I HAD BIG POST AND TRY PRESS COPY AND IT DELETED $$$$ $$$$ $$$$ SO HERES THE GIST:
> heard Choice FM playing new (former) so solid member RNB tune, nothing special, just "okay", (really synthy, break was standarly "ok", nuttin to write home about. The UK rapper on the verse was interesting: he started off with US accent, then it slowly went londonised, then he try rap offbeat which was a bit embarrasing for me to hear, even ).
> also heard K2 family new hiphop tune. Again, ok, but it prolly wont be as big as "bouncing flow".
So you see? UKG is like the genre by which you can (try) get respect for ur RNB or hiphop in this country. WTF? The only reason Misteeq ('roll on' was dutty by the way, admit it) even have a record deal on which they can release RNB these days is because they did UKG FIRST! If they started off with RNB, you wouldnt have heard of them.
UK Garage holds all the bandwagoners while they wait to do what they wanted to originally (usually RNB or hiphop), meanwhile, leaving a path of destruction in their wake (ie poorly produced UKG tunes tryin to verge on the RNB/HH).
Why is UKG having so much pinned on it; everyone clingin on to it to get as close to the genre they prefer as possible.
Wiley blatantly wants to do hiphop, you can tell in his wannabe Timberland beats - now that hes screwed UKG, hes prolly got enuff ppl on his side to make an RNB track now.
Everyones milking the cow UKG before its dead.
Funnily enough, some of the best produced nuskool UKG Ive heard in 2002 is the B+Q advert.
