Energetic producers?

Hey guys. I've taken to watching a lot more live sets of EDM producers/DJs on Youtube, but the one thing I notice is that not a lot of the ones I find seem very...lively and energetic. They might bob their head a bit and rock a little, but not a whole lot. Do you guys know of any artists that go really hard during their set? Doesn't matter if they're well known or not. The only ones I've found that seem to get really into things is Funtcase and Mark Instinct. I find those guys to be much more entertaining. It's also how I'd like to be if I ever get to the point of live mixing, and it might help seeing how you can pump up a crowd (:

Well, obviously, the music and mixing is going to be the main thing that people SHOULD focus on, but I also think that since EDM is the genre that it is, it's not something that you can just stand still to, even if you're the one pumping out the tracks. It's not important, but it's fun to see that an artist just seems to lose himself in the set. The energy isn't mandatory to have a good set, but it just seems like it'd boost the crowd up even further.

You kidding me? I grew up going to rock shows and jumping into pits. If I go to see a DJ he better do something worth seeing or I'm out. If the entertainer isn't having a fun time, how the fuck is everyone else supposed to? I WANT to see pretentious ass fuck wads. I can listen to a million mixes, they're free online all the time. No point in going to see something if there's nothing worth seeing.

I remember when I saw Converge. They kept yelling at the people to "TURN ON THE FUCKING HOUSE LIGHTS. WERE NOT STARTING UNTIL WE CAN SEE YOUR FACES!!!" They were hard as fuck. The stage was about a foot tall and people kept running onto the stage to do flips into the audience. I kicked a kid and his shoe came off. I talked to him after the show. He never found his shoe :c

I've seen Reel Big Fish maybe five times. They're always a really fun show. Always entertaining/comedic. My favorite show was explosions in the sky. I didn't even know them when I went to see them but the tickets were free. Apparently my old college friend is their biggest fan. He can get free explosions tickets anytime. At one point the guy was dragging his guitar around the stage but it still had such an awesome sound and texture to it all. Clean as fuck.

The Mars Volta are exactly what you would expect them to be. The Pixies were kind of boring until they played that one song I know. Fall Of Troy was neato. Circa Survive twas good too.

What I'm getting at is that I can't remember a single DJ set I've been to. They're usually pretty boring. If I'm paying ten bucks for drinks or five bucks to get into your set AND ten bucks for drinks: DANCE MOTHER FUCKER. DANCE LIKE YOUR ON FIRE BECAUSE YOUR EQUIPMENT ISNT. I WANT TO SEE SOMETHING!!

energy energy energy.

i think this applies to most of us. But you don't need musical jargon to help artists, you just need to write what you think about the track and how you think it could be improved, from your point of view, and as an artist yourself as well.
Talking about it, it's been a while since my last review. Gonna review something now.. or maybe tomorrow lolol

Why is everyone so butthurt over the voting system?
"one of my tracks got a 2. THE VOTE SYSTEM IS FLAWED!!!!11!!!!1oneone!!!!!exclamationpoint!!!!"

P.S. If you're legitimately getting 0-bombed (say...somewhere between 5++ votes and a score lower than 2), then ignore this.

haha, classic. I love Squarepusher/ have seen that vid a hundred times. I'm not as impressed actually. On that note, where are the mods? Isn't this forum supposed to not be about music appreciation?

I'm looking into audio programming and I want to start a new project along the lines of a vst effect/generator.

Since the industry seems to be saturated so much with the same exact synths/effects, I was wondering what you guys think still needs to be made.

I haven't looked into DSP yet or anything, so it can't be anything too complex, but I was thinking of making an effect vst that lets you write an equation to affect the incoming audio using sample value, sample rate, bit depth, etc as variables. I haven't seen anything like this yet and considering every plugin made thus far forces you to stick to its own algorithm, I thought this would be a good idea. Hopefully it's possible, but I've yet to really learn how this stuff works.

Any other ideas?

Well since were farting in the wind of revolution...

I'd personally like a synth that rather than adhering to one type of synthesis and multple oscillators, has 3 possible units for each osc/sound source/wavetable: A basic subtractive synth unit with tons of cool unique oscillator shapes, an additive unit with very extensive harmonic control, and a granular unit with good resampling ability. Then, add a matrix and allow FM between any of the 3 (or maybe 6, two of each?) units.

Such a synth would also benefit from some cool little effects like dist, or vintage modelled compressors, etc....and make sure that just about everything is super easy to modulate/route.

Make it a low CPU demanding plugin and youll probably end up with a plug-in more useful then any other single synth I know.

I'd like to know what the fuck you couldnt do with a synth like that. That shit would turn chron straight.

wasnt aware synthmaster had a decent granular resynthesis,

might check it out
