    This thread, to be honest. I'm with you. I like didn't even know that RRose was releasing anything until it popped in here.

    Personally, I don't know of any website's that compile new/upcoming techno releases. I just follow labels and artists, dig through Discogs, search through What.cd, a few blogs/websites like Smoke Machine/TEA/FACT/RA, and a bunch of other smaller blogs that I 'like' on Facebook. It's just a matter of keeping up with the same watering holes. I would definitely attribute the lack of an aggregator to the sheer volume of releases, I mean there is too much shit coming out all the time.

    Edit: And this thread helps too.

    I go direct to the source. Labels and Artists. Artists with whom I am not familiar are recommended through a variety of microblogs and websites.

    Yeah this thread is great. I also have a couple of close friends whose taste I trust. I would be all in for a website of that kind.



    This one sounds great slowed down a bit. Found in Morphosis' FACT mix from a while back.

    The guy is on fire atm. Incredible producer.

    The fact that he hasn't made it stateside in ages concerns me. I smell visa problems; it certainly can't be for lack of interest on the part of US promoters.

    Christian Löffler had a great opener. Never heard of him before but definitely on my radar now.

    seeking counsel:

    Andy Stott or a Peter Van Hoesen extended set on a much better system

    which show wins ...

    Who is the "rarer" of the two? In other words, who plays in the US less often? That would probably inform my decision the most, but that's probably not the answer you were looking for :P

    Hasn't PvH played here twice in the last year? I didn't think he was very interesting last time, either.

    Stott wins if rarity is the metric of greatest import.

    But passing this up seems unthinkable

    Yea, I just saw your post on the other thread. Plaslaiko is way more appealing to me than PvH.

    Has Stott even played the west coast before? I guess it depends on whether you actually want to see him, or think he'll be back within the next few years?

    Doesn't get more interesting, to my mind, than PVH. But different strokes and all that . Could always sneak away for an hr of Stott if Future Perfect is nice about releasing set times in advance.

    PvH vs. Andy Stott--two different styles of good bangin techno. Personally, I'd see Stott just because he's a bit rarer and I love the Modern Love library. Either way, you can't be mad at yourself at the end of the night.

    Full disclosure: I did see PvH this year already but not on a proper system.

    One of the clowns interviewed in that piece took to twitter to voice his displeasure at the negative reaction of dance music "snobs" ... and Sherburne kindly put him in his place

    I'm kind of bored of people trying to summarize edm scenes. The American conversation is especially dull. What people forget to delve into in details is the business end of things. You can go on for ages about the music but it doesnt matter.

    That article was aggravating. I was particularly flabbergasted by the part where they try to legitimize their level of knowledge and experience with the club-dwelling side of the electronic music scene, by explaining how they have seen Skrillex and Tiesto in small clubs, not just stadiums.

    The "snob" label concerns me, because I feel like they're throwing out the term snob to refer to a preference for a more 'elite' experience (rather than a perception of having 'better' taste in the actual music). Meaning, it seems like they think the EDM "snobbery" is about being able to make a claim most people cannot -- being able to claim you've been into a DJ/producer longer than others, seeing them at a smaller/private venue, having met/hanging out with said DJ. Just my take as it seems like people invariably respond to "snobs" with big talk about how they are friends with so-and-so or saw such-and-such cheesedick DJ at a private party before he was big. They don't seem to get that we're not impressed that they have seen Skrillex, whether at a 200 person venue or in 20,000 festival crowd, 3 years ago, or last month. It's like they think 'snobs' are only interested in music that is not yet popular, recognized... my take is that most of us who are into electronic music that would cause us to be labeled as "snobs" would be pretty happy to hear that music on the radio or be able to see those DJs booked at festival gigs... *shrug*

    God. So many juicy awful quotes.

    Dave Rene: Well, in Skrillex's case he did something sonically that's never been done, so that to me makes it very attractive to the mainstream from a sound design perspective. There are songs in there. A lot of dance music guys aren't making songs, but now that more and more and more musicians are actually getting into this game, songs are coming out of this which is why it's becoming attractive
    I have sat through—and so has Dave I'm sure—many major label meetings where Skrillex is referred to as "the next Kurt Cobain," because of how people relate to him.
    Dave Rene: Yeah, there started to really be some personality behind this music, some attitude and not a gay one.
    Kathryn Frazier: And hopefully you'll be able to buy a big beach house somewhere in the middle.

    Matt Rodriguez: That would be awesome.
    Whoever played after Zedd, the guy got up on the table and raised his hands and to myself I'm like, "Hmm, Zedd didn't do that, this guy's having a better show," and to me that's just fucked and I hated that feeling. I don't know, it's definitely changing what a live show is, for better or worse. Personally I'd rather watch a jazz trio, but I don't know where I really land on that one.
