ok - obviously a difficult thread to start without inviting spam or self-promotion - neither of which will be tolerated.

the rule is this:

1) recommend either a mix on youtube, a youtube playlist, a spotify playlist, a soundcloud, mixcloud mix or direct download (you get the idea - other formats tolerated)

2) must be by a third, unrelated party.

3) one mix per post.

4) the more wide-ranging musically the better. new or old music. mix can be strictly hip-hop or strictly rock music - but both would be eligible. as would a genre pile-up.

5) has to be ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT. no chaff pls.

Not going particularly obscure here, but I think Kode9's DJ Kicks fits the criteria. It's everything UK Bass could have but wasn't.

ILX's Andy Kellman has compiled playlists of 20 R&B songs from the 1970s up to the close of the 90s. This one is 1990. They're all great. He's also done numerous other ILX related playlists.

Woebot do you mean that the mix itself has to be wide-ranging musically or that the thread can encompass all sorts of genres?

Because if it's the latter then Mickey Finn's set for Roasts Christmas Party 1994 is a must. Not just one of my favourite mixes, but one of my favourite 'albums' (maybe THE favourite) of all time.

Great analogy; I've listened to it sooo many times and I still get lost in it in that Terry Riley way, where I can't work out how long I've been listening to it, or what point I'm at in the mix, or how long I've been alive.

Not really a fan of Bukem as a producer, but this is one of the best jungle mixes ever recorded during the golden years

nice mix droid. enjoyed that, thanks.

i would say that it's pretty much *exactly* typical of bukem's mix-style (not remotely uncharacteristic of him) and descriptive of his production style too. i think perhaps you're being a bit wary of the trendy dissensus speed backlash...

unlike metalheadz in hoxton square (always distinctly meh - went once in the first month, hated it) for a long time speed was incredibly exciting. i went to all the events in those days: paradise garage, awol, voodoo magic and it can only be time tourists who weren't actually around, or guys still at school, who slag speed off.

i was there on the opening night - there were only five of us - magic times. ok, after by "pulp fiction" it was over - but that took a long time.

05-11-2015, 11:31 PM
Dont get me wrong, he's an excellent DJ. Long, precise mixes with synced up progressions and little touches on the kills and faders. His style was a big influence on Naphta and by osmosis, myself.

GLR though, I think is one of the most overrated of the classic labels. Some absolute bangers early on, but the energy petered out very quickly.

I imagine the physical reality of speed was much more exciting than what its come to symbolise, if only by virtue of the fact that there was nowhere else really dedicated to the deeper end of jungle when it started.

I have heard some amazing stories from Metalheadz TBF, but it was almost a different era.

Some reminisces from your junglist days would be welcome if youre ever stuck for blog ideas.

Merlin Bobb on WBLS, the mid-eighties.

https://500mileshigh.wordpress.com/2012/01/16/merlin-bobb-wbls-martin-luther-king-day-1986/

This was broadcast on Martin Luther King Day 1986. House was still the young pretender. This is still a very New York sound, taking in the cream of older bits from Prelude, Gold Mind and European stuff from the likes of Robotnik, in between the jacking. Real Friday night stuff.

There are a few things that take me most about this era; people were really starting to master DJing and exploit drum machines and samplers. Competition must have been fierce. New York sound systems were probably the best in the world and the possibilities of these new machines were really being pushed. The clatter of claps, toms and cowbells must really have been the ardkore of its day. Like thunder compared to the snare rolls all over the place at the moment. There is a video of the closing party at the garage on youtube and when Larry drops Adonis - 'too far gone' it sounds so alien and enormous compared to even the most opulent disco produced by old masters in multimillion dollar studios.

There are certain great combinations through the years; 808/303, 909/Korg M1, Amen/Reese, etc. This period as far I can make out from this mix, is the tail end of Oberheim DMX drum and Prophet keys. (Flash 'The Message', David Joseph 'You Can't Hide Your Love', Levan's Weekend mix, various Kevorkian staples, etc) This mix really represents how there was real burst forward in several directions in years between disco going back underground and that NYC club sound getting a bit codified and more tasteful with the rise of garage house proper. Offbeat disco and cutting-edge electro could be found at the same office at Sleeping Bag records and all that.

I find the whole attitude and approach so different to what is held up now and how the song based nature of things acted as a kind of anchor, allowing more coherent blend of styles and Bobb does an exceptional job here. The mixing is superb. He's one DJ that I feel didn't get enough recognition as other names are remembered.

J-Rolla's Pirate radio mix - one of the best hardcore/jungle mixes Ive heard in the last 10 years:

http://drumtrip.co.uk/mixes/drumtrip-sessions-04-j-rolla/


So this set is based around tunes from the 93-94 era (with one from 92 thrown in that was way ahead of its time) that were big pirate radio favourites of mine, tunes that instantly make me think of a particular station, DJ/MC, tape, time or place the second I hear that breakdown. Basically tunes that had a positive impact on me, that I went out and bought because of pirate radio.

I have spliced in little sections of some of my old recordings (mainly Kool FM ones) that I happen to have ripped and saved on my computer – I tried not to go overboard with this, but did include some slightly longer memorable clips, like the infamous “Duffer Paul” reload, Kool FM NYE 94 into 95, which friends and me creased up over many times.

A lot of these tunes are not heard so much these days compared to the bigger anthems (many of which owe their success to stations like Kool and Rush), some are a bit rough around the edges and some were overshadowed by a monster of an anthem on the flipside (Renegade’s Something I Feel for example).

I purposefully didn’t play tracks by the same artist or on the same label more than once to try and get a nice cross-section of music in there, but it was very tough to leave some out, especially when flicking through the Reinforced back cat from this era. Also, I didn’t want to repeat tunes that already feature in previous mixes of mine such as “Just About Jungle”, which is packed with a lot of my old pirate favourites.

*Disclaimer - our third release on Ruff Revival was a collaboration between this guy and Ricky Force, and I've met him a couple of times, other than that, no relationship, and in fact, I kind of hate him for doing this mix.

These are exactly what you are looking for

http://www.musicismysanctuary.com/category/exclusive-mixes/throw-em-up

In the summer of 2012, Onra & Lexis joined forces to tackle a project based on a music period they both love so much. That brief period from approximately ’93 to ’96: the New Jack Swing sound got dated and soulful club music became much closer to the Hip-Hop productions of the time to create this Urban R’n’B type of music.

We simply call this era the “Throw Em’ Up” period in reference to the way that everyone in clubs and videos was vibin’ to these tracks: just throw up both your arms and wave them around nonchalantly (if possible with a champagne glass). The selection rules we followed for Vol. 2 are simple: #1: Soul artists featuring MC’s are ok, but not the other way around. #2: All of the picks have to pass the “throw em’ up” dance test, which means: no New Jack Swing stuff, no Timbaland because although Timbo is a genius it’s really a different kind of sound which shaped the late 90′s / early 2000′s sound.

I've only listened to vol2 but its quality, check the tl!

a mixmaster morris nineties-style mix would be made of: the tangerine dream/popol vuh end of krautrock (check), some meditational jazz (check), some beatless detroit techno (check) and a (too) large a dose of ninja tune neo-techno-jazz (check)

Mark Ruff Ryder pirate radio mix 2000. Don't think I've ever heard a 2step mix quite like this; it avoids the RnB end of things, the rap/dancehall end of things and the proto-dubstep end of things. I imagine it's the sought of mix you'd get if the 'intelligent' jungle DJ's started playing 2step.

On the ecstasy-amphetamines spectrum of 1992 hardcore this is more ecstasy; slower, mellower, euphoric rather then frantic. The slower tempos bring out the funkiness of the breaks which, when played faster, become more driving than groovy. Also a better recording than most of the 1992 sets available on youtube.

heh heh. well i'm no longer too bothered if i cant download - being swamped with physical media.

i think with mixcloud as a user it's a pact worth embracing. yes no downloads BUT equally no problems with copyright.

it must be how they've argued their status with the PRS. if an identified track is played - then if the copyright owner is registered they get a percentage of advertising revenue. a bit like spotify free.

i hope to god they can keep that argument convincing - i dont see why not - but i suspect they will eventually get shut down.

That's enough time for me to revisit it and enjoy it, rather than be frustrated that it doesn't feel new anymore.

Oh yeah that DJ Earl mix is great, really draws on jungle/hardcore samples as I recall?

For me footwork was most exciting when it was allied to the actual footwork dancing battles. Think I heard it once or twice in clubs but I never really understood how you could dance to stuff designed for wild dancing without dancing wildly.

i think it lost its way a bit (for me at least, though it could just be that i selfishly wanted it to remain 'pure', whatever that might mean) when it started to think globally rather than locally, though i didnt hate all the jungle-footwork stuff. though saying that, the jlin album was still excellent. but id be interested to know if its popularity is still the same in chicago, and if the dance battles are still going on as regularly.

sadmanbarty
15-04-2016, 11:16 AM
'pure', whatever that might mean

The bangs and works comps are relatively stark and relatively bleak compared to what came after (I'd say Double Cup exemplifies the other end of the spectrum), so maybe that's what you mean by pure. That might explain why you like Jlin. RP Boo is still making that style too.

15-04-2016, 12:09 PM
the last rp boo album was really good
i liked the last traxman stuff too
but maybe something is lost when producers start to think of hitting clubs in london rather than inspire dancers in chicago
i never liked double cup very much tbh, way too polished, sedate, and a bit dull overall. god bless the dead and everything, but a lot of rashads soulier stuff left me a bit bored, much as i wanted to like it (its not like i dont like soul music or soul-sampling rap).

Re. pure footwork

Pre-2010

Clap/snare emphasis is for the most part on the 2 and 4, which has a certain bounce and propulsion to it and as such sounds similar to Ghetto house.

2010-2012

The planet mu releases (and the stuff that came after) tend to have clap/snare emphasis on the 3 (like one drop rhythms), which is the same as a half-tempo 2 and 4. The samples and drums are frenetically going at normal speed so you get these 2 pulses happening. A lot of the time the snare will drop out, or there will be these weird syncopations, all of which adds to a strange, dissociative feel of the music.

I think this transition to more experimental rhythms is endemic of the music changing from populist, localized dance music to an international, hipster, chin-stroke music.

2013 Beyond

Double cup introduces a particular structure, which you now also get in footwork DJ sets. Tension is built with 2010-2012 style rhythms and then it is released as the kick/bass drops to half the tempo, accommodating the snare in a trap style rhythm. This tends to echo a verse-chorus structure.

Yeah, you'd think that after 20+ years of nerdy internet obsession the WATMM types would have collated every tune's bpm & key, warped them all to a grid for DJng and catalogued the whole thing - but it hasnt happened. I have a bunch of theories as to why this is - mainly relating to lack of physical scenes, type of fan, approach to listening etc... This is what I said about it a decade ago:


...my other gripe is slightly more prosaic, and concerns the low expectations people seem to have when it comes to DJ’s who work in this genre. I’ve lost count of the amount of live sets and mixes I’ve heard that we either full of trainwrecks, or featured no mixing at all - and when this is pointed out, the response is invariably something along the lines of “It doesn’t matter if this music is mixed or not”. I find this attitude completely baffling considering the roots of electronica lies in the mutation of late 80’s/early 90’s acid house and techno, and probably the two most influential labels in the genre, WARP and Rephlex both started out as dance labels. When the scene splintered in the mid/late 90’s, there were still 3 main strains identifiable by their derivation from either a techno/electro, jungle or hip-hop template, and a huge amount of material still qualified as ‘dance’ music despite the fact that it may not necessarily have been made with the dancefloor in mind. Even with deliberately downtempo material, there is still in my mind a functional relationship with the listener – to entice them to lie down rather than step up, and as the music is generally sequenced and quantized – why not mix it?

If anyone’s to blame for the devaluation of the role of the DJ in electronica circles it has to be the audience. Of course the fact that newbie DJ’s don’t really have a chance to learn their art in club environments doesn’t help, but, as in many fields that straddle the line between the commercial and the aesthetic, without expectations of excellence from the audience, there is little or no motivation to produce something excellent. As a result good electronica mixes are like hen’s teeth. This is a real shame in my opinion. Electronica is unique in that it’s a blob of the post-rave genres, endlessly absorbing and regurgitating other styles, which makes DJng it a particularly rewarding experience. If genre mixing is monochromatic painting in shades of 1 colour, then mixing electronica is like having a full palette of colours. Sure it might be a bit more difficult than mixing music that’s been made specifically with the DJ in mind, but that’s also what makes it so interesting...

You will find people like Surgeon throwing in the odd Aphex tune into a techno set, and label bosses/producers doing occasional credible mixes, but generally there's no emphasis on mixing in electronica - Id say we were up there with a very small handful of DJ's who used to regularly play this kind of stuff out and attempt to mix it, and even then it would be a special occasion when we managed to pull off a good mix with an Aphex Tune.

It also doesnt help that a lot of this stuff is just really, really difficult to mix. Heavy on melody, little or nothing in the way of predictable structures, lack of breakdowns... they could generally be classed as songs, not tracks. I asked Paradinas and Aphex the same question years back -'why is your stuff so hard to mix' - and the answer was more or less the same 'its not meant to be mixed/its not for DJ's', though the rise of digital Dj'ng should really have remedied this.

Not to spam, but we have made a few attempts down through the years with varying levels of success:

I also have about 40 hours of pirate radio tapes of mainly hardcore electronica from '98 - '03 which may make it online in some edited form at some stage.

This is at the forefront of my mind as I'm and hour and a half into on a digitally mixed Magnum Opus of classic 90's electronica: Aphex, Autechre, B12, Cylob, Bochum Welt, FSOL, Disjecta, Vendor Refill etc. and there's literally no reference points out there. Its basically uncharted territory...

yeah - basically the aphex twin was music for students who couldn't dance. not knocking that particularly but that's why there are no beat mixes of it. they probably thought beat-mixing was insufficently avant-garde or summat too.

ALSO on decks mixing techno properly is much more unforgiving than jungle. beat has to be absolutely bang-on. but of course you know this.

I think that's a touch harsh, after all, early WARP & Aphex type stuff was played out a bit at the time - but I reckon that once electronica divorced itself from the dancefloor and any particular club oriented scene then that aspect just died out, though you would still find the likes of Mixmaster Morris playing it out amongst all the downtempo ninja type stuff.


ALSO on decks mixing techno properly is much more unforgiving than jungle. beat has to be absolutely bang-on. but of course you know this.

I would have passionately disagreed with this once upon a time - in relation to 4 to the floor in general, and I think a lot depends on your ears and other factors. Im basically a waver detecting machine at this point, which is not so great in many ways. Also, the environment and the method of listening has a huge effect. I had a set of the infamous Yamaha NS10's in the studio at one point and I just couldnt seem to get my mixes tight enough - listened on headphones and they sounded fine...

Thing is, it's swings and roundabouts. Jungle has less space between the beats so you hear things drifting more quickly - but so can your audience, plus you have much fewer opportunities to tweak the mix. Techno on the other hand has more space (depending on the high hats), so there's potential for more drift before you realise it, but also more opportunity to correct it. There's a ton of other factors as well, but i still think if you learn to mix well with jungle then you can pretty much take on any other genre of dance music*, if only because there is so much variation in structure, instrumentation & styles which demand the development of a wider range of skills and approaches. Also to note - jungle is still the only type of dance music which consistently confounds auto-bpm's and auto-detected beat grids. Its immune to automation.

*Except for garage. That f***ing high-hat swing forces you to unlearn everything you know.

i dunno - maybe it's a personal thing - but all those breakbeats clattering around always seemed to me a more forgiving environment.

perhaps it's because i learned to beat mix techno - and by the time jungle came along i was a bit better at it?

I think it depends on what style - definitely a bit more leeway in the hardcore era - though you then have to deal with tunes being out of key with themselves, breakdowns every 16 bars and lack of quantisation in breaks...

Listened to your London techno mix btw - couple of nice tunes on there I hadnt heard. Reminded me that Im going to have to get some global communication into my mix.

Corpsey
25-04-2016, 12:11 PM
When I graduated from mixing DNB to jungle it was difficult to deal with cos jungle was quite structurally inventive. DNB was anything but, which explains the phenomenon of DJs who double and even triple drop tunes, tease in tracks, etc.

What with the rise of Ableton/Serato, etc., has the idea of the virtuoso DJ died out too?

droid
25-04-2016, 12:14 PM
One good thing about learning the traditional way - it forces you to put in the hours, get deep inside the tunes and really pay attention to what's going on... TBH, most of the DJ's I rate still come from that background anyway.

Reminded me that Im going to have to get some global communication into my mix.

That is, if I can find some that isn't monstrously chill-out-cheesy.

DJ Stingray 2003

The opposite end to the spectrum to Larry Levan. Pretty much wall-to-wall intense electro.

I like how the compression on this recording distorts the sub-bass, too.

This is very intense for a sit and listen FYI

Back to the Warp/etc. discussion - I did really admire the mixing on the Warp Blech II (https://www.discogs.com/Various-Blech-II-Blechsd%C3%B6ttir/release/3623) CD. The style, coupled with my mistaken understanding at the time that it was built on a computer, was probably the biggest influence on my first Ableton mixes.

There's not a lot of it online but here are two clips...

suprised by how much i enjoyed this. actually loved it. i admit i felt slightly irritated by the contrarian/trolling intro matt wrote for it. reminded me of his attempt to downplay the significance of reggae to jungle, and boost the (in truth non existaent) contribution detroit techno had made, but i suppose that was the point of writing it, so fair play and the mix is brilliant, not one shit tune and the mixing itself is a lot better than in previous installments.


The sonic argument here is that, in real terms, in genres spawned and ideas conceived, New York was the true sonic innovator of the golden era of dance music (1984-96). New York gave us House (the epicentre moved from Chicago quite quickly), Rave (Beltram, Landlord), Trance (Revelation - first trance track IMHO), Ambient House (the likes of Sound Waves), Jazz House (Burrell), and Dub Techno - Dubstep, even! (Bobby Konders).

good work woebot

Listening to an old favourite of mine at work

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4BfJhB_xZk

DJ Mastervibe @ Dreamscape 17 vs 18

This sort of jungle is perhaps on the 'tasteful' side for some peoples tastes but it makes me feel proper nostalgic for a period I was never around for. The gentle hardcore synths vs aggro drops is a real sweet spot for me. I guess what I'm really remembering is stuff like Baby D and the Prodigy from when I was too young and too provincial to actually go to raves. When the Helter Skelter/Dreamscape flyers made me imagine raves as some sort of magical otherworld. I don't think I was even aware of drugs in those days!

Some great footage of Jungle at its peak in 1996 in this video. More people had got the hang of the swaying and dipping Jungle dance by this point. I was 18 at the time and had been going to events at The Sanctuary for a little while already. This was when it was golden though. Two arenas (The Sanctuary and the converted roller skating rink Rollers next door). Alternating Happy Hardcore and Jungle DJs in both. Even though you would almost have two separate audiences leaving and entering depending on whether Jungle or HH was being played there was always cross pollination between the two types of raver due to the mixture of both styles in both rooms. A year later tech-step had started to come in and the vibe changed but in '96 the atmosphere at these events really was magical and otherworldly.

This New Blood entry focuses on the Belgian EBM/industrial/power electronics scene of the ‘90s. 6SISS gives us a compilation of obscurities, many of which have been lost to time, stuck on tapes released by dead labels or on limited homemade editions. Some of the artists are legends, appearing here by way of forgotten compilations cataloguing seedy analog dungeon music, while others may as well be anonymous. 6SISS’ mix takes us on a stunning tour of the entire landscape of one of the most iconic scenes in dark electronics
