Aus-bro, has your copy arrived yet?
listening to a week-old episode of my favorite radio show
tuesday nights are the best because of this
if I, uhh, you know, want to listen to a song regularly and have it in my itunes
yeah I wanna say it sounds like shit but I feel like someone's gonna yell IT'S SUPPOSED TO SOUND LIKE THAT. very unenjoyable.
yeaa it depends though! I'd say I buy like 40% or my music and DL the rest.
... because clearly the sound of the track is intentional. no way it it's "accidentally" pure mud. it's a stylistic thing. but a terrible one in my opinion.
>be data hoarder
>trying to download each and every track an artist has released
holy fuck is this a pain in the ass
trying to download all of skream's track now... this is hell
cause I enjoy it mates what do you want me to say? Don't worry tho, I hardly, if ever, post on /bleep/ threads, I won't contaminate your threads with my shit taste
That being said this is true for a lot of artists. Even with discogs and wikipedia it's really hard to get a list of an artists' complete discog
>tfw my ban finished today
Got banned for posting in a "bomb" thread on /pol/ (you can shitpost on /mu/, but you can't shitpost on /pol/, fucking shit)
It was just a 5 day ban, nothing too serious, also i had some homework to do, so the ban kinda "helped" me
tfw so many things they get me angry so many they get me mad
you've loved ALL of it? lol
im a bit of a lies fan tbh and also check their new shit but theyre like 80% totally forgettable shit
some of my favoruits of the last couple of years have been released on there tho
Listening to this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxMHjtUlhE8 reminiscing how Dark Sky used to be good, before they "disclosure'd" their sound...
This isn't really relevant to what you're saying but I heard he stopped djing mid-set once and announced that he wouldn't play another tune until somebody found him some cocaine.
yfw this ends up being the best house album released this year
dumb question here
but do "good" releases on vinyl always appreciate in value?
are they a good investment?
not that i'm buying to flip, but i'd hate to buy a record for like £15 or so only to sell it for £1 in a few years time
say shit like new joy o/boddika or any "good" release, will that always appreciate?
I guess not always, you really have to know your shit. A lot of releases that get too much hype have people flocking on to them just to flip and that ends up bringing the price down. (this has happened with a lot of JoyO/Boddika tracks)
Then theres tunes that have no hype and a small pressing that end up blowing up and selling for top €€
So buying records for the explicit purpose of getting paid is a pretty risky investment. Wouldn't recommend it unless you really want the tunes.
>are they a good investment
probably not, unless you think you can predict what will be trendy/popular in the future. especially compared to traditional financial investments.
>not that i'm buying to flip, but i'd hate to buy a record for like £15 or so only to sell it for £1 in a few years time
i wouldn't buy anything where this matters. and if you think you're going to get bored enough of the tunes that you'll eventually want to sell them in the future, chances are that everyone else is going to be bored of them too...
ok well i've been meaning to get into records
i actually own loefah - western for some reason lol. i'm sure that's worth a lot more than i paid for it
i wish i bought hackney parrot when it got released
is it worth buying records 2nd hand from facebook groups?
I guess I've never understood this because the only records I get are ones I really really want, so I wouldn't want to sell them. Maybe it makes more sense if spin them as a DJ and you want to unload things from 4 years ago that were just fluff to please the crowd.
listen to the tunes first, decide what they're worth to you, check discogs and stuff, and use that to make your decision. sheesh. i don't even own any records and i know this shit. use ur noggin m8.
because why not?
>nonplus shit gets like 500 copies and that's it, right?
um no, nonplus stuff all recently got a repress. pretty much nothing on that label is worth above like £12
Hackney parrot was repressed all to fuck, it's not worth shit. I think it's still in stock at Redeye.
Buying second hand I'd go with discogs because of the feedback system so you'll be less likely to get scammed or buy battered records.
top 5 for me. not in order
as far as i see it dubstep started when kode9 dropped archangel in brixton back in 2006. everyone in the room knew that something had happened... mala will talk about this day in depth and how it spurred him on to create music
maybe it got a lot bigger when archangel/untrue came about but there was already a movement in place with the specific name 'dubstep' with people like mala already putting out anti war dub and twisup and neverland before this.
nah mate sorry, i've been through this before on here. the place went nuts with an electric atmosphere...pinch was talking to coki in the smoking area about the birth of dubstep that night. everyone in the room was like "dubstep starts now"
Dubstep was going way before 2006... Maybe not in the same sort of way but it was definitely there.
It developed its own unique sound by 2004 tbh. Burial changed a lot of things but dubstep was going before then
youre just trying to appear academic for the sake of impressing other chinese cartoon fans on here. you don't know mate, you werent there. i was and i was talking to all those people that went on to be famous dubstep composers...2006 is when it started the stuff before 2006 is just what mala and pinch referred to as bassbin garage. what they wrote after hearing archangel is what they refer to as dubstep
lol i don't know what your definition of 'start' is but the fact that they were already using the term dubstep suggests that there was already something there? come on, stop being pedantic.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEAf_ZztCP0 <released in 2004
listen to this
n type, youngsta and sgt pokes talking about the birth of dubstep in the first 30 mins. they mention 2006 as being the year that it blew up. but they talk about the birth of the genre being way before that. i'm gonna take their word over yours.
here is a documentary released in 2006 where the term 'dubstep' is used numerous times. bear in mind most of this footage will have been gathered from before 2006
mala, loefah etc. feature in this documentary
mate ive been through all this before last time i mentioned the archangel-brixton 2006 night that dubstep was born...check the archives you will get all the answers you need from that thread
And what about youngsta and pokes? Lol... You're being presented here with loads of evidence from the horse's mouths that go directly against what you're saying. I don't doubt that something major changed when burial surfaced but the 'birth' of dubstep at that moment wasn't a literal thing, only figurative, because these same people have talked about the specific word 'dubstep' from way before 2006. You 'being there' doesn't change anything that these people are saying
lol mate thats you....i was there that night with my ears very much open...i saw dubstep get born from kode9s turntables
you need to take your fingers out of your ears and listen to what im saying, sorry. but im done arguing now. if you want to get the real facts i will be happy to answer any questions of that historical night but otherwise im just going to get back to my red stripe and funtcase
It's over, RAM Records is finished. Never again will we hear the likes of this.
Although to be fair, we are talking about the same lable that released Body Rock and nearly killed the scene and the same label that turned Chase & Status from this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ON_P0PsmLVI into this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AatJZCGkUj0.
heard it rinsed out too much, it's really sad actually...
a year ago it would have been my number 1 tune, but DJs these days just seem to play it without saving it for a special moment
that's definitely quite nice but there's always something a bit cringey at other people doing burial sounding stuff
volor flex stuff is unbearable even tho it's pretty well put together
Yeah, I agree Volor Flex is awful, the plagiarism is pretty blatant. This is however actually just Sven's usual sound with a more raw sample based twist on it. All his aliases have his trademarks in some way or another.
as Desolate again:
I don't think it's fair to accuse Sven of trying to ape Burial's sound, no matter how many casings hit the ground in the record. His natural sound has similarities anyway, though I think of his stuff as softer, dreamier views of the same urban nights Burial fills with harsher isolation and pain.
Oh that's not what I was trying to say. Rather that Sven always had a similar sound, although it developed convergently of Burial's. Personally I prefer Sven. Think he's capable of more variety in his work. Although I don't have to wait as long for his releases which helps too.
I think Myriam is the point where they really started to struggle... The album is on the other level of blandness though, totally forgettable. Same could be said about the new SBRTKT record, I suppose,
I like the title track but I think the rest of the record would be decidedly meh if it was released by anyone else but for Burial it's way too saccharine and kitschy. My favorite release is still Truant/Rough Sleeper
fuck chase and status, RAMs biggest sin is killing calyx and teebee. it's all about that pretty boy wilkinson now with his basic pleb tunes
here's the shitty single
I completely forgot that Calyx & Teebe released their second LP on RAM. Anatomy is literal GOAT tier D&B, All or Nothing was so bland and uninspired that I didn't even remember it existed until now.
I'm not even going to listen to that track. I still hear that Andy C's live shows are incredible but I doubt he's spinning any mid/late 90s stuff anymore. I caught a live stream of him DJing some BBC event a couple of years ago and it was just sad to watch.
What the fuck guys?
This track just made to Number 3 in the UK chart.
II love it and have been playing it a lot, but i never would have expected in a million years that it would've gotten this popular
anybody ever post on dogsonacid back in the good old days or are you all too young? by far the best dnb/bleep community out there despite having more shitposting than here
the fact that it was a proper forum in that everyone had users meant threads often turned into meaning arguments between each other. Kinda what made it so great, I miss youfoss constantly being labeled as a nutter and the whole VG ROOTS mystery..
how come in every /mu/ thread people say this without ever offering their taste? i can never tell the trolls from the simply elitist.
/tv/ and /lit/ are shitholes, but at least there people actually post what is better.
What's that electronic music podcast with the cool-looking black and yellow website and the short name?
I found it by reference in a minimalist techno guy version of the man at listening party monologue meme, like ">not keeping up with (podcast name)".
I tried finding it in my web history but my new antivirus program is automatically clearing it out every week.
>His personal favourite is the jungletrack Earth Portal Mix, it’s no coincidence that it was the last track made for Syro. For someone that always kept a distance to the drum & bass scene he keeps the elements of the style surprisingly close to him.
>‘That’s probably because I still haven’t made a decent drum & bass track’, says Richard, who spends hundreds of pounds on old school jungle 12-inches on Discogs every month. ‘I keep going until I don’t fuck up. For that last track I used the right hardware, really old samplers. I’m interested in the process: how did they make that back in the day? It’s really fucking hard to program anything on those old machines. Only a few used the AKAI S950 [the second professional sampler by AKAI from 1988] for a long time; not much later the S1000 appeared and that one was a lot easier to use. But from 1993 to 1994 the S950 was thé sampler and every good jungle record was made with that. I get a kick out of that, to completely dissect that machine, analyzing every sample until I know the machine through and through.’
>Which records do you return to when you need a shoulder to cry on? ‘I like simple tracks, like early Chicago house. Mr. Fingers for example. I love really basic music. I also like to listen to complex stuff, but because I’m so involved in that myself, I find myself looking for simplicity. I recently did a remix of a bleep track from 1991 in two hours, just for fun. That UK techno kind before it changed into jungle: real simple music. Early nineties techno is my favourite now.’
Listening to pic related.
Purchased all Ressort Imprint
is J Swift still around? if so, where does he post now?
also what about that other(? - it may have been J under a different name, I can't remember) who seemed to know a shit load about early prodigy/ae/afx production and would always go on and on about it?
i suddenly want a techstep revival
as in sure techstep eventually evolved into neurofunk but techstep is completely different from neurofunk. techstep is more stripped-down and mechanic while neurofunk is more aggressive (and with recent shit, more brostep-y)
future garage equivalent to techstep when?
been testing out entry level experimental music.

Whatever happened to DoA? I remember giving up on it when that server change happened and the forum slowed to a fucking crawl. And before that (or was it shortly after?) there was the virus/malware catastrophe that happened via the ads they used. Didn't one dog get fired for unknowingly infecting his workplace's network?
....And wasn't it pretty much abandoned from an admin standpoint? There were moderators, but what about the guy who actually owned it? Hadn't he disappeared for years and was assumed to not give a shit anymore? Kek.
Plus it seems like forums have been a dying breed for years; not many people use them. I remember when DoA was pretty much like /b/: refresh the front page and there was a fresh batch of threads to read. I can't think of many forums that are still like that these days - most 'young people' stick to twitter/Facebook for their online social shit, which is a shame IMO.
Deep house EP of the year so far /mu/?
well im waiting to see if Syro is going to be any good, FlyLo will most likely be great. But I'm going to have to say Objekt's debut LP will be the best if Aphex isn't really really good.
what do you guys think of Femme En Fourrure?
one of my fav songs this year, wish there was an instrumental though... incredible song live, gave me a shitload of shivers when I saw them a month ago
Rec some deep/future house that's actually a bit different. I heard this set the other day and it started off as your average #lad tier songs and ended off with some really aggressive/dark/actually really well produced songs without losing the deep/future house sound.
trying to turn the innoncent masses into aids ridden degenerate time bombs with your soul sucking music?
no advantages, they just feel nicer in your hands. lighter records are easier to DJ with, but the sound quality in very light records is worse than heavier records. however, this is only effective up to about 150g. above that it stops making a difference
i worded it badly. basically, REALLY light (thin) records aren't thick enough to hold the entire groove, so won't sound as good. regular weight vinyl is no different to 180 in that regard.
This is nuts, does anyone who made this tune?
I dled the single and there are two "Original mixes" on it, this one and the other one that everyone is familar with, with the Ghost in the Shell music video
This one is definitely better but I'm confused about its origins
is Arca /bleep/? if so, is anyone hyped for Xen?
