  • ShitsofRain do you know any other house mixes that are as good as fabrliclive 60 or even better?
    December 22 02:32 PM
  • Calc hey dev maybe you know about this already but I searched for the band Kodak Cameo and me browser is telling me its an attack page. Pretty sure it's not the only page doing this but just wanted to let you know.
    December 21 03:41 PM
  • Guzzo10 Thanks again. What about the formatting issue that splits up the paragraphs awkwardly after you make an edit?
    December 17 11:55 PM
  • Guzzo10 Maybe I'm retarded, or just slow, but how do you put the video directly into the article? You told me before just use the usual link codes, but I'm assuming you use different codes than the "[a}" Also, how do you stop the paragraphs from getting split after you edit?

  • ComeToDaddy I'd appreciate that a heap, just let me know any time - I should be able to jump on here every day through the holiday season. Best of luck getting it all sorted, it's a busy time of year
    December 17 03:56 AM
  • ComeToDaddy Not sure if it's the right place to ask since I don't know who is heading up the end-of-year user list, but I'd love to contribute a blurb or two to the list. Would you mind pointing me in the right direction?
    December 17 02:54 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yo. any upcoming albums worth checking out/reviewing? - preferably something in the realm of more abstract glitch/techno/whateveryoufeellikereccing(I'm really awful with electronic genre-labelling). only asking because I feel like challenging my writing a bit, and you have your ear to the ground for that sorta thing..
    December 15 07:14 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews Hello sir, would you kindly remove the duplicate Guns, God and Goverment off Marilyn Manson's page? Thank you in advance.
    December 15 11:53 AM
  • Rowan5215 done and dusted
    December 14 03:55 AM
  • Rowan5215 could I upload that Copeland - Ixora review I've been cooking up now? The standard edition is out on iTunes which I'm assuming counts as an official release?
    December 14 02:34 AM
  • LordePots Yeah, but i feel as though they were looking for reasons to give it that low of a rating. The little review certainly didn't read as a '2/5' at least not for sput standards... but i get what they are saying about it being insubstantial 'toothless' whatever, its just that those are weak critiques for what the ep is or set out to do... which certainly wasnt to be this massive substantial game changer. its just a great ep thats it... much better than that latest james blake one jesus

  • Futures dev how is using a personal picture the same as insulting someone? i don't want it on the site and i thought it would be respected.
    December 14 12:42 AM
  • Futures sweet thanks dev!
    December 13 10:58 PM
  • Futures hey dev wondering what time zone the midnight tomorrow deadline is for the users best list? still jamming a few albums.

  • LordePots resident advisor is just hankerin for a residential shoot up. and what are your thoughts on it?
    December 12 11:53 PM
  • Typhoner yeah, with that and the Ena one, Samurai is on fire (and remarkably diverse, too)
    December 12 05:30 AM
  • RonnieRadke ur da cat man[2]
    December 11 08:58 PM
  • Typhoner What's the policy on albums with different versions? Because I saw that someone added a "Binaural (vinyl)" entry on Ena's page, which looks kinda ugly. On the other hand, the vinyl tracklist *is* entirely different than the CD/digital one, but wouldn't it be better to just add both tracklists to the Binaural entry, for example?

    December 8 08:22 PM
  • Willie Ha ha. I have approval ;)
    December 8 09:46 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Oh I'm fine with waiting it out. I just want to know why so I can avoiding doing it again.
    December 8 01:30 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Hmmm In the Meds thread reported ratings that looked like troll ratings, but happened not to be, but Jom seemed fine with it. I mentioned how I disagreed with almost every single one of Voluminous Flush's points in a political thread, and in the spam thread I posted a picture that showed Christians calling video games Satanic because it was funny. No, nothing out of the ordinary for me.
    December 8 01:20 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Why was I banned in the forums? I mean I'll wait out the ban since it's only 2 days, but I'm just curious to why.
    December 7 11:48 PM
  • Omaha THANKS DUDER! i am dismayed that i discovered the new Clark album the day after we submitted our end-of-year lists.
    December 7 09:04 PM
  • CaptainSpacker Not to suck your dick or anything, but lately I've been increasingly getting into electronic music and your reviews and recommendations have pretty much become my main source for discovering music. Just wanted to say thanks and let you know people pay attention to what you say. Anyways, peace.
    December 7 12:49 PM
  • Omaha i am no longer the only staffer who appreciates Pink Lemonade, hm? =]

  • Jacquibim Sweet, your rate of work still eclipses that of the Gold Coast City Council
    December 5 11:28 PM
  • Jacquibim Okay smarty pants when is the estimated date of completion~~
    December 5 11:19 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot gotcha, thx
    December 5 10:03 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey, quick question. with this Jon Brooks album, the album was released physically a while back (probably a fairly limited release) but was just recently released digitally (Dec 3 according to bandcamp). which release date would be the accurate one? I know there was some confusion (on my part) with the Grouper album a while back, so I was wondering in this case what the better option would be..
    December 5 09:53 PM
  • Jacquibim Is there a reason you've mostly rated artists with names beginning in A and B? I wondered this for ages.
    December 5 09:49 AM
  • BMDrummer never noticed that 1 for merriweather post pavilion damn

    December 2 09:43 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Dat new avatar omg
    December 2 09:04 PM
  • Rowan5215 Appreciated, I'll hold my horses till then
    December 2 08:25 AM
  • LordePots i will say there were a few tracks like There's a Distance In You in the second half that I liked a lot but I thought the first half was so bad that it couldn't make up for it. oh well, I'll listen again and see.
    December 2 06:41 AM
  • Rowan5215 It's hard to say. I think the band regards it as having been officially released on November 14th, which was when the digital versions arrived, but the album release is just set for sometime in the middle of December.
    December 2 06:22 AM
  • Rowan5215 Hey yo Dev just wanted to know if by the site's rules Ixora by Copeland is counted as having been released or not? It hasn't been released on CD yet because of delays but the band sent a pre-order download to the people who'd already ordered it, so if I reviewed it, would it be eligible for a feature now or would I have to wait until the CD release happens?
    December 2 05:48 AM
  • LordePots guess ill have to go listen to it again and see if i was missing something
    December 2 02:03 AM
  • LordePots "Clark Clark 4.3 superb" wow... i mean ive been surprised by you before but holy s*** this takes the cake i did not see that coming at all
    December 2 02:03 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thought so. Just making sure. Cheers!
    December 1 09:21 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yo Dev, would "Worlds Apart" by Seven Lions count as an EP or an LP?
    December 1 09:17 PM
  • Hyperion1001 well that m. geddes gengras i think has a lot of replay value actually but i also bought it so maybe that influences that a little bit.
    December 1 08:26 PM
  • Hyperion1001 tbh i dont feel too differently. strays is my soty of the year but i wouldnt say i "love" the album. my year end list was basically a piss take of albums i kind of liked from this year. last year had at least 5 releases i still listen to regularly to this day, this year really has nothing other than a few tracks from flatland i think ill go back to after december honestly. it kind of sucks but oh well.
    December 1 08:24 PM
  • ShitsofRain i got it now^^
    December 1 12:41 PM
  • Hyperion1001 so didnt actually like flatland that much i take it?
    December 1 09:46 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot this Snowday album is great, dunno if you've heard it yet
    November 28 05:54 PM
  • psandy No problem, totally forgot about that! Thanks anyways
    November 28 02:27 PM
  • Brostep yo, trying to catch up on the DnB I missed in 2014. made a list here, anything I'm missing? (note: the numbers denote order in which I intend to listen) https://docs.google.com/document/d/175pH6UAZxajizI-LxB1baGoLlpA5XBD1JepASqnsjzQ/edit?usp=sharing
    November 28 09:49 AM
  • psandy Hey Deviant. I'd like my review to be featured ( http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/65186/Various-Cruelties-Various-Cruelties/ ) if you see fit, and if you believe it's well written enough. Great record, seems as if no one has heard of them here. If it's not a possibility it's all good. Thanks!
    November 28 12:58 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yo. just a... *friendly reminder* http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/65103/Warren-of-Ohms-The-Wolf-and-The-Fox/you said you'd feature this bad boy and I was wondering if there was still room. thx for considering either way
    November 26 05:45 PM
  • ShitsofRain *friendly reminder*
    November 26 08:44 AM
  • SadAndHolyGlow Yikes. Sorry. The name of the band is: Hetfield (and) Hetfield. There are currently four placeholders for them, I believe. I just wish they could be merged.
    November 26 12:26 AM
  • SadAndHolyGlow Hey, Deviant. So this band has a new album out and I tried adding it to their page but it got added to one of the three other placeholders for them. I think it's because the band name has an ampersand... The band is Hetfield

  • Insurrection Just tried it again- a bunch of words in the bio were frankenstein'd to other words so I did my best to break them up. Hope its better now
    November 24 01:53 PM
  • Intothepit Dev, I'm not a big fan of Lakes or any of his little bulls*** crew, but if you're gonna ban him, you gotta ban Futures. Granted, if anyone else reported lakes bulls***, it would be justified, but Futures has been egging him on for months. Futures is a cheap, watered down version of me, minus the irony. He needs to go, dude. He's as much of a cancer as Lakes is/was.
    November 24 04:28 AM
  • thekilleruser Oh. Sorry.

  • trackbytrackreviews Hello, as suggested in the thread, could you please remove Los Angeles Live from System of a Down's discog? There's very little information about it besides the fact that it's a fan bootleg, sice their first official release was not until the very end of 97 with Demo Tape 3
    November 15 12:04 AM

    November 12 08:52 PM

  • Jash It's been good, quiet as of late i've been focusing on prepping the first full length release and money is tight so it's a slow process but I think it'll be worth the wait, hopefully going to do a limited vinyl run of the single backed with a vinyl only track. I'll post a couple Clearlight and Owl collabs but you should check both their souldcloud's, some next level sampling and sound design
    October 11 03:35 AM
  • Jash The new Artikal compilation is sounding pretty slick, also have you heard much Owl or Clearlight yet?

    October 8 07:33 PM

    October 6 02:29 PM
  • Omaha Hahahaha oh man how did I not realize this before now. Foundational electronic music and airports just go hand-in-hand, I suppose
    October 6 01:50 AM
  • Omaha On a different note tho, been loving the hell out of Aphex. I checked out his Ambient Works release while I was waiting for a flight in the airport, and it was the perfect scene =]
    October 5 09:51 PM
  • Omaha yeah man, i see what you mean. i think i'm just maybe a bit more sour over The Chemical Brothers than others are- I've never even gotten a ton out of Dig Your Own Hole, tho I do love the drums on it. I think I like them the most with their grandiose instrumentals, like Star Guitar (well hey, mostly instrumental at least,) and Escape Velocity.

  • motopitchman Thanks Deviant
    October 5 07:31 PM
  • motopitchman Hi, two users "FadeToBlack" and "Gyromania" have been coming into my lists and harassing me and other commenters, I was wondering if there was anything I could do about this.
    October 5 05:17 PM
  • Omaha So I listened to Chemical Brothers' Push the Button for the first time in awhile and yikesss. Feels like the cheesiest album now, whereas I used to love the hell out of it. Is that 3.9 a recent rating of yours?
    October 3 03:44 PM
  • BMDrummer why was i banned from the forums for a "joke request"? i was actually asking for my list to be featured, just in a somewhat sarcastic manner

  • Guzzo10 Thanks for the heads up on the video coding. One more thing though, how do I embed a soundcloud stream into an article using sputz html?
    September 24 01:36 PM
  • Hyperion1001 its pretty good honestly, but like i said my knowledge isnt exactly extensive. im generally not a fan of the mid-2000's laptop generation IDM other than a select few artists, and there seems to be a lot of that on here, but there are some old gems that im slowly discovering.
    September 24 10:37 AM

    September 22 09:00 PM
  • Hyperion1001 http://www.factmag.com/2014/09/22/the-100-greatest-idm-tracks-100-51/ Thoughts on this? im still an initiate when it comes to a large majority of electronic music if im really honest, and i've heard maybe 5 of the albums/artists on that list so far. i like FACT and im gonna devour most of the stuff on this list.
    September 22 09:55 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Btw, happy birthday, man.
    September 20 10:49 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey Dev, didn't want to post this in the med thread, but is musique concrete considered 'featureable'? if so, I think my Mathias Delplanque is a pretty decent writeup, and it's a pretty under-appreciated genre on here imo. sorry in advance if this isn't something you like to pop up on your SBox
    September 20 07:53 PM
  • ScuroFantasma Happy Birthday Dev :)
    September 20 12:58 AM
  • Green Baron feature pls? http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/64304/Train-Bulletproof-Picasso/
    September 19 10:54 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hahaha, well, for all his pretentious, idiotic bulls***, Snox was right about a couple things. If it makes you feel any better, know that I briefly considered Savant to be the greatest dubstep artist ever for about ten seconds until I found Burial and actually good dub.
    September 19 09:35 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah. Cool. I brought it up because I actually reviewed it a while back. It's pretty nice stuff, although it does feel a little too much like a better version of Devil Sold His Soul.
    September 19 09:24 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges You checked out the new Acres EP? Strange. Didn't really think it would be your type of music.
    September 19 09:02 PM
  • TMobotron Oh my god dude Islands is so ****in good!
    September 18 07:20 PM
  • BigPleb Almost a little TOO coincidental tbh.
    September 18 06:36 AM
  • BigPleb Yeah I guess, album feels more of like a 'fan satisfier' than anything truly groundbreaking.
    September 18 06:31 AM
  • BigPleb I get a lot of Ambient Works vibes but yeah, with regards to anything new in his sound its not really there. Have to agree with that 'Windowlicker' continuation, I am enjoying it so far but I was hoping for something with more depth...
    September 18 06:29 AM
  • BigPleb Its feeling, dare I say it, kinda safe?
    September 18 06:26 AM
  • BigPleb dat new Aphex Twin tho.
    September 18 06:24 AM
  • DecayingMajesty Ah ok, thanks anyway :)
    September 17 05:52 PM
  • LordePots thanks for the thought tho
    September 17 02:05 PM
  • Frippertronics So 'ol Dev, are there any albums you'd recommend if I enjoyed the new Banks LP, the piano-driven tracks in particular?
    September 16 03:17 PM
  • DecayingMajesty It was about the new Chris brown album that had been released yesterday. I had provided a Youtube link to the entirety of the album. I also made sure that i hadn't made any grammatical errors or spelling mistakes, so im unsure as to why it was disallowed. Usually news articles about new albums are usually allowed.
    September 16 11:52 AM
  • DecayingMajesty I noticed that the news article i created was disallowed. Can i ask why this was?
    September 16 02:29 AM
  • Frippertronics that banks LP tho
    September 13 12:57 AM
  • MrElmo reason of ban for TheBarber user account pls? :)

  • FeedingNetherlands ok why my review got D-f-n-E-L-E-T-E-D
    September 6 11:34 AM
  • FeedingNetherlands what the hell, i type GOTD, it ends up as gotd
    September 6 11:33 AM
  • FeedingNetherlands Hello, can you share some light on why my review for xSPONGEXCOREx gotd?
    September 6 11:32 AM
  • Hyperion1001 gotcha, i was just wondering. i spend an inordinate amount of time on that site so i've become quite fond of seeing something like indietronica and trying to figure out what the hell it actually is. my favorite one of late is "outsider house", which i find totally amusing.
    September 4 07:19 AM
  • Athom I've been getting really into both house music and ambient techno as of late. Any recs would be most appreciated with you being the all seeing eye of electronic music.
    September 4 01:43 AM
  • Hyperion1001 so ive always wondered why you hate the RYM genre system so much. i mean, it's pretty much a perfect example of why popular vote democracy is a terrible system for deciding anything, but i kind of like the fact that it just sort of throws a bunch of genres on there, i find it gives me a more accurate summation of what it might sound like as opposed to just what genre its in.
    September 3 02:38 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah. Well, figures, haha. Thanks for the explanation!
    August 31 09:38 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges The anticipation is killing me, Dev. Or do you mean a blank/literally the letter a?
    August 30 09:46 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Cheers. Anything you think needs improvement? Sorry for the naggin
    August 30 09:42 PM
  • Green Baron Dev can I change my contact email address?
    August 30 09:28 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yo Dev, could I get some feedback on my latest? That s***s probably your kinda dig
    August 30 09:25 PM
  • scottpilgrim10 Oh I was using A instead of a. Thanks for the help!
    August 30 02:16 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges That's exactly the problem, though. I link the stream in the first comment using [url][/url], and every time I click on it, it says the page is unavailable. Don't know if there's anyway to fix that, unfortunately.
    August 30 10:24 AM
  • scottpilgrim10 Can you show me how to correctly make a link in a news article? I can't seem to get it right.
    August 29 07:11 PM
  • Slamurai https://vimeo.com/104578164
    August 29 05:56 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yo Dev, I've had some trouble hyperlinking album streams to my reviews for a while. I use [url][/url] and just copy/paste the link in, but it always ends up getting broken. Anyway you could try to figure out why that is? Thanks in advance.
    August 29 03:46 PM
  • porch can i get thisd, i'll probably rewrite and repost in the next couple of days. thanks in advance http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/51568/Urinals-Negative-Capability...-Check-it-Out/
    August 28 07:12 PM
  • Sleaper do you go to many techno gigs? (after going to the berghain ive kinda given up on finding solid sets) well in aus anyway. ur from NZ right? must be hard finding solid gigs there too
    August 28 06:19 AM
  • PunchforPunch what's a Bubblegum Bass??
    August 28 05:28 AM
  • ZilbelPing Awesome! Thanks, I appreciate it since I really had no idea what I was looking for. Again, thank you
    August 26 12:48 PM
  • ZilbelPing Mind rec-ing me stuff similar to Burial? Checked it out cause it's the go to album for whatever genre it is and I'd love stuff similar to it. I have Untrue and Kindred just to give you an idea of what I'm looking for in case some of his other releases sound different to those two.
    August 26 12:30 AM
  • FourthReich thanks again tho dude ill stop bugging you now i know you have some reported posts of mine to review
    August 25 07:07 AM
  • FourthReich awesome this is seriously what i needed. i've always been the type of cat who can only dip his heels into genres until i find "that" artist. electronic has always been that way for me especially dubstep(idk if from a genre standpoint that sentence makes sense but i think you'll get it ha). though noisia and this distance dude sound insane thus far. "dub" is such a common word dropped by people my age today but i really havent taken the time to jam true dubstep (so i can school these mofos ;})
    August 25 07:06 AM
  • FourthReich you are a savior dude that's the type of sh!t i keep waiting to stumble over to get me further into dub, but have never found it or been rec'd it. thanks a million you electro freak. i assume i should check his two lps?
    August 25 06:41 AM
  • FourthReich my god all three of those were dank Noisia especially, thanks again. he's actually quite crafty on his turntable set up(his god father is christopher fuking cross so he has a music in his blood), but he just doesn't have good taste, CLEARLY haha.
    August 25 06:01 AM
  • FourthReich thanks a lot i will, and of course people will like what they like, and especially since he's my dear friend im not trying to offend but good lord wtf is that lmao. i am no connoisseur of any genre of music not even close but the sheer lack of basic musical knowledge i.e. not know who aphex twin is and you claim to be a dj, is perplexing imo
    August 25 05:43 AM
  • FourthReich one of my very best friends is a dj and we only recently started exchanging recs because i dont want our friendship to end lmao. he claims to like mid tempo and dub step in general and links me stuff like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DRc6ajsM-4#t=172. am i wrong for calling stuff like that complete trash, just about everything ive heard with a drop blows chode. any good recs i could give him, he wasn't fond of richard d james...?
