In other Olde News, getting myself better acquainted with 5 years of Hyperdub, this is just killing me/has made me reconsider my ambivalence to a lot of Hyperdub stuff.

EDB, Wednesday, 3 February 2010 20:42 (ten years ago) link

In semi related matters, why Digidesign seems to have topped all sorts of 2009 lists but Purple City not so much? And I think I might prefer "Stash" from the Hyperdub Comp to both of them.

Then again, I only recently found out I like Joker, so...

Kode9's Nine Samurai. have always wondered where the tune came from, figured it was classical russian dudes. today i found out (and it's blindingly obvious) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047478/ (Kurosawa's Seven Samurai from 1954!, runs all the way through it in various guises)

so the new issue of woofah is out at last -

worth a read.
i miss reading about this sort of stuff in magazines.

tho i think some of the design cd be a bit better. not that its bad, but the whole glossy thing doesnt really seem right to me for some reason. i liked how it looked when it was all just black and white and looked a bit fanziney. so on the next issue id like to see it look more like a lovingly stapled photocopy with weird drawings of skream and benga or something.

titchy (titchyschneiderMk2), Thursday, 4 March 2010 17:19 (ten years ago) link

vex'd were on the breezeblock again last night previewing the new / old album (it only got half finished at the time, they've finished it off / padded it out with remixes). sounded great (although that may've been the old old tracks they included)

available on iplayer for another 7 days - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006wqb7

'live dubstep'

haven't seen a show yet and not sure how the concept works, do they really play those big basslines live or is it backing track stuff with a singer? Dunno how much of a novelty thing it is. Remember seeing some live dnb once that was great maybe could translate.

winter nights/early mornings are the ideal time for dubstep (even here in sunny south florida).

i've been in kind of a dubstep rut. darkstar -- to the extent it was dubstep at all (and i don't think it was) -- seemed undercooked to me. anything new and interesting out there?

Daniel, Esq., Saturday, 20 November 2010 12:12 (nine years ago) link

Darkstar was okay, not something I'd want to hear all the time. I'm enjoying James Blake's stuff, the new Horsepower Productions, that thing Scientist did where he dubs up tracks by Pinch and Jack Sparrow.

is this the scientist disc?

Daniel, Esq., Saturday, 20 November 2010 18:44 (nine years ago) link

'cause i notice two covers. the one from the emusic link looks like this one (rather than the one i initially posted above):

http://static.boomkat.com/images/388729/333.jpg

Daniel, Esq., Saturday, 20 November 2010 18:46 (nine years ago) link

It's two discs i think. One with the original tracks and the other with the dubs.

Number None, Saturday, 20 November 2010 18:51 (nine years ago) link

yeah I think the package comes with both sleeves... I know the 80s Scientist artwork is like uber-classic but the two above just make me feel nauseous. Album is OK, not brilliant

an exciting but non-alcoholic beverage (DJ Mencap), Saturday, 20 November 2010 19:07 (nine years ago) link

are earlier scientist discs "uber-classics"? i like some of his stuff, but never ever considered it on the level of, say, king tubby or scatch perry.

Daniel, Esq., Saturday, 20 November 2010 19:08 (nine years ago) link

Scientist *artwork*

(this^ owns though even if it's not a gamechanger per se)

an exciting but non-alcoholic beverage (DJ Mencap), Saturday, 20 November 2010 19:25 (nine years ago) link

"are earlier scientist discs "uber-classics"?"

They are really good, yeah (agree they are not really game-changing though). And artwork is def. amazing.

I'm glad that The Wire is covering Shackleton a lot recently. I really like his stuff.

he's kinda scaring me with the gregorian chant though

Most of you already now this by now, but Scuba - Triangulation is seriously the bidness!

It's actually kind of ridiculous how amazingly well this album flows. It manages to listen like a masterfully well sequenced mix; this makes me all the more excited to see him play here in a week!

EDB, Thursday, 23 December 2010 16:20 (nine years ago) link

The remix disc isn't bad either

Number None, Thursday, 23 December 2010 16:42 (nine years ago) link

Yeah I just got the double CD pack. Shall be listening to the remixes later. I've just heard the Deadbeat one thus far, but it's good.

this is actually a really good mala interview. maybe the best out of the ones ive read this year (much better/more specific than the one on factmag). i like him more after reading this.

The new LV album's got a track called "Northern Line" which I'll never be able to get out my head when getting on the tube.

What you know about Kings Cross??

Can't wait to get this, even though I've heard the Quest tunes a billion times before and the last Silkie album underwhelmed me. These two together are straight fire.

Vahid did you ever hear their Uprooted live set from like 2008? One of my favourite sets ever.

Tim F, Sunday, 2 September 2012 21:39 (seven years ago) link

<3<3<3 Silkie

The Reverend, Tuesday, 4 September 2012 04:33 (seven years ago) link

yes and i liked it

it's going to sound corny but this is like the jacob's optical stairway of dubstep in places

the late great, Tuesday, 4 September 2012 04:58 (seven years ago) link

they are synth wizards

the late great, Tuesday, 4 September 2012 04:58 (seven years ago) link

Yeah Jacob's Optical Stairway are a good comparison.

I think also Bugz in the Attic at their best?

Tim F, Tuesday, 4 September 2012 05:35 (seven years ago) link

A POX of this vibe (across sub-genres) would be interesting.

Tim F, Tuesday, 4 September 2012 06:28 (seven years ago) link

i'm working on one but i think LHF would be up there too
