Haha, Jammer is going in on Skepta without saying it overtly on JJ's show.

EDIT: Or maybe not, but the way he was describing making pop hits then releasing a grime album for free certainly sounded like he was talking about Skepta.

So Donaeo has a new single out on Strictly Rhythm. Well old song, new single. I guess everything does go round in a circle. Current scene leader releasing a new record on formerly giant original scene leading record label, who's formerly ultra popular, scene leading sound was the original starting point for the UK garage scene that developed into some other scenes that has lead to the current scene?

It's good though! The original off his Party Hard album was one of the best tracks off that LP, and I can never say no to a Kenny Dope remix. Now if only they'd do the right thing and put it out on a 12". Hey gently caress it, stick all 7 cuts on the one plate I still wouldn't complain. Anything to get more UK house stuff out on wax.

Chill Out Zone's hardly a grime album but it's still got some enjoyable production on it. If Wiley produced the whole thing himself too I'm impressed.

Was just giving Untold's Gonna Work Out Fine EP another listen, what massive production. And a couple years later still seems exactly relevant to what's going on today. I saw him have this 'U-251' demo up on soundcloud for a minute but other than that nothing from the new year, I wonder what he's cooking up? Dreadnought seems like a really unfortunate turn to have taken

I was gonna say maybe he's just busy with the label, but looking at Hemlock's past release schedule it's not exactly crowded, with about a release per quarter. In that case I'd imagine he'll probably be focusing on the Dreadnought thing for a while, so that means you (and to be honest me) will probably be disappointed over the next wee bit.

Well the mystery is always better than the fact I guess.

Though a bit sad to see the return of 180 gram vinyl, still at least they aren't asking anymore for it so I can't really complain.

Oh and since this came out a week or two ago - just in case you forgot about it - the latest Seiji is out and rocking it hard, while Roska's Rinse mix CD is out so I actually get to see the final tracklist and it's looking real good. For some reason I thought it had Forward Motion on it, but sadly not. Ah well, nothing can be perfect.

Defo, title track is what makes it. I've always actually preferred the LuckyMe guys to Numbers actually now that I think of it.

And that Breton remix track just goes to show my theory is correct. 808s make everything better.

And let's not forget the newest Photek. I know a lot of people have been going on about the Pinch mix on this one. I still say all of Photek's recent work has been some of his best ever, right up there with his Solaris stuff (which up until recently I always thought was the pinnacle of what he'd done)

I like Jamie George a lot actually, he's not the best vocalist but he's got a good symbiosis with Roska, and since the latter's tunes are rarely all that exciting sans vocals, he's doing good work IMO.

I don't mind him generally, just sometimes that kinda accent he's got when he's doing his thing can be a bit much. Like I said it's a bit like Kate Nash or something. Like, "I'm a lahndoner don't cha know!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5tqzm-o76Q "What a whan-dah-full day". Not that I can comment complain about anyones accent mind.

Yeah he changed to Joy O about a year ago I think? He had his Hotflush stuff and his first Doldrums single as Orbison but then he dropped the rbison.

As for Pearson Sound, the moniker's been in concurrent use with the Ramadanman name for awhile, I think David Kennedy just decided to release more stuff with the PS alias recently (I think everything he puts out for Hessle Audio uses the PS name). The Ramadanman remix single for Night Slugs wasn't released that long ago. He's also making house-y stuff under the Maurice Donovan alias (a "lost Detroit prodigy" or somesuch) but his production style's hard to miss. I would say the aliases correspond to different kinds of music but to be honest I can hardly tell the difference between Pearson Sound and Ramadanman.

Yeah like thepopstalinist said, Ramadanman has been using the Pearson Sound alias almost exclusively for a while now. I actually think I read somewhere he wants to use the PS name full time, but he's having problems since the Ramadanman name is already so popular. I think he wanted his Fabric mix to be purely a Pearson Sound title.

I don't think he's too happy anymore with the name. To be fair it is a bit gash, and I think he was still pretty young when he came up with it and a bit embarassed by it. Like being in a band in your youth and coming up with a terrible name that sounds cool when you're 15, but when your 25, all you want is to not make it sound like you're a bunch of 15 year olds.

A lot of producers do stuff like that tbf, just check out the differences in sound between Sasu Ripatti's various aliases: there's a clear logic behind them, Ramadanman could do something like that.

Oh totally. It's always fun when, unexpectantly, you find out some artist you really like is just an alias of someone else. Sometimes it's done for stylistic reasons, sometimes just not to overburden the market with a glut of material. I really wish Kromestar had done that. I sadly lost interest in him when, at one time a few years ago, he seemed to have just tons of new releases each week, on labels like Southside and Fantastic etc. Just way too much, like a massive sugar overdose, you just got full and had to push stuff away after a while which is a shame as I bet a lot of it was good. Should've split stuff up and used his Iron Soul alias some more, maybe a couple of others. Mind you I say that, he still had a bunch of stuff out as Iron Soul/Droid as well.

Oh and I found the Ramadanman/Pearson Sound interview I was talking about. It was a interview in Fact mag.

Ramadanman/Pearson Sound posted:

ďWell the change to PearsonÖ itís not like with Redlight, when he went from Clipz to Redlight, and totally changed his sound [from drumíníbass], Iím not doing that. My process is more gradual, thatís why the CD has two names, thatís why bookings right now are as both names, but eventually theyíll be just Pearson. Plus I havenít done that many tunes as Pearson still, so I want to get more out thereÖ I figure thatís the best way to do it.Ē


So sounds like it'll end up just being Pearson Sound on the label in the near future.

Liking this Disclosure EP a lot. The A is a light joint that drops a sweet bassline and turns into some wicked purpley synths with a stuttering vocal sample, while the AA is like a really good James Blake track (remember when he made those?).

Actually we were just talking about this a page or two ago. I quite liked the A side, but I thought the B-side was just a bit of a James Blake knock-off. Though I was also casting doubts on the use of 7 inches, and if it's just a way to appeal to the record buying indie crowd or get some big label attention. Should've been stuck on a 12" or a 10 for ultra cool bonus points.

I'm not sure what their financial situation is but usually 7 inches are way cheaper to produce. I seriously doubt they are doing it just to appeal to some "indie" crowd.

Oh sure they're cheaper to produce. Though actually nowhere near as cheap as they used to be, even just a few years ago. I think they've actually gone up a lot more compared to how much pressing on 12 has gone up. drat peak oil and war in the middle east! And here I used to think when vinyl got more popular and more people were pressing stuff up, it'd get cheaper!

But here's the thing, technically that type of music belongs in the modern dance genre, call it UK Bass or whatever have, and it's the 12 inches that rules in the scene and is what the DJs want. I rarely see a 7 inch pressed much at all, obviously I mean, barring the usual suspects like the indie/punk/guitar etc circles, and the soul and funk crowd(god bless the Italians and their love of Brazilian funk on 7s). So relatively unknown artist doing stuff in the style of famous artist who's managed to find a lot of appeal in the non-dance segment of music lovers, releases 7 inches on primarily indie labels. To me you go, okay, is this really aimed at the scene, and is it really an attempt to contribute positively to the health and well being of it? Or is it just an attempt of someone to climb up the back and get at something else?

Again I am very cynical and grouchy in general. I'm like one of those two old puppets in The Muppet Show.
