    Default F*****d up drum'n'bass

    A genre I was a bit intrigued by when it appeared 10-15 years ago or whenever it was. Listened a bit to some stuff online and review CDs I was sent for a 'zine but never got around to really exploring it. This is something that is like a noiser and more avantgarde d'n'b I guess. Now I can only think of Venetian Snares - but there were others in a similar vein I liked. Anyone have more recommendations?

    Examples:



    "Only one thought left, that makes me come alive,
    and that is you and me side by side, on the licorice ride"

    Not sure if it's fudged up enough for you but I used to really like Plug:



    "..hole...road...middle thereof"

    Aphex Twin - Come to Daddy

    http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=5Az_7...%3D5Az_7U0-cK0

    Quite a terrifying video, not suitable for small children IMHO.

    Good call Mr B... The first two Plug 12"s are great, proper looney tunes...
    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

    For starters, Four Hero 'Paralell Universe' is pretty crazy, much more of a soul vibe though compared to Mr Vberts stuff.
    Tony Thorpe and his Endemic Void project made some seriously strange trippy and melancholic stuff, although Venetian Snares is more 'Breakcore' in that he uses a tracker programme for the assembly of his beats rather than the old school method of large/multiple hardware samplers tied to a sequencer. However it's all about the person rather than the equipment!
    The early Omni Trio stuff on Moving Shadow is pretty mad as well, more of a 'rave' vibe
    Of the new bunch, check Rockwell whose music is strange, dark and distinctly old school in feel.
    I know there's a load more, need to check my vinyl.......

    Yeah, I got all the fun twice as I was in London when a lot of the Omni Trio etc stuff first came out, then I moved to Japan and 6 months later it all hit these shores.

    Heh, two bites of the cherry eh?
    I'm going to do some charts in the review forum about various strands of UK club culture over the years and the records therein. Including Drum And Bass, not sure which sub section to go for, Intelligent, Rollers, Ragga/Jungle, Dark etc etc.
    I think I'll be doing an Italian Piano House top ten first though. The kind of records that the likes of Farley and Weatherall used to play at clubs like Phuture, Spectrum, Shoom and loads of other Boys Own affiliated
    clubs like Yellow Book in covent garden. And not forgetting the major Northern clubs like Hacienda.
    Now I just need to get my arse in gear and get it done!

    Wonder if enough folk would be up for a D'n'B swap? The House one seemed to go down well ...
    Paging Viva Chiba ...

    Unfortunately I don't have any of that stuff on vinyl any more.

    Well, I have some of the wax at least - I've retained about a crate and a half of oldskool / d & b 12".

    Sadly don't seem to come across it here as much as in my former Sarf Laandun hunting grounds though.

    I'd be up for that. Finally make some use of the pile of the dnb 12"s that sit on the bottom shelf
    Edit: sadly no smooth mixing available...

    Panacea made some good messed up drum and bass, there were a few things on the position chrome label like that.
    This is a good comp for a starter point : http://www.discogs.com/Various-Avant.../release/73174

    Mix of styles here:

    Arcon 2 - 'The Beckoning'

    Wisp - 'Sceadugenga'

    Current Value - 'Dark Rain'

    Wagon Christ - 'King's Lyn'

    Soundmurderer & SK1 - 'Dangerous' sounds like a period piece, then around 2.20 it goes bonkers.

    Amon Tobin - 'Chomp Samba'

    Black Sun Empire - 'Arrakis'

    Qemists - 'Your Revolution' Reso remix

    Gangpol & Mit - '1000 People Band Part 1' least D&B track here but you'll hear why it's included.

    An airy one to finish with - Rawtekk - 'Snowflakes'

    There are many interesting things here, thanks.

    In particular Plug and that Ruby My Dear, along wuth Aphex Twin and Squarepusher that also briefly passed through my consciousness back in my 20s.

    Maybe what I'm after is more what appears to be called breakcore than d'n'b? I don't know...

    I just remembered one of the CDs (I may still have somewhere in the basement or something) that really blew my mind when I listened to it. The first two tracks on the record are great, with so extensive sampling from X-Ray Spex and Motley Crue respectively - they're in part almost like remixes:

    "Only one thought left, that makes me come alive,
    and that is you and me side by side, on the licorice ride"

    Breakcore, couple of good things to check

    Doormouse and anything on the US addict or distort labels, also check the I Heart series (kraftwerk, polka, rap)
    Kid606 (earlier stuff) and stuff on the tigerbeat6 label

    Whoa, sarf London massif in de area! ha ha. Where are you now then?

    Cool, I'd be up for that, got loads of UK underground dance/electronic stuff. 2 Step Garage, House, D+B.
    Plus shedloads of Detroit and US Techno/House/Electronica. German/Euro/UK Ambient etc etc...

    Exactly! The same here.
    I don't think there are many people who are/were really into Jungle/D&B that like breakcore, but I might be wrong.

    For the Omni Trio fans



    To dispel any doubt that we seem to have gone full circle.

    Donny, Current Value and Counterstrike, used to love them.









    My favourite:


    Anything on killing sheep records is worth checking.

    Always dug this sort of thing perhaps more at the jazzier (sometimes) 'Squarepusher' end of things but you cant help but admire the sheer work that goes into something like the sort of thing 'Venetian Snares' produces.
