    I'd heard of Krumping, but not this stuff. The dancing is amazing, reminds me of an highly advanced version of the rave dancing you saw in early 90s videos for Prodigy, SL2 etc. The music is incredible - functionally complex in that it is designed to inspire ever more impossible foot-work.

    I'm guessing none of this stuff hits vinyl?

    I don't think much of the really mental stuff leaves the neighbourhood, but even the older, established guys are pretty much all digital now from what I've seen.

    Thinking about this, I think its because the feedback loop is so confined, there is a real narrow intensity at work, where a minor deviation on an established theme gets driven so mercilessly to its own ends, ideas run away with themselves... or suttin.

    this is exactly what i was thinking last night, its so heavy... people associate functionality with rhythmic compromise or whatever, but because of the specifics here its pushing the complete opposite direction

    yeh definitely. also i reckon the fact that its focused on the dancing, so as well as the general drive for the new in producers there's a more direct and tangible driver for making more and more twisted and contorted tracks

    when you click on the links below do you not get a player?

    http://www.imeem.com/djlilred/music/...thinmix/?rel=1 <<< this one is rowdy, less twisted but still completely crazy

    all those pitchshifting vocals make a lot more sense thinking about the dancing now too

    fuck yes

    werk dem bangz

    these tracks, esp the ones which have no kick drums, just deep bass, have a groundless, zero gravity feel to them which suits the dancing completely - it's as if the frantic footwurk is an effort to stay afloat among deep bottomless rhythms

    sorry I just love this stuff

    Hellllll yeah! huge respect for all the vids and tracks on this thread, you've just blown my tiny mind. i'll give 100000 monopoly ús to whoever finds an outlet for this stuff. Do any Chicago heads on here have any clues?

    Damn, this DJ Elmoe stuff is great. Really weird and buoyant. Those pitched-down claps create a wonderful sense of drag against all the hyperspeed toms. And where those stuttery vocals used to really bug me, they're so intense here that you can't help but submit. This shit is truly out there. Check out the bass line on "You Got the Fuck Knocked Out"!!

    such weird tense music... never any big drops to release what builds up, just constant pressure.

    DJ Clent & DJ Rashad are ill!

    Its wierd, the youngers don't seem to care that people outside of the circle may be interested in their music, I think Bok Bok was tellin me he contaced DJ Nate on myspace & got no response.

    Some of these tunes are proper OTT emotional as well;



    These kids are a bees dick away from actual blows at times - watch the kid with the striped shirt dance his opponent out of the circle!

    & they all dance faster than the cheap digi-cams can capture, which along with the un-synced / un-related soundtracks give these videos a really eerie quality, like music vids for Holger Czukay tunes...

    This is the most jarring aspect as well! Goes aganist the grain of what is maybe the most fundamental aspect of dance/club music. Maybe related to the way the dancing isn't, or doesn't seem to be structured in any formal way, there is no start, middle & end, the dancers float in & out over the top of the beat, doing routines as long as physically possible until it collapses, then start over.

    Its really 'difficult' music as well, it sets up a bunch of parameters & challenges the listener to keep tabs on multiple threads.
