Do T.O DJ's play in the UK

The Vinyl Syndicate boys have been bringing UK headliners for years, and I was just curious how often (if at all) our boys fly over to England to play.

prolly close to never......noone has really heard of them over there(except for the DJ's themselves)

They have enough DJ's, and really don't need any others

As well, it seems that being a jungle DJ in the UK today isn't much. The scene has moved towards UKG and that's why so many of the larger DJ's are often on Tour in North America and other places.

I'm sure some heads recognize some Canadian talent as Vinyl Syndicate won the british Knowledge mag award last year for best international label or somethin like dat.

How can you say that the scene has moved towards UKG??? I think it has moved more towards breaks than garage, DJ Zinc being the prime example of that. However, there is still a very active jungle scene in the UK.

Every Slammin Vinyl party still has a wikkid jungle lineup that would make any Tdot junglist drool and there are club nights every week.

the jungle scene is going through a bit of a come back, now that UKG has moved a more badboy breaks sounds all the thugs have started going to those events and the jungle parties have had way better vibes as a result...this is what I saw i London over the summer anyway...the Helter Sketler tent at the Godskitchen Global Gathering was the biggest tent of all and it was packed and going off...

yeah, there is ALOT of violence in UK at the garage parties, kind of how it was at jungle parties a few years back......which is a good thing for the whole dnb scene

If anyone ever goes on the DOA board, they will know that dnb isn't dead at all.....more parties and club nights than ever before over there, drum abd bass is alive and kicking, too bad that over here its seemed to cool down a bit

...because over there they don't vibe people for what clothes they wear or what new tunes they heard on the internet, they just party to forget about work....this is the most over used critique but over the past year the scene has become a big fashion show filled with some of the biggest fakes(flakes?) I've ever seen....not to mention the lack of all ages events on a semi-weekly basis closes off the scene to younger people who now have to get their fix from radio shows or a bi or tri monthly party...

There is a little resergence in DnB
in the UK.

But UKG still rules.

Crews Like So Solid, Pay As U Go, and my personal Favorite,

Heartless Crew: DJ Fonti MC's Bushkin, Mighty Moe

Are Breaking alot of ground in to the Mainstream Urban Market

UK hip-hop (would be the closest comparison)

But this isn't what UKG is all about....
UKG is broad in that it has alot of sub genres

Think about this:

DnB is considered rave music catagorized with trance, house, breakbeats, Techno, etc.

in the UK. UKG is more urban oriented, for example like hip-hop, RnB,
at least the people that I mentioned above

For more info ckeck out

They got some great mixed sets for you to listen to

Unfortunately zinc plays garage breaks. Even then he looks down on them.

In kingston, where the scene for everything is small, you'll hear progressive house, trance, and techno at one party....But oftentimes i play DnB alongside hip hop and reggae dj's.

Its odd how in different places, different styles of music get placed under the same categories

btw,
Lush & L Natural
played Trouble On Vinyl at the Notting Hill Carnival on Aug. 27th

Just about every well know uk drum & bass dj surfaced to play that weekend, so I'm impressed that anyone from overseas got booked.

I don't know who is paying Pure Silk to big up UKG in the jungle forum but in any case, I think he's wrong. Check the BBC website and they list Dance as trance, prog, techno, etc and Urban as DnB, hip hop and UKG.

Personal opinion: no matter how you categorize UKG it still sucks. but hey, to each their own.......

ya, who's paying pure silk?

i wondered before if pure silk was record lable, i'm more sure of that now. And i'm pretty sure there is a UKGarbage compilation called pure silk.

jungleboy,

if you were refering to me, then i was not making a big deal about naming(sp?) yourself after a label.
the reason i brought it up is because pure silk seems to be trying to promote the UKG sound to us. Promoting is fine, but when you hire someone (or do it yourself) to hang out on msg.boards for the sole purpose of discretly pluggin it, thinking that no one will notice, then there is a problem.
