Discussion in 'music, bands, clubs & festies' started by ska invita, Dec 26, 2018.
Reissue, but new to me:
Heard in 2017, but released in '18
New/unreleased UR. Nothing exciting, but still better than most stuff out there...
Larry being Larry
Japanese acid...disco? Sure, why not.
Derek Carr had a busy year with some quality stuff
More Detroit-not-detroit from Stephen Lopkin
Played this out a fair bit this year (both sides!)
Oh shit, nearly forgot about this edit...defo a fav this year!
I ordered this but it never came and now it's sold out
Weird chuggy Detroit acid house
Have always been a big Soulphiction fan, but he's becoming a buy-on-sight producer for me lately. I've played these two a fair bit
edit: apparently that last one is 2017 ah well, a fucking banger, anyway!
some v cool tunes there fez
that Sharif Lafrey thing particularly tickled me
....posted this the other day in another thread but some favourite bumpy chunky 4x4garage tunes from this year
(lack of stuff on youtube or soundcloud!)
So We Sing
So We Sing (Original Mix) by Ilya, GROOVE SKOOL on Beatport
Blow The Roof Off (bomb!!!)
Blow The Roof Off (Original Mix) by DJ Hermit on Beatport
Take This Out
Take This Out (Original Mix) by Callvin on Beatport
Beautiful - Jeremy Sylvester smashes this sound
Beautiful (Jeremy Sylvester Remix) by Phillip Ramirez, Funky Sensation on Beatport
Slightly genre pushing this one but I think it fits - Mad Villains the man of the hour for me. His stuff can get a bit teckier or just housey, but its got the bass and bump to count as garage inflected. Killer this one:
On a proper skippy garage beat thing though this tune really does it for me
Mind Of A Dragon - Music Box (Original Mix) [Red Balloon Dubs] :: Beatport[/QUOTE]
Panties on this EP is the one, but it's not on YouTube and this is nice, too:
Panties preview: http://www.rushhour.nl/sounds/104836_4.mp3
Some big DnB tunes I liked
Top dirtbox tune of the year for me....a touch of the Bad Company Dog FIght about it I think - but deeper
Bungle - Cocooned Vip
From 2017 but so what, just discovered, probably my favourite dnb tune of the year, Makoto does melodic dnb better than anyone when he gets it right...
Makoto - Fancy Free
Double bass dub-wise jazzstep roller - just a nice tune in the mix
Really like the jazzsticks label this came out on - some nice jazz inflected dnb on there
Locksmith - Jahseh
G-Funk DnB - always wants to get played this one - pretty simple but good fun
Vital - Real Shit
Maybe not one for the pursit in me, with a bit of autotune dancehall vocal on it, but its a conscious/sufferers message and its one of those tunes that will remind me of the year more than most
DJ Limited - Sun (Vocal Mix)
Its a tiny bit commerical Hospital sounding this one, but only a tiny bit, and on the whole its a very sweet liquid cut
The Vanguard Project - Loving Arms
Ky - Keep It Fresh
Jump up i guess, dirty bomb thing, but really clever prodution going on if you listen closely - makes me screw up my face everytime
Techy but really interesting tune this - love the chord to dirt ratio
Current Value - City Syndrome
unashamed Annie Mac rinsed, peak time Italo-electro style banger - v more ish imo
thats got a lot going on!
ive got a couple of guilty pleasures...guilty because they're big room tech house and thats still a bit new to me to like
this rate ill be going to dreamland in 2020.
nicely done that stuff.... ( remember Subsoul as YT channel, now a label ? makes sense )
am guessing this is the new (ish) ' Tech House' , aka : bugger all to do with what Nils Hess / Mr C and the crew were doing back in the early Victorian era, and everything to do with the post shuffle / 'cutting shapes' thing in London, + also Anjuna Deep etc, and what US EDM jocks are all diving onto ( not 100 % sure mind)
yeah i think tech house can be a bit of a broad defining term these days...we need more sub sub genre names, fast!! those names are probalby out there tbh
those two above are on the EDM spectrum of things id say...but its the way you play em
btw dont know if subsoul is a label - defintiely post tunes still - neither of those tunes came out on subsoul
turns out that is from 2013 and is an edit/remix of this, fact fans
Beatport have jsut put up their top 50 bestsellers by genre
Best Sellers 2018 :: Beatport
Bestsellers often to be avoided at all costs i find, but still, must some good tunes in there somewhere maybe
Turns out thats a edit extension of this 1980 cut from Switzerland!
Ronny Peller Hot Police - Don't Lie To Me / Gimmi More
that is a sureshot crowdpleaser! DJ Die on the remix supposedly. Getting that
And that Borai Denham thing too
Talking of refixes and such this is a great 2018 update on a 94 Piano House Classic (which I didnt know of before - DJ Dove's Illusions)
crunchier kick and some tamborines help it a long nicely - hte original is great too though
Theres also this breakbeat bass remix of Doves Illusions bootleg style from 2017
NY Stomp also had this this year which I love - straight head down stomping NY House. The name fits the trade descriptions act!
(original 2012 - this was a 2018 repress with this aditional instrumental version i think? )
German producer I believe, but yes
Great selection from Fez909
Another house tune I loved from last year was Valerio Bianco - Estasi
Absolutely loving this thread. Good work everybody
