The "Not Quite Hip-hop, Not Quite Dubstep" Thread

97 posts in this topic

As long as the lineup is as strong as the show they did at Fabric earlier in the year I'm sure it won't be too much of a challenge :facepalm:

Probably old news but loving this Illum Sphere track:

It's on the criminally short Fantastic Mr.Fox FACT mix

:) good skills man. Have you got a soundcloud or anything?

just a myspace at the moment. really different music from the rest of the luckyme lot though... http://www.myspace.com/weareamericanmen

Travis is alright, used to be a regular on IRC until he got more successful. I've done a few remixes for his stuff. It's good to see him branch out a bit, but you can defo feel his influence in there.

PS: go on namedrop, haha.

Can i hear a remix? i love his music, really think he's one of the best producers.

I read some decent reviews of you guys- good job!

thanks :) yeah it was awesome fun

Stumbled onto Grooveman Spot (aka DJ Kuo-g) via Dam-Funk's excellent Future Sound of Modern Funk mix for Mary Anne Hobbs. His new album Change Situations flips between fat synth funk and Slum Village style mellow electronic hip-hop. Shame it's so expensive to import the cd. Here is the official promo vid and a couple of album highlights:

The new Soul Jazz "Future Bass" compilation is streaming over at XLR8R, loads of new tracks from Four Tet, Mala, Untold, Ramadanman etc. I've listened through twice now and it's excellent stuff, the Ginz track is my favourite at the moment; total and utter dirt.

Stream here: http://www.xlr8r.com/news/2010/09/stream-new-future-bass-compilati

future_bass_0920.jpg

01. Mala - Don't Let Me Go

02. Four Tet - Nothing To See

03. Untold - Fly Girls

04. Coki - Ransom

05. Ramadanman - Bass Drums

06. Black Chow - Air

07. LD - Mastermind

08. V.I.V.E.K - Talking Shadows

09. Randomer - Puzzled

10. Ginz - Boss

11. Harry Craze - Gone

12. Distal - Grape Donut

13. Sub Version - Free To Funk

After poking around on the net it's only £8.99 on triple Vinyl with free P&P at HMV and Amazon which is clearly ridiculous value. Out next week I think.

This Dark Sky track from the same comp is a stormer too:

Grievous Angel's a badman, but there's something about the name "Future Garage" that is all wrong. It's a bit Intelligent Jungle.

Yesss. Its fairly annoying as genre names go. I heard "Future Bass" too the other day.

Very nice indeed, that one had passed by my radar too.

At the other end of the spectrum, I caught this on a recent Electronic Explorations. Crank it up loud:

Blue Daisy vs TOKiMONSTA - USD

Disgusting.

Crikey that is superb stuff.

More Blue Daisy, this time Blue Daisy and Anneka:

Totally gorgeous stuff. Reminds me of old Third Eye Foundation.

Not totally sure where to put this but Lone has been sort of "future "funk" or whatever for a while. He's gone more housey of late, late-80s Chicago house/acid but with the trademark wavy, dreamy sound. Check those wavy rave stabs - oooo.

Can't get enough of the chords:

And here he is remixing Solar Bears, on his own Magic Wire label:

Lone is down to remix the new Underworld single out in November.

How hard has James Blake been killing it this year? Everything he's touched has been gold. I was listening to his revisited Electronic Explorations mix earlier and kept repeating the final track "I Never Learnt To Share" over and over as it's so damn good. Looked on Youtube when I got home and someone has just uploaded the entire thing:

The final minute is the sex, especially on headphones as the vocals layer and the synth line goes crazy on top. Oh my days.

Yes! He's amazing- I don't think I've heard any bad.

The latest XLR8R podcast is fucking siiiiick, an almost entirely instrumental new grime mix from Elijah & Skilliam. Thought it fitted in with this thread as many of the tracks use similar aesthetic and ideas; really really fresh and if like me you'd wandered away from the Grime scene in the main due to all the silliness and posturing, a very welcome reminder of how ludicrously exciting the music can be when done correctly.

http://www.xlr8r.com/podcast/2010/11/elijah-skilliam

The first time I listened to it I'd accidentally hit the 2x speed button on my iPod (the new playing at 45? :blah: ) and it sounded completely mental, but I'd recommend the correct speed :)

Really digging the 'aquacrunk' at the minute; mainly for the endless melody some of these guys pull out of the bleeps.

Been playing this a hell of a lot...

Cut from a Vex'd mix, there's a quality track that rolls in at around 1:30.

Checked this guy (doshy) out on Last.fm; there's some great stuff from him on soundcloud that appeared in Jamie Vex'd's Red Bull Academy mix which I'm absolutely gagging for a playlist for.

Oh man, I've been after those Doshy tracks from the Jamie Vex'd mix for so long - never knew who they were by. Amazing music.
