Does anyone have some recs good for listening through headphones on a moody night? burial type stuff, I know there are a few but i can think of any off the top of my head? I like an emphasis on the percussion too
>I know there are a few but i can think of any off the top of my head
So do we know who Marquis Hawkes is yet? There's been a lot of speculation, but I haven't heard anything compelling

Got a slight backlog to get through so things might change. Saw that there's a new Nuage album out, might be cool.
Any recommendations similar to this and Aquarius' single Dolphin Tune?
this guy is one of the most slept on producers in the game on right now, not necessarily for electro but more ~~vibey~~ techno in general, nice to see him posted over here
For me it is yeah.
Similar to Isotonik: http://pastebin.com/LjL1PwbF
Similar to Aquarius: http://pastebin.com/xiQpkcCL
m8 I listen to both Techstep and Neurofunk, they are practically two completely different genres.
is there a difference between "better" and something that you just prefer? I.e. is some lame and uninteresting breaks "better" (for you) than the music of someone who isn't using breaks but is clearly super highly skilled (i.e. kassem mosse or whoever). no b8, just curious.
Most of my lists are just personal opinions, I don't usually state outright that I think one thing is objectively better or worse than another thing.
I respect people who have skills as a producer but if I don't like the music, I tend not to care so much about how well it's produced. For example I think Shackleton is honestly one of a kind and is capable of stuff that the vast majority wouldn't be able to dream of. But if you ask me what I'd prefer to listen to on a regular basis I'd pick something like this more or less everytime: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivQB_xD7ytQ
It might also be the case that what you considering to be lame and uninteresting breaks I might consider to be alright in comparison to other music I've heard from that particular sub-genre of breakbeat.
I don't suppose anyone has the set where Tinchy Stryder spits
>Stryder man, watch how I'm darker man, no attention seeker man, they can't see me man, keep it ninja man, keep it ninja man
And where Ghetto's 'My mind works, like my nine works, load it up and spit raw fireworks, and I'm not ashamed that I came from the dirt, and I'm not ashamed I was raised in a church.'
They're two of their most famous bars and I cannot find where they first came from, the closest I can get is this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJOnEN12BMU
where do you usually download your tracks /bleep/
>inb4 I buy it
Now word of a lie, I listen to Eurobeat probably every other day on the way to work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgHu_WAyspI
In the late 90s, Jump Up. In the early 00s, UKG with MCs. In the mid to late 00sm Grime. In the late 00s, Brostep. And at that point my A-levels were over and I stated uni so I didn't really keep in touch with what chavs listened to because I barely saw any around anymore.
Maybe they all listen to Bassline and Donk now, who knows.
I liked both of them, but the list is for everything out this year. If I was to limit it to Juke/Footwork it would be:
(APCO 03)  Slick Shoota - Keep Bussin'
(ARM 002)  DJ Earl - Afrika Tek EP
(SBELLE001)  DJ Rashad - We On 1
(TRUE1046)  LiL JaBBa - GuLLY
(ZIQ347)  DJ Clent - Hyper Feet
CL Moons - 2014 - 1992
Deejay Earl - 2014 - AF 2.5-The Awakening
Traxman & Paisley Parks - 2014 - Far East EP
(DREDCV002)  Various - Dred Collective Vol. 2
(DREDLP01)  Machine Girl - WLFGRL
(FM001)  Various - WTF!
(ZIQ346)  Traxman - Da Mind Of Traxman Vol. 2
DJ Earl & Heavee - 2014 - Audio Fixx 2
DJ Manny - 2014 - Tek Files Vol. 1
DJ ROC - 2014 - Take Em Out The Circle
DJ Taye - 2014 - Overdose On TEKLIFE 2
Taso - 2014 - Teklife Till Tha Next Life Vol. 1
It's only just become apparent how little Juke/Footwork I actually listen to. Still have G.E.T.O. DJz, Inc - 2014 - Beyond The Mix Vol. 1 to listen to which might be good.
>It's only just become apparent how little Juke/Footwork I actually listen to
Replace "only just become" with 'always been' and "juke/footwork" with 'non-Jungle related' there mate
Heard the first two but forgot to include them. I thought I had that Philthtrax comp downloaded since the name seems familiar but apparently not, will need to have a listen.
This also sounds nice.
But I listen to more Drum & Bass than probably Jungle, Breakbeat Hardcore, UKG, Grime and Dubstep combined. Probably, cumulatively probably at least.
>recording a mix
>always lose concentration and fuck up after about 30 mins
>stop the recording
i've been practising on vinyl for 4 fucking years and i still can't mix without trainwrecking it at some point
>dubstep guy so dark and edgy
This is what dubstep really looks like
Similar question to this post, I've been listening to a lot of 90's techno like Ken Ishii and Takkyu Ishino, as well as attempting to produce some of my own. Anybody know of any similar artists?
Have you heard the remix of Post Rave?
I haven't seen it spammed anywhere, but I'm hardly ever on here.
It's really liked WLFGRL, very "next level" in the production. A few of his tracks (Out by 16, Ghosts) kinda gives me that Lone vibe with a harder edge.it's just some dude in upstate NY.
Have you listened to Spinscott? He does live MPC jungle juke stuff.
It used to be spammed so much on here that I thought it was some weird new /mu/-core. It was only when someone described it to me that I thought it might be something I'd like and I listened and thought it was quality. No one really mentions it anymore since it gets quite a negative knee jerk reaction from all the previous spamming it got.
I hadn't heard of Spinscott but that sounded great. I really need more of Jungle / Footwork (actual Jungle/Footwork that is), other than a few select tracks and Om Unit I don't even think I've heard a full EP of it.
Also on re-listening to it, I think the new DJ Roc album might be a contender for Footwork AOTY with Audio Fixx 2 and Overdose on TEKLIFE 2.
I remember the russian equivalent of 4chan having a huge and highly elitist drum and bass community that had a massive hateboner for anything IDM related. Aphex for d&b is perfect.
Dual of Fates is dope.
I've been trying to get into more Footwork/Juke and just alot of it (too me) just sounds like a record skipping, but there is some really good music too be had. I've found some really good stuff recently.
>Beach Club x Relic
That works, or Dillinja even High Contrast would work. But Aphex, don't get.
Not riding goldie, I haven't even listened to timeless all the way. I'm more into early 90's UK Hardcore/Jungle
>2 Bad Mice
>Lennie de Ice
>Implying Goldie isn't actually almost GOAT Tier
Fair enough, he wouldn't be anywhere with 4 Hero teaching him everything he knows, but his best stuff predates Timless by a few years.
Have you checked out Marc Mac/Manix newish album? It's really good. And Goldie recently teamed up with some Orchestra to play Timeless live, got give it up to him though from coming from being an foster kid with no money to being on top of the drum and bass world by 25.
It was my runner up AOTY last year.
(RIVETCD22DP)  Manix - Living in the Past:
>Breakbeat Hardcore, Jungle
I used to think Goldie was a bit overrated until I heard his pre-timeless stuff. And Metalheadz is obviously huge, and surprisingly still putting out really good stuff. Might end up as my label of the year this year.
some of the best DnB producers pre-RAM, your pic is the pinnacle of their work. turned to total dogshit after they got signed to RAM, don't even bother with their releases on there
I've heard some pretty high BPM Jungle without it sounding like Breakcore.
For Anatomy, they were godlike. For All or Nothing, they were shit.
It's one of the aspects of Digital's work I've always liked.
Pretty much except it's probably more "hey guys, I know you're both really well known and respected in the scene, but that Wilkinson kid has sold more of his soundcloud demos than your careers combined. So can you make more shit like his please, thanks. If anyone needs me I'll be mixing badly at live shows only playing D&B that was released after 2010."
Let's not go crazy now. But yeah they were great. It's a shame that Netsky ended up becoming famous and everyon on Hospital started copying his style of D&B. I knew things were beyond repair for all of Hospital when I saw this as a cover for one of his EPs.
hands in the air for one of the greatest dnb 12"s of all time though
both tunes still get dropped today and it's always great.
speaking of jungle/dnb
is there anyone else outside subtle audio/scientific wax/pinecone/paradox that is making beats like this today?
(trigger warning: rephlex)
>those dark pads
>those field recordings/samples ("JAMIE! LET GO! CUNT! FUCKIN' 'ELL! kek)
also i miss when basslines were just simple and deep like this
>that Wilkinson kid
god i hate that fucking faggot so much
>world of dnb tonight in moscow
>noisia, camo & krooked, phace, wilkinson are there
>"OMG I'M COMING JUST FOR WILKINSON BEST DNB PRODUCER TODAY HANDS DOWN"
not my favourites, but my wishlist.
i'm annoyed at how shit that new xosar is. i'm all up for ruff lo-fi bangers but there's something about that track of hers that sounds totally careless, as if she thinks she can get away with any old shit just because she's made it lo-fi. even worse that it's on opal tapes (though tbh opal tapes has been going down hill for a little while generally, but at least black opal was putting out quality stuff. not now though)
rant over sorry guys :) :) :) :)
>I really need more of Jungle / Footwork (actual Jungle/Footwork that is), other than a few select tracks and Om Unit I don't even think I've heard a full EP of it.
This is old and a compilation but may be relevant: https://soundcloud.com/pseudogeddon/sets/pseudogeddon-jungle-footwork
I feel the same way
Damn that looks good. Boomkat released their compilation which probably features the only correctly tagged Footwork / Jungle on their site.
Piano hardcore is the best thing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znTxEQsweqE
Happy hardcore was really good from 94-96
>being too hip for LIES
lmao mate, yeah they're popular/hype but there is some legit really good stuff on that label. hating stuff because it's "meme" is equally as bad as liking something because it's "meme". stop worrying and just enjoy what's good regardless as to who or how many people like it
since when is synth pop for bronies? isn't it just for toro y moi type california stoner hipsters or something? surely bronies are more IDM / break core kind of people?
don't understand the jewfro ambient one either tbh
also >implying noise fans are bondage models
not sure where to post this but where do you guys download your music? The music im looking for isn't on pirate bay and mediafire isnt like it was years ago. I haven't done this in a long time.
Found this recently.
Surprises me just how much Jungle/DnB/Hardcore was made back then, I keep stumbling upon great shit that somehow just fell under the rug.
>Surprises me just how much Jungle/DnB/Hardcore was made back then, I keep stumbling upon great shit that somehow just fell under the rug.
This is why I love going back and searching for old obscure house/breaks/garage/techno stuff. I also end up finding great tunes that are virtually unknown.
says the 1 who thinks drum and bass is irrelevant. what a mug mate fucking do one i am 1000x the boy you will ever be, the best around and no-one can dispute that i am fucking number one and you are just a dicksucking boyslut faggot you little fuckin fag bitch i'm fucking king mate you are absoloutely nothing, you got no money, no girls nothing no fucking hope pathetic
Yup, favorite I've found so far has to be Club Saturn, it's a Sega remix album Remarc is on the album. I'm sure no one is aware of it.
Been here on and off for years. Is there a meme or some tripfag drama I missed?
I do not understand the brony synthpop connection, like I said electroswing seems to be where it's at.

Does this belong on /bleep/?
Never been here before, but this was pretty good
People give Machine Girl a fuck ton of hate b/c of the viral marketing thing. But it's got some cool tracks. This recent Nightwave remix of Machine Girl's Galatea is good too.
Artful Dodger - It's All About The Stragglers (2000)
>2-step, UK Garage, R&B
Zed Bias - Sound of the Pirates (2000)
>2-step, UK Garage
Ed Case - Sound of the Pirates 2 (2001)
>2-step, UK Garage. Good songs, shame the mix isn't that good... there are also MCs here.
Big up yo imma for uploading these
what's /bleep/ listening to currently
i'm bored as heck so i'm just listening to the big apple records catalog straight through
Hate all you want, but I'll always have a special place for U2 in my heart. They were the first ones to get me interested in electronic music when I was a wee lad back in the early 90s.
Through 90s U2 remixes, I discovered Paul Oakenfold, Massive Attack, Roni Size, etc. and worked my way from there.
Compilation of the year by miles.
I've been in two minds about listening to this since I saw it was released. Still don't know if I should bother with it. I assume that DJ Phantasy is the same guy as this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKZvQig3Fkw
Definitely agree, every big track on Sound Murderer had a better version on the single releases.
I've let the breakbeat sound down as I am currently listening to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m5t5euCpqs
yeah, there's something really comforting about trance. everything's gonna be ok kinda vibes :) :) also makes me sad for parties i never went to though (i.e. i wish i was 10 years older so i could've been clubbing around 1999)
can only give you my word im afraid mate but ill get in contact with mark and ask when exactly he started it and get back to you.
based on the atmosphere of the night and the kind of things mark and dean were saying i imagine it was probably made the very next morning
I met him back in 2006 at a Kode9 gig in Brixton actually.
