    the DRAMATIC

    There does seem to be a cold inhuman edge to it though. I think that's what I was getting at. More so than techno because techno is tied to the human heart beat.

    the DRAMATIC

    Does it want you to dance though? I think it's indifferent to such mortal concerns Nah, I was on high strength painkillers when I wrote that dramatic music is against the human body. Not sure if I believe it or not in hindsight

    the DRAMATIC

    I really can't stand music like this and kinda assumed that all of our lot did so it's good to read the other side of the argument here. There's something about tunes like that Christine and xcx tune that seem to me to work against rather than with, the human body. Their blockiness and crashing...

    every song that sounds like this ever made

    Yeah it's interesting this cos in a way "bad" music isn't really bad anymore. Like my immediate reaction to that Martinez brothers thing is that it's awful. But it's not awful in the way that, for example, Brandon Block was awful. Lots of the tunes the Martinez brothers play in that set are...

    And also - never *too much*. I think that's an important thing with this stuff. There's always a self restraint to it. Its pathological. This constriction, this self awareness at all times. have fun but don't embarrass yourself I'm sure selfies have something to do with it OBVIOUSLY

    I think dissensus anti-hero Clive Martin once wrote a thing about how nothing good ever happens at a roof top bar event

    Yes there's like a poise and tastefulness to them. I mean tastefulness as a bad thing. You know like when you go round someone's flat and everything is really *nice* but it's unnerving too. It all coheres to present a very carefully - too carefully- put together picture of the Good Life. I...

    Lots of people find them offensive don't they? To which I think their argument is it's counter to an exoticising over-reverential approach. I lean towards the first view cos I like getting offended at things but im not sure my heart is really in it

    Yes those adverts where it's like softly lit late afternoon, smiley people wearing natural fibres having fun in an unidentifiable modern city as the sun goes down. Lots of that about.

    Sadness

    Kompakt did a load of melancholic house stuff back in the day didn't they. I think they described it as "sitting on the beach, missing your girlfriend ". Which sounds a bit shit but they were on to something Sounds good on drugs on the dancefloor. The confluence of ecstasy and melancholy. That...

    It's got boring talking about sex I reckon It used to be a staple part of conversation but for whatever reason no more. For my lot anyway. Occasionally at the pub someone tries to talk about how attractive someone is but it's as bad as when men tell each other what route they took to get there...

    But theres also more innocent, fresher enthusiasm to lots of the old posts. Not jaded at all. A kind of *hunger* to hear music that is rare now
