REAL hip-hop ONLY
GUNPLAY ON FEEL IT IN THE AIR
What's in it?
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.

Dubplate Boris. Supa D. Apple. Funky Taffa. and other Rinse DJs. Wigman (?). It's growing and changing. UK house: the new UK garage?
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...

best rock book this year
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...
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...
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...
if i slewed you i would never mention your face

i aint got a winnie the pooh scarf as yet

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...
worst thing ever
hey anyone seen joe muggs letter in the wire, bringing into question the whole reynolds numm thing?
well argued i think.
In which we share strange, inept or exploito gems from the disco era:

im looking through this and smiling at photos, well that's my friday afternoon sorted out
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
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...
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...
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, 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 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...
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.
Gonna ask something, maybe it's cheeky I dunno, I hope it's mutually advantageous. But I've got a couple of good gigs coming up; Saturday playing at the Bad Vibes Festival supporting Martin Rev and Faust and in a couple of weeks have a couple of spots in Germany including one at the much-feted...
i've always known i don't have a very sophisticated ear, that other people hear a whole lot more in music than i do, reynolds recent comments on the beatles-
'it's weird listening to them and hearing them now, with trained fan/critic type ears now, as a band, with the bassist doing this'n'that,...
American Ballads & Folk Songs - John A. Lomax
Our Singing Country A Second Volume Of American Ballads And Folk Songs - John A. Lomax
Might need to be of a certain age to fully relate, this struck a chord with me.
I've seen few other threads talking about booty, ghettotech and juke. But there is this mindblowing street culture in chicago based on footworking and this abstract, dark and fucked up version of juke.

I happened across the video for Kano's new song today on YouTube and it provoked me into briefly skimming his catalogue. This, in turn, has provoked me into starting this thread, in which poor ignorants such as myself will ask the forum to give them a run down of the best songs/albums/videos/live...
Does anyone have any experience with Pirate Radio??
Do you have any interesting tales?? Do you listen, if so what do you notice/like/hate??
Been on a few for a while, it would be nice to hear what you guys think. Where they are heading??
i am looking for the visual side of uk hardcore 92-93.
