>>53366025 >tfw electroclash is dead >tfw electronic dance music has turned into a pile of uninteresting shit for normies again >>53366835 Ask the Dust is a fucking masterwork, he didn't do anything interesting since tho. What is it with electronic artists dying after they put out an album? Nothing new or good from Gesaffelstein, nothing from Huoratron, SebastiAn is dead, Justice is shit...
>>53366935 Both Daft Punk and Justice did interesting shit when they started though. You're probably too young to understand the impact Daft Punk had at first, but Justice' first record was hard as fuck. >Lorn is quintessential cliche normals dance music Dropped the ball there tho, you should leave your cave more often.
>>53366962 He can only do the very specific SNES vs. 80s movie score type style though. I agree that he's incredibly good at that (or was), but he's never put out anything in another style or aesthetic, while both Mr. Oizo and Daft Punk had quite interesting shifts in style over time.
>>53366755 Every time I try to listen to them I just hear soulless wank. It just sounds like a bunch of electronic rippling shit. I feel like I could just be listening to RDJ and hearing it done better and in a way that makes sense. However, it obviously takes technical skill to do what they do but their music is just utterly uninteresting.
>>53366966 I've been on it before, I'm a huge fan. Even have a Flat Eric shirt and have watched all his movies. He's a talented as fuck director and musician, and he's also hilarious and interesting as a person.
>>53366989 Have you seen his new EP? It's completely fucking different.
>>53367235 Nigga I read that whole blog up and down already The thing is, the overall aesthetic of electro that these french artists went for got pretty much sucked up into the shitpile that is EDM, and I don't think a producer like Danger would stand out anymore nor would people care these days.
>>53367262 Yeah that's what I mean by the genre blowing up. MySpace fostered lots or rock and rap as he said and people who liked Electro had much less choices.
After it blowing up and MySpace dying you just see tens of thousands of up and coming "EDM" artists on SoundCloud making it hard to distinguish yourself no matter your style. As he said it's luck.
I do think you're pairing him up too much with other musicians though, even though he has a very Retro sound, it's a lot harder to find people in his style than say Kavinsky's style (Barretso, Redial, Lazerhawk).
>>53367305 True, the only other artists in that particular niche I've found are pretty unknown (I guess the artist 'she' qualifies, tho he's fallen off quite a bit lately). Hell, I'd go as far as to say that Lorn uses some similar instrumentations and melodies, if in a different context of rythm and structure.
>>53367334 Him and a very select amount of Redial tracks (though he just changed his style entirely), are the closest I've seen to doing what Franck does. I think that Danger is just really good at picking textures and also works very hard on detail. Songs like 88:88 still blow me away today.
I don't know anyone who says electronic when they mean techno, or house, or hip hop, or industrial, or trance, or musique concrete, or jungle, or synthpop, they all say techno, or house, or hip hop, or industrial, or trance, or musique concrete, or jungle, or synthpop except on here.
>>53367388 Some tracks that go in the same direction sound wise imo: autokratz - kick (KATFYR Remix) House de Racket - Oh yeah! (Barretso Remix) Some of Toxic Avenger's tracks, like Angst Two Uppermost's work like Futur or Action I'm pretty sure there was more, but these are the ones that I had close to Danger in terms of style, structure and synths and melodies used.
