>>1173 I just clicked on the link and realized it was Arch Enemy...whoops.
>>1173 Yeah, he was in Carcass for Necroticism and Heartwork before he was in Arch Enemy. I also knew him from Arch Enemy first, since I discovered the early Carcass stuff first.
I've been listening to more classic trance/techno lately. Looking for more recommendations. >Solarstone - Seven Cities (Original Mix) https://yewtu.be/watch?v=wPxoZbEA7sw >Underworld - Born Slippy https://yewtu.be/watch?v=iTFrCbQGyvM >Robert Miles - Children https://yewtu.be/watch?v=CC5ca6Hsb2Q

Discovered Onoken recently, he has some great songs. Wish I found him sooner. >Onoken - Include https://yewtu.be/watch?v=Zx4mN0U7gMw >Onoken - Felys https://yewtu.be/watch?v=kF9E5v8IXd4 >Onoken - Vijore >vid related Every Vijore video on Youtube is either gameplay footage or the 2020 remaster. I like the remaster as well, but it's not relevant to a 2000s thread.
It seems you can post MP3s with covers if the cover is a JPEG.

>>1406 Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music was nice for that back when Flash was still around. I know there's a song list floating around somewhere. Here are some pieces I discovered from there: >Plastikman - Consumed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRjq6d7Yrys >Cybernaut - Hyrdrophonix https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCAhrJQZwNU >Resistance D - Cosmic Love https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7M-ZPzJe_pc I'm more into house than any of the other genres, but I'd recommend listening to the Green Album from Orbital if you haven't heard it.
>>1456 I didn't know the site used Flash in the past, but it uses HTML5 now.
>>1457 It's also kind of a pain to browse now after the redesign.
>>1406 You might like Airbase. These are some of his 2000s songs. >Airbase - Tangerine https://yewtu.be/watch?v=RsrSm-cjVrQ >Airbase feat Floria Ambra - Denial https://yewtu.be/watch?v=95-ftDriIQc >Airbase - Dreamer (2002, closer to 90s trance if you prefer that) https://yewtu.be/watch?v=7PoSVdSIOW0 There's also Kebu. He's not specifically a trance artist (or a classic artist) but he plays most of his songs on analog synth so they have an older style to them. I've played some of his songs with my parents and they reminded them of New Order.
>>1447 Different anon. Those songs bring back the feels. Thanks. Anyone happen to know the artist name of a melodic chillout/relaxing song titled Grandfather or something like that? I heard it on a trance/psytrance/chillout stream years ago and loved it, but didn't note details at the time. It doesn't have shamanistic or vocal elements from what I remember. It's not by Tyurgen Kam or Antequera.
In the last year or so I started to feel nostalgic towards all the pop music I used to hate and couldn't stand...did it happen to anyone else?
>>1622 Yes. Turns out when media gets worse and we get new shit, the lesser shit doesn't seem so bad anymore. (I used to use Foxes - Youth as an example of an actually good recent pop song, but then I realized it's 9 years old now and not so "recent" anymore.) I still hate rap though, that hasn't changed.
>>1622 >In the last year or so I started to feel nostalgic towards all the pop music I used to hate and couldn't stand...did it happen to anyone else? I got over a lot of my genre-related hangups a long time ago. I'd actually be open to giving early-2000s pop a chance at this point. Right now I'm going through a bunch of hair metal albums and seeing what good stuff I can find. As much as I love the style of it, I'm not impressed by the songwriting from the bands I've been checking out. It seems like it was really spotty in terms of quality, which shouldn't be that surprising given how oriented it was toward singles and hit songs. But other roughly contemporary genres with a commercial focus, like New Wave and synthpop, didn't seem to have that problem. Unfortunately, I don't feel like I missed out on much back in high school by only listening to some of the bigger bands. >>1625 >I still hate rap though, that hasn't changed. Rap for me is a genre that has some good songs, but they're few and far between. Even then I really only like the instrumental aspect of it, and trip hop and downtempo can beat rap at its own game.
>>1630 >Rap for me is a genre that has some good songs, but they're few and far between. Pretty much how I feel. There's a couple rap songs I like, a couple I don't mind, the rest I can't stand.
>>1636 It boggles my mind how anyone who likes music can have it as their favorite genre.

I've been trying to find more music in this style but it's left me sprawled out across 5 different genres, does anyone know an easier way to find music in this vein?
>>2299 >sprawled out across 5 different genres That's because they are different genres, they simply share elements (and synthesizers) but even then not all the time... Electronic music is a rabbit hole of (sub)genres, especially in the scope of the 1990s which had heavy experimentation as well as rapid development and "cross-pollination" of music genres. If you wanna do some exploration go on Discogs and search up a record you like, then get lost in the "Recommendations" section at the bottom of the page. The general/umbrella genres for the posted tracks so far: >BT - Smartbomb >DDR - Groove 2001 >Overseer - Supermoves Breakbeat/Breaks. >Silverblue - Step Back >Veracocha - Carte Blanche >Cybernaut - Hydrophonix >Darude - Sandstorm Trance.

What instruments/keyboards/soundfonts are the most common used throughout Y2K music? So far all I've been able to find actual names for are Moog synths and SuperSaws. What other synths are there?
>>2342 I think I read that Bjorn Lynne has used a Kurzweil sampler in the past, but I'm not sure for what music specifically. You really can't go wrong with a Roland JV-1080, which was a synth that was all over the place from the mid '90s into the early 2000s. They can sound pretty corny, but sometimes that's just what you want. They're also capable of making really nice pad sounds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uus94l_wVP8 Here's a demo of a patch set some guy made that shows its more futuristic side: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIoYylo7nS4 They should still be pretty cheap too, although even digital vintage synthesizers aren't as cheap as they used to be.

I hated emos and everything emo back then, but I love it now.
>>2429 I hated it then and still don't like it. That song's okay though. It has a pleasantly glammy feeling to it.
>>2419 MONO is unlike most other post rock bands, being much more noisy, metal influenced. Those heavy guitar layers and harmonic melodies really evoke this melancholy early 2000s feel in me. Idk Maybe it's just me
>>2436 I don't like this noise and "post (doom) metal" or whatever shit that evolved out of it though
