White Noise: November Dance Roundup

Wednesday, 7 December 2011

November Dance Roundup

2011 is shaping up to be an absolutely brilliant year for dance music, especially the stuff coming out of the UK at the moment. It’s a year where no genre has been ubiquitous; dubstep’s star is falling fast while genres like footwork, bass and garage are going in new and interesting directions. Without further ado, here are my favourite dance tunes of the month, along with a choice few I missed from earlier in the year. 

Need U Back - Andre Crom & Martin Dawson
It Goes On (Vox) - Storm Queen
Real Talk - Randomer
The Master Blaster – MikeQ
Untitled – Gerry Read
Red Mask – GoldFFinch
Stalker Ha – Kingdom
Heartbruk – Dubbel Dutch 
Yellobone – Salva
Swims – Boddika & Joy O
Boogaloo – Horsepower Productions
Hold Your Corner – Swing Ting
Up and Down – Funk Butcher
Off The Traxx – New York Transit Authority
Left Unsaid – Pariah
Faceless – Actress
ARP3 – Floating Points
In My Arms – Mano Le Tough
Ruff Lovin’ – Coki

Better late than never - Here are some tunes from earlier this year well worth a listen if you haven't heard them

Far Nearer – Jamie xx
Looking to the Sky (DjRUM Remix) – The Drop
City Life (Maceo Plex Remix) – DJ. T feat. Cari Goden
Let’s Go – FCL
Don’t You - George Fitzgerald
Break Broke – T. Williams 

Dubbel Dutch and the original mix of the Andre Crom not on Youtube but included on the download.

I love your blog and I think your reviews are really great (whether I agree with them or not). But I'm curious like what is the difference between techno and house?

Thanks a lot for the comment man, and you're asking a good question. It's not the easiest to answer, though, because at least in my experience, that difference is something you feel naturally. Techno tends to have a colder atmosphere to House's warmth, and while both tend to rely on a steady 4/4 beat, in Techno it is steady and unrelenting whereas House allows for flexibility.

Perhaps the biggest difference is the way songs change; House music builds fairly quickly into a drop, then has a breakdown before returning to a drop. Techno builds up much more slowly, adding layers of sound patiently to build tension often over much longer periods of time.

Also as a general guideline, Techno tends to sound more mechanical and synthetic, while House is normally more organic and man-made.

Sorry if it's difficult to understand, but it's just something you learn through listening really.
