Grime is /Bleep/
oh grime is bleep is it?
didn't release a genre with no visual aesthetic could be bleep.
Some nice Dub Techno
Also some Tech House or whatever that is
Reminder that this is the best Omar-S track
Anyone still remember Floating Points? This EP is so awesome, and imo very original
the guy released a single literally like today and it's been a major point of discussion for weeks lol
but yes shadows EP is one of my favourite releases of the past few years, no doubt
What's /bleep/'s thoughts on the new Proxima record? A lot of it really threw me for a loop, but overall I found it to be incredibly rewarding listen for an album I had no idea was even set for release. fucking shitty Tempa marketing.
the best of the innervision lot, but still, fuck innervisions. well actually, henrik schwarz and recondite are the best of the lot, but they obviously aren't featured on the best dj list.
i'm not american. i just explained to him that saying "bait hip hop" just means "hip hip which is bait"
"bait" is slang in the uk for "obvious" so it just means "obvious hip hop" ie hip hop which is popular and commonly played
And there was me thinking bait was used in fishing.
yeah, i like em. of that only seen jkenzo dj recently but he was just doing his dubstep ting. detboi is wicked as well but does he dj?
it's just like my favourite thing to go and dance to these days. i mean occasionally it gets dropped into other people's sets and everyone goes nuts. i wanna find a full night of it tho
yeah, i know what u mean. like what hackney parrot was for ages haha
just wanna see what a full set is like tho some time. most i've heard was benton did like 15 mins of it str8 at one of those rinse brick lane pop up nights and it was pretty mental
seeing mella dee next friday at fabric so we'll see what he brings
special request at boomtown did a good half hour of it, then the second half was ridiculous 175 jungle
also my mate was looking at special request's slot on the program earlier that day and said 'who do you think the special request will be? i'm hoping camo and krooked'
cool. it'll probably be the same as usual tho. i wanna find a dj that plays it all night
nice. thanks. not seen him before. kinda conflicted on what to do on my friday now. check out sully in brixton or go to the ram night at fabric. been to a lot of ram nights but chase and status at fabric might just be too much madness to pass up. ugh, why is like so difficult?
it's small. has a funktion one. filled with smoke. security are really nice. the ceiling is low enough to touch. books big djs. minimal lights. photos aren't allowed. they don't over fill it. you actually have room to dance and not be crushed. entry is cheap. crowd is always completely loved up. people don't stare at the dj. hugs off strangers. dancing with strangers. nice chats. people will buy each other drinks and stuff
never had a bad night there
deffo my "go to"

Is there a subgenre of /bleep/ that rejects anachronistic tropes such as vinyl and 4/4 rhythms?
You can dance to 7/16 you know.
Basically Intelligent Bleep
I usually go upfront, to be closer from the sound, and because I usually have enough room for myself. I like to see what the DJ actually look like, see what he's doing, but I don't spend my time watching him, and that never stop me from interacting with other people.
also i've found that if one doesn't dj watch you start to notice that you're seeing some of the same people night to night and u can get talking and make friends with them and stuff. like you're never gonna make that meaningful relationships from clubbing but it's cool to see someone you know and ask them what they've been up to and how their nights going and stuff
but yeah, it doesn't really matter. just do what u want innit. that's the most important thing
It's not that popular tracks are bad. For me it's that
1. A lot of the fans of that kind of thing/the stuff Oneman plays are bellends, and I don't want to go places where everyone is a bellend
2. If I go to see a DJ I want it to be pretty much all dance music, not house tracks interspersed with hip hop
nah, it's just like tracks that you've heard a million times can get boring. anyone can make a set comprised of "essential bangers" or w/ever and drop it and people will sort of like it but it's so much more rewarding to go to a night where the dj is kinda challenging you and playing music on the edges of what you'd normally hear and it ends up blowing your mind
i suppose this is a culture difference yes. because as an american u probably very rarely get to go clubbing. but in places where clubbing is the norm, it gets kinda boring when you've heard a tune for the 20th time or w/ever. even if it is technically a good track
what nights u been to then recently m8?
americans in these threads are constantly complaining that they'd love to go clubbing but there is nowhere for them to go that plays /bleep/ music
>I don't want to go places where everyone is a bellend
so it has less to do with his abilities to DJ and select and more about the crowd? I can understand that
No i live in a pretty good area where DJ Pierre plays 2-3 times a month, he brought Theo Parrish and Glen Underground last month which was cool.
I dunno I would love to see Oneman. I like hip-hop, RnB, house, techno. All that biz in one set would be cool
>as an american u probably very rarely get to go clubbing
this shit again...
not even humorous anymore
when was that? i suppose in my original point what is important is the frequency. like if u don't go clubbing very often that tunes probably don't seem to be overplayed because u won't be hearing them that often
in the uk for instance, most people i know go clubbing twice a week. sometimes three times and once at a minimum. so obviously we're gonna have to deal with hearing stuff too often
>most people i know go clubbing twice a week. sometimes three times and once at a minimum
how fucking rich are your friends? unless some of the nights they go to are your standard shit student nights, that is just not feasible for most people. pretty much everyone i know is big into dance music but once a week is standard, usually less
richer than average tbh
but clubbing doesn't have to be expensive. get ur tickets in advanced and entry is usually only £10 or something
u wanna do drugs, buy em online. can get some nicely dosed eccies for only like £5 each
if u wanna drink just buy tins from the supermarket and hav em at a m8s first or go to a cheap pub. then maybe have a tin or two on the way. maybe split some weed if you want. and buy just a drink or two inside. because like tbh if you're into your music, and you're going to good clubs, you shouldn't really need to get fucked up to have fun and dance
why do you think it's expensive?
because when you have a budget of like £80-90 a week and a night out ends up costing at least £20, doing it more than once a week is just a stupid idea. this is a very normal thing, going OUT out 2/3 times a week is not normal unless youre not in education or work
Can you guys recommend artists, lps or eps that evoke a feeling of the middle east?
Not something like Muslimgauze, but 'traditional' bleeps, proper bangers but maybe islam/arab themed?
For some reason I really like that aesthetic, not even a mudslime myself.
no, drum and bass is a genre that developed out of jungle in like '95/'96 when people looked for a straighter, more militant, mechanical groove. so the breaks were programmed to have a more regular repeated drum pattern, and most of the elements apart from the basslines were stripped back, including all the ragga samples etc.
>tfw clubs near me almost always shut at 5, occasionally 6, but the other night at Perc Trax label showcase at 3:30, because the venue didn't think there were enough people in the club to make it worth staying open, money-wise
I'm guessing you're all rich kiddies either NEET or doing some doss subject at uni with no other interests then?
How do you find the time, money or stamina? I'm still feeling a bit rough from Saturday night, but I am closer to 30 than 18 and I tend to drink my own body weight in beer when I go out...
>tfw leaving clubs mid-morning or later disorientated and stinking and having to mingle with Normal People doing Normal things
I left a club at 11am once and it was about 25 C outside. Horrendous.
Thats why they invented little white pills.
All nighters on Saturday, back to school on Monday.
What does /bleep/ think of the new Culprate album that came out today?
I can still do all nighters on alcohol alone and get up on Monday. I feel like shit, but it's possible.
Pills, mandy, whatever, tend to have a longer effect on me and I'd probably be in an even worse state on Monday morning. It has been a while since I've done anything stronger on a night out though.
I have bad memories of having to help a cocaine comedown with poppers.
i buy mine off evolution. agora is also meant to be good
you're a student then? i'm in full time work. so i just spend my money on clubbing like i would on any other hobby, of which i don't have many. £40 a week's not that much to do something that you love. like half my other raving mates are working as well, the other half are mostly in their final years of uni. they somehow manage. get a part time job or be more frugal in other parts of your life? idk
its sick as hell and there is no id on it anywhere in spite of this set being almost two years old. fuck this gay earth. fuckin fags on mixesdb prioritized whining about "muh sloppy mixing" over looking for the track
To the people getting upset about names missing from the list, you have to remember that a huge amount of these votes come from Ibiza and festivals, because that's where RA's core demographic is.
Wow fucking thank you, I'm glad someone else realises that he's not a great DJ. People always bunch together him Ben and Jackmaster those boys aren't even in the same league.
And Ben UFO isn't even the best DJ in his crew.
lmfao the top five is all tech house. this is the actual taste of ra readers, who unironically think they're sacred guardians of good taste because they're very vocal about not liking EDM
Hello everyone i'm new to your thread
Can you please post some good tracks/albums that similar to this:
really rated pearson sound every time i've seen him
except for the time he dropped something from untrue at peak time. i loved it but it also killed the energy, kind of a bad move tbh
Official Hessle Audio producer ratings
S-Tier : Pangaea
A-Tier : Pearson Sound, Objekt, Elgato
B-Tier : Joe, Blawan, Bruce
C-Tier : Bandshell, Pev
D-Tier : James Blake, Cosmin TRG
E-Tier : Untold (lmao)
Woah, did I find my AOTY or what. This thing is brilliant and already a second wonderful Scissor & Thread album this year.
>C-tier : Bandshell, Pev
lmao dance til the police come is one of the biggest tracks on that label. in fact he is one of the most consistent and forward thinking producers to ever come out of the south west... bet youre the same guy who said pev is 'lad techno'
I only put Objekt in tier A because Cactus is brostep. I know it's soon going to be fashionable to hate on Objekt because he's so unanimously liked but porcupine is a better track than pev's entire output. sorry pal
cactus isn't brostep, it's a parody of brostep.
and before you try and start the whole argument again, here's source
>When I wrote Cactus (this was actually in 2010, before my first record even came out) I literally thought of it as a comedy song, an ode to Rusko if you like
explain how pev is any of those three adjectives then
he is literally the opposite of those things, he has a signature sound that no one else has managed to copy. he manages to blend genres while keeping things fresh and rhythmically interesting as well. he was one of the first producers to push dubstep's boundaries and he's continuing this experimentation to this day. completely not a bog standard producer
you were probably still having arguments about animal collective on this board when i first did. he makes good tracks but if you think he's more innovative or influential than the producers i put above him you're fucking retarded
Peverelist is actually incredibly influential and innovative... at least, far more than Joe, Blawan, Bruce, Elgato, and probably more influential than Objekt and possibly Pearson Sound as well... his early stuff changed a lot of tastes and styles in the dubstep scene. And the livity sound stuff has been really influential as well.
>if you think he's more innovative or influential than the producers i put above him you're fucking retarded
cant stop laughing
fucking idiot looooooool
look up the word "bristol" and you will find the word "peverelist" next to it
do some reading m8 you dont have an inkling
i absolutely agree, not only they are finally properly appreciated by the venerable ra top 100 but they've also released classics such as uuuhhhh laurent garnier's awful comeback ep in 2008
Since you are already asking about oldskool hardcore, I can use you to dump this playlist of unreleased hardcore tracks I came across a few days ago.
Some nice stuff in there, 93/94 style
i don't but here's an essential /bleep/ pic
