I had a brief but good affair with Chemical Bros. Don't really listen to them now though. I've seen them twice. Once at festival and a 7,000 capacity warehouse. That venue was too big though. It didn't encapsulate the sound like smaller clubs. At least my German friend got us free tickets for it. Everyone was just chomping pills. ph34r.gif

I love the track Got Glint. Anyone know this track? You should get it. The chorus line reminds me of the tune from Duran Durans, Save a Prayer.

UNKLE are great, went to see James Lavelle recently, and whilst it was good, just found myself getting annoyed for his whole set wishing that it was UNKLE.

I sleep, breathe, eat, sh*t, piss, listen and live house, electro, progressive, dance, etc. Love it to death. BUT, 99.9% of the people you've listed I've never heard of. So, I've got some stuff to look up.

Anyways, this is the sh*t I listen to daily;
Dani Moreno (The Cock/El Gallo Maximo), David Guetta, Benassi Bros., Peter Gelderblom, Mylo, Sander Kleinenberg, Kaskade, Martin Solveig, Tiga, Bob Sinclar, Wally Lopez, The Egg, Stylophonic, Roger Sanchez, Outwork, Jesse Garcia, Jerry Ropero, Gabi Newman, Eric Prydz, David Amo, Julio Navas, Axwell, Haji & Emanuel and much more..

Found some rather cool noisy/ambient music from one of the men behind Darkthrone.
Neptune Towers - Caravans To Empire Algol

Quite cool sounding so far, but its ambient noise so most people won't get it. He's got some cool subtle synth lines on this first song.

I must agree, CB really are awesome, never been into em much at all, just loving the odd song like Under the Influence, thanks to Wipeout for getting me into that.

New pics from INDEX (sorry, I went to Cascada tounge.gif )



'twas a nice live act though, she's hot as hell and apart from the girl I had to help to carry out because she got sick or so it was a nice hour of music to be honest... with 2100 People in one Music Area tounge.gif

Also met some Englishmen from Portsmouth who went all the way to Schüttorf, Germany to see Cascada tounge.gif And they used the Swimming Pool as well...

Looked like a nice party vAlk.

So I just popped in to ask if anyone listens to Autechre? I've got the album Bike (i think it's called). It's pretty good.

I have this CD from Neptune Towers, Transmissions from Empire Algol, which is quite good.

Aphex Twin put out a couple of ambient albums, little bit beat driven than most ambient music though.

Ulver's had a few ambientish albums.

Ummmmm thats all the ambient I can think of right now.

New album you guys need to hear, well I've actually had it for a few now but haven't listened to it for a while till now.
Mindless Faith - Momentum, its like industrial dance music, its awsomeness.

Never heard of Autechre, whats it like?

well one nation 2007 is a quality CD pack. i'm also downloading random concept vol. 8 & 9 right now, i'll give my verdict in a bit but from what i've heard its some good stuff.

some good DJs:

Nicky Blackmarket (going to see him next month biggrin.gif )
Andy C
Hype
Friction
Fabio
Grooverider
Mampi swift
Hazard
Goldie
Fresh
Bailey
Shy FX

some good MCs (if u like the live stuff)

Shabba
Skibadee
Eksman
Herbzie
Det
IC3
Fearless
Bassman
Fatman D

Some good artists (if u want "instrumental" drum & bass)

Roni Size (and Reprazent)
High Contrast
DJ Hype
Shy FX (the album "Diary of a digital soundboy" may be a good starting point for drum and bass... its quite commercial sounding)
Clipz


i would also recommend the album "Drum & Bass Essentials (3CD)" if u are trying to get a feel for the genre.

They're all great Drum & Bass artists. If you can get your hands on 10 Years of Drum & Bass mixed by DJ Randall - it has most of those artist on it. Good for D&B newbies like me! Had the pleasure of catching Grooverider this summer icon14.gif

@W-J-W: Sounds excellent. Is it a one day festival?

I'm torn apart for the 15th of Sept. Electronic Drum percussionist pioneer and ex-member of Kraftwerk is playing here in Dublin..


Wolfgang Flur (second from right) 1978


Still plays live electro percussions but here he is DJing in Moscow



Or AfterLife for PsyTrance, Drum & Bass, Electro for one day/night. confused.gif


@Tryst: Yeah, I have Selected Ambient Works which is really nice to do college work too etc. Was litening to him just there.

So Autechre are two blokes from England who have been around since the same time as AFX basically doing the same thing as AFX. They are credited as pioneers of IDM (I hate using that term). The album I mentioned, Bike, was out in '93 and can easily be mistaken for a cold beat-driven Aphex Twin track with nice little ambient hooks.

And Tryst, can you reccomend some good Ambient for me? icon14.gif

I particulary like Eutow by Autechre.

If your not above independent artists, [ur=http://www.soundclick.com/pro/view/03/default.cfm?bandID=427414&content=music]Zoios[/url] He doesn't classify all of his music as ambient but quite a bit of it has the same principles.
We also have this guy William Edge

Soundclick has alot of real decent artists if you look.

If you want some real cds, you can always go for Fantomas - Delivrium Cordium, its more experimental but with the same principles behind it.

And another thing you could branch out to if you like ambient/experimentalish stuff is some of the cold/darkwave artists. Chaostar is great, then Arcana.

It all really depends on your mood, Fantomas will apeal probley apeal to you more if your into Aphex, Chaostar will apeal more to people who like slighly gothic/epic/industrialish sounds. and Arcana apeals a bit more to people who like classical stuff, they draw heavily on the romanticised 'medieval' sound



loved that Autechre video, I might have to find some of that stuff. Also, damn I love Kraftwerk videos.

Thanks mate. William Edge is great. I listen to lots more of him.

Is it Arcana as in Nox Arcana? I found a video on youtube Music Box by Nox Arcana. Is it the same? It's really good.

Thanks for those reccomendations icon14.gif

Nope, just a club night in Liverpool, absolutely immense line up though, easily the best I will have seen this year, although Vitalic will be pretty hard to top.

Yeah, SAW 85-92 is definately a lot more beat-driven, SAW II less so. I'd rate Selected Ambient Works II very highly but just a tip - don't go dozing off late at night with it on. Waking up to distorted children's laughter and windchimes is enough to make you spend the rest of the night with the light on.

Some more ambient you might wanna check out - on the more beat-driven side I'd recommend the debut album by The Field, entitled From Here We Go Sublime, probably one of the best electronic releases of this year. (If you enjoy that you might enjoy the Pop Ambient 2007 compilation released on Kompakt, which featured the first track by The Field). Also notable would be Biosphere's latest full-length, Dropsonde which makes use of looped jazz drumlines alongside traditional ambient tracks. It's not a typical ambient LP but it's very good nonetheless. Try Endless Summer by Fennesz as well for some interesting electronic/ambient tomfoolery.
And of course there's the huge amount of ambient house which came about in the nineties. Chill Out by The KLF is probably the pinnacle of that, along with The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld. Some others of mention would be Motorbass' Pansoul and Sculptured by Beaumont Hannant, 74:16 by Global Communication and Flying High by The Irresistible Force.
For more traditional ambient try Brian Eno's work, especially 1983's Apollo and the Ambient 1-4 series. Recently I've enjoyed some stuff by Tor Lundvall, especially Empty City, which like its name conjures up images of desolate industrial graveyards. It's nice though, still manages to remain organic in sound. Try his Last Light album as well, I dunno if it'd be technically classifiable as ambient because it's got vocals on most tracks. It's nice though, if a little depressing. Also worth mention are the rest of the Biosphere catalogue (apart from maybe Autour De La Lune, which is just recordings from space). Substrata is their best and arguably one of the highlights of the genre.

A few more albums worth checking out:
William Basinski - El Camino Real
Various Artists - Good Night: Music To Sleep By
Max Richter - Songs From Before
Steve Roach - Dreamtime Return
Steve Roach - Proof Positive
Phelan Sheppard - Harp's Old Master

I've seen 2 Many DJ's at the Electric Picnic in and got free tickets to Chemical Bros too. They're good but I've moved more towards Psy-Trance and Drumb & Bass. Still like Daft Punk. You'll have an excellent night.

I decided to go to AfterLife. It's part 2 of Life which I went to in July. Here's some pics from the last couple of years...

Just got Leftism by Leftfield. f*cking amazing opener. I remember hearing the opening track Release the Pressure but never knew who done it.

OK, the guys organising AfterLife and Life fest couldn't get the license for the outdoor venue. It's now gonna be in Dublin City centre between two venues. 50 DJs, 18 bands. Starts at like 12pm to closing and in the bigger venue/club/theatre there's gonna be the bigger DJ's including Drum & Bass legend DJ Krust. Can't wait!. I'll post pics. BTW, my mate (a bloke) is dressing up as Wonderwoman for it. I'm dressing up in a Fez and a traditional Arabian robe thingy and we'll be hanging with our mate Cid if you catch my drift wink.gif smile.gif smile.gif !

@Spectre:Nice track icon14.gif

DJ Krust...

No, if that song is anything its synth enhanced rock, falling under the same ideas that the Killers had on their first album.
