to hear a sidestick or something a bit snappier.
other than that it sounds very very nice, kick drum is fat and the drum programming is very good, i like it a lot
thanks for the honest feedback man. so your saying that the second 8 bar phrase had weak chops? ill try another sequence later on. is it just the chops in that second 8 bar phrase that you think is dodgy? is the chops throughout the rest of the song good?
thanks a lot i really appreciate the feedback
yea its just that part around 45 seconds sounds like shit, the rest is pretty good, i particularly like the part at 2:20. id repeat that bit again somewhere in the track and also the chops right at the start when the drums come in, those are the best parts
this got played too and they were making banter that it sounded like what the end of a decent free party sounds like. I never been to one but lmao if all the tops get squashed like that
i like the bit where the clap comes in, and also the chops on the GITS sample at that point. also id say don't be afraid to just loop some of the best bits for longer because other parts sound a bit all over the place
