well its that time of year again when i start planning the best and hottest anime convention parties in the country. The SoapBubble and The UnderGround Groove. Next year i hope to bring everyone the same quality DJ's that Chicago, LA, the UK, and Japan have to offer. i've got a lot of DJ's in my mind that i want to come spin along with our cast of resident DJ's.

so lets get things started start talking about this past years party what you liked, what you disliked, and everything in between. if you have any possible DJ request i'd be more then willing to listen to them. if your a DJ and think you got what it takes to come spin for the amazing crowd that comes to ACEN then i will be putting up info on how you can audition for a possible slot that we may have.

i hope to hear from all of you very soon.

This would be amazing but probably never happen...Basshunter anyone!?
Yeah I can't think realistically.

Hows about we have an 8-bit game music underground groove!? I heard about a club in New York that mixed 8-bit music and game bits into dance/trance/techno. Oh my god that would be amazing.

My barren plan to be a better man
Rots in abandoned fields
These idle hands inherit spoiled lands
As the hungry become the pigs
We reap (and) we sow
We mourn who we were

I would really hate to see the same DJs again this year.. I would like to see some different DJs/producers get some exposure!

My suggestion is:

Yasutaka Nakata (中田 ヤスタカ)

I saw him spin at Club Asia in Shibuya not too long ago and it was great. There was even a special guest appearance by Meg :D It would be awesome if they performed at Acen.
Do you believe in something beautiful? Then get up and be it.

Yasutaka Nakata is the MAN! I've never heard of him even doing any shows in the USA, but I love his stuff. I love playing anything he's produced or remixed!

My DJ recommendations would be (no order):
1. Shinichi Osawa http://www.youtube.c...h?v=v3RVxyapKGM
2. Yoji Biomehanika http://www.youtube.c...h?v=YfIPt5Ai5P0
3. Young Punx (did some remixes for Ayu, and Asian Kung-fu generation) http://www.youtube.c...h?v=-NzFeTC22UQ
4. Ōnishi Terukado (Kinda like Nakata, but more underground and produces for Aira Mitsuki, and Saori@destiny) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRDCnB45VxQ...feature=related
5. Daishi Dance (great house, and progressive house with lots of piano) http://www.youtube.c...h?v=Aq1BHM--BIE
6. Alikstae ( http://www.youtube.com/alikstae )
7. DJ AMAYA VS. GROOVEBOT ( http://www.youtube.com/djamayaofficial )

JDM chicago isn't behind this. this is kind of a JDM chicago meet.

this event is something i've always wanted to do with the ACEN DJ's outside of ACEN. its more of an intimate atmosphere in a smaller venue.

Sorry to go OT on this.... I gotta ask... since I can't make it for this one.... Will there be another JDM Chicago meet like this?

I dabble in D&B, though these days I'm more experimental. ACEN politics means the Drum & Bass is minimized to a single DJ, if not pushed out altogether.

Former resident DJ Namel0c produces and spins Dubstep.
ACEN politics means the Dubstep gets pushed out.

Well, that's (a significant) part of it. In addition, since there are so many DJ's guaranteed resident spots, and possibly a preference for DJ's who have played more conventions around the country (vs. U.S. club or rave DJ's), and most of the kids being into the more dancy, simpler EDM (trance, techno, breaks [as Dubstep/D&B fans of the use are typically niche fans]), I'd guess that a Dubstep or Drum&Bass fix is highly unlikely. Even further, to shift the blame our way a bit, I know that neither of us have "applied" this year, as a result of how things have gone in the past couple years.

I guess I'd say, you can't expect anything something different from the sorts of music genres ACEN has been employing, when it's what the kids what. Since there aren't an infinite amount of hours and UG/SB don't go on all weekend, someone (or some genres) have to get the shaft. That's much of why requests like these go unrequited, and why I've seen posts like yours (Alkaren Hyralt) year after year.

Further, many more of the remixers of anime tend to be of those aforementioned genres (when was the last time anyone heard a Dubstep anime remix? Exactly). Makes it a bit more appropriate to have what they have. Meh. Just a utilitarian approach to SB/UG, I suppose.

I think music with drums and bass are good too. Something with a big beat and fun to dance too. Maybe get Hadouken! they're from the UK. They're awweeesssooommmeeee!

Might I mention I have a really badass DrumNBass mashup of Inner Universe. >=D (This is actually a track from a new demo I cut here recently, no post-editing on the mix)

Dubstep... hmm.. I bet I could crank out a dub anime mash. Assuming I can pick up my monitors from my crew this evening.. I'll see what I can do.
