  7. Litefeet/Lite Feet

    100 BPM, 808, crunk beats with funky, syncopated rhythmic stabs of samples (mainly vocals). The effect of these samples tends to be, as I said, funkiness rather headfuckery. Short documentaries: https://youtu.be/Oj2wok72jQ8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAfqPGhAZms These youtube...

  9. Wierdo Music

    It’s a term Luka’s used to describe a lot of the stuff I post, so maybe he would be so kind as to give us a proper definition. In the meantime I’d say it’s any Dance or “Urban” music you’d like to post that’s a little avante-guard or left-field and doesn’t quite fit into other threads.

    Really into some of her music. As a musical (and indeed general) ignoramus I'm not sure where this fits into the current landscape. I stumbled across her through an ILX Spotify playlist.
