yeah I posted in the "diss hyped releases" about that Skee Mask album, bewildering critical praise

Shed is just a highly exceptional producer, the way he makes the bass rumble in the mix is just awesome.

I don't know how much longevity value it will have, but for now I'm quite digging that Pariah album.

Anyone who has not yet heard the atrociously titled 'Steal Chickens From Men And The Future From God' by the Swedish duo Shakarchi & Straneus should do so while the weather's still this good.

DJ Koze has been repping hard for it and you can tell why, although it's a lot better than his album.

i have been listening a lot of octo octa lately and i think she is a wonderful album artist. the one from last year is especially good

anyway if you like your contemporary kosmische music i can give no higher recommendation than to the new vakula on leleka, "metaphors"

That is great and seemingly unavailable. I mean it's not unavailable - it's £70 on discogs but...

Ned Trifle X, Tuesday, 4 September 2018 15:40 (six months ago) Permalink

yeah i grabbed mine as soon as it was on hardwax, he sometimes represses his bandura releases but rarely see leleka represses ...

I posted this on the rolling house and techno thread, but this is maybe a better place for it. The new Djrum album is very good, imo, for a crossover between bass and techno. I've listened to it a few times on Spotify so far (the 2LP is sold out a lot of places at the moment, it seems, but it's on R&S so should be repressed soon?) and it's terrific and a great, fully realized album.

The Vakula is on Spotify if that’s not too sacrilegious a thing to say

Oops actually it’s his new one, which is great incidentally

if you mean arcturus that one was available elsewhere a year or 2 ago but it rules and is nice to have it on spot

I am enjoying the new Ancient Methods album

silverfish, Friday, 21 September 2018 17:31 (six months ago) Permalink

The Ame album is a lot better than its cracked up to be.

Matt DC, Saturday, 22 September 2018 07:56 (six months ago) Permalink

Really miss the lush style of the Lord of the Isles LP, anything like that people want to recommend?

yeah, I've been listening to the dj richard album a lot lately.

silverfish, Monday, 29 October 2018 14:32 (four months ago) Permalink

I bought this album by Junes, it is "well vibey, mate" according to the local paper. I don't know if its a good fit for the lads that are doing it wrong thread but what is the worst that can happen?

the new skee mask album

oh this is quite nice, quite nice

j., Tuesday, 30 October 2018 02:25 (four months ago) Permalink

love the skee mask album!

Dan S, Tuesday, 30 October 2018 03:30 (four months ago) Permalink

another track from the Junes record, this one was a reluctant bench warmer at first, but since it got subbed on its been chipping in with assists from midfield with a rough hewn yet nonchalant air of a new signing from non-league

really like both of those Junes tracks

Dan S, Wednesday, 31 October 2018 06:05 (four months ago) Permalink

agree with the skee mask and dj richard praise!

bruce's sonder somatic is really doing it for me today as well

petey v, Wednesday, 31 October 2018 19:14 (four months ago) Permalink

Totally, Bruce album rules. But man am I having a hard time keeping all these “weird beats” threads straight ... so apologies if this has been posted elsewhere but the airmax 97 joint is awesome

this one is excellent as well.

Debut Quadruple LP from Lizz is something of a mixed bag - snippets from all tracks stitched together here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPMjVL5wsOU

not keen on first half at all! But theres some gold in the second half - the tracks at 21, 25, 28 and 35 mins are all great, some familiar faces in there too

saer, Saturday, 2 February 2019 13:23 (one month ago) Permalink

Nkisi is great. Heard one of those tracks on a mix, looking forward to checking out the rest.

anticipating this album. reminded me of huerco s and indeed, popped up on his excellent recent RA podcast

https://acemo.bandcamp.com/album/all-my-life-4

loving this, particularly title track, special, and where they at

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Sunday, 3 February 2019 06:57 (one month ago) Permalink

The Nkisi album is wicked. Does that count as deconstructed club music?

Also feeling Take Me With You by Anthony Naples, some lovely chilled out deep house/ambient/dubby vibes

that's you running into a vampire weekend gig, that is :p

calzino, Sunday, 3 February 2019 13:58 (one month ago) Permalink

it's a year old mix and not an album but I've been listening to this mix I found after hearing a track by hyph11e and wanting to track down more music: https://soundcloud.com/i-d-online-1/i-dj-scintii-b2b-hyph11e

also checking out the new Lee Gamble album that I didn't even realize was coming out until it popped up on my recommendations last friday!

I've discovered this "deconstructed club" genre via RYM, and like lots of it, but its really just IDM 3.0.

innocence adjacent (Sanpaku), Friday, 8 February 2019 21:38 (one month ago) Permalink

fair

mh, Friday, 8 February 2019 23:38 (one month ago) Permalink

not a big fan of either genre but must disagree

the late great, Friday, 8 February 2019 23:55 (one month ago) Permalink

Is deconstructed club music really a genre it seems like a weird strawman thing but idk

It just seems like there’s a lot of people doing a lot of things these days with club ways of making music, whether it’s neo breaks, fucked lo fi, or post bass weirdness ... maybe just a dialectical movement away from relentless grey tech house colliding with 90s revival? There’s no way Anthony Naples or acemo could be considered idm

macropuente (map), Saturday, 9 February 2019 00:28 (one month ago) Permalink

as far as 'deconstructed club' goes i think of the mumdance 'shared meanings' mix more than like lee gamble and PAN. someone like chevel is doing 'deconstructed club music' imo.

plus there's actual idm revival stuff now like the skee mask album

macropuente (map), Saturday, 9 February 2019 00:35 (one month ago) Permalink

One similarity is that no one doing it would apply that label to themselves, and if they are, it's probably trash.

change display name (Jordan), Saturday, 9 February 2019 00:39 (one month ago) Permalink

it's one of those catch all terms for "doing something kinda different" that misses the point by trying to fit a bunch of stuff into a demographic hole

macropuente (map), Saturday, 9 February 2019 00:47 (one month ago) Permalink

wait i thought deconstructed club was all that "ha dance" sounding breaking glass noises stuff

the late great, Saturday, 9 February 2019 00:47 (one month ago) Permalink

"shared meanings" ← thought this genre was called WEIGHTLESSSSS or something like that

the late great, Saturday, 9 February 2019 00:48 (one month ago) Permalink

Yeah, it was first coined to describe what Total Freedom, Lotic, Rabit, etc were doing. But it's since been absorbed as an influence, reacted against, transformed, etc and is essentially meaningless now.

(which is why I started the misfit club etc thread to bring those different strains of non-techno dance {and non-dance} music that I'm interested in)

change display name (Jordan), Saturday, 9 February 2019 01:05 (one month ago) Permalink

should a 2019 thread be made? meaningless beats 2019? or something?

until then, appreciating this rollover from late 2018 gonzo mid-fi post night slugs + breaks thing
