(I had to use about 0,5% of my volume to listen through that) When I worked in a factory and used to commute with one smoker guy, he had such music on car speakers and I had earplugs.

I'd like you to check this one. It's a very special piece of music. It has 20 minutes, but it's really worth it. I know it starts all relaxing and quiet, but I had some people (hardcore techno listeners) say this is the most psychedelic thing they ever heard. The style is probably indescribable, but I think it's closest to Drum and Bass when it really gets going. It's about a couple guys from UK who were in India, observed a solar eclipse there and then went to the studio to re-create the experience in sound. Click Play and close your eyes.



Take a deep breath. Open your eyes. What do you think now?

Ah, I get what you are saying now. You are complaining about the drum pattern for standard drum n bass.

Pattern1:Kick---snare------kick--snare
Pattern2:hat-hat-hat-hat-hat-hat-hat
Pattern3:hat-hat-hat-hathathat-hat-hat
Pattern4:ride---ride---ride---ride---ride

It is the structure of not only drum n bass, but of all breakbeat music. It seems to me that you'd enjoy the subgenere of drum n bass, Neurofunk.

Say hello to Xilent.





Shpongle has a similar drum style of John Powell, and if you don't know what that is like, you might want to listen to this.





Despite it being called "drum n bass", I'd hardly call it that.

You're 100% right here. Compared to this I'd prefer even the simple 4/4 beat of (Goa/psy)trance.

This sounds nice, once I got used to it. Got any more where it came from? Xilent seems to have only EPs, not full albums.

This neurofunk reminds me of one Canadian artist's compositions, before he changed his painting style and pulled the music off the website. His music was based around an avantgarde electronic collage of sound. His crazier albums were similar to neurofunk, only slower.
Too bad I can't upload the music, he knows me Smile

I don't care much for suspense movie soundtracks, but you're right, the drums are similar. Too bad Shpongle made just one track like this.

If you claim there are nuances to principles, there are no nuances to getting arrested or shot for disobeying the power.

I am in slight agreement with you here, though I find that if a repetitive drum beat bogs the entire track down, perhaps electronic music is not for you.

Xilent is an interesting producer, mainly because he is not confined to one specific genre. He identifies himself with Drum n Bass artists, but makes some pretty tight and unique dubstep as well. Chord progressions are this guy's thing.





His most recent EP for AudioPornRecords, Choose Me, is by far his most interesting release. Though his Skyward extended play was pretty amazing.

Neurofunk is associated with a reese-style bass being put through a modulator, normally for the cuttoff. I personally use the VST synth, 3xosc, for quick a reese. I then ram it through a distorter, overdrive, and bit crusher. Then I put it into the philter modulator, allowing me to make interesting and unconfined basslines.

I am often disappointed when I come across a new artist. They make one genre different from all their other tunes, and they are so good at making that one unique sound. For instance, the Jazz/Easy Listening/Funk tune, Time is the Enemy by Quantic, is brilliant. But, in my opinion, the rest of his music is not as good.
