Nice to see where many of you are coming from and what better way to get some perspective than by sharing some of the music that inspires us..
I'm 25 from Rhode Island by way of tucson, az. most of my favorite artists of late now fall in the underground house/techno and ambient realm. Here's some of them in no particular order and with some of my all time favorites thrown in:
Eno/ fripp/ budd , Tim hecker, terekke, huerco s, mood hut dudes, panda bear, acido / sued records, perfume advert, florian kupfer, Vincent floyd, ron trent, classic man, Omar s., laurel halo, traumprinz, dj screw, GAS, burial, d. Tiffany, d'Angelo, sun kil moon, patsy cline, Billie holiday., dj sprinkles, teklife crew, sotofett, efdemin, grouper, fka twigs, Fever Ray, logos, madteo, the Manuel gottchisng record "inventions for guitar", can / neu!. a real sucker for deep murky textures, dubby drums and pads, all that. Been getting into some echospace, deepchord, mosaic/blue train stuff that really hits the spot.
Any what.cd folks on here?
Edit: thought maybe I should mention I'm an octatrack (w/ blofeld, alpha Juno, and mfb 522) user who hopes to add an a4 this week! Cheers
