Mates, this Takecha record looks like a solid bit of January transfer window business!

i've never heard of Beatdown as a genre before! i like to learn one new thing a day.

scott seward, Wednesday, 13 December 2017 20:15 (ten months ago) Permalink

does the name just come from this comp?

more or less

the late great, Wednesday, 13 December 2017 20:19 (ten months ago) Permalink

the guys on that comp coined the term to describe their style - which is how the comp got its name - and it caught on among sympathetic producers

I don't think I've ever noticed the genre names on discogs before!

saer, Wednesday, 13 December 2017 20:28 (ten months ago) Permalink

genre names are designed to make you think bad records are good and good records are bad, its trickery and obfuscation

straw poll: new juan atkins vocals on moodymann’s “no ufos”. classic or tragic?

i thought i was going to hate the luciano mix because lol tribal bongo minimal but it's actually pretty rad! has kind of a classic boompty beat and just the right amount of electro lock and pop and is hypnotically minimal (in terms of structure) as opposed to annoyingly minimal (no awful mid 2000s computer sound palette)

the late great, Saturday, 6 January 2018 00:45 (nine months ago) Permalink

also there's cool submerged chimes

it's a shame i had to buy the OG again!

I think this is my favourite record of last year, and i forgot to nominate it in the poll

its Sir Benni Steil

DJI, Tuesday, 13 February 2018 23:22 (eight months ago) Permalink

Cool, DJI, will do.

re: the Moodymann remix of No Ufos mentioned upthread, I think the new vocals are a bummer. They sounded fine in the sample but I was let down when I got the thing in the mail. This is okay with me b/c I didn't have the original, though, and that Luciano version is surprisingly tasty.

davey, Wednesday, 14 February 2018 00:24 (eight months ago) Permalink

i'm more into the vocals now than i was before!

the late great, Wednesday, 14 February 2018 00:45 (eight months ago) Permalink

yes they are groaningly corny ... but so are most detroit techno vocals? and so are the o.g. version vocals. so they have been growing on me.

MikoMcha, Saturday, 17 February 2018 00:34 (eight months ago) Permalink

ahh sorry i didn't play it last night after all. as i was forgetting there was a love theme for the night so i didn't think it'd slot in with my set. :/ i got the best reactions to older bobbins though, so maybe it would've gone over well anyway. shoot.

davey, Sunday, 18 February 2018 04:55 (eight months ago) Permalink

Check bobbins of the past thread for some great vocals from Basile Boli and Chrissy Waddle!

Yeah, so the 15 years of the Bunker comp is pretty consistently great.

MikoMcha, Tuesday, 27 February 2018 14:59 (seven months ago) Permalink

Bunker comp feels very much like a 90's techno thing to me, like microhouse or minimal never happened. Even the cover as a Tresor-style homage...

D. Tiffany goes a bit garage. I'm not really into the whole Vancouver house scene but I'm feeling her stuff

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4V0Mz1d7Dd4

A 100BPM chugger for ya. I listened to this at 33 in the shop, got it home and thought it was probably meant to be played at 45 but I'd listen to it at 33 instead because I like it better, then found out that it actually is a 33. True story

paolo, Tuesday, 14 August 2018 16:20 (two months ago) Permalink

i was not so into d. tiffany at first, but then i found out she is the same person as dj zozi, so i am going back and reevaluating

started by picking up that v2m 12" though haven't really given it a proper listen yet

'How RU Plush' from last year is an absolute peach
