you don't talk about drill like someone in the drill culture. you talk about jungle like a junglist, albeit a shit one who has only listened to 30 jungle tunes, but you're still nuum through and through. noone can take that away from you.

that was more to calm luka down. he's been all weird on the futurist and this thread and it was making everyone uncomfortable. i had to surrender, give him some room to breath and get him back to his old self.
I did actually grow up in the '90s you know! futurism and multiculturalism are two highly venerated sacred cows for my people. I found I couldn't even pretend not to hold them dear. They are actually pretty central to me. It seems obvious that both are on the wane and that upsets me.
as an aside, something you get with all the post-808 music's, but particularly with drill is the thing of the drum sounds decreasingly resembling the drum kit. in a drill song what's ostensibly the snare drum has very little to do with real world snare drums. it sounds like it could be a hi hat, or a squelch or a click. it's all part of drill's aesthetic of abstraction and solipsism. dematerialisation.
footwork was the last iteration of that. the last thing filling that cultural space
Autechre just took the same equipment as all the dance music producers and made weird and beautiful stuff with it without "dance-ability" as their first goal. All well and jolly
