Electronic Music Exchange (House, DnB, Dubstep, etc.) - Page 396

post #5926 of 5939
Does anybody know a curent list or postings of electronic music releases that were mastered well? Because as an electro-junkie for several decades and an upcoming electronica musician / audiophile, the difference betwen poor & good mastering techniques becomes instantly noticeable - and I love to find the greatest mastered ones to go good with my ever-upgrading headphone setup.

A few that I already know off the bat who do great mastering are mostly popular artists but I'm sure you can recommend more:

- Bjork (downtempo / trip hop / IDM)
- recent Britney Spears & Madonna (yes I know this is technically "POP" but they have been incorporating NUMEROUS elements of electronic music production and sampling for quite a while)
- Massive Attack (newer releases - downtempo / trip hop / big beat)
- Caribou (newer - house mostly)
- Karsten Pflum (IDM / electro)

Yosi Horikawa, Tipper, Huron and Liquid Stranger have amazing mastering through planar magnetic headphones anyway...each different in their own way...Huron has this kind of ultra-detail that seems to emerge from a vast black space....Horikawa has this immersive lush surround sound.

Pretty much anything by Infected Mushroom. BTs latest three or four albums sound amazing, especially his two experimental ones.

Phase90 - Infinitati (bandcamp)

 

I can't call myself a fan of many artists but would I have to name one of the few it's Stephen Hitchell aka Intrusion, CV313, Variant, Phase90, Soultek (not my thing). This guy is on another level and together with Rod Modell (DeepChord) owns the genre.

 

Interstellar goodness!

So I started listening to this about ~ 3 hours ago. Just over and over. I'm new to Autechre. Checked out a couple tracks in the past briefly but it was too off the wall for me. I'll definitely be looking into them more seriously now.

 

(buy the lossless version on Beep -- huge difference)

 

 

I don't really have the words to explain it. Best (laziest) way I can put it is to say it's like a purely audio version of this:

IMO Autechre were superb 1994 up until 2000, then it just got too beatless and pretentious....

ENV(itre) kind of reactivated their old sound with his spin on things...

Are you sure?

I mean, they certainly do go pretty far out left field from time to time, but that doesn't necessarily make them beat shy.

Here they are anno 2010, straight four to the floor:

There might be exceptions to their stuff, but yes.... I just totally lost interest in a duo that I used to listen to all the time after a point. Everything got 'too ahead if its time' IMO.

They were right there at the start with Warp and the AI series and the mini-explosion of IDM.
