I don't really know where this drifted in from, but I do know Basile Boli was unavailable for vocals this time around

Yeah, so the 15 years of the Bunker comp is pretty consistently great.

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...

Hi bobbinsers - been lurking on this thread for the last few months, having made my first proper effort to get into techno at the end of last year (more from a DnB/UKG/dubstep background dance music wise).

Was checking out the bunker comp on iTunes and pressed the purchase button by mistake! Not regretting it though; although I generally find melodic and minimal stuff to be more accessible at this point there are some great tunes here. I guess my ideal would be a midpoint between this very deep and detailed textural stuff and the broader melodic flourishes of Kompakt.

this mix is rly doing it for me

are you aware of this thing called berghain?

the late great, Thursday, 1 March 2018 18:09 (one year ago) link

Sure, but are you talking about the club or Ostgut Ton? Berghain runs a range of programmed events, increasingly so I'd say.

But sure, there is a 90s "classicism" strain, obv. If that's what you're saying...

MikoMcha, Thursday, 1 March 2018 18:30 (one year ago) link

they have a lot of special events but the main room / panoramabar bookings are still pretty much of a certain vein

mh, Thursday, 1 March 2018 19:17 (one year ago) link

there's not an official resident list I know of, but I just remembered this page where someone crunched the data: http://cdm.link/2017/05/berghain-numbers-data-worlds-relentless-techno-club/

mh, Thursday, 1 March 2018 19:34 (one year ago) link

xp yeah i was just saying - in my admittedly snarky way - that the 90s techno revival has been in full swing for at least 5-6 years now

oddly enough it doesn't have seem to have changed the fortunes of tresor the label or club much ... though maybe the principals are just old enough now they don't care to put in the effort ...

the late great, Thursday, 1 March 2018 19:35 (one year ago) link

I think Tresor just keeps on grinding

mh, Thursday, 1 March 2018 19:37 (one year ago) link

yeah just at a much reduced rate!

i am very interested in picking up the SCOPEX collection they just put out ... some discussion on the electro thread awhile back

the late great, Thursday, 1 March 2018 19:38 (one year ago) link

I kind of slept on it and I think the vinyl might be sold out, but maybe they'll release it digitally eventually

mh, Thursday, 1 March 2018 19:50 (one year ago) link

no vinyl is still available

the late great, Thursday, 1 March 2018 19:55 (one year ago) link

Hmmm... let me put it this way, The Bunker release really reminds me of a comp I would have bought in my early 20s, or even a teenager. Not sure why that is...

And I do hear what you're saying of course. I should add I don't think that this record is a landmark release or anything, it just struck me that I hadn't posted on ILM for a while ;)

I was interested in that Dreamy Harbour Tresor collection btw, but found it a bit dull when I checked it, even sorta exhausting to listen to.

MikoMcha, Thursday, 1 March 2018 19:55 (one year ago) link

xp

hardwax has a copy anyway

lots of copies on discogs still at retail (40 EUR)

the late great, Thursday, 1 March 2018 19:56 (one year ago) link

i quite liked "dreamy harbour" ... it was my going-to-bed music for awhile

the late great, Thursday, 1 March 2018 19:57 (one year ago) link

Yeah, I suspect I might have to return to it. The contributing artists list alone tells me it's something I should be into.

MikoMcha, Thursday, 1 March 2018 20:02 (one year ago) link

some fire disco edits fa'ya: https://www.juno.co.uk/products/jacques-renault-favicon/677464-01/

davey, Monday, 5 March 2018 07:56 (one year ago) link

i like the b-side on this new mr. saturday night EP, kind hippie-ish and trancey: https://www.discogs.com/Shore-A-Hundred-Times-EP/release/10914741

and i love this little boogie-funk bomb: https://www.juno.co.uk/products/unit-one-lets-all-sing-together/675376-01/

davey, Monday, 5 March 2018 08:15 (one year ago) link

wasn't sure disco edits were allowed here, but anyway I just missed out on the latest Persie Edits 12" (005). Oh well

this one's still my favorite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNp1PnfWQD0

Paul Ponzi, Monday, 5 March 2018 14:45 (one year ago) link

Re the Scopex compilation - it's terrific and I'd never even heard of this label until I saw the review on RA.

(I don't know all that much about any electro that isn't Drexciya or one of their various side projects)

paolo, Monday, 5 March 2018 17:57 (one year ago) link

those persie edits are fucking hard to get a hold of

i was trying to get the "oye como va" one, lol good luck to me!

not implying you should keep the edits off this thread but here are a couple threads on the topic

Disco Edits S/D

BEARDO DISCO (finally fixed for vahid) - not idjuts / lindstrom - harvey, rub'n'tug, map of africa

Mark E, The Revenge & Slow-Motion House/Disco

the late great, Monday, 5 March 2018 18:33 (one year ago) link

i'll post edits that are more on bobbinslike in this thread, others in the beardo/edits threads. thanks for the links l8 gr8.

the Church label has been good. i like this little LP of theirs quite a lot:

Post whatever you like that has a good emotion! Demarcation is for bureaucrats and pedants heres the new one from Henry Hyde, it has a spring in its step and and eye for goal!

Lanark Artefax - Touch Absence (Intimidating Stillness Mix), I hadn't heard this before. Apparently was a limited edition dubplate, now reissued by Whities on their latest 12.

Niiice.

I really like the SHYBOI RA mix, I was a little surprised that it's so four-on-the-floor (and I'm not a techno person myself), but the sheer energy is definitely the vibe I'm looking for.

Nice wee bit of deep house, EP comes with a couple of nice wee bits of Balearic/disco type stuff

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Map37bJ0X5c

New Levon Vincent. Not all that different from old Levon Vincent but still good if you're into that

paolo, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 21:56 (one year ago) link

Those Tessela and Lanark Artefax tracks are terrific. I've not really gotten the hype around LA, the tracks I've heard have been a bit too IDMish. That one's my favourite by far

paolo, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 21:59 (one year ago) link

paolo the one that isn't Levon Vincent isn't showing, what is it?

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 23:44 (one year ago) link

Hundres Times by Peggy Gou. Dunno why it isn't showing

paolo, Wednesday, 14 March 2018 09:13 (one year ago) link

Found this on Johnny Fever's 2018 faves Spotify list, pretty nice release on Kompakt.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BI1FLCKwA8

Not sure if it was posted somewhere else...

MikoMcha, Thursday, 15 March 2018 07:59 (one year ago) link

That's good stuff!

I think I am gonna pre-order this: https://soundcloud.com/dfa-records/perel-alles-radio-edit

404 Not Found

Paul Ponzi, Thursday, 15 March 2018 19:34 (one year ago) link

weird. it seems to be resolving for me.

davey, Thursday, 15 March 2018 21:25 (one year ago) link

works for me

Heavy Messages (jed_), Thursday, 15 March 2018 21:47 (one year ago) link

it was a 404 for me earlier but now it is not

That one is just outrageous, the last ten minutes are especially, gloriously, shameless.

Matt DC, Thursday, 15 March 2018 22:05 (one year ago) link

wack

the late great, Thursday, 15 March 2018 23:14 (one year ago) link

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.

davey, Friday, 16 March 2018 10:49 (one year ago) link

xp it's wack but OTOH the stinkier the cheese, the tastier, sometimes P:

i mean did you hear the DJ bus replacement service mix, yowza

davey, Friday, 16 March 2018 10:52 (one year ago) link

Is it wack because the selections are too obvious/rinsed, or what?

For the haters, this mix is stunning imo: https://soundcloud.com/djshyboi/community-praise-and-worship-night

change display name (Jordan), Friday, 16 March 2018 16:18 (one year ago) link

yeah that’s exactly my complaint with it, obvious selections + just kind of amateurish mixing

the late great, Friday, 16 March 2018 17:07 (one year ago) link

Nice feature on Lizz in xlr8r, surprisingly long interview!

and then this:)

I'm reading that Tzusing XLR8R piece, I like his stuff a lot. This track from the recent Discwoman charity comp is great, even played it out last weekend: https://physicallysick2.bandcamp.com/track/cubicle

Wow at that Lizz track

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 year ago) link

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

two months pass...

The other side of the Luckison record that smashed the EOY poll!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGywc1_2FYM

now I think maybe this side is better

reminds me a bit of a fluffier Metamatics Meander
