NOUGHTIES 'NUUM POLL - Dissensus top 30 garage/grime/dubstep/funky/bassline tracks

hucks

Your Message Here
Here's mine, with a rather stupid bias towards more recent years due to a flaw in the method I used

Here we go, in order

Burial - Unite
Wiley - Crash Bandicoot
Joker -Digidesign
Kode 9 - Bad
Horsepower - Gorgon Sound
Cooly G -Floatin
Digital Mystikz - Anti War Dub
Shut Up and Dance - Epileptic (Martyn's No Strobe remix)
Zinc and Ms Dynamite - Wile Out(is this nuum? I think it is, even if it's not in any of the sub genres)
Ruff Sqwad- Functions on the Low

If I was to change it, I'd put in some more garage. Probably wookie. Really surprised there's no Burial, but dissensus always seemed to prefer talkin about his stuff than listening to it. There's a couple of excellent 30+ page threads in here for his two albums.


Anyway, great work Benny. Lookin forward to the
Mix, Benjy!

Kosheen – Hide U (Madd Slinky + ES Dubs Remix) fun bonus nuum fact: ED Dubs = Spatts from Criminal Minds

I DJ'd b2b with Spatts once at a NYE house party. Think we were both playing dark garage or similar. Remember that he kept drawing insanely good dubs out of his bag. If I remember right I came up on a pill during the set. Ended up chatting to some girl downstairs for ages and had to be dragged back onto the decks as Spatts was getting fed up DJing on his own. Never knew he was ES Dubs.

Runners up

Here is a selection of tunes that only just missed out on the top 30. There was only a hair's breadth between many of the tunes in this poll so any of these could have potentially made it. I had to draw the line somewhere (and no one DARE say recount - this was a fucking nightmare to sort out as it is).

Sticky - Triplets

Ruff Sqwad - Xtra

All worthy of consolation prize.

Kinda wish Pev would remake roll with punches now that he's got the craft nailed.

Love the tune but could do with a polish and the pressing was really quite

Glad people enjoyed the countdown and seem generally happy with the final list.

Those of you lamenting the lack of certain tunes/artists: Lots of the more connoisseurial grime and particularly dubstep definitely suffered from split voting, inevitable in a poll like this.
For example, practically every Mala or Coki tune they ever made received at least one vote, lots of Black ops/Wiley/Ruff Sqwad one vote wonders too.

Overall I think its a good list, no huge surprises (though I was scratching my head at Qawwali tbh) but a fair reflection of the boards general tastes - quite broad and varied but with a definite Grime bias.

Looking at Benny's top 10, surprised 'All I Do' didn't make it (I forgot to vote for it, but then I forgot to vote for Crash Bandicoot freestyle and many others) - still can't get my head round 'Flowers' being the top-rated UKG tune.

I swear there must have been more people who forgot to vote for All I do/Bump n Flex, hardest garage tune ever.

especially after this EZ vid that got discussed on here recently

(go to 14 mins in and brace yourself for when it drops)

yeah i don't get what's special about qawwali. maybe you had to be there, but i don't have the same feeling about Neverland or Root, for example...

good to see full lists to see how things shake out within genres...

been half-trying to cobble together a list for myself the last few days... especially with Funky, it's great to go back and revisit. So many favourites never even really saw proper release. the only one that made it to the big list that wouldn't make mine (i'd prolly swap Reign for Sirens...) is Inflation... i can kind of appreciate what folks see in it, but in terms of importing a melodic palette from grime, it doesn't do for me what the sour r'n'b vibes of a track like Wanna Be Your Girl does...

aah...Wanna be your girl gives me tingles every time, definitely would have voted for that had I remembered! Ill blu should have been in there somewhere too.

Inflation though, you can't test...with Funky I instinctively went for the OTT dramatic tunes.

Yeah, that's partly what I was thinking about! Amazing.

Re Inflation - there's a great pirate radio rip I have with someone chatting over it about the Harry Hill Bongo Jam skit. Will put it on youtube tonight, along with a couple of other bits (including Wiley over the Shanghai Riddim, which I had totally misremembered as being Dizzee - they were doing a b2b radio session)

Yeah, it's an ace list. Kind of nails Dissensus tastes pretty well. So which Dissensus DJ is going to do the mix then?:p Could be a Grievous Angel kind of thing, or Benjy Bars...
 
'Wanna be your girl' would have ended up in my list as the token funky tune but I only heard it for the first time a few weeks after sending in my list. To be perfectly honest my knowledge of UK Funky will always be patchy unless the likes of Rinse take a leaf out of the BBC's book and start doing up to date tracklistings (and as someone else said given that so much of this stuff is unreleased or just gets sent out for free you can't even use discogs to educate yourself). The internet was meant to make finding tracks easier but for me it's the opposite, the alternative outlet for info is mags like Mixmag but it's too much work nowadays to read it cover to cover, especially given that their free CD's have been mediocre for the last ten years now. At least Kiss have a full time funky DJ in Pioneer, what's 1Xtra's excuse. They waste several hours a day on joint broadcasts with Radio 1 which is fucking pointless.
 
My list, which features a fair bit of Grime so I wouldn't have any problem with doing a Grime top 25 in the future.
