Re: The most intimidating artists

Richard Devine, Aphex Twin, Rhys Fulber´s works, Lustmord.

Richard Devine has got ten times as much gear as all of us together. But he also seems to know how to create sounds on any kind of synth, which speaks lots of his knowledge of synthesis. He is also very creative and not afraid to do stuff that is different.

Aphex Twin may not have all of Native Instrument´s releases, but he already does a lot with the stuff he has. He can also play the piano well and is well...APhex Twin.

Rhys Fulber is very knowledgeable about synths and productions. He is also a great songwriter.

Lustmord knows how to craft great soundscapes without sounding cheesy or annoying

Absolutely. I'm intimidated more by him than anybody. His knowledge of resampling and audio mangling is just ridiculous.

I feel... I would be able to destroy all of these guys one day...

EDIT: It doesn't hurt to be a little egotistical

Yellow Then Blue


Amen break is often overused but it fits so well in this Dunkan Shake remix.
I have seen the composition of this same track in Reason and it just blew my mind.

Maybe less michael jackson and more Quincy Jones. I dont write or sing so i cant really say he himself intimidates me. But the instrumentals to thriller...fucking brilliant.

Actually, it does. It's forward thinking. Knowing you will one day be the best out there makes you work harder to achieve that goal.

It takes more than hard work to achieve the level of skill these guys have, but a little confidence never hurts.

Re: The most intimidating artists

For people saying Boards of Canada: I personally think that nowadays is not so difficult, technically speaking, to replicate their sound...I mean it's pretty basic! Yeah for sure the equipment they use and their personal sensitivity give to their track that unique BoC-trademark feel, but c'mon most of the time it's just a simple beat repeated for the whole song!
ps. I actually like 'em don't misunderstand!

Sounds like 11/8.

At least, that is, the hi-hat is struck 11 times in each repetition.

Awesome tune, reppin'
