Zeek posted Nine Samurai from this album a while back, but for some reason I never got it.

probably one of the first-ever dubstep releases to properly get critical acclaim

also digging the SHIT out of this producer lately... i deleted a post earlier recommending the 10 leading/pioneering dubstep producers, putting out nothing but 100% quality, driving the scene forward and bringing its REAL kudos back. this guy is one of them, right up there. this track blows my fucking mind. listen to it in proper quality and... well, wow.

i had his debut but never listened to it that much... i thought faltyDL and Untold did the 'style' much better...

but this sophomore release is a really well-developed take on the sound.

one of my favourite beat-makers / underground hip-hop producers, period. the guy is mad talented. that entire album above is one that i listened to endlessly last summer... it's made entirely of asian film/music samples. amazing. he has a new album out as well that samples from a wider range of music, and it's fucking great. the chillest beats for summer streets.

here's a jam from his newest LP, which is fucking awesome. sort of borrowing influences from his parisian-electro scene and from the hudmo/flylo funky school.

From the album Shame, Shame by Dr. Dog.  I'd recommend  getting this album

This shit hasn't gotten 26M views for nothing! Take your underground crap elsewhere, this is the best electronic music I've ever heard.

ikonika live is fucking awesome. so much funk.



the last EVER song produced by one of the greatest groups in experimental electronic - pan sonic.

their solo discographies are amazing, as well. but this is such an amazing finale to an amazing album, and a great closure to their body of work.

this song blows my mind



explorations into primitive sound: overdriven electronic static-noise meets the pounding, primal beat of the drum. hypnotic.



the drum's incessant and unremitting pounding carries through into industrial metallic-resonances...



every album is a fascinating experiment and a great concept of thought.

so in love with this today... some real next-level stuff. electronic experimentalism has never been such a fine-art.

Check out The Asteroid #4 if you like shoegaze.



Also listen to their song "She Touched the Sky".

Zeeky - you got any recommendations that will test out my new headphones?

i always say... download SND... some of my favourite pioneers in sound science...

they have an album in 24-bit, 96Hz .wav's...

it's called Atavism. it'll blow any sound-system out of the water.

although make sure you've got a sound-card that can process sound at that quality! im presuming you have a half-decent sound system set-up if you've got decent headphones. (pre) amps and whatnot. here's a taster in criminally-compressing youtube quality:

my sound-system is actually shite

I spend a lot more time listening from headphones than I do at my desk. I've got an external sound card for my laptop that I don't currently use, but I could break it out. Other than that it would be from my iphone.

ed: i'll be honest I don't know a ton about audio hardware and how it works.

if you don't have at least a dedicated sound card then why are you worried about 'testing' out earphones?

if you're listening from just an iphone/ipod, then you're not gonna get anything worth writing home about.

i have the top-end shure earphones for my ipod/iphone, cause having top-end headphones is a bit of a waste of money... unless you're prepared to carry around a headphone pre-amp or something.

Uzique, try a little old-school;
Listened to your Clubroot, reminded me of this band

From 1991





And something slightly newer



And for something completely different, from 1979

FSOL are mega-huge over here in the UK... i started out on the classics i like following contemporary artists though, too!

FSOL, Orbital, The Orb etc. spent so many years as a teenager listening to that as well as the other 'big' electronica names.

i kinda see them as what the beatles, led zep, rolling stones etc. are to modern 'rock' music.

very much an education and foregrounding.

I'm not "worried" about getting awesome sound coming out of these earphones, one of the major motivational factors behind their purchase was durability and warranty.

It might be very well that I can't tell the difference between my $50 pair and this new pair, but comparing them with a 128kbps mp3 rip of some random song won't really do me any good. I mean obviously I should test with music that I listen to most often, but I'd like to see where the limitations exist, how the hardware stacks up, if it's worth re-ripping my library at a higher bitrate, etc.

Just songs that could highlight the quality differences in my current hardware. Not "OMG BASS IS MAKING MY BRAIN BLEEED".

listen to anything... any average rock song will have a mix of bass-lows, mid-range stuff and crashing high-end cymbals.

listen to songs you know well that you have listened to a lot... that's an easy way to tell if there's a difference.

good music isn't about big bass or 'big' anything: it's about texture and clarity. by that i mean, every instrument and layer of sound should be clear and distinguishable, but the overall texture of the music should be balanced to form a fine mix.
