So, anyway, some /IDM/ meta here
What do you think of the new OP post? What would you change? I think it might attract some more people.
I gave myself a trip for this. If I'm not around and someone wants to make a new /IDM/ thread, they're welcome to.
I want to add an album to the OP that would serve as an introductory album for someone who wants to try the genre. I'm thinking Tri Repetae, SAW 85-92 or Amber.
I know there are people who know a lot more about IDM than me (I made the first /IDM/ trying to find new music, and it worked), so I want your suggestions.
Intricate Dance Music is nearly as bad as Intelligent Dance Music. I like Braindance. It's basically the same thing, but at least it's a bit tongue in cheek
yeah, just leave it at idm imo. honestly that's what i call it - i just pretend that the acronym doesn't stand for anything.
if people don't know what "idm" is or encompasses then they prob shouldn't even be posting in the thread anyway.
I'm not a big fan of the IO/plyPhon/Perlence triumvirate either but i don't see how you can't like Altibzz or Simmm or The Plc
Speaking of Mark Bell (RIP)
Probably not quite what you're looking for but Cursor Minor is a fantastic blend of synthpop/new wave and IDM. Some mags described him as Gary Numan meets Aphex Twin back in the day.
Definitely, I didn't think that he'd ever get back to actually making good shit instead of shitting out Filth clones and joke albums for the rest of his career but this looks like he's found what he needs in modular synth noodling and it's great.
