European boys love their avant-garde techno. Peder Mannefort's most recent single.

Short, experimental. Breaks explode and fade into the ether in an ice cave.

Much more straightforward. Tick-tocks along with jarring synth stabs and a techno groove.

A couple of chill classics...

Good animation. Hypno-groove. Mark Farina on that drip drop. Smoke up.

So house. Melodic, punchy bass and 4/4. Sounds so simple, it's just the deeeepness of it all.

Miss summer already.

deep, with a strong, soulful vocal performance. low-steppin' funk.

phpBB [media]


elastic, bouncy bass; sick hi-hat shuffle leading right up to peak hour

phpBB [media]


soul/funk/disco from the mid-70s. Excellent vocal by Michael Jeffries and out-of-sight, James Jamerson-y bass playing

phpBB [media]


ooohweee. tracks like this make you go "shit!" and "ooohweee." we all need some positive ish for the new year, might as well dance it in

phpBB [media]


more positivity. been on a strong dennis ferrer kick lately, and this soulful, beautiful, and deep workout is definitely one of his highpoints. just lovely.

goddamn romanthony was so much more than the hook on daft punk's "one more time." romanthony was house music.

phpBB [media]


so not the biggest fan of acid house, but, ACCCCCCCIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD! perfect balance of squelchy bass dynamics and excellent minimal programming. so bouncy and funky and sinister. not one damn thing wrong with this at all.

phpBB [media]


two acid house songs in a row is almost one too many, but I found this after being gobsmacked by the previous Paranoid London track I posted, plus it has Alan Vega on vocals.

phpBB [media]


not the type of track I would normally post, but when I first heard it there was no way you would get me to believe that it was Common. It sounds like some Franz Ferdinand-Radio 4-Rapture-type bullshit, but I dig it. Common also sounds oddly amateurish here, but cowbell.

phpBB [media]


And just because this place is so tediously straight here is some Cakes Da Killa...

phpBB [media]


...and hood shit

I feel like there's an awful lot to be said about the title of this thread, but I can't be bothered to articulate it.

loving this...but I keep expecting a bass guitar to enter....Is that what's missing in dance music for me? That and the perfect tempo...makes it hard to actually dance to. I kind of want to make some to see if that is the probably...even though I'll suck at it.

Needless to say, but while I was in the first phase of treatment it was awful. Loneliness took hold and I wasn't sure how friends would react to what I had been putting myself through for so long. I was also terribly angry at myself as well as going through extreme bouts of paranoia and terror. Sucked big time. Still sucks, but I'm managing. One day I happened to find three CDs on my unit: Ancient Melodies of the Future, Last Splash, and Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Outer Space. They were the only CDs in the entire unit that were not only cool, but had affected me deeply. I looked at their arrival as some sort of sign that I should be right where I was. However, I also couldn't wait to exit my 28-day treatment program so that I could finally hear a song I recently discovered. It's from the early 70's by a gentlemen from Ghana named Oscar Sulley Braimah and holy fucking shit it brings some serious afrofunk heat. I had it constantly playing in my head on a loop. Sick polyrhythms, ill bassline, and pyretic vocals. I discovered it via Honey Dijon and Derrick Carter who have both dropped the edit via DJ JKrivit--it provides me with an inner sense of peace and jubilation that only house music provides.

TL;DR: SHUT UP AND ENJOY THE MUSIC

thanks for sharing the jams, and being honest about your life and reaching out, just rememebr the best way to put days behind you is to know you’re in the right place, like instead of being eager to be done with treatment like get me the eff outta this, its okay to take it by the balls like hey, i need a certain number of days to get over this thing, finishing college or breaking up with someone is a similar concept, don’t worry about the counted days just be where you are and let it work for you like you’re king of the world and you’re allowing yourself to entertain the latest in treatment technology. stay strong and know yourself wonderfully as we do :)

Fucken cold outside. Terry Hunter brings a summery vibe in this impressive remix that sample's Luther Vandross's hook on "A House Is Not a Home." The groove is deep. Just lovely.

I, and many others much smarter than I have often stated that house is the punk of disco; it strips disco to its primal groove and beats said groove endlessly. I've listened to this way too many times in the past month and still can't resist its lure. The skittering, stuttering, shuffling hi-hat patterns, minimal bass line, hand-claps for emphasis, and ceaseless pounding makes for showing off your finest involuntary movements on the floor. Into it.

His full concert performance is on youtube -- which is also highly recommended, especially his affecting version of "Johnny and Mary" with Bryan Ferry singing -- but the live version of "Inspector Norse" is big fun, replete with a group of pasty Norwegian dancers replicating his silliest dance moves from the video.
