    The tyranny of 130

    you might expect this kind of reticence to get out there and meet people in person would have something to do with maintaining a discrete online persona, but with jack i don't think there's any of that going on - corpsey is jack, jack is corpsey

    The tyranny of 130

    rather than a strict internet vs IRL separation was your real policy to only meet people from the dubstepforum?

    i had no idea it was such a badge of honour to have met corpsey IRL how wonderful!

    this isn't about that, this is purely about luka being able to let his hair down in a comfortable environment. im trying to help.

    The tyranny of 130

    of course there are exceptions. places that have the designated corner for the oldies. in germany the average age in the average club is a lot higher. luke could walk in almost anywhere and not stand out. wouldn't have to stick to the corner either

    The tyranny of 130

    two tangents - the balearic thing came around again, harvey is bigger than he's ever been, headlining festivals.. and the slightly more niche chuggy thing people like lena willikens do has also been influential. we're not talking headlining giant techno events, but she probably plays 100+ shows...

    The tyranny of 130

    i would actually - 110-145 with 4 to the floor as the anchor would be hard to argue with but stylistically can be vary wildly varied within that. the actual role of the 4x4 kick is playing is similarly varied within that too. there are more people in techno playing broken stuff, and stronger...

    The tyranny of 130

    I'm still not clear as to what the argument is. If it's just the truism that boring techno is boring, then I agree. There's loads of very conservative big room techno out there, with all the established tropes that we know work in these big spaces. It's a gateway thing for lots of people. Could...

    The tyranny of 130

    so it's not a tempo you object to really, and it's not a genre either - it's a particularly linear subset of one, that even then might only exist as a unified thing in your imagination. you're comparing a lovely experience you had at a party that sounds explicitly tailored towards your taste to...

    Thrive in '95 - Jungle's zenith

    i think there's something exciting about the extremity of the swings from joyful to joyless. the speed at which that change occurs. energising! the shift from one to another, that movement in a particular direction, must have felt incredible. legacy betrayal sounds quite exciting too, great...

    DJing is a right wing abomination

    hiya :) re: the differing 'subtypes' of DJ identified in the first couple of pages - 'give them what they want' vs 'give them what they need' i think sometimes those two positions can be brought a bit closer to each other. it's great when people are open to the unfamiliar as part of a communal...

    The Paradox of Musical Description

    sound is absolutely physical and textural though, and that's not just confined to sub-bass. that doesn't tell you anything about whether or not its any good, and i dont know whether it could form the basis of any criticism but the physicality of a sound can certainly be used as a descriptor. i...

    The Tabloids

    the mail/sun are pure propaganda/incitement, how useful is it to compare their readership with that of the bbc? it's not 'news' in the same way so they don't influence in the same way, so im not sure a comparison of the numbers can do this conversation justice

    Listening Clubs Tantalize Audiophiles in London

    pop music needs to sound good everywhere because it's listened to everywhere. it needs to sound good on laptop speakers but also car radios, club systems, hifi, earbuds etc
