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
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...
There's MASSES of this out there at the moment. My favourite mix at the moment is

but there are loads on soundcloud. Masses of filesharing on whatsapp and datafile and...
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...
cos i'm on a prince kick recently. i'm assuming everyone here likes prince right?
i haven't decided myself yet cos i want to revisit some stuff (especially sign o the times which i always thought was a bit overrated), but definitely leaning towards early minimal funk/new wave filthy era - dirty...
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...
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...
First with a tune from 2015. Keep up. But I love this tune. Like, really, really like it. Like, really like it.

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...
Seems to be pretty set in stone now that Vinyl in clubs is dying out. Pretty tragic that people like Youngsta had to switch just cos clubs can't be bothered to look after turntables.
Also CDJ mixes can sound so machine-like sometimes, can hear them a mile off.
Does anyone know why clubs have...
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?
So apparently this is not news to anyone (first reported by UK papers in the mid 90s or something...), but representatives for the (amazing) band Spirit are officially suing Led Zeppelin for ripping...
I've scanned this article while at work so I've not ascertained to what extent it's a load of cobblers, but it interests me to consider if this phenomenon (if such a phenomenon exists) has had...
I am planning to save some of my ill-gotten gains up over the next few months to buy some speakers.
Currently, I have some 200 quid monitors that were useful for production but aren't that great for listening to music on. My housemate has some KRK 8s which seem fantastic for listening to music...
I LOVE MUSIC DISCUSSES JUNGLE
It couldn't survive, thank christ. The rhythmic parameters of the genres were so small that the entire collected body of jungle could be summed up on a 'jungle setting' on a Casio. "Renegade Snares" is all I ever needed, personally.
― dave q, Friday, 31 August...
i read this by mr reynolds (to use the NY times' quaintly formal style sheet):
lots of observations, though still unsure what his actual opinion of the new record is (other than it being a...
100 BPM, 808, crunk beats with funky, syncopated rhythmic stabs of samples (mainly vocals). The effect of these samples tends to be, as I said, funkiness rather headfuckery.
Dubplate Boris. Supa D. Apple. Funky Taffa. and other Rinse DJs. Wigman (?). It's growing and changing. UK house: the new UK garage?
From what I can tell Flex combines dancehall samples and rhythms with Litefeet/ Jersey Club-style sample snippets.
anyone had any experience with these?

I've only got one. My mate showed me it today. It's a time capsule. Only real bum note is a few limp bizkits
about the tunes of people who've djed for a while but have no records? what do they sound like?
A thread to discuss the current Drake-induced phenomenon of Americans having heard of Skepta/Crazy Cousinz possibly being persuaded into making funky again.
Is it a coming of age, a tipping point, a much deserved and delayed coronation? Or is it just Drakeula looking for a new angle for his...
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'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.
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...
One of those annoying threads where no one really says anything but instead fills every post with youtube embeds so it takes ages to load.
I thought we needed one for drone.
Think of all the lives rock 'n' roll has fucked up through dashed dreams of stardom, de rigeur drug addictions, its grotesque portrial of "chicks", its ineffectual efforts to stick it to "the man", its racist wholesale plunder of the blues, the idea that positive social change can come from shouty,...
I'm going to cyprus on saturday.
I've been put in charge of securing appropriate poolside music.
I have spotify, but would also appreciate summery mixes.
I've tried google and a load of horrible cafe del mar style shit comes up.
Like that gucci mayn one for example. Weve all seen the pre fame biggie one already, but that sort of thing please xxx thanx
is this kind of thing just described as jazz, or is there some kind of definition/sub genre? would love to find more stuff similar but dont know where to start! any recommendations would be lovely
credit to ben ufo for playing it on rinse btw
OG grime mc from east ham. was on radio with petchy, spyro etc. turned producer few years ago. i know him from school but i hope thats not clouding my judgement
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 would go for Enter the Wu-Tang. Love that album
Please someone tell me more about this. It's amazing.

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 post on popbitch about the new r kelly album and wondering about how messy this can actually get.
in rap, there are probably lots of artists who rap about all sorts of nasty behaviour, but in real life, might actually...
Strikes me as odd that there isn't a thread about Kanye already on here (perhaps there is and my search function ain't shit). 'Yeezus' is topping all of the end of year polls for music critics, and not a day goes by that I don't see something about Kanye beating up paparazzi, or chucking hecklers...

would very much like to know it
I was on youtube looking at old techno and came to Hot on the Wheels then some other TG, Coil and somehow got to this then to this by Current 93
