I'm really feeling a kind of EBM sorta sound at the moment. At least, it's what I think of when I say EBM. It's the pulsing, almost kinda trancey stuff - I don't want any gothic lyrics or stupid shouting or cheesey melodies, just things that sound like the ones I've found so far - which isn't...
Personally I don't think 2014 has been a great year musically so I've been listening to mostly older stuff. I have 'discovered' PiL and Arthur Russell and have been loving 'em. Also been listening to a lot of stuff by The Fall, Can, Drexciya and DJ Sprinkles
Is there anybody who admires jazz?
I think it's kind of music which not everybody understand but lots of people like.
Which doers you like most?
im looking through this and smiling at photos, well that's my friday afternoon sorted out
Might need to be of a certain age to fully relate, this struck a chord with me.
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...
13th June at The Spitz.
Doors 7pm, Two Support Acts.
Ariel starts circa 10.30pm
Paying Guest List (you can reserve tickets but have to pay for them on the door) Call 020 7392 9032.
When it comes to 2Step amongst music fans there's quite alot of skimming which passes for erudition. The canons of Ardkore, Drum and Bass and Grime are actually pretty exhaustive. Ardkore especially is known very deeply. I'd like to see the blind alleys of 2Step explored a little better.
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 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 listen to a load of pop radio with my children - i really enjoy it and because i'm doing it with them i guess i switch off in a critical sense. i do love stuff like katy perry for instance - but i think it's revealing that when i'm alone i never listen to it. i guess it's a family/communal thing...
Yes, I'm fishing again :D ... I have a feeling that I should be listening to some concréte (or acousmatique etc). I really haven't delved at all, to tell the truth - its such a self-contained and forbidding world that I'm not sure where to start. Parmegiani keeps coming up, and what I've been able...
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
yes I'm finally going to see the arkestra, has anyone else seen them lately? has there been a sun ra thread before, whats your favourite record, at the moment mine is Holiday For Soul Dance........
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
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...
...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'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.
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...
Just stumbled upon this through random youtube listening at work and found it odd that I never saw it mentioned anywhere, for the project is rather great & support worthy, as well as there being some real gems.
So yea, people with blogs that peoples read, blog on if you like, looks like they could...
suppose many on Dissensus will have heard Whitehouse by now.
If there's one thing i'm sure of it's that everone who has heard them will have an opinion.
I've never heard them described as ''okay''.
i think i have been told this before with great authority by martin clark. but now have forgotten what he said - and can't find a record of the conversation.
there was a very early dizzy rascal tune - before i luv u - it never made it past a dub-plate - that was particularly magical.
Anyone else read this? History of black music scenes in London from about 1920 to the present, written by That Bloke Who Wrote Bass Culture.
I generally found it pretty interesting - there's a bit of a cosy, celebratory vibe to the whole thing, but there's loads of stuff about scenes that I knew...
i got really weary of the new wave of african music reissues in about 2001 - barring struts Nigeria 70 the first batch were really shit - terrible "the shrine" comp by ocho - really poor "oulelele" and "racubah" comps.
so i guess i thought it was all over and done with. that things couldn't be...
Mindstorm's new Big Room/Progressive House epic "Sex, Drugs And Rock & Roll" is in stores now and available through Beatport!
Fans of the Martin Garrix, Hardwell, Afrojack, and Nicky Romero sounds will find this release to be an instant favorite. Preview and purchase the release below!
Dissensi, I need your expertise. I'm doing a short list for work tomorrow with the theme of UK garage with horror samples/names etc. Ideally pre grime.
KMA - Cape Fear
El-B - Buck N Bury
Some tune called 'Michaels Theme' which samples Halloween
Other possibilities include...
he is a famous dissensus contributor. he doesnt eat vegetables.
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.
I thought there was a thread on this, but I can't find it...Writing a coupla pages on it for one of the mags...Got a buncha records, downloads, fairly up to date with more recent developments, read the Joey Negro thing, got the book, seen a coupla documentaries & tmottgogo....Anything I might be...
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?
