    Default The 2010s ey?

    For me the 90s were my teenage-decade, the 2000s my twens and now the 2010s the decade of my personal age being in the 30s. Meaning, I had stopped following trends and (new) genres avidly at some point roughly 10 years ago. However I kinda tried to keep myself informed still.

    And from that perspective, the 2010s were the decade of musical mediocracy for me - most of the current stuff I listened to during the now soon coming to an end-decade of the 2010s was decent, good, but not exciting. Except for my personal musical hobby - still avidly following Jungle (the breakbeat n bass-oriented stuff well outta the spotlight, still churning out tons of good stuff...) - there was little really catching my attention. Footwork for a while around 2012. The 2010s however delivered the most horrible music I have ever heard though, - "EDM" -an aural catastrophy of biblical proportions. I used to get quite entertained by "Die Antwoord" for a while as well.

    What i really rate about your taste is that when it comes to dance music you're just into the hits man, but you have a connoisseur taste in ambient/experimental electronics, indian classical, ocora and all that archival stuff.

    i think in some senses thats a good way to be. otherwise you can be like my really dull mates who will start going into why a 2013 dubstep production is different to a 2015 one and it's like despairing fucking hell you really love the whole idea of club showbiz don't you. punch em in the face. it's a bit like corpsey's mates with techno. oh hang on i have an idea...

    Kind of dread to think what a circa 2012 Oneman set would sound like to me now, even though I'd probably have really liked it at the time. Sometimes when going through tunes I'll come across some post-dubstep/post-funky track from around that time and I'd say at least half the time it really hasn't aged well.



    Although I actually like a fair bit of Jam City's output still, this track is just...

    Yeah all that shit has aged horribly

    Even at the time, the disjunct between what was getting praised to the skies and the actual music was glaring.

    Joy Orbison, Footcrab, Girl Unit 'Wut', etc. That Ramadanman tune 'Work them'.

    I recall people being super hyped about these tunes and beginning to feel alienated from the taste of that community.

    I don't mind some Night Slugs stuff though and I'm thankful for Kelela.

    Was interesting in retrospect too cos although it was called 'post dubstep' it was really about a lot of dance music (recent and distant past) filtering through the sorts of people who were into dubstep, or at least finding some reception there. So you had stuff that channelled grime, rnb, techno, etc. Often in a sort of half-baked, not as good as the real thing way.

    BUT it's easy to be critical

    And it was a reflection of genuine excitement and I suppose the internet making it seem like everything could merge

    Whereas I nowadays feel a bit more like barty with his multimonoculture yearnings.

    Agree with the post-dubstep stuff, seems like allot of people got caught up in it but you won't hear anyone raving about most of those super hyped records now... it was almost like an aftershock/microcosm of dubsteps meteoric rise and fall. I remember even then feeling mostly underwhelmed by it all when I actually went out to see it in the club.

    Some of its still stands for me though.. for example tunes by DVA, Cooly G, Roska from that time have aged well I think.

    I'd stopped going out and record collecting by then so that probably affects how memorable everything was.

    Being memorable isn't always so necessary The feeling behind it was was there, the production not so much with a few exceptions . Opposite to my thoughts on where dnb went. The 20s I can see being about generative music, Eno leading the way.

    I do find it baffling that people rightly dismiss the majority of post-dubstep but can't tell me one deep tech record that stands out. some people equated hc continuum with anything working class/lumpen = good and anything made by students = bad. i mean, i can understand where that sentiment comes from, i just wouldn't use it as the definitive aesthetic barometer. I also don't agree with the sentiment, musical scenes can't really be reduced to one class apart from traditional folk music which was mainly agricultural peasantry.

    see i don't think those records sound much different to jam city or boddika, just more big room.
