    thats a wonderful article. One of my fav things about recent music is the earnestness. My remembrance of interacting with breakcore and shoreditch electroclash (jesus) types from last decade, was how they had to smother everything in a protective gloss of irony. While some of them were surely having honest fun, a lot of the post modern sniggering seemed ultimately spineless. I couldnt help wonder if they were scared of being laughing at, if they dropped the ironic veneer, and wore their hearts on their sleeves. This stuff could never have happened in that climate.

    To me, though, dubstep's mood of introversion and policy of restraint worked for that genre when it was at its most concentrated, whats interesting about post-dubstep is that you often find stuff which is almost grafting that mood (which certainly exists in other genres - deep house, minimal techno etc.) onto the rhythmic template of a genre which is more defined by, as you say, exuberance.

    But then, I suppose a lot of people would say that dubstep emerged out of garage through the cultivation of a more Metalheadz-y mood of suspense/drama onto the fundamentally joyous template of 2-step/garage. Tempting to think of it as a sort of reverse flux/evolution movement. So perhaps people are right about something more unified appearing again in the near future?

    Difficult to really say, though, given how wide-ranging the styles are that come under this thread.

    ironizing everything is for cowards.

    i listened to the kode9 album once so im not really sure about it yet but it seemed a little to heady for me, and i have listened to the ill blu mix for mistajam a few times while running. I guess its kindof ironic that i enjoy more dance orientated music rather than headphone because it not like i ever experience it in a club

    I cant speak for Sepalcure but still think that run of hyperdub 12"s rustie/zomby, ikonika, joker/2000F is a stronger influence on damu's sound.

    i think the influence of hyph mngo on these other producers has been overstated at this point.

    hyph mngo is a quite wonderful filtered 90s house record in a 140bpm '00s context. I love it to the bone but what makes it good is also what made 90s french & chicago house fun, that warm rising filtery feeling. so if it changed your life as a producer you probably hadn't been listening to much house in the last 15 years.

    Dunno if this the correct place to post what is essentially spam, but fuck it, I'm well exited for this release........


    DISTAL - ANDROID TOURIST E.P 12'' & DIGITAL Release date 23rd May (ELIM009) IN ALL GOOD UNDERGROUND STORES
    A.Android Tourism
    AA. Love a la Venturo
    B. Africa to Mars
    B.B. Novocaine Blonde

    High grade funk from the cosmos, channeled via Atlanta resident Distal.
    Distal brings more of his trademark melting-pot aesthetic to his first full EP 12" for Fortified Audio. Squeezing the last 20 years of underground club music through his unique filter for "Android Tourism", fusing together the percussion of classic Carl Craig/ Derrick May, the dark bass and lush melodies of Blue Note era Metalheadz and the tight production of Artwork with the energy and freshness of new hybrid genres ala UK Funky and Footwork. Although Distal's productions are at their best when played through a serious soundsystem, little is lost in the transition to home speaker system or headphones, and the nature of Distal's music make it more than just fodder for the dancehall. Nonetheless, you'll sure-as-shit be hearing this behemoth EP at parties across the globe when it drops this spring. Indeed with a whole heap of 12"s set to drop this year, we are pretty confident Distal is going to be all up in everyones grill by 2012.

    I don't write these press releases, as I'm a shit writer, but you're right, that bit needs re-worded. He uses footwork to create a hybrid.
