Begin Again


Ok so ive been on radio silent for a while. Thanks to Ash and Java (more than anyone) for holding this forum down for everyone!

So of course I have been listening to the KP promos over the last few years that have graced my inbox and although my opinion may of been tarnished from all the twitter bullshit and complete lack of respect that went on I still like to judge music from the perspective of a listener. That and the fact that everyones made friends here and we all appreciated such times together is why this forum still stands.

http://www.youredm.com/2014/09/13/knife-party-begin-first-studio-preview/

So my thoughts on "Begin Again":

Pendulum / RS is the best singular producer imo. I also rate such as hans zimmer and other popular huge producers in different sides of the industry on the same level.

So you can imagine 3/4 years of bullshit thats really made itself from great PR and worked from all the groundwork of Pendulum.

This however is complete quality and not because theres vocals, not because its of a lighter / popular / more mainstream style but because of the production! Maybe KP enjoy making this kind of music more but theres more heart and soul it seems. If this had dropped in May it would smash ibiza 2015. No doubt it will be a huge track anyhow but its got everything for me and great to hear such quality hitting the vibe strings once again.

Influences may of come from old skool house or madeon but whatever, more of the same and the female friendly club crowd will be lapping it up. Guetta will loose his fan club and it will mean yet another new studio and bigger stage shows.

I dont have time to post much on here any more but just wanted to say big ups for the phat tune, say hi to everyone and encourage the rinsing of bandwidth on my server :).

Hi Ollie! One of the few I remember from 3, 4 years ago when I left, nice to see you back. :) This album really have made people come back (including me too).

I didn't understand some parts, maybe I missed something in the past?

"although my opinion may of been tarnished from all the twitter bullshit and complete lack of respect that went on"
"So you can imagine 3/4 years of bullshit thats really made itself from great PR and worked from all the groundwork of Pendulum."

Listening to this track again, and I'll say what I've said a million times. Of all these EDM "artists," only the ones who are actually real musicians make music that's worth a shit. The fact that Rob knows how to make "real" music really comes through in his songwriting and production.

I agree that 'being a real musician helps being an EDM artist' but not necessarily each and every real musician will be a good producer/composer... for example, I think that KJ is an extremely talented drummer but unfortunately I never liked any of the tracks he has made as a producer.
Rob is just... a genius, however trite and commonplace it is to say that

Yes, thanks for clarifying that a bit. I think what I mean is that the really, really good producers started out as proper musicians. They seem to know how a song should flow, etc. Unfortunately it seems that most of these assholes are still just kids with laptops. :(

To be fair, we're just spoiled with Rob being like the greatest of anything ever and ever. Haha.
