Jackin' was the last exciting, fun uk house music scene, dont @ me
Has anyone been to the amapiano nights in London that are springing up? awoken in Peckham looks good. It's not hit the north yet, we're still listening to makina
I reckon I'm gonna try and go to awoken when I'm next down south, I reckon this over a proper system would be upper echelons business as they say
Yeh the percs are mostly focused on the top end - shakers and bongos, but the log drum (bass) is doing all the ribcage shaking in these tracks so you couldn't fill them up too much with weighty percs without losing thatWould like to hear how this stuff sounds on a big system though, the percs leave a bit too be desired for me. I like huge drums that shake the ribcage and fill up the room.

I know what you mean about long blends. I think they really really work with this music. I love that thing that a lot of the London DJs do where they'll tease snippets of a vocal tune for ages in a mix. Like playing the "come closer...come closer" section of that DJ jacko tune for a few minutes over another instrumental. Proper stuffBeen listening to this Vigro Deep set in Ldn from a couple months back. Feel like he coulda stretched out the blends a bit more, but I guess it's also a vibe that each track gets to shine by itself
I'm into the techier sounds and weird Can You Feel My Heart edit at 20mins, proper curveball. Loads of grit and darkness in there compared to the more pop leaning sets. Getting the vibe from the comments he's the people's champ weirdo-visionary in the scene
