confirming that it was 'journos' who came up with Grime and bringing back the Forward thing I typed from long time...
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.
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.
I love that 'tell me' track, it sounds so much like coffee table kwaito, i really hope the producers start looking to africa.
(even though my copy of bean arrived with a lip like a ski jump).
