Okay so this album isn't new, it was released 27 March last year.

It's a pretty tight, if somewhat sparse album. It has a dark spooky vibe that nicely melds many of the sounds of recent electronic music: post-dubstep, rnb, footwork, future-garage, trap, that witch genre, minimalist dub; a sound that I wouldn't say it's anything ground-breaking, but it's very cleanly executed. The standouts for me are 'Set it Off' 'DMT' and 'Breeze' 'forest fires'.

Anyhow, what I find surprising is that the full album has 1,358,840 views on youtube. I haven't found tracked the source but apparently XXYYXX called himself the head of the illuminati, lol, and I'm not sure if that has anything to do with the proportionally larger amount of listeners (as opposed to most of this type of music) he has acquired, but either way I find it interesting to read all these comments from electronic music virgins who have stumbled onto this and having their minds rearranged. It's pretty awesome that stuff like this is reaching a much larger audience, don't you think?

he's a sixteen year old (maybe seventeen now?) kid from orlando. saw him live last year @ will's pub and he acted like a twat, mumbling bitchy remarks about the stage equipment between every song. i had him liked on facebook because i did enjoy his music, but then he started making posts with the same nasty attitude. i hate it, but the way someone carries themselves really does affect how much i enjoy their music.

Well I don't blame him if he doesn't know how to act. In the music world today you can have millions of people listening to your music today and in a year have everyone forget about you. It's really a rather confusing ordeal innit.

i feel like it's the duty of every musician referencing DMT in their music to make it much weirder and psychedelic than what we have here, just my opinion obviously but after being told i would 'like' Run DMT i believe i have the authority to make this proclamation.

I bet a lot of it is the simple fact that he's a 17 year old male. I think about myself at that age and up til about 21 or 22 and I don't like it. I think most boys just suck at that age. He'll hopefully just outgrow it.

That's true. Especially when you're known as XXYYXX. It's good but as said earlier, there's almost nothing memorable about it. I think that whole aesthetic is quite played out right now and like you said he's the one producer whose managed to become the entryway for a lot of casual listeners to witch house/trap/beat music, etc.

There's two Run DMT producers - one is a pretty good lo-fi/glo-fi in the same vein as Sun Araw or James Ferraro and the other is some brostep-ish duo. One of the members is Parson who actually put out some decent old dubstep including a 12" on Planet Mu.

 

Also RunDMT is some blog by some mom about running I found 3 minutes ago.

not to be a fist shaking old man or anything, but just imagine what someone is like at age 17 in 2013 with facebook, access to porn at practically any age, and texting and cellphones and all that shit. I just cannot even process what it would be like to be born or just gaining awareness of the world post-internet takeover

I'm not much older than he is and I would describe growing up on the internet as leading to a state of feeling hollow, deadened, desensitized, derealized.

I'm an optimist about all that but the change it's having on kids is undeniable and overwhelming. Kids are still kids though - I think the internet and social media simply exaggerates and accelerates their personalities: At stores I've seen 10 year old girls texting and wearing makeup and inappropriate clothing and I've seen girls of the same age running around the toy, book, and video game sections with utter enthusiasm. It just seems to reveal personalities faster - AND show whose doing a better job at parenting.

      Bodyverse - I Could Go Lucid
       
      https://lontanoseries.bandcamp.com/album/i-could-go-lucid
       
      ‘I Could Go Lucid’ is about an instant of awareness in which I realise I could have the chance to create an astonishing reality, if only I could keep consciousness while dreaming, for more than an ephemeral moment. Lucid dreams mean to me a chance to create perfection as I feel they release the power of imagination in its whole potential. Imagination becomes matter to interact with. It’s the brain’ s virtual reality, the off limits oneiric one. As well as in dreams, also in the in musical creative process I perceive a certain amount of surreal content, and it too links with imagination and with the act of materialising ideas. For this reason I am currently experimenting through improvisation, in a journey between surrealism, expressionism and situationist drift. I try to let ideas flow, so my will subordinates to accidents and emotions. I become an explorer or a traveller with an uncertain destination. This atmosphere has resulted in a creation of six pieces in which the priority is simply to keep the integrity of the original idea itself. Nothing has been planned nor post-produced.  This is involuntary music.

      Sounds cool. I'm a big fan of his earlier releases - "Ruins Tape" and "Lost in Taiga". This feels a bit more dance floor orientated.
