Spinsah said:Microhouse is a long established subgenre, and it's really different from most other 'house' so, I think it's useful.
But it's still for NEEEERRRRDS!
Mr_Furious said:What about classifying producers? How would you classify someone how produces music all across the board, like say, Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim for example?
zoo said:mr furious is just furious that he's no longer "with it"
it's so confusing these days eh, with all these new types of music? maybe you should stick to what you know, leave the new stuff for the young, cool people
IshkursGuideToRaveMusic said:Tech House artists decided to expand their sound into ever more monotonous soundscapes when they decided to create Microhouse: A minimal version of itself not unlike Minimal Techno......only housey. It actually floundered for a few years, narrowly escaping a bitter lawsuit with a software company from Seattle, but lately it's been getting a lot of interesting press more or less because the Glitch guys (like Akufen and Matthew Dear) stumbled upon it and began applying it's sparse aesthete to their clicks and cuts. It now doesn't sound half-bad. When it's sounding like anything at all. Why is it called Microhouse? Because it really IS Micro! The kickdrums, the snares, the hi-hats all sound really compacted and tiny-like, unlike the big booming bassdrums of its brethren genres.
