    Has anyone else noticed a lot of tracks are starting to take a maschinen type direction. I like Dimension's Maschinen but feel I'm still getting into the style.

    Here's Maschinen -

    Delta Heavy did a similar thing with their remix of Valentino Khan's - Deep Down Low -https://soundcloud.com/owslaofficial/valentino-khan-deep-down-low-delta-heavy-remix

    And now here's an ID of a new DC Breaks track called Bad Flow -

    Personally I quite like this new style but what are your thoughts?

    It just follows the trend set by Noisia tunes like Oh Oh and Shaking Hands. Another example, but unlike those two I've mentioned, I quite like this one (Maschinen as well)

    Reminds me a lot of Noisia - Diplodocus which is not new at all.

    Oh yeah I can see that. Nothing wrong with these trends though I love it when a new style takes off

    I can't really see with Diplodocus but more with Like it hard but not really. I wouldn't say it's a rip-off though. It just didn't really do anything when Wilkinson released it but now people are more interested for some reason. Gotta say though Dimension is interesting. His style is quite simplistic and vaguely mainstream but still influencing biggish names (Chase & Status, Delta heavy DC Breaks etc.) Although a lot of these guys do have new albums out soon so they're probably looking all over to make a really diverse album

    I really rate him as a producer and wouldn't hate on him, I just think you can tell with almost any tune he released which other tune/sounds he tried to copy. Still makes his tunes then sound better then the 'source tune'.

    For me, a lot of Dimension's tunes have always sounded very Culture Shock inspired. The 'Dimension sound' was Culture Shock's first.

    I don't mind this though, because at least Dimension releases tunes (and they're still good).

    Yeah I totally get that with Dimension having a Culture Shock styled sound. Dimension Vs. Friction - Kinetic and Culture Shock's remix of Moko's your love sound really similar. I'm not too bothered about the sound being similar. A lot of Dimension's tunes do have that sound but he's still very original and creative with how he works with it which I like

    His first few releases on CYN were pretty fresh but then it all just started sounding like other people's work. Love to me was just take you higher VIP.

    Well I guess you could look at it that way. A lot of DNB producers do seem to copy other producers though. Sometimes a certain style seems to take off and last for a while. It's similar to the sound Camo & Krooked engineered when they released Zeitgeist. Anyway back to the point does anybody know more tunes like this?
