>what nights you been to lately?
Reminder this is the new wave of /bleep/ threads and grime is no longer relevant.
Grime is not bleep.
Take it elsewhere lads!
it's a couple of guys who don't like grime shitposting and trying to push it out of the /bleep/ threads
tbh i'm just going to carry on posting music I like, grime or not
Grime is considered "bleep"
It is played in Clubs
It is Played on Rinse FM
It is reported on in Fact Magazine
It can be said to be a branch off of UK Garage
It is a form of dance music
It does not have to have a MC, it can be instrumental electronic music
Grime can appear along side other genres found in these threads within a mix
It is receiving hate here based on presumptions on who listens to it and prejudice against those who post it.
Here is a good example of a grime track:
How many of you think the lo-fi house/techno thing is a fad?
I don't know anymore.. it seems like a lot of small labels have cropped up lately putting out that type of sound and it's all just a bit boring.
The speed ron is putting out records out on LIES now maybe he knows he won't be 'hyped' for much longer.
i think it's a fad, yeah. i think producers jumped on it cos they liked what they heard.
but now it's getting old, and a lot of it does sound samey. probably gonna be a very unpopular style of dance music within a year or less
of course it's a fad. and this comes from someone who enjoys that music. i think dance music in general is a game of follow the leader, but few people are brave enough to be the first to step out of line.
>can be said
nah definitely is. nearly all the original grime boys cite people like wooky as influences. wiley got into making grime partially bc he wasnt taken seriously in garage and he wanted to make his own sound. the eskiboy sound (wot do u call it lol) and in early days grime was just called garage. not to mention the connection between the nastier type of dark drum and bass that was coming out around then times and grime. sets like this:
yeah, i basically tend to just stick to mostly UK stuff; since the entire UK scene is linked in a big web, it makes it all a lot easier to follow along with other genres of music. that way I get to hear a good amount of house music but I don't have to go digging through thousands of 90s US house records. call me a pleb, whatever. I just enjoy the UK stuff more, it has a different flavour, so to speak
this is one of my fav recent UK tracks
i know anthony naples is a US producer, but TTT is a UK label, and this track has been played out by mostly UK djs.
For you boys that hate on lo-fi music as of today I have a couple of genuine questions. No b8 m8s.
Why is it that the music's low fidelity becomes the defining feature of the music for you? To the point that lo-fi is considered a genre, to some extent. House is house music... or whatever subgenre of house is whatever subgenre that it is. If it's lo-fi or not is just its means of production. A banger is a banger regardless as to whether it's been fed through a cassette or not in the recording process, no?
Also, 10 years ago (or whatever) when labels such as Raster Noton were in their prime (like L.I.E.S. is now, do you think you'd have been like "ohhh, another really hi-fi release!" despite all the different styles of music that is released in such high fidelity.
It bugs me because dismissing production technique(s) for being 'too trendy' or a 'fad' or whatever is a ridiculously trendy / hipster thing to do. Why not just appreciate good music for what it is rather than how it was recorded?
yes m8 its liek dubstep house or somethin fat drops like
nah its pretty naff really and loads of bassline/grime producers jumped on it which is pretty gay 2
>Limited testpressing. A rotating helix of synth stabs, warped vocals and low-end torque. Subtle notes of garage and building layers of improvisation providing an earthy jazz undertone. Such essential.
great label. maybe need to slow down their output a little though
derivative doesn't necessarily mean bad. look how much everyone praises soul music. and rough 2 isn't nearly as derivative as that. imo rough 2 is a pretty original track, i mean yes it uses breaks but in a pretty cool way. if you can find me other tracks that sound similar then fair enough but to me it's an interesting tune, that still goes off live
it's also not lad music. i doubt you'd be able to find any actual uniLAD types who would enjoy that EP. it's not catchy enough
to be fair it's very easy to buy their records if you're even slightly on the ball. it's not like they sell out fast
im an 'underground' ladhouse producer and make decent money on beatport doing what i do.
why do you guys hate, when i have more success than most of you ever will?
both with djing/producing and with the women associated with doing both.
yeah maybe, it's kind of shitty that they're advertised as such which basically encourages flipping
2014 releases are still reasonable on discogs though
anyone else into international /bleep/ genres? i'm liking shangaan electro atm. sounds almost like african footwork or juke. it's really nice sounding anyway.
demdike & hype williams meet shangaan was the best in that remix series
wasn't feeling that compilation at all though, props to honest jons for the effort though scouting that sort of shit out, south africa is a hellhole
i'm feeling it, dark noise is my jam
did anyone cop 'music of the fire walkers' on BC's sublabel? the vatican shadow and pete swanson remixes were amazing
shit on fernow all you want for copypasting muslimgauze but that track is amazing, he has such an ear for sampling
i don't think anyone could really say otherwise with any conviction.
the last thread was all shitposting, they didn't even have an argument they just said grime was shit and for degenerates. don't even bother thinking about it
i went to joburg once and it was not pleasant, my brother goes all around sa a lot for work
he was in a taxi and they ran someone over and just didn't stop, brother called him out and he said you just cannot stop moving down some streets because you WILL get shot
most people in sa just don't value human life that much
i'm sure there's nice areas but i've heard nothing but horrible stories
i requested to this guy at like 12 and haven't checked for anyone else to be honest
so close now
One of the best of the year so far tbh lads. Very much recommended if you've not already listened.
first RA review i agree with in a while
not necessarily the score itself (i'd give it a 3 probably) but the comments made in the review are very true.
Oh my god, how come i've not listened to this before now?
hes a fuckin mad head is what he is
it was at outlook when i met him, everyone who i was with was in a state by this point in the festival
he fully respected us all for looking so rough haha. he came and sat down with us, gave us all loads of food tokens, invited us backstage (we were on a boat party) and gave one of us his artists backstage pass, which the guy he gave it to managed to pull off using all that night. no bullshit here, all the stewards clearly didnt know what hatcha looked like cos he got backstage on like 4 stages that night. plus we saw big narstie as we were getting off the boat and big narstie thought this mate of mine was hatcha lol
anyway he was basically just fucked doing lines of coke off his phone. pretty funny fella
i was fully dying with laughter at the time. he walked up to him, you could see big narstie looking at the artists pass then he was like "yes hatch" and shook hands with him. soooo joke
dappy video is his most wisdom though
>taxman's a pussyhole cus, you're movin like fuckin a black baby father cus, you not comin' round life while man's growin and man's on the come-up, you get me? doin none of that shit cus, then all of a sudden you hop out the blue like "right you're doin' good hours and p's, i made you" WHAT DO YOU MEAN BRUV
Keen on Mark E and Fort Romeau, never listened to the others though.
>I'll just meet you in brock hall park and fight you, 1 on 1, ya get me if you beat me up or make me give best then I'll pay tax, apart from that I'm a freeman of the land cus
I wouldn't mind tax being paid this way.
I have an issue of Wire all about it
but I've never read it properly
I always pick it up like oh hey theres a cool artist I like and BAM
dense wall of text and lengthy feature on some beardy sound artist
I'd pay to see a fight between all new wave grime producers at once vs Big Narstie. Would be jokes.
Just remember this next time you lose a fight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzHs_kR0VNk

I really wish the clash between Devilman and Killa P ended up happening, would have been proper sick.
Since the thread was talking about Big Narstie earlier: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPRadhuKnME
I haven't heard pic related yet but I think Novelist and Mumdance rated it highly on that video they did recently.
Don't be offended, have some Ruff Sqwad.

Listened to Eskiboy Tunnel Vision 1-5 again and I have concluded these are the best tracks off it:
Managed to find this on soulseek but it's missing 2 tracks, why would someone even do that. Still I'm surprised it turned up at all.

Is it just me or is Bass Clef killing it this year?
anyone got a link for LV & Joshua Idehen - Routes?
can't find it anywhere besides slsk which is taking a decade to download.
going thru a bunch of old songs and found this dusty old demo.. felt like uploading it for some reason!

she's not bad
I'd been keen for a solo album if she gets some of her dope producer friends on it
or fuck it, a whole album of her and Forrest Swords would be tight af
what does /bleep/ do when you have no scene and no events or clubs to go + no friends to listen /bleep/ stuff with?
I'd kill to live on London and be able to hang out and meet a lot of people, sounds dope as fuck
post a tune
i reckon kode9 has had a wank in the bogs after seeing inga copelands arse when he walked up the stairs behind her, the dirty fucker
well, this is a reminder for you guys to feel good about living in the UK and specially on London
the almost non-existan scene of my city only has electro and cheesy mediocre house
i know i can do it
i'm just so fucking lazy it's almost as if i don't even deserve it
gonna be a tough 3 weeks i just need to sort my sleeping patterns out fucking hell why is it so hard
m8 you sound like me tbh
if i managed it so can you... just get your shit together for the next couple of weeks and get it sorted and it'll all be a massive load off your mind and you'll feel gr8m8
i can do this
i know i can
what are some inspirational bleeps? really grandious, large scale "epic" sounding shit
"harmonimix remix of changes" kinda stuff
Dunno man, never really get inspirational vibes from bleep stuff.
Closest I guess would be this:
Square ain't bleep approved but it's the best i got.
