Noise and Japes, on account of extreme laziness and craziness has been getting FAT.

However, it's getting whipped into shape under your noses and will be back with a new and improved Noise and Japes 2 SOON... :) (in the meantime, pretty much all hundred or so previous blogposts are becoming DRAFTS! don't be alarmed)..!

--[Sat 8th edit: DMCA got on my back, so all songs are linked to mediafire/youtube, none hosted by myself]
--[Fri 14th edit: After a dance of death with the DMCA I stand defeated; not hosting / linking any in this post (apart from previously ok links from other posts)! boo. Also in a Welsh internet black-hole until Tuesday so unable to update until now (in work!)] badbadbad. Here we go:

Blliiiiimey, hello!

Flappy 2011! I trust your NYE was good! I was DJing at a lovely house party in Brum, sufficed to say I took IMMENSE relish in hurtling a good 15-20 people into the new year to the sound of:

Mousse T - I'm Horny

hahahahahhaha whoa, that's horny. Excellent. 2011 is looking mind-blowingly exciting so far; I've developed a new found appreciation for font size variegations and soy milk, although I'm not sure how long that'll last...But seriously (ha), judging from the AMAZING latter half of 2010, 2011 is sizing up to be a bloody excellent year for music.

To be more specific:

  • thanks to the internet (in particular wordpress, beatport and bandcamp) forward-thinking music lovers have the tools to start a label on a shoestring, thus enabling SO much more music to get out to an audience. YAY.
  • genres are blossoming: futurebass is getting up on all fours now, dubstep has proliferated into a myriad of subgenres and is blessing the charts with more and more popstep, and the uk grime and funky scene is explodingggg. Even the BBC is starting to get more switched on to good music < was impressed to see that on front of their news site! Fantastic. 

Lucy's notable good musicy-related things about 2010:
Myspace music finally realised they were shit, paid some developers and crawled into the 21st century 
Justin Bieber becomes bearable at -800% tempo
Rinse FM got an Ofcom licence!! JAMMY. 

Now, working on true Lucy timescale and avoiding any sort of resolution to flirt with punctuality I'm going to do what should've been done at the end of 2010, which is to have a rundown of:

 the best 25 tracks released in 2010!

However I'm not going to do mine (yet!), but I'm going to give you the lists of two dear friends who are also humble, indirect contributors to Noise and Japes: Billie (fucking amazing dubstep/grime/electro DJ, recently had his 25min mix played by Mistajam on Radio 1Xtra) and Dom (the walking Encyclopaedophile Britannica of Life (you can't spell wisdom without dom); specialist subjects: medicine, and knowing the release date of pretty much any dance music in the last 10 years. Also resembles a tall stick of bamboo).

Although biologically male, their tastes are definitely more feminine than mine, which is hugely refreshing :) get ready for a gentle electroexperimentalshoegazeyjizz in yer ear..

(note, I'm gonna host the supergoodies, but put in the most part of the mediafire legwork too (>>), although these links aren't my responsibility! I urge you, please, BUY THE EPs/CDs of what takes your fancy!)
