    if it wasn't obvious, the title is a reference to this thread, so the idea is to think of hip hop--80s in particular--in a similar light. but more generally I wanted to see if I could draw any leads (music or other knowledge) on this era from the collective dissensus encyclopedia.

    I think the similarities are in how pop music hooks and musical sources are juxtaposed and combined with "insane sonics" enabled by scratching, distortion, and edits, and also all the rhythm ideas kodwo eshun talks about. if anything this music at its best feels freer that jungle to me, since any element can be as fluid and kinetic as breaks can.

    this is particularly the case in mixes, for example:



    also Corpsey, in case it wasn't clear my last post was a joke. I brought up autechre obviously, and I always enjoy reading your contributions here and in other threads.

    another great twist you get in this stuff is that sometimes pop vocal hooks are deployed as disorienting bursts of noise rather than to create a contrasting moment of warmth and serenity. can be beautiful in a harsh, futuristic way. definitely feels to me like a post-soul move.

    listen to the dive bombing effect at 3:00-3:40


    or 1:15-1:30

    There's the hyper-staccato beats an scratches with extreme contrasts of reverb space:





    Sometimes I think the "golden age" was just a humanist deviation and must be ruthlessly suppressed.

    Default at least listen to this


    for the first 30 seconds you can hear "owner of a lonely heart"--then it goes through a transformation as """insane""" as anything in electroacoustic. can never believe what I'm hearing.

    That's not true mvuent. He is scared of your potential apotheosis. He thinks it's a zero sum game. That your rise means less shine for him.

    I lik rip the cut a lot but I'm 39 same age as hiphop itself so the electro stuff in particular still has a frisson but I understand why it sounds corny to people in their 20s
