its not just tunes made in london its tunes that were played on pirate radio a lot in london. (plus a lot of hiphop, which made its presence felt in other ways) pirate was not just jungle it was reggae, dancehall, r&b and rare groove too. so that all features.

junior dangerous tweeted my playlist but he wouldnt tweet droids if droid done one. he would think it was shit.

luka

droid would run out of tunes and start filling it up with eric clapton and other bands like the bluesbreakers and the yardbirds

what was yoru process for making this? did you write them all down or just type shit into youtube? really impressive!

luka
23-01-2015, 02:01 AM
used itunes a lot plus then youtube makes useful suggestions, tunes youd forgotten about etc. i was going to write things down until i realised how long that would take. also i wanted to finish before corpsey done his one lol the end bit is stuff id been looking into recently anyway early UKdancehall stuff. also over the years ive made lots of huge lists of tunes i like and posted them on dissensus so i was able to remind myself of what i like that way

One question - should I put this in shuffle mode, or is there a grand narrative?

From Coca Cola Bottle Shape > Red Light. A highly effective transition.

There's carefully crafted segues the only way it can be listened to is in order and in full without interuption. I need everyone to commit to that. It's like lord of the rings.

As if I couldn't be any more on board, you pull the LOTR reference.

You know when you see a UFC fighter being interviewed and they've got a voice like a Library assistant and you wish they sounded like a beast? Method Man is what they should sound like.

Had a flick through and this is epic. Just the education that the children need.

Two Bobby V tunes there and all- attention to detail. Loving the 2 Live Crew electro track, that's a new one on me

Obviously youtube being what it is this won't last long, videos will start going missing any minute now

Corpsey
23-01-2015, 01:18 PM
I don't think the more obscure videos will get taken down and a lot of the big ones are now on VEVO and so protected by copyright.

''Shit man, we go out in the streets at night, fuss and fight..." I really recognise this sample, think it must be from my DNB days.

and Fabulous Baker Boys sampled it for the equally great Rumours (incorrectly attributed to someone else here, seemingly cos it's slightly pitched up, leading to a sparkling ruckus in the comments)

Thank you so much for this Luka. What a gargantuan effort - I like the focus too, it's the spirit of London rather than the letter. Such a broad sweep too.

Zero B - Lock Up

Haven't heard this before, it's great.

Yes!!! It's a wicked tune. 1990 I think?

Reminds me of this old rave tune from a similar time:

Nice work, will put this about.

Might do one specifically with Grime music and documentaries.

good stuff. it made me time travel to my 15 year old self in the company of some uk hip hop heads who produced a tape beginning with this:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yw9GNz-EYP8

i remember the rush of excitement as the stipped down, evil, accelerated bomb squad-type rhythm reset my expectations of music. this was the future. i began a quiet search to procure similar stuff. i failed. only later (after a detour) did i experience a similar rush with digeridoo, i luv you, etc..

thanks luka!

Been listening for a few hours now - I know virtually nothing about most of the kinds of music on this but I've loved almost everything so far. Remains to be seen whether it can cure me of my visceral dislike of about 98% of r'n'b.

Cheers Luke, great work.

Edit: did Freestyle rip off Salt N Pepa, or vice-versa?

Joining the love-in on this - still working my way through the 1st 100 but it really is great so far.
I'm in a slightly odd position in that I'm familiar with most of the ardcore/jungle/garage/grime stuff but with the hip-hop/r&b/reggae/dancehall that's the inspiration and source-material for a lot of it I only really known the obvious stuff tbh. Hopefully the playlist should help me explore a lot deeper and I'm expecting plenty of 'oh so that's where the sample's from' moments (already had a few).
Nice one Luka :)

'Champion' what a tune

This x 1000.

Obviously it would be super-long for me to liveblog all my favourite discoveries from this, but for now I'll just add that Strafe - Set It Off is amazing.

luka

really happy if youre discovering tunes andy.

did Freestyle rip off Salt N Pepa, or vice-versa?

i dunno? what songs?
pleased youre enjoying it. it wont convert you to r&b i dont think unless its a nostalgia thing. like the new jack swing bits and the hiphop soul bits are very of their time and might please for that reason alone

Mr. Tea

i dunno? what songs?

The synth-strings on Don't Stop The Rock bear more than a passing resemblance to those on Push It, don't you think?

You're right, still can't stand that ultra-slick r'n'b sound, although the Aaliyah tune is quite good. I like a lot of the late-80s/early-90s rap-soul stuff.

luka
31-01-2015, 02:01 PM
well dont stop the rock came out first but i have to admit i never noticed the resemblance. will listen now.

luka your playlist says on dissensus its 1001 the youtube list is titled 1000 but the youtube list has 1002 inside it. is this some kind of trick / hidden message??
