    Dancing versus dancing

    I've been thinking about how what is to me the most interesting music over the last few years, drill and trap dancehall, are in a sense danceable but not "dance music" - that is, the functional, purpose-built stuff, which to me just feels mostly stagnant and unimaginative these days. I've felt...

    New Dancehall

    Meant to reply before with some new tracks but eerrrr didn't. The levels have definitely gone down but wouldn't say there's nothing worth listening to (although I appreciate Benny is maybe exaggerating for effect).

    The HEAVIEST bassline EVER

    Couple contenders from the Black Ops camp:

    Not sure if people saw, but EleganceGad was shot and killed last week. In addition to the human tragedy, a real loss in terms of someone pushing the autotune weirdness more than most. Been listening to this track that dropped a week or two ago a lot the last couple days. His management team...

    Depends how you define "past few weeks" - could point to other recent good tunes - but I liked Intence and Iwaata on New Moves Riddim.

    Did they download a deconstructed club EP from bandcamp for the BGM?

    Bong Bing got pretty big on TikTok and Cristale was out in Jamaica a few weeks ago, so I think we'll see more tracks in that vein soon.

    New Dancehall

    I don't dislike it in the way other people seem to, and yeah I do get the distinctive thing you mention (there is something kind of amusing about it, and not necessarily in a negative way - Skillibeng shared a video on Insta where someone had superimposed the wap bit onto COD or some other...

    New Dancehall

    Whatever the situation is, the past couple weeks have been stronger. Few recent tunes (don't think these have been posted): Couple older bits I didn't get round to sharing at the time: This last one tapping into that "gaseous" vibe Benny mentioned way back in the thread.

    That tune is obviously getting a bit of backlash - and yeah fair enough, it's a good example of Skilli's laziness we've talked about before - but I take Dancehall Mag's stance on it with a slight pinch of salt tbh. There are still a bunch of people defending it in the comments, and generally...

    have you had the corona yet?

    Not yet, although the number of infections are so low in Tokyo compared to other places and I only know a few people who have had it. Think Japan's luck might be about to run out though with omicron.

    Thanks both of you, will give all of this a listen.
