Bringing that gritty funk from the mean streets of Vancouver.

I'm torn between my desire to hate on the Red Bull Music Academy and my desire to give them a thumbs up for giving away free FLACs.

If EDM is this decade's alternative rock, does that make Skrillex: Eddie Vedder?

My mate Sully was good enough to pop down and do a set for us on Saturday. I may be biased, but the guy needs his own Fabric cd - very cool blends of uk bass and us-style house, lots of cut-up mixes etc.

I know dungeon dubstep is backward looking and not very exciting to most but I'm determined to plumb the depths.

Ok this isn't dungeon, but it's weird and good.

Josiah Alan, Thursday, 14 June 2012 14:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

that's cool but also almost entirely based on what is known in my circle as 'the forbidden rhythm'

40oz of tears (Jordan), Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

What kick on the 1 and 2 and snare on the 3 ?

Josiah Alan, Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

is that the lambada rhythm?

the late great, Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

This one? Sounds sort of like a clave, slower reggaeton kind of thing.

Josiah Alan, Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

Swindle is probably referencing soca more than anything but I'm not 100% sure on that.

Josiah Alan, Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

Speaking of latin rhythms and dubstep, so psyched for the new Mala album.

Josiah Alan, Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

da da da-da da

Seriously listen to the last minute and a half on that one.

Josiah Alan, Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

forbidden rhythm =

1   2   3   4
x-x-xx-x-x-xx-x-
???

they loooovin the crut (The Reverend), Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

super curious why it's forbidden

the late great, Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

yup, especially the first half:

1 2 3
x-x-xx-x-

it's like the go-to unfunky clave for fake latin beats. sure it can be voiced well or disguised/extended but i try to stay away from it when possible.

40oz of tears (Jordan), Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

aka 'the white man's rhythm'

40oz of tears (Jordan), Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

is there a link to an mp3 where i can hear that rhythm? i am terrible at reading tab for beats.

the late great, Thursday, 14 June 2012 16:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

It works well in that track.

they loooovin the crut (The Reverend), Thursday, 14 June 2012 16:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah agreed.

my mind is going blank for classic examples but i will post one when i think of it.

40oz of tears (Jordan), Thursday, 14 June 2012 16:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

Those mala tracks sound great. I was wondering what he's been up to, so bring on the album.

Hennesy Williams (EDB), Thursday, 14 June 2012 20:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

I guess I should listen to those Mala tracks now. I only had time to listen to one track before I left for work and I was intrigued by the forbidden rhythm, which now that I think of it, might be kind of similar to a montuno rhythm in how it switches from on- to off-beat?

they loooovin the crut (The Reverend), Friday, 15 June 2012 01:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

ha ok, here is an audio example of the forbidden rhythm: www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=h3JFEfdK_Ls#t=145s

40oz of tears (Jordan), Friday, 15 June 2012 13:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

don't know why that didn't embed, but check the piano lick in chorus of billy joel's 'my life'.

40oz of tears (Jordan), Friday, 15 June 2012 13:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

ha

they loooovin the crut (The Reverend), Friday, 15 June 2012 19:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think the difference is it being just one layer of polyrhythm in the Swindle versus being the sole point of rhythmic interest in the Billy Joel.

they loooovin the crut (The Reverend), Friday, 15 June 2012 19:18 (2 years ago) Permalink

can't believe nobody's ever sampled the first minute of that billy joel track, never heard that part before

the late great, Friday, 15 June 2012 19:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

oh, you're just talking about the hat rhythm at the beginning of the swindle track?

bum bum badabum bum?

the late great, Friday, 15 June 2012 19:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

can't believe nobody's ever sampled the first minute of that billy joel track, never heard that part before

had the same thought

oh, you're just talking about the hat rhythm at the beginning of the swindle track?

nah, the main handclap rhythm that comes in at :38 and then gets passed around to the bass > synths > everything

40oz of tears (Jordan), Friday, 15 June 2012 19:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

heh that rhythm is quite overused in grime

the late great, Friday, 15 June 2012 19:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

i mean ffs how often do you hear a wide-open break like that?

Finding the sudden popularity of "EDM" sort of depressing, but not nearly as depressing as all the crappy articles popping up in my Facebook page. This doesn't feel like winning.

Let's combine all the worst excesses of disco, rave and festival cultures and call it a trend.

Josiah Alan, Wednesday, 20 June 2012 04:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

Need some easy listening music to relax.

Josiah Alan, Wednesday, 20 June 2012 04:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

super bangin

This might have a little crossover with the Interzone Bubblers thread, but the new LOL Boys Enter the Unknown mix for UTTU is pretty stunning: http://boomkat.com/cds/533842-lol-boys-enter-the-unknown

It's got a lot of stuff going on in the mix but what strikes me most is how it reminds me a lot of 92/93 hardcore.

matt damon & the jb's (the anephric project), Tuesday, 3 July 2012 16:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

"Moments In Heartbreak" sounded better the first time I heard it:

But yeah, UTTU really is a great label.

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 3 July 2012 22:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

some nice rave vibe here

I absolutely refuse anything that wasn't made in Atlanta "trap" music.
