really? loads of those tapepacks in this threads have hosts, are they that different to Tippa?
and while its clearly about abandon, if anything i find this scene too sonically "intelligent", too clean, too Euro.
i find this with house heads a lot tho: i take a macro view and see the similarities, they take a micro view and see the differences. i think the differences are too minuscule to be called differences; they disagree.
"nah mate, banging techy house is completely different to techy banging house, you have literally no idea..."
"erm but you have 4 straight kick drums a bar, offbeat hats and techy pads that keep repeating a lot."
but i always remember as a teenager how bored and itchy and restless and disatisfied i'd feel if for whatever reason i had ended up in a house or techno club. i couldn't last more than an hour maximum. the monotony of it drove me up the wall. and the people in house clubs are too blandly good looking.
You just need to get super hammered before you turn up then do a pill and get even more hammered to some german acid. you'll fucking love it. Maybe @IdleRich can point you in the right direction, I hardly go out anymore.
