    New Dancehall

    Not sure if people saw, but EleganceGad was shot and killed last week. In addition to the human tragedy, a real loss in terms of someone pushing the autotune weirdness more than most. Been listening to this track that dropped a week or two ago a lot the last couple days. His management team...

    Depends how you define "past few weeks" - could point to other recent good tunes - but I liked Intence and Iwaata on New Moves Riddim.

    Why Conspiracy Theories?

    Did they download a deconstructed club EP from bandcamp for the BGM?

    Bong Bing got pretty big on TikTok and Cristale was out in Jamaica a few weeks ago, so I think we'll see more tracks in that vein soon.

    New Dancehall

    I don't dislike it in the way other people seem to, and yeah I do get the distinctive thing you mention (there is something kind of amusing about it, and not necessarily in a negative way - Skillibeng shared a video on Insta where someone had superimposed the wap bit onto COD or some other...

    Whatever the situation is, the past couple weeks have been stronger. Few recent tunes (don't think these have been posted): Couple older bits I didn't get round to sharing at the time: This last one tapping into that "gaseous" vibe Benny mentioned way back in the thread.

    That tune is obviously getting a bit of backlash - and yeah fair enough, it's a good example of Skilli's laziness we've talked about before - but I take Dancehall Mag's stance on it with a slight pinch of salt tbh. There are still a bunch of people defending it in the comments, and generally...

    have you had the corona yet?

    Not yet, although the number of infections are so low in Tokyo compared to other places and I only know a few people who have had it. Think Japan's luck might be about to run out though with omicron.

    Afrohouse

    Thanks both of you, will give all of this a listen.

    Afrohouse

    Admittedly I've been paying a lot more attention to dancehall so may have missed loads, but did the London take on amapiano/afrohouse dry up a bit at least in terms of tracks/releases? Was thinking about standout tracks this year and I could think of some belonging to that sound from early 2021...

    New Dancehall

    Can't really comment on Alkaline from a historical perspective given basically all my serious dancehall listening has come in the last 12 months and has mostly been focused on tracks released in that time, but the stuff from this year hasn't really clicked for me (thinking mostly of the album...

    Universally agreed terrible film(s)

    The live-action Ghost in the Shell is surely down there. Even setting aside the casting of Scarlett Johansson, it's just such a terrible film by any standard - or at least it was for the 30 minutes I saw before I had to turn it off.
