PVC release is a big one, hope the Q label is shaping up to mould this year in this area.


Those tunes you posted are months old some of them, so not really '2014'.

This is pretty good:

Loving how this stuff is going in the charts. Heard a new Gorgon City track for the first time yesterday afternoon on Radio 1. Transported me back to 2:31.

I am aware of this, was attempting to set a precedent for what should be posted in this thread
Yes, fair enough.

This has been destroying it so even though it was in the Jackin' thread, it should go in here too:

Not 100% sure about Jackin' being a total write off. There is still good tunes coming out that wouldn't necessarily be classed as HnB:

Yo, I definitely wouldn't say the sound of jackin's dead! That's the funny thing, despite none of the major DJs using the name to describe themselves anymore I still think jackin as a sound remains remarkably coherent, with a big sonic gap between the likes of Lorenzo and Hybrid theory and the more 'bass house' stuff like My Nu Leng etc. whereby basically I like northern/midlands stuff and the southern stuff in the same ballpark leaves me cold.

Plus I definitely don't think this 'house & bass' thing should be encouraged, even if that's the direction things are going...

+ I would definitely stretch your golden years of jackin to include 2013, was an absolutely mental year for releases despite things slowing down in the second half.

But yeah, I do definitely see things moving in this direction, but I still think it kind of sucks...

Yeah no, you're right, like I think it's good for their to be a discussion of this stuff, and to the extent that house & bass refers to house music with bass in it, it's obviously where 100% of the action is in the UK at the moment.

Still, I guess what I don't like about it is that, despite it's claims to be playing anything good, it's all just music, that sort of vibe running through a lot of the discorse in DJs interviews etc, I'd actually say it obscures diversity rather than encourages it. That's why though I'll admit jackin's definitely loosing energy, I still prefer to discus it as its own scene with its own sound, its own conventions etc, rather than just group it in here, especially as, as a DJ and as a music fan, I'm actually trying to support jackin over and above other music classed as house & bass that I find very boring.

I suppose at the end of the day I like music in its specificity, its unique flavour rather than as this "it's all just music" thing. So like, I'd rather discuss that absolutely banging Flava D track in regards to its relationship to bassline, or say the Friend Within - Renegade Master anthem from last year in relation to speed garage, rather than in relation to absolutely all house music being made in the UK at the moment.

Edit: for what it's worth, I also definitely don't see deep tech amalgamating into this stuff. Interestingly from my conversations with Lorenzo and Mark Radford, they're both fairly uninterested in what the other's doing.

Nice bouncy vybez, love Katy B anyway some I'm predisposition to like it, even if it does demonstrate the lack of energy I see in this stuff verses jackin proper. Could see Benny B digging it on that poppy-vocal flex!

this is probably a pointless query as it depends on if you know jadakiss, but i heard a track on rinse a while back, which was a pretty tuff house tune, which to my surprise was broken up with a jadakiss vocal sample. there were a few like this actually, house tunes with hardcore rap samples for the hook. if anyone knows what they are, id love to know.

I reckon it could have been a Deep Tech tune (check the Shuffling House thread) - loads of those tunes use samples by rappers like Nas, Biggie et al

Looking at ILXs list of best tunes of 2013 I realised how many great pop-house tunes there were last year ("Need U (100%)", "Imagine It Was Us", ''Jaded'' etc.) - I'm totally down for another summer of that shit, as tired as I am of house up to a point.

So this is a few months old now, but it kind of perfectly captures my feelings towards a lot of house & bass:
http://www.beatport.com/release/cant-leave/1209871

It's like, super close to something I would find sick. I'm caught almost exactly between finding it banging and boring, but then I clock I can't really be arsed to listen to the track the whole way through. Don't know what it is about this stuff that makes it different to all the jackin I loved 2012- and the first half of last year - obviously something to do with the lack of bait vocals, but I think it's the sound pallet too. Something just the wrong side of brockout...

It's odd though, cause in someways it's pretty close to what Hybrid Theory's doing, but he just has much better ideas for drops, and more wobbles and warps to keep things interesting,

This is definitely more the sound I heard when I went to 02:31 over Christmas and on New Years, but it was still the jackin anthems where shit really popped off - bit bait ones like Faces.

Seems like such a clearly backwards step from

Article on 'House & Bass' from EDM DOT COM http://edm.com/blog/house-bass

Starting to feel like this sound is the new Brostep, people I know and the DJs/crowds I'm spotting raving about this Jump-Up side of the sound are more UK Hip-Hop & weed than fake tan & gyms

I feel it has followed that dubstep/brostep trajectory of originality declining in favour of bigger/filthier drops

And not a million miles away from this:

but some how just awkwardly more on the house & bass side of things... which probably shows the terms have a lot of overlap at the moment..

T. Williams & Shadow Child - Want You To (http://youtu.be/CIY6rMvSuBs)

I’m not a massive fan of Shadow Child but this collab with T. Williams (who I do rate) has just been released on PMR and is real good. Heard it on Hannah Wants mix on Mista Jam’s 1Xtra show from Tuesday which you can still listen back to on the 1Xtra website. She also plays that ‘Bugatti’ track by Tiga. What a load shite that is.
