How do I into electronic music? My starter playlist already has Cosmogramma, Richard D James Album, Syro, James Blake, The Knife and Homework on it what else can I add/you recommend? pic unrelated
im just saying, it's not that bad in terms of size but if you notice, her belly is protruding slightly and that really fucks up her already weak proportions.your whole body shouldn't shake like that when you slap your ass unless you've got a lot of unnecessary fat
>Offer to drive a friend 3 hours to see his sick mother in the hospital
>We're pretty close, and in the few years I've known him, he's gone from being completely disinterested in music to liking bands like New Order, Pavement, REM, and Echo and the Bunnymen, etc.
>Generally seems to have a pretty open mind to a lot of music, however, it was only recently that I was able to convince him that there was more to hip-hop than "thugs talking in auto-tune about being in the club"
>Anyway, so we get in the car and start driving and my ipod automatically syncs up to the stereo, playing what was on last (a playlist consisting mainly of Jungle Hits Volume 1 and 2 and a few tracks from Ragga in the Jungle and a couple other comps)
>Volume is at a medium level, loud enough to hear, but not so loud it's obnoxious
>2 minutes into the drive, my friend says "This music is weird" and I just sort of nod my head and focus on getting on the highway.
>After another 10 minutes or so, my friend says "Can we turn this crappy dubstep off?"
>I reply "Oh, do you not like it?"
>He laughs and says "No this shit is awful. Listen to this guy. He can't even sing at all. I don't think he's even singing in English!"
>proceeds to do a very poor, mocking imitation of Cutty Ranks, going "UGGGAHHH OHHHHH YEEAAAAAHHH ALLLAH AKBHARR-AAAA"
>I'm starting to get pretty irritated, but I just say "Fine, fine. You can put on something else"
>He unplugs my ipod, tosses it into the backseat haphazardly and plugs his phone in
>Says "Anon, that was a funny joke and all. Now, I'm going to play some REAL music for you."
>starts playing Bluegrass music at a loud volume
>I glance over at him; not a hint of irony whatsoever
>He starts bobbing his head and singing along to every word
>After an hour I ask if I can have a turn playing music, to which he replies "Yeah, nice try, anon. Not falling for that one again."
>mfw I am forced to listen to the Foggy Mountain Boys on full blast for 3 hours non-stop
try morgan geist, good entry stuff
also, they fucking took this great track off of YT, but this preview will give you the gist.
bumping with the based message from Dr Drum Beats Studios:
You can be inexperienced and still put out Billboard-quality beats that will make the girls want to shake it all night long.
When I first started using this software, I'd never created a beat before in my life but a couple hours later I played back my new beats and they blew my mind, I'd laid down a track that was better than some of the local DJs were pumping out at night.
And... that was my first day!
Everyone wants to lay down sick beats, but most of us have been led to believe that you have to be a producer with swagger and have a lot of talent.
You think the equipment is going to be too expensive or you'll have to spend years getting it right.
But the truth is, with Dr Drum helping you lay down the beats, it's easier than you'd EVER imagined.
Other DJs just want you to think it's harder than it is, so they seem like the ballers on the block but you could be setting up tracks that will blow them into the stratosphere!
Well it took me about an hour and a half, but I made a Jungle/Bluegrass/Folk music/Old timey twang song.
I tried to construct it out of like 3 different existing bluegrass/folk songs from the 1940s.
Oh and I fucking used Audacity to make it because Ableton was taking too long to torrent and FL Studio is shit.
This one I'll pretend is just "some obscure folk song I found" that will build into a jungle tune.
This one he'll think is just me playing my jungle music as usually, but, when the record drops, he'll get an earful of twing twang.
I know this feel so bad man....
It's every. fucking. time. i put on music people are like "hahah anon this music is so trippy can't we listen to something else" and it's like the most basic DnB goldie metalheadz shit, and then they proceed to put on some shitty stoner rap... you know... the one single they know from youtube and play indefinitely.
I swear i'm about to strangle some pleb asses sometimes.
and it's always the people that otherwise claim "they listen to a bit of everything"
It's gotten to the point where i'm like afraid to put on music when i'm with friends because they aren't patient enough to just at least listen all the way through one track of the music i play.
the airhorn tho
if you dropped this at the club... do i need to say it?
This is some pretty wild stuff. It's from a dude from Melbourne, Australia with a pretty sick analogue rig who basically just smokes bongs and eats ritalin all week with his cat and makes this extended acid techno trips. He calls it stream of consciousness techno, it's some wild stuff. I met the guy a couple of weeks ago, strange dude but very interesting, worth a listen.
hp is that you?
Does anyone listen to "Huerco S." here? I downloaded an album of theirs like 2 years ago from somewhere because I heard it was a Daniel Lopatin side project. I couldn't really find any info about it though. Colonial Patterns was a good album though.
so /bleep/ i just got given a microKORG by my uncle who works in a studio, and said he didn't need it since he had 2(?)
anyway i heard they're not that good but since i've got it and i've got logic i may as well hook it up and have a go
anyone got any tips? anyone who's had one of these synths before?
having fun with it atm, some pretty cool features on here. nice to be able to have full control over each sound and to be able to make your own from scratch
will probably be using this in some productions tbh, why not
Does it also happens to you when you really like two artists, and then you discover one day those are two aliases of a same guy?
Of course it is
This is now an HP AMA
this picture can't be real
Any producers in here know how you get this classic synth sound on point? I tried a fat saw + low pass but it doesn't sound quite right.
Here are some examples:
This looks like it might be fairly interesting.
Also a reminder that 6Blocc battered everyone in that Jungle Dubs thing that's going on now:
do you (or anyone else) know a website where you can download recent techno releases? just starting to get into it and compared to pretty much every other bleep genre there are barely links
if only they all looked like this to start with
when you fuckers said deep house, i wanted more shit like this
not so much pic related
so what is the link actually called, 2nd wave deep house?
>because the deep house on this chart is incredibly uninteresting
LOL ok mate
acquire a music taste and come back then. in the meantime i'm sure the local vest-wearing cap-toting stella-downing quiff-styling #LAD would be able to give some recommendations
that is mix is like that kinda stuff which bridges the gap between actual chart house music like secondcity and the underground. it's the kinda stuff that eats everything plays in his DJ sets. i dunno what to call it, it certainly isn't deep house in the traditional definition so i don't know why everyone started calling it that. either way most people here aren't a fan so you're better off getting some recs elsewhere
anyone know of a bleep album with a black and green cover of some forest or some shit with the name oscilloscope or isiloscope or some shit?
So I'm new to electronic and I can't find anything as good as Burial. I've gotten a lot of recs like Lorn, Machinedrum and Flying Lotus but none of them reaches the level of feels I get from Burial, am I fucked? Is there really nothing else like it? I'm not talking about sounding exactly like Burial, I'm rather looking for something that has a similar bleak "feeling" and is very atmospheric, while being relatively straightforward and not entirely ambient. I hope you guys can rec me something.
check out the rest of his label, hessle audio, particularly the earlier releases
these are considered dubstep, but these tunes in particular are very heavily leaning towards uk garage. grime and dubstep are 2 separate evolutions of uk garage. grime first appeared around 2001 and dubstep around 2003
typical dubstep (not like the hessle stuff above):
typical uk garage
grime is mainly designed for MCs in mind, for them to spit bars over the top. but instrumental grime without MCs necessary is made (see kahn & neek - percy that i posted above)
dubstep is made with a heavy emphasis on space and low frequencies, and is designed for "meditating on bass weight".
This is kind of what I meant before, I listen to it and it's like this is exactly what I'm searching for, but the problem is it sounds way too much like Burial, and in that case I'd rather listen to Burial. I'll give it a full listen though
This is way more interesting so far, listening to Wander/Wonder, definitely will download
irrelevant internet meme genre 2008-2011.
i guess submerse is good but at the end of the day anything decent to come out of that genre is just garage anyway it was such a stupid name.
"future garage" is a rather shit term applied to a style of modern house music that takes a lot of influences from uk garage. i don't really know much about it, only that it seems to be the most widely inappropriately-used label in dance music outside of maybe "deep house". either way i don't think it has much relevance in 2014

or four tet
anyone else went dmz last night? was pretty live, obviously. hard not to be when u got rc1 sound system in. why did truth play for so long? and why is coki so shit at mixing after all these years?

Mah boy LAS going in hard on the junglewar
Also dat Kahn dub was fire
I actually didn't dig the Kahn dub that much.
My favourites are 6Blocc, Slick Shoota and Om Unit's, and Epoch gets marks for using PJDN samples to make it sound like DJ Hype - Bad Man.
I thought it was pretty good. Not sure RCola has done much recently though.
