suprised by how much i enjoyed this. actually loved it. i admit i felt slightly irritated by the contrarian/trolling intro matt wrote for it. reminded me of his attempt to downplay the significance of reggae to jungle, and boost the (in truth non existaent) contribution detroit techno had made, but i suppose that was the point of writing it, so fair play and the mix is brilliant, not one shit tune and the mixing itself is a lot better than in previous installments.
good work woebotThe sonic argument here is that, in real terms, in genres spawned and ideas conceived, New York was the true sonic innovator of the golden era of dance music (1984-96). New York gave us House (the epicentre moved from Chicago quite quickly), Rave (Beltram, Landlord), Trance (Revelation - first trance track IMHO), Ambient House (the likes of Sound Waves), Jazz House (Burrell), and Dub Techno - Dubstep, even! (Bobby Konders).
