good point, third. and not all that stuff is great, some just interesting but not worth repeat listens. for as much as I detest the word, there is something to be said about low's curation. most things are at least interesting.

Thats absolutely fair. I know ashtray navigations from living in leeds and one of the others. was just responding to catalog's blackest ever black namedrop. i mean i am an outsider music dude, and unlike some don't pretend to minimise it, i just think like all things its become a bit of a church and a structure, which was of course not the point initially...
i dont think blackest ever black was a very successful label. never understood the appeal of raime

highbrow lowbrow pulp. fast and hard mental choppage and furious acid lines dripping in military intellect. none of that smooth sophistication or modern classical business! pure avant-prole.
would you describe yourself as avant-prole then? or do you just like avant-prole music?

They've always eluded me. You'd get these drooling Boomkat reviews pulling in Source Direct and stuff then you'd listen and it'd be some plodding, post-rock dirge. They seem to have all the 'right' reference points, but nothing comes of it.

I mean aesthetically yes. individuals of course aren't a class only economically but idgaf about that. like I'm not gonna sit around analysing Klein or Dean Blunt's tax bracket and then slot them into prole/bourgeois, that's not how that works and is against everything i stand in regards to universalism. for me a class is only really a class when it is a dynamic movement in society struggling against the old fetters on the productive forces or trying to preserve the current structure.

It's like when some people said oh those boys from st albans ruined jungle, what a ludacrously reactionary proposition.

that being said the middle class not being the ruling class does mean that collectively they engage in self-obsessed cringe guilt complexes (see Orhan Pamuk's novels for instance.)

nice dj tools but yeah apart from that there's nothing there.

again though, Senking is better than Raime.

there's a real aversion from Anglo music fans in this country to look beyond this small island. heaven forbid a German could make gnarly dnb or abstract bassweight music without being directly tied to the hardcore continuum. My crew who used to be involved in the colony nights in London booked him to play and it was great.

I expect blissblogger to go into a maoist self-criticism session about his musical patriotism in the 90s. proto David Lammy that Si.

I only recently learned that a "nocturnal emission" is a wet dream. I always thought it was having wind at night and in your sleep.
I last used this phrase when Corpsey was undergoing one of his intermittent 'No Fap' experiments.

That is one of the questions we will be putting to him in the dedicated Corpsey no fap thread.

agree about raime. always felt they were all about sound design, "tooth" sounds pretty great on headphones but a bit of a one-trick pony. version is right, they are one of those boomkat darlings who never live up to the hype.
