    Dissensus without Youtube clips

    So, of course I'd never check Dissensus from work, but there are some occasions when computers I use regularly don't allow streaming Flash stuff... so no Youtube clips. It's quite intriguing what proportion of threads contain a whole lot of blank posts... Some threads there's certainly no...

    Remix I did up on Boomkat - Fat Freddy's Drop - The Raft (Jet Jaguar Remix)

    Hey all, I did a remix for a local act called Fat Freddy's Drop, which I'm pretty proud of. It's a digital-only thing, but if you buy the 7" from them directly you get my mix as part of a download package thrown in...

    The Mount Kimbie album

    Thoughts? I like it a lot, so am trying to avoid the hype. It's not amazing, not my favourite release I've heard in the past 12 months or anything, but I do reckon it's a very solid debut. It reminds me a lot of laidback electronic listening stuff from about 10 years ago. I don't know if I...

    Colour grading = movie equivalent of the volume wars?

    So there's a common complaint regarding popular music that everything's getting mastered increasingly loud, usually referred to as the volume war or loudness war. I was thinking the other day that using computers to grade the images in contemporary film seems like a similar complaint /...

    Kohei Nawa reminds me of the animals described in The Crystal World

    Well, this stuff with beads. Check some out... Even the blurb at the page describing the effect he's seeking sounds like Ballard.

    Ceelo mixed by Dabrye

    I mentioned this new, free compilation in the wonky thread, but this particular tune is the stand-out and I reckon worth its own thread. Not much going on, not much to say about it, but it's just right, I reckon. Most of the...

    Which odd band sampled 'The Message' back in the day?

    It's driving me nuts, have heard some weird instrumental with samples of Grandmaster Flash in it, but can't remember who it's by. The Residents? Nurse With Wound? Someone superficially unlikely-sounding.

    Ambient jungle = best dance music ever

    In the Woebot thread someone linked to a FACT interview with the man, where he says: As a soft-cock from way back, I was pretty impressed by someone's willingness to say this. For all the talk of stuff like "feminine pressure" there does still seem to be this desire for shit to be (only) tuff...

    How did old Harmonizers / Pitch-shifters work?

    So pitchshifters like Eventide's old Harmonizer have been around for decades. Old octave pedals for guitars, likewise. How did the earliest ones work? Have they always used sampling / granular synthesis technology? I got the feeling the earliest ones must be analogue, based on their age...

    DJ Koze and his psychedelic techno

    Been really enjoying DJ Koze's 'Reincarnations', collected remixes on Get Physical. I think it's a lot stronger than his collections of original stuff. He tends to do stuff with pitch-bent or unstable sounds, a lot of sped up or slowed down voices, reversed bits and a distinctive mix of...

    Byrne & Eno - Everything That Happens Will Happen Today

    So there's a new David Byrne & Brian Eno album. Physical CDs aren't out yet, and only available via their website, which may be part of why there's not much talk of this. Very much snuck up on me. It's by no means a follow up to 'My Life In the Bush of Ghosts', music-wise... just a bunch of...

    Wordsound connected to theAgriculture?

    In the thread on Sensational some were asking after what happened to Wordsound, to illbient stuff. I always thought these guys took over where Wordsound left off: Dunno if there's a connection in terms of who runs it. That new DJ Rupture comp /...
