I opened my first DJ gig in ages this weekend with the Wookie Remix of Kinda Funky by Jammin aka Zinc as well but I cant find that on ye-tube.
Speed Garage often gets overlooked in favour of 2step but I love it just as much. Proper jungalised House vibes. I always play Ripgroove (obviously the Topcat vocal mix) when I DJ, never get tired of it. Here's a nice ruff speed garage mix:
and that is a wicked track, I'm not very well up on speed garage I think I bought a bit but never realy dug to deep. I've only really got on top of 2-step the last few years after mostly ignoring it for breakbeaty stuff and techno at the time apart from the odd bit here and there.
So much hype, its basically perfect dance music.
Booo by Miss Dynamite Ft. Sticky
Oi! by More Fire Crew
Pow by Leathal B
you are literally the man!
well I didnt want anyone coming in and sayin no it was shit it was all casualty remixes and...
which is no bad thing in my book really.
I was learning to DJ when it all kicked off and I was into my breakbeat so I have lots of the breakbeat garage stuff. A week wouldn't go by without me grabbing a Zinc 12" under some random name.
and you reminded me that I left out Steve Gurley.
Steve FUCKIN! Gurley how did I miss that!
Bassement Jaxx - Red Alert (Steve Gurly Remix)
p.s. Oneman was just on Rinse kaning grime and 2-step.
Tori Amos style
which I havent really heard to be honest, I cant find the Arman Van HEldan remix for some reason its a classic pure speed grage classic.
Could have been certain it wasn't Wookie but Exemen Works in the brackets.
Sticky - Golly Gosh
Monsta Boy - I'm Sorry
Double 99 - RIP Groove
Probably my three other favourites (apart from a lot of the chart stuff which I adored when I was 8/9)
There's a Oneman live mix he did at Night Slugs kicking about on the internet - I was there, it was probably the best DJ set I have ever attended. Go download it ASAP, it's easy to find (on Bok Bok's Lower End Spasm blog I'm sure) - at 46.20 you can hear me screaming in the back. My favourite rewind of all time as well, it makes me grin every time I hear it.
I have vauge memories of him mixing Craig David into a little bit of luck and dropping the Neckle Camp Countdown Remix. Good times.
you can tell him a mile off with the soulful stabs and stupid bass sounds that go really low and have this rounded off quality to um.
thats a really cool track too man.
really really excellent song
there is a really soulful vibe to the vocals which is set against a mad driving and reletless bass sound.
so many classics.
And ALL rinsed in Oneman's Night Slugs set.
he must have been collecting this stuff and practising in his room ever since untill the last few years or so, then he just comes out with it all and blows everyone away. The guy is a true DJ, selecta legend.
DZ vs Bobby Caldwell into 2000F & J Kamata made me melt
2000F & J Kamata is some next level thing. It should have been fuckin massive! when it came out but everything is so fractured at the moment that it hardly made a dent. I mean you wont even find a MR Oizo Flat Beat in the charts now let alone a post dre post timberland vocoder pop hit like 2000F & J Kamata made.
(there was nothing being played in Newcastle).
Most of my favourites have been mentioned, but whatever people say about him now, I can still remember being blown away when I heard Mike Skinner's vocal line to Has It Come To This being played over Jammin's Distraction.
I have it on 12" somewhere I was thinkin of it the other day, Stanton Worriors made it I think and wacked it in a mix and released it on the down low.
(the first one). It wasn't on the down low ;)
like they released some of those booylegs as 12" singles for DJs to use. The Mr Red's and Busta Rhymes bootleg they made even got in the charts and onto an offical label if I remember right.
but Squarepusher's My Red Hot Cock is still awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8Y3piodWes
I pitch it down and play it with breakbeat and dubstep sometimes. It always confuses me mind there is two mixes on the 12" 'girl' and 'boy' I think it was, and I can never remember which I want to play and mixes out of, the labels dont give mych clue either.
I've not heard the other one.
...now I'm just disturbed.
Meant that I pretty much missed out on how good most of this stuff was first time round - except the first Streets album, which I rinsed - only to realise I'd made a mistake once I got the first Burial album. Blackdown tends to play loads of old Wookie and Zinc tunes on his Rinse show which really got me into some of the older stuff.
There's some excellent crossover stuff between modern 2-step, dubstep and funky being made at the moment - Brackles, Oneman and Geiom seem to be owning this stuff right now.
So yeah, to add my few to the list: Geiom - No More Tears, Greena - Actual Pain, Brackles - Get A Job.
But then you go to places like FWD or the massive FWD/Rinse raves and it's quite simply the most forward thinking dance scene in the world - nowhere else do we have this level of evolution, so quickly. It seems like the standard reasoning people give for the idea of the fast evolution of the 'nuum is dubplate culture, and it certainly seems to be a large part of it. Being able to produce and get new tunes out to a rave two days after finishing them (and passing them on to other DJs/producers in what is still quite a close-knit scene) drives people to act on newer ideas faster. It's a pretty exciting time with the diversity that's coming out of the dubstep/grime/garage/funky scene at the moment, and the crossover that's going on globally.
Speaking of raves, the next FWD vs. Rinse is at Matter on 31st July, anyone going? Gonna be a massive one...
pretty excited about it already. N-Type v Youngsta! Kode 9! Newham Generals! Zinc! Plastician! Loads of other great stuff! Should be really good
The last one at The End sold out of advance ones really quickly, and I had to queue for HOURS to get in. It was worth it though, which bodes well for this one.
Pretty annoying at the time, though like you day it was well worth it. I'm getting my tickets soon too, apparently it's selling out fast.
m:dubs bump n grind sunship mix...
while I was working at DiS?
I know Jimi's already picked up on these, but here are a few mixes that inhabit that Funky/modern 2-Step/Dubstep inter-zone we've posted at NPIP the last week or so:
Deep Teknologi ::: http://nopaininpop.com/2009/06/ochiba/
Joy Orbison ::: http://nopaininpop.com/2009/06/that-doldrum-joy-sound/ Sbtrkt ::: http://nopaininpop.com/2009/06/sweat/
Also the long-AWOL NPIP column returns tomorrow. Coincidentally it's all about 'bedroom 2-step'.
I look forwad to the return of the column as well.
I was locked in. Dusk & Blackdown were on not long after as well that was stupid, loads of funky and an exclusive set of new Zomby tracks, he even shouted me out and bigged me up on twitter. here it is: http://rinsefm.blogspot.com/2009/06/dusk-blackdown-25th-june.html
but I will sometimes post on dubstepforum that I'm locked and they sometimes read it there. I think MAH read my twitter the other night with her sonar show.
they sound like a laugh on sub fm, you can go on MSN for Rinse. Alot of the dubstep people say the tunes that are playing but I know alot of funky peeps dont.
