The Dance Music Recommendations Thread


Recommended Posts

So I was just giving my mum a lift somewhere in the car, listening to a classic essential mix from '97 (on cassette no less) by Timmy S. Some fine tech-house business with a healthy dollop of TB-303 goodness. Anyway, mum says "oh, I haven't heard this sound for ages. I can't really describe it, but isn't it a BT type of thing?"

My mum, at 50, still loves the acid :)

That ruins the fun.

I think the appeal of starting a new thread is, newcomers are more enclined to post. 5 pages (and it is 5 pages, acid :)) in and people might be put off reading.

I may be wrong, but I think that's what the hip-hop lot do.

you are wrong :lol:

I have not been in the music folder much before but oh I do love the electronica/dance and all that jazz.

I used to do dj'ing when I was fifteen, but suddenly I began programming instead and sold my dj equipment because my father would only complain of loud noise.

There's not a whole lot going on this release, one track ("Intentionally Left Blank") is just two minutes of silence. How's that for minimal? :(

There's a slight change of style here, it moves into techno territory in the second half. 10101, Flute and Lump are alright, there's a lot of randomness elsewhere.

It's not so much an album as an EP collection, supposed to have a proper album coming next year. I don't think I care anymore though.

This came through last week and I have just listened to it.Or rather endured it.Did he set out to make the whole thing as unlistenable as possible?I was expecting good things but this is like a collection of bedroom demos that have leaked out.And bad ones at that.

Prior to this I liked his stuff but this has to be a joke.Leaving a track blank wasnt funny years ago and is not funny now.

Been getting into a couple of albums I hadn't listened to much when I first got them. Namely, the Fabric mixes by Rub N Tug and Evil Nine. The latter of which contains some of the biggest, dirtiest beats I've heard all year in the form of Franz Ferdinand - The Fallen [Ruined by Justice] and The Kreeps- All I Wanna Do Is Break Some Hearts [boys Noize Remix 2]. Amazing stuff.


Following on with this trend of noisy beats, bass, synths and a bit of guitar. I got a great DJ mix off MySpace yesterday by a German chap called Shir Khan. It's got the funk and the thump. And Roxy Music. Check it out:

Your taste is improving Keith, or mine is getting worse! I'm 18 minutes in and it's so far so good with the Twinkle mix. The breaks track at the start was nice and this current one is quality stuff.

Hahah, either way I'm pleased. I think it's certainly my personal favourite. A good mix of stuff. Lemmie know how the rest went. The fact you haven't posted worries me slightly. :D

Well I got to the end, though there were a couple of less good tracks in the middle. Why do you always spoil things with a dodgy vocal? I've passed the link on to my friend too, who said:

"thanks for the trance, was fucking well phat, i turned it right up when it got chunky"

No, no. I love that dodgy vocal. That's a quality vocal. Really grows on you. Trust me. :angry:

I have no idea what your mate is talking about though. Is it English?
