Hold tight the bleep crew
big up the americans for killing the thread again.
here's one to get us going:
Check this shit out, top fucking percentage right here
can anyone rec any other producers with God-tier drum programming as Shackleton?
nigga got some mad shit going on. And his mixing/mastering is hhhhnnnnggggg

>hurrr durrr we didn't kill it
>Dutch (About this sound Nederlands (help·info)) is a West Germanic language
Producers adopting tumblr cool Germanic aliases
nah, my point still stands.
It's part of the aesthetic.
>muh germanic aliases (even though I am producer from Paraguay)
>muh black and white album covers
>muh senseless track names
>muh "harsh" sounds
i don't think gesloten cirkel's stuff even sounds 'harsh'
it's dark, coated in reverb and has a sort of slick, oily quality to it. lots of booming bass
actually sounds nothing like german techno to me
captcha: Dutch rsupsyc
It's a completely different aesthetic to the whole 'germanic techno' thing. The music is drastically different. Half the tracks on his album are electro hybrids, for god's sake. Even things like the structure of his tracks are different. And the production style is nothing like in the music you're referring to
because surely no one in their right mind would actually care about what a producer calls themselves
or even if for some bizarre, autistic reason they did care, surely it wouldn't hinder anyone's ability to look past it and just listen to the music like a normal person?
i just downloaded a ton of techno yesterday. found this. i definitely think it's worth a listen from everyone here in /bleep/ if you haven't heard it already.
Listen to Muslimgauze if you haven't already.
Ramadanman/Pearson sound has the sickest drums in the scene.
alright, here's the link i downloaded it from:
and here's the thread. there's a ton of really good techno and other forms of bleeps in there, all from this year:
i dunno what you mean by 'classic', i dunno where the cutoff point would be in terms of year
but as far as modern UK stuff like night slugs is concerned, i'd say these labels are a good bet
>livity sound / dnuos ytivil
>the trilogy tapes / hinge finger
>tectonic / cold recordings
>bandulu / peng! sound
>aquatic lab (not a UK label)
>sector 7 sounds
hope this is of use
cos i've got nothing better to do i'll give you an essential release from each label. not all of those labels are particularly amazing i just like them

please dont make me do any more shit lol im tired of this now
but hessle, livity sound deep medi keysound tempa all have compiled releases which would be a good start
check out artists of the tracks you like
follow up on the labels they had releases on etc etc
lsiten to their mixes, hunt tunes
it's a hard scene to get into, but it's rewarding as fuck when you find a tune
forgot my epic reaction file
also you can tell musicians that dont listen to other music because it sounds fucking downs syndrome
(not accusing anon of this because he's only not been listening for 2 weeks)
no bully pls
I've found myself 'subconsciously' 'borrowing' ideas from my fav producers
I'm not aiming to MUH SIGNATURE SOUND at this point but still, I want to work towards it. I've already made a lot of 'clone' bleeps in order to know what I'm doing
>I've found myself 'subconsciously' 'borrowing' ideas from my fav producers
I don't think there is much wrong with this as long as you put your own spin on it. Most of the time when you try to copy other people it comes out sounding like yourself anyway.
>no listening to stuff for 2 weeks isn't gonna help tbh
I've been producing for years. These 2 weeks are simply another period out of many similar (one year I spent, I shit you not, not listening music at all for an entire year. Not entirely for music production purposes). After I listened music for the first time after that period, it was AMAZING
Yeah I'm kind of loco en el coco and stupid
Agree with this, and to a point, it could be argued that everything is derivative of something else. Those tracks with "borrowed" elements were waay to close for comfort tho
i just watched all four episodes. was really impressed by it, usually bbc3 is shite. funny as fuck.
however was i the only one who felt sorry and sad for both grinder and the fat asian guy whenever they were making jokes about the cheating women.
glad you liked it mate
you been cheated on before or something fam? no point feeling sorry for chabuddy as he's essentially imprisoning aldona (two girls and one blody bucket). but yeah, can't help feel a bit sorry for grindah, i guess, even though he's a dick
plz rec me decent uk funky artists/tunes
not into crazy cousins or cheesy stuff like that but seasons gets me gassed in the dance like nothing else.
you mightve seen it but i posted this tune last night. banger and a half
it just sounds ableton preset-y to me is all fam
and non of what those preset sounds are doing is anything imaginative, to me. didn't catch my ear.
would enjoy in a club, no doubt. but at home with my headphones on it's about as tasty as cardboard
i'd go for an allen & heath xone 22
with a pair of 1210s/1200s
you can find a pair of 1210s on gumtree for as low as 400 quid sometimes
you can get the xone 22 off ebay for like 150
so all in all a pretty cheap setup
its unbelievably tempting to blow my student loan on some 1210s but reason says not to.
My collection is pretty much digital at the minute other than a few bits and bobs (got some ray kieth 12"s the other day for a fiver, well chuffed)
it's not like these guys cant think of something more chinstrokey. dance music aint that hard really. its that its not what they're aiming for. means to an end i.e crowd reaction.
as much as i like drexicya it just does not go off in the club.
Anyone listened to the new Daze EP on Lobster Theremin? Really enjoyed it. The 2nd track, Untitled, is really nice, and I've noticed a few people making lo-fi electro stuff like that recently, Randomer, Daze, Container, Pillars of Hermes....
>as much as i like drexicya it just does not go off in the club.
I can say with 100% confidence that this is not necessarily true.
I've dropped Wavejumper at house parties and had the room fucking avin it.
if you've got a digital collection then the most logical solution would be to buy 1210s and get serato or traktor, the interface costs like 100 quid but that's still cheaper than buying CDJs, plus you'll be more flexible when you come round to buying more records
but obvs you still cant afford that anyway
ive done this before but ill do it again quickly
basically ive been here for most of my life (aside from going uni in bristol) and i can tell you that for big name DJs, warehouse project is your best bet but it's very expensive and you need probably need drugs to forget that you're being herded about like sheep and that everyone around you is wearing low-cut vests and 1kg of fake tan. also names like ben ufo and pearson sound only play warehouse project-related nights because of shitty exclusivity contracts
soup kitchen is the best venue in general for very /bleep/-y stuff. saw pangaea there recently, floating points last week, trilogy tapes also a few weeks back. crowd is very stuck up though. selective hearing put on good nights in various venues like joshua brooks, another hipster club. they're putting on tessela b2b kowton b2b pariah next month. project 13 are also good
my favourite and most other peoples' favourite is hit & run, they put on nights for the more 'urban' genres like dnb, dubstep, grime, garage, jungle, etc. they get some big names (saw youngsta and icicle there a couple months back, for example) but they have a solid lineup of residents like dub phizix, chimpo, madam x, barely legal, and so on
theres plenty of decent stuff going on but licenses in manchester means generally nothing finishes later than 5, very occasionally 6 and usually 4 am.
the best thing about hit & run is how friendly it is. everyone's just there to have a good time and have a laugh
i've gone so much that im now on a first name basis with most of the residents and resident mcs lol
Antwerp Mansion deserves a mention, its my personal favorite Manchester club.
South is good occasionally as well.
Does anyone know anything about this new "hidden" nightclub?
yes, but that's only because warehouse project (at that point) was not running in 2014 (now it's at store street instead)
yes yes antwerp is easily my favourite. that's where hit & run is most of the time
hidden nightclub? care to elaborate? im curious
Nah, went to the first one though, can't actually remember who played though... I think Commodo, Acre and Alex Coulton were among them...
Antwerp is great, a proper little oddity.
Not been to South yet but then I'm not clubbing like I did a few years ago.
You don't perhaps mean 22NQ or whatever it's named now?
Add to that list Anthony Naples. Listening to his new Zipacon track on Trilogy Tapes right now and the title track has that kind of vibe.
More Problem is SUCH a banger, I can never get enough of those classic piano house riffs, this one would go off so well at peak time.
Anyone else heard/enjoyed this EP?
hmm kinda shit but the swamp one will be sick.
apart from the swamp gang, youngsta's there
also that room 2 is gonna be ridiculous lol bassline heaven
fucking dj q
cause and affect
time to get my wobble on
>I'm slightly pissed atm
Most electronic music is a little more enjoyable when pissed, but nothing is better than hip hop on a hangover, QB albums are the only things that make them even close to bearable
That and futureboogie were the only ones I found halfway interesting, though Just Jack Halloween is good fun no matter the lineup, and the residents are solid. No Hessle is genuinely upsetting, they still have a few nights to announce though I think so I'm staying hopeful
hessle have already announced their tour dates for autumn, i think them hitting up motion is fairly unlikely at this point
and i'm gonna miss just jack halloween since im going back to manchester for the weekend to go whp. four tet, floating points, champion, anthony naples et al
i only went to store street. gave up on WHP by the last couple of gigs there - it was too busy to even attempt to have a good time.
first one i went to was the four tet night in 2010:
our Tet [ Live ]
Caribou [ Live ]
dropped a massive bomb went i went through the door and had one of the best nights of my life tbh
what is the security there like? At victoria warehouse there were police and dogs after the death that happened.
Ah sad to hear that they ram everyone in but I am still looking forward to checking out a new venue.
I never went to the warehouse, I stopped going a couple of years after they started at Store Street. It's actually a decent venue, the sound is great and the layout leaves room either side of the main dancefloor to escape a crush. It's not too massive either, though that got to be a problem with oversold shows.
It's certainly better than the brewery, that place was cavernous. Terrible sound.
Police presence has been a given since the beginning.
I remember seeing Autechre at the brewery and the police went through the crowd in single-file.
Naturally they were then followed by a conga line of ravers. Was a fucking funny sight to behold.
back in 2010 / 2011 when i went the security wasn't too tough. you'd get patted down and that's about it. my gf at the time just put drugs in her bra and it was no issue. don't recall seeing any dogs or police (though there will have been the latter, for sure). it was all pretty chill if crazy busy by the end of 2011.
it will be the same at whatever venue, it's the same organisers obviously so they'll have the same presence
the dogs literally do not fucking work though. i went to 5 whps this season just gone and not once did the dogs sniff anything on me, even after 2 times where i got specifically pulled aside and sniffed up personally
is this going to be released with separate tracks or no?
I've wanted to go to WHP because let's face it, the lineups are ridiculous, but something about its size turns me off. DnB/Dubstep nights can be good at packed venues but for the softer side of /bleep/ it seems a bit too much to be comfortable.
sort me out cuz
One thing that annoys me about Huh is it has a soft ringing that sounds exactly like my home phone going off in the background, so I'm constantly taking off my headphones to check nobody's calling
I've never joined a bleep thread before, this is the first time I've heard something like this. lurking/scrolling/bookmarking begins now
i don't know why i bought that record - it's shit
more stuff like this please rohan
>i don't know why i bought that record
You saw Randomer and you saw L.I.E.S. and your hype organelles got overloaded.
Same thing's gonna happen with HES027, which I can promise you will also be shit when the dust settles.
sadly not the case, he looks like a posh version of todd from breaking bad
would link you a picture but he seems to have gone more anonymous on his facebook page since his tracks have started getting exposure
>hessle has next level quality control though
I know, I'm a huge Hessle fan but Not Stochastic is horrible imo
That second track is okay but a bit bland to be honest, it would make up on the weakest Hessle releases.
His Dnuos Ytivil shit sounds great though, so I'm not shitting on the guy.
Mad props for getting Livity and Hessle to put out your first releases, that's insta-cred, just need to get something on Hemlock or NonPlus and you'll be an industry darling
so this Bruce guy
how did he get about to having his first releases on hessle/livity?
in all honesty i haven't heaerd the tracks yet, but i've been monitoring the hype
is it actual GOAT-tier tunes or is he sucking ben's dick on the dl?
two pints was fucking dreadful mate, set the template for every other brainless BB3 sitcom/sketch show to come
thank fuck we're living in PJDN times
I fucking love you pal
>is it actual GOAT-tier tunes
The time you spend waiting for someone to respond you could just listen to them...
>how did he get about to having his first releases on hessle/livity?
He's a jammy cunt, obviously well connected
He's from Bristol I'm guessing he got chummy with Peverelist and Kowton since it's a close scene, who passed on some of his shit to the Hessle kids
>two pints was fucking dreadful mate
I don't know whether it's just because I grew up with it but I've always had a lot of time for two pints even though it catches a lot of shit; I can put it on in the background and laugh while surfing 4chan, whereas something more "cerebral" like Peep Show you actually have to pay some attention to
And it went on nearly as long as Friends, it must have had a fair few fans
>new Airhead on Hemlock
thank fuck for that, the Believe EP was dreck
he has potential
his first EPs and LP were great
but he seems to really want to be the new-old James Blake more than anything else atm
mate it's gonna be tear jerking bangers sung in a yorkshire accent. top stuff
any samples of this EP about yet? keen to hear it. i've got a soft spot for Airhead but the 1800 dinosaur EP was abysmal. it ruined my year
>tfw Dal Boy himself will die in your lifetime
what do we think of tune of the year then lads?
>any americans in?
nah just the mayor of hounslow fam
