    Shabba did some good tunes around 2001-2002. Probably just a bad day as opposed to a fall from greatness.



    Never rated him much on stage anyway.

    Yeah, true. Hell of a bad day though. Perhaps he was pressured into making a charity / 'tell the yootz the truth'-style appearance at the local community centre and had to hoover up his weight in drugs to get through the ordeal. And he's done proper, high-profile sets since, so... Shabba, you are released from this thread!

    I would add The Pogues, but Hell's Ditch was more mediocre than jaw-droppingly bad.

    Lovesexy is good but yeah I recognize after that its some really shaky stuff from Prince.

    Blackstar was bad.

    Was Coil ever good? Who can say.

    Interesting criteria, as you need people who attained great heights in the first place

    James Brown
    Can - everything after Soon Over Babaluma
    Discharge - every so often you hear a revisionist case made for Grave New World, but no, it's fucking terrible
    all the 80s Boston hardcore bands, most egregiously SSD
    jungle, as a whole - forget individual producers (scenius, after all). was there ever a greater post-lapsarian fall from paradise?

    I've heard possibly 30 or 40 of his tunes my man, and every time I'm like "This is it? they're acting like this is the pinnacle of jungle or whatever." I'd legitimately rather listen to Kosheen.

    truer words were never spoken

    For quality, consistency, and innovation Dillinja's 94 has to go up there as one of the all-time great years by any producer ever

    Deadly Deep Subs, Deep Love, You Don't Know, Sovereign Melody, Lion Heart, I Selassie I, the best ever mix of Johnny

    His 95 is almost as good. The Angels Fell 12" (probably the single best Metalheadz record), Muthafucka/Sky, Massive, his mindbending Kym Mazelle remix.

    Plus his engineering work for other people...

    DJ Hype.

    tigers in space/the scientist exorcist to eponymous (the chopper is pinnacle of darkside) to dopestyle all unfuckwithable. golden era hype is maybe even better than Dillinja.

    And then, playaz. music for beer boys at fabric.

    The chopper & the trooper are probably the two best hardcore tunes on subbase. The first 8 or so Ganja are unimpeachable, as much for the sensibility of the label as Hype's own productions. Then there's rolldabeats and his mixes of touch my toes, RIP and Ganjaman,

    Not sure Id hold him solely responsible for Playaz. Zinc needs to take some blame there.
