    rolling back to the future garage/post-dubstep/alt-funkstep/intelli-2step etc thread

    Maybe Garage inspired rather than garage proper, this one is sang by Hundred Million Lifetimes daughter Gemma Dunleavy- Up de flats It kind of reminds me of Mabel's finders keepers, the production isn't the important part, it's that the vocals have a bit of that sense of a teenage essex girl...

    if New York can die so can London

    Just the first part, it's a book like any other, won't cost a fortune to post- unless Brexit has changed things. PM me you're address and I'll see to it in the next few weeks.

    if New York can die so can London

    Here Luka, my probation officer says I'll never get off the register unless I show true contrition and goodwill towards my fellow man. Taking him at his word, I'm considering posting you the first part of the Alan Moore Jerusalem novel. Frankly, if you think the Glastonbury quintet is digestible...

    Okay, carry on sir.

    Luka you are being a contrarian for the sake of it if you listen to this Essentials set and still maintain that South London can't do Grime. Start about 43 minutes in and try and tell me that K Dot, Jendor and Kaptain Remerdee aren't contendors for the best trio of MCs. Obviously no one here...

    questions you are dying to ask but are too scared to b/c of music nerd cred?

    If I remember rightly the vocals in Papua New Guinea are sampled from a homemade tape. The producers wife or girlfriend went on holiday to either Spain or Greece and had a short fling with a local man. When she returned home she received a letter from that man, who included a tape of his own...

    Deep House and Garage

    I always had a soft spot for this Miguel Migs track it has to be said. PetalPusher- Breakin it Down I can't believe that peak Naked Music is the absolute worst cul de sac of Deep House (not that I can think of any contenders). Their catalogue warrants further examination.

    Wuhan Killer Sneeze (thanks Tea)

    I guess more than ever people are just going to have to practice safer sex. Kissing is obviously off the cards but 69 should avoid any dangerous covid 19 transmission.

    So in terms of government shutdowns and tens of thousands of civil servants not getting paid, the system was set up like this intentionally, right? In order to get opposition partiesto bow to a presidents' demands. Because while I can understand employees might get the sack a full year without a...

    Hipsters, in hindsight.

    I'm not quite sure what you are implying here, but if it is the idea that Mighty Mo is a common or garden cockney then it's wrong- I think his parents are from Afghanistan or somewhere else in Central Asia.

    Creative Genius at Walkers

    How did the greasy razor thin slivers of potato that Walkers specialise in ever get to be market leader, it's the perfect example of how England is the original lumpenproletariat nation state. Nothing is too bad for the likes of us, we'll ignore all the better brands of crisps because Walkers...

    rolling tv thread

    If you like the sound of a work of fiction that is focused entirely on biblical levels of private sector shotting and public sector corruption- then the Wire is for you. The city depicted in the show is a living breathing thing. There are millions of characters in it, some of whom say one...

    Sample-based music was maligned by the right and left and was truly psychedelic

    This reminds me of the Irvine Welsh novel Glue. The superstar DJ's dad is a socialist trade union rep and diehard Elvis fan. He says something along the lines of "Call that music. they can't play any instruments- all they do is steal a sample from real musicians then sell it back to consumers...

    Russia Surrounded

    I seem to remember the number is vastly higher than this, more in the range of hundreds rather than three. All in all though it is hard to measure as the Vietnam war took place in at least three countries, and arguably started in the early 40's and ended in 1979. And to add to the litany of...

    Hardcore Continuum Autopsy

    I would dispute that. 15 years ago Britain had around five dance music magazines and they all covered trance, some of the big superclubs like Gatecrasher or Cream played a lot of it so it would have been commercial suicide for journalists to ignore it. Nowadays there are only two magazines left...

    Hardcore Continuum Autopsy

    Droid is far too busy to be talking about his hometown, not like you Cockneys who are all on the dole and have got nothing better to do.
