Ripatti - Fun Is Not A Straight Line

well, your take on footwork does sound like an OK boomer moment.

It was supposed to be self-deprecatingly humorous, so I think I nailed it - but as I've expounded elsewhere, my attempts mostly fail because subtle irony and sarcasm are such high-brow modes of humour that without explicit use of emoji they escape most people - myself included.


...and if it wasn't clear enough, the above is yet another example of me trying to be humorous about failing at humour by way of self-deprecating irony. Maybe I should be more internet-savvy and use tone indicators ?

I'm not a boomer, I'm Gen X. /s

No, that doesn't work.

I enjoyed it 🤷‍♂️ i didn't take it as some genre defining opus from sasu, just was nice to listen to, and a few tracks stuck out as better than the rest.   Will i probably like the jana rush pmu release more? yeah most likely.  But you can listen to Rakka I and II as well as fun is not a straight line, you don't have to choose just one.

if anything this record has boomer energy

I like the album, but I also think this is spot on. I am 39 years old, do with this information what you feel appropriate

It's just weird that Sasu would put out an album of footwork shit when that trend has already come and gone so long ago and saying it's the kind of 'bad ass' shit he wishes was in clubs. And he's not really doing anything interesting with it either.  It's the musical equivalent of this meme

Huge fan of Sasu, but I have to agree with the above sentiments.  Not his best work by far.

Still really enjoying Rakka I and II immensely though.  And the Alternate versions/edits of Whistleblower he has been putting up on his fan club =

      new album from Relaxer (formerly known as Ital) on Planet Mu

      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!
