#32 music production techniques that make you nut in Music, Movies, TV
GrapeJuiceIIII like chopped vocals such as in "Way It Goes" by Hippo Campus, or "Feeling Better" by Michal Menert

this is usually achieved via some sort of delay, or, more likely, a gate triggered by sidechain input.

GrapeJuiceIIII 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)

i love when this happens, too, and albums that do this are usually referred to as gapless albums. makes it sound like you're listening to one long song as opposed to a bunch of individual songs. some albums off the top of my head that do this include Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon (or any prog album, really), The KLF's Chill Out, Orbital's The Middle of Nowhere, Time Hecker's Ravedeath, 1972, or any classical/live recordings. this is also why i like dj sets because they're continuous mixes of songs that transition seamlessly from one to the next (e.g. 1, 2, 3).

some of my favorite production elements/techniques:

- the way the entire song stops at 7:11 on Aphex Twin's "Ziggomatic 17" for a single note to be played, then picks right back up
- the vocal harmonies on Low's "Days Like These" coupled with the bone-crushing walls of distortion at 1:17
- usage of sub-bass in ambient contexts such as Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement's "Jungle is a Shapeshifter" or Stars of the Lid's "Requiem for Dying Mothers, Pt. 2"
- the fact that the "snare" in Jan Jelinek's "Them, Their" is a single dirac delta impulse just blows my mind
- dub-style delay in non-dub contexts like in Pub's "Summer"
- fusions of ethnic/traditional percussion and instrumentation with electronics in Muslimgauze's "Mullah Said" and Shackleton's "Music for the Quiet Hour, Pt. 3"
- the usage of general midi soundfonts on Oneohtrix Point Never's "Problem Areas" and CFCF's "Rain Dance"
- the swelling vocal samples and synths in the background of Lemon Jelly's "Oats"
- how well the metronome works in Porter Robinson's "Mother"
- influences of classical minimalism in non-classical songs such as Event Cloak's "Life Strategies" or Tortoise's "Ten-Day Interval"
- the bit crushing that happens at 2:13 on Daft Punk's "Short Circuit"
- the super urban-sounding drum loop that underpins the entirety of Bowery Electric's "Fear of Flying"
- general usage of fat-sounding analog synth basses like on Jessie Ware's "Please" and Underworld's "Jumbo"
- sample incorporation of any kind ranging from The Avalanches' Since I Left You (also a gapless album) and DJ Shadow's Endtroducing....., to The Books' The Lemon of Pink and Girl Talk's Feed the Animals
