Post-Jackin/Dark 4x4 revival/Speed Garage with a sheen/Boring Bassy House music: however you want to look at it this sound is everywhere. Want to get the ball rolling on this thread for this year as I think it's time to retire the Jackin thread. As well summarised by Datwun in his end of year...
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 like records with really heavy fuzz on them. Here are a couple I bought recently, can you recommend me some more
Dunno why that first one won't embed, I've tried three times.
im looking through this and smiling at photos, well that's my friday afternoon sorted out
is it ok nowadays to say you like muslimgauze? some of the recent reissues are pretty decent, "drugsherpa" in particular has a real shackleton vibe, 20-years ahead of his time. he took some harsh anti-israeli positions, but does that matter?
the topic has been discussed here on occasion,...
what are peoples thoughts on here of him? I think he's fucking sick. Listened to one of his ustream shows last week and I thoroughly enjoyed it... he even dropped some grime too.
His two albums to date Onandon and Foma are both good, i'm always comparing both works because its interesting to see...
off the conflict dvd with the crazy and dizzee clash
Done a bit of searching but can't find any online. anyone know where they might be uploaded?
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...
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'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.
Sorority of the Spectacle - Situationist girl pop
Comic Tones for Mental Frailty - Sun Ra comedy act
The Male Gayz - art school queer punk
LOLzepam - ironic shoegaze
* If you use one of these and make money I get a cut :p
"in the sublime the filth, in the filth the sublime" (you're advised now).
ok, some italo disco comps suggestions for the curious; '80 italo disco made in italy, even if they sing in (funny) english and this stuff was mostly intended for export (germany and chicago and japan being the most...
Easy as it would be to blow a few hundred quid if you had it. A flick though boomkat can be fairly grim. The last decade has thrown up a lot of parallels in that where previously the MC came to dominate, it's now the producer. You can count on two hands the DJs who blew up on DJing alone and I...
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'd say that on average I spend about three hours a day during the week and about six hours a day at the weekend. On weekday mornings I'll listen to a vinyl single or two when I'm getting ready for work (Man On A String parts 1 and 2 by Shackleton this morning). I normally cycle into work but if I...
can anyone ID this glitchy C60 rip??? originally picked up in ethiopia with rewch in about 94/95,
& track 4
are particularly ruff psychedelic jams...
roha band perhaps? or meybe not even ethiopian??
i never heard anything quite like it
Band name etymologies:
probably not necessarily obscure but kind of interesting.
what is a showerman/showerface anyway?
i know jammer's one, and so is maximus, but why?
6 years since his debut and 5 since untrue how do people reckon they have held up?
I still love a few tracks but I don't really hold them in as high regard as I used too.
I assumed at the time that years on that they would still sound fresh in a similar fashion to how the Illmatic does for me...
2013 was best year in a long time imo. Apartment have some more nice bits lined up
This should be in the nerd credibility thread, definitely, but what is the difference between house and techno? Mad to be even asking in public...
Some of my favourite rap tunes of this year have been Future-aping auto-tune tunes like the following:
And obviously the king himself keeps doing it best
The first chapter of my proposed trilogy of short, music based programmes, entitled "Brumdemoters", is now available to watch here:
The footage for the second instalment will be captured at the City Tavern gig (in Birmingham) next week (Fri 28th Feb).
The third will be filmed in the...
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...
So....I've really been getting in to a lot of this stuff lately, and I'm very psyched about all the blogs that seem to have arisen out of nowhere and who have been shedding light on this kind of music. I used to use a site called tecnoramba which was amazing for finding loads of mp3s but that seems...
...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.
i was wondering if there are any good tips on what to check out apart from the usual dubstep allstars-samplers and stuff like burial?
I'd be happy for any good recommendations or news...
cheers from karlsruhe, germany,
wtf happened there? :eek:
I saw actress Dj at the the recent no pain in pop event Peckham, I asked him that awkward question of what equipment he uses/d for live and producing and of course he wasn't gonna give the game the away.
I was just wondering if you guys had any ideas? No plugins :rolleyes:...
This is doing the rounds a lot at the minute (no doubt in half because Boomkat are promoting it so mercilessly) but i'm enjoying a lot of the sort of twisted amalgams that're popping up. A lot of it is channelling Bunker/Unit Moebius, Downwards fucked-uppery, but often the best stuff is...
I heard that the night club Niche had re-opened after being shut down a few years ago. Has anyone been?

ok, i'll try.
i'm going the way some people seem to go recently: dubstep->grime->garage->jungle->hardcore. harcore continuum basically.
sadly hardcore/early jungle is not something widely discussed nowadays, so it's hard to get into it.
what were the classics, the milestones, the avantgarde...
feel out of touch
With the phletora of bass & house, bassline, shuffing, disco etc threads going on recently, I like the general sound of each, but one thing that puts me off regularly when going on a random listening spree is the tendency of most to be rather cheesy (disco) and/or formulaic...
this could catch on.
this is on the same label as deadboy; sounds a bit kitsch to me, but im sure someone will like it.
like most everyone i gave up on this for about 10 years.
But a month ago i heard some new tunes and was like OK,
maybe there can be new life.
However The much conjectured Juke influence has not made itself felt in DnB much, if at all? and of course the vast majority of "liquid" and "neuro"...
c'mon theres been 3 superb DJ Q mixes in the last month
Moony - Out Of My Mind
AlunaGeorge - Attracting Flies
Sam Smith - Lay Me Down
Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
DJ Q - Big
Right, this is a completely pathetic request post. I'm wondering if anyone knows the artist and title of the following mystery tracks, which I will now describe to you. If you can help (also any info on whether they made it on to CD would be ace!) I will buy you a drink.
1) dub version of Dawn...
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...
