Breakcore to me it has always been a genre that pushed rhythmic boundaries with odd time signatures,
syncopation, and polyrhythyms. Growing from the jungle and d'n'b scene when musicians such as
Aphex twin, squarepusher, Atari Teenage riot, Venetian snares, of whom along with many others began
to experiment with the many ways one could fuck up a drum break; relying less and less on repetition
to be the defining element of a song's structure.
So, hopefully you'll find these examples as definitive and inspiring as I have
-all members can submit a maximum of two full tracks but it has already been decided that we are picking one track per person.
Two tracks are not necessary but may increase your chances of getting picked.
-min/max: 2-5 minutes. No Leeway!
-collabs/remixes are permitted but as long as they are of another member’s and with their permission
What are the first and third songs in that Youtube list? They don't show up.
i copied and pasted the message and the links kinda fucked up but, they are fixed now. sorry about that!
anyways, a lot of the examples shown aren't my cup of tea but i am down to do something like the first song which is a lot more like drum n bass. well i guess maybe it's all drum n bass, but crazy? i dunno... either way i might try this out but who knows.
hey brain fucked how do you feel about the more nu-jazzy, melodic kind of breakcore? maybe that's just called breakbeat because it's not core enough, I dunno. Referring to peeps like 4Hero, marcus intalex. please excuse me if I'm saying something useless atm
about the art:
I've always though about breakcore as being very geometric - like kaleidoscopes and shit - although shock-horror type arty cartoons like my so called life are really cool also. Maybe we can get one of the arty idmfers to draw a gory cartoon? ghyt? mindsweeper?
