You should know the drill by now – some funk, some reggae, some beats, some breaks, some bleeps.
Get involved (below the fold obvs)
C’mon, admit it, DUR-DUR-WUBWUBWUBWUBWUB can get *seriously* trying after the the first few microseconds unless you’re full of more horse tranquillisers than Shergar on a comedown and ‘bootleg culture’ isn’t much better. Face it, the majority of songs which work well together, or can be ‘reinterpreted’ by banging a chunky beat and bassline underneath them is rapidly diminishing.
I like The Allergies, they seem to be one of the few using their brains whilst making music. It’s not just the same formulaic ‘take a popular song from the 60s/70s/80s and stick a wobble under it’ which seems to be all too prevalent in some scenes, but a proper cut and pasting of samples, scratches, nicely structured and usually they’re dancefloor catnip.
Did you miss me?
(in fact don’t answer that, you might hurt my feelings)
Apologies for the lack of a couple of weeks off – I was up in t’Midlands and we’ve only just got electricity up there, let alone the internet ..
Nevermind, I’m back in the land of civilisation now, so you lot get tunes.
