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...
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...
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.
Dubplate Boris. Supa D. Apple. Funky Taffa. and other Rinse DJs. Wigman (?). It's growing and changing. UK house: the new UK garage?
Northern style that a lot of bassline dj's also play or have switched to.
Post any examples / news / mixes.

so chris watson finally gets the vinyl treatment. i've been praying for this after many moons!.:cool:
i'm finding it difficult to bother listening to strictly human generated microsound, is there anyone else out there that should be checked out within the natural recording world?
feel out of touch
Don't think that there is a thread on this yet. I was agnostic about the first track I heard from her but this one is amazing. The video, where stoned yet perfect automatons re-enact Wild at Heart, complements the Chris Isaak meets Portishead music perfectly. I can't remember the last time that...
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...
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...
The "Bop" is a dance which people from Chicago have been doing since Be-Bop in the 1950's, but nowadays kids are doing it to crazy sped-up trap music with autotuned vocals and thoroughly Disney/Nintendo-esque melodies.
They also do it to normal rap music as you can see here. This guy's...
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...
Fuck me........ I saw this fella... maybe a year and a half or more ago, playing hyphy records before Lory D. he was brilliant. i totally forgot his name and in the mean time heard the music he has been putting out and thought it was great. Only recently did someone make me realise that the two...
Making the assumption that this doesn't already exist somewhere here and knowing that there are some "world" music heads;
great site, I have no idea what any of this stuff I'm listening to is at all and I don't really care. just got put onto this by a...
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...
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.
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...
are a group i have always previously dismissed because of certain connotations- 'magick', wire articles every bloody month, the misapprehension that there is anything interesting about charles manson, david bloody keenan- apart from being mildly intrigued by the fact that they'd used a Soviet ANS...
I am guilty of employing my fair share of cliches in music reviews so this isn't no muthafuckin' witch-hunt but I'm curious as to which analogies/descriptions/general phrases you think pop up far too often in music journalism? This should be (notionally) interesting as people on dissensus are...
what is a showerman/showerface anyway?
i know jammer's one, and so is maximus, but why?
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...
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!
01 - 02 - 07 -...
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...
Does anyone know what happened to Becoming Real, I kinda liked his tunes and he seemed to have disappeared or something? Did he stop producing?
c'mon theres been 3 superb DJ Q mixes in the last month
Moony - Out Of My Mind
AlunaGeorge - Attracting Flies
Sam Smith - Lay Me Down
Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
DJ Q - Big
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...
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...
...who are the artists who can do no wrong in the eyes of music journalists?
a tell tale sign is when every new album is hailed as 'a return to form':
a couple of starters: the Fall, Nick Cave
In the last year I've become obsessed with a semi-obscure unreleased song by SWV called ''Mystery''.
Even though you can tell that it hasn't been properly mixed down and to a lot of people it might sound like a pretty MOR or even saccharine love song, I absolutely love the harmonies and...
i've bee saying this for ages, on this forum too, meeting with considerable objection. Thanks to David Toop for saying it during his recent lectures, and Tony Herrington for following up in the pages of The Wire:
techno didn't emerge from tabula rasa, and Kraftwerk should be seen as firmly...
I wish I could pick an actual track but instead for me it has to be the sound of hope fleeing from my skull as I try to find any redeeming feature of the loop techno I decided to preview on boomkat as I trudge through it's latest releases. Sometimes I wish for the signature boomkat beep to pierce...
Find myself listening to this more than any other station for the last two year or so.
Not a bad selector on there playing interesting music, great vibe that can easily can put it up to the all-star cast over on rinse.
What do ye think?
Lots of hoopla lately about his 100th birthday. I've never investigated Sun Ra, back catalog is too overwhelming...any suggestions of a few good albums to track down? I'm less interested in the noisy/free jazz stuff, more into the quieter/cooler albums. Appreciate the help.
Did you know that Stockhausen only had half a brain?
(Divided into Right and Left quarters)
I've been saying this for ages but nobody takes me seriously.
like most everyone i gave up on this for about 10 years.
But a month ago i heard some new tunes and was like OK,
maybe there can be new life.
However The much conjectured Juke influence has not made itself felt in DnB much, if at all? and of course the vast majority of "liquid" and "neuro"...
