“14 tracks in Hypercolour: a synthfunk sampler”

Wonky's uglier, ruder cousin, the new wave of hyper-coloured synthfunk is fast becoming the definitive sound of 2009. Situating itself somewhere between Grime, classic Dre productions and arcade machine / 8-bit eruptions, the 'Purple Wow' styles of Joker, aided and abetted by the likes of Gemmy, Guido and Jakes has spearheaded a new movement in bass music that references West Coast G-Funk classics like Dre's "Deep Cover" or Above the Law's "Livin' Like Hustlers" while utilising a distinctly Uk/Urban palette. There's considerable crossover with Dubstep too, but this is a scene dominated by a multicoloured vibrancy far removed from monochrome wobble and halfstep templates played in dark rooms, instead injecting a sense of urgency, sleazy excitement and danger back into the dance.

You're making this up. 14 tracks does not a genre make.

“the illness”

excellent sh*t, love that ravey lazer sound, especially the Eskmo which is prime!

On 14 May 02:56 Daniel Miller said:

“Well, you do already have two tracks up...”

...but Rustie's Zig Zag would've been a nice addition what with its Bambaataa breakdown and all.
Props for adding Eskmo though; definitely one of our (the US, that is) better producers in this field.
