yay, bassline house at the top (almost, give it another week)of the UK pop charts

a piece by hattie collins in the guardian on the scene

here's a much earlier piece (“is 2004 really going to be the year of bassline house?”) from which it's easily gleanable that the genre honestly weren't up to much
when it started...


ardkore archivalism: Celler Dweller, an old skool rave blog with ace MP3s ranging from the obviously canonical to the ruddy recondite (2 Boasters, A Digestive & A Jammy Dodger's 'Large Southend Donut (1600cc Remix)'). Nicely illustrated too, plus the occasional trainspotter-pleasing factoid about where the samples come from and so forth.

(His blogpal Dilated Choonz seems to have fairly regular doses of cheesyrave amidst the Moodymann and Pavel Kostiuk mp3s)
