Dubplate Boris. Supa D. Apple. Funky Taffa. and other Rinse DJs. Wigman (?). It's growing and changing. UK house: the new UK garage?
First with a tune from 2015. Keep up. But I love this tune. Like, really, really like it. Like, really like it.

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'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.
"NASTY or Roll Deep needs it's own thread, really, if it hasn't existed before. "
Here it is.
Roll Deep did some heinous crimes on grime music (In At The Deep End, encouraging people like Syer Bars and Discarda) but I prefer them.
Wiley, Dizzee, Flow Dan, Riko, Trim, Scratchy, Roachee,...
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.
Strikes me as odd that there isn't a thread about Kanye already on here (perhaps there is and my search function ain't shit). 'Yeezus' is topping all of the end of year polls for music critics, and not a day goes by that I don't see something about Kanye beating up paparazzi, or chucking hecklers...
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.
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...
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 am a big fan of radio and its various modern incarnations. There is a lot of shit talk about people now having everything on demand and 'consumers' wanting to cherry pick the best tunes from an album and all that. In parallel, words like 'curate' have been debased by all sorts of self-important...
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?
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
i read this by mr reynolds (to use the NY times' quaintly formal style sheet):
lots of observations, though still unsure what his actual opinion of the new record is (other than it being a...
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...
though it rends my heart I had to leave out the charlatans.
and the carpets were from oldham before anyone complains...
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...
I'm curious what you people think of this whole thing.
Initially when I started listening to underground/indie hiphop I was pretty dismissive, since I've got my head adjusted I've become fairly interested.
One guy I took an about face on was Sage Francis.
The general consensus on ILM...
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...
Two things I heard on the radio back in the day and have never been able to identify since:
"Good Good Feeling" (?)
Sounded like The Pharcyde. Very laid-back and swingy but with a really gross final verse about torturing people.
"One in the Chamber" (?)
Kinda sounded like Raekwon or...
REAL hip-hop ONLY
GUNPLAY ON FEEL IT IN THE AIR
Brilliant, funny, stupid, sad. Any genre will do, but mine are mainly rock. One or two videos per post pls.
Not a big fan of this tune, or even this era of Young, but definitely the zenith of this particular variant of trailer park rock. He apparently had his personal trainer back stage putting...
i was reading this post on popbitch about the new r kelly album and wondering about how messy this can actually get.
in rap, there are probably lots of artists who rap about all sorts of nasty behaviour, but in real life, might actually...
Who else here is into TRANCE, the greatest genre of all time??
I searched the dissensus threads and none of the titles contained the word "trance", so I decided to start this one...
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...
There's something in the air, I'm seeing a lot of tweets about this. Not solely the gentrification, the bandwagon jumping. What's going on?
Inspired by Crowley slagging off bowies lyrics. No rappers allowed.
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...
Trigger warning: silly hypothetical thread. Alloooow it.
In roughly what year 'should' you have been born to make the most of the period/scene/genre of music you like the most?
Would you opt for 1950, so as to have been 17 in the original Summer of Love? Or skip two decades and be that age...
Seems like a bit of a a golden era at the moment for official releases anyway. Not really sure why, lots of kids I meet seem to be getting in to Fela. Prob helped a bit by Nas sampling Mulatu Astatke, William Onyeabors success, ethnomusicy blogs, and resurgence of digging and vinyl culture.
Artists whose output has pioneered or innovated more than once. These innovations can include whole genres, stylistic flourishes, production techniques, etc.
I’ll kick things off with Miles Davis. His playing with the harmon mute without the stem established a particular timbre of trumpet...
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...
I heard a lot of this in Berlin in cafes/coming out of people's cars etc. and on the whole, it sounds fantastic. But I know absolutely nothing about Turkish music of any kind - pop, traditional or whatever. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks.
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...
Was just wondering if anyone knows if this guy still makes tunes. Think he was affiliated with Vice?
He made the beat for that Slinga/Biggie/2pac tune on Prancehall's mixtape, and then also this:
and the Low-dan, which I can't find online, but the one of soulfood 3 that blackdown wrote...
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...
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...
A mate played out a load of his early tracks at a party the other night, and for the first time (er, like twenty years later) I really GOT the appeal of the Todd sound. It's in those rushing/racing/careering almost tinny drums.
I dug out that LP "To The Batmobile" and have been loving it to the...
