wheel and come again

Very interesting long essay by Laurent Fintoni on the Rewind Continuum - reggae>>>jungle>>>UKgarage>>>2step>>>grime>>>dubstep>>>> - the Jamaica-nisation of British underground dance culture   - titled "Wheel It Up: History of the Rewind"

lots of great little info nuggets like the origins of  much-sampled things like "Lick wood means rewind, a gunshot means forward, you request it so we rewind"
