    Jonah: You want some REALLY crazy Latin Rascals stuff? Try this one on for size. Whole thing is kicking, but listen to the HAND CUT AND TAPED edits at about 1:40 and 3:44 in this track! They made ALL those edits with a hand editing system and a shitload of adhesive tape. Arthur Baker used to joke that as he watched their mixes play on the the reel to reel, it was nothing but tiny splices of tape and scotch tape on the backside.
    I used to blast this at the club I played at, and it drove people wild.
    FACE TO FACE: "UNDER THE GUN (Latin Rascals Dub)

    As I understand it, the two guys had a bit of a falling out, so now Albert Carerra is just "One Rascal Productions" (IIRC).

    @Paul Sizer Thanks. Love it!

    I've seen Style Wars a few times(gotta re-watch soon, now), but I don't remember this. Maybe the VHS tape(!) didn't translate it well. The reverb! Arthur Russell(according to youtube comments, at least), ha.

    ETA: embedding won't let me do timecodes - jump 3 minutes in.
    Dog barks?! Genius or madness? I'm gonna try and mix it with Ray Parker jr's - Ghostbusters Theme, Huey Lewis and the News - I want a new drug and M - Pop Muzik!

    even though there is a rip roaring rave scene.
    So let's enter the rave ...

    Migraine skank next..a rare UK created dance craze.
    Where you sort of rub your head while pretending to have
    a headache while Skanking..

    Gracious K - "Migraine skank"

    Wiley , Godfather of Grime next which originated in East London just a mile
    down the road from the real Whitechapel this forum takes it's name from.Awesome song...

    Naughty Boy presents Wiley ft Emeli Sande - "I Could Never Be Your Woman"

    Nice varied mix- Bowie and R kelly!

    more modern UK rave stuff II...

    this new rave sound is i suppose the envitable destination
    of people who have been listening to music
    through the modern Rnb era, the Drum N Bass era,
    the UK Garage (speed garage/2 step) era,
    and present Grime and Dubstep Era.

    One artist I think sums it all up at present- Katy B.
    "The song lights on" where the the Mix style is
    dubstep, the house shuffle beat is UK Garage,
    the singing style RnB.And Ms Dynamite
    brings in some pop -grime.

    Katy B - "Lights On"

    then there's "Pass Out". No Party, football stadium, or
    round up of the years best party tunes is without this.
    I can't believe this underground grime tune
    (+ Dub reggae intro, drum n bass outro)
    when i heard it back in 2009 would become
    a huge pop song.i blame dizeee rascal

    Tinie Tempah - " Pass out"

    Back to rougher end of the rave. Ms dynamite again.
    Who seems to be on every underground rave anthem at
    the moment...

    Geeneus ft ms Dynamite- "Get low"

    Meanwhile in the midtempo but still partying
    chill out room. A chilled out UK garage remix of a
    tune by ms Dynamite....

    ms Dynamite- "Boo" (headquarters acoustic remix)

    @ iceland bob

    The Hacienda Club...!!! I used to love 808 state!
    Happy mondays! Madchester all the way...

    Also nice Shola Ama find,doing UK garage,i don't remember that tune.
    Onto some things with less finesse and a bit rawer for the party.

    Ok heres some songs that make a Hip Hop crowd
    Pogo, Mosh and Head Bang like a Rock crowd...

    Run DMC first up...Immense song by true legends. To this day
    "Down with the King" will make people go mental..

    Run DMC - "Down With The King"

    One of my favourite groups from the 90s that just dissappeared..
    The Fuschniks! Love the piano intro..and everybody
    pogoed through the chorus!

    Fu-Schnickens - "True Fuschnick "

    Edit: replaced Young Black Teenagers with Akshon by Killer Mike.
    I like the energy of this song, I also like the way he just crashes
    through the walls in this video
    .Just runs right through them!

    Killer Mike- "Akshon (yeah!)"

    Obviously we had to have House of Pain...

    House of Pain - "Jump around"

    @m3t4lfi3nd I like your style, my friend.

    When I worked as a waiter a couple of years ago, I became good friends with the chef(who the horrible asshole owner later fired on the same night that I walked out, never to return), partly over our overlapping musical tastes. I made two mix CD's for the kitchen, a "light" one and a "heavy" one. He walks out of the kitchen the next day, smiles and says "I like that The Wizard by Black Sabbath is your idea of 'light.'"

    I don't own any Nile records, but I'm planning on picking up a couple, partly because they have for some reason slipped outside of my metal listening in years past, and to help soothe the urge to go outside and burn the world down in response to the new Morbid Angel record.

    Some jump up UK dance music...I will dance to this!
    you like? Everything cool?..

    Foamo -"Everything Cool?"[2008]

    Ahhh , a RNB breakup song you can dance to.
    In the new jack swing+US house genre. I think the
    appropriate lyrics are:

    "give me need diamonds!", "give me pearls!"
    and i gotta buy them!?(I've got to buy 'em)

    don't you know,to be my lady, your mom said
    (your momma said it) child i'm going to need your loving...


    Al B Sure - "Misunderstanding"[1990]

    Al B Sure - "Channel J"[1990]
