Drippy/melodic/busy music
« on: June 02, 2018, 12:35:36 PM »
Yes

I'm thinking of electronic/ ambient stuff with big plinky drippy, perhaps echoey melodies at the forefront and preferably busy sounding beats and drippy effects complimenting them. I guess some post-rock/drum and bass may apply too:

Great stuff and your track is one of my favourites from Vale

Have you checked out the Planet Dog compilations Feed Your Head - especially 4, which features Starseeds but drippers like this

Solar Budd - Blue Digital

Rain - Prism

from earlier comps

Code - Parsifal (their album is actually quite Goth/industrial, so this is an oddity)

Opik - Travelling Without Moving

and a drippy Eat Static tune

Eat Static - Uforic Undulance

Couple of well oldies among the following (which as a whole might fall short a bit in terms of the preferred busy underpinnings):

State Azure - Converging
Freescha - Boyrgurl (and Up The Coast, a crunchier track from the same album)
Sven Vath - Harlequin Plays Bells (a remix thereof)
Giles Reaves - Wunjo
Hollan Holmes - Timespace

This is the one I immediately thought of when I read the thread title.

Boards of Canada - The Devil is in the Details https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2jNdHnOsG8
Röyksopp - Eple https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qczr6Z2qtpE (hm not a great choice)

Cheers, all good, particularly Opik, however I regard the texture of most of the melodies in those as squelchy over drippy. Analog sequences etc. I'm really after tracks with more organic sounding drippiness, which in fairness I didn't specify, but hoped the opening salvo would give a flavour.

Fair enough. Just couldn't think of what you wanted other than Ulrich Schnauss and TD related stuff you posted. Music overload. Have you heard the Laraaji Sun Transformations Remixed album? Some drippy stuff on there.

It's nice hearing them anyway.

Hollan Holmes - Timespace

This is really good, dramatic and just staying the right side of the line from that pompous sub-Robert Miles stuff made by Americans that you get around YouTube a lot.

Hollen Holmes - Timespace

Doesn't really fill the bill here, being driven by sequencer patterns rather than beatz, but it's very nicely and astringently crafted, isn't it. I think the album it's taken from does stray into pompous territory from time to time, but it's a hard style to tame and (re)shape, that portentous Berlin School gathering-clouds type of thing.

Hasty appears on the best Dream Injection comp, I think 5 or 6, which is packed full of busy goodnesss

No. 6, it appears.  Hadn't come across that series of comps before, but they look pretty neat.

Nice, wasn't sure about it for the first half, but the second half really did the business. Also it is the closest suggestion soundwise to the kind of thing I was after, so thanks!

There's a lot of lo-fi stuff about at the moment, a lot of which I can take or leave, but Rezzett is someone who, in my opinion, is doing something great with the sound. Lovely organic-sounding techno-inspired warmth. His self-titled album from this year is very good. Here's two tracks from that:

Wet Bilge

Tarang

<that "mmmmyeeahhh" noise Adam Buxton makes on the Adam & Joe Show when he's doing his top five candle fiddles>
