"Sunrise" is pretty much the perfect way to describe the Revenge's edits.

For whatever reason, I've been ambivalent about Eddie C (it probably has to do with some sort of narcissism of small differences that comes with being an Eddie B and also being Canadian), but to hell with that, this is incredible:

xpost: although from track 10 on its decidedly not slo-mo but was brilliant while it lasted.

This is 110-ish
Love it, I did a full on two hour 110 too 130 bpm set on the radio last month it was good fun and that track pretty much set me on the path to explore it more on the decks. Not really into the disco side of things, but love the vibe the slow tempo can bring to other sounds.

Bromanced a stranger last night. Brought together by a mutual love of Mark E. Truly music that that bridges divides.

I am absolutely obsessed with Matthew Kyle at the moment. Really captures that awesome throbbing intensity vibe that I love about the best of this stuff but with this really voluptuous deployment of soul as well:
He's got some awesome DJ mixes available on his soundcloud also. Some of the most consistently beautiful mixes I've heard:

Got this off the amazing Matthew Kyle live at Rhythm & Brunch set I told you bitches to download. Astounding:

"Brothers In Arms" by these dudes is also amazing:

Spent the weekend listening to Matthew Kyle. Top notch, esp the disconnected mix.
"Honey Sugar" is his most played track on soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/matthew_kyle/honey-sugar . Here's the Tyrone Davis song it edits, new to me:

seems both mark-e and the revenge have abandoned this sound now, ive done gigs with both recently and wasnt really feeling what theyre plying, slightly harder and faster with none vocals or cheeky samples that made their names. Perhaps a reaction to getting bigger gigs?
― straightola, Thursday, 8 September 2011 15:19 (1 year ago) Permalink
i think it probably is a reaction to those bigger gigs, and it's weird that all the interesting aspects of their earlier sounds keep getting washed out over time as they play at bigger and bigger clubs. it's not like it's impossible to draw out a faster song and treat it in a similar way to all the slomo stuff, so abandoning that sound really doesn't make much sense to me.
idk if lovebirds fit this category but this one is a nice example of how to ramp up those bpms and keep things idiosyncratic...

what did these old revenge records sound like?
looks kind of like house-influenced big beat or vice versa. maybe they are just moving back to that sound now that edits are kind of passe.
― mr peabody (moonship journey to baja), Thursday, 8 September 2011 17:03 (1 year ago) Permalink
i think one of things abt a lot of these tracks is that while they seem DJ-oriented i dont get the impression that being a good DJ is necessarily reflective of being a good producer of songs like this. that at some level, they are sort of at odds
― D-40, Thursday, 8 September 2011 17:48 (1 year ago) Permalink
i mean thats at some level a 'well duh' kind of thing but i think its partic true with the slow motion stuff
what do you mean? i have some questions about what you're getting at.
what seems dj-oriented about these tracks? what makes tracks dj oriented (as opposed to merely seeming like it). what makes a good dj? a good producer of songs like this? how are they at odds?
― mr peabody (moonship journey to baja), Thursday, 8 September 2011 17:53 (1 year ago) Permalink
i guess what i mean is, there are producers, and there are DJs, and producers who make songs people like end up becoming DJs, and that while they may have DJ'd before producing now they are suddenly booking more & more (and bigger) gigs, and suddenly they find that certain kinds of songs work better at certain times in sets, and that all-slow-motion-all-the-time can actually be pretty monotonous, so they start 'finding themselves' as DJs and subsequently lose the particular magic/distinctiveness of their producer-ly days as they start diversifying. Something is gained, something lost
― D-40, Thursday, 8 September 2011 17:56 (1 year ago) Permalink
this is a generalization
i havent seen any new Revenge sets or anything
oh i see this is not specific to "slow motion house"
― mr peabody (moonship journey to baja), Thursday, 8 September 2011 18:10 (1 year ago) Permalink
well doesnt have to be but seems like it could be applicable in this case?
― D-40, Thursday, 8 September 2011 18:21 (1 year ago) Permalink
was just spitballin
yeah i think it is sort of a "condition" afflicting all of dance music ... the DJ / producer divide. although often that leads down a boring trail (functionalism vs auterism, etc).
i was more wondering if you thought there was a specific reason that line of thought was particularly applicable to this style, except for the fact that it seems like these guys are sorta flailing at the moment.

remember reading an early interview with Mark E as he was first (and fast) becoming a name, and he hit on at least one angle of what you're saying, D-40, and spoke about tempo. He was like yeah, I make this slow stuff because it's funky and fun but when I DJ it's a lot of uptempo house that I love with this slower stuff dappled here and there at the right moments.
It reminded me of Michael Mayer in '04 saying schaffel was never meant to be The Sound of a whole night or mix or whatever, but rather dropped in to enhance the atmosphere. 'Course looking back Kompakt didn't really practice what he preached, what with whole mixes of the stuff and whatnot
― andrew m., Thursday, 8 September 2011 20:44 (1 year ago) Permalink
moonship- do you actually want to know what those tracks sound like? or were you positing that the revenge were uptempo to begin with?
i think linkwood has fared the best with more uptempo sounds, eg "electricity" and ESPECIALLY "one" (or dirty love or w/e was the first track on that 'from the vaults' release)
― a lagoon par la mer (psychgawsple), Thursday, 8 September 2011 21:22 (1 year ago) Permalink
"get up on it" is pretty rad, very in line with the first releases on instruments of rapture. the vocal sample is relatively cheeky too i suppose, has nothing to do with big beat to my knowledge
― a lagoon par la mer (psychgawsple), Thursday, 8 September 2011 21:29 (1 year ago) Permalink
no, i actually want to know what that stuff sounds like ... when i first got into slo mo house i scoured the net for those five20east singles but it seems like they never really made it to mp3
they look like big beat albums to my eyes, but as i said, i've never heard them.

oh well i would theorize that, in particular, slow mo disco doesnt seem particularly fun back to back to back in a dj set ... lots of dance movements come out of ~dance scenes~ as opposed to this which feels more producer-led
― D-40, Thursday, 8 September 2011 21:51 (1 year ago) Permalink
part of this is that i dont think ive ever been to a party or club where more than 1-2 tracks 'like this' were played where ppl were actually dancing
