    Law and Wheeler - Night Forms


    Good to see the 'jungle will never die' sound permeating mainstream dnb I mean Law's always been in it but people are putting more thought back into the beats, which is really what makes a good tune imo...

    I went to the rupture 12 th bday party in Corsica studios in Nov and had an amazing time- much more mature crowd then in Bristol....not full of kidz snorting coke and ket....:facepalm:
    Anyway still working my way through the dnb girls podcast and here are my two favourite podcasts atm, specially blown away by sistym from Perth ...sounds a bit liquids and mainstream at first....but after a few minutes it ....well I think it's sublime.:)
    Listen to DnB Girls Podcast #15 - SISTYM by DnB Girls #np on #SoundCloud


    Listen to DnB Girls Podcast #02 - Iris & Jams by DnB Girls #np on #SoundCloud

    Shock horror I really like a tune by Taxman - maybe unfairly ive had him down as jsut making pretty dumbstep jump up, and this is still pretty balls out but so many little ideas and things going on in this (listening on headphones)...and goes in different directions - little 94 omi trio-esque drum break section in the middle - mood change after mood change, but it all holds together...interesting record, deep and banging too - higher level production - played it about 5 times now just to take it all in


    (eta: the rest of the ep is more traditional taxman tbh)

    Makoto - Fancy Free
    Locksmith - Jah Seh
    Phase 2 - My Dearest Darling

    I put this on the "hardcore drum and bass" thread but it probably belongs here more. New Leicester label "Grade 10", putting out kind of retro mid 90s amen rollers... lot of nice warm synths, tearing beats. Also they do some more experimental ambient synth wash type stuff. There are some big choonz in their discoghraphy already. Thing they have a shop too, and a bit of a local scene, which is nice to see.

    I think it was easy to assume that jump up was shit for so long as all of the tunes just sounded like a best attempt at sounding like Twisted Individual circa 2004. The jump up scene finally got over that sound about 4 years ago. The different producers may have been honing a very specific sound but that's not to say there isn't any skill involved in making it sound like that. I find it so strange that there isn't a comparable scene anywhere insofar as it is massive in the UK but no one gives a fuck about it internationally!

    I've always rated skillful producers even if I didn't like the tunes, but I think you're right the excesses of jump up are probably behind us.

    I like where the scene is at on the whole... Still plenty of fodder and I'll never like the neuro thing, but I can happily sit through pretty much any set of new tunes on Kool these days... That wasn't the case a few years back.

    Tbf dnb has always been a UK thing, and apart from the odd exception I don't really rate most of the euro and us producers.... To me they're doing it wrong!

    Yep agree with you about the scene generally, maybe because of when I started going out raving (in the late 90s) and I was at the back end of the period when the UK hardcore scene could all be played in the same room - ie hh and jungle/dnb - I’m used to the idea of it all being one scene that is intertwined. I sort of still see garage, grime and dubstep and the various offshoots as the same thing too. It’s one of the things I loved about it as opposed to house and techno splintering off into loads of self-contained sub-genres.

    I disagree about seeing it as a uk scene only. Yes, the UK is definitely the home but I remember being really excited when Marky first came to the uk. Since then there have been loads of excellent producers and labels to come from elsewhere.

    Good point about Brazil which more than any other country gets it right I think... But the Belgian German polish russian axis is pretty disappointing so far, for my tastes. US getting better but still not quite there Ithink.
    There are exceptions to all of that though.

    Haven't heard any Southern European dnb though? Or French.

    Of all of the countries you mentioned, the Russians probably have more going on than the others. Apparently it’s massive out there and there’s loads of pop dnb in the charts. The bigger names like Enei and Eastcolors sound much the same as the others but it seemed that 10 years ago there was very much a “russian sound” that felt quite fresh:
