Electronic Music Exchange (House, DnB, Dubstep, etc.) - Page 286

post #4276 of 5796

Anyways, I don't want to start an objective arguments here, so I'll stop bickering about it here. 

 

Instead I'll post about Rene LaVice, my hometown homeboy on RAM Records. He's been killing lately. I see a lot of his DJing in Toronto, and he's got a great vibe. 

 

Anyways his debut LP Insidious is coming out Feb 11th, and in anticipation he's giving away Thorax for free.

To get back on topic RAM Records has been putting out some real quality stuff lately. Props to them.

+1

And their sublabel Program has some quality releases too. I'm at work otherwise I'd link some Loko, Breach, and Frankee - All on Program.

This first one is called "Friend No More" and it has some strange portions that kind of take you by surprise but I really like the rhythm and especially the progression from 2:20 - 3:15.

His other song is a remix and is probably one of the most unique I have ever heard. Tickles my ears :)

Can we get back to the "music exchange" function of this thread??   :(

 

I need someone elses opinion on these tracks..its driving me crazy.

For the disco junkies. Don't mind the video, it's a horrible edit of the original.

Anyone likes Arkasia? I don't even now exactly what genre it is but i do know that i like it.

post #4282 of 5796

Weird, I JUST removed Arkasia from my iPod

 

But I'm pretty sure they're like one of those 'hardcore' bands that started doing dubstep...

To be honest, my opinion on dubstep is biased, so I can't comment on the first track other than it's super glitchy though (a good thing for me) and I haven't heard anything like it......

 

I really like that Ocean Dub track. I LOVE ethno dubstep. So when it's got an ethnic vibe to it, I'm in. It's very well done. Me gusta

Another free Soular Order track. The follow up to 'Twenty Four' which was a track he released last year. It's Ambient stuff rather than Future Garage. Soooo good.

 

EDIT: And my LP of Nothing Else finally shipped. :D

Last night I went to a Touhou + Vocaloid rave. Two of my favorite things!  It was also unlimited drinks! O__O!!

The live stream is still up http://www.ustream.tv/user/SUKIMONO_NET

 

Forward to 01:28:40 <3 http://t.co/AICGzQrc

 

 

I was going to go to another Touhou event today, but I got home at 8am  and my leg kinda hurts from dancing.

Live stream right now! http://www.ustream.tv/channel/into-the-fantasy-第一章/theater

^ I also just got back form a rave. Kenny Ken + Crissy Criss in Toronto. Holllllllllyyy.

First time seeing Chrissy Criss live. This guy's something like 24 or 25, been spinning for more than half his life, and can SERIOUSLY rip it. I don't even know what to say after that. Three decks, and a Remix deck, and the best selection I've heard since Calyx and TeeBee's set.... and they had 2 mixers and 6 decks, four hands and two brains to work with, and Chrissy had HALF of that plus a remix controller. Kenny is over 50 years old and it shows in his DJing. But this set was a lot better than last year when I saw him though. Kenny is oldschool where Chrissy is young blood and had technology on his side (he rips a Remix Deck like I've never heard before) and an appreciation for a wider range of music, so his DJing is SO much better than Kenny's. 

 

I don't know if anyone else knows, but Kenny Ken is Chrissy Chriss' step father. Kenny is super black and Chrissy is super white though lol. It's a "WOAH REALLY!?" moment when I tell people this fact as I promote it as a father/step son duo and their headshots are on the flyer.

i was going to quote all the rest of the things you said, but in the spirit of not starting a format-fight, ill acknowledge i miss understood, and well leave it at that =]

Yeah, what I'm really against is the fact that places like iTunes (currently) don't give people even the option to buy lossless files. IMO people should have the freedom to decide for themselves what they are willing to pay for. Whether or not there's an audible difference between the lossy files and a CD-quality version is a matter for a separate discussion, but ultimately that's something that's up to each individual to decide for themselves.

 

I only buy releases that are not available anywhere else from iTunes, and since no one has the ability to buy the lossless version anywhere, there's not even a possibility to compare those releases to their lossless counterparts.

 

In other news, Beatport just cut their premium for upgrading to lossless by 25%.

 


 

Here's a track that's relatively straightforward and melodic and I can't help but like.

Hit the nail on the head there.

 

And yeah, that's pretty alright about the price cut, but bp is still so expensive, ESPECIALLY with new, exclusive releases.

I love Reso's style...lots of neurofunk in his mixes! Pretty great!
