im looking through this and smiling at photos, well that's my friday afternoon sorted out
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...
Yeah you got it it's me! Publishers are very interested and of course we are hoping to start a bidding war. It's a really big thing for me, I've never had an opportunity like this before so I hope you will all be rooting for me
im preoccupied by the idea of the gatekeeper at the moment. how do scenes mirror society? what is the relationship between merit and attainment? to what extent is a scene merely a social circle? why meridian over total package?
Dan Hancock on afrobeats (not afrobeat). I was really into Ice Prince "Oleku" last year but admit I just figured an African act had finally found a way through the major label channels.
Might need to be of a certain age to fully relate, this struck a chord with me.
been encountering lots of these type sounds... some of it can be described as abstract r'n'b blog-bass euphoric twerk-trance moody digital EDM bounce-trap with a bit of wobble, loads of drunk synths and micro-programming.
some of it can be interesting or even good. in theory. Fatima Al Qadiri...
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...
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 was only listening to hardcore/jungle at this time but i've been listening to a few hiphop albums from the same period and i really like the style. i don't know that much about it though so i thought i could get some reccomendations. don't mention anything from 94 cos i've listenined to every...
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,
what is a showerman/showerface anyway?
i know jammer's one, and so is maximus, but why?
It's not underground, I think quite mainstream, I heard one one rinse a lot called infinite daps and my mate had a stag do in amsterdam and we went to a club it was mostly r&b and some Dutch weird stuff and tunes like that infinite daps, like a bit comedy but also sophisticated and expensive...
...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.
Dazed is telling the story of Sheffield Bassline Airing on Channel 4 this Autumn.
Today we need your help, we're looking for Bassline fans with, Bassline CD collections and flyers from the beginning of the scene.
Have any Bassline memorabilia? Know anyone who does? Let us know:...
Thought I'd kick-start this thread (in September!) with a list of things I've been feeling this year, or at least things that I've blogged about.
King Louie - God
King Los - Woke Up Like This
Young Thug - Eww
Chinx Drugz - Knew That
Northern style that a lot of bassline dj's also play or have switched to.
Post any examples / news / mixes.

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
Dubplate Boris. Supa D. Apple. Funky Taffa. and other Rinse DJs. Wigman (?). It's growing and changing. UK house: the new UK garage?
a while back I inhereted several cds' worth of interesting and completely unlabelled music. I've made my way through quite a bit of it but a few dozen tunes remain mysteries. thought I'd try posting them up for your identifying pleasure. I appreciate any insight you can provide!
13 - 15 - 23 -...
and my brother's too.
the head fucking drone of digeridoo, the wide-eyed utopia of selected ambient works I, the vast inner planes of selected ambient works II. a soundtrack to a life of intense love, thought, exploration, escapism, the glimpse of possibilities that in hindsight were a mirage....
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...
Now this guy is something else right? I'm not usually that excited about music because there's so much of it and so little that really stands out but Arca is something new and something alien that strikes me in a way that few artists do.
They premiered one of his tracks of his forthcoming album...
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...
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.
.. just some geezer slowing it down on his record player. no chops.
sounds nice though
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...
doesn anyone know much about this? i'm sure it only started making an appearance on the pirates in about 95, 96. is this right? i couldn't get into it at first but then the mad energy took control and i used to enjoy the soca shows on stations like klymaxx etc. all i can remember though is the name...
I was introduced to Reggae via John Eden's and Paul Meme's fantastic mixes! Now I would like to listen to more Dancehall/Reggae mixes by other people. I have been to several Legendary Sound Clashes and have bought CDs from the shows unfortunately the recordings are atrocious. no...
in light of that dude/him/shim/im not sure winning the Mercury last night I thought I'll bring up a old winner (I think).....
I was listening to it today nodding my head severly but then wondered at some tracks whether they had aged well cos I know some peeps be looking pon this LP as a...
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 would go for Enter the Wu-Tang. Love that album
