Vice of course...
as they are Northen people in it Vice have put subtitles on it
what the fuck is up with the subtitles? Oh silly Vice magazine.
they follow the blackout crew to an underage live set in Scarborough and its full to the brim with screaming kids.
yeah thanks, solid 3/10 effort
I would give you a 5 for that I'm still luaghing.
This scene is serreal its full of really young kids, screaming teenage girls, people on smack and massive massive meat heads with no tops on pumped full of steroids.
most of the people in it were surprisingly nice
even the massive scarey looking sterioded up slightly gay fake tanned chav hybrids come accross realy friendly when they are all over each other pilled up in the club.
i was laughing so hard the entire way through. subtitles are the icing on the cake
The subtitles are extra special esspecialy when they aint on for the southerner journalist guy but they are for the Donk MC's in the same conversation.
It is amazing though isn't it. Shall we arrange a DiS meat at Wigan Pier?
we should maybe meet up at one of the underage scarborough events as well just to get ourselves intergrated into the scene a little bit.
We can grab some cheap traners from T K Maxxx strap them to out knees and pretend we are 14 by crawling around and drinking wiki blue!
I'll put a donk on it
I think i love you jimitheexploder
about 100 times better, thanks jim! this is hilarious.
it made my morning fly by as well
know where to start. This is the most quotable thing since anchorman. Burnleys buzzin.
What drugs are popular?
"Cocaine, gear, well smack, cocaine, weed, heroin, E's, Everything Mainly. "
Tears in my eyes.
With a donk on at least. Those kids are way to cool for us Jam lets go down there and TRY and be as cool as them.
we could get our hands on some donk and bang it out my skoda and head down the sea front?
We could just put like a donk on something. Maybe the Ann Frank's rusty tank track? that'd work. We might need to like shave out heads and become... twats to blend in.
I'm not putting a donk on it
What about the Brap! Obama track? Surely we could put a donk on that?
the more stuff in that track the better
I;m off to put a banging donk on something.
I would let everyone know
That bouncer is hilarious.
"Some girl come up to me and said, someone's just bit me, and I just said oh right, coz y'know sometimes girls just bite themselves"
"He was being um what do you call it.......................... Cooperative."
and then when he is telling the story about threatening to pop someones eye out some guy came and seranaded him with the guitar. That place scares me heheheh
Its hardly the time or place to be busking for cash of them rough heads!
I would actually be shit scared to venture into that club, I'd be shaking nervously in the corner in my skinny jeans.
not on a donk night though but its pretty much always bad.
are for dumb Americans who can't understand UK accents...
its cos there are northeners, I'm one of them and I need subtitles in some parts of scarborough!
history lesson over ...
but if you wana go all hardcore continuum on it then yeah your right plus a little happy hardcore. Bouncy techno from scotland was just a cheesey version of the Belgian massively fast mad bouncy techno as well. Hardcore will have had a hand in it at some time no doubt. But who carse thats in the past its about the donk now.
but there was alot of really fast and dark techno coming out of belgum at the time on labels like R&S who released early Aphex Twin as well. My step bro knows more about it and usualy throw a couple of tracks in for a luagh when we DJ back to back. Some of it is so insane and intence, plus the odd track speeds up from like 130 bpm to about 190 out of know where.
I actually recognised one or two people walking into the pier
it looks like a laugh
really good, I was planning on doing a piece on the blackout crew and Donk for a music and horse racing blog im doing. Got to give them credit for what they are doing and the community centre at the heart of the production.
Shame more girls don't dress like the Donk girls at indie gigs, they seem like more fun than talking about badges, fanzines and The Tindersticks.
sorry dis ladys heheheh
when they say he's wearing pixie shoes before they donk him up
Seriously though...I've never seen so many small penises gathered inside one arena
it's fun to see all the kids who were expelled from school again
I mean, donk is really shit, isn't it? We all see that. But they go and they do this documentary and they make a little more sympathetic towards the people making the music, if not the scene in general.
Plus, some great lines in that.
The fact that these kids are being creative, trying to better themselves, creating a sense of community and enjoying themselves comes across alongside the macho posturing, spray tans and terrible, terrible music.
they seem to be more positive compared to the grime scene down south which is basicaly a dance music with mc's as well.
Its so cool to see all that fun and passion coming out it kinda shows how powerful and important the music is. You don't get that kind of passion at gigs for indie bands.
I can see why people enjoy it, if it's your thing then wigan pier would be amazing. Then again i'm sure that a lot of people would say the same thing about your music tastes.
I would've liked to have seen more about them making the music. Also two years ago Jamie used to dress in that ironic rude boy style.
that was meant for Lemonbrick above
put a donk on it, it were well good.
the kids bang it out of their mobile phones up north
its pretty much how it is its really funny though but its not meant to be a joke.
we did not put a donk on it. maybe we should have done.
Cheers jimi for bringing it to our attention! Donk!
"Bolton - Mecca of Donk"
that was actually a really grim and depressing documentry
Q"is it fair to say that this place is the mecca of donk, the heart of donk?"
A"yeah, it's fair to say that this is the mecca of donk, the heart of donk"
the donk producer incredibly seriously talking about how he reconstructs all the sounds around a donk when he puts a donk on a track. and how some producers just throw a donk over the top.. "but that'll sound SHIIIITE". amazing
he's a pro man the next timberland... Timberdonk... Donkland...
my laughter was as relentless as a donk.
"heart of donkness"
blackout crew better be playing sonar, although i guess the donk is probably best in its natural environment of the north.
I'm gonna put a donk on it!
– nice doco – I hated it at the start – the voice over is some of the worst scripting I’ve heard (I thought it was a joke at the start)– and the presenter is no good, it’s not that I didn’t like him, but he just wasn’t good. But I warmed to it by the end (and him a little) – the last scene in the lads front room is where it starts getting interesting….seeing what Donk has given these guys. It’s interesting how patronising some of the comments above seem, or maybe I’m reading them wrong… they (the blackout crew) must have a bit of dosh behind them. Some of their promo’s on you tube are produced to a high standard, and video promos are really expensive. So someone has invested, and is wisely staying out of it….it would have been interesting to see who, and why they invested and if the scene is making any money….the story being told is a little one dimensional, although it tries. It wasn’t shot well, it could have looked amazing, without much more effort –and it’s a shame it wasn’t a bit longer – so we got to really know the guys - but that really is a complement…
1) no idea, never come across it ever.
2) It's about as big as that kinda happy hardcore dance music has been for years and years as far as I can tell. There was always chavy type kids bangin that kinda thing out on phones round my way, like the young uns at colleges and stuff would play it and have a lil mc session to it.
3) Dubstep is global already, people all pver the world are making it and there are raves all over the globe now. Doubt donk will get any bigger than say happy hardcore did, which means pretty huge I guess as you see TV adverts for it.
I've never come across donk though in real life, I'm not a teenage girl anymore...
I'm going to DMZ / Exodus in Leeds on the weekend I'm so hyped for it :D
I have a bit of pipe and a table tennis bat out the back.
a digeridoo sped up.
Watched this last night,the bouncer guy reminded me of max and paddy,i remember bein 13-14 and listenin to lots of dutch hardcore,paul elstak and lenny dee etc,lenny dee was really heavy gabba/hardcore,used to go and see scottish dj marc smith alot at fury murrays in glasgow,f*ckin loved it at the time but i cant bear to listen to it now.
It wouldn't have become nationally known (Put A Donk On It wasn't a hit, after all) were it not for people on message boards exchanging the video's YouTube URL and since then blogs going "you know what? (credible artist) need a donk on it!!" It's like the way you can go on about funky's rise all you want, but Bongo Jam is only nationally famous because Harry Hill took the piss.
its not meant to be taken serriously, I don't think any of the donk crews hang abotu stroking their chins going I hope this music doesnt become a bit of fun or something. It's really fast cheesey music with a massive fucking DONK on it. The tracks are meant to bring out hummor its kind of part of the ethos.
I still dont think many people know about funky even if harry hill enjoyed the bongo jam hehehe Even though I here Crazy Cousins Do You Mind all over the telly adverts now.
just fun innit
Thank you, that was brilliant. I started off liking it taking the piss, but ended it with admiration for the small group of people who have created this highly localised scene that people live for. I'd love it if anything I made got that kind of response from people anywhere.
Although, the music is obviously shit and the bit where that bouncers talking about popping out some blokes eyes as a mental busker starts performing to camera is LOLZ!!!
I'd love to see a documentary on just him.
i heard an uncensored or 'directors cut' will be coming out eventually which is loads better..
fascinating stuff. That bouncer is unbelievable! "sometimes girls just bite themselves". Bloody hell. Serious laffs when they call him Noddy too!
Time to get myself some sweet Gio Goi threads I reckon..
in that it's a pretty positive thing. The music remains shite but as someone said above, it's full-on simple dance music, it's not meant to be pored over.
I found the presenter really annoying. Annoying posho delivery, stupid fucking boater shoes (FUCK OFF BOATER SHOES) and a sneery patronising tone for too much of it. When he was actually talking to the participants he seemed fine, but too sneery off it.
Blackout Crew >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> the Vice ethos and their hack contributors.
any genra where steroids are the drug of choice will most likely struggle to be good. In any way.
I thought his questions about 'is it mainly white people who listen to Donk' were a bit strange though. I was well scared of the girl whose 15th birthday party it was. That youth centre/recording studio is ace though, kudos to the guy who runs that, I like Blackout Crew a lot more now that I've seen them as actual people rather than just something my little bro laughs at on Channel U.
Even if they haven't quite understood it.
