ambient d&b

kind of ambient drum & bass, without the drums ... and the bass dissolved from distinct riffs into a mire of sub-lo texture

like someone auditioning for a sound design job on Blade Runner 2049

and also not unlike Acardipane's most ambient-gabba moments e.g. "Jupiter Pulse"

ghosts of futures past

via Luke Davis, a gorgeous film of  kids electro-boogieing on the London Underground, as haunting for its ghostly glimpses of public transport and commuters in the Eighties as the angular grace of the dancing and the sleek futurism of the clothes

some more ghosts - and a track that is a 20th Century monument

maybe neurofunk wasn't a totally bad idea after all - that's pretty wicked, that

off of Jonny L's Sawtooth which is getting a reissue to celebrate its 20 Years Existence

plus a raft of remixes (all by dubstep-aligned types not drum & bass operators, significantly) of his big tune of '97 "Piper"

who knew there was a promo?

puro neuro

but he could also do pretty

and then within just a few years he'd jumped from neuro two-steppers to actual 2step garridge - and onto the TOTP sound-stage, in the company of Posh Spice

the foundation of his Hall of Fame status, though, is this early effort

the 99 relick

i guess that's why call it a Continuum, folks! (pt 2984)

proto grime

garage rap really - precursor to Pay As U Go

siiiick bass, Think-ing dark

 sick B-line

that track, I always connected with  Mask / Gang Related's "Ready Or Not" - both have that mental jagged bassline
"Ready Or Not" annoyingly isn't on YouTube in its original form, but only as this (pretty decent) remix
