    Disclosure checks are a fucking rip-off

    I guess this is basically a selfish rant that poss doesn't even belong in Politics. But seriously, there does seem to be something wrong about citizens being repeatedly charged to prove that they're not criminals. It's something I find hard to formulate into a coherent statement as to what the...

    Is anyone else experiencing this? - Sometimes I'll see on a forum page that there has been a new post in a thread, but when I click on the thread it's not there.

    Tentative Mixing This is the 2nd attempt I've made at putting together a mix for other peoples' listening, and the 1st attempt where I've decided to share the end result. I'm not under any illusions as to this being some kind of masterpiece: it's on software, there are...

    African house

    (Zhao this thread is surely your time to shine :D ). House music in Africa is something that is being talked about a reasonable ammount at the music, but is something I know next to nothing about. My current knowledge literally ammounts to Township Funk and a couple of DJ Cleo bits. Could...

    Rolling Radio Show Thread

    I felt I should contribute something positive and productive again after all my dubious moaning and rambling in the Thought forum. Been thinking about doing a thread like this for a while, then Dan said something alon the same lines a couple of days ago which spurred me into action: Rules are...

    Best grime producers

    Inspired by padraig's junglist auteurs poll/thread, by listening to things like the 69 Allstars mix and TD's mix for Fact a lot at the moment, and by being bored and wanting to contribute something positive and enjoyable after the education/Woodcunt thread. :D Also-rans: Bossman, Young Dot...

    Is Political Communication Possible?

    I.e. - can people who occupy significantly different points on the political spectrum engage in rational debate, of a sort which might end in them increasing each others' understanding? These days I often find myself doubting that they can.

    Personal favourites, in roughly descending order: HMGovt nomos Mr Tea empty mirror Idle Rich's one disturbs me a good deal, as for the first few days it was up I didn't realise the woman had a mask on. :eek:

    Genre Overload

    Contrary to what you might expect, this isn't one of those 'why are there so many silly names about these days, it confuses everything, why can't we just call it music, maaan?' type of rants. The names are mostly fine I reckon, it's the objective existence of such a plethora of actual musical...

    Beat-mixing tunes at different tempos

    What is the key to this? Is it to do with finding tracks where the bpms are multiples/divisions of each other? (Obv not talking about things which + or - 5 from each other or whatever, talking about how to do fairly major shifts).

    The Acid House
