I need to suspend judgment and i can't do that in the same way i could when i was 16. I have value judgments forged in blood and fire and the ignorance cannot be recovered. how do you escape this deadlock is probably why we're on this forum to begin with. for the older blokes like blissblogger they had linear progressions. our period is more like non-contiguous jumps and stop starts. which station do i listen to on a friday night? i can choose between pyro, mode fm, nts, rinse fm, subtle fm, soho radio, flex fm, the list goes on and on. the problem isn't the variety, the problem is it's up to me as a consumer. in some sense you need a choice to be dictated to you in a group or collective dynamic. the fact magification of much dance music contributed to this, sad to say. whereas punk still tends to have its own internal dynamics where bands are more word of mouth. these days you can't just do shit on ur own and expect your bredren to get behind you everything needs a press release.

    Again the problem is not that there is variety, that is a positive that should be retained. the problem is in the age of atomisation there is nothing to direct you. more about some new bits ive been enjoying later.
    Yeah, I've noticed a real dearth in decent curation and coverage. You've got RA, FACT and a few others who've fallen into the clickbait and advertising game and not much beyond that. The Wire's decent, but they don't really make use of their site and a physical mag isn't gonna be able to keep up in the same way due to the nature of the medium. Boomkat's front page and lists can be useful, but they're very skewed in favour of the labels they run distro for.

    It just doesn't feel like there's any particularly vital radio shows or publications around atm and it's a shame because there's plenty of decent music. There's just no platform for a lot of it.

    better than all the so-called deconstructed club that came after it imo.



    also let's not talk about eco grime because that stuff gives me nightmares.

    think zuli and mumdance on nts radio will fulfill some of those needs. the latest keysound on rinse was good by all accounts i hear but not heard it yet.

    some more juttering beats though.

    Yeah, ENA's big. There's some good dnb being made atm, UVB-76, Rupture, Hidden Hawaii (RIP) and Samurai have all been putting out decent stuff for a while.

    N1L, Renick Bell and Sim Hutchins are the best of the stuff on UIQ, I reckon. It can all start to sound a bit too much like Autechre though. Lee Gamble's NTS show is decent, but I always forget to listen and end up downloading the odd recording months later.

    that doesn't really concern me so much they have their own unique sounds that whilst being very similar to AE are not. i remember the dark days of the IDM era when you would have autechre clone after autechre clone. given that AE are my favourite electronic act (who needs kraftwerk anyway?) i found it all a bit disheartening. especially a lot of the bedroom stuff on schematic. really yucky indie whiteboy melancholy melodies over glitched hip hop beats. dire stuff.

    Spectrum Spools put out a lot of good stuff. I quite like the contemporary output of Berceuse Heroique too. And Pinkman, LIES or Knekelhuis, although sometimes their releases can get very bleak.

    i quite like this recent mix by zomby, am not sure if it's all his own material but it does has his signature sound

    I don't want to feel I'm eating vegan food in Shoreditch Box Park. At least the stabbing music feels like Outside the Box Park.

    How is it possible to listen to new music without feeling like you're in a Nike Air stealth marketing campaign?

    This is all synonymous with the birth of the hipster and the gentrification of culture and so IS hand in glove with the gentrification of Shoreditch. Maybe it's possible to do something outside of London, but then we would only hear it once it was coopted

    Has the cost of promoting music replaced the cost of producing it?

    Well that's why I'm into the more abstract stuff really. the music with feeling and emotion i can't do because of exactly that aspect. london is dead. this is what annoys me a tad about still reading blackdown's blog, forget london. it's finished. it's only multicultural in terms of a cheap labour force that white people can fuck about. otherwise as a city its sound structure or its musical output doesn't really mean anything. like come off it, a lot of the drill stuff, there are like echoes of jungle, but who the fuck wants echoes? that's like middle class trap.
