    Default Stuff that sounds like

    Hey guys.

    So I just recorded a submission to AntiFM Radio to be a regular DJ there. I'm kind of getting sick of the scene I'm in and I want to try my hand at something new for a little bit.

    I know that this website caters much more to popular dance music than what I am used to, but I want to force feed people things that I like along with the more accessible music. So what does that mean? It means I need more music (yay spending money!)

    So, here's where I want to start. Here are a list of bands that I really think anyone could get into, but I need stuff like it. Please point me in the right direction.

    [X]-RX
    Memmaker
    This Morn Omina
    Radioactive Sandwich
    Audio Organism

    I think that's a good place to start. I'll put up the mix that I recorded when I get access to my personal e-mail.

    Thanks ahead of time!

    Most of the times I try to look at what last.fm points me too, or what beatport also recommends.

    Yeah, but Beatport doesn't have this stuff so I can't get reference from it. I haven't tried Last.FM, but I've had bad luck as far as linking underground electronica with more accessible shit.

    Well, I tend to try the "buyer's who bought this also bought" links frequently on Beatport.

    And last.fm has big "sounds like" libraries.

    (Doesn't work on all music genres tho'. )

    yeah. My issue with Last.FM is when I do "Sounds Like" I get a whole slew of bands I know cause they are all in the same scene. I'm trying to find the linked stuff that branches into hard house/tech house or whatever the fuckin genre is called (cause I have no idea). I haven't tried Beatport yet, but I don't know if it'll have this stuff.

    Yeah, that's the plan right now. I wasn't sure about Beatport, but I've been poking around at work and found a few things. I'll see what I can dig up and put together.

    Pandora is usually really good for seeing these kinds of associations.

    I heared some guys talking about Pandora... completely forgot about that one.

    But if you want to look into techhouse, I might be able to help out a little bit.
