I definitely prefer the latter out of the two, way more energetic.
I think there is something quite interesting about the way that what you know about a piece of music has such an effect on what you expect from it and ultimately how you hear it. And I also find it interesting that music made from different scenes and with professedly different aims and so on, can in fact coincide and ultimately be quite similar.
And going back to what I waffled on about at the start, I like putting those kinds of things together when I find them. Though maybe not these two cos they are too similar.
Whatever, I'm always wishing people said more about the tunes they dump wordlessly into the tune of the day thread but maybe I got a but carried away there...
At the same time, the first one somehow reminds me of hearing DJ Marcelle play at MOT in South London a few weeks ago. A few of my friends (mainly a fine art/choreography crowd) left after something around an hour due to "not feeling it".
It took me a moment to understand why, but it was that type of very psychy- kraut-like party DJ-ing, where several gramophone records playing all at once would be left for around ten minutes, then a cut would happen and another collage would start. All SUPER fucking intense, mind you, if you are willing to get into it, but it was far from what is understood as busy dj-ing nowadays aka dropping the hook of another banger every 30 seconds.
Progressions were usually quite minimal or should I say, more imagined rather than real, which I appreciated heavily.
