Jesus I was listening to a new mix from Valeries blog today, and at around the 17 min mark I hear this song, that was straight hotness. I was like "WHAT THE HELL IS THIS???" I check the track listing and it is a god drat Janet Jackson instrumental. She can still bring the heat after all of these years. The song is poo poo, but the instrumental is great.

I dont want to rain on the parade, but this band sounds really generic to me. I tried to listen to the songs, because it got a lot of high marks from everyone in here, but it all sounds the same.

It sounds too much like something Justice would do, and when they throw the violin in, it just sounds out of place. The only one of those three that I like is the "feels good" song but thats because the vocals can work a little bit with the song. I dont know I must be missing something.

Ok since we are posting EM's here I seriously can not stop listening to Breakages EM that was played a couple weeks ago. I think it has to be a top 5 of the year. I dont listen to D&B either but this whole mix was amazing.

Hey whats the general consensus on Eric Prydz in here? I see a lot of talk about Swedish House Mafia but none on the guy who created the group. Aside from Pjanoo (god I hate that song) the Pryda stuff he has come out with and also his other alter ego cirez d has all been amazing stuff.
Anyway, I've been really getting into a lot of his older Live Dj Sets, they are really well done. The one he did last year at INOX in Toulouse was unbelievable. Here is a link for you guys to download it from, taken from his website if you guys haven't heard it I recommend giving it a shot.

Just go with the dress code and go out to Ruby. DJ Kue and I played there a couple of summers ago and the sound system is absolutely phenomenal, and probably one of the best club systems in the states.

Second this, I went there a couple months ago with a friend and the venue is completely awesome. Expensive as poo poo to get your drink on but the sound system is amazing. The sound travels so well, the DJ playing wasn't that good but I can only imagine if someone that was decent played they would rock it.

Ya I cant imagine what a DJ Set is like there, since the venue is so small. Especially for a DJ like Benassi, where it seems like he would thrive off a 50,000 plus stadium gig.

Also, the crowd could be really hit or miss. I'm predicting half UCSC students a third of underage kiddies, and round off the rest with gang bangers. Let us know how it goes though.

THAT'S why it's depressing.

Meh, I'll take a top 40 person like Calvin Harris over a top 40 person in the states. BTW isn't this the same argument for every genre of music?

They both sound good. I love that Digitalism took their time in making new music rather than feeling like they needed to churn out another album ASAP to stay popular (I'm looking at you, MSTRKRFT)

I completely agree. Can't wait for the EP (so are we talking like a 5 song EP?) to drop. I never understand how artists are afraid to take time to craft their sound in fear that their audience will forget about them. This isn't rap music where a new artist comes around every 6 months (im talking about coming up with original music) to take the spotlight.

I've been listening to the Netsky Essential mix for the last 7 days straight. Jesus for someone that doesn't listen to Drum and Bass at all, I mean I cant stand most of it (all of it) but this mix blows my mind. I assume that he is relatively new, but this guy will blow up in 2011 if he keeps this up. Am i just completely out of the loop and all the D&B fans know this already?

Also if you want to listen to the essential mix: http://www.mediafire.com/file/1d4dt..._2010_10_09.mp3

Question: How can you say you can't stand any drum and bass but have the Netsky essential mix 'blow your mind'? The mix is full of liquid dnb from all different types of label and artist for a start with only a few of his tracks. Have you got some incorrect preconceptions about dnb or something that make you think you hate it or what? His tracks personally i don't even think that are good and he's not the best artist on Hospital, which is full of talent.

When I said I couldn't stand DnB I just meant that as a very casual listener I didn't like any of the stuff I was hearing. It just sounded too generic and didn't do much for me. I guess when I heard a bunch of various styles/songs mashed up it sounded a lot better to me instead of just clicking and listening to a single track on youtube.

Ok I am just throwing this song up here even though it should be in the D&B thread. I feel that someone that is interested in both genres (Electronica/D&B) would be able to get into the song. Also if someone can point me in the right direction of music similar to this (D&B but with a vocal track) I would much appreciate it.

Im not a huge fan of the song, beat is pretty good. I will say though that if a DJ drops this song in any top 40 club it would blow up. Not saying that is a barometer of what is good or not, but this is clearly just some club banger and it succeeds at that. I hope you guys are anticipating more of this to come from all of your beloved electro Dj's, this is where the moneys at. Internet cred will only get you so far.

Sup, House thread.

I'm an Ableton musician, and I made a House-ish remix that i want to drop on y'all. Inspiration came from the Whitest Kid's U Know's "Old Folks Home" skit, check it out if you're unfamiliar

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJnZtcY5-Mk

If you listened to it, you know that the refrain (and really the whole thing) is just ripe for awesome rear end samples. Also I love WKUK and Trevor is hilarious. So I chopped the gently caress out of it and made this beat which may or may not be booty-bumpin'.

Check it out if you can, I'd love feedback on it.

Let's Go (Old Folks Home Remix) by Knave Rogue.

What the hell did I just listen to? The whole song I was like "And the beat is going to be dropping nowwwwwwwwwww.................oh wait....nowwwwwww, no? What the hell."

On a different note, I cannot stop listening to Above and Beyond's DJ Sets I love them all! They do an amazing job mixing the perfect songs together.

Here is the one they did at Ultra in Miami this year. I can't stop listening to it.

To continue my man love with Above and Beyond (btw who ever suggested Trance Around the World is a saint) they are playing in Santa Cruz,CA (my hometown) on May 26th. I'm pissed I cant go, but jesus the venue they are playing at is horrible. There are a couple SC goons that are in this thread so you can agree with me that for the Caliber of DJ's that are A&B the Civic Center is a horrible location. Not to mention that it is an All ages event.


Would've been awesome to see them perform though. Also I didn't realize until now how much Trance I listen to. I dont know if thats good or bad.

Where else could they play? The Catalyst is awful... I feel like the Civic Center is a pretty sweet venue to be honest, one of my favorite smaller ones to see electronic music. Luckily this is a trance show so all of the terrible Santa Cruz 14 year olds who live for Dubstep should be gone.

Ya, maybe I just grew up thinking of the Civic as a place where you played basketball on the weekends, rather than a place that would hold Trance concerts. I just can't imagine a ton of people rocking out on a basketball court that is at least 70 years old. Although the Smashing Pumpkins played there a couple years back and rocked it.

If anyone hasn't checked it out yet, Above & Beyond were this last weeks Essential Mix and they absolutely destroyed it. I apologize for turning into a A&B homer, but I highly highly recommend checking it out. This one has to be in the discussion of EM of the year.

Kinda late, but I needed some time to listen to this properly. At first I had a similar reaction to most people in this thread("we've waited for this?") but after a few more listens I grew to appreciate it more. It grows on you. Not Justice's best, but not at all bad.

I have a feeling this song is going to get remixed the gently caress out of. Just because the setup is just waiting for an awesome drop, but the original doesn't deliver. Some one needs to do this song justice (no pun intended).

Looking forward to Surkins USA album, although he is recycling a lot of old songs if his teaser sample is any indicator.

I was worried about clicking this and was pleasantly surprised when I did, glad Skrillex has been reigned in a bit on this track as the stuff he's done doesn't ruin it. Top track.

I might be REALLY off with my comparison, but I feel like dubstep is to electronic music as rap was to R&B in the 90's when the format was "R&B singer does her thing for about 2:30 minutes, throw in a quick 30-45 second rap verse and boom song is done". I mean it just sounds forced every time I hear a nice sounding electro song and then all of a sudden that WAMP WAMP WAMP WAMP sound for a quick second and then back to the nice melody to finish the song. It's just like whats the point?

Heres an example of a perfectly fine song that just feels like its throwing in some dub for the hell of it. Threw me off when I was listening to TATW last week.

Something off with that tempo, it would sound better if he speed it up just a little bit. Maybe not go so harsh with the Daft Punk sound.

Is there a thread for trance? I'm basically just looking for another weekly podcast to sing my teeth into. I listen to Above and Beyond's religiously and Gareth Emery sometimes. Is there one not on the main podcast circuit that you guys recommend?

No trance thread anymore which is a major bummer. My favorite podcast is The Global Warmup from Judge Jules--lots of sort of heavy stuff and hilarious puns.
If you haven't, check out Vonyc Sessions from Paul van Dyk--it's PVD so everyone's heard of him but none of my trance head friends listen to it. I listen to the podcast, not the radio show. You didn't mention a state of trance so on the off chance you don't listen to it there you go.
For more trancey trance you can't beat future sounds from Aly and Fila. Not really my thing but I've got a few friends who swear by it.
