also 2step was way more mellow than jeff mills if we're being real, thankfully that's no longer my greatest hit. gabber terrorism is fun but not all the time, sometimes you gotta be sophisticated or sulky for the ladies. blissblogger even saw mills in 1999. said it was like having lightning injected into him or something like that. whether he found it exhausting is another matter but...
to be on topic i'm quite taken w how physical and insistently bounce this one feels but it does just Shuffle About and not have real forward momentum, this is the first thing they put out 12 years ago so not super New https://iliantape.bandcamp.com/album/it001-lee-van-dowski-dachshund-confusion-is-sex
if its not clear by now i dont really know dick about dance music so naming something to compare this w is currently out of depth
this bit third posted earlier feels like its made of the same stuff but goes places. phylyps trak feels like its made of the same stuff but goes sideways, or rolling like a huge empty can down a hill https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fo7JYjx6L_o
is there a name for this specific style btw? something i can dig for by searching for that specific tag?
This brings me such nostalgic 90s tech melancholic vibes that it makes me tear up. Gesloten Cirkel however is a completely different beast despite also running a retro electro vibe his stuff is much idiosyncratic and a true auteur which is what we need. Enough of that scenius bs. Ilian Tape is a decent label, still and can make the moody boys dance a little bit more than usual.
