Xhin is sheer madness. I love the whole aesthetic these guys are pushing; compressed dub or whatever you wanna call it. Loopy, filtered, hypnotic, mindbending techno.

Exactly it's compressed but not so much to the point that it looses dynamics. For me it sounds really wide open and easy on the ear but also punchy.
Yeah I'm really glad people are getting into this sound.

It's like ambiental for me but with some cojones

Also The Field really helped open this path to the more nu-raveish crowd.

I like these artists a lot because they tend to love all sounds both new and old but also remain on a well paved path from the masters before them.

For me it retains all the good things from modern production (punchyness, movement, sound design, vsts, ableton-like livesets, experimental) but also has some of that oldschool 3d sound with depth saturation dynamics and warmth. They use a lot of analog stuff at the mastering stage with really high end compressors and great processing.

I was doing similar stuff in my dj sets with regular techno/minimal/electro but taking it into this direction with lot's of substractive filtering and layering other types of percussion and effects ...just putting out nice hypnotic sounds out there... as much as I love all the LinnDrum ,909 808 etc sounds stuff that sounds "stock" or "straight from the machine" without artistic,creative or context dependent input really doesn't takes me that far away... I get a "not that sound again" feeling.

...but people around here were too much into fun, melodic, popish new disco..... while fun and also myself like it a lot for a night out sometimes or just home listening, it really got me out of this type of djing (actually made me take a break) because I really couldn't just mix stuff I didn't feel to mix just to fit the norm as there are ppl already doing that. So I usuall end up with 40% of the crowd staying and really having an amazing time while the other % go home feeling underwhelmed... not really any middle ground.

Although a event I had last month which had a very good warming djs and some lesser dark music before me, but in the same vein, actually prepared the people and it was a blast so I have high hopes for new events.

I've been on a vocal music kick

Fever Ray, love the tuned percussion on this album



The beautiful and talented Marina and the Diamonds. Which is really just Marina the singer/keyboard player/writer. Subversive pop!



And of course my current fascination, the brilliance of Waddy Jones and Yolandi Visser - Die Antwoord, MaxNormal.TV, The Constructus Corporation. They are exactly what the Hip Hop genre needs right now.
NSFW! FYI this song talks about tribal circumcision among the Xhosa people of South Africa. Also it references the Thundercats!

I've just discovered 'Moon wiring Club'. Holy s**t! That is some interesting & cool stuff. Apparently the guy makes all his music on a copy of Music running on the Playstation 2 along with some MTV music making thing. Fantastic heh

Latest XX album, as well as the Biggie/XX mashup version.

Latest Kanye West album

EL-P Justin Bieber remix, which is just too funny and a banging track as well.

The Glitch Mob "Drive it Like You Stole It"

Boy Eats Drum Machine "Hoop + Wire"

Ive been listening to a couple of Resident Advisor sets recently..

This ASC set was a real sleeper. I had it for a couple of weeks and wasnt in the right headspace for it, but once i was it was amazing. Sort of dub/d&b/electronica with great atmospherics
RA Podcast: RA.233 ASC

and this one by perc is amazing too...great pounding techno
RA Podcast: RA.237 Perc

Loving the lo-fi production and twisted lyrics. Great little slice of rock n roll.
