As a complete outsider to drum and bass, what do fans of the genre think of this album
dont like pendulum in general, i havent heard that album but i suppose its not better than the stuff ive heard. dnb isnt really a album genre imo
ruffige kru > goldie
it's OK but nothing special really
just a more accessible variant of DnB
A song isn't inherently bad or good based on it's popularity. I like the /mu/ has more eccentric and interesting tastes but the degree to which people shit on anything that's enjoyed even a whiff of success (unless it's Kanye) is just fucking embarrassing and pretentious.
Music in general is fucking awful for being jam packed full of "you're not a real x unless you do y" type faggots.
Maybe you shouldn't make such retarded blanket assumptions then since most D&B/breaks fans will all praise Prodigy, Goldie, Roni Size and the Chemical Brothers who are all extremely popular. Pendulums problem is that their shite.
are there any good dnb labels currently releasing stuff that doesn't have the pendulum/noisia/nero sound btw? im not really up to date on that stuff... (:
what think of this?
i don't listen to the genre but i really dig this.
know about metalheadz obv, havent really listened to many of their new releases. will skim thru the catalog of those labels in search 4 some new jams :)
i like jungle more than dnb, so thank you. will give it a listen :3
anybody else loving this?
hold your colour is the only dnb album from pendulum. 3/10 though
immersion varies too much to call it single genre (id call it shit but i think its not genre and some people might feel offended). the only moment i enjoyed was first 30 seconds of Crush
and in silico was some kind of electronic rock and the only thing it has common with dnb is drum syncopation (though i enjoyed watching pirated copy of their brixton show [older one])
hospital records? it has been a fucking cancer to dnb for quite a while. all this liquid dnb shit? netsky? jesus, kick and snare are overcompressed in his tracks as fuck, wondering why i see his name no more in dnb scene
i miss the good ol' days https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duXJ_gy5wwk
theres plenty of nice jungle / dnb releases. heres my fave!
basically /mu/ is gonna hate drum n bass until a new pendulum release actually gets close cause /mu/ can't fucking help the fact that it secretly loves everything it's supposed to hate
didnt know good looking records were still kickin around! ingredients looks swell too, thanks.
the only track i like from netsky is iron heart.
the rest is some overcompressed clownstep that i doubt he actually did himself
if you dont want noisia/pendulum sound you could also try just goin through genres like drumfunk or liquid funk, or minimal (like random movement i guess or silent dust album)
also more labels i found in my library:
not sure about liquid v
also im 80% sure you will like this http://www.discogs.com/DJ-Marky-The-Master-Plan/release/1163204
checking my library, i found his fabriclive set which i havent listened to (downloaded all fabric mixes during what.cd freeleech). is that good as well? all those labels are new to me
havent listened to them to be honest, i dont know. gotta check them out
also forgot about soul recordings (marcus intalex label, he has nice stuff too) and samurai music. also theres a lot of VA compilations from various artists from various labels, like atmoshpere: deeper drum and bass or liquid drops (or maybe its greek label, cant really remember). id go this direction rather than looking at labels
i heard it somewhere before. damn id love to buy some music in moments like this but man i need money for booze
