Dom at Musings of A Socialist Japanologist with a really interesting post on the sound that's usurped (yet also evolved out of) bassline in the North -- and which he characterises as the nuum (South Yorks/West Midlands division) ruffing up electrohouse as the nuum (London division) did with funky house

more detailed response to it over at Blissblog 

(seems like Bassline-fiend Continuum did start a Dissensus thread on it a while back, but the response was disinterest / derision from the assembled Dissenserati)

(what is the etymology of this term Electroline then?)

love the MC element, reminding me of those bassline-meets-grime (with a Northern accent ) tracks by people like Bonez

("hands in the air if you think you're hardcore")

and also the MC-ing (live on the set and also as featured artist on some of the tracks) in this bumpin mix by Marcus Nasty

some ace tunes dug up by Dom/MoaSJ including this one

and this delish bootleg refix of Chaka's Ain't Nobody

here's a couple of others I really like

in a funny way reminds me just a bit of moombhaton, in the sense of fresh/buzzy yet also a reconfiguration of known elements where it's hard to spot the newness. and also with the slip down in tempo c.f. the precursor sound, bassline.

and finally SWAG - a hilarious Jackin' House and Bass blog that Martin Blackdown spotted, which at first I thought had to be a spoof of some kind...

what's with all the references to ket and cat?  do people really wear little spoons around their necks? if so, puts a different angle on bumpin beats

SWAG AS FUCK takes me back to my youth this un getting ketty ont dancefloor cos the girls love bass lol ;) x


here at swag HQ we are all still onit from weekend. been having a reyt time like, one of us mates went under and lost his clothes, cat, geebs and his spoon! hes proper gutterd... you can even see his cat dick on pic...hate it when that happens but its orite we used our new special program to hide his identificaton.

We bet you cant wait to wrap your noses round these unreleased beautys, solid gold and look how shiney they are (wont be shiney when they are brimming with my boom cat :P) we have been busy makin these spoons over the past 2 weeks sorry if we havent been around much bt spoons come first as u all know, whats the point in going out if u dont have a spoon on?



What a sick tshirt - 3 of our favourite things here at
SWAG blog! For those who do not know what DC10 is, its the home of jackin electro house in Ibiza. Its got red walls and fit lasses walk around in bikinis giving out free cat all night long while you dance the night away to mucky wobblers and deep bouncey chicago electro house beats. Its just round the corner from Cafe Del Mar (Where that song was made from kevin & perry) and the world famous OK Kareoke Bar. Personally i've never been to ibiza but me and the boyos plan to smash openings this year, tom's gonna put half oz of cat up his arse before we get ont plane so we can join the mile high cat club hehe naughty :P

I cant wait for all the ket, sex and kareoke, this lass has got it nailed on with this tshirt, if your wearing something with DC10 on it then you are the definition of
