Hai.

First time posting, but thought I'd pick your brains as to who you'd want to hear an Essential Mix from, from within the UKG fraternity... Now obviously UKG is kinda all encompassing, but who would you want to see rep UKG on the Essential Mix in the near future?

People I thought of off hand include:
Sticky
MJ Cole
Roska

A colleague also suggested SBTRKT...

Thoughts? I have I missed some one really obvious who's doing big things right now?

Ben UFO
Oneman
Zed Bias

All good disc jockeys.

MJ Cole's already done one (not that that discounts him innit?).

Yeah people have done multiple ones in the past... so it's cool as long as it's not recently...

The thing is, it would be great to get someone in who's got a buzz going, but who is also properly repping the UKG scene. I kinda feel that some of the more Joy Orbison/SBTRKT kinda guys aren't necessarily in the UKG scene, but more in the general bass-culture movement thing... so for this time round, might not be appropriate.

@barebones - good to know!

100% ben ufo.

edit: tho after seeing your post about strict ukg, what about el-b? or fuck it, just ask oneman, he's partially responsible for 2step coming back the way it has and he's got tunes of tunes from that era.

Id be abit cautious of EL-b 's mixes atm unfortunately .

Oneman b2b BenUFO over the two hours, they know what garage is about.

Oneman! I've got so many sets/mixes and the garage selection is always ridiculous. 2 hour essential mix would be just a rinse show but more thought out i guess, as in premeditated.

Oneman's myspace is a nightmare. Multiple tracks start to play automatically, and I couldn't figure out where from. Farked with my head.

Yeah that's usually idiots posting autoplay tracks in the comments. try www.mixcloud.com/ONEMAN/

11 hour special.

that works in a big way - throw in some technical difficulties and interviews with jackmaster and i'm sold.

as for el-b - would definitely steer clear of that, unless you want an em with sweet shop, when i look at you, blinded by the lights and sincere nero remixes.

you lot must have seen much shitter el-b sets than i have - last time i saw him he was alright. played everything pitched up to like 145 for some reason, but didnt mind his selection. wasnt as bait as you'd think from this thread.

still, yeah, oneman. or that three-way b2b, whatever, that would be amazing too. asbo on mic.

I work for the production company that makes the Essential Mix. And my boss who produces it asks for my advice at times...although UKG ain't really my strong point so thought I'd ask yous lot.

But yep, I included Oneman on the list, so we shall see...

put him on down in brighton back in april, first 30 odd minutes was two copies of his roots of el-b mixing track to track, then he went into dubstep, playing the stuff i mentioned earlier as well as some wobble stuff i didnt recognise and some halfstep bits.

the only thing that made me happy about that set was how many people went outside for a cigarette once he stopped playing garage.

Oneman, Ben UFO or Whistla tbh

whoooaa...

what about Duncan Powell, EZ to name 2.

Oneman is a big DJ but there was a time a few years ago when UKG was pretty much just the uptown forum. Those were some dark times.

Holla at DJ Charma if you can find him aswell. He did alot of work in the 'dark ages'

10-06-2010, 03:57 PM
second for EZ, does Oneman even play Garage anymore?
All his recent mixes have seemed to be generic not quite funky/post dubstep

wise
10-06-2010, 03:58 PM
I've never heard Ben UFO play a garage set, anyone got linkage?

yeah this is a very fair point.

all very well to champion Oneman now (me included) but it's easy to forget 2002-2006 when DJs pushing UKG in the way that Oneman (until recently anyway) is doing, got no recognition at all really.

also, has EZ really never done an Essential Mix? that's actually stupid.

often starts sets with a fair amount of garage rather than playing a whole set of it.

the set linked here - http://www.dubstepforum.com/post448022.html?hilit=oneman%20saturn#p448022

has loads of fucking amazing UKG tunes. the mixing is absolutely sick aswell

That set is more of a dubstep set or early dubstep.

still looks good

Has anyone said Oneman yet?

His selection's great at the moment.

I have enjoyed his recent mixes to be fair..his selections are really well placed/timed and he always has fresh beats I havenít heard.

Oh and Jackmaster that stream you did the other night was killing it.

But if its a UKG mix, then Oneman isnt the right DJ

Hes doing big things with other music that has spawned from UKG and Dubstep

I'd say it's clear from the initial post that they're not strictly looking for a trad UKG DJ.

I'm not saying they're bad, just saying they're not garage

Is there that much straight UKG happening right now? I dont see (enough of) it,
there just seems to be (insert favourite future garage name here) more of the fwd garage sound that Oneman is playing, in which case he's perfect for it?

watch out for some new para (DEA project) beats. not all strictly original ukg but some proper stuff coming from him.
