Hot Traxxx / Sound Experiments: Bubbling
« on: April 25, 2010, 06:55:28 AM »
Since last year, I became interested in this genre called "Bubbling". It's said to come from Suriname, a Dutch speaking country in South America and became big in the Netherlands. Bubbling is still familiar in the Netherlands as it was during the 90s but not as popular as it once was. In Suriname, it is a mix of Dancehall Reggae breaks speeded up, but in the Netherlands, it adds more Techno beats as opposed to Reggae (similar to how Kuduro differs in Angola and Portugal). Here's an example:

Dj Moortje - The Score (Suriname/Netherlands)



Jax - Oldskool Bubbling (Suriname)



DJ Chuckie - Drop That Beat (Netherlands)



Dj Lroy - Blakka Djonko Megamix (Suriname/Netherlands)




and check out some of the dances.........:

For the Utube Wurld Tooor, we decided to add a new artists. As we found out that Bangs makes
Rehdogg look like 2Pac, Rehdogg will be removed and be replaced with Eli Porter .

Take a look from a 2003 freestyle battle on the 2:00 mark:

Hot Traxxx / House Cla**ics
« on: December 16, 2009, 07:45:40 AM »
I'm a House head as well as the next person on this site but I remember the good ol' days
of House/Garage back in the early 90s. Nothing but that Bumpy, Soulful, Sophisticated,
Funky, and Sexy sounds of that NYC/Chicago/London sound. I ain't feelin this
Electro-Trashy-Slutty image of Electro-House. Durban House is aiiight, though.



Noni D Pac With Terrance FM - I Wouldn't (1993)




Swing Kids- Good Feelin (Upstairs mix) (1991)




Hardrive (Masters At Work) - Deep Inside (Cla**ic House) (1993)




Kym Sims - A Little Bit More (Hurley's House Mix) (1992)

Hot Traxxx / Cameroonian Kwaito?
« on: October 28, 2009, 05:43:47 AM »
This was from a "World Musician" from Cameroonian born, French based musician named Dady
Mimbo. When I first heard this on the Putumayo's African Groove CD years ago, I though that
it was tight as a Afro-Electronic tune and it sounded like an early 90s Kwaito tune (despite
this tune comming from Cameroon):

Hot Traxxx / MY RANT ON: Dizzee Rascal
« on: August 18, 2009, 12:02:09 AM »
Hello people, I'm back for another summertime (for those in the Southern Hemisphere, wintertime) rant. Last year, my rant was on the Kwaito vs House scene but this time
my concern is about a former UK Garage MC, Dizzee Rascal.

Back in 2002, I was more of a international Hip-Hop head but when it came to England,
I wasn't too sure about Garage. I was really more into Slick Rick, Roots Manuva, 57th
Dynasty, and Black Twang, but I wasn't sure about Garage artists like So Solid, Pay As
U Go, and Ms. Dynamite. A year later, I became more interested in the genre when I
heard about a young MC named Dizzee Rascal being stabbed by an un-named So Solid
Crew memeber due to his beef with Asher D, who was also in that group. Just hearing
about Dizzee made me interested in the genre and even researching about the scene
(little do most people know that "Garage" music began in 1977 by DJ Larry Levan in
his New York nightclub called "The Paradise Garage").


After being hooked on the music through BBC 1Xtra (when it was a great station)
all I could think about was Garage music and I even wanted to do was produce Garage music. When Dizzee came out with his second CD, "Showtime", it was more Hip-Hop than
Garage but it was still good. Boy in the Corner, his first CD was far by the best
Garage album ever relased. Three years later, when most of the world anticipatedly
waited for Maths and English to come out, I, like everybody out expected Dizzee
to come back with fire. Instead, he returned with sugar. Maths and English turned
into pop and was more weaker than Showtime. I dont mind Lily Allen but that Wannabe
track did not seem right. The only Garage songs were Flex and Temptation (with the
Artic Monkeys)

I was just starting to think then, has Dizzee Dizz completely sold out? He no longer
does UK Garage raves anymore but I can understand why, he reached out to a larger audience, yuppies. Over the years, he had beef with 3 MCs but the beef with
Wiley, the leader of Roll Deep (Dizzee's first crew) and Dizzee's former mentor seemed
ridiculous, even though I understand Dizzee's perspective. I wish Dizzee could return back
to his Garage roots instead of hanging around with indie (yuppie) musicians).
I can understand that he may be selling out for the best but his music is becoming
more weak and saturated. Critics are even dismissing his latest stuff (trust me, if
you ever heard his new songs "Bonkers", "Dance wiv me", and "Holiday", you might
wonder "WTF happened to Dizzee"?) Has Garage gone that bad that Dizzee has to do
Pop music?


That was my $10 rant.

Producers - Discussion / Afro House
« on: July 26, 2009, 10:19:59 PM »
Like some of the people on these forums, I'm a House head too but I've seen a trend of
simularity between the UK and South Africa: the Afro-House music scene is big!

In South Africa, y'all have Durban House, which takes it's beats from Kwaito, European
Techno, and traditional African sounds, while in the UK, they have "Funky" House, in
which I see nothing funky about it. All you hear is just African percussions (which ain't
really a bad thing, I just think that they gave it the wrong name).

I like some Afro-House but the thing I hate about it is that people are now making it a big
deal than it already is. It's not like Frankie Knucles and Masters At Work haven't
experimented with African music with House. And another thing that I've realized is that
some of the people that were big in the UK Garage scene during the early 2000s like Donnaeo
and Marcus Nasty of the Nasty Crew are doing "Funky" (Afro) House.

Come to think of it, Brothers of Peace, DJ Sbu, Tzozo & Professor, The Hunger Boyz, and
the Trompies were Kwaito but had roots in House Music. Here's the simularities of Durban
and the UK Afro House scenes:

Humour / Jokes / Perez Hilton vs BEP (Boom Boom Pow remix)
« on: July 06, 2009, 05:01:36 AM »

NSG is crazy for this one, some of us know about the beef between BEP and
Perez Hilton and some of us saw Perez's perspective of the altercation he faced.

THIS IS THE REMIX

Enjoy!  ;D :D
