Yeah that was pretty awful. Something the DJ would spin VERY early in the evening while s/he's sorting through records and no one really wants to dance just yet. Polite house over martinis. And there are no dynamics to it; nothing slams into place. The vocals are bland. The lyrics are banal. And finally, it's not all that funky!
Now go record something good please.

i quite like the double-tap piano hook on this 'awful gay terrible house music'
― blueski, Tuesday, 22 April 2008 09:45 (8 years ago) Permalink
It's more attenuated than the Hed Kandi norm. But I bet it wouldn't prick up my ears if it was thrown on one of their comps. And I don't live in London so I can't comment on how different-yet-same it is.
I mean, I guess it's okaaaaaaaaaaay on a second listen. But definitely nothing to write home (or start a thread) about.

I like this quite a bit, though it's not the best funky house (in the strict london '08 sense) tune I've heard. I like that the genre is increasingly coalescing around that post "Cure & The Cause" sound but with a stronger Carribean influence - I'm hoping it becomes even more syncopated. Funny how bassline and funky house have so cleanly split speed garage influences between them.
Secret prescient and lost funky house tune before the fact: Mis-Teeq's "Eye Candy".
― Tim F, Wednesday, 30 April 2008 13:19 (8 years ago) Permalink
Pleasant enough but I agree the lyrics and vocal hooks could be stronger, although the singing itself is fine. The worst thing for me is I don't like the piano and snare sounds they've used, especially the piano (something about its tone grates with me).

― deej, Thursday, 1 May 2008 01:01 (8 years ago) Permalink
One thing that's important to note is that UK equivalents of vocal house, esp. in the post-speed garage tradition, have never been interested in lyrical profundity or vocal power in the way that the US tradition has been. There's very few stirring diva performances - most of it is more focused on how very simple vocal phrases are situated in the mix. So people looking for good "songs" from this genre will inevitably be disappointed. But, you know, Dem 2's "Destiny" didn't need to be a "good song" to be fabulous, and nor does this stuff.
Blackdown had a great little bit on the lyrics to this track on his blog.

and in addition to that overly obnoxious gear snob post I just made can I just throw in another old jackoff opinion that if this track is what counts for "syncopated" in dance music in 2008 then I would also LOVE to hear what "more syncopated" means
perhaps it will include a BASS DURMP on the OFFBEATIES

I'm honestly a little surprised the snare on the offbeat of 2 still counts for anything, I guess. I've always thought it was just obnoxious outside of jungle/dnb

Well it's not like "wow this is the most syncopated music ever", but it's more syncopated than mainstream house, speed garage or bassline, let's put it that way. Given the hyper-stiffness of bassline in particular, it's interesting to see the syncopation/carribean vibe of this stuff emerging as its point of distinction from "funky house" in the broad sense.
When I say "more syncopated" I'm thinking of 2001-era soca-beat 2-step basically - see stuff like TJ Cases's "One By One", or Bump & Flex dub mixes from that period.
Not so much this track, but other Crazy Cousinz tracks strike me as verging on broken beat - esp. the broken beat-like vocal housey tracks Zed Bias was making circa 2002.
Actually there's a kind of back-to-early-2002 feel across the whole post-UK Garage spectrum, e.g.
- "Wearing My Rolex" sounds a bit like "Rush The DJ", "Standard Flow" etc.
- Tectonic/Punch Drunk dubstep reviving the first Horsepower Productions album, 2562 reviving Zed Bias (in a different, "deeper", and more substantially syncopated way than funky house does).
- Bassline sounding like "Dutty", and also like El-Tuff remixes.
Of course early 2002 (as 2-step was losing its grip as the reigning sound, but before the fully-fledged emergence of grime) was the last time this cluster of styles was really not quite clear as to where it was going, so a return to this temporary impasse makes sense.

Apart from the vocals this tune sound more like something coming out of the Spanish scene. Like this maybe.

The Marcus Nasty funky house DJ set on DejaVu FM that Martin Clark talks about and links to here is sick.
There's a track in the first section that actually sounds 95% of the way to my dreams for the genre, halfway between TJ Cases' "One By One" and Davinche's old 'R&G' productions ("Leave Me Alone", "Mr. DJ" etc.). But the whole thing is really exciting and vibey feeling.
Martin's right as well when he says that this stuff sounds more exciting with MCs chatting over the top.
― Tim F, Saturday, 3 May 2008 13:15 (8 years ago) Permalink
I cannot stop listening to this Marcus Nasty set. If you've wondering how on earth "funky house" can form it's own distinct genre you've gotta check it, I've never heard a house set that captures this specific vibe. It's really making me flash back to 2-step in the best possible way (i.e. the feel rather than the specific sound).

I got to say that I think I prefer the kyla to "bongo jam" but anyways...
Re: buying records - Rinse are putting out a Supa D mix CD and the blurb that comes with it says this is the first time any of these are getting a release of any sort. The Kyla original (prod by paleface) is getting a rerelease on Ministry this year so they might put the Crazy Cousinz mix on that...
― J@cob, Monday, 5 May 2008 09:59 (8 years ago) Permalink
Jacob "Bongo Jam" sounds fairly pasty on myspace, on marcus nasty's mix it sounds awesome. Mind you the Kyra track improves from myspace to mix by roughly the same margin.
― Tim F, Monday, 5 May 2008 10:15 (8 years ago) Permalink
Yeah I heard both on his mix too - and I completely agree. I just like the sexualness of the Kyla track which makes it the kind of song people will really get into in that leather shoes and designer shirts garage type environment. Every time I hear it I can really picture that scene, although the picture in my head probably has way too much moschino for it to be relevant to 2008. Bongo Jam straddles a line between goofiness, seriousness and Manu Chao that makes it totally dependent on mix context to work. No bad thing that, but I can see it sounding horribly cheesy 90% of the time, especially on radio.
― J@cob, Monday, 5 May 2008 10:24 (8 years ago) Permalink
Ha that's true but, y'know, go goofiness!
I'm hoping to start seeing proper Caribbean crossover stuff soon. I wonder if the ragga-ish version of "Calabria" is big in this scene.

Two more recommendations:
1) Sticky - How Very Dare You
Yes, that Sticky! And this isn't too far from what he was doing circa 2002, great ridiculous diva vocals, huge bass drop, clattering breakbeaty rhythms. Not 4X4 at all but definitely "funky house". Love it.
1) Seany B - Stomper
This reminds me a bit of my beloved "Are You Really From The Ends (VIP Remix)" - stomping and insatiable as the title suggests. Very big 4X4 kick but with all these awesome bongo flutters and counter-rhythms.

myspace rip of 'bongo jam', if anyone's interested. produced by flukes of wifey riddim fame btw!
not really relevant to this thread but i'm liking sticky's 'i'm in love'. first song on his myspace. 'mr dj' was another one of his tunes more in the funky vein.

nah good read on d40's part though, tbrr i do semi-seriously feel like funky in its essence has been proven to be an ineffable mystery known or remembered by like maybe ten ppl in the world so i'm actually kind of intrigued by the ways it will get burped up even if it is to be by this canadian dickwad who clearly deserves assassination. perhaps not even but especially given he is a fresh-eyed (bc avaricious) foreign element - from what i can see this news has been well received by the uk with what seems to me a telling tinge of relief/release
do i like it?... it's a vibe idk i'm not dismissing. i am generally more wary than ever before of holding onto the past in cancerous ways. young ppl are not me and me ppl are dead or as good as so pick the bones out of that
honestly i have previously toyed with suggesting an actual funky revival is real and in the fleeting offing (see disclosure thread), or rather a kind of more afro-tribal-positive proto-bruk beat subconscious moodboard pool at least, but... it's like ppl are drawing a blank at it, like the constructive materials are put in place but the je ne sais quoi is missing and they know it. a full mandate would be like the funkysouls messageboard version. all of which quite fitting bc funky in its original form already inherently carried a complicated bundle of nostalgic nuance (see several thousand vintage posts upthread lol jokes on u)

yeah i like this, i was just making a joke.
as far as drake songs go, i much prefer something like this than to all the chest-thumping hyper-masculine shit he's released in the last year-plus. "take care" is def one of his only songs that has really aged well imo. he's def doing a heavy ramriddlz thing here which is kinda wack objectively but i think he sounds good floating stupid sing-song come ons over warm, clubby beats like this. i've found myself of the position that his part on "work" is essential. as far as "one dance" goes i don't think the way they sample the original hook works at all, they should have just left it off.
& as david says i'm more offended by him giving wizkid a credited feature despite his voice being barely audible, it smacks of a grab for tastemaker cred w/o putting much skin in the game
― J0rdan S., Wednesday, 6 April 2016 05:58 (2 months ago) Permalink
there was some other song recently that did this same sorta thing & i'm forgetting it now, but the way drake uses wizkid on this ("garnish" is a pretty good comparison) reminds me of jamie xx only using popcaan as an accent (maybe literally lol) on "good times" & makes me wonder if that song will spawn some imitators

based on the itunes sample of this i can listen to the "do you mind" sample just kinda arrives and does its thing with no particularly meaningful relationship to the rest of the song, on an execution level it's not as strong as "take care".
I don't think the legacy of uk funky particularly needs defending though - esp. given most people were always and forever wrong about it regardless.

i've had the "ooh a uk funky revival would be amazing, scene burned out too soon" conversation so many times in the past half decade but it's not as if people haven't been constantly trying! just that the ineffable magic hasn't been there (listening to the vocal tunes off the new roska and lil silva eps now and, like, they're alright i guess, always nice to hear nyah, as it was on that trc track last year, but none of these are "do you mind" or "frontline" level and everyone knows it)
aside from "one dance" being the usual drizzly dreck that doesn't even make especially good use of its source material (that slight slowing down of the tempo is going to drive me absolutely insane if this song becomes somewhat ubiquitous) it feels weird in the same way that american indie anglophilia always felt slightly creepy, drake's approach to the uk and nigeria is appropriative not just in the social justice way but in the usual clumsy middle-class grasping for a cool that isn't yours and wasn't yours ever, and oddly out of step with where the uk scene's nostalgia is actually at right now (ukg)
