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 (four months ago) Permalink

does the name just come from this comp?

more or less

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 (four 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 (three 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

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

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

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

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.

MikoMcha, Tuesday, 27 February 2018 14:59 (one month 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 (one month ago) Permalink

that shyboi mix is a nice treat. coincidentally i got my new DISCWOMAN tee in the mail last week after wearing out my first one. if anyone here is in NY, try to catch them at the bossa nova civic club. their nights are good fun.

Are people not feeling Will Long? I think I had previously heard his name via the Sprinkles association but that's about it. I listened to Long Trax II today and while I get why some might call bullshit / naked emperor on this--what he does is really very simple--I sorta love it anyway?

Paul Ponzi, Monday, 19 March 2018 22:40 (one month ago) Permalink

I bought that Long / Sprinkles double CD, it is some of my favorite music, not sure if I prefer w/ or wo overdubs but yeah, v v simple, v effective

niels, Tuesday, 20 March 2018 19:29 (one month ago) Permalink

I love Will Long for his Celer work, have done so for nearly 15 years. I really liked his teaming up with Sprinkles, but Long's new album is just very off-putting, sadly. Pitchfork hit the nail on the head the other day. The gratuitous use of Obama samples, and appropriating along the way by using "black voices" with a result that just isn't up to speed... It's a big fail, the new one. One to forget.

Google Atheist (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 20 March 2018 19:33 (one month ago) Permalink

the gratuitous use of Obama samples, and appropriating along the way by using "black voices"

he does this on the first Long Trax release too, though

I'd definitely prefer all of these tracks without the vocal samples, but mostly because their presence makes it harder to zone out

Paul Ponzi, Wednesday, 21 March 2018 13:45 (one month ago) Permalink

But otherwise this is the even more minimal version of Seidensticker's Scribbled I have always wanted

normally roll my eyes @ p4k and this type of writing but this one gets it right

"Bristol’s Batu is an ambassador of an emerging strain of UK techno that prizes steely textures and linear shapes to an almost psychedelic degree. In this unabashedly peak-time set, recorded on a February night between 5 and 7 a.m., Batu wields that aesthetic like a corkscrew, molding repetitive drum patterns into long, fluid lines that drive cleanly and relentlessly forward. It’s a style of mixing that allows him to drop some pretty mammoth bangers without ever bashing his listeners over the head with them. And when he does diverge from the rolling, four-to-the-floor pulse, the explosions of broken beats sound all the more earth-shattering."
