I've been listening to Collective Soul and Days of the New fairly recently.

I was actually really surprised at how much the first Days of the New album reminds me of Alice in Chains:

Post-grunge has a bad reputation because of bands like Nickelback and Creed, but it wasn't always bad.
There is no band that radiated the Y2K aesthetic more than Orgy did. https://youtu.be/NczLNctogZk https://youtu.be/51DEzX0lLY4 Wish I could find more albums with this Y2K futuristic look to them cause I dig it. Missing file >>1681
Gorillaz 19-2000 is the most iconic 2000's song IMHO and it's not because of it's name, the chill atmosphere, the innovative combination of classic animation and 3D etc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXR-bCF5dbM Placebo- Special Needs probably gives the most nostalgic feeling, I heard it quite often in the radio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HClZwFNNMKs Their first two albums were the best and than they slowly deteriorate , turning into emo band. The Smashing Pumpkins - 1979 Weirdly enough I don't think I've ever heard it in the radio, and stumbled upon the band relativity not a long time ago, yet it feels very nostalgic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aeETEoNfOg And more Gorillaz songs, because you just can't have 2000's music without them Clint Eastwood https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1V_xRb0x9aw Tomorrow Comes Today https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiNdcBg3xC8 Dare (my favorite clip wise) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAOR6ib95kQ >>151 I really dig those songs, especially the first one, don't think I ever heard them. They got that nice 2000's edge. >Y2K aesthetic First time I heard this term, interesting Missing files >>1682
The album Kraftwerk did for Expo 2000 is one of my favorite albums of all time. It's a shame the 2000s didn't turn out as good as the music did. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3lR3W9gM1s Missing files >>1683

There's something about turn of the millennium electronic music in general. The dayglo optimism of the period couldn't be more distant from the down-in-the-dumps pessimism of today. Call it fake, plastic, "neoliberal", whatever.... but there was both an innocence and a worldliness in it. Hard to explain, but it was the 2nd summer of love.

>Y2K Aesthetics
Check out the Y2k aesthetic institute account on twitter.
Speaking of Y2K Electronic music, found out about MTV Amp's 2 compilation albums featuring Prodigy, Fatboy Slim and Aphex Twin. Check em out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LGB-mDFadQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3AxhEq1C-I Missing files >>1684
Whenever someone mentions Y2K aesthetics Wipeout always comes to mind. Everything about it just oozes late 90s/early 2000s optimism.
>Weirdly enough I don't think I've ever heard it in the radio

what?? it was top 20 in the UK and the US, and went certified gold in italy and was a massive top seller in Canada? im starting to think you werent there,
>>199 I'm still not much of a fan of that futuristic Y2K style, but the aesthetic really comes across as charming and even friendly to me when you look at how disgustingly bland and cynical things have become nowadays. That was really the last period we had where we were looking forward to the future. I think that era may be why so many Millennials are still so retardedly sanguine about technological advancement. At that point in time it looked like things could still work out.
The Hackers series of albums is a great 90's time capsule. While the first one is just the ost, the rest is pretty much a stylistic compilation. Good shit awaits. https://invidio.us/channel/UCR10DV9sszkATwAXm7ZcT5A Missing files >>1685
Could there ever be a big beat resurgence, or even a synthwave-like scene? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0dxByaPWhM
I always was a huge fan of the soundtrack album from O Brother Where Art Thou, and it helped spark a wider revival of bluegrass and traditional old-time American music in the early 2000's. Here's a full upload of the deluxe anniversary version of the soundtrack. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vFC9QhFvjw IIRC, the soundtrack got a sequel album of sorts called "Down From The Mountain" which was recorded as part of a live tour done to promote the movie and had a mix of songs from the soundtrack and other bluegrass and folk tunes. I owned both CD's back in the day. Missing files >>1686
I only discovered this guy a few years ago, but this record to me feels really evocative of the early 2000s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8l6uEdCTGM It makes me picture a sunny day out in the country, with cornfields and blues skies peppered with fluffy clouds. The settings of movies like Signs and Secondhand Lions come to mind.
repost because of dolphinnigger Remember when industrial metal was big? Missing files >>1687
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiUJaflLKj0 The American soundtrack for the DBZ movies is basically a time capsule of pure early 2000s edge repost because dolphinigger
>>454 That sounds way too edgy for a DBZ production lol, who thought this was a good idea? I generally dislike american soundtracks, they tend to be all rock and edgy while european ones are more electronic. Reminds me of this game, Cool Boarders 2, that had the soundtrack to its american release made up of rock songs, while the european release had a completely different soundtrack of DnB and breakbeat songs. Audio related. The first is a track from the american release (rock), the second is from the european release (DnB), then you have the third also from the european release but mixes both genres.

And some western shit I guess. There's something about grunge, in the middle of so many terrible songs about being a drug addicted piece of trash from a big city there are hidden gems with unique lyricism by skilled musicians who cropped out of nowhere in that generation of people. Missing files >>1694
>>487 Thanks for the music anon, I especially like Kaze no Hane, somewhat reminds me of Woman in Love by Barbra Streisand. Other favorites are Hoshi no Ame and Honoo no Lagrima... I rarely listen to Japanese music but here's my contribution. Please tag your music with cover art, there are plenty of programs like MP3Tag which also tag OGG/FLAC/M4A. Looks much better on a page than a slew of music notes. Missing file >>1695
>>497 Meh, if I'm going to stick a cover image in a lossy audio file, I'd rather increase the audio bitrate instead. Have this song which I don't really know if it came out in the 90s, the CD it's in is from 1994 but it's a character song for a 1981 anime. Missing file >>1696
>>502 >Meh, if I'm going to stick a cover image in a lossy audio file, I'd rather increase the audio bitrate instead. You're too technical. It's not about any of that, it's about the aesthetics. Cover thumbnails look way better and help distinguish songs. Missing files >>1697

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Efkf1RQOcUE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UGrbk2jKss https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyoqvUAV5n4 This probably barely fits /y2k/ given the 80s and 90s music put together but I like how well Michael Jackson's songs and old Sonic music mash up together.
Probably my favorite version of the song. The trippy mid 90s CG video too is some fantastic shit. Missing file >>1699
>>634 Dancing Fantasy was the first thing to come to mind when I read your post.
One thing I miss about the second half of the '90s and early 2000s is those unabashedly digital synthesizer sounds you used to hear constantly in soundtrack music. Those synths were capable of interesting sounds you can't get out of a traditional analog synthesizer, and even the cheesy imitations of other instruments I sometimes find appealing.
>>952 the 80s was basically the last era of innovation in the synth world. (PPG, D-50, DX7, EMUII, Juno). In the 90s and early 2000s you could pick up these keyboards/racks for dirt cheap compared to the boring array of Korg M1 clones and crappy virtual analogues. now the music (gear) industry has become reactionary to that era by shilling expensive analogue crap only to inflate the false dichotomy. "digital = cold, stale, thin, harsh, repetitive numbers in a computer" "analogue = mystical, warm, phat, fat, lush, authentic". Watching Dave Smith sell out with the Prophet 5 makes me cringe as he was always forward looking. To be fair, synth sounds have been so solidified in people's minds that people buy synths to make those sounds, not new ones, just as if they were buying a guitar / piano. Modern game / film composers all use the same 5 sounds. Imagine the opening to a new film, you can already hear the "felt piano" sample playing some pretentiously sparse lydian (meandering / uncertain) motif, followed by some ambiguous string drones, while the camera pans around some empty landscape to be met by the narration. Innovators like brian eno, michael cretu, depeche mode didn't give a fuck about technical details and just wanted to create. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rk_sAHh9s08
>>952 makes me think of the faulconer score for DBZ. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgJ1heSrskY&list=PL836DDC1A20726279
>>954 The faulconer score will always sound better on the GBA to me honestly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtbACzBwshc
>>953 >the 80s was basically the last era of innovation in the synth world. (PPG, D-50, DX7, EMUII, Juno). I agree. Even the digital Roland stuff from the '90s that I like was basically just following on from what they were already doing in the '80s with the D-50's LA synthesis. >In the 90s and early 2000s you could pick up these keyboards/racks for dirt cheap compared to the boring array of Korg M1 clones and crappy virtual analogues. Even digital rack synths are starting to go up in price now. >"analogue = mystical, warm, phat, fat, lush, authentic". It seems that when people say that they're missing the fact that there are limp-sounding vintage analogs out there. I own one and plan on getting rid of it. >Watching Dave Smith sell out with the Prophet 5 makes me cringe as he was always forward looking. The Prophet reboot honestly seems to be exactly what I've been hoping for in a synthesizer for years. The previous DSI/Sequential polysynths had way more features, but the Prophet 5 seems to nail the sound of the old Prophets in a way that the Prophet 08 and Rev2 didn't. That's not to say that they aren't capable of making good sounds, but I've always wanted something that sounded like an authentic, high-quality vintage analog polysynth right from the start. I want something idiotproof that I can just turn on and get convincing bread-and-butter patches from instantly instead of having to mess with a bunch of parameters trying to age or beef up basic sounds. It's expensive, but if I end up liking it it might be the only analog polysynth I'll ever want. A Jupiter 8 remake would be the only one that would really interest me, but I'm not sure if I'd feel like I'd need one. >Innovators like brian eno, michael cretu, depeche mode didn't give a fuck about technical details and just wanted to create. Being a gearslut really kills creativity. Being autistic over instruments can be an asset in terms of attention to detail, but it's highly detrimental in terms of actually getting things made.
>Slayer: Divine Intervnetion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8htAULV2Lo >Megadeth: Countdown to Extinction https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hk1LzKELoo >Scatterbrain: Don't Call Me Dude https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbLhHtaVIO4 >System of a Down: Sugar https://youtu.be/5vBGOrI6yBk Rammstien: Amerika https://youtu.be/Rr8ljRgcJNM Psychostick: Pluh https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPNkLGl5hGU The metal of the 80's may of went but the 90's and 00's brought some great tunes.
>>1087 I like some of the more nu-metal-ish stuff occasionally, but '90s black metal is really the last metal movement that I have any interest in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coJ_O3YYcNY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuoR8wEW0Bo
>>111 >Green Mantis: Kill the Plague https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jnhhh_F-Mqo The new wave of old school thrash metal has been hit or miss so far but there are good albums out there.
>>1117 The production is one of the big things keeping me away from modern metal. I'm not that into thrash anymore either. I usually just listen to the first Metallica album and Slayer nowadays. Maybe some of the German stuff too. I like some stuff from the 2000s, but I don't keep up with the genre anymore and rarely stumble across anything I find worth listening to. This one's an exception: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zvHpGArLr4 This is one of the most recent rock records I've heard that I actually like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMWHEgrjuOY I'm not even kidding. The vocals are terrible and there's no bass player, but I really like the guitar tone and some of the riffs and the way it mixes early Venom with early Motley Crue.
>>1131 Gotta appreciate Slayer. There is some good metal with decent production out there. But I get what you're saying. I want to hear some good metal with metalcores production. Just without the pussy metalcore bullshit.
>>1132 I'm an analog snob as far as recording goes, although I'm willing to overlook production I don't like to a certain extent if the actual music's good. I've always liked this album, for example, even with the typewriter double-bass drum sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlDq0izluOQ It's ironically a Christian band.
>>1163 It's alright. Not a big fan of the black metal style. I prefer something with a real decent rythem and headbangable riffs. Like this one. >Carcass: Swansong https://youtu.be/agQRIz3DviY
>>1169 As much as I love "Keep on Rotting in the Free World," I was always more into the Symphonies of Sickness sound. Reek of Putrefaction was my introduction to the band, and I still have a soft spot for that one even though I dislike grindcore (with some exceptions). Maybe I just haven't listened to their later releases enough, but I never really got into them. Michael Amott from Heartwork was behind my favorite melodic death metal album though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVv87n8pWdg I get what you mean about the lack of rhythm in black metal, but I like the sense of romanticism and atmospheric bent that even the non-"atmospheric black metal" bands tend to have.
If I remember right Michael Amott was/is in Arch Enemy and that's the first I heard of his guitar work. >Arch Enemy: Instinct https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8iINrdyFIM
>>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

>>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.

>>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.

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

Hey, I found this album recently and it has been resonating with me a lot. It perfectly encompasses my sense of alienation and purposelessness from being trapped in this digital void where I can only endlessly observe cultural products of bygone eras, but not experience it myself. Where the physical manifestation of everything is missing and it all feels like it doesn't have any meaning anymore. It sounds like walking among a computer graveyard where those computers of old are still endlessly processing. Those sounds often encompass me on nightwalks through empty commercial areas. https://youtube.com/watch?v=YFLhE7VmJuw

>>2929 Listening now, this is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing. If you want more IDM music like this, check Bola's work. He's been making albums very similar to this one since the 90s... My top 3 albums of his are: 1. Kroungrine (2007) 2. Soup (1998) "bowl o' soup" get it? 3. Fyuti (2002) YT playlist links: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_mRrQDfXGH3AC0DSPrAi6L7lriar7MWhhI https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_mmUArlCazNyBCdLwq5fRHcjHGMGV7zM5A https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_kBElnUffadz9UneGehpUrkGJ8BDCQa5DE
>>2930 Hello Anon, sorry for the delay. I just listened to all the albums in a row and wrote down some of my thoughts: Kroungrine - quite multifaceted. It has some melancholic qualities similar to formless and certainly has an overall dark sound to it. Favourite track: "Urenforpuren" Has this repetitive rythm and then this melancholic melody kicks in... Fyuti. First song sounds kinda cosmic. Very futuristic sound. At other times it sounds kinda jazzy. I guess this could be considered very y2kesque Soup. Has some pretty nice repetitive beats and uplifting melodious elements. Favourite track: Forcasa3. Just hopelessly catchy melody and rhythm that is repeated to death, but you never get tired of it. I think overall it's my favourite album of the bunch. Though all of these albums are pretty multifaceted. Just listening to them now this is the overall mood I got from them. In the end they are hard to put into a single category. I'll definetely listen to them again. Thanks a lot for these awesome recommendations. Also quite interesting, reading this biography gridlock founder Mike Wells wrote about his project where he lists all the computers he used and how the albums came to be. Interesting he comes from a metal background, which I also enjoy a lot. Especially 90s death and doom metal stuff. Really sad that he passed away of (((sudden death syndrome))) just recently. I definetely need to listen to his other stuff. For some reason I've only listened to formless till now. I'm always kinda hesitant listening to new stuff and rather listen to the same albums till death. https://web.archive.org/web/20060511111416/http://www.5-25.com/gridlock/retrospective.html
This track is awesome. Is there more melancholic IDM like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GweF0tZdy-A&pp=ygUMdXJlbmZvcnB1cmVu
>>2929 I'm not opposed to electronic music but I listened to the first two and a half tracks and I was surprised at how "rusty" and disharmonious it was; the first track actually startled me with how unpleasant it sounded at times and made me jump in my seat. I've listened to music that was full of odd time signatures and other unusual things, but this was a different league. Is the rest of the album like this or is it more ambient? I never thought of myself as soft, but I just find it hard to listen to stuff like that. What about this album made you enjoy it so much? I'm very curious.

I found this last year but forgot what I named it. Found it again.

>>2936 I guess it's just a simple case of tastes being different. Maybe this type of "disharmony" just doesn't click with you. I personally think it's a very tasteful combination of disassociating noise and melancholic ambient passages. I just came here to post another "IDM" piece that I came across a while ago and which I guess perfectly fits the category of "early 2000s music". There's something bittersweet, almost romantic about those tracks. Unexpected feels I didn't expect electronic music to be able to convey. This may be related to the fact that I listened to this a lot while on a holiday in the north of Sweden, but it evokes strong feelings of nature and lonely, abondoned wooden buildings. Picrel is what you see a lot there. It's a dead country. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_mOaLzZik8fQwLq06J1L7zeRFzcWVef3Dw
Was in the grocery store the other day picking out produce when I heard Crash Test Dummies Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm playing overhead. Such a surreal experience to have a grocery store play that as background music. A lady near the dairy section said to herself something along the lines "This song is horrible." 😆 I didn't mind though. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=eTeg1txDv8w
>>3329 I had thought about that but never gotten to save it. Thanks. >>3437 It probably is just taste, but I've listened to some really broad kinds of music before (although nothing truly experimental). That song was the first time I genuinely felt uncomfortable, as though I were watching someone drag his fingernails down a rusty piece of sheet metal. I'm curious about music with less formal song structure so I'll give the playlist a listen.
"replacement" by Kelly chen - so underrated btw: https://youtu.be/wXhgi8ckwYg
>>3487 Ever read the book Songs in the Key of Z? Outsiders. Real experimental stuff. Problem is that only one I know who did stuff in that period was Jandek, I'd have to get the book out again to find another. Maybe you should dive into the abyss to find them. https://annas-archive.org/md5/3ad0cf772ca8296dd895e27ca2b1f9a1
Warren Zevon's Mr. Bad Example(1991) seems rather overlooked on look backs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0NlXKPaqZg
