  1. Some of the music is very interesting, but the vocals kill it.
  2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TsfQyx4C70 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKdufZcx3W8

  4. Oh man, there are so many. Here are a few that come to mind. http-~~-//www.youtube.com/watch?v=yT0gRc2c2wQ http-~~-//www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ewJqfCeswg
  5. I actually like older IDM. Some of the mid- to late '90s Warp, Skam and Rephlex stuff, for instance, have unbelievable melodic structure.
  6. Nice one, Kalki. I'm an Osho fan too.
  7. For me it was this, in 1997/98, at the age of 26. It took a couple of listens to get an idea of what was going on, but then I was hooked big-time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDbVw6-BPcY
  8. My recos: Shuttle358 - Frame (my best of the naughties, all styles) The Delta - Scizoeffective (ass-kicking tech-trance) Yagya - Rhythm of Snow (beautifully hypnotic chill music)
  9. Dang, I thought Tales... was awful (except for Dorset Perception, which I've listened to a million times). It's like a keyboard wizard trying to make world music. I liked a couple of tracks from the first album, or at least a few bits from a couple of tracks, mainly the step-sequenced voices.
  10. Dark Puppy - Your logo looks like a cock 'n' balls. Just sayin'. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8ZcPpnAHYY
  11. Holy shit, Hotaka by Ubar Tmar? What a crazy-awesome combo. Can't wait to hear it.
  12. Was a big fan of early Depeche Mode, but Enjoy the Silence was a big deal for me as a kid when it came around. http-~~-//www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMfV0sVQ_VU
  13. Tech-trance is what you're looking for. Check out the Soundmute and Boshke Beats labels. If I recall, the techno scene really started this style, and some psy artists incorporated it, so there's more to be found in that arena if you're really interested.
  14. I don't hear it. Are you sure you have the times correct?
  15. They were big in the '90s.
  16. I was born exactly 113 years after On the Origin of Species was published. Letter 113 — Beaufort, Francis to FitzRoy, Robert, 1 Sept 1831 My dear Sir I believe my friend Mr Peacock of Triny College Cambe has succeeded in getting a “Savant” for you— A Mr Darwin grandson of the well known philosopher and poet—full of zeal and enterprize and having contemplated a voyage on his own account to S. America Let me know how you like the idea that I may go or recede in time | F B UNCANNY
  17. I learned recently that a substantial portion of the United States is going to have a total solar eclipse in 2017. Very fucking exciting. I'll have to drive a bit south if I want to experience the true total eclipse, but it would be mostly total from where I am. Anyway, Total Eclipse.

    Insomnia

    I've been doing a bunch of research based on a panic attack I had earlier in the week (caused ultimately by hypoglycemia, which in turn was caused by other things), and have discovered an enormous amount of information related to diet that affects all levels of one's existence, including sleep issues. There's never a simple answer, and the knowledge is like an onion with layer after layer after layer... Anyway, perhaps this might be useful: Link Good luck. I know how horrible it can be.
  19. The Modernist had some really cool music from that time period: http-~~-//www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSEPleyzt7A Also check out Gas' album Pop. Not exactly like Ishii, but interesting.
  20. I read it a very long time ago, but I remember it being very weird. I've read pretty much all of Hesse's stuff and I definitely prefer the early to middle stuff he wrote, before he got into heavy mystical motifs.
  21. Very true. And FWIW I agree entirely with Antares. Music from the heart is the best music. Hell, people are still interpreting music by people who died centuries ago. Being an aspiring artist can be really tricky. No one wants to tell someone their music is shitty, or answer difficult technical questions in laymen's terms that noobs can understand. So it becomes a steep, frustrating, lonely climb. I think people should be more honest and informative with aspiring artists, especially those who are asking for it. P.S. It looks like Elysium is open to advice.
