REAL hip-hop ONLY
GUNPLAY ON FEEL IT IN THE AIR
I really hope he takes this to its logical conclusion, and that it's not just a good title for an album.
Like, y'know "the subjective concept of all cognition/is nothing but a syllogism". He could...
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...
Tinchy killed Ice Rink.
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...
I heard in the past Konono had visa problems, and of course there was that accusation that Papa Wemba was a people-smuggler?
One of those annoying threads where no one really says anything but instead fills every post with youtube embeds so it takes ages to load.
I thought we needed one for drone.
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...
Playlists are also acceptable.
Inspired to make this thread by coming across lists compiled by rateyourmusic user ''diction'' today: http://rateyourmusic.com/~diction
He has listed the top albums in Hip-Hop year by year (not sure where up to but at least 1995), with explanations of why he...
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 was just listening to Flow Motion by Can - and rather enjoying it! I also have a penchant for the latter-day Jonathan Richman albums...
Anyone else out there have favourite albums made by artists in the autumn years of their careers, when they were generally considered to be past their best?
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 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...
I would go for Enter the Wu-Tang. Love that album
Don't think that there is a thread on this yet. I was agnostic about the first track I heard from her but this one is amazing. The video, where stoned yet perfect automatons re-enact Wild at Heart, complements the Chris Isaak meets Portishead music perfectly. I can't remember the last time that...
Better late than never. I'm going to get into them starting from today.
just as he seems to be taking over other threads a bit too much.
i dont care for his forced swearing/attempts at playing a hardman, but im not really bothered if he has a ghostwriter, or if he didnt pay his dues... i think people who suggest that have other reasons to hate drake, but are just...
ive never been a big rolling stones fan, but find listening to their live stuff weirdly enjoyable (i think its from first hearing midnight rambler on one of their greatest hits comps)
talking heads - never really been that into the albums beyond the singles, but a youtube video of one of their...
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 love listening to music alone but there's really nothing that beats seeing a tune go off in a crowd (the only thing that would top this is presumably playing the tune yourself). I want to be fed your happy memories through my computer screen and remember why I got into dance music in the first...
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.
im looking through this and smiling at photos, well that's my friday afternoon sorted out
How much is this a scene? anyone got any recommendations?
I just listened to a Jubilee playlist of it after having it open as a tab for 3 months:
The first couple songs I don't rate but after that it's pretty much fire. I...

Anyone else a fan? At first I thought it was the worst thing I'd ever heard. But I kept wanting to hear it again. Now I think it's genius. Bits of The Fall, John Cooper Clarke, The Streets, Half Man Half Biscuit and - weirdest of all - Le Tigre.
Hello friends and fans of Axe fm! Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this... I'm working with Rhymestein, trying to find people who would be interested in contributing to an axe fm tribute CD and final axefm show in Nov/Dec 2015. All the funds raised will go to Pablo's family. For those...
Apropos of nothing, I just really like the story :
i found some new music that excited me
ignored all the kuedo stuff til now for some reason as i thought it was pale and insipid post dubstep/nu trip hop stuff (not sure why) but instead it is actually like hip hop beats i love and old 70s synth...
As I mentioned in the London dying thread, I saw this top 25 clubs in Europe (mainland Europe, not including the UK) in the Guardian recently
And I will look for the UK follow up soon but I was surprised by the number of people in the...
this is something i need to get off my chest. 4/4 kicks are wrong.
listening to planet rock last night it has the synth and drum machine that all the techno guys used but with, to my ears, a more interesting rhythm.
there's a huge division in electronic music between 4/4 and non
for the stuff that doesnt really fit into the other thread...
been listening to the new pete rock album quite a bit lately - exactly what you would expect it to sound like, but brilliantly, and a lot better than the first volume of petestrumentals, which was pretty much samey headnodders from...
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...
Biggest sound of rap/pop/R&B in the last 5 years, and I figured fuck it, dissensus needs a thread. After all, Pandiculate was asking me a bit in the rap thread about it, but every time I try to start it gets me overwhelmed with trying to be a completist since its a genuine scene and not just "DJ...
Is this a bargain, or an annoying rip-off?
I'm occasionally tempted to pay the £55 for 3 months so I can gorge on early Penman and Morley album reviews. But...£55?? I could buy a bunch of books for that.
