is there a name for house?

 

 

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.

 

Perfect, as is.

Yeah that DJ Boring track is excellent, came across it a while ago and was amazed to see it posted in the dismissive opening post.

ok, seems like my written english is near incomprehensible, sorry, to clear things up, completely non-ironically:

 

i love that track

i've been listening to it pretty much for the past few weeks straight

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

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:

Some of the best electronic music coming out. Old school house in flavor but introspective. This track is fantastic:

That wouldn't be the first time. Let's just call it being inspired by us, we should be proud.

 

[Or, it's just completely coincidental.]

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.

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.

some of this stuff has passed my ears as well this year, to my likings

as posted above Hypercolour occasionally has stuff like this, Royal Oak (clone sublabel), Crème Organization, Shall Not Fade , ...

 

heres something from the new Unknown To The Unknown (dj stingray, dj q, lake haze) sublabel; House Crime

 

bit more hard/technoy from french dudes Palma

 

and DJ Swagger, also in OP, on Natural Sciences

 

KiNK comes to mind, melodic house stuff yet less crumbly lofi (on Royal Oak)
