agree with all thisI absolutely love this stuff. It's my favourite music in years.
For a while I'd been feeling like I was scratching around a bit with music. You know like you're still finding new things you enjoy but it's a real effort with many dead ends and long nights scrolling.
But then something like this comes along and everything opens up again. Suddenly, there's more great new music than you could ever hear and you're just freewheeling downhill for months . A friend says these moments are like that old computer game Minesweeper, those magic moments where you click one tile and the whole board opens up in an instant
A small thing but I really like how in many of the live recordings from raves like House of Silk they have a time stamp, like saying it's from 5am - 6am at a particular rave or whatever. Perfect for the vicarious raver.
this sound benefits from this a lot, the bleed into and out of different sounds, gqom etcmixture of afrohouse, uk amapiano, proto-funky, sometimes a bit of tech house
Supa d, taffa, scottie d, dj naughty, d malice, pioneer, bakonga (aka roska), wigman, lr groove even mak 10 - all the exact same names from the very start of uk funky 13 years ago now at the very least (and some of em alot further back). It's a scene of old geezers. Not bad music but very difficult to get excited about for that reason alone.
Fully formed mature house music is usually quite boring, better when people dont really know what they're doing and using the form as a jumping off point
Generally, probably correct especially in today's preset-environment where a fully formed house track easily comes pre-packaged. Though increasingly the raw stuff often sounds generic in its own way as well. Then there's stuff like Luomo which both has impeccable production and still are quite engaging.Fully formed mature house music is usually quite boring, better when people dont really know what they're doing and using the form as a jumping off point
