The thread in which we post and talk about tracks that DJ Q plays or we could imagine him playing.

This is a bit off-topic (and in the second post, "lol") but all those links in this thread are dead and it makes me very sad. The return of this sound is great though, "Brandy & Coke" is truly wonderful.

Also this can maybe the thread where we talk about Nick Hannam who is owning my life right now:

Who would have thought the space between UKG and like Yolanda Be Cool would be even worth exploring, let alone uncover such treasures?? This guy has basically one trick but I love it (check "You Want Me" and "Love You Girl").

Just how good can Disclosure get????

Tim F, Friday, 29 June 2012 17:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

They're getting better but I still think they have a way to go before they step out of just being another post-dubstep impersonator, this one sounds like an old fantastic mr fox remix of diffrent letrix which would have been alright in 09 or something but now sounds kinda dated to me. Its nice and slick, production is good, but the beats and ideas are so generic it just doesn't stick with me. Plus they're really bad at cut up vocals. Kinda suprised you dig it didn't think you where into that stright up post-dubstep vibe.

jimitheexploder, Friday, 29 June 2012 20:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

jimitheexploder, Friday, 29 June 2012 20:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

Fantastic Mr Fox is good at beats but never had any interest in making pop tunes. One of my annoyances about future garage and a lot of post-dubstep copping from 2-step was always how it wanted to suck the sonic ideas out of it while carefully extracting the pop quotient and leaving it on the side of the plate.

Tim F, Friday, 29 June 2012 22:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

And more generally it's funny that you complain "this is so 2009" rather than "this is so 1999".

I suppose it depends on whether and how you distinguish between "features vocals" and "pop".

Tim F, Saturday, 30 June 2012 00:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

right, i think some of his instrumentals are the most overtly pop (down to the chord changes & structure, some of them even have a bridge!).

40oz of tears (Jordan), Saturday, 30 June 2012 00:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

I dunno I don't hear anything pop in Disclosure no more or less so than anyone like Fantastic Mr Fox, Joy Orbison, Bashmore, etc bar the fact they get play on more mainstream radio sometimes, but then its not something that crosses my mind much in general not much of a pop guy myself. Its defo more 09 post-dubstep influenced, sounds nothing like 99 garage to me.

jimitheexploder, Saturday, 30 June 2012 05:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

Loving everything I've heard from Disclosure, was never a fan of Orbison or Bashmore bar Battle For Middle You (ergh but what a terrible title). Not sure why this is the case either.

I'm checking out Fantastic Mr Fox now and it sounds completely different to me, at least the Evelyn EP and Sketches remind me at times of Mount Kimbie, feels kind of busy and more informed by electronica in general. Which tracks should I be listening to here?

i think it's okay for music to not be pop music

the late great, Saturday, 30 June 2012 08:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

sure but it's not okay for music to be completely dry and boring

bitch I'm on the 242 (lex pretend), Saturday, 30 June 2012 08:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

To be clear, i'm not saying all 2-steppy post-dubstep other than Disclosure is dry and boring, more that it seems kinda self-evident to me why this particular stuff gets played by DJ Q and the like whereas Fantastic Mr Fox, Joy Orbison, Damu etc. (all of whom I think are excellent at times, esp. Damu - and a good example of how you can by hypercolourful and songful but not really pop in the same way) do not.

"Pop" isn't even quite the word for it - it's more a sort of bounciness and bubbliness that tunes either have or they don't.

It hardly surprises me that jimi doesn't hear the distinctions I'm hearing - we've had similar divisions before where I see a real faultline between juiciness and studiousness and he doesn't at all and seems to focus more on technical/arrangement similarities and distinctions (hope I'm not misrepresenting you jimi).

Tim F, Saturday, 30 June 2012 08:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

I mean, that distinction is one of the reasons I started this thread as distinct from just posting to rolling dance partisans.

Tim F, Saturday, 30 June 2012 08:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

Nah we defo hear things diffrently its why I like coming on here to see whats going down.

Theres a load of crossover in this and the partisans stuff anyway for me at least, I mean I've been repping for CRST, Mista Men etc for years. Just with Disclosure I don't feel like they really fit here and really do in the partisans thread. I find them a bit dry and boring. But then I lean toward more of the chunky swung bits and skipy grime/bassline with Q anyway. Just thought it was kind of interesting where the Disclosure love is coming from in this kinda scene. To me it seems like an odd fit.

Agreed with Damu he's ace. One of the only guys doing this hypercoloured sound I'm really feeling at the mo. But then he sounds pretty diffrent I get more of a house lean to Disclosure.

No Disclosure track has jumped out at me yet they don't feel like they've founds their feet at all yet. They sound to me like any old soundcloud producer playing at stright up post-dubstep tropes at the moment, which there are so many of. I mean why do I need to hear a track of theirs when bits like them where done well not so long ago and they're not adding to it yet. I dunno if they'd stand out at all a few years ago when this kinda stuff was at its peak. Maybe they'll grow into a vibe of their own a bit in the future mind.

jimitheexploder, Saturday, 30 June 2012 09:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

I completely understand this connection, between post-dubstep and Disclosure, of course. I find them way more vibey, aimed right at the dancefloor, rather than continuously foregrounding production tricks that may or may not add something extra to a track as dance music. Plus Disclosure really have this nice influence from UKG that feels like a genuine influence, rather than nostalgia or something mashed together with all kinds of other UK dance genres.

MikoMcha, Saturday, 30 June 2012 10:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

I hear more of a house vibe than a UKG one. There is lots of very busy not very dance floory post-dubstep tho yeah Fantastic Mr Fox does verg on the busy, there is something more simple about Disclosure thats why I'd put them closer to older Joy Orbison or some Julio Bashmore for the most part, even Huxley or Dusky. Its that shiny tech house vibe with a bit more bass and a slight swing. But I wouldn't go as far as to say they're swung/skippy enough to be compared to garage.

jimitheexploder, Saturday, 30 June 2012 10:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

i mean that's basically what keeps me from posting on this thread about stuff i like like pattern and well rounded, it's basically just bouncy tech house w some skippy dan bell influence and some skippy uk influence but it's really a stretch to call it anything but house

the late great, Saturday, 30 June 2012 10:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

There seems to be a lot of it about at the moment. The other weekend at Glade Festival I heard Appleblim, Mosca, Addison Groove all do pretty much stright up tech house sets with a little skip here and there. I can only take so much of it in a row tbh. However much I like some of the tracks, all at once it get tired fast.

jimitheexploder, Saturday, 30 June 2012 10:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

i've mainly been a 4x4 techno / house listener for years now tbh so it's all good to me, kind of livens up the usual gear

the late great, Saturday, 30 June 2012 10:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah it does sound nice mixed in with house/techno but on its own I just found it boring, there wasn't much variation going on. Sometimes DJs make tracks I like sound boring by the way they mix them, selection around them or whatever and this was the case here for the most part.

jimitheexploder, Saturday, 30 June 2012 10:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

My experience of Disclosure is mixed in with grime and bassline and etc where it comes across as relatively straight (but still bouncy) - though of course there's full on house tunes that DJ Q plays that are straighter.

In this regard it's interesting listening to jackin' house (which DJ Q plays a bit of) which is trying to squeeze the bubbling vibe out of an even straighter post electro-house template.

But this whole vibe - what I mean when I say "UKG interzone bubbler" - is not really about strict stylistic demarcations so much as a kind of sonic-spiritual affiliation, an "if it's bumpin..." imperative which, again, seems intuitively obvious to me but I'd have difficulty articulating exactly what it is so I don't blame people for not seeing it.

I know it seems a bit doctrinaire, but the "would DJ Q play it" rule of thumb is a pretty good one.

Tim F, Saturday, 30 June 2012 15:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah its good rule of thumb, just like I said above some DJs can make tracks I like sound boring by the way they play them and other like DJ Q can play something I'm not that into sound damn good. I guess I'd rather hear Disclosure in a DJ Q mix than in one of their own or alongside some more tasteful house. It does make it sound more exciting or at least beefs it up a little when you mix it energeticly with harder stuff.

One another note this was on the last DJ Q show...

Mella Dee - Fazed

http://soundcloud.com/forefrontrecordings/sets/mella-dee-ruff-cuts-ep-fore005

Feeling this 12", its good to hear something with a bit of rudeness at such a low tempo.

jimitheexploder, Saturday, 30 June 2012 15:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah those Mella Dee tunes are great, though they sit very oddly with this sound (by virtue of their dystopian lethargy) - it'll be interesting to see if that becomes a trend at all.

Incidentally this is the og 2-step that "Closer" makes me think of:

Tim F, Sunday, 1 July 2012 02:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

I was kind of suprised to hear the Mella Dee tracks on there, I've had them for a while and it never crossed my mind that they'd appear on a Q show. Its prob the Mista Men connection. Fits with quite a lot you hear on Hessle and Night Slugs shows at times.

I can hear that connection between closer and that yeah. Bar the drums not being as garage and them addign a little Orbison synth its damn close.

like haha i do realise none of that means nothing to anyone but just understand that simply no one else draws from these notionally similar micro-ecologies to create a living breathing sociable whole under a garage banner

took me a while to realise it btw but that 'diamond rings' is the absolute lick

listen to way it only implies the rest of the original sample ("i gave her di-di-diamond rings / i gave her everything") and plays on its past tense by introducing a portentous "I CAN'T QUITE UNDERSTAND" to make it seem like a wronged, vengeful sequel. the definition of ardkore

i guess the difference comes down to "girls like us" original mix

i actually like quite a bit of wideboys and sunship but i have a strong preference for the left of these continua

abstract <-> songful

samples, basslines, effects <-> performance, sociology

armand van helden, 187 lockdown <-> todd edwards, timbaland

"girls like us" i realize is rather right wing

but i guess it is so masterful in the effects / samples department that i love it. i'd say the same about dem 2 i guess and probably a fair number of wideboys and sunship, pre-2002 i guess

the late great, Thursday, 5 July 2012 22:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah I was gonna say, something like the wideboys' "west side (2 da floor mix)" is left wing par excellence.

Tim F, Thursday, 5 July 2012 22:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't think what you're looking for exists right now as a sound per se, except (appropriately enough) as implied by the center of the venn diagrams Q likes to draw. It's that gold thread of bubbliness rather than pop per se, a bubbliness that runs through pop and darkness/heaviness both.

Tim F, Thursday, 5 July 2012 23:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think the real demarcation these days is less between abstract vs songful and more along production values lines.

This is where a distinction between say 1999 garage and 2001 garage really makes sense, the earlier stuff still retaining a kind of vinyl warmth and almost-"deepness" and the later stuff sounding like the contrast has been turned up - heavier but more plasticky beats, exaggerated bass but also exaggerated treble... a generalised air of hyperreality.

This (rather than pop vs abstraction or lightness vs heaviness) is probably the key point of distinction between "future garage" and the stuff that Q plays, only it's even more extreme now, future garage being "deep" to the point where it has to shun anything that might interfere with that, and the Q interzone retaining (albeit as a kind of reigning principle rather than a clearly defined sonic property) the sickly harshness of bassline.

That Shake It Up comp looks incredibly forward-thinking for 2001! I didn't even know "Oi!" existed that early.

Like, chronologically I would think that the Artful Dodger comp you link precedes it.

Anyways everyone knows that the best 2-step comp in 2001 was the Masterstepz 'Ayia Napa 2001' double-cd on MOS.

Tim F, Thursday, 5 July 2012 23:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

well, it did

shake it up was october 5 and artful dodger was jun 21

which means i bought the former full-price in november (iirc my brain went DARQWAAAAAAN) and the latter off the clearance rack probably in early march 02, i clearly remember the artful dodger being the "sunroof open" disc

If I had to select a single comp that I felt summed up ukg in this regard it would be this one:

http://www.discogs.com/Various-Pure-Silk-The-Third-Dimension/release/463634

Really captures the moment of 2-step's transition from underground into overground (but not having quite made it over the border yet - which is how I'd distinguish it from subsequent comps that I like just as much).

With the Dionne Rakeem remix that opens disc 2 being microcosmically indicative.

on the assumption that my subsconscious whims are and always have been an underground river of otm:

let's lay all the notes out. where was q going before his untimely death? the house in house & garage, full circle ouroboros. maturation of bass? the medlar remix of disclosure. disclosure themselves. mk mix of storm queen. jamie jones vs azari big at the tail end of funky. bashmore topping the urban and scene charts with 'au seve'. garage scene raving to annie mac. something like this:

something like this:

DEFINITELY something like this:

huxley. hot creations. nick hannam. hot creations and nick hannam. the jackin lot - cheap n cheerful boshers AND proper house-trained operators fluent in todays clubbing, not the late, crippled baby steps house deejaying that permeated and set off london funky. hannah wants, maya jane coles , what the diff? the garage scene has never been closer to house than it has been now. is it one sided? is it mutual? if they didnt meet halfway where did they meet? murky, got a bass to it. real actual bass. 'hialeah house party' is grimy as hell. vox samples - wiseguys or brandy or fonda rae or gotye or allure it doesnt matter don't you see

Waiting until I go to bed and dream tonight in order properly to decode the above but in the meantime I can say with certainty that "Jagged Edge", "Must Be You" and "Bassline Soldiers" are all straight fire beautiful tunes. PROPER BUBBLERS.

And get at stuff I was talking about above, the idea of bubbliness as something that can't be reduced to an objective sub-style - i mean these are all "just" house tunes yet still so fidgety and effervescent (and yet ominous). Really difficult to pin down exactly how that tightrope is trod, and what are the poles it's stretched between.

Though here's something: all this stuff can sound, if you squint, a bit like... Nu Groove?

no doubt. konders, joey negro, and in partic kenny dope was another plate i had spinning at the back of my mind, the hip hop house but not hiphouse approach behind hot creations et al. made this little pile of sampley ones but then you can stretch it out into the classic breaks and boogie samples

Like in the jackin' house thread Lex was complaining about "You Want Me" using a Shola Ama tune as if it was part of the same modish R&B vocal sample trend as Blawan or whatevs, and it's like, no, they really don't care where it comes from, that's the difference.

the late great, Friday, 31 August 2012 00:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

The Monty Luke tune is probably the one that sounds least like Nu Groove, though I was really thinking more of the Burrells than Konders when I made that comment, it was just listening to Konders that sparked the connection.

Though really I'm not sure how much turns on this dispute given 2007 post-minimal deepness was basically a Konders jack off sesh in any event.

The basic difference between 2007/2008 Euro and 2012 UKG in their reappropriations of house is precisely the deepness vs bubbliness divide I was discussing upthread. You've already said you're on the deepness side of that divide so it's hardly surprising you'd be underwhelmed.

Tim F, Friday, 31 August 2012 00:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

Like "Orbitalife" would never get play by DJ Q and while I don't blame people for not getting that I think if you don't get it then you don't get it, i.e. the logic behind the music he plays. It's a distinction that is both subtle* and important.

* not in the sense of being minor or pedantic, but in terms of operating along an axis or line of division that doesn't accord with how most dance stans conceive of such things.

Tim F, Friday, 31 August 2012 01:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

no i know, this is issue is clearly more subtle than what you could figure out from a Monty Luke YouTube

the late great, Friday, 31 August 2012 01:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

rtc's most recent youtubes even considered all together probably overstate the role of bouncy house in this interzone I think (I assume for the purpose of teasing out that strand)?

I mean Q is typically housier than you'd expect from (say) his FACT mix, but this stuff is all intermingled with 2-step and grime and etc.

And the housey tunes sound different in that context than they do in another context - say, a Hot Creations DJ mix.

This goes back as well to what I was saying about the difference between normal eclecticism and the very specific kind of "golden thread" eclecticism which Q has (he's not unique in this regard - perhaps more the inverse of say a Moodymann).

Tim F, Friday, 31 August 2012 01:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

lex pretend, Tuesday, 4 September 2012 08:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

There's not necessarily a divide in the music. It's more the way different tunes take on different qualities in different contexts. If you're looking for deepness the the above house tunes sound underwhelming, adequate to the task rather than particularly well executed.

Tim F, Tuesday, 4 September 2012 09:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

no it's more that i don't really know what you mean by "deepness" and "bubbliness" in this context

lex pretend, Tuesday, 4 September 2012 09:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think the real demarcation these days is less between abstract vs songful and more along production values lines.

This is where a distinction between say 1999 garage and 2001 garage really makes sense, the earlier stuff still retaining a kind of vinyl warmth and almost-"deepness" and the later stuff sounding like the contrast has been turned up - heavier but more plasticky beats, exaggerated bass but also exaggerated treble... a generalised air of hyperreality.

This (rather than pop vs abstraction or lightness vs heaviness) is probably the key point of distinction between "future garage" and the stuff that Q plays, only it's even more extreme now, future garage being "deep" to the point where it has to shun anything that might interfere with that, and the Q interzone retaining (albeit as a kind of reigning principle rather than a clearly defined sonic property) the sickly harshness of bassline.

is it not taken as given by now though that r-t only trades in bangers as such? within that however you can differentiate between the factmix's grime/butterz cheeky delinquency, the adult dance melangey/rinse of the album, maybe in addition even the crowdpleasing hardcore finesse-less punishing bosh of the newer mixes and radio shows (fat of the land?)

even still, 'music box', 'missing aurora'... probably his tenderest work

Yes but the history of dance music is littered with the bones of producers who only trade in bangers until their debut album.

Although that hasn't been the case for the album releases on Rinse (which deviation from the norm seems actually to have hurt the artists critically/commercially? Roska at least).

maybe in addition even the crowdpleasing hardcore finesse-less punishing bosh of the newer mixes and radio shows (fat of the land?)

haha, I think at this point the analogy gets a bit strained.

Yes but the history of dance music is littered with the bones of producers who only trade in bangers until their debut album.

Even if you could afford to I suspect that making a Rinse-branded album full of orchestras, whale noises and Hope Sandoval would be somewhat frowned upon by the people actually releasing yr record.

very tempted to ask what your commute is so i can come watch your bubbly-anticipating face in person

Had to push in front of a pregnant woman at one point because I really needed a sit down after the first three tracks. It can't quite keep that level up throughout, although the Ruby Lee Ryder track is excellent. Certainly darker than I'd expected although there's still a certain beat-em-up glee to the middle section that makes 'austere' not really the right word.

instincts say the cause n affect might still be the best, or at least neatest, of the bunch but nothing's useless (trak2 are reliably good iirc)

still pine somewhat for hearing more of marcus nasty mixes of this stuff, he seems to london it up a little somehow and no one else is better at the light n sweet / dark n moody internal monologue that this music at its best demands

Too buys to do more than scratch the surface these days.

On the what we used to mean by interzone bubbler tip:

Mike Delinquent Project - Party's Over Here

On the what we apparently now mean by interzone bubbler tip:

Rita Ora - Shine Ya Light (2 Bears Remix)
Billy Kenny & Scorpz - Break The House Down
Nick Hannam - Serious
Russ Chimes - Back 2 You (Hot Since 82 Remix)
Hot Since 82 - Planes & Trains (Hot Since 82 basically have this one idea which isn't even particularly original but I love it to death)
Justin Martin & Eats Everything - Hold Tight (and yes "Trubble" definitely!)
Bryn Owen, MC Sim & Aggz - 3 Amigos
Scotty Boy & Lorenzo - No Diggity
Tee Circus - MBH (Kry Wolf Remix)
Ejeca - Horizon

big yes to all of that (it's practically impossible to find a bad jackin tune at the moment tbf) although i'm not so sold on the rest of the hs82 stuff (pete tong said 'planes trains' was a dj's tune so i stuck two fingers up at my laptop) (funny old world these days where i can hear more garage off tong than on 1xtra btw)

sorry if this question doesn't belong here but anyway, what kind of garage is this:

because to me it sounds like a mix between UKG and US house.

dan138zig (Durrr Durrr Durrrrrr), Sunday, 18 November 2012 23:48 (1 year ago) Permalink

here's another example:

I'd been sure it was 90's new jersey/new york house before I saw it listed as UK garage on discogs.

dan138zig (Durrr Durrr Durrrrrr), Sunday, 18 November 2012 23:51 (1 year ago) Permalink

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2-step_garage

Pirate radio stations often programmed Garage shows for mellow moments in the weekend (Saturday morning, Sunday afternoons). It was on these pirate shows that DJs started pitching up their Garage imports (artists like Masters At Work, Kerri Chandler, Todd Edwards) to 130 bpm, giving them the extra ‘oomph’ required by the London Jungle audience. DJs favoured the dub versions of the US tracks, says Spoony of DJ collective The Dreem Teem, because “not having much vocal element, you could play the dubs faster without them sounding odd”; these near-instrumentals also left gaps for the MCs to do their stuff. Soon the DJs started making homegrown Garage tracks that sounded like their pirate shows.

and faute de mieux this exact stuff is the popular retro sound right now

dan138zig (Durrr Durrr Durrrrrr), Monday, 19 November 2012 00:24 (1 year ago) Permalink

also for instance if you check the b-side of that there 'allnighter' ('together') it's a rip of logic 'blues for you' (hard dub)

thought occurs that in retrospect you could kinda look at my earlier stanning for 'forward motion' (mk reverse mix) (and subsequent frustration at it seemingly being ignored) as impatience for retro-proto-garage to get on with becoming retro-proto-speed garage

what is an interzone bubbler?

U.S. State Department, Office of Rare Psych (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 30 November 2012 21:45 (1 year ago) Permalink

ukg interzone - the space where uk garage mingles with other club music du jour and vice versa

bubbler - dance tune with a bubbly, carribean-like feel... or something like that, there are probably like twenty smarter and better worded Finney posts on the matter ;)

Mind Taker, Friday, 30 November 2012 22:10 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah functionally speaking this is basically just like a catch-all thread for uk garage and other dance musics that come (or are made to come) within its orbit

subtextwise i guess maybe you could say there's a small scale disco-not-disco moment going on right now (with a dj called dj q as its larry levan) with this stuff and the idea of a bubbler and its bubbling is a valiant attempt to theorise the ties that loosely but indubitably bind various stuff together

thing is we'd reject a solid rubric for it anyway so it's kind of a we know it when we hear it on the fly thing idk

r|t|c, Friday, 30 November 2012 22:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

Interzone bubbling is one of those attempts: the effort to take the temperature of the age without instruments and in a situation in which we are not even sure there is so coherent a thing as an "age," or zeitgeist or "system" or "current situation" any longer. Interzone bubbling is then dialectical at least insofar as it has the wit to seize on that very uncertainty as its first clue and to hold to its Ariadne's thread on its way through what may not turn out to be a labyrinth at all, but a gulag or perhaps a shopping mall.

^ before being fatally sb'd for repeatedly just posting "hold tight my bassline soldiers you know the koo" noted raver frederic jameson had this to say on the matter

could almost say it's indicative of a kind of pathological morbidity to jackin and jackin appreciation that's fundamentally inexpressible to the casual browser

like the best drops have a real half-smile zombified relish wit to them, this sui generis x-factor that garage or bassline or big beat or whatever u care to throw in never had

but eh idk

Yah i hear that.

Same vibe, I think, that results in jackin remixes of tunes like Tina Arena's "Chains" - jackin' fucks with adult contempo because it can turn the smallness of the latter's gestures to its own dubious ends.

watched DREDD 3D over the holidays, got me thinking about jackin naturally

the 2000ad throughline into suburban base hardcore sensibility maps itself quite well onto jackin - cannier and more modern than the archetypal thrill-power (maybe more kinda hewlett/tank girl?) but you still have that ezquerrian nutty diy crude near-grotesque brit energy going on in its raw atmospheric linearts, black humoured sardonic absurdities & gleeful violence & such

also same marriage of graf/hiphop culture and rock art cover abandon, not necessarily in a purely visual sense of course although sleepin is cheatin are a little merchandise economy i suppose, and then there's the certified jackin presentational semiotics

"None a Them" has a trippy tech-house feel that's not really commonplace in jackin, not surprising imho that a dj into that sort of thing could fall for it while being completely indifferent to "No Diggity", "Coke Diet" et al

"Naughty Good Girl" has been available for a few months now but only on bigtunes and is afaik the first jackin tune to get a re-release on a proper label (with a physical release too, maybe, perhaps?)... don't have a grasp on the label politics of jackin tbh but what i did notice is that bigtunes doesn't have a label category *at all*, it's all non-label releases and stuff that gets released on labels is usually sold elsewhere (Sleepin' Is Cheatin' catalog available on beatport but not on bigtunes for example)

"Erotic City" is fab, Lorenzo + Tom Something seems to be the winning combination atm

You'd consider his Neeko stuff regular house?

I've only heard three of his Neeko productions (Lie to You, People Outside, and the Biggie sampling one). Part of why I like them so much is that to my ears they have a rougher, more nervous, rushy energy than some of his other productions. That, and I'm a genuine sucker for some of the acapellas that he's using.

Benny B, Wednesday, 9 January 2013 23:30 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah it really reminds me of like trc, screama, emvee etc breezily switching codes from bassline to funky to wherever else and back

maybe i'm belabouring the point but it gives a real sense of a pure elemental musical fluidity, something that kind of transcends the more studious evolutions of historical nuum-y ldn stuff idk

i guess this is what i mean about jackin's precariousness/assurance binary, they're not beholden to following a scenius muse like the funky lot were, they can and will make whatever they feel the need to, whatever the moment demands, and because their only concern is with what works there's the necessary guarantee of expert calibration... but at some point the jackin tribe will just shrug and abruptly melt off into the next vibe

the ldn scene in comparison is a lot more tidal and right now you could say it's still in an ebb phase, still absorbing. so you'll get all these uninspired genre-aping wannabe tech-house mixes doomed to forever be pathetically poor relations, or mishmash mixes with 'au seve' bunged in somewhere that don't quite grasp anything yet, or whatever

Benny B, Monday, 14 January 2013 21:22 (1 year ago) Permalink

no nothing to do with jackin, i brought it up in negative comparison to regular "deep" current house to make the point about ldn's lifeless and uninspired inferior aping of it - danny daze for beginners kinda thing

i hadn't shuffle in mind but idk i'd originally assumed that scene was a little more strung-out, minimal and techy than that scotty d is for some reason

instead it turns out shuffle and the vaguer thing i was aiming at are closely twinned if not indeed more or less the same

r|t|c, Monday, 14 January 2013 21:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

i mean i think i can kinda detect a slightly ruffer slant on house in shuffle sets than maybe you'd normally get but still to make a buzz and a dance and etc about it all is like duhhhhhhh, have a cookie kids

kindergarten version of what circle were doing basically, with perhaps a touch more anthropological interest but still the same value ultimately

r|t|c, Monday, 14 January 2013 22:00 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah sounds about right re: shuffle at this point. Can't say I've made it all the way through any sets I've clicked on in soundcloud yet.

mind that scotty d sounds pretty strung out and minimal to me, I think it would fit in a 'shuffle set' (whatever that is lol).

Benny B, Monday, 14 January 2013 22:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

this homegrown number (the first explicitly for the london shape throwing scene? I dunno, circle didn't have any records out did they?) reminded me a little bit of OB/Fingaprint Domino effect rmx. Nowhere near as good obv (rubbish vocals!) but still. http://youtu.be/fcLAILNH7vc

Slogans
The slogan for Aero in Australia during the 1980s was "It's the bubbles of nothing that make it really something." From the 1999 redesign and "singers" advertising campaign Aero's tagline was "Have you felt the bubbles melt?" This slogan was invented by Nick Welch, an advertiser and the father of Florence Welch of the indie band Florence and the Machine. The latest slogan as of 2011 is now "Irresistabubble". In 2012 the Aero bar slogan will be changed to "Get your bubble on".[citation needed]

also on further refection, I would like to add KNITEFORCE to the list of possible spiritual forefathers of jackin (the others mentioned were Suburban base, Nu Groove, Todd Terry and Kenny Dope i think). Coming at it from these angles rather than the straight uk garage lineage is more interesting to me atm, i've already listened to so much garage.

I think lots of people in these roles feel the need to say that there is (unidentified and undefined) rubbish out there precisely so as to evoke the impression of discrimination.

Sadly once that phenomenon becomes widespread (i.e. lots of people drawing lines between the good stuff and the bad stuff) it's usually the beginning of the end :-/

Though funky had about a two year run of goodness from the first complaints of this type (early 2009?) to its ultimate demise.

Mind Taker: bigup! Some of those are big. Love Me is one of my all time favorite garage/anything tunes

Benny B - re alternative jackin linages, Lorenzo mentioned Musical Mobb when I asked what inspired the jackin bass!

You can definitely here some of that in this


As well as the totally hardcore/euphoric vocal line.

What I'm interested in is, what's the house these guys were listening to pre-jackin? Apart from like, Body Language by M.A.N.D.Y & Booka Shade I really can't find any electro which seems to reach forwards to jackin.

This early Ryan James swagger mix is apparently quite a big deal/major Ur-Jackin text:


https://soundcloud.com/ryanjamesmusic/swagger-volume-2
It's mostly pretty swag lol. Love the tag: 'Electro Organ House' though. There's your whachucallit moment right there.

The track that kicks in at 35 minutes in is Love For Me by Lorenzo (& Jayye Jackin and Dappa D I think..)


https://soundcloud.com/chris-lawrence/groove-box-love-for-me
It was one of the very first couple of house tracks he ever made. It's quite good fun, but what really sticks out is how underdeveloped it sounds compared to his stuff now. Obviously that's in large part to him becoming a more mature producer, really honing his skills over the last couple of years.

But I also think it's the sound itself maturing, coming into its own. Listening to that track, or like, Doin Time by James Oliver -

- a total banger from 2010, really provides the best evidence I can think of that along with being absolutely don't-give-a-fuck-BANGING party music and a vital and thriving scene, jackin does have a FWD imperative, The sound's innovating, getting better and weirder all the time really.

Apart from like, Body Language by M.A.N.D.Y & Booka Shade I really can't find any electro which seems to reach forwards to jackin.

well there's... several years worth of post-'Your Hands Up for Detroit'/pre-Swedish House Mafia mersh electro-house for starters?

Mind Taker, Friday, 1 February 2013 15:15 (1 year ago) Permalink

That's what I'm saying, I don't hear the likeness.

Some of my first times clubbing around 07~08 were to big bate electro house (lol) and I remember it all being midrange, sawtooth shit (good craig though)
I mean, obviously there is jackin which is just midrange sawtooth shit, but I'm talking about the bassy elements of it, the warp-donk-owl bass etc.
Or do the sub frequencies all come just through bassline?

I suppose what I mean is, I'd love to know what were some of the house bangers that were doing the deed up in the North/Midlands around 2009, as bassline was dying and jackin was being born.

Datwun, Friday, 1 February 2013 16:14 (1 year ago) Permalink

ok i guess i was thinking in broader termes incl. uh 'electroline' or whatever that sort of thing's called nowadays - since jackin came out of it i'd wager they were probably raving to Fedde Le Grand, Axwell etc (stuff that also had much more swing and funkiness to it than both the Get Physical-type electro-house that preceded it and the trance-with-hamfisted-electro-interludes EDM mersh that followed)

Mind Taker, Friday, 1 February 2013 16:41 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah I can hear that. I've heard people posit the more fidget end of things as an influence, what are some of the '09 fidget bangers one should know about?

Datwun, Friday, 1 February 2013 17:14 (1 year ago) Permalink

I dunno, Crookers, Switch, Jesse Rose, Count and Sinden too I suppose. That stuff has never really been acceptable to me but its definitely a direct influence on folk like Ill Phil at least (check those mixtapes on the Bass Weazal SC posted above). Jackin does a much better job of the electro house + kitchen sink thing.

i liked it fine enough (mixed especially) but it's seriously only about half as good as the first imo - most of the artists have better trax floating around elsewhere (even on moda itself wrt j&ag 'guess who' and celsius 'thought as much'). i'd say it seems to settle for a narrower consistent signature vibe where vol 1 had a broader, more unpredictable scope

the huxley is reliably slamming though, and the lrusse & bleecker earcatching if ungainly for a house tune

MikoMcha please scroll up thread and decide which of the 2013 thread names is best.

I dunno... "It's the bubbles of nothing that make it really something" is probably my favorite out of those. I'll try to think of something, but the keywords ineffable and bubblers are kind of restrictive.

taiki & nulight really finding their feet now. bit of the grime aggro in there i've been impatiently waiting on

like they're that rare commodity, not bubblers or rollers or droppers or vibsers but slammers, they fling their tracks at your wall

where is my darling mind taker these days btw, i assume he still listens to music

r|t|c, Friday, 14 June 2013 11:24 (1 year ago) Permalink

still do, yeah!

love Taiki & Nulight's "Take Me Up", here are some other things i'm loving right now too:

DevelopMENT - Bring Me Alive
Justin Martin & Eats Everything - The Gettup
Cause & Affect - Mistakes
House Monkeyz & Thomas Graham - Lost
DJ Q - Big
Paul Sirrell - You Must Be
Alix Perez feat. Sam Wills - Annie's Song (Shadow Child Remix)
Jay-Z - 99 Problems (It's a F***king Benny Rich Bootleg v1)
Baby Blue - Bumps (TS7 Remix)
Ejeca - On
Infinity Ink - Infinity (Skream's 99 Remix)
Republic - Stroke It Baby
Laura Smith - Kriminal (Benny Rich Remix)
Foamo - Sherlock (Kry Wolf Remix)
Dirty Playa & Paul Lawrence - The Rain
Tomola & Marc Spence - Be There
Silverstar - Music Is Magic (DCUP Deep Bitch Remix) **
Caserta - Change Your Mind (Scott Diaz Remix)
Davey Ecko & Thomas Graham - Better Believe
Katorski - Nicole

** haha love how thoroughly the former haven of super respectful & reverent touchy-feely geeks that was deep house has been hijacked by the happy-go-lucky vulgar types, like blog-houser Dcup branding his stabs at 'deep house' as DEEP BITCH remixes or when certifiedjackin on fb wrote something along the lines of 'hey guys i wanna start a new deep house youtube channel do you have a suggestion for a name, ie BALLS DEEP?'

I think the real demarcation these days is less between abstract vs songful and more along production values lines.

This is where a distinction between say 1999 garage and 2001 garage really makes sense, the earlier stuff still retaining a kind of vinyl warmth and almost-"deepness" and the later stuff sounding like the contrast has been turned up - heavier but more plasticky beats, exaggerated bass but also exaggerated treble... a generalised air of hyperreality.

This (rather than pop vs abstraction or lightness vs heaviness) is probably the key point of distinction between "future garage" and the stuff that Q plays, only it's even more extreme now, future garage being "deep" to the point where it has to shun anything that might interfere with that, and the Q interzone retaining (albeit as a kind of reigning principle rather than a clearly defined sonic property) the sickly harshness of bassline.

UKG is in love with defacing and desecrating all binaries, including the binary I attempted to draw only a year ago.

"Basslime" is way funnier to me than it deserves to be.

not a snarky question, btw - don't know if you're into clubbing or not but in that type of situation it's usually the way to go
