    Default 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 would be useful.

    Some people have been mentioning in other threads about a Footwork influence which is obvious in the following video: The setting of the barber shop and bright fluorescent lighting is very similar to a certain well known Chicago Footwork spot.

    Some of the tunes that are big also seem to have a certain sound to them. eg. Playtime Productions - Our Kind

    Will post some more tunes as I find them to avoid turning this into an Audio Rehab promo thread. Any further recommendations appreciated.

    i think some of this stuff is called 'bass house' - in sense of giving focus on basslines, not in sense of post-dubstep 'bass'.

    Liverpool's Dj Zeke has some nice mixes: https://soundcloud.com/dj-zeke

    People are dancing to house music, nothing new.

    Hardly anything new, just what funky led to. This has been going on for years now?

    Love that article Benny B!!!

    Think I prefer the dance to the music, some of them have quite nice basslines, and it's not offensively boring like some other house, but it's hardly mindblowing either.

    i don't know if you're trolling or not with this comment, but that's a ridiculous statement.

    *also to say it's 'just tech house' proves you know nothing about techno, house, or even for that matter, tech house (which we all know is poo)

    **also that sounds uncannily like what each one of my grime friends said about dubstep when they first heard it, oh and what happened there?

    the whole 'anti foot shuffling' thing is a page made by old cunts who don't like the fact there's a new attitude they don't recognise in their party's. It's also clearly a cynical attack on a type of person who attends these party's that boils down to race & age.

    edit* and it's DEFINITELY not anything new, just trad euro house.
