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...
Northern style that a lot of bassline dj's also play or have switched to.
Post any examples / news / mixes.

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...
Here's a couple of awesome mixes to start the year off with - one from Levon Vincent - http://www.littlewhiteearbuds.com/podcast/lwe-podcast-149-levon-vincent/
01. Mark Enestus, “Meets BBC”
02. Shifted, “Trouble”
03. Ryo Murakami, “Night Dew”
04. Vtothed, “NYE Space Session”
...have made a strange new pop video - Rulerfueller -
Worth a look (although I would say that, wouldn't I?)
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...
Big closet Maiden fan. Remember them as a nerd-turd in the 80s, especially 'Run to the hills'. Kinda got into the late 80s metal bands like Metallica (esp. all the albums up to and including 'And justice'), Slayer and Anthrax, then maybe Guns n' Roses.
Are there any Dissensans that loved metal...
This is a thread for mixes showcasing the music that you thought was awesome in 2013. No rules apart from all tracks must have been released this year, obviously
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...
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
My mate runs the Vinyl Pimp record shop in Hackney and he's putting on a fundraising party/raffle to benefit the victims of the recent typhoon in the Philippines.
For the raffle prizes, he's managed to secure vinyl giveaways from a whole load of amazing bass music labels, including Deep Medi...
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...
I've checked and we don't have a dedicated Parmegiani thread.
Listening to Chronos the other day, and WOW that's a good 'un. Very bleepy - for fans of early WARP definitely.
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.
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 need more hip hop in my life folks.
im looking through this and smiling at photos, well that's my friday afternoon sorted out
Blackdown went all in this month, first with his 2012 roundup:
"This section was for me the real heart of 2012 and in truth it’s a flex I’d been long since feeling around for – check my remix of Bias & Gurley “Roll”...
what is a showerman/showerface anyway?
i know jammer's one, and so is maximus, but why?
feel out of touch
So I was complaining in the 'Best of 2011' thread about feyness and twee and whimsy and childishness in music, and several of you agreed, so let's have a complaining thread.
Let's be clear, though: twee isn't automatically bad. I'm quite partial to BMX Bandits and Belle and Sebastian, where twee...
Loving the wonky beats and drones on this - what else sounds like it? Muslimgauze but more fun I suppose. Any tips welcome.
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"...
So we're all underground music geeks here. But what do you say when someone who is not a total nerd about this stuff asks you this, say someone at your work who only listens to daytime radio or whatever
I usually say I like house and techno and that sort of thing
In an effort to amalgamate some of the more disparate threads on here please post Jackin', Post Dubstep, UK Bass, Deep Tech House whatever in here if you like. Seems to be a general shift to this amongst DJs from what I can gather.
Rachel Row - Follow The Step (Justin Martin Remix)...
Yay! Let's have an Indo Jazz thread.
I'm doing a sleeve dump of some of the things I've picked up recently soon.
It's an amazingly fecund quarter actually. Think about the things it has inspired:
La Monte Young. La Monte is simply an aestheticised stripped-back Alice...
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...
This is really fucking funny
Can't work out if he's deliberately echoing Patrick Bateman but I don't think it is deliberate, I think it's real.
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
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.
...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.
Nice idea, wrong execution.
cos the 'best 100 rap albums' are almost all boring.
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...
Seems to be something dance music related brewing in this tempo range. Maybe in the wake of juke and trap / hip hop / crunk stuff. Think a lot of this is interesting, maybe a bit idm-ish at times but a lot of good stuff, good for mixing it up with jungle and hardcore and up the tempos a bit from...
Anyone know of good web or other resources on kwaito? if there's a space with downloads it would be extra nice ... thanks!!
can you identify some reggae for me ta
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,
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.
