  1. I'm back on SubFM for the first time in months due to Covid-related job that was keeping me off the air. 🙂 2 hours earlier tonight, 7-9pm EST/1-3am BST www.sub.fm
  2. The beats EP is literally a modern take on Big Apple-era Skream. I love it.
  3. Why people like Nuri Bilge Ceylan films is beyond me. That is all.
  4. I've got 1 felony, I've got 2 felonies, I've got 3 felonies, I've got 4 felonies
  5. That is dope. It sounds like a super beefed up version of this (which I love): http://fredantoncorvest.com/FAC_Envolver.html
  6. Hadn't thought of it that way but yeah that basically is phase distortion synthesis in a nutshell. The Casio CZ-101 for example (although I don't think those are FEG's) is mainly a lot of interplay between envelopes controlling stuff.
  7. Flexible Envelope Generators are one of my favorite modulation sources. Audio Damage's Continua is an example. Envelopes where you can add multiple breakpoints and set up loop start/stop breakpoints (then the envelope continues upon release). Kinda like the loop feature in old hardware samplers except you can add more points and shape the looping modulation to your preference. Clark's recent acoustic song where he said he hated VA oddly triggered this appreciation from me. I don't think there are any analog (or hardware, for that matter) synths I know of with an equivalent. Would be trick
  8. Yeah the TR-8 has 808 and 909 sounds stock. And you can upgrade it to get 606/707/727 sounds. I love the TR-8 personally. edit: And I just couldn't click with the Drumbrute. Loved the individual outs, loved the sequencer (really loved the sequencer, actually), loved BD2 (BD1's not half-shabby either but BD2 has a nice 909 quality, imo). Hated the rest of the sounds. Toms/Congas require a ton of processing to get them sounding strong, and the snare just sounds like a rusty trombone version of a brostep snare.
  9. OT but still hilarious. In the insert for You'd Prefer an Astronaut. My doppelgänger is shown in profile view (won't say who but anyone who knows me personally, if you see this you'll know). And agreed 1000% on Betty. I personally still like Meantime more but the drums on Betty are all-time great (pro tip: the opening of "I know" is some of the best drum sample fodder you're ever gonna get, literally "When the Levee Breaks" quality).
  10. Came for a Watermelon in Easter Hay reference, left happy.
  11. Holy shit if that happened one of my best friends growing up would probably have an orgasm on the spot. I was lucky enough to see Hum live (Downward is Heavenward tour) and no surprise to anyone, they are amazing live. Very tight, they looked like they enjoyed playing in the same band together. "I Hate it Too" was damn near as good live as on record (that's basically me giving as high of praise as I can). Hum fucking rules. There is no bad album. I will be checking for this.
  12. The full meeting wound up having a really shit ending though:
  13. With the amount of unjustified killing of innocent people by the police in the United States, does that matter? Or do you want to play "gotcha" all day and spot hyperbole in inappropriate places?
  14. Oh I certainly don't think that fight or flight can be eradicated (or should it be, for that matter it's a vital component of human nature). I should put more emphasis in that post that police don't even attempt to use non-lethal force anymore. Between that and changes to training tactics that have removed more direct engagement.
  15. No worries. I forgot I had said that. That line came from my idyllic and utopian vision of raves being these positive places (I know it's naive), and then seeing a) people being selfish/not respecting a pandemic and how they impact it, and b) all that garbage (I also come from a culture of everyone cleaning up when done/not trashing a natural location). Any sinister shit that happens at raves bums me out.
  16. This is an earnest response. 1. I find horse racing to be a form of animal cruelty. 2. The lack of distance between people when that photo was reportedly taken (March 2020) shows that an in-progress pandemic will not be taken seriously by so many people. 3. Not sure where the not liking humanity part comes into this.
  17. Nah that's not it. There have been so many retired cops who have come forward and made it known that police training has taken away direct engagement with a detainee in a direct parallel with the rise of firearms in the United States (and by osmosis, everywhere else). Several point blank saying that new police are afraid of *any* physical confrontation with a detainee. That is a terrifying change in police behavior over the years. Couple that with the fact that non-lethal weaponry for police was a very popular discussion as recent as less than 10 years ago. Now that discussion is a non-st
  18. Yeah that photo's depressing as shit as well. It just takes hope away and hopelessness is a horrible feeling.
