c'mon you beautiful bastards.
tell me what your fave ten long-players of this decade are.
First with a tune from 2015. Keep up. But I love this tune. Like, really, really like it. Like, really like it.

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 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.
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...
100 BPM, 808, crunk beats with funky, syncopated rhythmic stabs of samples (mainly vocals). The effect of these samples tends to be, as I said, funkiness rather headfuckery.
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...
It’s a term Luka’s used to describe a lot of the stuff I post, so maybe he would be so kind as to give us a proper definition.
In the meantime I’d say it’s any Dance or “Urban” music you’d like to post that’s a little avante-guard or left-field and doesn’t quite fit into other threads.
Really into some of her music. As a musical (and indeed general) ignoramus I'm not sure where this fits into the current landscape. I stumbled across her through an ILX Spotify playlist. I'd be happy to learn of similar music. It's kind of an 80s throwback, isn't it? Kate Bush is the influence that...
What other nightclubs are there in Europe which have the same kind of open music policy and vibe as Salon des Amateurs in Dusseldorf? I'm thinking small sweaty basements rather than superclubs - places where you get psychedelia mixed with techno and the crowd is up for dancing to that until seven...
I was reading this Guardian article (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/nov/06/reclusive-french-rap-duo-shun-record-deal-shoot-to-top-itunes-chart) and was wondering if you all had some non-English rap favourites as well. Could be any language I guess. Or is everybody here from either the UK or...
good to know some things about the record industry never change...

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...
When it comes to 2Step amongst music fans there's quite alot of skimming which passes for erudition. The canons of Ardkore, Drum and Bass and Grime are actually pretty exhaustive. Ardkore especially is known very deeply. I'd like to see the blind alleys of 2Step explored a little better.
Upon reading Woebot's post (http://www.woebot.com/2016/05/more-thoughts-on-vinyl.html and this Guardian http://www.theguardian.com/music/commentisfree/2016/may/15/selling-cds-spotify-digital-music-streaming article), I'm prompted to come out of the closet and proclaim my enjoyment of CDs.
i really liked the mad city one. then...
to pimp a butterfly was horribly naff, coke-addled, tuneless convoluted wank (i didn't like it)
the newer one has many of the same irritations but might be an improvement.
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...
Fly, my pretties! Fly!
the ones i'm loving right now are
john legend-used to love you
mario-let me love you
all gorgeous songs, i might get that akon album, has anyone heard it?
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...
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
I've been listening to Soundbombing 1 and 2, Superrappin' and Lyricist Lounge over the last few days and rediscovering the modest pleasures that attend late 90's underground rap music.
Of course, you get some complete no hopers, some wild eccentrics who veer all over the place, a general lack...
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...
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...
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.
really this year have been musically speaking depressing, i have, when possible, really been with my mind elsewhere (no, i don't take drugs...), like on Studio One clash in the '60, or at the Hacienda in the '80, or listening to jazz at the Vanguard in the '50, or to classic and avantgarde disco...
could someone please id this track for me?
.. i love em.. i could watch em all day!! recently, i've loved every second of
* soul deep
* howard goodall's how music works
* howard goodall's twentieth century greats
* buena vista social club
* wesley willis - the daddy of rock'n'roll
* others which i'm too tired to recall..
do you ever worry about this? london has had a great run. but from afar i cant help worrying that its sputtering to a halt. im not sur its about to go as shit as new york but it suffers from a lot of th same problems id imagine. genuflecting to a mythos, stupid rents, wowsers, overezalous policing,...
I am planning to save some of my ill-gotten gains up over the next few months to buy some speakers.
Currently, I have some 200 quid monitors that were useful for production but aren't that great for listening to music on. My housemate has some KRK 8s which seem fantastic for listening to music...

anyone had any experience with these?

The Sam Records Anthology (3xCD, Comp) HURTXCD 135 2015
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...
There's MASSES of this out there at the moment. My favourite mix at the moment is

The last few years have seen a number of underground music scenes cropping up from Africa, itís diaspora and itís musical traditions (not to mention the great Pop thatís come out of the former British West Africa). For the most part the music hasnít been groundbreaking enough to gain traction as...
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...
So apparently this is not news to anyone (first reported by UK papers in the mid 90s or something...), but representatives for the (amazing) band Spirit are officially suing Led Zeppelin for ripping...
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...
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.
