Fidget, or Crack House as it is more colorfully referred to, is the latest mutant sound in urban London dance music. An off-shoot of Bassline, Fidget is some what of a hybrid between British 2-Step, B-More Club and electro house, with just a dash of drum & bass. Rude bwoy chatter, air-raid sirens, twitchy synths, 303 acid, UK garage vocals, various bleeps and bloops, break beats and grimey low end fuse together to form this infectiously propulsive sound. Pioneered by Switch, it is currently being championed by the formidable DJ Zinc. This of course is not all that surprising as his Bingo Beats imprint has been pushing these disparate genres in one way or another for almost a decade.
Grab this mix Zinc put together and enjoy the new sound of Urban London in the comfort of your own headphones. DOWNLOAD
Here I basically just write about whatever I'm into at the moment. Mostly it's music, but also some books and a good political rant every now and then, circumstances warranting. I'll post links to audio I think is worth downloading, but basically, it's just self-indulgence in the typical fashion of web 2.0 user generated content. This is blogging after all, a bare minimum amount of narcissism is implied, is it not?
If you've taken the time to read all of this you may as well check out some of my posts. And if you've gotten something from this blog or you think my writing sucks, I'm full of shit, etc.- why not reply or contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org? I would sincerely love to hear from you, whoever you are...
