If 3rd form can't be bothered writing all hope is lost.
Granted it's a product of its time but you can do a lot better than this school essayit's already been done tbh. read the alien underground reviews on datacide.
or that whole inventing te future crap from leftists with a hard on for nick land. that is the tech house manifesto.
This sounds like the sort of thing you'll eventually track down ten years later and discover wasn't quite as killer as you thought. Or maybe that's just what happens to me.years ago at an afterparty there was a dude who had this crazy record collection full of rare obscure acid, breaks and trance that somehow wasn't bad. there were a couple of 12s he had that blew me away but i was too busy caught up in the moment to note down what they were. the only thing i remember was it sounded like some kind of late 80s/early 90s blend of breaks n electro. the sleeves were full of arabic text which was done graffiti style. they looked wicked and sounded incredible. think the sleeves were black & white but could be wrong on that one. does this ring any bells for anyone?
proto goa continuum (think there was an arabic house list on discogs mostly dutch and belgian stuff made by white guys iirc.) basically on that weird belgian new beat thing before belgian techno started with music man records in the like. tbf I'm a bit of a purist in this regard I'm not so into the EBM descended stuff, i like the hard chicago acid and the belgian techno as well as the northern bleep. if i want middle eastern stuff I'll go to the source as the beats are far more complex than anything in western pop music.This sounds like the sort of thing you'll eventually track down ten years later and discover wasn't quite as killer as you thought.

that'd be more of a drum kit bias than anything. i've never particularly gone and listened intently to other types of drums, only the kit.One of bartys quirks is that despite his interest in drums he's got no interest in rhythms outside of Africa and the diaspora. So no islamic world and no india. He hates it. Says its not proper music.
how can you say that if you've listened to Zakir hussein. Rock rhythm is very simple and uncultivated, it's basically a 4-4 with a downbeat on the 2-4. Zakir goes into 2s divided into a 16 section.that'd be more of a drum kit bias than anything. i've never particularly gone and listened intently to other types of drums, only the kit.
i don't know much about islamic drum stuff but i listen to indian bits and pieces every now and then. tabla's are gorgeous texturally, but the rhythms being played never jumped out at me as being particularly novel. more rockist than dancehall, drill or jungle.
