  1. Shuffling / House Music / Cutting Shapes

    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...

  5. What's your favourite album from the 70s?

    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 http://www.factmag.com/2014/07/14/the-100-best-albums-of-the-1970s/

  6. the late night city aesthetic

    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...

  7. Sleaford Mods

    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.

    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...

  15. BOP!

    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...
