Interesting site. Some good music, but, IMHO, 95% is just pure (adultrated) noise. But it's interesting.

(Look at ALL THE DEFENITIONS!)

Ahahaha!

I love this:

quote:
JPOP:

Is anyone even surprised that this kind of stuff would come from Japan? That whole country is like Bizarro world. They do everything we do, just in a really strange way. It reminds me of that scene in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" where they go near Toontown, and you can see clouds of smoke and yelling and fighting and all sorts of haywire shit happening above the horizon to signify the complete and total lunacy of the place. Japan is just like that. The whole world continuously scratches its head at the far east, then sits back and watches to see what wacky thing the Japanese will do next. I mean, I'm sure the culture is swell once you get past all the incest and pedophilia and giant robots and all, but after that--huh? Japan is super crazy place, 100 PERCENT!

Cool, now I can finally figure out how to search or ask for such music. I have always wanted to find some but never know what to look inder or even call it. Beyond Techno. Love the writing.

quote:
This is what people should think of when they DO hear the word "techno". Something completely and totally machine-oriented, using drum patterns and rhythms as melody. After awhile, it actually begins to sound like it, too. Cool eh? If the Americans don't watch out their European counterparts are going to start making their music better than them (if they aren't already). And Americans hate it when they get upstaged. Sweden already conquers the world's pop music (90 percent of all boy band/popgirl producers are swedish). They also make great furniture, produce kickass hockey players, and have good looking women. Gee. Is there anything that country CAN'T do? I want to move there someday.




Dam-it, that's it I moving to Sweden any one what a room mate.

Now that was a pointless introduction. But a really cool site. And tell me if track 4 under Minimal Techno doesn't sound like the start of the rave groove that Strongbad does in that one e-mail that ends with The Cheat doing the lightswitch rave thingy...

Ah, forget it.

[Edit: correction--a whole lot of that music sounds like the rave groove Strongbad did... I'm so confused. I didn't realize there were so many different names for the same kind of music.]

[Edit: OK, this guy's knowledge of electronica is really starting to scare me now. Time to look at something else. Thanks for the ride, cfb.]

[Edit: OK, what the heck--no Erasure under Synthpop? Hello? New Order, Pet Shop Boys, yes... but no Erasure? Or DM for that matter? Not like I don't already have every single pre-90s album from both groups...

OK, I'm leaving now.]

This just reaffirms the reason why I don't listen to Techno. God, almost everything from the 80's onward is just crap. HArdly even music.

prawnstar: I generally keep silent about my Strong Bad knowledge, but I swear that was the first thing I thought of when I heard that track. I almost jumped up and started turning the lights on and off.

cfb: Hey, it ain't all crap... and it's an acquired taste to boot. No, really.

There is some seriously 'classical' rave music in there. I havent heard Sesames's Street in forever, (jungle>breakcore>#6)

I got a kick out of his editorializing.

Under jungle>jump-up:

quote:
"Every dong is exactly the same!!!! EVERY GOD DAMN FUCKING SONG!!!"



Under downntempo>worldbeat

quote:
"Just don't ever pretend that you are some ethnically tolerant, globally conscious indivicual because you bought a Pure Moods cd."



under house>anthem

quote:
"...evoking images of 'hands in the air' cheering about positively nothing...with thousands of other people who would normally be annoying the hell out of you if you weren't on such great drugs."



And last but not least under Techno>Minimal Techno

quote:
"...it suffers from the same flaws that infect cyberpunk literature...the authors are so entralled with their own ideas and liberal use of asides to detail minute concoctions--almost to the sole satisfaction of their geek fanbase--that it's often at the expense of putting out a decent product"



And...coincidentally, that sums up my feelings about the matrix revolutions.

The guy did a good job of clipping out little looping tracks that represent each genre. This could be a useful tool when seeking source music for a .FLA or a video project. It is broken down enough for you to get an idea of what could be used to solve for certain audio problems. This guy deserves congratulations, this is a signifigant effort on his part. Now if all the categories were tied to a flexible/eleastic menu system like some of praystation's experiments and lost that BG graident it would near ultimate slickness.



Suho: Yeah I noticed that Yaz was absent too, surely they belong somewhere in there with erasure and synthpop.

As much as I get into techno..er.. electron...er..uh.. hous...er... hell with it. I hate all the naming. It's a tad pretentious. It's not like we're talking hundreds of years of change here between the renessance harpsicord and whammy bar guitar rock hair bands.. They're all just variants, and people take it so seriously if you forget which name goes to what style. heh.

C'mon Fwhbgads to the limit... get this freakin' duck away from me!!

And while we're on the subject, the brothers apparently have a new CD coming out. I would be very disappointed if "The Cheat is Not Dead" was not on it (it wasn't in the sample tracks)...

Well I hope it is on there.

They seem not to update H*R as much anymore, you're lucky if you get Strong Bad e-mails every other Monday now
