Mates, this Takecha record looks like a solid bit of January transfer window business!

i've never heard of Beatdown as a genre before! i like to learn one new thing a day.

scott seward, Wednesday, 13 December 2017 20:15 (eleven months ago) Permalink

does the name just come from this comp?

more or less

the late great, Wednesday, 13 December 2017 20:19 (eleven months ago) Permalink

the guys on that comp coined the term to describe their style - which is how the comp got its name - and it caught on among sympathetic producers

I don't think I've ever noticed the genre names on discogs before!

saer, Wednesday, 13 December 2017 20:28 (eleven months ago) Permalink

genre names are designed to make you think bad records are good and good records are bad, its trickery and obfuscation

straw poll: new juan atkins vocals on moodymann’s “no ufos”. classic or tragic?

i thought i was going to hate the luciano mix because lol tribal bongo minimal but it's actually pretty rad! has kind of a classic boompty beat and just the right amount of electro lock and pop and is hypnotically minimal (in terms of structure) as opposed to annoyingly minimal (no awful mid 2000s computer sound palette)

the late great, Saturday, 6 January 2018 00:45 (eleven months ago) Permalink

also there's cool submerged chimes

it's a shame i had to buy the OG again!

I think this is my favourite record of last year, and i forgot to nominate it in the poll

its Sir Benni Steil

DJI, Tuesday, 13 February 2018 23:22 (nine months ago) Permalink

Cool, DJI, will do.

re: the Moodymann remix of No Ufos mentioned upthread, I think the new vocals are a bummer. They sounded fine in the sample but I was let down when I got the thing in the mail. This is okay with me b/c I didn't have the original, though, and that Luciano version is surprisingly tasty.

davey, Wednesday, 14 February 2018 00:24 (nine months ago) Permalink

i'm more into the vocals now than i was before!

the late great, Wednesday, 14 February 2018 00:45 (nine months ago) Permalink

yes they are groaningly corny ... but so are most detroit techno vocals? and so are the o.g. version vocals. so they have been growing on me.

I might play it out tomorrow and see how the crowd reacts.

MikoMcha, Saturday, 17 February 2018 00:34 (nine months ago) Permalink

ahh sorry i didn't play it last night after all. as i was forgetting there was a love theme for the night so i didn't think it'd slot in with my set. :/ i got the best reactions to older bobbins though, so maybe it would've gone over well anyway. shoot.

davey, Sunday, 18 February 2018 04:55 (nine months ago) Permalink

Check bobbins of the past thread for some great vocals from Basile Boli and Chrissy Waddle!

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

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

MikoMcha, Tuesday, 27 February 2018 14:59 (nine months ago) Permalink

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...

MikoMcha, Thursday, 1 March 2018 11:03 (nine months ago) Permalink

vibes unlimited

i've been wanting to pick up the specter record from the sound signature shop, been hesitating because i'm not sure if i want the dego & kaidi record too. any opinions on that one?

Ahh, yes. I've been enjoying this Janeret record from 2016: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ga4PY-_OWoM

new SW. is sneakily out on wax. Found it sneakily in the new bins at Amoeba in LA. Not online yet though. Quite good!! very richly layered, but too short at 30 mins. Side B is more bobbins, side A is more spacey

octobeard, Thursday, 1 November 2018 01:22 (one month ago) Permalink

nicely done, i had to send away to berlin for mine

i'm not crazy about it yet but then again it took awhile for me to "crack the code" w/ sued 20

the late great, Thursday, 1 November 2018 04:13 (one month ago) Permalink

it's another one that perpetually seems to be at the wrong speed

i'm actually still listening to this SW. from last year ... like, a lot ...

More Phil Evans & Tiago Walter

bit disappointed with the rest of the album, but this has a bright 3pm matchday feel

and Tiago with Tom Ries

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

Nascar Nights! Great title!

neither of these is the one I'm thinking of, there's one I've heard a lot of late but can't remember it but feels like it would be a Phil Evans or Tiago Walter record. These will do in the meantime!
