Getting all Northern on this thread. Why did the particular sound come out of Yorkshire ? Massive bass on many of these tracks was this due to sound system culture. The influence of collapsing industry. Bit tired so more of my thoughts on that later but for now lets start with a track.

I think it was in the UK soundsystem doc Musically Mad - or his Woofah interview - that Mark Iration talks about sound clashing at raves, which sounds very appealing.

This was a good thread

^it was the woofah interview ;)

This is a good interview:

"Rob Gordon is the man who made Britain’s arse shake. He is the man who put the bass into bleep’n’bass – the Yorkshire sound circa 1989-1991 which was in turn the direct precursor of hardcore, jungle and so much of the most vital British music that has come since."

Just some favourites. Beyond Richard H. Kirk, were other industrial types actively involved?

As mentioned above it was simply referred to as house or bleep. The 'n' bass is something I heard much later.

Also want to touch on the issue that its often missed out in 'nuum discussions.

And yeah bleeps in grime I've this conversation with Martin Dust elsewhere and we came to the conclusion that many of the producers nowadays will have not locked into this music and don't cite it as an influence but to me the similarities are there. I reckon a grime mc could write bars to some of this stuff.

Outta time again . . .
