        Pretty cool, thanks. I like it. I'm only missing some vocals. I'll check the band.

        Umm, haha, I don't know, I fail to see the resemblance. Too much rock, too much guitar for my taste. But thanks anyhow!

        I was trying to think of what genre that DJ Fresh track might fall into when I posted it and Bounce was one of the things I thought of. Great choice, I've always got time for some Big Freedia.

          Yeah that's what I thought was tough, it came off sounding like a more melodic-dance-bounce(?) track. Freedia was the first thing to pop into my head. Cheers buddy

      Little less refined but the first thing I thought of was Yolanda B Cool & DCUP - We No Speak Americano (bonus link to the brilliant original track)

      There's something this Parov Stelar track really reminds me of but I can't quite bring it to mind. It's an acid/nu-jazz classic featuring a sample "put your haaands up" and this is going to annoy me for the rest of the day until I suddenly recall what it is at 3am...

      Little late to the party, but my first thoughts were all obvious, Four Tet, Scuba, lots of music you'd find probably on a related youtube/spotify suggestions list. So I gave a listen to the specific Burial track you mentioned, and it reminded me of a lot of things I listened to in the 90s that you may or may not be familiar with. Underworld, Second Toughest in the Infants opening medly or a lot of things from the WipeoutXL soundtrack, a CD born of s playstation game. Or since Burial can sometimes drift toward ambient, you may like early Autechre, Glitch

          Yeah, was going for some older things. But also, I got heavy into Electronic again (comes in cylces) in 2010-2013. Seemed to be lots going on then. Actress. Flying Lotus. Gold Panda. If you're looking for interesting directions to sniff around, check out these live performances: Shigeto Ringleader on KEXP or Mount Kimbie NPR Tiny Desk Concert. And going a little more recent, there's little gems like Point Point Life in Grey or Jon Hopkins Emerald Rush It goes in so many directions. But flipping it, what other groups are you into? Any suggestions you've found similar to Burial?

      Very "related" (I think there was a law suit), and I adore this record for a lot of reasons not least being it was playing when I asked my girlfriend to marry me: Of Monsters and Men - Little Talks

          I'm not sure if there was an actual suit in the end, but I've definitely heard some complaining about the two tracks sounding the same. Might have just been from fans.

      Stomp and Holler is a great genre! http://everynoise.com/engenremap-stompandholler.html Lots to choose from here. I recommend J. Roddy Walston, Apache Relay, Generationals, Shovels & Rope, etc.

        Yeah, I'm decently familiar with Sigur Ros so I appreciate recommending something else instead. To be honest, I wasn't feeling that song too much. It wasn't bad, but It wasn't for me. I really like the build-up type songs that just climax with tons of "noise". Some of my favorite Sigur Ros songs that I think are similar to the Pacify song I liked are Glosoli and Festival.

          Sigur Ros are just one of those bands that I assume everyone knows about. They are great though - and if I had linked them Glosoli was going to be the track I'd have chosen. If you have an entire day free their Route One project is pretty cool. It's dip-in-an-outable easily enough though.

          On the long tracks building up to lots of noise front... I recommended this on another ~music thread just the other day but I'll mention it again because I'm currently obsessing over this band like a teenager over an anime character: Heilung - Krigsgaldr

          The Genre Mars Volta is in is a bit heavier and more energetic. Includes bands like Coheed & Cambria, Closure in Moscow, etc.
