whats the deal with this stuff

deej, Wednesday, 3 December 2008 10:52 (nine years ago) Permalink

i know this should be played out to even talk about at this point, except that this stuff is still everywhere, and has been sorta mutating into this gross, largely un-fun monster that gets played at a bunch of different places, at least in chicago, and tons of djs play this stuff. heres what i said on rolling ringtone:

its weird none of this shit seems particularly fun to dance to -- im used to old-ilx-style debates about dance music where everybody talks in reductive terms about a black-white polarity between funkless trance and groovin disco-house or whatever, and although i reject the simple and wrongheaded binary opposition there i have to admit it has sorta subconsciously informed the way i look at a lot of dance, even if in the most general, so-many-exceptions-to-the-rule terms.

this stuff though has really done a service to this sort of offensive race-informed discourse by removing it -- so many shitty djs of all races in this scene, and it is a genuinely diverse scene .... and sometimes it'll have good ideas and sometimes it will have shitty ones, but the worst is this BMORE BREAK x BORING GRATING SYNTH MELODY thing. and this isnt some lol im old bullshit i dont think -- this feels different, like i 'get' whats fun to dance to when listening to a bmore mix, i 'get' house music (obviously) but this stuff seems sheerly irritating when its all thrown together, like there's no vibe, no attempt to really make anything happen, just to signify 'progress' by with this cobbled together frankenstein dance music

like the 'problem' doesnt seem like a lack of 'funk,' but just a lack of quality -- unless im just unaware of all the classic blogmore remix classics. Is this stuff gonna be repackaged and sold in ten years and canonized and all that

deej, Wednesday, 3 December 2008 10:56 (nine years ago) Permalink

This is something i noticed when working on a club night which went from late electroclash to bloghouse/global dance eclecticism (we had kid sister, buraka etc) and all these disparate musics were getting so similar it had been mixed into a sort of orrible brown paste. theres no chance of this toss coming back. all the cheap external hard drives this music lives on will have perished and all the DJs hearing will have gone from all the jacked up 192kps serato harshness. its all just middle class indie kids with broadband trying to outdo each other with how many obscure black peoples musics from all over the world they can play semi ironically

straightola, Wednesday, 3 December 2008 11:08 (nine years ago) Permalink

the sad thing about this shit is now a lot of the o.g. Baltimore club producers/labels are starting to cater to that scene more overtly, whether by signing or endorsing more out-of-town new jacks or making more synthy Euro-style tracks, and sometimes it sounds cool but mostly it's depressing. at least that's the sense I'm getting, I try to avoid the post-Hollertronix miasma as much as possible.

hay icecraem and max im not trynna make a thread for complaining sorry if u got the wrong idea altho i do appreciate your keepin it positive in the face of "i do hate those frat boys!" potential of this thread!!

that said im asking a real serious question about what the the deal is w/ this stuff musically, or what its trying to go for and whether its actually going to be 'remembered' u know what i mean?? and while i dont know anyone personally who is real real into this stuff but i seem to run into it pretty often anyway -- it seems like the kind of thing DJs are just 'into' and theres nothing that can be done. i tend to avoid clubs that play stuff like this but it still gets slipped in, even DJs who start off playing rap music end the night w/ this kind of shit.

honestly i have no idea what songs are 'worst' or 'best' and honestly its not about it being too abrasive -- there's much more abrasive dance music out there -- its just about it being not fun to dance to

^^^Heres one of the songs as we were talking about it on rolling ringtone

nah it was some local dudes (who started off with a nice rap set btw)

some know what you dude last summer (Jordan), Wednesday, 3 December 2008 21:35 (nine years ago) Permalink

Umm, well, I guess I technically DJ this stuff.

In my sets its a lot less Baltimore and Juke and a lot more abrasive electrohouse, but same difference.

Artists I like in this style.

Santiago and Bushido (technically fidget)
every fifth Crookers track (definitely bloghouse)
some James Amato stuff, basically a lot of stuff on Potty Mouth

And I've been mixing it with LA style electro-noize, like LA Riots.

I play this, because it works.

It seems to be very big in Madison (in a limited mostly college kid way).

Siah Alan, Wednesday, 3 December 2008 22:38 (nine years ago) Permalink

do you project the accompanying videos at your nights? that's how it's done at this one night here (DC) and it doesn't help matters imo. i'll dance to this stuff (abrasive electrohouse, the black kids (great name!!!!!), basically everything on here) because the whole room gets dancing and there's an open bar and, well, i like dancing...but it's not even beatmatched?! do you beatmatch?? please tell me you beatmatch.

W i l l, Wednesday, 3 December 2008 22:48 (nine years ago) Permalink

I beatmatch pretty well, and I tend to mix in a lot of older electro-house as well. Stuff like Black Strobe in 2004, older Zombie Nation, Tiga, even some High NRG. Whatever I can get away with basically.

I've been mostly playing at house parties, so no screens.

There's a pretty regular night here called Indie Queer. Its not bad, wouldn't mind playing there.

yeah the idea of, admit it, big beat, with taylor dayne and rap choruses that everybody knows on top, with some lol90s pop dance thrown in every now and again, sounds great to me. but it's all centered on that justice sound which i don't really like at all. and i'm old.

They should try for the Montmartre, its definitely the sort of thing that goes over well there.

A lot of the people who play Indie Queer have things going in Milwaukee too, I don't really know the venues though.

Siah Alan, Wednesday, 3 December 2008 23:07 (nine years ago) Permalink

I think I first decided to play this stuff when I was up in the Twin Cities at the First Avenue. I went there to see Paco Osuna play on the same night as one of the Too Much Love parties. Paco was fine, but the party downstairs had about 5 times as many people there.

I'm like note to self: indie electro/bloghouse/whatever more likely to bring people to venue than Euro DJ.

I saw Jesse Rose play the Smartbar to like 50 people, so even fidget doesn't really have that big a following around here. I like deep house a lot, but it doesn't interest 99% of the people I hang out with.

Siah Alan, Thursday, 4 December 2008 00:00 (nine years ago) Permalink

i appreciate the honest answers esp since folks were clowning this stuff & the ppl who listen to it upthread --

but does this mean the appeal to you is pretty much audience-based, you dont really like to listen to it much? Have you noticed when you do a party or whatever that if you play traditional house people just arent feeling it?

deej, Thursday, 4 December 2008 00:09 (nine years ago) Permalink

I've tried mixing in some other stuff, I got people dancing to some UK Funky house and some Kerri Chandler at one point. But I don't even try that sort of thing unless its after 1:30 or 2 am, the people who actually like dancing will usually stick around for stuff thats a little outside their comfort zone.

I'm kind of torn about the first question, I actually find myself liking this music the more I play it.

I would have considered it hellish to have a Chromeo song stuck in my head even a year ago.

Now its not that bad, I'm basically just trying to find a midway point between my tastes and the audiences.

(I do get sick of the constant requests for Daft Punk songs though).

cant believe this formulation is a decade old:

My theory is that 2008 breaks down like this:

1) Too much of what is good and popular is not populist (nu-deep-minimal; space disco/balearic for the most part; upmarket dubstep)
2) Too much of what is good and populist is not popular (UK funky house)
3) Too much of what is popular and populist is not good (blog-house/frankendance; downmarket dubstep)

Here's another little time capsule from upthread:

If anything this stuff is probably the North American version of grime. It has a lot of the same weaknesses and will probably have about the same longevity as a genre. I can't really get upset about this stuff because it is going to go away as quickly as it came.

I don't think the formulation really applies anymore because the whole notion of scene allegiance within dance music has broken down further since 2008. At least as far as I can tell (and note I am now 35 so perhaps am not the best person to ask) less people than ever are really invested in organising themselves into distinct audiences around particular sub-genres. This was already going on of course and really you could say that dance music has simply followed rock music's lead - rock music was already in this state a decade ago.

There will always be exceptions of hardcore faithfuls, of course. But the difference I discern now is that a lot of the long tails from what was about ten years ago have basically converged into a kind of broad, stable disco-house-techno continuum where most people are into bits of everything along that spectrum and all that is really left to judge is the thoughtfulness or charisma with which particular stylistic narratives are executed.

The other big intervening development obviously was EDM, but I think people miss some of the nuances of EDM's impact: it was and is so obviously crass that I feel like it has had the perverse effect of pushing a lot of people who might otherwise be (and historically were) into relatively-crass material like blog-house or etc. towards more tasteful material.

In respect of this frankendance specifically I just don't hear much that really sounds like it now, which is probably a function of the above: I feel like much of the audience for it has basically split three ways between EDM, hip hop and techno, i.e. they've chosen to go with whichever frankenstein bodypart they liked most rather than stick with the whole corpse.
