teengirl fantasy, miracles club, mi ami, 100% silk and the rise of HIPSTER HOUSE: S/D

selective c&p-ing from the bobbins thread:

I'm posting this here, rather than the NNF thread: 100% Silk Mix for Wow Magazine.

01. I Can Feel the Heat - MAGIC TOUCH
02. What?? - PHARAOHS
03. High Reflection - OCTO OCTA
04. Wet Devil - SFV ACID
05. Milk N Honey - SIR STEPHEN
06. Queens - ITAL
07. Shadow Disco - INNERGAZE
08. Kyrie Eleison - MARIA MINERVA
09. Trickle - CUTICLE
10. I - GILLETTE

Kind of wish it was actually beat-mixed, rather than crossfaded one track to another, but still offers a nice overview of the label.

have almost started a hipster house thread sooo many times cause i duno where to talk about 100% silk, miracles club, xander harris and all the other noise ppl that jumped on this trend

new mi ami stuff and the solo magic touch/ital releases are great if you have a tolerance for this type of thing

The funny thing is that 100% Silk et. al. most definitely give off this vibe of hipster something, but i'm not sure if it's more because of their outsidery status or the fact that their revivalism has that crucial sense of artifact-fetishism, or somehow those two things intertwining with each other, or...

But in this and several other senses they're basically 2011's IDIB, right?

i AM feeling stuff like ITAL but like delia & gavin or whatnot it doesn't really "work" in a techno / house set except in the loosest way

i think it is *related* to house and techno but distinct enough that it might deserve a different thread

this has been going on for a few years now, especially in the 20 jazz funk greats / altered zones sphere of influence, but it seems to be making some serious inroads on the west coast in the last year or so (tho i guess i can only speak to this wrt sf and portland): former noise artists and others with post-indie sensibilities picking up drum machines and taking a stab at house and techno. this stuff ranges from more primitive/diffuse experimentation like cuticle and the deeep, to 80s horror-sdtk influenced stuff like steve moore and xander harris, to acid house revivalism like miracles club and soft metals, to futuristic piano house cuts by ital, magic touch and octo octa.

100% silk is an offshoot of not not fun records, and both are based out of la, so i'm thinking it probably has some influence down there too. also oberlin seems to have something to do with all this, at least in the form of merok records / teengirl fantasy / blondes. and something about me wants to throw dc stuff like the l.i.e.s. and future times labels into all this, but that stuff seems to be accepted as more 'legit' within the dance community for some reason? i definitely agree with what tim was talking about, how it absolutely comes off as 'hipstery' but the reasons why are hard to pin down

anyways, let's keep this out of bobbins cause it is definitely it's own 'thing'

xps

There's been some talk on the Not Not Fun thread as well. It's pretty easy to draw lines from say other acts on NNF to the house-inflected material, also some of the projects Gavin Russom has been involved in (Black Meteoric Star, No Fun Acid). Most of the time it seems to be noise/avant artists trying their hand at dance rather than dance artists trying their hand at noise, which is I guess why it codes as "hipster" and a lot of it would sound odd in a club.

I haven't kept up with all the 100% Silk releases, but "Ital's Theme" is a track I've been playing a lot recently:

Also, some of these artists aren't just releasing hipster house - the Xander Harris album is standard NNF tropical Italo dub iirc.

a lot of this stuff just reeeeeeeeeeeeks of portland

it's time for the purpculator (psychgawsple), Wednesday, 5 October 2011 23:25 (3 years ago) Permalink

feel like first-wave IDIB is absolutely the antecedent of 100% silk in every applicable sense, johnny jewel from glass candy started out making noise/drone as twenty-six and iirc used to brag in interviews about palling around with wolf eyes, pretty much blazing the trail from noise/lo-fi to dance that many of the people named itt are currently following

easy to look at 100% silk as filling the void IDIB left when glass candy and chromatics went on hiatus and the label mostly just put out nu-disco 12s that could have just as easily come out on dfa or permanent vacation, wouldn't be surprised if that's how they saw themselves, glass candy and jewel's solo "mystery producer" mirage singles seem like the template for so much of it

james brooks, Wednesday, 5 October 2011 23:42 (3 years ago) Permalink

i guess to some extent the early dfa connections to no wave / black dice / six finger sattelite are the beginnings of this template, and i have no doubts that you could reach much further back than that if you wanted to.

another thing that had me torn is when i read about ital's production technique

part of me is like whoa, that's really cool, but part of me is like, why? and then all of me answers its because someone spent a lot of time in critique sessions talking about *process*

Darren Huckerby (Dwight Yorke), Thursday, 6 October 2011 00:01 (3 years ago) Permalink

Surely 100% Silk is the house to IDIB's disco? The Silk stuff is far more trackier. And I'm just going to throw in the Invisible Conga People are easily my favourite act from this axis.

Ital's production technique is discussed here: http://www.littlewhiteearbuds.com/podcast/lwe-podcast-97-ital/

Jedmond, Thursday, 6 October 2011 00:05 (3 years ago) Permalink

I think IDIB is more connected to 70s and 80s disco and early house/techno, whereas this stuff is a further rooted in the 90s when house and techno were more established.

That video for Miracles Club "Church Song" looks so much fun, one for the "videos I want to live inside of" thread. It was the song I was dancing around my kitchen too a few weeks ago when I accidentally broke a glass and stood on it, so now it has a bittersweet connotation for me.

Can we also join the dots between this stuff and: "My Girls"; Delorean; Sincerely Yours (the record label); John Talabot?

i wish some of these artists would take mastering and pressing quality a little more seriously as they often sound dreadful on a club system.

stirmonster, Thursday, 6 October 2011 00:17 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah i mean i didn't mean to imply that 100% silk was just a rote continuation of the exact music IDIB started out releasing, more just like picking up the ball that IDIB sorta dropped when they turned into a comparatively standard-issue nu-disco/edits label

always got the sense that glass candy/chromatics really resisted any attempts to be connected to the larger context of what else was going on in music at the time, refusing for example to allow official remixes or cooperate with warp or dfa or any of the other labels that were absolutely pursuing them

sorta feel like maybe anyone who was a fan of theirs that followed that worldview would have valued not the fact that they referenced disco but that they approached dance music in general from a point of view that was more in line with the ethos of noise/punk/DIY music than anything people actually played in clubs

like to think of 100% silk as those people, who maybe always assumed IDIB would continue to explore that approach and follow the natural progression of influences from 80's disco to 90's house, and ended up deciding to do it themselves once it became clear IDIB wasn't ever going to get around to it

james brooks, Thursday, 6 October 2011 00:27 (3 years ago) Permalink

I didn't meant to suggest otherwise - just to point out how 100% provide a continuum in more than just one way.

I'm actually a little hesitant to almost dismiss stuff like the artists on 100% Silk with a name like "hipster house" (not that that was necessarily the intention here)... that area involves your more psych-y/post-drone types... who for my take tend to be a little more involved and experimental than the usual "LOLindies-going-____".

besides, the psychedelic tendency to mess with the form is a way things can mutate and evolve, so I'm kinda feeling it, actually. Maria Minerva is one of my favorite things out there right now

i think the point I was trying to make in my earlier post (quoted in the question for this thread) is that this stuff codes as "hipster" in ways that I'm almost tempted to call objective - rather than the kind of pedigree-based "oh this person is a poser"/"lolindie" implication of the word which can only ever be relational to the speaker.

Objective significations of hipsterism in this material:

1) faux-period sleeve art;

2) faux-period monikers (not "Teengirl Fantasy" which is hipster in a different way, but definitely "100% Silk", "Miracles Club", "Magic Touch", "Ital"); and

3) notwithstanding (1) and (2), an air (sonically and discursively) of distance from the very things that (1) and (2) mimic, not superiority or even necessarily straight sonic differentiation, rather a sense that the original artifact is defined by its aura of inacessibility and unreproduceability - a time of lost innocence etc. etc.

basically 100% Silk : early house :: Stereolab : space age bachelor pad music.

I saw Holly Herndon perform last night. I don't know if I'd group it with this discussion/hipster house, if we were to define hipster house as having distinct CHICAGO references/genesis. More of a someone coming out of experimental type stuff into a minimal thing. I suppose you could group her with this if you want, but at this point every new band has some sort of 4/4 dance thing going on, so that definition would get pretty loose.

Her set was cut short however because Large Professor and RZA wanted to go on. Also performing was Driphouse, Forma and Mas Ysa. It was some sort of clusterfuck in the financial district thrown so the Motherboard blog/site of/from Vice could celebrate itself. Large Prof wasn't billed so that was a weird surprise.

the late great, Saturday, 1 December 2012 04:16 (1 year ago) Permalink

I almost brought this up before but figured it'd open a can of worms and maybe I'd get shit for it, but maybe I can coin another genre (if you recall I'm partially responsible for "beardo") and suggest simply post-house. To me, it makes a lot of sense. As something of a post-punk expert, I'm often explaining the obvious and less obvious sources of that term, generally you're talking about people coming out of punk and pushing it's envelope with these other influences (disco, funk, dub, krautrock, prog mostly), but the term later came to also describe acts that existed along with punk, and even before it. So wrap your brain around a concept like calling Pere Ubu or Television "post-punk" when, in an earlier and more obvious history, they are bands that helped invent punk, but in hindsight and in consideration of the "sound" of punk and the associations of post-punk, that makes sense.

So....post-house describes people coming out of conventional dance contexts and bringing in other influences (noise, krautrock/cosmische) etc, or acts coming from other genres into dance music and bringing their baggage. Now this brings up another discussion, which goes back to the beginnings of this thread, about authenticity (in sound). Someone coming out of post-punk/indie-rock or whatever making dance music that easily slotted into the mainstream of underground dance music, even while bending the form a little bit, wouldn't necessarily fit, but if they don't slot in easily, either because they're not competent enough to perfectly emulate chicago/detroit/etc(which is not a bad thing!) or because they bring something else to the table altogether different, then they do.

So a lot of the nu-disco stuff of the 2000s for instance, I wouldn't call "post-house" because they were producers reworking/reintroducing past dance forms...stretching the envelope a bit at times, reviving sounds, mixing up styles etc, but not breaking the mold.

Of course a lot of the stuff we've discussed in this thread fit that idea. I haven't heard enough of it all and don't like naming names anyway, and we discussed this when the thread started, but there's people emulating in a purely revival sound, and there's stuff that is something else alltogether...often they're the same labels, the same people, even the same 12", so who wants to bother breaking all that down.

Am I making any sense or is that just stupid? It makes sense to me. Of course we can all say "why bother trying to label anything, man" but you know what, it's fun and some of us get off on these kinds of discussions and if you don't, you can ignore or disagree but don't bother saying "don't label us bro" because you're gonna get labeled and maybe it's best to own it. In any case, a term like Post-House, as in post-punk, is not a value judgement but an understanding of shifts and trends.

I'm sorry, I don't really care this much, just rambling on putting off doing some other stuff, like making some post-house.

'Post house' makes sense, especially when applied to Ital. TLG - i agree it's strange I should be making these complaints as an IDM head, but somehow I have trouble mapping this stuff onto the same values as Warp-style artists. This record is shamblingly scruffy in every way - sometimes it stumbles into the sublime, but more often keels over into incompetency. Most of the time it walks this tightrope over both of them.
In a way I guess this guy is approaching noise music from a dance perspective, a bit like Black Dice have more recently doing vice versa.
But I'm just having trouble parsing it - I should like it on these terms, but there's just something unpleasant and sickly, maybe something about the overall frequency of the record (lots of grainy midrange) that I seem to have an aversion to.

I like Night Diamond on that release, but as much I might regret saying it, I'm not sure it really qualifies as hipster house!

yeah... imo it sounds more like post-electroclash idm? like mochipet or dj donna summer or something

very excited about the mood hut stuff mentioned upthread btw, pacific nw represent

feels like an insult to call young marco hipster house, but hey w/e i'll run with it since others are already talking him up here. this remix from last year is going for CRAZY $$$ on the discogs, it was only a run of 100 tho and i guess it's getting a repress from rush hour soon: https://soundcloud.com/#youngmarco/tony-g-simple-dreams-young

zombi has a thread, but this doesn't really sound like zombi

are we going to need a rolling ambient synth thread this year?

i definitely wouldn't be opposed to it. i like the knew age hippies thread but then i end up missing out on the darker spectrum spools-type stuff

i guess it would work in the IDM thread
