The IDM Production Bureau

Welcome to The IDM Production Bureau

Welcome to DARKSounds

Welcome to the DARK Sounds Community Forum. +++​

It's a great deal of time and effort to design, build and host DARK Sounds.. Being a producer of dark ambient music myself (Atsuhiko Cook), I wanted to create a social platform for like-minded producers and followers of the DARK IDM & EDM genres.

So this is my creation and I hand it over to you and rest of the community we build to expand its concepts and reach a greater audience.

Of course, as a community forum, we need to set some ground rules, a social contract between us to keep the forum safe, legal, and friendly. So, let's take a look.

Who Is This For​

The DARK Sounds community forum has been designed for all. Geared towards, lovers and producers of DARK Music and all its genres including, dark ambient, drum and bass, tech, wave, house, glitch and everything else. The forum is free to use and there are no plans to build or provide a paid-for service in the future.

If you are a producer, there is an option to alter your account type to Artist. This account change will alter the visible label our members have, showing other members they are Artists. It will also enable access to specific artist areas.

All that is left to do, is read the rules, accept them and sign up..
