I was pulling yer leg, but I'd be genuinely interested in finding out what this is... especially if it sounds anything like Tomb by Gatekeeper - one of the the few dubstep records I wouldn't want to be parted from.

The music's like this weird dark reggaeton hip-hop kinda thing. Way slower and more drawn out than typical reggaeton

burt_stanton, Sunday, 30 November 2008 21:12 (eleven years ago) link

there are some pretty creepy slow reggaeton songs.

burt_stanton, Sunday, 30 November 2008 21:22 (eleven years ago) link

dudes no one is driving around brooklyn or anywhere in america playing dubstep records.

>no one is driving around brooklyn or anywhere in america playing dubstep records

For which we should all be eternally fucking grateful. I liked a fair amount of stuff on WordSound back at the end of the '90s, but dubstep is bullshit.

Sounds to me like Cumbia Rebajada which is like Cumbia slowed down by cough syrup or something like that. There's this Monterrey guy, who happens to be friends with Diplo, named Toy Selectah. He went to London and did an appearance with Sinden at Kiss FM about two months ago. He mixes this slowed cumbia sounds with reggaeton and makes some other beats that he calls Raverton. He's remixed loads of stuff, latin stuff mainly. Got get some of this remixes from his side project's website @ sonideronacional.com/blog/

If it ain't something like this i'd still like to know what the hell are we talking about,

burt_stanton, can you record this experience the next time it takes place?

Doctor Casino, Sunday, 30 November 2008 21:55 (eleven years ago) link

If I can find my digital recorder I'll give it a shot

Makes sense - I guess the needle would jump too much.

Not really. If I'm around I'll record some of it ... it's pretty dark and violent. gun blast sound effects, all that shit.

This is one of those threads that really should turn into an I Make Music challenge, everybody make a recording of how you imagine, in your head, the Grim Reapah Style to be.

Doctor Casino, Sunday, 22 February 2009 04:13 (ten years ago) link

I heard about 6 of these alien songs go by in a row ... like a motorcade of cars blasting this music. I guess these are dirty foreigners and this is music from their country.

burt_stanton, Sunday, 22 February 2009 04:16 (ten years ago) link

ok, someone blasting lil wayne. that's better.

burt_stanton, Sunday, 22 February 2009 04:20 (ten years ago) link

PLAN A) SIT OUTSIDE AND WRITE DOWN THE LYRICS AND GOOGLE THEM.

PLAN B) STOP BEING THE NEIGHBORHOOD-GENTRIFYING SCARED-OF-THE-LOCALS MESSENGER-BAG-WEARING WHITEY BLOGGER SHITHEAD YOU MAKE FUN OF IN EVERY "HIPSTER" THREAD AND ACTUALLY GO UP TO A HUMAN BEING AND ASK THEM POLITELY WHAT IT IS

Everything on this playlist postdates the question in this thread by several years, but if you ignore that small detail, it seems pretty close to the vibe described.

What kind of music is the hip-hopish stuff the showtime kids in the subway dance to? I feel like I asked this once in another thread but didn't get a clear answer and now I can't find it.

How much you want to bet that glenn has made a “grim reapah” genre category on spotify

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Saturday, 31 August 2019 14:46 (three months ago) link

It's called "scream rap". Other than not existing at the time when this question was posed, it is definitely what was being described.

glenn mcdonald, Saturday, 31 August 2019 16:10 (three months ago) link

heh, i kinda meant that you might've built a "burbbhrbhbbhbburbbb" category and i am just a LITTLE disappointed you haven't.... yet.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Saturday, 31 August 2019 16:25 (three months ago) link

I've spent a fair amount of time trying to figure out what the original grim reapah thing was, with no luck. This new stuff sounds totally like some people had been trying to find it, too, and finally got fed up and said "if we can't find it, let's MAKE it".
