messing with footwork? I can dig it. I was just reminiscing the other day about the glut of good footwork-inspired records that were flying about over 5 years ago now.

Can you tell us about the idea behind the mix? I put together the best of underground badass dance music that I've been recently making. I only used unreleased tracks. The mix relates to something I've been into lately: revisiting the idea of club music, what I'd like to hear and be surprised by. Accepting the need for quantized music for a moment. Trying to share happiness.

This is exactly the kind of nervous-tic-and-cringe-inducing irritation I stay explicitly away from, most probably due to aging. I'm getting too old for this proverbial shit. I also tried not to comment, but I had to give up because this irritates me even when I no longer hear it.

Is that how you feel about footwork and adjacent genres in general, or just this release?  the more i listen to footwork the more I love it, but opinions etc.   Hadn't heard of it described that way before.

Footwork/juke in general; I also dump hyperpop in the same (hyper)irritant category, I would rather listen to looped blackboard chalk screech.

Spoiler

Not really, but just to drive my point home.

I don´t blame you. It sounds interesting, but lets be honest, it also sounds boring. I have great respect for Mr. Ripatti.

I like his more focused narrative footworky-IDM:

You could start by trawling through my posts in New & Upcoming Releases - but that's just a fragment because WATMM is, after all, primarily an electronic music forum. You could also rummage around in my Discogs collection, but that's only what I have as physical releases and is thus only a slice of what I actually like. Then you can check out my  DJ sets and mixes (and likes/reposts - and even some of my own, very old tracks) on Soundcloud, but that's only what I've played at gigs and at home. Nevertheless, these three will most probably give you a partial answer.

If y'all gonna spin it like that, I have to chip in:

I like juke as a structure, yet this is bland to me, nothing of note at all. The whole gesture of Ripatti saying he's mad into current US rappers gives me cringe vibes of the archetypical rootless white dude hooked on what has vital energy in it. The fact that he does this while living far from cities on a remote Finnish island is a bit baffling. I guess the internet is good there.

      new album from Relaxer (formerly known as Ital) on Planet Mu
      https://relaxerelaxer.bandcamp.com/album/concealer

      first track almost feels a little Burial but with some direction. i was hoping for an Endgame part 2 because i love that album but this ain't half bad for what it is. the song has a good bit of flow to it, curious to hear how the rest of the album is gonna sound.

      Hi all. I realized music that sounds like spiritual, etheric ambient glitch/techno is the type of music that my mind resonates with the most. Some examples might be Oval, Vladislav Delay, SND, Visible Cloaks, Huerco S., etc.
      Do you know something similar? Can be visuals too.

      One half of Lakker and one of my favorite producers, Eomac, is back with his new album (first on Planet Mu).  Preview tracks sound LUSH.
      Don't know if I can wait til Mid April!
