Anyway, why is it I am always a sucker and get groovy lounge music? I listen to it on the head phones and I think it sounds great. I get home and play it on the speakers, and it sounds like crap that I would never dance to.
So, I managed to get someone to take my "This is Hard House" compelation and got:
- Aaron Simple Volume 6.1 (euphoric trance and breaks)
I'm really liking this one, except track 15. I don't know what he was on when I though up track 15, but I'm guessing he was mixing DMT, E, and nitros in very liberal doses.)
It's some nice dancable funky grooves. Not as fast as the Aaron Simple cd, but not slow enough to be downtempo. Kind of an odd inbetween speed/feel. But it's something I can play and won't put people to sleep, but won't have them all jittery either.
- Midnight Snack Volume One
Why, oh why?!?!? Why do I do this to myself. I hate lounge, but I keep buying it!When I see the NakedMusic logo, I should know to run the other direction! Anyone want to trade this for some DnB, Jungle, or Breaks? Please? Pretty please?
Anyway, I need to check out a local club, Level 8. A couple people who seemed to have good taste invited me to go there after the party, but I had other obligations and couldn't make it. They were all heading over in shorts and t-shirts, so I'm guessing the club doesn't have your normal overbearing negative fashion victim vibe (read, 1015 Fulsom).
Finally, to finish off this music post, I was listening to NPR (I think it was Fresh Air, but I could be wrong), and they had a bit on a new music style appearing in Spain. It's called Bastardo Bacelona. Basicly a fusion of electronic and hip-hop beats to flaminco. It's very dancable. Has a nice beat for mixing, and sound a little different from what you normally here. I'm thinking it's time to check out the world music section and get a new toy.
