How can you say that in a thread dedicated to funloving, lo-fi house? The sole existence of this thread and the tunes posted in here prove the contrary, no? Unless I completely misunderstood your point?
some genredefining shit to get it out of the way >>>
The whole aesthetic is played out. It was cool when L.I.E.S. et al brought it to the table, but nowadays everyone sounds a bit like boring Greg Beato. So many of the tunes in here build upon the same distorted kicks, fat pads and a loopy vocal. It’s essentially music for white middleclass youngsters wearing bucket hats (aka @Harkat ).
I’m not particularly fond of the style, but a tastefully placed tune or two per set can do serious damage.
RKM said he didn’t care about what’s better - a discussion you’ve arguably started in this thread
House is for everyone, and that’s the beauty of it. Such a rich, vast palette of sonics to choose from, there’s something for every set of ears
Fair enough, didn’t realise it was its own catagory or kinda scene.
I just buy whatever sounds good on red eye.
So what about Mood Hut or Rhythm Section?
Are they not classed as proper house either lol
