let’s talk about lo fi house

I've checked it out a little on YouTube. Liked DJ Boring's stuff the best. (That's all I got.)

a lot of this stuff is worthless but a lot of it is sublime

is there a lofi jungle thing going on too? i like the DJ Playstation (RIP) sides i have a lot, that's more just retro-y ambient jungle. but his massive "press start" was put out on E-Beamz: https://youtu.be/dL1Nkll29kM

this jungle track by Trudge is really sweet too

sorry to go on a side tangent so early in the thread

yeah there is a whole axis of people doing something between lo fi and breaks ... thinking of people like dj zozi ...

the late great, Friday, 11 May 2018 00:33 (nine months ago) Permalink

wait is dj playstation dead?!?

the late great, Friday, 11 May 2018 00:36 (nine months ago) Permalink

more ambient jungle pls

i can’t hang w chiptune

always sounds like a parody to me

the late great, Friday, 11 May 2018 02:49 (nine months ago) Permalink

Haha does that actually sample Tekken? It just sounds like nice house music to me but the sample at the beginning does seem like it's from a "player select" screen or something.

Planning to sue this thread for giving me the false hope that DJ Eddie the Dog from Frasier was real

Ross From Friends is pretty good to be fair.

Matt DC, Friday, 11 May 2018 07:24 (nine months ago) Permalink

DJ Eddie The Dog From Frasier is the name of my new project, thanks guys

that kandinski track is the bane of my existence

due to th aesthetic choices made by the producer it’s rather difficult to mix

i've probably listened to Delroy Edwards' "RIO GRANDE" more than anything this year.. it's REALLY lofi, though

sounds good, thanks for the tip!

niels, Saturday, 6 October 2018 10:23 (four months ago) Permalink

I really enjoy how... rhythmically ecumenical this scene is? The way tracks will drift into electro or breakbeat inspired sections in this really unfussy manner reminds me of idk early nineties 808 state or something.

On this tip the Ross From Friends remix of Westerman’s “Edison” is really great, even if I guess you could box it as “Bicep with cred”.

Tim F, Monday, 15 October 2018 20:42 (four months ago) Permalink

AL-90 (mysterious Russian guy who's seemingly only popular on RYM) is great. I hear some strong Burial vibes in his work, this track especially:

For anyone else who had it in their Wantlist, the 2x12 of Ross From Friends’ Outsiders has finally been re-pressed.

sombrerodetuned (sombrerodetune), Saturday, 22 December 2018 10:35 (one month ago) Permalink

I saw their mate DJ Boring play at a festival earlier this year and he really was just playing the most shameless early 90s handbag house and R&B remixes.

One thing that all PR has evidently been very keen not to mention is that Ross From Friends is apparently Andy Weatherall's son?

Matt DC, Saturday, 22 December 2018 12:37 (one month ago) Permalink

haha what?

thread title still delivers the laughs

Let's list the key lofi house labels

hello

the late great, Saturday, 22 December 2018 18:31 (one month ago) Permalink

agree with lobster theremin and e-beamz as key labels.

more key labels:

-- 777 recordings

https://777recs.bandcamp.com/album/youtube-rips-777-03

somewhere between lo-fi and the berlin techno sound

-- lost palms (and to a lesser extent, parent label shall not fade)

triangulating lo-fi, breaks and more traditional US and french house sounds

like you mean lo-fi remixes of handbag house and r+b tracks? or just straight-up handbag house and handbag house remixes of r+b?

One thing that all PR has evidently been very keen not to mention is that Ross From Friends is apparently Andy Weatherall's son?

hmm

the late great, Saturday, 22 December 2018 18:49 (one month ago) Permalink

something striking about this scene is that a lot of it - especially the stuff that is the best/worst of it, in terms of being most shamelessly beholden to the style - isn't on any label, let alone available on vinyl

very much the blog house of the 10s

zone of fruitless intensification but with like ~vibes~ instead of drum programming

― Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Monday, April 16, 2018 6:03 PM (eight months ago

this kind of nailed it except that ZFI is a fake concept invented by music critics, should be called "zone of i've run out of novel things to say about this"

clearly the ethos of this music is that there's no such thing as too much nostalgic tape hiss

the comments threads on this nørus video are great reading btw

Straight up. In any case while I haven't delved especially deep into this stuff it doesn't feel especially lo-fi to me?

Matt DC, Saturday, 22 December 2018 19:46 (one month ago) Permalink

that's interesting

not sure a deep dive is warranted - there really is an endless amount of mediocre lofi house business out there on youtube

this EELF channel for example has about 700 videos across the two playlists below, i spent a good half hour listening to snippets and literally none of the tracks (well, besides that nørus track i already posted) were memorable

still, some fun to be had scrolling through to see how bad the names get (dj sabrina the teenage dj?)

the late great, Saturday, 22 December 2018 19:53 (one month ago) Permalink

OK I'm fully prepared to believe that each and every one of those artists is more lo-fi than Ross From Friends/DJ Seinfeld/DJ Boring.

Matt DC, Saturday, 22 December 2018 20:05 (one month ago) Permalink

so what's your objection to the lo-fi tag?

the late great, Saturday, 22 December 2018 20:14 (one month ago) Permalink

Okay Matt’s comment about Ross From Friends being an heir to the Andrew Weatherall fortune got me really excited to start recommending The Haunted Dancehall to all my lofi-obsessed friends as supplemental material, but a cursory Google of the topic seems to reveal that all the websites where the connection comes up take pains to clarify that, while his dad is a figure with 90’s rave connections and the last name “Weatherall”, he’s not that specific Weatherall.
That said the other thing Matt brought up about DJ Boring playing straight-up unvarnished handbag in a DJ set still has me excited, it’s my personal opinion that we need more handbag in the world of 2018.

brimstead, Saturday, 22 December 2018 22:49 (one month ago) Permalink

so wait, is Andrew Weatherall his dad or not?

frame casual (dog latin), Saturday, 22 December 2018 23:53 (one month ago) Permalink

I don't hear his stuff as lo-fi, that's an unfortunately off putting tag for an artist with an unfortunately off putting name who happens to make FANTASTIC music

frame casual (dog latin), Saturday, 22 December 2018 23:54 (one month ago) Permalink

Yeah I feel like LIES or something is real lo fi dance

Ross seems to have hifi aspirations

on the topic of being disapointed by non-lofiness of lofi house djs' sets, last summer my friend and i saw someone on lobster theremin (can't remember who) dj and they played tech house all night. well we left after an hour but i assume they'd continued

flopson, Sunday, 23 December 2018 05:39 (one month ago) Permalink

tech house can be awesome tho

macropuente (map), Sunday, 23 December 2018 05:45 (one month ago) Permalink

not sure if theyre lofi house but i really like the name DJ Fart in the Club

flopson, Sunday, 23 December 2018 05:48 (one month ago) Permalink

Feel like things like bergsonist and moma ready are sorta lo fi, but not really ... chill? at all and so don’t get lumped in

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Sunday, 23 December 2018 05:58 (one month ago) Permalink

LIES and the other labels that got called lo-fi splintered off into a bunch of different sounds embracing industrial, EBM, etc that are more varied and interesting than the youtube house that ended up inheriting the genre tag

How is it surprising that ppl who produce tracks that won't work in clubs... spin tracks that do work in clubs

did this already get discussed 10 years ago on the hipster house thread
