I'm just happy that "daddy-o" is back. I knew if I never stopped using it, it would eventually come back.

I was once recording in a studio in downtown LA before it became yet another hipster hell, and the owner engineer dude (who was pushing 50 and wore tight jeans and Converse Chuck T's) always said everything was RAD - it was hilarious coming from him cos he was a Santa Cruz skate punk type who just stayed 13 forever. From that day on I swore to devote my life to using the most colorful out of date language, cos you know, its like groovy - dig?

I like how this thread simultaneously became about darkwave, what the op was actually talking about when he or she said darkwave (synthwave, vaporware or whatever), and dongs!
Good work gearslutz.

Allright, to add to the confusion about dongs i post a vid that's rather shoegaze, but some of you may like the music and if there's so much FX on the guitars they will pass as synths anyway, right...?

With your screen/artist name, you'd only be one letter shy of owning said genre

The dongs are a lot shorter in cold wave for obvious reasons.

It was a thing in 1995, so maybe it'll make a comeback :

Create it and they will come. Won't even go the pun route here.

Seriously, any name can be a genre spinoff. Happens too often.

No evidence of moaning. Too much fun for some I guess.

With regard to the development of vocal styles in the course of the evolution of EDM, I remember in the 1990s, a lot of folks were struggling with what kind of vocals would/could/should be married to electronic dance/club music.

A lot of folks couldn't seem to settle on anything, so for years we saw track after track interspersed with 'found' sound drops a la My Life in the Bush of Ghosts -- a trope that was fun when first played around with by underground radio DJs in the late 60s and early 70s and then taken to its 'logical conclusion' with the archetypal Bush of Ghosts Byrne/Eno effort. (And increasingly crushingly boring after, always seemed to me, though I did my share of it in the 1980s, mostly via tape rather than the soon-but-not-yet-ubiquitous sampler. )

Anyhow, when so many EDM types decided that various vocal tuning approaches used as stylistic motifs was the way to go, it pretty much pushed me out the back door, since the peculiar sonics of most tuning artifacts are extremely unpleasant to me. (In the worst period of top 40 hard tuning, I would wear earbuds to the supermarket to try to drown out the keening A-T coming like a distant drone over the PA, and even that was barely effective. Something about that sound makes my ears nuts.)

Or at least start with one. (Not to go all Realm of the Senses. DEFINITELY do NOT look that one up at work!!!)



At first I thought maybe the thread title was about the search for missing smoking accessories.
