A quick introduction to BOUNCE music. It originated in Scotland and was originally called SCOUSE, which was short for “Scotish House”. It has recently gained a following in countries like Germany and Italy and is now reffered to as BOUNCE. Like much of the music I’m gonna feature on DKGL, Bounce really only works in a rave type setting. This genre’s defining feature is the “DONK”, which I am a fan of. You’ll know what it means when you hear it.
To be honest, I find most Bounce to be very formulaic and uninspired. Most of it is rip ups of popular dance tunes that are pumped out quickly to be dropped at raves for a few weeks and then forgotten. However, there IS good Bounce out there, and one of the things I’m gonna try to do on DKGL is filter through the crap and provide you with only the goodness. The cream of the crop (or the puss of the scab. mmm-mmm!).
Let’s start with the BASS SLAMMERS remix of EVERYBODY by RUDENKO. This came out in a massive remix pack that spanned many different genres of house. The Bass Slammers rmx is a really creative departure from the usual Bounce template, but they still maintain a big fat DONK. I love the tempo change in the middle.RUDENKO_-_Everybody_(Bass_Slammers_remix)_192
So what I’d love to know from you is if you agree that this is a GOOD example of Bounce music. Do you think Bounce is just all aweful or do you totally love your big Donks? Please hit the link below and answer the POLL to determine the fate of future Bounce on DKGL. OR feel free (as always) to leave a brutally honest comment…
