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.
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...
ok - obviously a difficult thread to start without inviting spam or self-promotion - neither of which will be tolerated.
the rule is this:
1) recommend either a mix on youtube, a youtube playlist, a spotify playlist, a soundcloud, mixcloud mix or direct download (you get the idea - other...
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...
Songs, or bits of songs, where studio techniques contribute something completely new to the sound, rather then just enhancing it.
Obviously in in the last three decades it's become increasingly difficult to distinguish between the 'studio' (or DAW) and the traditional notion of an instrument,...
Tracks by artists that are surprisingly different from their usual output or the style they've come to be known for.
Bootsy Collins- Preview Side Too
A far cry from the squelching cartoon funk typically associated with Bootsy.
the ones i'm loving right now are
john legend-used to love you
mario-let me love you
all gorgeous songs, i might get that akon album, has anyone heard it?
REAL hip-hop ONLY
GUNPLAY ON FEEL IT IN THE AIR
rachel wallace's "tell me why" - COME ON THAT'D BE GREAT!!!
I'm looking for genres/sub-genres that have been pioneered in the 2010's.
So far I've got:
- Deep Tech
- Jackin House
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...
OK, put this question out on ILM too, but thought I'd pick the brains of the distinguished and knowledgable people here too...
I'm off to Berlin this weekend, and would love to know some cool places to hang out - clubs, bars, whatever. As for the musical context, very much into Kompakt, Get...
...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.
Currently a bit bored with the music I own, need to liven things up with some new artists/tunes. Any genre, new or old.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
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 was reading this Guardian article (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/nov/06/reclusive-french-rap-duo-shun-record-deal-shoot-to-top-itunes-chart) and was wondering if you all had some non-English rap favourites as well. Could be any language I guess. Or is everybody here from either the UK or...
Classic Plastikman set
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...
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 just got this swell compilation called Our Man in Rome, a set of scores and songs from the 1960s Italian spy movie cycle. Itís a prequel to the brilliant Sexy Voices CD which I got ten years ago from the sadly deceased Movie Grooves website and which could often be heard wafting through the...
The last few years have seen a number of underground music scenes cropping up from Africa, itís diaspora and itís musical traditions (not to mention the great Pop thatís come out of the former British West Africa). For the most part the music hasnít been groundbreaking enough to gain traction as...
not sure if there are many dylan fans on dissensus, just curious really.
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...
ok so we had the great 2 step thread, and I thought it'd be good to have an accompanying thread about 4x4, UK or US.
so, what are your tips? obscure or otherwise...
Tinchy killed Ice Rink.
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...
"NASTY or Roll Deep needs it's own thread, really, if it hasn't existed before. "
Here it is.
Roll Deep did some heinous crimes on grime music (In At The Deep End, encouraging people like Syer Bars and Discarda) but I prefer them.
Wiley, Dizzee, Flow Dan, Riko, Trim, Scratchy, Roachee,...

NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH UK BASS
This stuffís been going for a couple of years now, but I never thought to give it its own thread because Iíd confused it with Jackin (as had a number of Dissensians, youtube DJís and the curators of Certified Jackin). On reflection however I think Jackin is...
