    good stuff. it made me time travel to my 15 year old self in the company of some uk hip hop heads who produced a tape beginning with this:



    i remember the rush of excitement as the stipped down, evil, accelerated bomb squad-type rhythm reset my expectations of music. this was the future. i began a quiet search to procure similar stuff. i failed. only later (after a detour) did i experience a similar rush with digeridoo, i luv you, etc..

    thanks luka!

    Been listening for a few hours now - I know virtually nothing about most of the kinds of music on this but I've loved almost everything so far. Remains to be seen whether it can cure me of my visceral dislike of about 98% of r'n'b.

    Cheers Luke, great work.

    Edit: did Freestyle rip off Salt N Pepa, or vice-versa?

    Joining the love-in on this - still working my way through the 1st 100 but it really is great so far.
    I'm in a slightly odd position in that I'm familiar with most of the ardcore/jungle/garage/grime stuff but with the hip-hop/r&b/reggae/dancehall that's the inspiration and source-material for a lot of it I only really known the obvious stuff tbh. Hopefully the playlist should help me explore a lot deeper and I'm expecting plenty of 'oh so that's where the sample's from' moments (already had a few).
    Nice one Luka

    Obviously it would be super-long for me to liveblog all my favourite discoveries from this, but for now I'll just add that Strafe - Set It Off is amazing.

    really happy if youre discovering tunes andy.
    did Freestyle rip off Salt N Pepa, or vice-versa?
    i dunno? what songs?
    pleased youre enjoying it. it wont convert you to r&b i dont think unless its a nostalgia thing. like the new jack swing bits and the hiphop soul bits are very of their time and might please for that reason alone

    The synth-strings on Don't Stop The Rock bear more than a passing resemblance to those on Push It, don't you think?

    You're right, still can't stand that ultra-slick r'n'b sound, although the Aaliyah tune is quite good. I like a lot of the late-80s/early-90s rap-soul stuff.

    as things have developed the massive blind spot in this list is road rap and south london. but i would have had to blag it.

    partially redeemed by the prescient chicago drill section. not everyone saw that coming.

    a lot of people thought that was out of place in a london playlist in 2015.
