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 (one year ago) Permalink

does the name just come from this comp?

more or less

the late great, Wednesday, 13 December 2017 20:19 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year ago) Permalink

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

the late great, Wednesday, 14 February 2018 00:45 (one year 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 (one year 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.

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 (eleven 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...

MikoMcha, Thursday, 1 March 2018 11:03 (eleven months ago) Permalink

RQZ, from earlier this year, never heard of this guy before - even though seems to be a resident at Club Midi and Mioritmic. Only a couple of releases out, this being the first

Laurel Halo was an astonishingly good DJ when I saw her a few years back, lots of Principe-style rhythmic workouts and bleepy early techno, I'm surprised she hasn't had her name attached to something like this before
