Pastrami is far and away the most underrated lunch meat.  It's all turkey this and ham that.....Pastrami is the true king of the deli counter.

Any kind of vocal/instrument-based music in a skate video is cliche

Please list examples of music that are not vocal/instrument-based. Keep in mind that samplers, synthesizers, and drum machines are instruments. I'm at work and need some less cliche music to listen to
[close]
Nice try. You know quite well that I meant instrument-based, as in instrumental - made and based around sounds produced by and performed on traditional physical instruments. Youíre not accounting for digital processing and digital instruments also, or found sound/sound-collage related stuff. I guess I also missed that itís about a conventional use of an instrument. I wouldnít be mad to hear some Sunn O))) in a skate edit to be honest.
Now all of this being said, any Autechre post-2006 would probably do the job for you, as itís mainly programming-based. Wouldnít be mad to hear Autechre in a skate edit either.
But yeah, you know what I mean. Laptop music. Electronic music. Thereís tons of shit out there thatís very off-kilter and fairly accessible and pleasing at the same time. Iím tired of hearing Cocteau Twins time and again in skate videos. I like their music, but enough is enough. I wanna hear an old Hessle Audio single or some Photek in a skate edit. That would be simple enough and cool at the same time.

Etnies videos are sick if you just want pure skating no bullshit. I think doogie is the only guy whoís part has any sort of vocals and even then thereís not much and itís a way more instrumental heavy song. Aidan Campbell also shows up Sheckler in this video on that massive hubba he destroyed both of his ankles on for ETN a few years ago.

Yeah, I thought you were gonna mention Album and rewatched it after I saw the reply. The soundtrack is pretty interesting, and I like how it works with the video, but itís still very guitar-centric if you know what I mean. One of these parts could work with a Jon Hopkins track I think.

Yes! Agreed. It would probably have to be some far out skating as well though. Would be perfect for a short 2-minute part.

Transgenderism is a mental illness.

the thread is unpopular opinions not bigoted opinions. you're straight up transphobic homie. saying someones sexual identity is a mental illness is a lot different than not supporting the corrupt ass Israeli gov.

So its bigoted to not support racially targeted genocide attempts by the Israeli goverment? but your not being transphobic by disregarding the trans experience?
