Re: The most intimidating artists

I would def have to say Secede and the entire album Tryshasla. Its not fast and crazy like squarepusher etc. but he creates some the most phenomenal environments through samples and very creative reverb and eq. My favorite album ever.

Re: The most intimidating artists

oh shit why didn't i think of this sooner:

Skinny Puppy.

They are absolutely phenomenal. Especially their older material which really stands the test of time in my opinion: even though you can kinda tell it's dated sounding if you're a musician and you know the characteristics of that older gear they were using at the time, it still sounds amazingly futuristic despite that, easily standing up to any modern albums you might compare them too.

Take a song like VX Gas Attack for instance. Excellent pallet of sounds, incredibly well crafted, great performances from every member of the band, and the subject matter remains relevant even 20 years later. Another example: Worlock. Again, excellent sound choice, amazing song writing, and top notch performances from every member of the band.

And most of all, they're not afraid to reinvent themselves and do unexpected things. The art is important to them, but they're not uptight and don't take themselves too seriously.

Re: The most intimidating artists

This is a really interesting thread. Not to off topic too much but I'm assuming I'm not alone when my first aspirations for electronic music production is to replicate someone else's sound. Is that how some of you started as well? I am just beginning my exploration and that's kind of where I am right now.

I wholeheartedly second the aphex twin and squarepusher suggestions. They have intimidated me since junior high.

Re: The most intimidating artists

For some reason Aphex Twin doesn't really intimidate me... probably because I think I could make noise and write melodies like his if I applied myself... and bought a bunch of fancy plugins and equipment.

you're kidding right? Maybe if your skrillex, but that shit won't fly when you're trying to make music comparable to D. James. If you're lucky, you could make some Britney Spears hit songs, but as far legit electronic goes, it's a far fetched agenda...

Re: The most intimidating artists

It's just a bunch of weird noises.... Distort some pads, add a few sweeps, ambient crap noise in the background, Stutter effects, vocal samples, choppy drums, really deep bass... anyone with the basic knowledge of how to start up a pc can do it.

I just found this forum and it seems like its just what I've been searching for many years.
Fat Kaimo is not a very well known artist but he's definitely one of my biggest influences.

I'm not saying Richard isn't a respectable artist, I just am very confident in myself. and besides it's all syncopation in drums and weird noises. I beleive I could make similar.

KOAN Sound. Mostly intimidated by their Noisia-like basslines and unconventional drum tracks.
