Acts Like Jedi Mind Trick, Mos Def, Blackalicious, Roots, Common(before the gap commercial), Q-Tip and a host of others still hold true to the original shape and style that made hip hop what it was. A story, a hook and then the groove. Today's hip hop is all about the bling and bitches and hoes..... disgusting....

Check out some Spoken Word or the next time there is a Poetry Jam at the Uni. Some great stuff and deep shit......

unless you are totally against the whole rap thing,,, I would recommend any of the above acts to check out. Its nice to be eclectic in one's musical tastes..

wouldn't you agree??



I have a high distaste for much of the rap and hip hop that comes out of the us (though i will admit to listening to an occasion hit tune, but that its usually the case that the song is so annoying and is played so many times that the overbearing annoying factor makes you like it). I do enjoy much of domestic and balkan artist though, for instance Edo Maajka is one of my favourites and i always enjoy six pack čukur and slon & sadež (though these two make all styles of music not just hip hop). Also i enjoy some french rap. Not because of the lyrics (cant speak a word of french) but i just like the sound of the french language. A bit weird but what the hell. I also like the sound of japanese language (and i love japanse pop and dance music, the pure silliness of it is just so awesome) though contrary to frech i can actualy (at least partially) understand japanese (thank you japanse tv shows).

so you hate Trance from 2003 onwards? :P

None of you have probably developed an ear for dark, dirty, evil, tech house and gritty electro, so if you´re curious here is a mix from a talented sydney DJ / friend:

Nicolas Paul Stéphane Sarközy de Nagy-Bocsa, probably

I'm making choices today too:

Will Lira spin drum'n'bass or acid techno after buying the proper equipment?

I like acid techno, but I'm leaning toward drum'n'bass because of my ever-procrastinated trancestep projects

Both!!
Don't limit yourself to one genre, though techno is a lot easier to start off on.

I'd imagine it's pretty hard to mix those in the same "set," if that what you meant.

Yeah, that's why I've got to choose, at least, the BPM range I'm focusing on.

Indeed, I'd hate to limit myself to one "genre", but let's face it: records are quite expensive and I'd then have to choose a starting point.

If I pick drum'n'bass, I'd focus on fast paced genres, such as drum'n'bass, trancestep, freeform and hardcore in general (although drum'n'bass is an absurdly broad genre). If I pick Acid Techno, on the other hand, I'd focus on hard acid techno, hard acid trance, nrg, techno and hard house.

I do plan on working on "Maximalism", which would make be able to drop both drum'n'bass and acid techno in one set, but I need some priorities first

Yeah I didn't mean mix both together!
Well unless you've got a very keen ear and can mix synth and bass lines on key as a transition after cutting the drums. Personally I'm not much good at it... slightly deaf in one ear
I don't know, 4-4 beat is easier to mix and you can throw a lot of other genres in there if you have other stuff lying around as most of the electronic genre as a whole is 4-4.
But yeah, I agree, D&B certainly has a lot of sub-genres in there you can explore.

I prefer 127ish BPM. I realized how insane trance is when it's comes to that and also why it has to be executed very well in order to sound good, IMO. One reason why I prefer house now, it's a lot more layed back and chilled out. Keeping in mind how many break downs/build up [mainstream] "trance" has these days, it sound aweful and doesn't even remotely remember the style that for me in to EDM in the first place.

I actually have no clue how people mix stuff that isn't 4-4. Quite mind boggling really .

Just checked it out, it's got some neat tracks in there but it's a little too dark for me .
