Terror Danjah & Ruby Lee Ryder - Full Attention (Original Mix)

Sounded great even as a crappy radio rip and positively awesome in its full hi-def glory.

that moment in the verses--2:45ish or so when the bass drops a half step and the synth line jumps up--is fuckin killer

and the weird subtle choir in the first chorus before the sub really kicks in is real cotton candy shit

When Champion ft. Ruby Lee Ryder's "Sensitivity" comes out we can maybe turn this into the general Ruby Lee appreciation thread.

god the combination of sheer prettiness and evil bass grind is awesome. i thought r&g was gonna be like this back in the day! haha i thought terror danjah was gonna do it back in the day too. WELL IT'S FINE NOW TOO

lex pretend, Saturday, 27 August 2011 12:18 (3 years ago) Permalink

Love the Ruby Lee bits in this not so keen on the bass drop, it kinda fucks up the energy for me by being a bit clunky and like a gerneric dubstep banger that we've all heard to many times. I really <3 Sensitivity with Champion though that's amazing. Her voice is awsome. Wanna hear more from her big time.

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 28 August 2011 05:14 (3 years ago) Permalink

What a lovely voice. I do agree with jimitheexploder about the bass drop in Full Attention, although the second time it comes in with her singing over it I think it makes more sense. Why couldn't the integration of dubstep sounds into pop sound more like this and less "token wobbley bit?"

ha ha ha ha jack my swag (boxedjoy), Sunday, 28 August 2011 08:56 (3 years ago) Permalink

Yeah what's secretly insane about this tune is how you gradually realise the song's been written over the bass drop section.

I prefer "Sensitivity" too but only because it's like song of the year.

Royal T's remix is in the Butterz Autumn Zip, it bangs hard and adds some energy to the beats which is a bonus. Oh yeah the accapela is in there too. Dunno if I prefer it to the original or not really but its well worth a shout.

Lee971 (Lee626), Friday, 25 May 2012 23:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

This is just one of those songs that I cannot figure out why it's such an earworm. It's just so much more than the sum of its parts. Kind of 90s DnB drums, grinding dubstep bass, kind of Massive Attack malevolent strings but I guess it's the vocal riff that pulls it all together, like she is so insistent and compelling it earworms like crazy!

I shouldn't keep bumping this thread coz I get it in my head every time I even see the title.

Dixie Narco Martenot (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Saturday, 26 May 2012 07:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah, it's amazing. it's easy to think that the appeal is primarily a product of the vocal, but the track is great too. thrown into relief by let me be the one, where the track is all that, but the vocal isn't quite there.

spextor vs bextor (contenderizer), Saturday, 26 May 2012 07:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

Listening to the a capella, and I think I've figured it out.

It's the subtle minor harmonies in the backing vocals that really highlight the bittersweet sadness of the main vocal riff.

Kinda buried in the song under all the wub and wobble, but when they're pulled out, it's like... wow. Just such proficiency and emotion. That there's this big, bouncy pop hook with all these undercurrents of sadness and yearning under it.

Can we start calling ppl like Ed Sheerhan and Chris Martin, um, "Songsters" then? I think this is a term that is needed.

Anyway, I'll give the Royal-T album a listen if Ruby Lee is on it.

The Kelvin Helmholtz Instability (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Monday, 17 September 2012 09:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

the other highlights for me were "cruel to be kind", "don't call me baby" and "music please"

lex pretend, Monday, 17 September 2012 10:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

Inside The Ride is ace as well. Not sure so much about the section where it gets a bit heads-down, from Gully Funk through to Missing Aurora.

I'm not as crazy about the Cheryl Cole remix as others but that's largely the song's fault rather than the remixer's.

Matt DC, Monday, 17 September 2012 10:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

"inside the ride" was a single a few months ago and the full version of "cool down" was the AA-side and all i could think, then and now, is how pointless and boring "inside the ride" is in comparison. why is "cool down", ie royal-t's masterpiece, not on this btw?

lex pretend, Monday, 17 September 2012 10:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

OK, no there IS a Terror Danjah album coming out on Hyperdub.

The 'Dark Crawler' single with Riko is big, there will be two other versions of the riddim on the album and I'm excited.

Mercer Finn, Tuesday, 18 September 2012 07:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

But then again, it seems like everyone who signs to Hyperdub lately puts out dark, thoughtful nightbus albums you can't really dance to, and I don't want Terror Danjah to do one of those. :-(

The Kelvin Helmholtz Instability (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Tuesday, 18 September 2012 08:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

He's already released an album on Hyperdub, two years ago. It's... okay, mostly the sort of dark spiderweb grime instrumentals he usually trades in. It could probably have done with more vocalists.

Everyone seems to consciously make their sound more boring for Hyperdub but Terror Danjah is probably a better fit for them than most. They're highly unlikely to release the overdue album of R&G bangers though, admittedly.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 18 September 2012 08:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

this is what this one is as well

lex pretend, Tuesday, 18 September 2012 08:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

'dark crawler' was typical hyperdub cringe. riko on the b-side however... woof

r|t|c, Tuesday, 18 September 2012 08:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

The more pertinent question is when there's going to be a Ruby Lee Ryder album, or at least a solo career or some sort. If Jessie Ware and Katy B deserve one the same goes here. Even Roses Gabor has a mixtape and a solo release coming out so the lack of movement around Ruby Lee is indefensible.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 18 September 2012 08:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

Oh, was Undeniable on Hyperdub? Doesn't sound like it. I thought he was on Planet Mu or Rephlex or something like that, but maybe that was a previous release. I'll shut up now.

I would like if Ruby Lee Ryder put out an album that followed in the footsteps of Katy B but I really don't need any more Jessie Ware or Emile Sande polished, electronica-flavoured ~thoughtfulness~ thanks.

roses gabor is p fun, why the 'even'

r|t|c, Tuesday, 18 September 2012 08:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

No she is pretty fun, but just seems lower profile than the others. I probably like 'Stupid' more than any collaborative track featuring any of the others, except the three big Ruby Lee tunes.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

'you're saved' is probably one of if not the most interesting central conceit i can think of in years but the whole thing is kinda halfbaked wan back of the bus singsong when it should crush ominously. bit of a shame really

i do like ryder generally but tbh there is something so crashingly boring about you lot automatically wibbling about the rarefied tremulous marmoreal diva, it is mad offputting yo

There's also a side-order of eyerolling about the prospect of Terror Danjah releasing ANOTHER album of Hyperdub instrumentals when he could at least have the good grace to rope in a shedload of MCs like the good lord intended.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

there are three "interludes" of MCs over the dark crawler beat, plus two r&g-style tracks with singers (meleka and ruby lee), and then a ton of instrumentals
