Fuck, I had to return to this thread to download this track. I would gently kill the dancefloor dancing to this track.
Also, I actually just now tried mastering this track to see waddup, and one thing that was apparent is that "modern production" makes the track sound like shit. So then I check out the waveform, and the track's got more headroom than my Tokyo apartment. No wonder it sounds so authentic.
shea your 'i was into it before it was cool' and 'check out my cool lofi friends' attitude is pretty cringe, just sayin
like it's not cringe to bring these facts up but the way you're handling it is a bit lol
nah knowing shea I think he's just a bit flabbergasted with the thread's title and direction of discussion while not only knowing a lot about this scene / genre but actually being a part of it. i mean hell I'm embarrassed I didn't immediately think of the term " lo fi house" as someone who is a fan with a fair amount of this stuff.
sure it came off as a little off-putting but it's totally warranted imo
Sorry, I edited the posts to try and reign it in but I guess not enough.
its cool anyway, and i didn't wanna diss your or anyones scene, i was just genuinely intrigued by the music and associated style and maybe failed to make ironic statements clear when replying to other posts. i grabbed that huerco s lp when it was released cuz i loved actress and tried to find similar things but i didn't know what came out of that scene. so at least this thread gave me some info & stuff i didn't know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
anyway more muzik:
different scene i guess, more on the techno side of things, but an old favourite:
perhaps the instances of it happening in the past has made me a wee paranoid about it. but.. you know.. why not join the dots if the dots are there to be joint.
*repositions tinfoil hat* ahem..
All those goddamn sites do it all the time. FACT's content is at least substantive though, more the same tier as other sites that actually focus on the meat of music discussion and not just trendy news posts. I think a lot of it is not intentional but I'm sure that varies from writer to writer. There are other forums and messageboards and blogs that likely get mined too. Hell, a huge part of vaporwave "docs" and essays are literally rehashing stuff that Adam Harper wrote for Dummy years ago and many aren't even are of him or the weed temple review as original sources.
