    The 2010s...

    The 2010s already in the finishing phase, only four months to go. What was significant of the decade? #EDM - a terrible juggernaut, coming out of nowhere in 2012, mostly 40+ year old DJs (exception: Skrillex) all of a sudden packing stadiums and Las Vegas

    Another 90s Hype Thread - Acid Jazz + Gilles Peterson

    This installment of my 90s hype threads will possibly be the least attractive - yet it gotta be done Acid Jazz - I hardly remember much of the actual music, however I do remember several articles in the music mags I used to read back then as a teenager, so I guess it had some importance. Brand...

    Another 90s Hype Thread - "Asian" (Pop)Music in the UK

    Was flipping thru my old music mags during the weekend.... Noticed there was a little hype going on regarding "Asians" in UK pop music of sorts. Pardon me though, I am neither British nor Asian, I know next to nothing about it, or even if it was a "thing" at all. There were Cornershop, Voodo...

    1990s hypes revisited - loose series installment 06 - "Britcore"

    There was this mid-90s hype - at least in the German speaking world - regarding "Britcore" - UK Hip Hop, outfits like Gunshot, Blade, Hijack. They had a bit of a cult-following in Germany (and Austria) from let's say 1991-1995, got good reviews in music mags and were repeatedly on tour. Yet...

    1990s hypes revisited - loose series installment 05 - "French House"

    I don't know if this was actually a "thing" in the UK at all, on the continent it was - "French House". There weren't many French pop-music acts getting international recognition before the electornic (dance) music revolution of the 1990s. Jean Michelle Jarre, some dicso outfits. I think that...

    1990s hypes revisited - loose series installment 04 - "Lo-Fi"

    OK, this time it's some genre - if it's a distinct genre at all - I know almost nothing about - "Lo-Fi". People likethe Palace Brothers/Will Oldham. Nerd-ish people recording folk-rock songs in their bedrooms/toilets (well, it got a wikipedia-entry so I guess it's a genre after all). The only...

    1990s hypes revisited - loose series installment 03 - "Illbient"

    Me thinks, this was somehow the geographically distant cousin of trip hop, a bit rouger maybe. Very 1990s til early 00s and US-East coast-y. Main label Wordsound. I quite liked this stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_512Vo6mBAI

    Eurodance 80s - 90s

    Well, thirdform asked for it, I think it got the potential for a fun thread. Qustion is, when could you start talking about "Eurodance"? - as a distinct mainstream - "genre" Eurodance was most certainly a 1990s thing. But lots of elements could be found way earlier, like mid 80s chart success...

    1990s hypes revisited - loose series installmant 02 - "Big Beat"

    Another episode of my 90s hypes series, this time - "Big Beat". I frankly admit, I never was a big fan nor did I follow "Big Beat" all that much. At the time Big Beat was quite a hype, namley mid-late 90s I was still very much into techno, jungle, gabba. Gotta also admit, I liked some of the...

    1990s hypes revisited - loose series installment 01 - "Easy Listening" I am going through my old music mags I started to buy as a teenager meaning in the mid90s (around 94, 95) and it's astonishing what trends I had already forgotten about which got featured there. So, anybody remebers "Easy...
