    Cafe oto vs pizza express jazz club

    nonsense, I know people who drive to 360 bpm traditional south-eastern anatolian zurna music. a very speedy tempo. Greens is just a northern softy.

    Artists open up John Peel's historic vinyl collection

    one thing i will say about Peel is there is no more figure subject to greater historical revisionism. People forget just how much shitty goa trance, hippie trails ethnodub, identikit indie etc etc he played. The truth that people don't mention is that Peel in some ways was the archetypical...

    Detroit - the myth

    there are some interesting contradictions there. marrying this very raunchy sex music with the distant throb of a cyborgs body devoid of all human sensations.

    Artists open up John Peel's historic vinyl collection

    Yes, hysterical prudes on twitter, as if those are just automated bots. Also people speak out about that hideous, disgustingly abusive custom when it happens of arranging marriages of older men to 8-10 year old girls. But when it can't be weaponised in the culture war by racists, those...

    Artists open up John Peel's historic vinyl collection

    groupies who are 16-17, perhaps depending on context. Groupies who are 12-14? less so contextual. But regardless, I don't think the framework of consent is a useful concept. Abuse isn't always non-consensual in the strictly legal sense. There's a tendancy here to confuse the law as it operates...

    Detroit - the myth

    of course, the definition of what constitutes funk by those proggy trancey lot is absolutely ghastly! It's like, wild cherry 3 note bassline overload. Someone like Surgeon, despite not citing that much classic funk as an influence is funky as fuck because he understands the rhythmic ritual...

    Detroit - the myth

    Pattycakes summer 25

    been waiting for someone to revive some of the more, ahem, connoisseur end of West London broken beat. I'd do it but I've been stereotyped as some kind of boorish, homophobic, gabba knucklehead, no idea why when the gabber/hardcore stuff I like is military intelligence, but hey ho.

    I LOVE MUSIC LOL

    I never liked his technique iyswim, even though I could appreciate it, intellectually. It gave me too much of a rock virtuoso vibe. Not that I'm against rock virtuosos from time to time. Chris Squire's monstrous avant-funk basslines in Yes. Larry Heard def sighted Yes as an influence!
