can a snare be too big? can it have too much reverb?

phase fatale's new album is great, i thought i might not like it b/c apparently it's mixed to sound good at berghain, with less emphasis on mid-range, but it just sounds like good heavy shit to me idk

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Tuesday, 25 February 2020 03:27 (one year ago) link

i also have this spotify playlist that consists mostly of this kind of thing if anyone is interested: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4cXTfXXoYv7mroJ9X1379n?si=F5_ESE-uQduUhRHMysG02A

i'm sure i'll pull stuff from this thread to add to it as well

job sifre is great cause he's willing to stray out into the edges of industrial, incorporating funkier electro or dub sounds, rather than focusing on techno

Was gonna ask about him, I love the Het Bastaan EP to death

Corduroy Stridulations (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 07:34 (one year ago) link

looking forward to this thread, it's a sound I like but I don't actively keep up w/ this stuff unless listening to some intermittently industrial-adjacent shows like Silent Servant on NTS counts

half these acts are new to me but am always up for new Schwefelgelb

a passing spacecadet, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 09:23 (one year ago) link

xp

yes het bestaan rules, one of the EPs that really got me into this whole thing. he has a show on red light radio called antikunst that's fantastic. he and identified patient are roommates iirc, i think of them as the amsterdam young dude EBM duo

new cardopusher. barcelona based guy with a good bit of acid in his sound and more 80's flourishes. first heard him in a josh cheon (dark entries) mix

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Tuesday, 25 February 2020 14:45 (one year ago) link

I was asking myself "what's in bounds for this thread?" and was wondering what we collectively think about this wiki entry that somehow exists without getting deleted for being a spurious musical genre page:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrial_techno

mh, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 16:27 (one year ago) link

in my mind industrial is the goth mirror universe existing parallel to balearic's all-inclusive druggy beach umbrella, and i would therefore advocate a loose interpretation of the thread's boundaries. that said i liked blawan's bohla in 2011 but i never thought aggro post-dubstep techno was v industrial, and once that wiki gets to contrasting techno industrial with industrial techno it has completely lost me

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Tuesday, 25 February 2020 16:40 (one year ago) link

at inc miami people performed scuzzy rhythmic noise while wearing bdsm gear and i don't think they thought they were playing techno-industrial-not-industrial-techno

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Tuesday, 25 February 2020 16:45 (one year ago) link

tried getting a friend who was into Perturbator (which is.. synth wave, I guess?) into Ancient Methods w/o much success

on the other hand, there are definitely ebm purists who have this parallel scene, at least as far as I've seen in north america, who don't like the crossover

I was attending a festival last year and was mildly disappointed when Blawan had to cancel but definitely enthused when Veronica Vasicka took over his spot

mh, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 17:00 (one year ago) link

i had the same exact experience with a friend who was into Perturbator (he also likes Umberto) and have been able to get him more into EBM through Kontravoid and SARIN, he also really likes the spotify playlist that i shared above. i think the trick for converting people that are already cool with vaguely gothic electronic music is to not go too techno too fast, start with boy harsher, kontravoid, etc. soon enough they will learn to love the brutal snare+kick and forget silly melodies

glad you like! i went on a tear through the thread after i posted those and bought a bunch of stuff you and others posted. weirdly my favorite tracks are a little more indie-goth flavored (the anthony naples remix of working men's club and the nite fields track). also liking what cardopusher is doing.

Linda and Jodie Rocco (map), Thursday, 7 October 2021 22:34 (two weeks ago) link

i think that makes sense, the indie-goth flavors probably mix more easily with the house and disco sounds you're liking

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Thursday, 7 October 2021 22:40 (two weeks ago) link

i like to use chuggy psychedelic stuff to bridge this kind of thing with disco, e.g. zillas on acid, radial gaze, anatolian weapons

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Thursday, 7 October 2021 22:42 (two weeks ago) link

yes that makes sense, dark disco / chug is closely related to both and a nice bridge.

Linda and Jodie Rocco (map), Thursday, 7 October 2021 22:49 (two weeks ago) link

brimstead, go right to Rotund for Success, probably the poppiest/most accessible moment, when Sev Heads skirted closest to new wave club music album.

right on, thank u
