G-DARIA (Drum and Bass) [Only two songs were released under this alias, which were originally from a two-track Jackal Queenston / Sonitus Vir EP. Renard felt that the aliases didn't fit the songs, and later added them into ON Trax Vol. 2 under this alias. It eventually became what is now Darius.]
Album Title Drop: The Queenstons' Figurehead. The first song (Figurehead, of course) namedrops the album.
Several of the "Best Of" Albums are like this. "Because Maybe!" from the Renard track Sinisterrrrrrrr, "I Knew A Little Bookworm" from the Klippa track Bookworm, and "It's Murder" from the Mayhem track of the same name.
Chiptune: Kitsune2, a fan favorite, primarily produces chip pieces. A lot of others blur the line between this and techno. One of Klippa's album termed it "Arcadepunk".
Concept Album: Kitcaliber's album "D.Freq.Crush". From the intro:
in the year 2001, our connections are shut down. team GUNDOGS was sent against the powerful enemy force, RICOCHET AASVOGELS. they were destroyed. OPERATION HELL DIVE was a failure. we are the new resistance. we are only two, but we are armed with skills that training does not amount to. we are armed with vision and audio. DIRECTIVE: FREQUENCY CRUSHER is now active.
A: great! piracy rules. piracy and filesharing are great promotional tools, and help spread the word of artists.
Do Not Call Me Dave: Renard does not like people he doesn't know referring to him by his birth name, Dave Remmler, which can only be seen on a couple of websites (none of which are his own), and his personal Facebook page. In May 2012 he posted a blog entry asking people to stop using his birth name, saying that even his partner Squeedge calls him Renard. So please, even though you just read his "real" name, DON'T use it.
I wouldn't recommend paying for this. or even downloading it for free.
Open Secret: Renard even acknowledges that all the other artists are him in the latest version of the site. Before this, it was actually somewhat difficult for a new fan to pick up on that without direct spoilers.
Protest Song: Truxton's work is basically a giant middle finger to every major piece of anti-piracy legislation out there, including SOPA, PIPA and ACTA, primarily because their work consists to a large extent of use of copyrighted music, yet their work is still protected under current American legislation, which Truxton took glee pointing out when releasing Hellhound.
Also, to some extent, the This Place Will Grow EP.
Recurring Song: Amber Starlight has received various permutations and remixes.
Refuge in Audacity: Some of the songs are this. So is Renard by the fact that he's completely insane.
Running Gag: Starting with Post-Apocalyptic Porn Groove and going all the way up through SPEEDKORE 4 KIDZ!, the album credits were usually something along the lines of "all music written/produced/tracked/____ by [artist]", with the ____ being something related to the musician or their genre; e.g.: Renard - "contrived/demolished"; Mayhem - "sliced and diced"; Azrael - "distorted"; The Quick Brown Fox - "dsfhkjsfjh'd".
Sampling: All the artists (especially Truxton and Renard) sample a lot.
