    You walk into your local hifi specialist to dem that fantastic new system you've wanted for ages and the saleperson asks that all important question...

    "What kind of music do you like?"

    The normal response I get to that is

    "anything"

    but the subsequent playing of a few dirges for the youngsters or breakbeats for the older people reveals that they don't, in fact, like "anything". So what would you class your musical tastes as in this situation?

    Sadly, anything.:D
    I will listen to anything that will tell me something about a speaker system if it's for demo purposes, no matter how eclectic. Of course if the salemen puts on one end of the musical spectrum, I'll listen for a bit and then change it for the other end just to make up my mind.

    I never risk the dealers taste and always take my own music with me.

    Some thing by massive attack or portishead. When I went for a demo of my speakers the bloke stuck on protection and I listened to it twice! Would of probably brought any speakers at that time as I love that song!

    Its a tough one. I do have very wide taste in music, so long as its me that gets to choose whats on ;)
    Thats why I never listen to the radio. Probably also why I got into DJing.
    I'd say from clubbing experience that its UK Garage and D&B that i dislike the most intensely. I just don't get anything from it. But if i'm ****** enough I don't really care :zonked:

    Anything but opera or garage really. Decent classical stuff can sound great, blows you away witha good system and a good recording.

    Mainly listen to breakbeat stuff, BT and Hybrid, Jazzy Brum'n'Bass like Kruder and Dorfmeister and Faithless etc.

    Got a bit of Future Sound of London also, bit quirky at times though, except the wonderful Papua New Guinea.

    Where do you work then Gambit?

    Tha Altogether is a killer album, especially Funny Break. Also, in a similar vein, try Echo and Bounce off Propellorheads' Decksandrumsandrickandroll- loads of effects and tricky timing for a system

    Cheers for mentioning the BT album on the other thread. Just listening to Still Life in Motion, Love On Haight Street is great.

    Oh alright then Mr Gambit, since you asked nicely:
    If you demo me some speakers/whatever you must play all three of the Prodigy's studio albums plus the Dirtchamber sessions, and you must play them both loud and quiet. Only then will I contemplate buying your equipment.:smoke:
    :D

    Interesting reply Mr Mudge, as TFOTL is one of the best CD's to dem- it covers most of the Audiable spectrum. The only thing better would be a test CD to see your chosen speaker's frequency response.:smashin:

    Yes, but with those four you can go from Hardcore & Drum'n'Bass on the Experience all the way to what I consider the birth of Nu Metal, going through several musical genres and crossovers in between.

    Buy Korn's first alum and Incubus's S.C.I.E.N.C.E. to witness the birth. Interestingly :)p ), Incubus were the fist band signed to Korn's label.

    Depends on your definition of nu-metal. If you mean the modern incarnation of metal then yes, Korn are right up there as one of the founders.
    If you mean heavy guitar rock, with DJing and MCing plus some synth work, then to my mind the Prodigy were among the first bands to experiment with this stuff.

    Sorry, long time Prodigy nut talking, I'll shut up now.:rolleyes:
