back on topic

>>51606380
have you read this book yet /bleep/? if not, what is your excuse?

it's far from perfect but as far as rave history is concerned the only thing better than that book would probably be you experiencing the whole thing yourself at first hand

>>51606431
No, delete this. We don't need two threads at once.

In the process of reading it now. I wish it would tone back the glorification of ecstasy and other drugs, etc., but it's by far the most interesting and accurate history I've come across.
>>
>>51606736
but ecstasy is great
>>
>>51606658
no but there are more important things to do and i can enjoy the music at home
>>
>>51606757
I'm sure it is, but literally there is one chapter in which there are pages upon pages of Reynolds rambling on about how great it is. Not about how objectively important it was for rave music in the UK (which he does mention later), but just about how much he likes it. I don't give a shit about that.
>>
>>51606550
i own a a physical copy and have read it twice
imo it's too anglo-centric, and is extremely anti-intellectual/experimentalist - wish it focused less on populist dance music and more on generic innovation, experimentation, etc

this is also essential reading, love how in-depth it goes into disco
>>
>>51606792
why
>>
alri lads :^)
>>
>>51606906
>Fuck Dance, Let's Art
there's a whole chapter about the experimental kind of bleeps and a few wordings dedicated to people like you there
>>
>>51606380
Reynalds is a fucking hack in terms of his opinions and judgments but this is worth reading just for the level of detail.
>>
>>51606966
>Reynalds
lol american
>>
>>51606958
he spends more time on fucking gabber than experimental bleeps
he also moans about how bad post-AI warp is
he spends fuck all on post-1st wave techno (one paltry chapter)
i understand discussion of the culture is important but the music, its stylistic innovations and the development of genre should come first
>>
>>51607117
well he doesn't deny that he's a biased ravehead

plus it's a history of rave as a scene and general rave music, not general electronica (or techno or dance music or popular electronic music, whatever you call it)

a history of electronica in general would end up a huge clusterfuck akin to scruffles' history of rock music book
>>
>>51607217
i'm just sore cause i couldn't give two shits about gabber or hardcore
someone write a history of techno book
>>
>>51607246
hardcore is good depending on the continent

us hardcore (techno underground but mostly dominated by twing twang), euro hardcore (gabber and whatnot), uk hardcore (breaks and all that)
>>
>>51607246
speaking of techno, anyone got an answer to >>51606425
>>
>>51607309
just listen to radio and go to nights. who the fuck listens to "comps" xD
>>
>>51607308
by hardcore i mostly meant uk breakbeat hardcore, which he spends a shit-ton of time talking about
>>
>>51607309
>>51606425
not a comp but

>>51607344
>which he spends a shit-ton of time talking about
deservedly at that if you ask me
>>
>>51607322
i just want a good overview of the genre and its history
>>
>>51607322
>actually going to clubs
shiggy
