Anybody here interested in forming a band/project for sovietwave, laborwave and overall leftist-inspired electronic music?


I'm not interested in tankie shit.


>tankie shit
>'overall leftist-inspired electronic music'
Are these tankies in the room with you right now?


Wats the best Dizzee track?


I 9nly know bassline junkie or whatever its called, so i pick that one


Definitely something off Boy in da Corner. Stop Dat is such a hard tune, but Jus' a Rascal has always been my fav, I think.


> Jus' a Rascal has always been my fav, I think.
I think it's mine too. Such a banger that gets in my head every time.



I think my favorite was the one with the horsey cops. I listen to boom bap rap, I don't listen to grime so probably fit my tastes more.


i've noticed that modern love songs, in the pop form focused on heterosexual monogamy and pseudo-religious oneness that's familiar today, are largely a historical occurrence after the 70s
is there a clear economic/cultural explanation for this?

Should I even bother getting nice equipment if I'm not a "music expert" whatever that means? And if so, what do you suggest?
I want to upgrade the shitty $10 PC speakers and generic headphones I've been using for the last decade but I have no idea where to go from there. Not even sure if I've got the ear for it.

I've got a pair of Sennheiser HD 206s. They've probably put out a similar pair in recent years which'll have a later model number. They come for around $70 to $80 iirc, but this pair will probably be more expensive now since I don't think they make this specific model no. anymore.

I'd go with a model like this with a long, thin cord - better for dancing around than thick, curly cords. Over-ear always.

Past $80 (or maybe $90 but I'm pretty sure inflation hasn't hit good headphones that hard yet) I wouldn't bother. Some audiophiles with more dollars than sense talk about buying headphones in the hundreds, but an $80 pair will give you everything you need.


for pc get low-end over the ear headphones that way you get great quality and won't damage your ears. doesn't really matter if you have the ears for it.

same thing for phone get over the ears


Fun fact: when you buy shitty speakers or shitty earphones or shitty audio components in general people tend to compensate for their terrible quality by turning the volume up.



Sennheiser wired headphones you can get for like $150 are really good and comfy. I use the HD975.


I'm tired of anglo shit period, post non-english language music (especially non-western) from other parts of the world.
All genres welcomed but I want to see their own takes on modern music instead of "world music" stuff which feels kind of paternalistic

And keep the jap stuff to a minimum


West bank rap

I've listened to it all, from the most pretentious, snobby, theoretically rich, classical, to underground subculture, folk, music for the "cultured", popular influential genres with developmental impact on the contemporary scene it's a decent experience but really doesn't feel as impactful.

Yet when I give a go to the most braindead flavor of the month Pop track I have the time of my life.

It almost feels like those Pop idols and Radio industry workers who mass produce these songs have figured something out that I have a hard time keeping a grasp upon. What is wrong with me? Am I legitimately retarded?

These few weeks ago, I honestly cannot believe I enjoyed some top of the chart K-pop songs more than the acclaimed symphonies of some big name classics. Was I filtered?


just listen to what you like, if you can't explain 'why' a genre is more 'cultured' than another then its just being pretentious which is worse than sincerely listening to the poppiest of pop music


i should also add, there is no reason to have to listen to the most idealized genre or music as your personal taste dictates whether you can get into it via pure aesthetic experience, suddenly knowing the history or theory wont change that.


>These few weeks ago, I honestly cannot believe I enjoyed some top of the chart K-pop songs more than the acclaimed symphonies of some big name classics.

I mean when I wanna hear EDM I don't put Scott Joplin on.

>I've listened to it all
How did you listen to it?
To enjoy many genres you need to focus on the seperate tones, loud/quiet dynamic and general structure of the songs.
I used to mindlessly listen to lots of electronic music, yet when I stumbled upon tangerine dream, it showed me there was more to music than athmosphere and melody. You could say I initially "forced" myself to like it, yet now I am able to genuinely enjoy it and venture into other genres.
Depending on what aspects you learn to focus on, pop music will either sound flat and repetitive (in the bad sense), or you might notice influences from less mainstream genres.

Any fans of spectralism around here? I've really liked Gerard Grisey and Iancu Dumitrescu for a while, but lately I've been getting into Tristan Murail and Horatiu Radulescu

forgot this one


you should post links to recordings of pieces you like, instead of just dumping names


What is slectralism, when you make shapes or drawings with sounds like Aphex Twin did.


I saw there were a lot of old school hip hop threads so it made me want to put up some of my music. This is some old stuff from years ago. No names because I'm actually not trying to promote my brand.

This is a song I recorded five years ago with a rapper from my neighborhood. Project fell through because of complications so I just have a handful of songs in various states of completion. Beats/recording/mixing all me.

I didn't make this beat. I believe he told me his nephew who died prematurely made this beat and other earlier recording he had. I think his nephew might've gotten shot.


Feel freee to post your stuff. What kind of music do you make anon?



Lord, it looks like a bunch of my posts got purged and I have zero clue why. I mostly post in /siberia/ so it's weird that this would happen.

I'll reiterate - all really good, 3rd best.

I mostly make some lo-fi quasi-country stuff with minimalistic percussion now (could just call it folk rock) 'cuz my last two bands were destroyed by COVID and mania respectively, but I'd kinda rather post the band shit. When there's a band to work with the material always leans more into deathrock with psych elements.


The playing sounds really good to me. I'm not sure what kind of microphone set up you are using with the drums, but I can't hardly hear the kick drum. I'd definitely play around with what kind of microphone you are using and/or try boosting the bass on the kick. The bass as well could stand being a little more bassier. Turn up that guitar too, I can barely hear it.

I'd probably turn down the delay effects alot. I think having it that loud with that long a delay could sound interesting in parts but having playing at that level throughout the whole song kind of smothers the instruments/drums/vocals. Manually turning up and down the delay for various parts would probably be the most optimal for a finished record, but for a live setting or if you just want an automatic way to cut through the delay with the instruments would be to duck them with the vocals or something.

Reminds me of some late 60s psych rock. Arthur Brown or Steppenwolf or something. The playing sounds really good and the vocalist too. Just those things I would do different with the mix.


>long a delay
Meant feedback. Be careful with that high of a feedback. Starts creating sonic mud at a certain point.
