"the record i sold to you was out of the hood"


I just received my copy of this:



I highly recommend it. It's a return to Azymuth's root Jazz Funk sound, not in an overproduced or cheesy way either. Check it:

"a living pavement of aborted bastards"


I don't wanna be a total shill, but because a few people here might be into it: my new record as the Nerve Institute is coming out May 20 on Altrock in Milan (altrock.it). You can hear a few bits at myspace.com/thenerveinstitute, and here's a Kate Bush thing I did during the sessions but didn't put on the LP:

Just downloaded it. The fact that this group is making the same music after all this time and hasn't fallen off at all is nuts. Just so amazing.

Uhmm, maybe about 3 people here will be interested...

Because the ability to mix coherently between the best of UK funky, house, grime, juke, kwaito, jungle, and electro while still nominally looking like bass-led rude pirate house is a wonderfully rare moment of creativity and freedom-- the kind of freedom people find in the most fruitful-but-fleeting moments of great genres. Put in simple, indivisible terms: this stuff is really, really fun right now.


Various hyperlinks on og page.
I think that I agree with Kode-9's assesment that the music is in a holding pattern right now, and frankly I don't think 2011 is as big a year as 2009, just that more people are discovering these sounds.


Thanks for posting the article. Nice read,

Despite all the genre postulating, I think the part that I bolded is most important.

For serato I have a folder called "Bassline", and that contains half of the artists mentioned here. The other folder is called "future beat" and it contains some of the other half and some overlap between artists. Its easier just to lump it all together and get down to it!

The best thing about this aggregate of new music all the artists are feeding off each other and the DJs mixing and matching between them all to make some really nice sounding mixes and sets. The whole point is that its new and exciting imo.

I think martin summarised quite well what's going on over here, and maybe a bit in some other places around the world. it's definitely a brilliant time, and yes the word "dubstep" has really become synonymous with something tragic that no one in their right mind would want to play at a rave. what we have now is similar to what was going on in 1988, a huge number of influences being thrown in the pot. That scene has never been as good or as varied to my ear. The advent of Nightslugs a couple of years ago, the birth of UK Funky and the dissolution of FWD as a purely "dubstep" party was the beginning of this process. Obviously it's harder to be outstanding or catch hype in a scene thats more diverse and less "the next big thing", but that has done a lot for the music, and for the music makers, and opening the ears of the audience.

Jamie Woon may have the worst album that any knowledgeable person has recommended this year.


Other good new stuff this year includes DJ Shadow - I Gotta Rokk , Dark Sky - Ghost Notes, Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo - Cotonou Club, Danger Mouse and Danial Luppi - Rome.....

Zomby does Burial



I picked this up, and actually like it more than most tunes by Burial. On the one hand, it could easily be dismissed as muzaky trip-hop (inoffensive to the ear and soothing tones), but on the other if you pump it up loud enough there's enough going on to hold your attention (it has that skippy quality to it that I like about some post-dubstep-future-bass-blah-music).

Plus... the packaging and etched b-side is great!

Yeah I thought it was interesting that, according to the gospel that is the comments on that YouTube post, Zomby originally did the track for Burial hence the stylistic choices made. To me, while it definitely has a Burial 'feel', it has an urgency to it that is very un-Burial, plus agree that it sounds great blasted out.

Nick, only listened to the full thing a couple of times and am enjoying its bits and pieces approach. Seems like a slightly strange release to put out on a major label as much of it seems like unfinished experiments than full tracks but am still appreciating it. Also like the way that every new release by him sounds pretty different from the one before.

its well worth reading the self-titled interview, he comes across as pretty genial for a bloke that lives at home with his mum with nowt but a parrot and a bag of weed for company. dedication turns out to be about the passing of his father. http://www.self-titledmag.com/home/2011/06/29/the-self-titled-interview-zomby/

This is hands-down the best thing I've heard in the last five or six years.

About Group - Don't Worry by DominoRecordCo

If someone had asked me to imagine what a band would sound like if they comprised the lead singer from Hot Chip, a former Derek Bailey sideman, a member of Spiritualized and the drummer from This Heat (the latter three all with backgrounds in free improv), the last thing on earth I'd have said would have been The Band.



hey, thanks for the heads up, i??ve just unpacked the LP and its sounding really great! actually just listening to it.... thx


I love the theo parrish remix of about group, worth a check.

Will check the Zomby interview when I get the chance, and I was unsure if the b-side of that About Group remix single was the better!

Also recently went out and put some money into a Strutter's pocket:



Contructive crit time: Have only listened to it once so far, and the first three or so tracks blend into each other beautifully, but then there's a track so non-descript that it had me wondering what it was doing on there... will need to listen again and ID which one it was. Proper speakers sorted this out!

Overall though, very nice, but knowing that you (INVRS) came on here a while back asking about alternative tracks for the stuff you couldn't licence, I wondered which tracks were shoe-horned in as replacements, and where...

Really great interview and, I have to say, not what I expected. Surprising list of artists he mentions in there as well, seems that his general tastes are more in tune with mine than I would expect listening to Dedication.

B/w After hearing his hardcore tribute , would love to hear his unreleased jungle album.
