Today's current dance music

It's pretty fucking dreadful isn't it? Every tune in the same genre has the same drum kit, synths and builds.

Re: Dissertation on clubbing ... looking for participants in interviews/questionnaires!

Hi Natasha, I'm 35 give or take a year, I can never remember. I got a couple ideas on a couple of these things, it's something that's always interested me as well.

Re: Dissertation on clubbing ... looking for participants in interviews/questionnaires!

As ever with ethnographic research, results and conclusions depend upon who you speak to.

Surfacing for a shameless plug

For anybody interested in the pre-house roots of dance music and the pirate radio stations in London that played the music of that era, I contributed to an exhibition opening at the ICA on Tuesday.

Re: Today's current dance music

Hi there, Ref. this: I'm not exactly 'current' anymore but listening to R1's coverage from Ibiza a few weeks ago seemed to be a shitstorm of this EDM stuff - and I agree, it's ghastly.

Re: Today's current dance music

I think there's some amazing music out there, yes it's influenced by the past but that's cool with me especially as a lot of it sounds very early 90's, check out Gilles Peterson on Saturday...

Re: suppose I may as well edit the subject line

Ukd revival. Isn't there a sort of longing for.. well.. one's youth here? Of it being '96 again.

Nothing to do with dance music, but thought i'd post up some photographs ;-)

Re: The rather scant (I expect) Best Of 2009 thread

I personally think 2009 has been a belter for dance music. Drum and Bass has been doing big things for me again, it's really ravey, but pushing sounds and ideas that haven't been explored before -...

Re: The Noughties

It's too hard to think about 10 years of music. For myself, Dubstep was the best thing to happen to music this decade.

Electro Funk

Electro-Funk is undoubtedly the most misunderstood of all UK Dance genres, yet probably the most vital with regards to its overall influence.

A disturbance in the force

end of digest [whozat? -ed]: Well there you have it - if the dance music was occasional, then the fact the historical corium has disintegrated to: Should have no major impact.

It was indeed another compelling music documentary from BBC4, the subject of which was always going to be of interest here.

Re: The end of UK-Dance

ave atque vale UK-D I came across UK-D back when it was a digest-only email list in 1995.

Re: Dissertation...

Hi! No I'm not implying that. I'm looking into what house means now and whether it still holds the political/​racial/​sexual connotations from its past.

Crossing over, gradually

I am sure I won't be the first to have noticed this tune: www.boomkat.com

Re: Massive track for 2011!! Club Banger

Papa has provided you with a micro analysis of specific elements of the track, and I think that Papa's neo-semiotic approach to the task in hand has its merits.


Right, I'm marking coursework today... so why not bring some of this joy to the good people of UK-Dance?

Re: New Renaissance Compilation - Sidetracked

Punk rock. Dance music. Simon Cowell. All the same and can be summed as "anyone can do it". So perhaps a return to elitism and musical genius is called for. Lord Borthbury

Re: Mystery of Love

I much prefer it to "Love Can't Turn Around" as I find the Pandy vocals just too cheesy, a bit too Hi-NRG.

Most lately (last night, infact) it was Kasabian live at The Garage, Highbury N1


hmmm. ok then, I've got a few minutes. It hits different people differently but this is how it was for me.

Brighton People... (and anyone nearby!)

Re: Dissertation on clubbing ... looking for participants in interviews/questionnaires!
