MUFF WIGGLER Forum Index -> Artist Discussion  
Author complex new electronic music?
bouzoukijoe1
hi all,

excuse the naivete, but I'm trying to find some new music to listen to and need some suggestions. I'm looking for new electronic music that has a certain level of production complexity with dense modulation and timbral variety sort of like some forms of classical music (in terms of the variations, not the literal timbre). hopefully something with in 4/4 time.

sadly all I can think of is Skrillex. lots of people hate him for his style, but I can't think of too many new electronic artists who create as many (and as dense) modulation changes *and* make it sound good (both in terms of texture and timbre). the other artists I can think of are Autechre or Squarepusher from back in the day. not that they worked strictly in 4/4, but you get the idea. I'd like to find some new artists and I know they're out there. any recommendations?

sorry in advance if I'm out of the loop and miss any obvious new artists.

I would fully recommend Front Line Assembly. There would recent release Echogentic makes Skrillex sound like Justin Beiber in my opinion. Dont get me wrong, I did like Skillrex for a time but it has become tiresome lately. FLA has been making electronic music since the 80's. If you like there most recent then begin to go backward through their history. You will not be disappointed.
morphic
agreed FLA always bring something new to the mix while keeping to their roots

Dave TIPPER (production value through the roof) and his take on the modern tweaky talking bass bullshit is the only one i can stand. i think it's because he knows a dancefloor better than most and has been doing it for 25 years.



bouzoukijoe1
thanks for the recommendations

Tipper - holy cow. sick!!! I love how he uses a variety of sounds and the reverb ... amazing

oh wait that's a remix (below) - is that his own original too?

iVardensphere
Apparently link won't work. seriously, i just don't get it

Insert cool music here.
iVardensphere
No bloody idea why that's not working. Am I having a mental breakdown?

Either way, check out my buddy Comaduster. Great stuff.
ignatius
if you dig the tipper stuff then you should just spend some time checking out his discography. all over the map and all good.

he did some glitchy IDM stuff w/a collaborator in the 90s that is some of my favorite from the era.

also, some really awesome neck snapping hip hop.. tons and tons of breaks and bassy stuff. really just funky as hell.

a bunch of his stuff is over at addictech.

http://www.addictech.com/?atech_id=u52uqdvqbvt16fshls2i8bhsi5&keywords =tipper

but he's been around forever.. he's around my age (40ish) and he's been doing this since he was a kid of 16 or something.

Different from the other stuff suggested, but I really like this guy:

[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=2398889685 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small]

Somewhat glitchy electronica with live instruments / jazzy / neoclassical in parts. Amazing production.

Cheers
Azbu


Edit:Just one track from an excellent album
cretaceousear
That Floex track is great - not 4/4 !
I haven't found the glitchy bits yet though
I'd say its definitely in the European modern jazz area - ERM
His name is Thomas Dvorak - I like the older Dvorak too

edit > ECM is what I meant

I've tried several times. Bah humbug.
Dr. Sketch-n-Etch
I like old Autechre (Amber, Tri Repetae. etc), and some of the newer stuff. The middle stuff (Confield, Draft 7.30, etc, like the stuff that accompanies that self-destructing washing machine) is the stuff I can't stand, unless its being used as the soundtrack for an exploding washing machine. Then it's pretty effective.
Nelson Baboon
an exploding washing machine needs no soundtrack.

autechre is not for everyone. no biggie. i'm not gonna get butt hurt if people don't like the stuff i like.. life is just too short for that kind of behavior.

i tease my friends who say "they were better before..." and tell them they are just pussies and old and need to listen harder. razz

as for other "complex" electronic music there's some good leads in this thread.

i wish squarepusher would make something interesting again. he's off doing LED helmet music. haven't gone bonkers for his stuff since go plastic and a few random bits after it.

there is new blood in the water though and i'm hopeful for good interesting tunes to listen to. there's just so much out there to weed through to find the gems ya know..

Clark does some cool shit now and then. sometimes the masters are a bit too loud for my ears but otherwise some pretty rockin tunes.

there are veins of music that become these little trends for a while.. really wet sounding beats.. filters and delays and slop all churning and a very submerged sound.. then you get the really chopped stuff that makes a left turn ever 3rd beat or something..

to find the good shit ya need to stumble on to a label or some youtube channel that collects things and find a bunch of new artists that way.

also worth checking out -

Einoima

http://einoma.com

rony and suzy

http://lamadameaveclechien.bandcamp.com/album/dog004-others-are-us-ep

some other random stuff on that label.
Scories
Autechre stands for AUdio TECHnology REsearch. They're certainly not here to promote status quo in electronic music and I'm glad they happen to exist. They pushed electronic music more than anybody else IMHO.

Thay haven't done many 4/4 tracks, but this one is rather cool:

(from 5:00, the track gets really cool)

Clark is an other talented artist. His last remix album beast/feast should please you.

Check out the whole album, it's genius. http://store.floex.cz/album/zorya
The glitchiness is there in the production, but never as obvious and overstated as some, it's more used as some hairiness and dust around the edges.

Tomasz is a lovely guy, and a fantastic musician SlayerBadger!

Access To arasaka
Tineidae
Many peeps on their label -> Tympanik Audio

Sluggart

Squarepusher

Aphex Twin

Of course Autechre is one of the best band ever regarding the genre and hard working audiowork

Ochre <- holymotherofgod

Telefon Tel Aviv

But there is a lot. a lot more !

And please skrillex suck ballz his music isnt complex synthwork is kinda heavy but tipper is way over and Datsik or Excision are way over him in the "gorestep" scene.

+1 for checking out Tympanik Audio. I'm mildly biased since I do a lot of freelance engineering for them, but there's a nice variety of electronic music on their roster.
cbeefheartuk
Chris Douglas who records as Dalglish..
Benacah Drann Deachd is an electronic masterpiece.. new album on PAN is pretty good too.. also released a great album as Seaes ..
revoltcrews
lots of various nefarious styles from this crew in oak'less'land, ca

http://katabatik.org/

99% of their music is produced/performed on hardware.

i've been to many of their shows. insane.

I've recently discovered the Tympanik Audio label, and have bought a load of their most excellent albums, including:

Tineidae, Lights
r.roo, innerheaven
Comaduster, Hollow Worlds
Erode, Horizon

All great stuff! Ill certainly be ordering again 8_)

I mastered the Tineidae album. Mr. Green I really liked the Erode album, has some cool Gridlock-type moments on it. (I had no part in that one, Alexander D. is a fine mastering engineer himself.)
You should check out Stendeck as well. He has a few excellent releases on Tympanik, but my favorite of his is "Faces". Not sure what label that one is on as I don't have the CD handy.
eolianmollisol
not sure if these will be up your alley:

loscil (one of my favorites)
panabrite
discoverer (just a bunch of ear candy really)
four tet (not all electronic, but I dig it)
data
naono
andrew pekler (cue is by far my favorite album)
oneohtrix point never
casino versus japan
g0lem
sablesheen
Glad someone mentioned Emptyset. Absolutely outstanding. The last LP is like sculptures made in sound.
Hardly 4/4 though. It's kind of strange why OP asks specifically for this timing. IMO, interesting electronics begin when you leave 4/4 territory, whereas within it's kind of rarity.

so, in no particular order neither with any respect to timing, off the top of my head:

<more minimal techno, 4/4 happens!>
Raime "Quarter Turns Over a Living Line"
ADMX-71 "Second System"
Andy Stott "Luxury Problems"
Lucy "Churches Schools and Guns"
Donatto Dozzy's Voices from the Lake
Gaizer presents Void "No Sudden Movements"
Monolake "Silence"

<more experimental/jazzy/improv>
Pan Sonic (weird noone mentioned them)
Mika Vainio's projects
Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer "Re:ECM" (very different to anything else by Villalobos..gorgeous work based on ECM catalogue)
The Haxan Cloak "Excavation"
Moritz von Oswald Trio
Radian

<more ambient/sample-field rec/microsound>
Taylor Deupree
Komet and Frank Bretschneider
Steinbruchel
Kangding Ray
Daisuk
Jar Moff!

New Plastikman is great!

Always Autechre for me.

after a lot of years i'm still digging funckarma & roel funcken



same with arovane - love his new album

another favourite is hecq

deadlyfriendly
I think Patten is worth checking out, the newest album bounces back and forth between head nodding and experimental

Daisuk
Good call! patten is one of my favorite producers at the moment. He's got a knack for odd melodies and bringing in surprisingly catchy elements all the time. Very busy mixes, but they work really well. Serious talent, very creative work. smile

If you like Floex check out the soundtrack he did for a game called Machinarium ! it's pretty much my favorite album ever. So full of life and character. So pleasing on the earszzzzz
austinedward08
two recent instant classics to me personally at least

sd laika - kinda like... free form grime or something crazy like that, has a very "uk" sound to it.

https://soundcloud.com/tri_angle_records/sd-laika-idiot-thug

arca - "post-internet" the progressions/transitions are very unexpected, similar to recent burial

https://soundcloud.com/arca-2/uenqifjr3yua

then there's this whole future pop movement (see Sophie, A.G. Cook, PC Music)... not exactly what you're looking for, but very important in the current progression of the "underground" I saw a dj set from sophie recently, never seen a dancefloor move with so little percussion, shit was crazy.
lilakmonoke
krillex and tipper in one sentence is quite the insult ... to me complexity is not in the sounds its in composition.

if you like leftfield dubstep/techno i think dave huisman as 2562 is really interesting



otherwise nothing comes close in complex thinking to ventian snares as last step and its all analog, too.

yes i like. first cd this year. i should buy more.

Plus one on Floex for the production, and Richard Divine for sound design.

Here's a teaser mix for an album that is a little dated now (1996) but might be along the lines of what the original poster was looking for -

For complexity investigate the last Kerridge album





Thoses guy did some of my favorites album this year
Restive Plaggona
Unearth Noise

Not all of them are complex in the way they process 10k different sound but more on the structure and complexity of the soundesign and research of a futuristic sound

The Restive Plagonna tape kills, so good SlayerBadger!

Yeah, I've been digging some Stockhausen lately as well (Gesang der Junglinge, Kontacte, Octophonie, etc). Also digging Charles Wuorinen's "Time's Encomium".

The Boulez stuff is a bit different, though -- a computer responds to real performers in real time. It's more subtle, but I think it's a bit deeper.

For my money, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith is making the weirdest, most human sounding music of anyone in modular. Also, the beats on the new Moor Mother album are incredible. She's uses a lot of modular as well.

This is a quality thread! Found so many AWESOME new producers. Thanks guys.

Tipper's always been one of my favorite producers ever, he's already been mentioned, but I just needed to put a good word in for him.

I think Savant is a brilliant producer! If you've never heard some of his music, he's pretty mad!

Always been a fan of Shpongle and Carbon Based Lifeforms as well if you want to go more into the psychedelic side of things.

Especially from the EP on Lee Gamble's label. The newest one played it a bit safer.

there are different approaches to "complex" electronic music. one is built around "a milion smart events per second", which i find totally uninteresting by now.

the other is complexitiy in time structure, harmonics etc. thats where the real frontier is. the best example i know is "last step" which is actually the analog side of mr. funk aka venetian snares.

i think these tracks are all programmed on a machinedrum, clocked in renoise and performed on a modular in real time which is even more astounding:

https://www.attackmagazine.com/features/long-read/venetian-snares-lets -all-be-real/



lilakmonoke
some of loscils work is another good example for "good complex" but thats a completely different sound.

these tracks are sequenced in max with home made sequencers and "folded" convolution sounds. im trying to do something similar with pure data, because that way you have to completely rethink your compositional basics.

id love to find more stuff along these lines but its hard to come by ...

lilakmonoke
just to illustrate what im talking about. here is a track that is based on an unusual subdivision of 24 (2x3x4) in 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 4. ... is that complex or simple?

thank you... he seems like a thoughtful young guy. i really dig the Glasz ep, it somehow recalls "Perlence" (Quaristice) by Autechre - the rhythmic patterns and flow of it. Lanark Artefax realizes it in a more satisfying way, kinda.. crisp (ultra-clean) sounds, attack, and impact--very effective flurries of percussion.

I love loscil's works especially sea island. I've never been to Vancouver but he takes me there, in fact I've often thought I would live there if I could, which is odd having never been.

Sea Island is a real place -- it's where the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is. It's an interesting place which has inspired more than one synth artist (I actually attended a live Serge performance there years ago).

Thanks Dr, yep I did a bit of Google Earth tourism smile


Offtopic: by the way, nice location for a campus you have there.

I think he's the best producer around, and if you have the opportunity to see him live, close your eyes, go for it.

Yup. Roly Porter is a very special producer

Coming from a 170 background, I've a big soft spot for the Auxiliary sound; ASC and Synth Sense deserve an honourable mention
Although the releases below aren't exactly new, the label is still very current and pushing fresh sounds

Interesting thread! Really digging the floex stuff, roli porter was already on my list but really like some (not all) of his stuff. Threads like these are very inspirational.

I'd like to think that my own stuff is also heading in the more complex direction but probably not even half there.

xuiqen - "Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps"

kind of enamored with these guys.. lotta detail to their tracks, recalls later Autechre etc. not sure if it's very complex, or if it's just complex-sounding.. either way, it has good flow.

I've been super into all the new electronic music being submitted to the wonderfully continuously updated podcast/broadcast:

Data Cult Audio

A new artist every month. Lots of music to get into and learn about all the fantastic musicians contributing.

From the site:
Data Cult Audio is not an entity so much as a mission to explore and curate sound, music and noise created by electronic means. A mission that seeks to move beyond the boundaries and into your head.
Our goal is to present and expose others to the sound explorations of different artists. The common thread is that performances are rooted in electronics. Genres are not our business… sound is.

that's a classic. too bad you don't have the vinyl. some of that stuff sounds amazing at 33rpm.

also, their other albums are amazing as well.. "Brown out" and "Demissions". must haves imo. some of my fav things.


I second it sounding great at 33rpm
