IDM – Intelligent Dance Music

IDM – Intelligent Dance Music Experimental direction in electronic music. Its founder is the English musician Richard D. James, known as Aphex Twin. He easily turned his back on industrial synthesizers, and with the help of electronic devices of his own manufacture was able to get a new sound in electronic music. Its sound of ragged percussion, modulated noises, high-frequency whistles and overloaded sounds inspired a large number of followers. And this music became at the same time very noticeable and invisible to the masses, while it manages to balance on the verge of pop music and avant-garde. Every year, convening more and more listeners under their banners, those for whom dance music is not quite close, and for whom academic electronics is far from.

Suffixes in song titles

These suffixes are one of the additional ways to determine the attractiveness of a particular release, even if this is the first time you see the name of a track or the name of a producer. The fact is that music is encoded and laid out on the Internet by different people. These people unite in teams, take for themselves some original name and supply all their mp3 releases with an abbreviation of the name of their team. This approach has a huge plus: each team, as a rule, is formed of people who are interested in music of the same style or even direction. Therefore, knowing, for example, that the dh team only uploads a deep house, whenever you want a deep house, you simply download a couple of releases with the suffix ‘-dh’ and enjoy your favorite music.

Today there are more than 400 different teams: there are large enough ones that release 300-500 releases per month, there are rare and well-aimed releases that spread only 10-20, but what releases! For your convenience, Continue reading

What is celtic music

Surely you have read, heard and, perhaps, even used this phrase yourself in different combinations – “Celtic music”, “Celtic music” and even “traditional Celtic music”, “folk Celtic music”, “funny Celtic dances”, “Ancient Celtic chants”, etc. etc. The phrase itself is very, very popular, but what kind of music is actually hidden behind it, no one can really explain. “Celtic music” can be fully electronic ambient with tracks like “Sacred Stonehenge and eighteen druids in a circle”, Latin American with electronic bagpipes, aggressive punk rock, violins, pipes and harmonica of funny drunk Irish men. Can you imagine how much everything fits into one definition? And after all, this is far from everything, you can fit anything Continue reading
