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...
REAL hip-hop ONLY
GUNPLAY ON FEEL IT IN THE AIR
well - you know me for a terrible music snob - but credit where credit is due
the man caribou/manitoba - i don't have any of his records bar a remix he did of the junior boys at nick K's behest (may god rest his soul)
but i've seen he's a pretty good DJ
and if you have time on your hands...
a 1000 +1 song playlist centred around London and it's musical culture including, right at the end, important and righteous documents concerning the birth of a distinctive UK MC culture with its roots in soundsystems like...
Dubplate Boris. Supa D. Apple. Funky Taffa. and other Rinse DJs. Wigman (?). It's growing and changing. UK house: the new UK garage?
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...
best thing he's done since "person pitch"
actually i thought he'd blown it because tomboy was weak
and because young prayer was poor i thought - maybe PP was just a flash in the pan
sure he's shown promise - all his Animal collective contributions are their highlights
not sure if there are many dylan fans on dissensus, just curious really.
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...
im looking through this and smiling at photos, well that's my friday afternoon sorted out
I've been listening to loads of hip hop again lately after a long time off. Really enjoying rediscovering it all again and being impressed by Lil B, Kendrick Lamar, the new e40 and the like. Am really feeling it, but have to ask where's the homegrown talent at? The last UK MCs who blew me away were...
I go on other music boards - mainly those aimed at psychedelia and the like - and one of the things that's quite fun is when DJ Shadow or Andy Votel or whatever puts out a mix and the hive mind tries to ID the tracks one by one.
So, I enjoyed this set and I hardly recognise anything - I know it's...
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 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...
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 at my moms, looking at 3000 garage 12's thinking if I could fit them in my new flat and then finding most of the new music I could get in FLAC
It also died when I played a ten year old garage track which I played a lot on pirate and now it sounds CRAP
I am now waiting for my CDs to decay
do you knoe any? i dont know a thing about 90s house. im doing some detective work. having a root through prescription back catalogue on youtube.
...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.
(old) quite moving interview with pete waterman
the amazing thing is a really random internet oddity - one comment at the bottom from susan cadogan!!!
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...
do you ever worry about this? london has had a great run. but from afar i cant help worrying that its sputtering to a halt. im not sur its about to go as shit as new york but it suffers from a lot of th same problems id imagine. genuflecting to a mythos, stupid rents, wowsers, overezalous policing,...
i want to get a thread going of very very powerful very aggressive rap music mostly about guns.it cant just be belligernece in the lyrics the music also has to be very bombastic and weighty. i want to start with MOP cos they are the gods of aggressive rap
no one everr said the words GUNZZZ with so...
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...
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
I wanted to draw people's attention to a project I'm doing with some friends about modern "tribal" music in Ethiopia. We've just launched our website at
and it has tons of clips, photos, text, interviews etc. etc. This is only a tiny part of the massive recording...
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...
Obviously this might be a sensitive topic as many of you have your own blogs / contribute your own articles but I feel that as a whole, good / decent music journalism is practically non-existent. I've seen it been discussed to a degree in individual genre topics but I feel it needs its own thread....
I've been feeling a little nostalgic lately.
My finds so far..

this story is nuts, an already-difficult business apparently crushed by the financial industry.
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.
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
if i slewed you i would never mention your face
I'M A DEFENDER OF YOUR FACE
i aint got a winnie the pooh scarf as yet
but i'm getting one
Who first said Dibby Dibby and where does it come from? I remember it from Dibby Dibby Girl, was it there ?

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...
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?
Might need to be of a certain age to fully relate, this struck a chord with me.
13th June at The Spitz.

Ariel starts circa 10.30pm

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.
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,
