real london is like palestine; specks of incontiguous cantons dotted across the map. south london in gaze, drill artists are hamas (balaclava's and all). east london is the west bank. wiley is abbas.

South London.

Slavish impersonation of America and Jamacia. Deeply conservative. White people aren't allowed to make music or they will get cunted off like the white lad in the film Babylon. When they do they always look like Millwall fans, eg, English Frank in a Sheepskin coat, or Nicky S and Nike outside that skinhead pub in southside all stars. Contributions- sound-system heartlands of 70s and 80s. Fast chat. Brit-hop, roots manuva, black twang. Road rap. Giggs. U.K. Drill. Skunk psychosis. Stabbing.

West London. Smooth and soulful portabello market. Gilles Peterson. Broken Beat. Jazzy. Sophisticated. Never sweat. Cocaine. Adult crowd. Models. Trust funds. Always tanned cos take plenty of holidays.

North London. NTS curator aristocracy. a midway point between the conisseurs to the west and the rabble to the east. The heartland of early garage. freek fm. London Underground fm. Adult ravers. Proper house. Heartless crew. Very curious and long lived local iteration of Brit hop, as mud fam, itch fm, Chesta P, etc. The sound of Islington.

East London. The future, syncretic religions. Caning it cockney lad tradition. Nice clothes. Look smart. Hardcore. Grime. The link to Essex, Ilford, Romford. The heartland.

A lot can be explained by the territories they border on.
West - Surrey and the stockbroker belt.
South - Kent. Backwards.
North - Hertfordshire. Dull.
East - Essex. Aspirational geezers.

Not strictly true. There are hinterlands and interzones in London. SUAD are from one of these.


this is true but you wanted to abolish north-east london the other week. in which case there would be no hardcore. we'd all be listening to fucking balearic beats. fucking horrifying.

South London has no fashionable people. The whites here are either Millwall or disgusting crusties, squatters and anarchists. True.

I've wanted to abolish everything at one time or another I can't be held to all these different opinions I've pretended to have.

Bermondsey is Essex. The flow of people between the two is undeniable. That’s why Essex loves garage

This is more advanced mapping. This is where you have to take into account blocs which exist apart from geographical groupings. Eg. The West Indian heartlands of Tottenham, Hackney, Brixton, Lewisham.

finchley is fucking dull though. literally noone here is into music. there were a few gabba and hard techno lads but they fucked off to berlin. I don't even know why my parents like it here. oh yes i do, you can spend 26000 months not saying a single word to your neighbour.

That's true of everywhere isn't it? I've never spoken to a single neighbour since I left home, praise the Lord.

What's great about jungle is you can hear all these tendencies displayed and none of them are bad. In that context they all add something vital and valuable and loved.
