GDD™ 2010 Roundup: Part II

pic: yimmys yayo

If you don’t like something… then change it. And that’s just what happened in 2010. Subdivisions of dubstep, garage, jungle and house all conglomerating into a category devoid of labels or genres. In 2006, a young no-name producer from London named Burial curated a haunting sound unlike anything I’d ever heard before. Ambient, yet subtly brutal. A musical enigma. This year, a similar story arose. Another Londoner. Another mind-numbing sound. Another performance that demands the recognition of the music world. His name is James Blake. After the success of his CMYK and Klavierwerke EPs, he is set to release his self-titled full length album on Feb 7, which packs a soulful and madly emotional collection of songs that has been hugely backed and supported by the BBC1. With labels like Night Slugs, Sound Pellegrino, and Hyperdub leading the pack of electronic interlopers, look for these post-genre artists to dramatically impact the sound of 2011.

    man, I use to love girl unit and l-vis 1990 but I instantly lose all respect for people who ask for their mp3s to be removed.

    I'll be uploading all of your tracks to mediafire for everyone to download.

    ohh wait, they are all already there.
