here we go again. i’ve taken some time to make this third edition but this time i’ll show more tunages…
enough blabla some music action
Current Value – Faith
Label Freak recordings FREAKLP001
Release Year 2007
This tune is typical of the old style of current value. You can define some kind of a switch into Current Value style. the first part of his music is all about rythmical madness. This tune is full on intensity but rythmical stuff of Current Value can be also less intense yet there are always twisted and sound like no one else.the second part is the techy, sound design from outer space current value.
Anyway there is so kind of magic happening here : it’s really complex and twisted but it’s also catchy as fuck. it’s like some kind of organized chaos. It doesn’t feel at all like Breakcore, which is often punkish, lofi and chaotic, even if it’s hard breakbeat headfuck.
Like always with Current Value the productions skillz are two step ahead nearly everybody in the scene. I hope he still produce tunes like this but he has moved on more complex and intense sound design and less rythmical stuff. Anyway he produce what he want and i’m no one to tell him what must do!
this tune is perhaps the hardest tune ever around 175 bpm….
I:Gor – Kikin Beatz
Label Peacemaker 11
Release Year 2006
This tune is so good. heard it in parties and don’t know at that time it was an I:Gor tune. There is all the elements i have come to love in an I:Gor tune. There is this distortion wizardry with ultradistorted industrial tone. there is also breakbeat and hiphop flavors
Only few manage to make industrial tone like this. it’s easy to put a 909 bassdrum into a random distortion. it’s a lot harder to achieve something unique. This is something that industrial hardcore producer often manage better than regular drum’n’bass producer.
What i also like with I:Gor is the fuck it all attitude wich remind me a early techstep. I:gor don’t let him fool by genre. There is producer who jump on the bandwagon and try to follow the trend and there is the one who create the trend. I:gor is of course no the only one to create trend but at the end of the day those who mimic the trend of the day will be forgotten easily when stuff move on.
Meat Beat Manifesto – Radio Babylon
Label Nothing Records INT8P-6169
Release Year 1997
this is perhaps as far as i know the first jungle tune. this is were everything begin. All the key elements are here. Intensive sample culture of hiphop melted with rave culture, ragga sample. There is breakbeat looped, ragga sample, heavy subbass. It was a important record at the time. lots of people says they have find inspiration into this tune.
Mescalinum United – We Have Arrived
Label Planet Core PCP 006
Release year 1990
this is where hardcore techno begin. lot’s of people say it was the first real hardcore tune. And as you can hear there is no stupid cheesy popish melodies. it’s raw as fuck, dark as hell and heavy as you can dream of. it was a really influential release at that time. For me it’s still sound fresh even if i was a kid at that time 🙂
