Producers. The best names of late

So there is a lot of gear talk but what about musical influences ?

As Ive been garnering advice left right and centre, how about sharing those influences you luck up to. Keep it to recent releasers if possible.

Recently I have been obsessed with SBTRKT. Album is amazing production is fantastic.

I've been digging Shed's releases the last few years. Great old school-influenced techno with a modern twist. I wish I could follow him in his studio for a day, I got no idea how to get that wall of sound type of sound he has.

Vince Watson just recently put out an album of rare, deliciously melodic, soulful techno. He's a master of his game, and a proper composer, not just a class-act producer.

Kuniaki Takenaga has put out two albums of blistering industrial-ritual-battle-sci-fi-godknowswhat-techno that are fascinating.

Nova and Kindred both by Burial in the space of a couple of months... exceptional work, make it much easier to forget that bro-step even exists. His atmospheric garage-dub-step style is unique and compelling.

I:Cube is by far the biggest influence for me.
His new album's gonna be amazing.

Ame and Pepe Bradock are big favorites too.
these people make the most interesting house and techno stuff out there imo.

(Shed is deffinetly sick as well, but he's a bit minimal for me most of the times. Loved the WAX series tho)

Shifted, Dettmann, ASC and Lucy are on a streak lately. Incredible sound design and raw energy though keeping the soul in music. Really worth checking out those guys and their work.

Please people, could you post Soundcloud/Youtube links to tracks that are the best (in your opinion) to discover these artists you mention?

Care to share some great stuff he's done? I always thought he was a bit average. A few good tracks, a few good remixes, but not a great amount of quality output.

Pepe Bradock is great, agreed. Looking forward to his new album, already have the first EP from it.

Have Ame done anything worthwhile since Rej though? Looking at their discogs page, there's not much stuff of note in the last 5 years. Mifune and Nia are my favorites, but those were 8 years ago... oh, how the time flies.

Tough one. cant really name any good tunes by them, they're all GREAT (just as with ICube and Pepe)
Their latest big tune was Envision remix, it was almost as big as Rej. they can do very deep, or classic detroit technoy. you name it! their style progressed a lot since the those tunes...


check anything on innervisions records - its all very deep and very different sounding stuff..

edit: check out this mix by Gilb'r - its mostly unreleased I:Cube and Chateau Flight tunes.

i was really into him a few years back but not really feel those tracks. he's gone a bit to far with the vocals for my liking.



i'm really into the NYC deep house guys like Fred P, Levon Vincent, Jus Ed, DJ Qu and Joey Anderson.

some other favorites are STL, Patrice Scott, John Heckle, Peverelist and Miles Sagnia

I like Shed as Head High or WK (with another dude). 90s style.

One hears Pete Rock is pretty hep.

As for my musical influences, it ranges from..



to..



back to..



and back up to...



And pretty much everything inbetween, apart from country and western and kiddy pop. I could post videos for hours listing influences.

Tbqh, I don't feel influenced by any other new artists.

that's the thing, too retro and i stop listening. Datassette's more emotional early90s funky Rephlex-y, Warpy feely.
Will check I:Cube's new album though, thanks dood!

Now this!

Well actually its the vocals are I like! Though admittedly it does bring into more "home listening" territory.

Now this!
i dont mean retro.
retro futuristic! thats something completly different!
much like Datassette's music but more complex (more layers and fxs etc)
this one's a perfect example:

the production on this tune is amazing btw. just check how it builds up, the melodies etc... crazy.
people like maceo plex, cats and dogs, soulclap etc. trying to make similar kinda sound, but they can't touch the frenchman!
