THROWBACK THURSDAYS: CAROLINE AT HER SWEETEST

Any Bostonites in the build? This one is for you!

NEIL DIAMOND – SWEET CAROLINE

It’s one of histories greatest sing-a-long songs. Originally released in 1969, it was 44 years later, in 2013, that this single peaked in popularity. Because of its reputation as a crowd pleaser, Boston’s Fenway Park began playing the song, during Red Sox…



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: FROM SCRATCHENSTEIN TO THE LIGHTER

Tonight, we go allll the way back to 1995. JUNGLISTS, fasten your seatbelts.

DJ SS

He began, in the 80’s, as a turntablist, and member of Leicester based HIP-HOP act, THE FORMATION FIVE. As the UK RAP scene gave…



DKGL YEAR 4 – THE JUMPOFF!!!

I’m sure you’ve noticed that things have changed around here. DKGL has an exciting new, responsive layout to kick off Year 4. It’s sleek, sophisticated, and maybe even a little more grown up. Don’t go thinking I’ve gone all mature on you. This blog is still gonna be tonnes of fun.



HEADUCATION: THE GROUP THAT PUT RAVE MUSIC WAY IN OUR BRAINS

What would BREAKS sound like today, if SL2 had never been formed? For that matter, would DRUM N BASS or HARDCORE have happened at all??? If you’ve ever enjoyed any of these genres, you owe a “thank you” to SLIPMATT & LIME.

HEADUCATION: SOMEBODY TO LOVE THROUGH MULTIPLE GENERATIONS

You could argue, speculatively, that if not JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, it would have been THE GRATEFUL DEAD, or JANIS JOPLIN, that ended up being acquainted most strongly with the Hippy culture explosion of 1967, but due to perfect timing and commercially friendly POWER POP appeal, it was a song, titled SOMEBODY TO…



DR. Z-VAGO’S BAT DEVICE

You can learn a lot about an artist by exploring the things that influenced them early on. We are all shaped heavily by the sounds and images of our adolescence. They remain at the core of our being, and we can never really escape them. The following is from that era of my own life.

HOW EDM AFFECTED THE DISPOSABLILITY OF TOP 40 MUSIC

Rewind to the 60’s, a time when the Beatles and the Beach Boy’s innocent anthems flooded the airways. A time when bands were still iconic based on the music they released, and fans lived or died by…



HEADUCATION: WHY PUNKS DON’T KNOW ABOUT ROACH MOTEL

In the early 80’s, Florida was a very uninteresting place. From sheer boredom, teenagers lashed out violently, which eventually led to a vibrant PUNK ROCK scene, with its own unique style and sound. But before anyone else was doing it, there was ROACH MOTEL.

ROACH MOTEL



HEADUCATION: GRANDDADDY JUNGLE

You’ll hear a lot about GOLDIE, ANDY C, and GROOVERIDER being the pioneers of DRUM N BASS. It’s less seldom that people delve further back into JUNGLE’s roots, and credit REBEL MC as the genre’s true Granddaddy.

HEADUCATION: YOU NEVER KNOW SHY FX, MON, BIG IN DA JUNGLE

I consider ORIGINAL NUTTAH, the 1994 classic JUNGLE anthem, by SHY FX & UK APACHI, to be the greatest DRUM N BASS track in history.

It’s a difficult point to argue, because it really is…
