    Default That Underground Sound

    This post are for those who got into the scene in the 90's to early 2000's. When I got into DJing originally I was drawn to that underground sound, club music didn't do anything for me. Now that raves are dead for the most part, I am finding that all the music I am hearing now is just the same stuff over and over again. The level of genrefication used to be ridiculous but at least there was a wide range to choose from. Now everything just sounds like the same safe sound over and over again. I'm looking for 2 things. The first is for anyone who can point me to some music that would be the true underground now a says. House, hip-house, tech-house, hardcore, happy hardcore, techno, IDM, DnB, etc. I don't care really as long as it's not what you are going to hear in every club you visit. The second thing I'm looking for is for you guys to post your favorite underground songs from back in the day.

    Maybe not the most underground tracks but I hope it is enough to get us started.

    Man it's like you have heard <insert popular song of the week> before. LOL. Seriously I could handle it a little better if even the vocals or vocal samples had some sort of thought, intent, meaning; but they lack even that.

    Great pick with Juno Reactor

    I forgot the song that got me traveling down this rabbit hole I call dance music.


    And just for good measure, for those of you who may not know My Life with the thrill kill cult.

    Interesting enough I went to San Pedro High School in Southern Cali with "Poogie Bear" we both DJ'ed at the same parties.

    Here are my sounds from 1999 - 2005


    As far as Poogie Bear he is still making tracks. I am suppose to go visit him soon at our home town. Here is his Sound cloud if you want to listen to more of his stuff.



    If you want to contact him hit him up at http://www.facebook.com/djpoogie His name is Victor BTW =)

    I love hobo and his minimal/techno/electronica sound he really is the definition of underground to me.

    I don't have an old school underground track since i'm only 15 and have only gotten into techno in the last few years.

    I feel like the Internet killed the "underground" by creating an easy and cheap distribution system. The consequence has been an explosion of content and a subsequent ultra-fragmentation of genres (and not just in music). But at least we can now all hear what each other is saying.
