My first inaugural CHOON OF THE DAY is
Kate Bush - Watching You Without Me
I have chosen this one cos the bassline is totally fucked. Like a big animal dying, or being disturbed in its sleep.
Plus she's singing like that dwarf in Twin Peaks....
I've spent this morning listening to that Terror Danjah compilation on Planet Mu then roaming youtube looking for my favourite old grime tunes, and then I thought that this forum could really do with a classic youtube grime thread! I'll start -
<object width="425" height="344"><param...
I'm appreciative of Trent Reznor's Fincher soundtracks ('The Social Network' and 'Gone Girl') and I always hear NIN's name bandied about, but I've never listened to them and I'm not sure I should even.
A good jumping off point to talk about Industrial music past, present and future, too,...
What is it ? Is there an absolute definition of it ? Is it strictly a UK thing ?
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...
I wanna know the best jungle tracks. im a teenager in america so i totally missed out on the whole of jungle. Actually i would rather you not tell me the "best" tracks because i don't want to limit myself ie i want to make up my own mind. so just give me a jumping off point.
like this, or this
or like, nitejwel or something
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.
First with a tune from 2015. Keep up. But I love this tune. Like, really, really like it. Like, really like it.

People who've made great contributions to music, yet they haven't seen much popular reverence nor critical appraisal.
Something I've been wondering about for a while. What music is actually psychedelic? I mean, I really like so-called garage-psych but in general I wouldn't really say that I find it psychedelic in any of the usually accepted senses of the word (the wiktionary defintion which seems to fit with my...
right, so, I realize that many Dissensus regulars are may be aghast at the very idea of exercise.
and there is also an old general exercise thread but as the title states this is what music, if any, you fancy while you work out, what works best for you, etc.
when I'm running sometimes I...
And we're off....
Ok, everyone in the world knows who Giggs is, but is anyone else trying to keep up with South London's output at the moment? There's just mixtapes flying like bullets in all directions, it really feels like music-as-drive-by, and round where I live, it's everywhere.
what is a showerman/showerface anyway?
i know jammer's one, and so is maximus, but why?
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...
Are you ready for the bloodclaat jungle techno?!!!!!!!!!!!
Dissensus is choosing and ranking its favourite jungle tracks.
Submit your ballots to me (sadmanbarty) over private message or at firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome and encouraged to do so.
Ballots should be between 30-100...
Hours of nerd fun, very cool
I've been listening to Soundbombing 1 and 2, Superrappin' and Lyricist Lounge over the last few days and rediscovering the modest pleasures that attend late 90's underground rap music.
Of course, you get some complete no hopers, some wild eccentrics who veer all over the place, a general lack...
Please name and shame, ideally with links to their work and explanations of why you like them.
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
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...
the specials - youre wondering now
radiohead - exit music
discuss and explore the 'smooth'
Invented in 1988 by Kevin Saunderson aka. Reese, perhaps most famously used on Renegade's 'Terorrist' and recently used on Duke Damont's number 1 single 'Need U (100%)', this has surely got to be one of the most distinctive and delightful sounds in...
im particularity interested in the acid/hardcore transition zone as it as the first music i got into...
The Brothers Grimm - Exodus (The Lion Awakes)
The Exorcist. The Scientist. Ambient Mix ...
I was reading this Guardian article (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/nov/06/reclusive-french-rap-duo-shun-record-deal-shoot-to-top-itunes-chart) and was wondering if you all had some non-English rap favourites as well. Could be any language I guess. Or is everybody here from either the UK or...
I didn't know what else to do - I'm not in the UK anymore - but I think as the first lovers hit (correct me) and as lovers was the first "indigenous" UK music, I couldn't think of anything better, plus it resonates. Any comments welcome.
Apologies if it's been posted before.
haim-if i could change your mind
tank-lost in you
tgt-sex aint never felt better
dexta daps-morning love
OK, Im looking for life changing and/or random events that had a major influence on the personal lives of musicians and/or the history of music - a couple of examples:
Geno Washington turning up at a party with a couple of Ian Brown's mates, and convincing Brown that he had what it took to be a...
I’d be up for organising a naughties nuum style poll so long as there’s sufficient enthusiasm (at least 10 people willing to participate). So if you guys are interested post some ideas for a poll. Also if you see a poll idea that you’d be interested in participating in say so, so that I can gage if...
I wanted to share this goldmine of unreleased Neptunes piffery with whoever what cares on here. And then I thunked: why not broaden this thread's remit so even those poor unfortunates who don't enjoy the Neptunes can join...
Ive searched, and found no thread on this topic specifically.
Id like to get some good ambient, but I imagine there is so much more out there than is actually good.
There are two reasons for this: one is that i use it to fall asleep to when tryin to drown out the sounds from outside my door...
amazing intervention by joe corré
perhaps we should have a dissensus meet up at the event?
Nina Simone sinnerman
John Coltrane a love supreme
Dubplate Boris. Supa D. Apple. Funky Taffa. and other Rinse DJs. Wigman (?). It's growing and changing. UK house: the new UK garage?
c'mon you beautiful bastards.
tell me what your fave ten long-players of this decade are.
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...
