On a Cultural Tip: Their Culture

Found on an old compilation Lekcja Rytmiki Czyli ZaƂamanie Nerwowe Perkusji released 15 years ago by non-existing now Polish magazine MACHINA.

Originally released by legendary Emotif Recordings in 1995.

All the elements fit perfectly in this tune: beats, samples, melody and vocal.

RINSE Out! Selecta!

  There has been dubstep once, there has been also uk garage... There has been grime and there has been house too.
What would happen if we cooked all the above ingredients up? UK Bass Music - a genre promoted by, among the others, radio station/label Rinse.

  Rinse originated from the pioneering 90s when pirate radio stations were rulling not only London but the whole UK.
These are also the times when such a labels as Metalheadz, RAM or True Playaz raised in a fledgling jungle/drum'n'bass scene.

As you probably noticed we live in a constant evolution so it is not a suprise that breakbeats have been evolving too. So, as a result, the beginning of 21st century brought to light new, slower sounds, later known as garage nad dubstep.
This is also the period of birth of the new generation of DJs/producers who have been releasing their crazy ideas via Rinse.
Pioneers of dubstep Benga, Skream or Kode 9 started their career here. Also grime stars Dizzee Rascal and Wiley began their musical journey at Rinse.

Rinse ialso gave birth to Katy B - vocalist who will suprise us more than once in the future.
Discovered by DJ Zinc (featured on his two EPs) Katy B showed her vocal talent on a debut LP Katy On A Mission [Rinse, 88697850722] released by Rinse in 2010.

  Rinse today (both as a radio station - most of the producers run their shows, and as a record label) gathers various artist such as, already mentioned DJ Zinc - paving the way of crack house, as well as rising stars of house/dubstep: Fomao and Royal-T.
Royal-T - Inside The Ride [Rinse, RINSECD 027D]


SO, if you don't know what to do in the autumn evenings, get the hot drink, switch on  Rinse FM (106.8 FM) and...        MAY THE BASSLINE BE WITH YOU!
