    the 2000s: worst era in recorded music?

    there's certainly that (being on the floor off your head having adventures, leading to lasting good feelings about a particular era of music) there's also this thing which I think is true which is that you get "full up". like there's no room for more new stuff. the last few years i have...

    the 2000s: worst era in recorded music?

    well I'm not talking about things with assigned seats and toasts etc - but e.g. having people in your living room, eating food, that you might have cooked, but equally might have ordered in. In that context, a little bit of Herbert 'Around the House' or a Kompakt komp is very close to old man...

    the 2000s: worst era in recorded music?

    did anyone mention 'microhouse' aka 'mnml' yet? all that music out of Germany, Kompakt, Michael Mayer, et al. Now that is some 'moderately diverting at the time', utterly forgotten / forgettable echt-2000s shit if ever there was...

    The Screamed Name Tunes

    yes exactly and the scream itself could be an English voice but the rest is clearly American (and the internet tells me is from Boyz in the Hood)

    The Screamed Name Tunes

    Suburban Base put out an insane number of remixes of "Johnny" - well, not insane, but it seemed like a startling gesture at the time to put out simultaneously four or however many it was remixes by big-name producers. i remember the promo slabs coming through the post.

    The Screamed Name Tunes

    Scottie is by far the best I think - the use of the different bits of dialogue is amazing and how they're placed amid the breaks - the alternation in tones from whimpering defeat to defiant determination it's genuinely dramatic

    The Screamed Name Tunes

    For some reason I've long labored under the misapprehension that the "Ricky!!!" comes from Eastenders

    The Screamed Name Tunes

    Were there any other screamed name tunes? And which came first? Always assumed it was "Scottie" but I'm not actually sure.

    the 2000s: worst era in recorded music?

    so that implies that you think the 2010s are significantly better? (I'd probably agree but I'm not completely sure why - seems to be less pastiche - the vintage-y / faded / Hipstamatic-filter thing replaced by ultrabrite superflat hyperdigital)

    Pirate Radio Archives (Non Grimetapes)

    well it was nationwide in its popularity i think - as you can see with the Northern uptake of speed garage, the 'organ house' (that name always tickles me) and then Niche / Bassline 4/4 garridge is very good music for dancing to, just the right tempo + right amount of ruffness added to make...
