I think this sound is getting better and better....still a lot of sub-par tunes get made, but thats probably true in every scene. Because it often relies on very simple elements it can get in to some silly/stoopid/cheese territory - but when its right, its great. As well as lots of upfront tunes I am starting to find a few deeper ones too. Most of its pretty upfront though. I've been hunting for good tunes and am starting to build up a nice little selection - hungry for more though. Theres a bunch of different styles that kind of go together, and can get played together. Grime can fit in here too i guess. My understanding of the different terms are Bass tends to have 4x4 kicks, possibly a bit of garage shuffle, but definitely all about the bass taking the lead, often with no other elements than drum and bass. In fact I get a lot of DnB vibes from theses tunes. At worst can get a bit bro-step noisy at times. Usually more restrained than that though. Bass house is more about a house feel but with a lot of sub bass elements that regular house doesnt. 4x4 Garage is just that, garage, with a more stomping feel Funky is hard to describe but i guess its a lot like garage in terms of the shuffle, but not limited by the formula - explores taht shuffle in differnet funky directions! Hard to describe these things really. Then theres loads of stuff that doesn't fit neatly into any of that... Anyhow, TUNES! I've found that lots arent up on the internet, save for record shops. This is one of my favourites at the moment, on a slightly less obvious tip. Tentronic & Negativ - Shatter And this is really clever I think JG - Cave Explorer bit of shit audio version on soundcloud - release is fatter - i think to stop people downloading it cheekily!
