    that'd be more of a drum kit bias than anything. i've never particularly gone and listened intently to other types of drums, only the kit.

    i don't know much about islamic drum stuff but i listen to indian bits and pieces every now and then. tabla's are gorgeous texturally, but the rhythms being played never jumped out at me as being particularly novel. more rockist than dancehall, drill or jungle.

    There's not much explaining going on is there, just loads of tunes from random times and places. If anything it adds to the confusion or lack of knowledge. We know what electro sounds like but surely the question is why? How did it develop? Where and when and why there and then etc? What's good about it? That's what I want from an explanation.

    how can you say that if you've listened to Zakir hussein. Rock rhythm is very simple and uncultivated, it's basically a 4-4 with a downbeat on the 2-4. Zakir goes into 2s divided into a 16 section.

    as for novel.



    If dance music producers made tracks with a rhythm like this djs would be out of a job. this is pure anatolian rave.

    We did that in the other thread tbh. a certain synthetic and roboticness that flirts between being very chilly but also can be quite warm simultaneously. more 80s synth funk melody driven than it's techno counterpart which is the retro kitch luca is eluding to i suppose (you're on the same page as kirk degiorgio from 2001 there mate lol.) In terms of progression there have been attempts to techno-ify it and phil klein aka bass junkie made some electro gabba hybrids. otherwise its generally a scene with its own internal purism. nothing wrong with that I suppose, just as with any other purist scene, things need to be mixed up a bit. What's good about it? At the best of times it can literally sound like music from outer space rather than just a bunch of floating pads. that's at its best. it can also sound like the clonk of machines being humanised. you don't get this in Mayday for E which is more about the dreamlike state. where as with that dexter d-funked stuff there's an actual emotional connection to the clangs inside a factory. Mayday is more like sitting in ur room and looking at industrialisation and dislocation from ur window. which in a way makes his music more powerful than a majority of revivalist electro simply because its trying to marry the internal state with the dance. whereas drexciya aside neo-electro is mostly designed for hard techno djs to drop in their sets. obviouly there are melodic electro producers like plant43 and e.r.p but they are more live acts.

    It's caught between deciding if it wants to be more like techno or hip-hop. Or it was. Techno definitely won cos it's gone from like 90 to 140bpm presumably - like you say - so it can mix into techno sets.

    Certainly that is the case. although the early electro was more like 110-120, but hip hop was generally faster in the 80s anyway.

    in terms of whether hip hop or techno won, well, put yo hood up is essentially electro in my book.
