I think the correct answer is Mike Paradinas.

I am getting a little burned out on Euro-juke, "bass music", or whatever you want to call it.

Josiah Alan, Sunday, 20 May 2012 06:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

Every time I try to get a mix together I just end up listening to the Sepalcure album a lot and wishing Machinedrum would quit messing around. Also do I like Salva? Maybe?

I feel like I probably should.

also tbh i think brits kinda aren't that great at this type of stuff in general with addison, pearson, girl unit, and jam city as the rule-proving exceptions. USA 4 lyfe

Yeah, there does seem to be some level of them just not getting it, not that I'm any more "down" with the kids because I saw a footwork crew do their thing to a Linkin Park song once.

I'm not even sure it's fair to impugn the continentals. They seem innocent enough. And are easier to ignore.

I'm a way bigger Hotflush fan than a Night Slugs one, although I guess they're on more of a softcore rave thing.

Wait, I'm confused - I thought Addison Groove was a jam band? "Hooptie Ride Marauders" and all that?

Well the tash wins in the cornball stakes obv.

Both their latest albums are kinda arse tho. Distal's was just a bit boring, rigid and grey. Addison Grooves sounded liek a remix of an old Diplo album... if he ever made one I dunno. They've both done some good singles though, Addison esspecialy.

i don't think i've ever heard an addison groove track i enjoy, and i've never heard a distal track at all

That's Slava, just for reference.

Josiah Alan, Sunday, 20 May 2012 08:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

I like Addison Groove, but I saw him play live a month ago and it was just bland. Haven't listened to the album, mostly cause the set was so bland. Machinedrum I will rep for certainly. Distal, I dunno. Boss of the south is fun for like 2 minutes then gets boring.

EDB, Sunday, 20 May 2012 08:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

This might be the best Distal track...

or

All his stuff kinda gets annoying or boring if you don't mix out of it fast though.

Pretty much like all the AG singles to some extent. Dumbshit, Sexual prob stand the test of time the best.

Not feeling Machinedrum at all really.

Salva does not equal Slava, they do both make bass music though.

Very confusing. Note to self.

It sounds like he's trying to figure out if he wants to be a house producer or not.

This is my favorite Addison Groove / Headhunter track, prefer the older alias.

Ugh that picture of distal... Anyways, if we're talking corny, then I say that French Fries - "Yo Vogue", as representative of the dirtybird take on footwork via uk bass, is surely the corniest of the corny.

EDB, Sunday, 20 May 2012 12:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

I love the distal album. Never really crossed my mind to wonder where he was from

lol I know Distal irl but only learned this week that he was a "serious" musician this week when a friend posted the pfk review on fb, wtf @ me right?

Euler, Sunday, 20 May 2012 20:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

i like french fries! i like both addison groove and distal, i just feel like they look silly. if i could sum it up, i might say distal : ed banger :: addison groove : bathing ape. or i might say distal : ninja tune :: addison groove : mo'wax. i am predisposed to like addison groove because when i was young i lusted after freestyle bikes and those shoes. addison groove looks like he wants an ice cream, distal looks like he wants breast milk.

i also like their european take on juke and footwork music. people accuse it of being empty and thin but its just effectively spaced out. like the music of these cerebral and malnourished young creepers

the late great, Sunday, 20 May 2012 22:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

i particularly like what distal's doing with ghettotech, there was a moment when dj assault almost turned into ltj bukem and some stuff i can't find youtubes of like "boca ratawn" reminds me of that

That's good too but not as good by a mile.

I think I just have a bias against post-flying lotus phased synth chords at this point. They make everything sound more ~studied~ than they would otherwise.

Are people saying Distal's stuff is a 'european take on juke' or am I just to tired? He's from Atlanta right?
