cuz i'm one of the worst offenders in starting loads of little grime threads, i thought i'd start this thread, as a place where people can post little titbits of grime info. a little like those 'rolling threads' on ILM.
so, to kick things off:
YOU MUST get the young.dot EP. the best grime...
First with a tune from 2015. Keep up. But I love this tune. Like, really, really like it. Like, really like it.

Are you ready for the bloodclaat jungle techno?!!!!!!!!!!!
Dissensus is choosing and ranking its favourite jungle tracks.
Submit your ballots to me (sadmanbarty) over private message. All are welcome and encouraged to do so.
Ballots should be between 30-100 tracks (no more). Rank them as...
My first inaugural CHOON OF THE DAY is
Kate Bush - Watching You Without Me
I have chosen this one cos the bassline is totally fucked. Like a big animal dying, or being disturbed in its sleep.
Plus she's singing like that dwarf in Twin Peaks....
Personally I don't think 2014 has been a great year musically so I've been listening to mostly older stuff. I have 'discovered' PiL and Arthur Russell and have been loving 'em. Also been listening to a lot of stuff by The Fall, Can, Drexciya and DJ Sprinkles
like this, or this
or like, nitejwel or something
There is obviously something going on with House music in London with DJs like Mark Radford and dance styles such as cutting shapes / shuffling whatever it is called. Don't really know anything about it so excuse me if I sound ignorant. Thought a new thread to compile and cover what is happening...
Apologies if it's been posted before.
I wanna know the best jungle tracks. im a teenager in america so i totally missed out on the whole of jungle. Actually i would rather you not tell me the "best" tracks because i don't want to limit myself ie i want to make up my own mind. so just give me a jumping off point.
haim-if i could change your mind
tank-lost in you
tgt-sex aint never felt better
dexta daps-morning love
OK, Im looking for life changing and/or random events that had a major influence on the personal lives of musicians and/or the history of music - a couple of examples:
Geno Washington turning up at a party with a couple of Ian Brown's mates, and convincing Brown that he had what it took to be a...
I’d be up for organising a naughties nuum style poll so long as there’s sufficient enthusiasm (at least 10 people willing to participate). So if you guys are interested post some ideas for a poll. Also if you see a poll idea that you’d be interested in participating in say so, so that I can gage if...
I wanted to share this goldmine of unreleased Neptunes piffery with whoever what cares on here. And then I thunked: why not broaden this thread's remit so even those poor unfortunates who don't enjoy the Neptunes can join...
Ive searched, and found no thread on this topic specifically.
Id like to get some good ambient, but I imagine there is so much more out there than is actually good.
There are two reasons for this: one is that i use it to fall asleep to when tryin to drown out the sounds from outside my door...
amazing intervention by joe corré
perhaps we should have a dissensus meet up at the event?
Nina Simone sinnerman
John Coltrane a love supreme
Dubplate Boris. Supa D. Apple. Funky Taffa. and other Rinse DJs. Wigman (?). It's growing and changing. UK house: the new UK garage?
c'mon you beautiful bastards.
tell me what your fave ten long-players of this decade are.
Please name and shame, ideally with links to their work and explanations of why you like them.
I've scanned this article while at work so I've not ascertained to what extent it's a load of cobblers, but it interests me to consider if this phenomenon (if such a phenomenon exists) has had...
One of those annoying threads where no one really says anything but instead fills every post with youtube embeds so it takes ages to load.
I thought we needed one for drone.
we're going in...
Looking for similar stuff. Doom. Gloom. Moogs.
DEADLINE - 20th APRIL
OK so I cut and pasted the lists we already had together, this is what we've got to play with so far.
I done a bit of editing to take out doubles and organise it a little bit . The grime list is v messy but I didn't where to start with it as you can see?
Let me know...
What is it ? Is there an absolute definition of it ? Is it strictly a UK thing ?
Dan Hancock on afrobeats (not afrobeat). I was really into Ice Prince "Oleku" last year but admit I just figured an African act had finally found a way through the major label channels.
- untold stop what you're doing remix
- the bells sketch
- Mount Kimbie maybes remix
- harmonimixes of destiny's child, mala, pev and so many more
- R&S vocal album
i've got a very good feeling about this guy!
stone gongs in lalibela, ethiopia
UK Funky meets Trap/Road Rap?
I'm mildly curious as to whether Drake's 'One Dance' will trigger some sort of funky resurgence ala the Grime resurgence, which he didn't cause but certainly helped raise the profile of.
Funky is a bit like grime...
Happy New Year first of all!
I mostly lurk on here without posting, but suddenly this seemed the natural place to turn, as there's always some pretty deep musical knowledge on display on these boards. Couldn't see another thread dedicated to the topic, so here we go.
Having listened to roots...
Anyone got any good ones?
Ive put a couple here:
Phantom 45 - 45 glide, Chicagoan jungle DJ, shit hot on the decks, reminds me a bit of Kenny Ken in style and selection. Goes a bit hard at the end but still.
does anyone listen to him? he's not very well known in america but seems to be a seminal figure in some ways. I'm wondering what the general impression of his music is on this board
Here's my (entirely subjective) best of Joni Mitchell playlist. I'm throwing it together by listening to all of Joni Mitchell's album in chronological order, out of the corner of my ear, at work. Needless to say, this is all being very haphazardly executed.
This is a bad idea, insofar as I can...
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...
Inspired by Crowley slagging off bowies lyrics. No rappers allowed.
what is a showerman/showerface anyway?
i know jammer's one, and so is maximus, but why?
*without going clubbing much?
i realised i barely go to clubs anymore.
actually, i never really liked clubbing to begin with (well, apart from smaller/not so busy places), and that was when i DID go fairly regularly.
i just liked the music, and DJing, etc.
but you cant really hope to...
If you haven't caught up with the massive resurgence in Italian 1970s Afro-Cosmic DJ Danielle Baldelli, well there's no time like the present is there?
Simon posted some links here the other day if you want to find out more about Baldelli:...
Basically I mean anything from that grime/funky/jungle end of things, ideally would have MC/s on it but not necessarily.
Also wondering what's going on on this end of the spectrum these days. Where are the Petchy equivalents in 2016? Do they even exist?
Really this was going to be...
