hear in the main stream are too tiring and not really that nice. It gets
a lot of hate from people here ut I think they.re 'ust trying to
preser"e their dance music culture, which important here. I also
ha"e a minor distain for EDM ?Im not 'udging people, I 'ust ha"e no

"G%House". G house isn.t commonly defined ut its Deep House
with a lot of Hip%Hop and 0&6 influences. Its my fa"ourite su%
genre ecause it has loads of attitude ?6en +earce, Bolomo etc@.

If I.m honest with you there are still much igger hipsters than me
who listen to shit I.d ne"er e"en understand. Its not exciting ut they
all .get it., and its not drugs, ut that explains why there are all these
huge DKs from 0esident <d"isor who ne"er actually release music.
I don.t get it... those kids are too edgy e"en for me
tw "Dustep" has mutated into the craHiest things. ?/kream and
6enga and <rtwork who asically started the genre in 9roydon ha"e
all stopped making it and mo"ed to house@
