The Overload Subreddit – Left-field and Lo-fi House and Techno
Dave Wesley, October 23rd 2018
I’ve been really getting into Reddit lately as an alternative to the usual suspect social media outlets. One of my favorite subreddits is The Overload, which describes itself as:
“A sub for unconventional club music. Ebm, noise, house, lo-fi music, techno, hardware jams, acid, chicago house, detroit techno Labels like L.I.E.S, Hessle Audio, Raster Noton, Token, Cititrax, Downwards, Ilian Tape, Detund, Crème Organization, Opal Tapes, Clone, Dance Mania, Lobster Theremin, Minimal Wave, Pinkman, The Trilogy Tapes, Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, Murder Capital, Perc Trax, Construct Re-Form, Mathematics, Mannequin, Killekill, Crimes of the Future, brokntoys, Tabernacle Records…”
I created a post which asked for recommendations for artists/labels similar to Huerco S (one of my favorite producers) and received a ton of wonderful responses from the community. I assembled the below Spotify playlist based on those recommendations.
It’s a deep rabbit hole. Bring your miner’s helmet.
