    The early stuff still stands up - thirdform posed the andy weatherall mixes recently and they're great. still enough of the spirit of basic channel

    Not me. i mostly hopped off london when UK funky came around tbh. i didn't hate it, I'm sure if you look on the internet hard enough you can find me getting down to migraine skank with Naomi from Tottenham, but it just sounded like dance music. nothing special. and then when a few years later i started reading the writing around it my opinion was cemented. people would talk about jungle and grimes modernist abstraction, but when it come round to funky everyone wanted to show off how multicultural they were and how they'd done their homework re the black atlantic. Well that Gilroy book is a seminal classic, no doubt about that, but do I really want the monocultural white anglosaxon protestant middle class intelligentsia expounding at length about it?

    we don't count. I'm talking about people born after 1996. Remembers might be the wrong word. Knows of is a better heuristic. we all like grime when it was at its least populist. which is why i find it odd that people try to defend the populist at all costs here sometimes.

    yeah I'd say around 98-2003-04. most stuff after that is just dullard sidechained ableton white noise tedium with wooshes.

    although remember indie house? that was all the rage on the internet around 07-09. superpitcher and that.
