    Mashup Albums/Artists

    By far the best mashup artist I've heard is Sydney-based Wax Audio. There are both streams and full downloads (mp3 320)- two albums and three EPs. There's a relatively small amount of hip-hop in this guy's work, so it's a perfect starting place for you Faustt.

    she - electronica you should be listening to.

    I don't know what you're waffling about, Deathtank.

    she - electronica you should be listening to.

    I want to like this, I really do. The production's top-notch, but most of the melodies just feel too... bright and cheesy. Perhaps I'm just becoming a cynical bastard in my... old age? ( ) Also, is Supersonic a Mega Man remix? EDIT: Okay, I've listened to some more and I'm opening up to it a bit more. Nebula may just have convinced me.
  4. Accepting mine. I've begun working on it and have already learned a thing or two about Reason.

    Billy Joel is a dick.

    So, he's divorcing his third wife.

  7. C - Took cello lessons for about six years, took music class in high school for four years.
  8. Count me in. I just got a midi/usb cable for my (rather crummy) keyboard, so I'll see if I can put it to use. It's kind of sad that I started composing music five years ago but am yet to truly finish anything... this may well be the kick up the butt I'm due for.
  9. Nice tutorial. I'd definitely like to see some stuff like this for Reason too.

    The Lost Albums

    I'm a big fan of Cake- their albums are all quite solid from start to finish. It's too bad they're mostly only recognised for The Distance, Short Skirt/Long Jacket and Sheep Go to Heaven. Pendulum's album Hold Your Colour is also a great example. Slam overshadowed some really great tracks. And then the re-release replaced perhaps the two best songs on the album with two of sheer mediocrity.

    Invaders Must Die: the new Prodigy album

    Which ones, if I might ask? Printer Jam was cool, but felt totally out of place on Hospital mix 7. I quite enjoyed No Matter What, Damage, Light's Really Bad, Greed, From Memory. Perhaps try them again, if you still don't like 'em, well... not much I can do I guess. Try Logistics' and Danny Byrd's albums from last year! (Uh, do we need a drum & bass-specific thread? )

    Invaders Must Die: the new Prodigy album

    I really enjoyed White Collar Grime, but Wipe Your Tears was probably the weakest track on the album.

    Need name of this song I think this might be what you're looking for?

    Invaders Must Die: the new Prodigy album

    Do you mean the amount of "old skool" 90's techno influence was minimal, or it was old skool 90's minimal techno? (sorry, just to clarify, cos if you meant the former, I'd be inclined to say that the amount of old skool rave influence was fairly outstanding. If you meant the latter, I'm not hearing any minimal techno at all... ) Also, another UK artist with a recent album release well worth mentioning is Mistabishi, of Hospital Records. His debut album Drop was great (reaching #2 on the iTunes download chart behind The Prodigy). Really fresh drum & bass and dubstep, highly recommended. I think it's the hook in Invaders Must Die. It's terrible, as are the vocals on Thunder for that matter. I'd argue that these are the weakest points of the album. Basically in reiteration of my previous post I'm fairly ambivalent about this album. Omen (the Noisia remix in particular) and Warrior's Dance were really enjoyable. All in all though, I'm happy that The Prodigy are back.

    Which Pokémon game would be good to start with?

    I still love Red version, and I enjoy it's plot/narrative (is that the right word to use?) the most, as well as it's music. However, for a newcomer to the series, given the poor/mediocre graphics, bugs and lack of features it may not be the best place to start. On the other hand, I love Diamond too, but because it has a perfectly refined battle system. It's fun to battle and trade with friends online, etc. The plot in this game was, well, bad. Also, the music wasn't at all memorable. Crystal is probably the best choice, as I believe it has the best balance between plot and gameplay. Of what I played of Sapphire, it wasn't as fun. There were too many bells and whistles, but nothing felt greatly improved (save for the graphics).
