This time on 14tracks:

“14 Tracks: No Hat, No boots = No Job.”

Thanks in no small part to the machinations of Ancient Methods, Industrial Techno has witnessed a resurgence from the shadows of loop-based bangers in recent years, albeit with an updated swagger and shark-eyed intent. With a wealth of experience from countless sets at Tresor and an unflinching taste for tough Industrial swing, DJ/Producers Trias and Baeks aka Ancient Methods forged a subtly syncretic form of Industrial War Funk crossing bellicose, off-kilter Tribal rhythms and excoriating Tech-noise. This sound finds uncompromising allies in the likes of Regis' Ugandan Speed Trials records, the buckin' swing of Realmz, Sawf's concrete funk, or the brutalist architecture of Kangding Ray and Surgeon. This selection covers all those and more, with a steely focus on visceral, physical constructions hinging on five crucial cuts from the masters of this sound. A little word of warning - this 14 tracks selection is perhaps not recommended to those with cardiac dysrhythmia or sh*t speakers! Everyone else, come test!

Take part! Leave a comment!

“thanks..”

nice mix. missing in action - British Murder Boys, Kalon and Ugandan Methods...

On 23 Jun 10:06 said:

Regis and Surgeon aka BMB both appear, as do Ugandan Methods, and Kalon is also a Regis project.

On 24 Jun 04:00 Daniel Miller said:

“You guys . . . ”

. . . should've added some Ancient Methods. That would've really tied this mix together.

This collection sounds awesome and I'd really like to buy it, but here are still no lossless files (FLAC/WAV), so it still isn't an option for me as I don't even listen to mp3s when I can get them for free.
After years of demands for FLAC in the feedback section, why has this still not been realised? Are their legal problems like missing licenses from record labels? It would be nice to have an official statement.
Anyway, limited download bandwidth isn't an issue anymore. There is no rational reason to offer lossy quality in 2011.

“Flac part 83”

I would even consider to upgrade my old 14 Tracks to Flac for an additional fee.

Just another argument that would strengthen the Flac business case I would think

“Flac moan moan moan”

I bet you are so much fun at a gig. 'According to my meter reading calculation he's not using FLAC! So I'm going to leave early, change into my pyjamas and drink a nice cup of Ovaltine before bed I think dear.' My God, who gives a shit - I used to bounce off the walls listening to tapes! And what do you mean you can get MP3s for free? You care about sound quality but not paying the artist for their hard work?

On 20 Jul 11:56 Marco Meffert said:

@Jim: Sorry for being confusing here. I didn't mean that I download mp3s for free illegaly. I would never do that as it is really important for me that artists get paid for their work. What I meant is that in my opinion mp3s aren't worth listening because they are lossy and don't offer the original quality. So even if I got them for free I wouldn't want to listen to them. I'd rather pay for lossless music.
Your comparison about listening to old tapes doesn't work here, in my opinion. Tapes don't have the ear fatuiging effect of mp3s. Tapes can sound great and I do enjoy them, too.

I don't understand why you criticise the demand for lossless music. It only means that the music is really important for us.
