The Embers Story

Ok

First off Hi - I go by the name of Shifty and I have been a member of DOA (DnB forum) since 2006.

Many years ago, circa 2011 a guy called Pecavi went on a bunch of music forums including this one and DOA proclaiming he had invented a new genre of music called 'Embers'.

He was, for the most part ridiculed and laughed at (despite actually making some sick beats) on the account that he was in fact just making breakbeat.

Embers was forgotten about - cast off to a far corner of the internet like that spooky ring from the Hobbit film.

But like that famous ring, Embers was not lost forever - just biding its time softly calling out to bass lovers waiting to be re-discovered... until one day in 2021 a rather strange creature called Golum (we call him RokOne aka Badger from DOA) stumbled upon the original Pecavi thread and started a light hearted competition for DOA forum members.

The challenge young RokOne set for us was to create as many Embers tracks as we liked in any style - we had a guide from the Creator himself copied from that original Embers thread 10 years earlier..

it's basically about drum's.

The music is created in 145 bpm so IT IS NO Big beat, Drum & Bass , Breakbeat or Jungle.

The drums are specifically made whit many ''sticks'' and ''snare rollings'' what create this fast aspect of the track at 145 bpm.

Why ''Embers Breaks'' ?

My big brother aleways call me ''Pecavi'' as music artist which means fire/flamme and for me music ( a song ) is like an embers that burn till the end ...


And like busy little elves we got to work.... as the months past by the competition grew far beyond its original scope. The Embers, smouldering, burning, lighting a fire of creativity, heavy basses and pounding breaks. Sub genres were formed from ashes.. Jembers, Wembers, Dembers to name but a few .... covering all aspects of modern electronic music... nothing was too daring... nothing was taboo.

A fledgling movement rose up from the fire built on the founding pillars set out by the great creator all those years ago. Now in its 6 month we have a radio show hosted by the legendary DJ NUTTA from his Kebab van every Sunday at 10pm (KSSS Radio - search for it on YT :yesyes: ya dun know)... All music played on KSSS is original dubs made by DOA members and the scene is growing - at last count there were over 200 original tunes from over 40 artists.

We would like to officially invite you to the party... please try to wear slippers and have some beer to drink if you swing by the show later. It would be great if you said HI in the chat :pimp:

It's true. Embers was a joke but it's become an active community this year.

Already two dozen hardcore emberists have signed up here on the sly to slowly take over this forum in the coming weeks :woo:

Whatever the case might be, I support the increase in activity.

This is the weekly radioshow, the place where it's at: https://www.youtube.com/user/p43b4c/videos

This week's show is quite good, lots of fresh dubs and it has the official announcement that the real Optical (of Virus Rec) will judge Embers tune of the year next month. In Nutta's words: you don no

There is another radio show where Embers are played occasionally, Bam Bam radio. There was an Embers soundclash bwteeen those two shows some months back: https://www.mixcloud.com/EmbersMassive/ ... 1-in-full/

There is also an artist showcase mix: http://subcon-fusion.com/mixes/fridge/c ... ks_mix.htm

And tons of tunes spread across a long, long thread: https://www.dogsonacid.com/threads/embe ... 75.812341/

These are some of the new producers and some of their tunes:

I was in stitches reading through the original embers thread at the weekend.

viewtopic.php?t=146184

Although it was borderline cyber-bullying, viewed through the lens of modern times, where trolling has become much more well known and talked about. Pretty much the same reaction wherever he posted it.

Hope that guy came out of it all ok.
