everyone like to blame the "media" - so i'm not so sure.confirming that it was 'journos' who came up with Grime and bringing back the Forward thing I typed from long time...
This stuff is the good stuff. Apple isn't even 4x4 is he...? More broken/soca?Alot of the Apple/DJ NG type stuff sounds alot, ALOT like the stuff that people in South Africa rock. Interestingly Dennis Ferrer is massive over there as well.
I love that 'tell me' track, it sounds so much like coffee table kwaito, i really hope the producers start looking to africa.This stuff is the good stuff. Apple isn't even 4x4 is he...? More broken/soca?
The rest is indistinguishable from house ordinare as far as I can tell anyway...
Really, really interesting piece, thx for taking the time to transcribe it.
its got a fucking didgeridoo in it!!!I love that 'tell me' track, it sounds so much like coffee table kwaito, i really hope the producers start looking to africa.
haha. the few of these tunes i've bought have had to go under the hot tap for flattening. some really wonky pressing going on for sure!(even though my copy of bean arrived with a lip like a ski jump).
Great article there. Leads me onto the question of whether anybody has any sets by any of the DJs which are playing at these afterparties "when it gets really grimey" - Statix/ Wigman etc - the MYSPACE links don't reveal much. Is it a case of nothing live being recorded/ available to download/ buy yet? Any boxsets/ CD packs of live events I should be looking out for?
