Music of the 1990's and 2000's Fellow Time Traveler 09/08/2019 (Sun) 01:14:23 No.14
>These guys think they're bad because they walk slow... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRiH3jNE7OY
>>952 makes me think of the faulconer score for DBZ. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgJ1heSrskY&list=PL836DDC1A20726279
>>954 The faulconer score will always sound better on the GBA to me honestly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtbACzBwshc
>>953 >the 80s was basically the last era of innovation in the synth world. (PPG, D-50, DX7, EMUII, Juno). I agree. Even the digital Roland stuff from the '90s that I like was basically just following on from what they were already doing in the '80s with the D-50's LA synthesis. >In the 90s and early 2000s you could pick up these keyboards/racks for dirt cheap compared to the boring array of Korg M1 clones and crappy virtual analogues. Even digital rack synths are starting to go up in price now. >"analogue = mystical, warm, phat, fat, lush, authentic". It seems that when people say that they're missing the fact that there are limp-sounding vintage analogs out there. I own one and plan on getting rid of it. >Watching Dave Smith sell out with the Prophet 5 makes me cringe as he was always forward looking. The Prophet reboot honestly seems to be exactly what I've been hoping for in a synthesizer for years. The previous DSI/Sequential polysynths had way more features, but the Prophet 5 seems to nail the sound of the old Prophets in a way that the Prophet 08 and Rev2 didn't. That's not to say that they aren't capable of making good sounds, but I've always wanted something that sounded like an authentic, high-quality vintage analog polysynth right from the start. I want something idiotproof that I can just turn on and get convincing bread-and-butter patches from instantly instead of having to mess with a bunch of parameters trying to age or beef up basic sounds. It's expensive, but if I end up liking it it might be the only analog polysynth I'll ever want. A Jupiter 8 remake would be the only one that would really interest me, but I'm not sure if I'd feel like I'd need one. >Innovators like brian eno, michael cretu, depeche mode didn't give a fuck about technical details and just wanted to create. Being a gearslut really kills creativity. Being autistic over instruments can be an asset in terms of attention to detail, but it's highly detrimental in terms of actually getting things made.
>Slayer: Divine Intervnetion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8htAULV2Lo >Megadeth: Countdown to Extinction https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hk1LzKELoo >Scatterbrain: Don't Call Me Dude https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbLhHtaVIO4 >System of a Down: Sugar https://youtu.be/5vBGOrI6yBk Rammstien: Amerika https://youtu.be/Rr8ljRgcJNM Psychostick: Pluh https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPNkLGl5hGU The metal of the 80's may of went but the 90's and 00's brought some great tunes.
>>1087 I like some of the more nu-metal-ish stuff occasionally, but '90s black metal is really the last metal movement that I have any interest in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coJ_O3YYcNY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuoR8wEW0Bo
>>111 >Green Mantis: Kill the Plague https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jnhhh_F-Mqo The new wave of old school thrash metal has been hit or miss so far but there are good albums out there.
>>1117 The production is one of the big things keeping me away from modern metal. I'm not that into thrash anymore either. I usually just listen to the first Metallica album and Slayer nowadays. Maybe some of the German stuff too. I like some stuff from the 2000s, but I don't keep up with the genre anymore and rarely stumble across anything I find worth listening to. This one's an exception: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zvHpGArLr4 This is one of the most recent rock records I've heard that I actually like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMWHEgrjuOY I'm not even kidding. The vocals are terrible and there's no bass player, but I really like the guitar tone and some of the riffs and the way it mixes early Venom with early Motley Crue.
>>1131 Gotta appreciate Slayer. There is some good metal with decent production out there. But I get what you're saying. I want to hear some good metal with metalcores production. Just without the pussy metalcore bullshit.
>>1132 I'm an analog snob as far as recording goes, although I'm willing to overlook production I don't like to a certain extent if the actual music's good. I've always liked this album, for example, even with the typewriter double-bass drum sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlDq0izluOQ It's ironically a Christian band.
>>1163 It's alright. Not a big fan of the black metal style. I prefer something with a real decent rythem and headbangable riffs. Like this one. >Carcass: Swansong https://youtu.be/agQRIz3DviY
>>1169 As much as I love "Keep on Rotting in the Free World," I was always more into the Symphonies of Sickness sound. Reek of Putrefaction was my introduction to the band, and I still have a soft spot for that one even though I dislike grindcore (with some exceptions). Maybe I just haven't listened to their later releases enough, but I never really got into them. Michael Amott from Heartwork was behind my favorite melodic death metal album though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVv87n8pWdg I get what you mean about the lack of rhythm in black metal, but I like the sense of romanticism and atmospheric bent that even the non-"atmospheric black metal" bands tend to have.
If I remember right Michael Amott was/is in Arch Enemy and that's the first I heard of his guitar work. >Arch Enemy: Instinct https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8iINrdyFIM
>>1173 I just clicked on the link and realized it was Arch Enemy...whoops.
>>1173 Yeah, he was in Carcass for Necroticism and Heartwork before he was in Arch Enemy. I also knew him from Arch Enemy first, since I discovered the early Carcass stuff first.
I've been listening to more classic trance/techno lately. Looking for more recommendations. >Solarstone - Seven Cities (Original Mix) https://yewtu.be/watch?v=wPxoZbEA7sw >Underworld - Born Slippy https://yewtu.be/watch?v=iTFrCbQGyvM >Robert Miles - Children https://yewtu.be/watch?v=CC5ca6Hsb2Q
Open file (4.62 MB 480x480 Onoken - Vijore.webm)
Discovered Onoken recently, he has some great songs. Wish I found him sooner. >Onoken - Include https://yewtu.be/watch?v=Zx4mN0U7gMw >Onoken - Felys https://yewtu.be/watch?v=kF9E5v8IXd4 >Onoken - Vijore >vid related Every Vijore video on Youtube is either gameplay footage or the 2020 remaster. I like the remaster as well, but it's not relevant to a 2000s thread.
It seems you can post MP3s with covers if the cover is a JPEG.

>>1406 You're in luck faggot, I have just what you need. >Armin van Buuren - Communication https://yewtu.be/watch?v=RUxfoyuwbBU >M3 - Bailamos (Matt Darey Mix) https://yewtu.be/watch?v=MMJX5PjvmUg >Veracocha - Carte Blanche https://yewtu.be/watch?v=_6KFq8s2fgg >Pharao - I Show You Secrets (Sandstorm Remix) https://yewtu.be/watch?v=px6bqHvVg5E >Chicane - Saltwater https://yewtu.be/watch?v=ET1-6Bef9xU >Darude - Sandstorm https://yewtu.be/watch?v=61-PXrbs4MA
>>1406 Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music was nice for that back when Flash was still around. I know there's a song list floating around somewhere. Here are some pieces I discovered from there: >Plastikman - Consumed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRjq6d7Yrys >Cybernaut - Hyrdrophonix https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCAhrJQZwNU >Resistance D - Cosmic Love https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7M-ZPzJe_pc I'm more into house than any of the other genres, but I'd recommend listening to the Green Album from Orbital if you haven't heard it.
>>1456 I didn't know the site used Flash in the past, but it uses HTML5 now.
>>1457 It's also kind of a pain to browse now after the redesign.
>>1406 You might like Airbase. These are some of his 2000s songs. >Airbase - Tangerine https://yewtu.be/watch?v=RsrSm-cjVrQ >Airbase feat Floria Ambra - Denial https://yewtu.be/watch?v=95-ftDriIQc >Airbase - Dreamer (2002, closer to 90s trance if you prefer that) https://yewtu.be/watch?v=7PoSVdSIOW0 There's also Kebu. He's not specifically a trance artist (or a classic artist) but he plays most of his songs on analog synth so they have an older style to them. I've played some of his songs with my parents and they reminded them of New Order.
>>1447 Different anon. Those songs bring back the feels. Thanks. Anyone happen to know the artist name of a melodic chillout/relaxing song titled Grandfather or something like that? I heard it on a trance/psytrance/chillout stream years ago and loved it, but didn't note details at the time. It doesn't have shamanistic or vocal elements from what I remember. It's not by Tyurgen Kam or Antequera.
In the last year or so I started to feel nostalgic towards all the pop music I used to hate and couldn't stand...did it happen to anyone else?
>>1622 Yes. Turns out when media gets worse and we get new shit, the lesser shit doesn't seem so bad anymore. (I used to use Foxes - Youth as an example of an actually good recent pop song, but then I realized it's 9 years old now and not so "recent" anymore.) I still hate rap though, that hasn't changed.
>>1622 >In the last year or so I started to feel nostalgic towards all the pop music I used to hate and couldn't stand...did it happen to anyone else? I got over a lot of my genre-related hangups a long time ago. I'd actually be open to giving early-2000s pop a chance at this point. Right now I'm going through a bunch of hair metal albums and seeing what good stuff I can find. As much as I love the style of it, I'm not impressed by the songwriting from the bands I've been checking out. It seems like it was really spotty in terms of quality, which shouldn't be that surprising given how oriented it was toward singles and hit songs. But other roughly contemporary genres with a commercial focus, like New Wave and synthpop, didn't seem to have that problem. Unfortunately, I don't feel like I missed out on much back in high school by only listening to some of the bigger bands. >>1625 >I still hate rap though, that hasn't changed. Rap for me is a genre that has some good songs, but they're few and far between. Even then I really only like the instrumental aspect of it, and trip hop and downtempo can beat rap at its own game.
>>1630 >Rap for me is a genre that has some good songs, but they're few and far between. Pretty much how I feel. There's a couple rap songs I like, a couple I don't mind, the rest I can't stand.
>>1636 It boggles my mind how anyone who likes music can have it as their favorite genre.
