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 (eight months 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

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Tuesday, 25 February 2020 03:32 (eight months ago) link

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

nothing recent by him that i'm aware of tho

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Tuesday, 25 February 2020 03:39 (eight months ago) link

love this sumerian fleet remix

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tkEQsrX-kA

i put the year in the threat title cause i wanted to focus on new stuff but i also haven't seen these tracks mentioned on ilx so

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 (eight months 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 (eight months 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 (eight months 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 (eight months 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 (eight months 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 (eight months 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 (eight months 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

just now getting around to alessandro adriani's album from last year and it's soooo good. he loves to churn your brain around with rapidly panning staticky textures

the dude is stylistically all over the place! loved his first EP. “the goddess is dancing” from last year is pretty cool too!

brimstead, Wednesday, 18 March 2020 18:12 (seven months ago) link

yeah, he is! there's a certain lightness to his sound that is a constant between styles though

f yeah, catching up on this thread is gonna be fun. and not to self-promote but 100% of the tracks from my last post in the 'djs post yr mixes for downloads' thread belong here, most from this and last year.

i'm especially excited to find wonderful crossover material between UK bass and new beat, recently.

i think he leans toward the mutant lo-fi LIES techno end but still fits into the vibe. he records tons of stuff and some is more EBM, something like this fits for sure

While there's some Beau Wanzer chat, a shamelessly off-topic question - does anyone know what the "weird Belgian record" (no idea if actually Belgian) from about 1:10-4:40 on this DJ Speculator show with Beau Wanzer?
