Nobody Move


DJ Moortje - Nobody Get Hurt (from I'm Back 1997)

This track is really interesting to someone like myself who never had a background in Drum and Bass, yet listens to plenty of music that was affected by it's existence. Discovering Bubbling has led me to rewind to the early days of Jungle to find missing pieces of the puzzle, but I haven't spent much time with DnB outside of a bit of DJ Zinc and DJ Hype. Even then it's not really for me, but Moortje pulling up Yellowman's Breakbeat hit like it was the Murder She Wrote Riddim is exciting as a parallel between genres. Technically and historically there's plenty to compare the two in a Venn Diagram, which forces me to backtrack down the paths I missed first time around and never particularly cared about. Questioning relevance is even more confusing and if the theory that technology=genres is right it will only get more so.

Yeah that's probably why I dig it so much. I like Jungle especially the quirky weirder kind of stuff and basically that is what this is. I never thought about it like that, great observation.

Any weirder drum & bass recommendations would be rad,I really know nothing. I think if I was even like 5 years older I would have at least caught some of it but my deep interest in electronic music came a little later.
