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...
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...
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...
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
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!

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...
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.
Northern style that a lot of bassline dj's also play or have switched to.
Post any examples / news / mixes.

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...
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.
im looking through this and smiling at photos, well that's my friday afternoon sorted out
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...
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...
Dubplate Boris. Supa D. Apple. Funky Taffa. and other Rinse DJs. Wigman (?). It's growing and changing. UK house: the new UK garage?
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
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
the darius gaiden soundtrack is great isn't it?

Youtube has become the primary way for me to find old but new-to-me music that I would otherwise have no way of ever knowing about. Being pretty young, this kind of stuff was being made when I was just a toddler. Here's a handful I've found thanks to the tube:
Starpoint - Object Of My Desire...
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....
Disclaimer: I got put onto a lot of this by Elite Gymnastics mixes, (which somehow they've turned into a Pitchfork article) but holy shit... K-Pop is on some other shit these days.
Granted, a majority of the production isn't anything 'inventive', it's the same shlock pouring out of the West......
i once lived for a year in an apartment complex, a brutalist social housing thing built in the 1960s. for all its desolation it was cheap and i was treated to a spectacular view of airplanes leaving the airport in the distance, very large windows that bled into the city. i was engulfed by the night...
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.
ok, i'll try.
i'm going the way some people seem to go recently: dubstep->grime->garage->jungle->hardcore. harcore continuum basically.
sadly hardcore/early jungle is not something widely discussed nowadays, so it's hard to get into it.
what were the classics, the milestones, the avantgarde...
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...
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''.
feel out of touch
Fact did a 100 best 70s albums list recently and they went for 20 Jazz Funk Greats. It's a tough choice but I think I would have to go for The Man Machine
Anyone else a fan? At first I thought it was the worst thing I'd ever heard. But I kept wanting to hear it again. Now I think it's genius. Bits of The Fall, John Cooper Clarke, The Streets, Half Man Half Biscuit and - weirdest of all - Le Tigre.
