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''.
been encountering lots of these type sounds... some of it can be described as abstract r'n'b blog-bass euphoric twerk-trance moody digital EDM bounce-trap with a bit of wobble, loads of drunk synths and micro-programming.
some of it can be interesting or even good. in theory. Fatima Al Qadiri...
cos the 'best 100 rap albums' are almost all boring.
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.
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
Northern style that a lot of bassline dj's also play or have switched to.
Post any examples / news / mixes.

Who are the DJs around nowadays who are capable of blowing your mind or lifting your spirits? I dunno if its just cos I'm as jaded as fuck but I haven't seen that many in recent years who have had that effect.
I'd also like to know who are the best DJs you've ever seen live and maybe even get...
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...
...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.
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...
- untold stop what you're doing remix
- the bells sketch
- Mount Kimbie maybes remix
- harmonimixes of destiny's child, mala, pev and so many more
- R&S vocal album
i've got a very good feeling about this guy!
Mainly house music for me
Today I have been listening to Chez Damier, Omar S, Anthony Naples and Kerri Chandler. And Hazyville by Actress
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...
Dubplate Boris. Supa D. Apple. Funky Taffa. and other Rinse DJs. Wigman (?). It's growing and changing. UK house: the new UK garage?
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.
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
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...
more samples here:
(why won't youtube vid embed??)
Know bugger all about this really, but just been checking out this DJ Sliink guy (via the latest blissblog post, in which he likens it to 'black gabba') and I like it a lot. Chopped vocals, cheeky samples, breakbeats, cool dancing...right up my street and I imagine it will appeal to dissensians...
hiphop and reggae and jungle may have all involve a lot of THC, but i feel like the straight up silliness and just overdosed insanity gets expressed in juke A LOT more... emphatically.
all these SEVERELY weed damaged Tracks that gave up bangin a long long time ago and is just drifting off into...
here's one example...don't know this guy, obviously not a big name, but the answer appears to be "not very much".
anyone link to any decent mixes? its a style of music I'm completely ignorant about.
i'm new too this kind of thing. i'm a uk garage producer/dj i go under the name groove chronicles i'm interested in more feedback regarding peoples thoughts of the whole change in uk garage to grime to dub step etc..
im looking through this and smiling at photos, well that's my friday afternoon sorted out
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...
anyone knows what these tracks (or styles of music, im thinking for some of it there must be quite strong but really obscure scenes that never get in the more 'mainstream' media so i don't know anything about them.. i hope some of you do:) are;
*from 2:44 to 3:05 (i would specially love to know...
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...
Still think house, techno, gabba is lame.
Repeat attempts to dig, pretend to dig, slyly dig music that just goes dum dum dum all nightfor people who don't like music so much as dancin, lol'ing, MDMA, nerding over 12" records, etc, etc. all ending in tragic failure and deep seated feelings of...
Probably best to put these all in one place as the individual threads generally don't last for long.
News article from today: Frankie Knuckles: House pioneer dies aged 59
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...
Right, this is a completely pathetic request post. I'm wondering if anyone knows the artist and title of the following mystery tracks, which I will now describe to you. If you can help (also any info on whether they made it on to CD would be ace!) I will buy you a drink.
1) dub version of Dawn...
There seems to be only one existing thread in the music section on Dissensus with the words 'acid house' in the title started by Woebot going on about Mancunians that lasted about 12 posts so thought i'd start a new one for anything interesting acid house related.
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...
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"...
Anyone know of good web or other resources on kwaito? if there's a space with downloads it would be extra nice ... thanks!!
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...
producers, what's new? post your links up, let's get some feedback moving.. i've been checking out your myspace links as i see them but feeding back is typically gross thread derailment!
i'll start the ball rolling - i do dark, aggressive cinematic beats and themes (see myspace link below).....
Album out next week.
Feels like it's been a long time coming but I'm looking forward to it. Never got fully into the new 130 thing, but they have (he has?) more of a distinct sound.
