Classic Plastikman set
those tracks which date before 1977.
those tracks which date before 1977 and sound like they could have been made after 1977 by a post-punk act.
hairy yet also concise.
rock in love with other sounds (or other sounds which sound like rock).
Biggest sound of rap/pop/R&B in the last 5 years, and I figured fuck it, dissensus needs a thread. After all, Pandiculate was asking me a bit in the rap thread about it, but every time I try to start it gets me overwhelmed with trying to be a completist since its a genuine scene and not just "DJ...
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...
REAL hip-hop ONLY
GUNPLAY ON FEEL IT IN THE AIR
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...
im looking through this and smiling at photos, well that's my friday afternoon sorted out
I'm on the hunt for a top notch music licensor for a big project. Does anyone here know of such a person? PM / email me please: email@example.com
This sort of "consulting the Dissensian powers that be" thing strikes me as threadworthy. A bit tricky, though, as it will eventually grow too...
Youtube has become the primary way for me to find old but new-to-me music that I would otherwise have no way of ever knowing about. Being pretty young, this kind of stuff was being made when I was just a toddler. Here's a handful I've found thanks to the tube:
Starpoint - Object Of My Desire...
some nice stuff in here
most especially enjoyed the fungle here

Seems to be pretty set in stone now that Vinyl in clubs is dying out. Pretty tragic that people like Youngsta had to switch just cos clubs can't be bothered to look after turntables.
Also CDJ mixes can sound so machine-like sometimes, can hear them a mile off.
Does anyone know why clubs have...
Ok, everyone in the world knows who Giggs is, but is anyone else trying to keep up with South London's output at the moment? There's just mixtapes flying like bullets in all directions, it really feels like music-as-drive-by, and round where I live, it's everywhere.
OK, my girlfriend did a night to celebrate International Women's Day this year and last year too. The night had bands with (mainly) girls playing, female djs, workshops run by female artists and so on and so forth - you get the general idea. Anyway, it looks as though the night has spawned a more...
Not heard anything as good as Ashanti's 'Only U' or Amerie's '1 Thing' in a while. Any great r&b nuggets out there I've missed?
Dissensus Raw Productions
Place for raw, ruff, rude, jagged, edgy and strong vibe productions. Every producer is welcomed, even if you're not registered here!
The idea was from discussion about post-dubstep/future garage/etc. being too bland/polite/safe in rolling back to the future...
Northern style that a lot of bassline dj's also play or have switched to.
Post any examples / news / mixes.

I LOVE MUSIC DISCUSSES JUNGLE
It couldn't survive, thank christ. The rhythmic parameters of the genres were so small that the entire collected body of jungle could be summed up on a 'jungle setting' on a Casio. "Renegade Snares" is all I ever needed, personally.

great comments thread here about whether the americans could ROCK
à propos just heard buffalo springfield's "mr soul" again yesterday - a total rip-off of the stones "satisfaction". interesting in w/regards to this us/uk...
a friend (who will remain nameless) asked me about vintage arabic music for samples.
the best i can come up with really is oum kalsoum's stuff. not really the tightly cropped "singles" stuff, but the lps where she stretches out and things get madly losmic.
and there's the tangent/jean jenkins...

completely guilty of ignoring this band. actually knew the music when i woz growing up - but always felt seemy and forbidding (great!!!) should have put "Black...
i dont listen to music anymore but i had a job over winter where i listened to rinse all day and i loved it so much. that daytime playlist. the same 10 perfect songs on rotation day in day out. pop music that was so hip, this amalgamation of all my favourite things. made me really proud of the...
Just starting a forum regarding this topic and any info, insight or content regarding this matter..
here's my stuff
What's in it?
Dubplate Boris. Supa D. Apple. Funky Taffa. and other Rinse DJs. Wigman (?). It's growing and changing. UK house: the new UK garage?
doesn anyone know much about this? i'm sure it only started making an appearance on the pirates in about 95, 96. is this right? i couldn't get into it at first but then the mad energy took control and i used to enjoy the soca shows on stations like klymaxx etc. all i can remember though is the name...

OG grime mc from east ham. was on radio with petchy, spyro etc. turned producer few years ago. i know him from school but i hope thats not clouding my judgement
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...
never knew this backstory. stuart used to post on dissensus, not sure if he still checks in.
...as in the meeting point between speed garage and happy hardcore that's popular around sheffield. i love this stuff- it's so relentlessly upfront and over the top. nothing's too cheesy or obvious for bassline house, no bassline too crude and massive, and that means that it's instant fun.
cos i'm on a prince kick recently. i'm assuming everyone here likes prince right?
i haven't decided myself yet cos i want to revisit some stuff (especially sign o the times which i always thought was a bit overrated), but definitely leaning towards early minimal funk/new wave filthy era - dirty...
Given the current level of hype around London (well, it's been there a while), the fact that his albums out soon, 'track 9'...
There's no thread or even mention of him here, or any of that hip-hop scene in South. Just wonder what you lot think of it all, if you're aware of it.
Giggs has grew...
There's a church organ available to pick up from Rottingdean, East Sussex. It was recently removed from the local church and ended-up in my in-laws' garage. I've no idea what the guts of it are, but it takes a few seconds to warm up so...
ok so we had the great 2 step thread, and I thought it'd be good to have an accompanying thread about 4x4, UK or US.
so, what are your tips? obscure or otherwise...
been encountering lots of these type sounds... some of it can be described as abstract r'n'b blog-bass euphoric twerk-trance moody digital EDM bounce-trap with a bit of wobble, loads of drunk synths and micro-programming.
some of it can be interesting or even good. in theory. Fatima Al Qadiri...
