    'Witch house' isn't that bad a name, other than the fact not all of it's witchy and only a small amount house-y. But hey, genres should never be taken seriously. I remember not that long ago when people were distancing themselves from dubstep by saying they made 'funky house' or just 'funky' - listen to that, it is the same as old UK Garage / 2 step, which is what dubstep grew out of... shit like this is cyclical, as far as I'm concerned 'witch house' covers all doom, drone, lo-fi electronics, darkwave, etc etc.... being made now. Just be thankful it isn't all grouped under 'terror banana' (a real genre!!)

    Witch house is a decent genre name actually. Better than Nu-Rave.

    Ghost Dub is better though...

    W - the UK's only Witch House night.

    Tell your friends and family. Invite any bugger you know might be interested.

    Have any of you thought about using the original Planet of the Apes soundtrack for samples? I just watched it again this weekend and it sounded like it would work well.

    Thanks! I'm on it...

    My name's Ben and, on top of being a life-long comic book/pen-and-paper RPG nerd, I'm also a massive music geek. I run a label called Tundra Dubs that's often times thrown in with the term "witch house," which is by no means a problem.

    I'd like to say thanks to Mr. Ellis for posting about a couple of artists I've released (I†† and ?AIMON as far as I know) and would like to invite anyone on this board/in this thread to check out my label's Bandcamp page at: http://tundradub.bandcamp.com

    Please do not dismiss this music as a gimmick, etc. The symbols involved are typically very tongue-in-cheek and not meant to be taken literally. That being said, please check out other labels like Pale Noir, Phantasma Disques, Robot Elephant Records, etc.

    Hooray Tundra! I was at the recent SD show playing a flutophone in the audience :P I somehow missed meeting you in the course of that night.

    ... Other labels like Aural Sects too.

    Hello Ben, und wilkommen. Needless to say I ? TUNDRA DUBS.
  6.  (8571.113)
    Hi Ben! tundra dubs is a rocking label! Keep up the good work!

    Meanwhile, a sign that the WH aesthetic is breaking though to more mainstream records?

    @icelandbob - Wow. First sign of the drumbeat is pretty telling, and then comes that lo-fi bass and the intercut cell shit. Yeah. Our influence is spreading. None are safe. Even if it does sound like a less intense Mater Suspiria Vision release... Although the arp'ed synths are a real nice touch.


    STORY OF ISAAC changed their name to CRIM3S and if I'm not mistaken this is their first track under the new name.

    CRIM3S - Breed

    Moreover, they kill it, as usual. I love this stuff.

    OK, so the netlabel I co-founded have started doing podcasts... partly just for own stuff at the minute, but will eventually expand to more stuff on witch house. At the moment it's pretty much an audio blog for the label though...
