Forum: Music

  1. What old music have you been enjoying this year?

    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

  4. Underground Africa

    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...

    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...
