we have an irc channel! if you like electronic music then come join the fun in #electronic on irc.synirc.com


Howdy everyone, it's time for a new thread! This thread is for discussing all the various forums of electronic house music and related genres, such as: House, Electro, Electrohouse, Synthpop, Electropop, French House, Fidget House, Italo nu Disco, Discohouse, bloghouse bangers and much much more. What this thread is not for is: Trance, Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Industrial, as they all have their own threads.

So you may be wondering, what exactly is house music? Well the name is up for debate as to the exact orgins of it, but all house music is characterized by an often simple 4/4 time signature with a bass drum and kick present throughout the entire track. It's that bass'n'kick that keeps us dancing. Oh and I forgot to mention, dancing is what this music is all about.



The first thing coming to your mind is probably everyone's favourite Daft Punk. They were one of the main people in France in the late 90s and early 00s to bring commercial house music to North America. You and your dog should already be a fan of the fantastic robot duo, but there is so much more.

If you are familiar with Daft Punk, chances are you are familiar with the following:

Justice

You've heard their 2007 masterstroke that is Cross, but you may not have known that they did the score for Dior Homme's 2009 Spring fashion show titled Planispheré.


But enough of Daft Punk and Justice, we've all heard them over and over, what we want is bloghouse. Now bloghouse itself isn't really a genre, it's just the moniker used to describe where the track was discovered and first posted. You see, in the electrobloghousewhatever scene, normal distribution methods for artists are virtually non-existent unless you've got a real nice commercial record label behind your back, and a lot of these artists don't

So without further adieu here are some links to aide you in your searches for good sounding tunes (or 'choons' as they are known):

Now this brings us to the discussion part of the thread. This thread is for discussing and dissing new tracks that come out, reminscing of the tracks of yesteryear that made us dance so good, and for exposing those new to the genre to fun and danceable tracks.

Personally, I am a huge fan of french house and Italo nu disco, two genres to emerged from France and Italy around 1996. They feature cheesy sweeping synths and filters with wonderful beats and unbelievable drops, so I will share for you some of my favorites/reposts from other threads.



Fear of Tigers

subtle reminders: do not poo poo this thread up with retarded arguments like we did in the danger thread, it doesn't matter who likes or dislikes deadmau5 but keep him out of the thread because his lackluster trance is not welcome here. This is for talking and discussing the good tunes we love to dance to. No stupid bickering and godhelp Threatis if you poo poo up this thread I will have your head! also, talk about leaks but not where you got the leak, make sure if you post a track that it's legit, we dont want to have a problem on our hands. Also, this thread is not for discussing how cute or hot the electropop girls are, they're all good looking and that's the end of it! Also, please try and have content with your posts! don't just post a bunch of youtubes for us to listen to, give us a reason to hear it! I realize i did this in the OP but that's just a jumping off point!

This is not a youtube dumping thread, I repeat, this is not a youtube dumping thread. Keep it about the music and discussion and refrain from posting just a youtube link to your favourite song, or chances are you will get probated!

it's a new blog me and a friend started. He's more into the older style of EDM (DnB, Breaks, Trance, etc.) while I'm more all-over-the-place party music kinda dude, so hopefully you'll find some awesome stuff there. Also: all our stuff is cleared to post, so go nuts. We keep it on the level.

FAKE BLOOD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujYPvPhGwh0 Miike Snow - Animal (Fake Blood remix)

I was a little weary of this remix at first, because the Fred Falke Remix had captured my heart for the song, but it grew on me and now I can't stop playing it.


And yeah I usually tune in to Kissy Sellout's show and picked up his album. I found that his album had a lot of fodder tracks to it but they are all delightfully bangin'. I was actually surprised when Kissy played a track from Leonardus, a rather unknown but gaining in popularity french-filter-house producer from Holland who makes some of the best filter house I have heard since the Montmarte days. As far as I'm concerned disco is no where near dead, and Leonardus has revived it: Leonardus - Smile

thanks for doing a new OP man, that last one was getting tired. house drum programming is a lot about the snare on the offbeats, a lot of times the snare will drive the song harder than the kick does. i dont think youre talking about the orchestra bass drum which would be really unusual, otherwise its the same thing as a kick

Leonardus

I can't stop raving about Leonardus, all his tracks are solid groovy filter house and hes heading in great places. His Heartbreaker EP with Quinten 909 is even funkier and blends house with some new wave electro flair. Wish I could give you guys an advance listen.

In other house news, Paul is french(what a surprise!) and produces awesome french house that makes me want to dance all night. All of his stuff is amazing and I need more of it to live.

I'm sure everyone in here knows this guy but Vitalic released his second album this year which was exciting because it came out of nowhere (for me at least, I'm not too connected anymore) and I loved his 2005 debut 'OK Cowboy'.

Here's my favorite track from that album, Repair Machines.

New one is called Flashmob and here's the title track.

Jan 5, 2007
Say, Halo my Quake 3 in Bungie for Half-Life 2!

Here are some of my favourite artists/bands/producers/whatever that haven't been mentioned yet:

Bestrack - This French guy has been making songs for his MySpace for a little while under the name Bestrack Productions, and he recently released an EP. He does some really awesome funky/disco/electro remixes, in particular this one made for a remix contest (which he won) for DatA's amazing track Rapture: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtPvrHl8jWo

Chromeo - It's a band of a couple guys from Montreal (one of which is A-Trak's brother) who make some of the best funky, catchy retro tunes I've heard. They're noticably popular, and they have a whole bunch of releases. Maybe they belong in the Electro-Pop thread, but there are some sweet remixes of their tracks out there. Here's their song Bonafied Lovin' remixed by the French producer Yuksek: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYAZoTCkkPI

Danger - The last thread started with posts about this guy. He's from France and mixes chiptunes, eighties movie-soundtrack music, and electro together to make something really cool. Here's his remix of Sebastien Tellier's song called Divine and link to the previous thread: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FwbsSdWh-U, http://forums.somethingawful.com/sh...hreadid=2711929

DatA - He's on the same label as Danger and makes French electro. I'm not sure how to describe his music without overusing the words "funky", "disco", "retro", and "electro", or comparing him with more popular French artists like Daft Punk and Justice. But it's really good! Here's a music video for one of the collaborations he did with Sebastian Grainger called One In A Million: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prSHsDIwNiw

Feed Me - Apparently it's an alias for a dubstep producer based in the UK, under which he uses his heavy, dirty synths to make some really awesome electro house. I really know much about him, but I know he has some sweet remixes and killer tracks, like this one called The Spell: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6Cxq4_RCEs

Felguk - I don't know much a lot this Brazilian producer-duo either, but I've loved every song I've heard by them. Also like Feed Me, their tracks seem to be more DJ-friendly, as opposed to the other bloghouse artists listed above. Check out their Daft Punk remix, which like their other stuff is glitchy and energetic and well-produced: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWlTt2quUwA

MSTRKRFT - Pronounced "mastercraft", these considerably well-known guys are from Toronto and have produced a ton of tracks in their unique electro style. Here's the song that their latest album, Fist Of God, was named after: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYf_TwXb6D4

Wolfgang Gartner - This is another alias for another veteran producer. I haven't heard much of his older stuff, but his recent tracks are really amazing. They're typically really chopped-up and heavy electro house with little melodic bits and great production value. Here's his latest track, Fire Power: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bt4H7S0Yc_0


And here are some more tunes I love that would probably fit in this thread:
The Bloody Beetroots - Have Mercy On Us http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSUDGB5VJgU
Boys Noize - Jeffer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=074opL6l3vw
DJ Mehdi - Signatune (Thomas Bangalter Edit) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sbTmLvL7fQ
Kapture - Regeneration http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hS4k8YXyBc
The Kills - Cheap And Cheerful (SebastiAn Remix) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1Z_KQ-G_xM
Tesla Boy - Electric Lady http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omaoZfQN5cc
Yuksek - So Down (featuring Chromeo) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKoQN9oT08k
Zombie Nation - Radio Controlled (Hey Today Remix) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztEXbZib8vs

Life would be simple in the forest except for Cyril Sneer. And his life would be simple except for The Raccoons.

Why was there a new thread created? Electro-pop and house/techno/synth are sufficiently differentiated to warrant seperate threads. We all know this is just going to turn into a house re-re-re-re-mix thread. As a fan of electro-pop, I'm really not interested in looking through page after page of MSTRKRFT and Chromeo mixes...

The whole reason for the electro-pop thread was that its a genre that tends to get completely overlooked in threads such as these.

Seeing Fake Blood, Foamo, A1 Bassline and Evilnine on friday and I cannot loving wait

Last friday I saw Buraka Som Sistema (who I guess you can classify as somewhat housey and I highly recommend to anyone) and Scratch Perverts. Ive seen scratch perverts a few times now and jack beats too both of whom drop a fair amount of house in their sets.

Had the pleasure of going to Creamfields in the summer which had possibly the best line up ever, http://www.creamfields.com/?page_id=3


edit: some youtubes

Buraka Som Sistema - IC19 (A1 Bassline Remix) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZ2WBKs0F1I (drops around the 2 minute mark)
Project Bassline - Drop the Pressure (Jack Beats remix) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7c_2vFFif8E (when this gets dropped people go loving mental, at the 1 minute mark is usually when it gets mixed in at and oh god when you're rolling its orgasmic)
Jack Beats - Get Down http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3fh-yZSWoU is such a dirty tune
and last but deffo not least, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBd4k4Vdiyc jack beats - ufo

yeah im on a bit of jack beats streak atm, i have seen scratch perverts/jack beats at least 4 times in the last two months though so i think its understandable

fucker stole my idea before I had a chance to implement it. Ever since I heard Justice's remix of Electric Feel, I thought it would be cool to have a live act like DJ Champion's but with horns instead of guitars. And now someone's doing just that! this rules!

Why was there a new thread created? Electro-pop and house/techno/synth are sufficiently differentiated to warrant seperate threads. We all know this is just going to turn into a house re-re-re-re-mix thread. As a fan of electro-pop, I'm really not interested in looking through page after page of MSTRKRFT and Chromeo mixes...

The whole reason for the electro-pop thread was that its a genre that tends to get completely overlooked in threads such as these.

No need to fret Cyril, I am definitely with you on the synth and electropop. Infact I have some for you right now! Joypop - Six To Six! Joypop is essentially unknown to pretty much everywhere and this is the only track they've made to date, but an EP is coming out soon.

I must remind everyone that this thread is for all sorts 4/4 electronic music (synth and electro pop definitely fall under this) so do not feel ashamed or disheartened to post your favourite (but please please please tell us why they are your favourite) tracks. This is not a Danger thread, plus, I love synth/electropop so much that I won't let these bloghouse bangers take control of the thread and ruin our fun.

Danger - Here's his remix of Sebastien Tellier's song called Divine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FwbsSdWh-U,

This is utterly fantastic. I liked Danger before, but this takes it to a new level of awesome.

The first thing coming to your mind is probably everyone's favourite Daft Punk. They were one of the main people in France in the late 90s and early 00s to bring commercial house music to North America. You and your dog should already be a fan of the fantastic robot duo, but there is so much more.
Daft Punk are probably the single most influential group in electronic music, perhaps tied with Aphex Twin or Kraftwerk. Anyway, they're amazing but NOT the originators of house music in the least bit. They also were not responsible for bringing commercial house music to America, as it was actually INVENTED here (in Chicago to be exact), predominantly by gay black people. What they did originate was the performance of original House music with live instrumentation and sequencers. With this setup, Daft Punk moved past the boring world of DJing into some actual semblance of musicianship. Instead of pressing buttons and simply cueing up parts of their songs, they set up the whole performance in such a way that they could improvise almost anything.

Anyone who's even marginally interested in how House and Techno formed should watch Pump Up The Volume, a BBC-made documentary about how dance music, and later the rave scene, began. It is very Brit-centric, because it was made by the BBC, but there's a lot of the documentary that has to do with the American scene as well.

fucker stole my idea before I had a chance to implement it. Ever since I heard Justice's remix of Electric Feel, I thought it would be cool to have a live act like DJ Champion's but with horns instead of guitars. And now someone's doing just that! this rules!
There are a couple people doing things like this, one of them being my band The Wonder Bars (no tracks up just yet, check out a teaser at http://soundcloud.com/tubbo), we got a 4-piece horn section as well as bass, guitar & piano. Osunlade does a similar thing sometimes, but not nearly as often as he DJs. A good third of house performers nowadays are putting together small ensembles (duo, trio or quartet) for intermittent live performances. Creating House live is incredibly fun, because with technology like MIDI controllers and Ableton Live it's both easy and cost-effective to improvise entire compositions or arrangements of previous composed work. In my case, I chose horn players from the jazz scene here in Philly to add an additional layer of unexpected improvisation to the music. I've seen other bands like Thievery Corp do stuff like that as well.


Oh by the way, you can thank Daft Punk for introducing the concept of live electronics to the House world.

Oh don't get me wrong man, I am well aware of the origins of house music from wonderful chi-town soul to the new york paradise garage disco sound (RIP Larry Levan). I should have specified that Daft Punk was one of the first in north america to bring major commercial success with french house music. I obviously just chose Daft Punk as a starting off point for new people getting in to the genre since Daft Punk is most often the first group people start with when they begin their foray in to house music. Aside from the electronic New Wave movement of the 80s there was not much in terms of electronic house music (that compared to the success of Daft Punk) in North America until Daft Punk came along and garnered major commercial success. No need for us to get passive aggressive and bickering over where house started or by who, it's all good music, let's enjoy it

But hey, I'm sure the most of us all extremely well versed in Daft Punk already, so enough about them until the Tron OST comes out.

Also the BBC docu you posted is great as well. There is documentary called Maestro which covers the origin of disco and later house music centered around the Paradise Garage and other clubs in the NY scene during the 70s and 80s. The first part is right here. Definitely recommended viewing for all.

That is true. In the past, a House producer would be lucky if he released 1 or 2 hit singles. Daft Punk has had at least 2 hits on every album they've ever released.

Sorry if it came off as passive-aggressive, I honestly had 3 hours of sleep and I was in class when I wrote that, so I'm not exactly in the right frame of mind right now. My intention was for people who were new to House to actually look back and listen to how it all began, because I think it allows you to develop an authentic and unique perspective on House and what it's supposed to be about. It also might answer questions that the common musical gormandizer would want to know, like "how did jazz, samba, doo-wop, funk, disco, soul, rock, traditional african/indian music, etc. all come together like that?", or "why is it so repetitive and WHY DOES THE drat KICK DRUM CHOKE THE WHOLE MIX?!?". Everything makes sense after learning the whole history of how it began.

I'm not watching this just to see how much they talk about New Order. No, not at all.

It was pretty nice in the late 90s when Daft Punk, Prodigy and Fatboy Slim were the biggest things out there. It looked like Electronic music might be the next big thing. Then BAM! Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys out of nowhere, and it killed it. And ever since then, it's been kid oriented bubblegum pop since.
