Just put up Volume 4 of my Club mixes
Anyone else feeling this stuff?
Sadly not re recent mixes. I haven't even really listened to any mixes of it (how the hell do you even mix em?! They're all about 2 mins long!). I've just done the same as you suggested way upthread - hoovered up all the free individual track downloads on soundcloud & then given up a bit through exhaustion. As well as the producers themselves, there are a few people who specialise in putting good selections of NJ Club stuff up there, but I'd have to sift through all my soundcloud contacts to find em.
I was put onto NJ by the Simon Reynolds links, maybe early last year/v late the year before, where he was talking about the dancing (about as revelatory as 'cutting shapes'!), but after watching/reading some Sliink etc interviews, it seems to have been coming together for many years, with obvious evoloutionary friends in Miami Bass, juke, ghettotek, Bmore etc. I personally think its way more exciting than most Bmore I've heard (not that I'm an expert) just cos of the quickfire nature of it. I know what ya mean about the wackiness - can't say I've heard it in a club (where would you over here?), but I'm groovin' at home when the kicks come in & the panning starts (the No Sleep Til Brooklyn one is coming to mind)!
When I get a mo, I'll list out my favourites, but I think you covered most if not all of em above. I have played loads on the radio but there are a handful of UK-relevant ones I was concentrating on (reggae & garage remixes etc) that I thought might help spearhead a bit of interest - the aforementioned Sister Nancy & T2 remixes, "Put Cha Back In It" (based on MAW "Work"), the "Show Me Love" remix etc...
This Night Slugs one is based on a Bmore tune as well of course: http://www.discogs.com/Pearson-Sound-NSWL007/release/2775709
Love that bit in The Wire where Chris pops the guy for not knowing his Bmore rap!
K Millz new to me - will check, cheers!
