The percussive madness seems to have left most of DnB. theWhat do people think of this? theDo you miss it? theDo you think emphasis on other elements is the way forward?
i miss it.
good reading. . .
hurts my eyes a bit though.
new percussive madness:
keizen (subversive remix) - aural imbalance
old percussive madness:
planet 3 - alaska & paradox
word word word.
i beleive that alotta tunes nowdays have taken the emphasis away so much form the beats that they dont even bother to make good beats anymore.
kets face it, oldskool focused on the beats, the bass was just sub bass....
tek is more the basslines and/or synths.
sometimes i wish that people put in efforts to make beats and not just bang up a half assed one.
e.g: thunder remix by dom is my favourite display of beats, its just the amen and a few other elements but its wicked.
twisted city - inside doms head 'haha i made a memorable synthline so ill make the beat pretty crappy, hahaha. cha ching (money sound).'
i love intricate beats, or beats that sound cool in general, e.g: skirmish.
but i dont really like them to be too insane. its not really dance flloor friendly. i prefer a balance between intricacy & phatness and overall groove & dancability.
ive always prefered the drum over the bass.
somes up what ive been sayin and im sure alot will agree when you hear DnB fans sayin "well u can hardly call your 4/4 beat house music etc inovation blah blah...."
the straight beat genres dont rely on the beat to carry the brunt of their choons, unlike Dnb.
majority have the drums and bass hence the name as the key players, but when your using a boring ol 2step beat the choons become very samish and really need more to the tracks ie synth lines melody riffs hooks line sinkers....
pre 97 the choons were atleast choppn up breaks with 16 bar patterns.
this isnt really a stab at dnb more a stab at people who bag Straight beat dance music.
