“14 tracks engaging the Hardcore Continuum”

The Hardcore Continuum is a movement borne out of the early 90's conflation of seemingly disparate underground cultures : Dancehall, Dub, Rave and Acid House. Steered by a burgeoning pirate radio scene and a plethora of anonymous record labels, this melting pot has exerted its influence on developments in new music until the present day, bringing to life Hardcore, Jungle, Drum & Bass, Garage, 2-Step, Grime and Dubstep. Kode 9 and Simon Reynolds have both written much about the Continuum (and you'd be well advised to seek out their texts if you have an interest), and given the announcement this week that Kode 9's record label Hyperdub has been Mercury Music prize shortlisted for the groundbreaking Burial album 'Untrue' we thought it time to pick a selection of more recent tracks emerging from, and influenced by the Continuum...

Take part! Leave a comment!

What do you think of this selection?
Any suggestions?
All comments are warmly welcomed.

“love it”

That Maxximus track is just too good...

On 23 Jul 13:54 Adam said:

“Brilliant!!!”

Well done guys! You came up with an awesome idea, listened to the feedback and acted on it - I'm now going t go back and buy ALL the collections so far recommended because at six quid it's worth it. Well done again!!!

On 23 Jul 14:17 Properdfom said:

“Special Blends”

Loving this site, a great idea, I will be going through all the selections one afternoon and building up a hefty bill i imagine! One thing, that Special Blends track is just 'Up All Night' by John B with a hip hop beat and the jungle filtered out!

On 23 Jul 14:32 David Allison said:

“Huge kudos to Boomkat”

A massive thank you for listening to the feedback and reducing the price. These great collections are now really reasonably priced. Such a brilliant idea. Thank you Boomkat. You continue to raise the bar on how to find new music.

“Awesome”

...Just... awesome. Boomkat, thank you.

On 23 Jul 17:31 Jack L said:

“Well done”

Good work on the price - thanks!

On 23 Jul 17:53 Cycles said:

“Sick sick siiiick”

Damn lads - awesome selection this week! I haven't heard Untitled / Special Blends track for years - still soundin fresh as ever (I remember the dnb version).

Great news on the lower price too!

“"Same As Above!"”

“japanese monkeys!”

this is great listening while watching wild animals throw poop around!

“Appleblim”

Been hearing a lot about this guy recently. i normally buy techno but this track is doing it for me. can anyone recommend anything similar?

On 24 Jul 09:50 Shlom said:

“Re : Appleblim”

Hey Andrew. you might want to check out Peverelist, Martyn and 2562/A Made Up Sound. The scape compilation 'Round Black Ghosts' is also a good starting point for that kind of sound, as is 'Dubstep Allstars 6' on Tempa.

On 24 Jul 11:09 Sam said:

“Great stuff - but 1 minor criticism!”

Love the concept, and now you've come up with a price that is impossible to ignore. Well done.

One minor gripe - could you not deliver all 14 tracks in 1 zipped file? That would make the whole experience flawless.

On 25 Jul 12:39 Elia Pace said:

“To Andrew re: Appleblim”

Check out www.residentadvisor.net for a brand new Appleblim podcast!

Nice one to Boomkat as well for negotiating the price down to something respectable!

“the price was the weakness but not anymore.”

top marks to Boomkat for listening to concerns about the pricing. No reason not to support 14 tracks now. excellent selection this week too.

On 29 Jul 14:59 Andrew Gong said:

“RE : Appleblim”

Cheers for the tip Shlom - that Martyn stuff is incredible, exactly what i was looking for.
Also, thanks for the link Elia, will go there now to listen. Can't wait for the next 14 tracks!
