    "Good production but otherwise loads of lads mumbling about knives through a balaclava," as Luke once succinctly described it to me.

    luka said the same. it's no doubt 'changing-same' music, but that's what (when i'm at my most enamoured with it) i find so exciting about it. it's taken it's musical cues from lots of high energy music and turned them completely on their head to create this ethereal, disembodied, mediative music. that fact that most of the tracks sound the same; the same mumbling mcing, the same drums, the same piano lend to the music's mantra feel. it's womb music. listen to it the way you would listen to eno's 'on land' rather than how you'd listen if it was grime.

    that being said there are some more charismatic/individual artists:

    Classic dissensus

    Genre dismissed with caricature

    Genre defended with recourse to Brian Eno

    All grime is is some guy shouting the same phrase again and again over a beat that sounds like it was made on a SNES

    a powerful defense! if only you could get your favored artists to show so much passion

    Although I found Barty's Brian Eno defence quite amusingly dissensian, I respect the inclination to listen to this music like that, and indeed to listen to any music any way you like.

    Not a bad idea for a thread in a way... Listening to music in a way the artist probably didn't intend.
