what do you hear in a song or album that makes you fucking COOM

I like chopped vocals such as in "Way It Goes" by Hippo Campus, or "Feeling Better" by Michal Menert

I also like when songs bleed into each other on an album such as on Adventure by Madeon (e.g. Isometric -> You're On, or Beings -> Imperium ) or on Even If It Isn't Right by Michal Menert (e.g. Hi -> The Same Disease -> Cassiopeia, or New Beginning -> Winter's End, but tbh the whole album does this)

ok i showed u my dick pls respond

I always find it really impressive when sound engineers manage to pull off thick layers of distorted guitars and make it still sound clean and defined. Any of the songs off Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream are an excellent example of this. Lately I've been listening to lots of Deafheaven and they are fantastic at this too.

I love it when there are big, sudden jumps in dynamic range when a song shifts from verse to chorus. Weezer - Say It Ain't So and Nirvana - Heart Shaped Box are the first examples that come to mind. Such a simple and common technique, but when done right it can still give me goosebumps.

Microtonality in vocals. Almost all vocalists use microtonality to some degree, but I love it when they make it really obvious. Maynard does this to perfection in his stuff with Tool. The chorus on Eulogy still sends shivers down my spine every single time, though he flaunts this to perfection on all of Ænima.

Not sure what you'd call it (soundscape maybe?), but Dean Blunt's "The Narcissist II" album does it really well, lots of sirens, firework sounds, weird clashing synths, and other odd sound effects that just really set a scene for me. The track "Direct Line 2" is a good example, but pretty much the whole album does it.

its not necessarily music production but idk what word im looking for exactly, most likely flow, but i really like when the rap im listening to is regular and then theres a certain part of the song where they IN and then they just go bar for bar for bar really quickly or they switch it up, etc etc, just overall i value flow way more over like substance or the beat for example, idk im really bad at explaining it tho, i really wanna find more stuff like this tho

1:37 to 1:46, meek actually does it madd times in this song, such as 1:56 to 2:07, and 2:47 to 2:58
1:40 to 1:55
1:00 to 1:10
1:30 to 1:40
2:00 to 2:17
0:44 to 1:00, this one is actually just one of the most notable verses that ever comes to mind whenever i think of good rap, like just bars on bars on bars
2:47 to 3:00
1:05 to 1:18
literally this entire song
1:18 til 1:40, polo g's entire verse in this just had such a good flow, but those time stamps were the best part really
0:45 to 1:00
1:55 to 2:09
2:27 to 2:40, i think its the echo that really makes this so much better
2:07 to 2:22
2:00 to 2:08
0:40 to 0:57
1:52 to 2:15
1:52 to 2:10
1:44 to 2:07
this entire first verse is just fucking wild
1:27 to 1:37
1:27 to 1:53
1:37 to 1:48
0:27 to 0:45, this is a hook but its still a good example

Harp on the background of Frank Ocean's "Nikes" sends me to other dimension
Same with Nights transition from 1st to 2nd half, which also divide whole 1 hour album into two 30 minutes parts. By bifurcating the album, he changes the mood of the album completely
Also Blood Orange's "Chewing Gum" hooking me by overturning sample completely to make it sound absolutely different in his interpretation, not talking about godly vocals from both Devonte and Rakim

I am a firm believer in that there is no such thing as too many microphones when recording drums. The most I have used for tracking drums is 17 thus far.

not exactly production, I’d probably say it’s more theory related but I love songs that dip in and out of major/minor chords. For you layman, songs that have melodies that go from happy/uplifting to somber or scary, all in the same 2-3 measures.

some examples:
https://youtu.be/mUGDxyG1kOI practically the whole song is an example
https://youtu.be/I65_S78WHJY the violin ensemble at the start of this song is my favorite example (since childhood)
https://youtu.be/_7Ab58XyWnE not the best example, this song is mostly minor Id say, but the chord progression B)

also recently got into fast Detroit techno/Chicago jungle music, if you’d like to listen; https://youtu.be/JK8ilaPZbKE

buudphonk cowbell

this too the lowfi 808/memphis phonk cowbell is very pleasing on my ear
tiktok popularized song heavily using it go to 50 seconds in if you just wanna hear the bell

anything spaceghostpurrp produced is an instant classic. the whole raider klan crew should be on top of the music scene rn, fellas were ahead of their time. sybyr/syringe more or less poured more fuel into the fire of trap metal and had innovative producing, also ahead of his time (in my opinion)
black kray is why most emo rappers exist today. fuck lil tracy and gbc for jacking goth money's style!!! get out from here's!!!
anything these guys did (except for lil tracy and gbc) innovated the whole underground rap game

totally missed the point here but anything that is unmixed and unmastered is blessed as fuck, fuck a record label, fuck a mixer and a sound engineer, go back to being nerds or some shit

edit: also producers who put noise in their music are cool

- i love big atmospheric shit like the grimey synth thing? (not sure what it is) in kill all rats - conway the machine
- another example of that deep atmospheric sound is in deltron 3030 - time keeps on slipping (happens at 2:33 as well)
- this sound is a little cursed but sort of oddly satisfying, sounds almost like a whale or smt lol funki porcini - moog river
- the guitar layering/editing in the beginning of Madvillain - Great Day (Four Tet Remix) sounds like boards of canada and is super satisfying, then i love the long slow build up until it picks up with the drums after the 'booze' line (1:39 and again at the end 2:23

- another thing i really like is hearing oldschool southern three six mafia type samples in current songs, isaiah rashad did it in lay with ya 0:13 which did the original song justice and made it sound better imo, also love the triple repeated snare (i believe thats what it is idk im not a producer) at 1:35
- juicy j also samples three six in a lot of his songs which i feel like is a nice way to get the current generation of people to appreciate older stuff and the roots of current stuff, i really like the sample in the beginning of killa and then he does a super fast repeated snares thing before the verses which i love 2:06
- another of my fav things is an 808 slide, done a lot in UK drill, popularized by pop smoke - dior (link to breakdown by 808 melo, song legit gives me goosebumps when i hear the beat), something similar was also done in a more trap setting by london/metro on gucci mane - both eyes closed 0:39 1:05 and done a lot in drill beats by melo

- in terms of my favorite techniques though id probably say either mike deans guitar solos (hold my liquor and devil in a new dress are some of my favs) or his outros and use of synths, dude is actually so talented it literally does not make sense he can make kanye/travis sound so good (his outros for don toliver are great too def makes the songs better than they would be, think he worked on most of them)
- another fav of things by mike dean is the transition in 90210, really everything about that track is so well produced, then effects on the sample after the transtion (before the chorus) and then the synths have such a cool electronic vibe that contrasts nicely with the oldschool sounding drums (which sound way better than they did in kanye - last call where they were sampled from tbh)
- one of my fav moments in any song is the outro to kanye - new slaves, love it when everything comes together in a crescendo (dunno how much of this was mike dean vs the other producers tho)
