wish i'd actually bought 'a collage education' for excellent rework of 'love can't turn around'.

love 'back 2 back' and ruf dog 'dirty' 12"s (which i did get).

impossible choice. maybe unabombers??

surge gainsbourg protector (haitch), Sunday, 4 October 2009 01:52 (5 years ago) Permalink

or maybe leo zero? would fit your more balearic tempo sets easily. they're all great!

So this is a thread for people who wish they were Theo but aren't nearly as good? Exciting.

haha. i thought i was in this thread when i posted that

itt: kinda out there, maybe kinda experimental, maybe kinda pretentious modern r&b

mark e just released tons of stuff. i dig the freakin shriekin 12", and the one on endless flight (codsall juniors?) is growing on me

all instruments of rapture stuff from this year is also v good, tho the revenge seems to be falling off a bit with most of his other releases and remixes

also the don froth 12" from early this year is still doing it for me tho. and don't forget about the linkwood album!!!

Some of the MCDE Raw Cuts tracks are right up this street too

plazzTT, Monday, 5 October 2009 00:42 (5 years ago) Permalink

The recent Mark E 12" on Merc has a side ("track 1") that sounds like a slowed down house-y edit of an R-Tyme track!

I know I always post Juno links, but really if you go to their best selling Deep House page it is like a primer on this stuff.

NEW FIRECRACKER EP ALERT

surge gainsbourg protector (haitch), Wednesday, 7 October 2009 00:09 (5 years ago) Permalink

are you talking about the intrusion dubs or something else? link?

psychgawsple, Wednesday, 7 October 2009 00:53 (5 years ago) Permalink

it's a new one!

surge gainsbourg protector (haitch), Wednesday, 7 October 2009 01:22 (5 years ago) Permalink

like an eagle! i'm stoked!

has everyone had a chance to listen to the linkwood full-length? totally willing to upload if need be

psychgawsple, Wednesday, 7 October 2009 01:45 (5 years ago) Permalink

also just realized this came out earlier in the year- http://www.discogs.com/Ray-Mang-Mangled-Again/release/1806800. what i've heard is pretty stellar

psychgawsple, Wednesday, 7 October 2009 02:08 (5 years ago) Permalink

3 weeks pass...

so yeah, this is pretty much going to be the next big thing, i think, as the cosmic disco / balearic trend slowly dies down

so what's really good and new?

moonship journey to baja, Wednesday, 28 October 2009 04:31 (5 years ago) Permalink

It's not super-new, but have you heard "Walk in Deepness" by Reggie Dokes? (on Prime Numbers) That is my jam. It's 120 BPM psychedelic jazz house, but sounds awesome pitched down.

The new Big Strick single on FXHE is very good as well. There are some techno tracks on it, but "A Walk Down Linwood" is definitely fitting for this thread. It came out on the FXHE comp earlier this year, but the new single has two versions. Beautiful keys.

t (tricky), Wednesday, 28 October 2009 04:53 (5 years ago) Permalink

Gotta agree with you tricky, that whole EP is pretty mindblowing. Its a shame we might lose him to making R'n'B.

I guess its not a shame for the autotune cru though, I'm kinda curious what his stuff might sound like.

Apparently he's a big Jam and Lewis head.

Back when I still had a weekly I played Jam and Lewis's Latin mix of Patti Austin Heat of Heat all the time. The semi-empty bar appreciated that, my friends begged me to play dubstep instead.

But that kind of late 80s modern soul slots in like a dream with this kind of thing.

Obviously with the Janet edit.

Anybody care for a FLAC of the track?

Who are you talking about "losing to R'n'B" Siah?

matt2, Wednesday, 28 October 2009 15:15 (5 years ago) Permalink

Reggie Dokes.

The John Daly - Sea & Sky album is pretty good. Can't wait for the Juju and Jordash album but I anticipate that being a bit faster in the bpm range.

yo dawgs, this is deep house

jaxon, Wednesday, 28 October 2009 15:35 (5 years ago) Permalink

Is there an interview or something somewhere where he mentions going RnB?

matt2, Wednesday, 28 October 2009 16:02 (5 years ago) Permalink

speaking of 'yo dawgs, this is deep house', the Lerosa mix up on InfiniteStateMachine is pretty much Slow Motion House. image even says Dead Slow. It's not very well mixed but the tracks are excellent.

brotherlovesdub, Wednesday, 28 October 2009 16:56 (5 years ago) Permalink

as good as some of this stuff is its a boring thing to be 'next' imo

A: Yes, I am currently producing R&B, Pop and Hip Hop in Atlanta. That was one of my reasons for coming to Atlanta, Georgia. I appreciate most genres of music, and it has always been a passion of mine to pursue and challenge myself creatively. Right now as far as R&B producers of the past, it would have to be Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Baby Face and L.A. Reid and Teddy Riley. In the present it would have to be Tricky Stewart and The Dream, Danja Handz, Timbaland and the Neptunes.

Thanks for that Siah. I had actually seen that interview, intended to read it, and never did.

Very much enjoying this new-ish Mark E joint. Very lush as usual.

deej OTM, but the comp has its moments - particularly the second track.

the whole comp sounds fucking fantastic in my car. bass!

hobbes, Friday, 5 March 2010 01:36 (4 years ago) Permalink

should've put "scared" on it, though

hobbes, Friday, 5 March 2010 01:37 (4 years ago) Permalink

agree in that he's pretty samey tone/feel wise. it's often the source material that makes his tracks add up, but i'm ok with dance producers having a certain groove they hit repeatedly in slightly different ways. i think he's best when his samples give some extra rhythmic push (the piano pedals in "you") or he's a little more active on the drums (slave1 snares).

i would've put beat down on there myself.
