Production - His new stuff may be a bit naff but his older tracks are gol.Ganja Man is a better ragga track than Original Nuttah and Bad Ass is better than Super Sharp Shooter at jump up gangsta style. There, I've said it,
Dj - If its jump up, he's your man at the decks. Still the king though Andy C and others are better dnb djs.
As far as Hazard being called a great producer, I'm not too sure about him being the best new wave jump up producer, perhaps. I am pretty sure that he'll be called a clownstepper by the same people calling him the best, as has happened with Clipz, Pendulum and TC. My prediction - next year he'll be the king of clownstep according to DOA.
djing wise -
if we're talking jump up party vibes, in a club environment, mashin up de place with the riddim, it's only gotta be . he's got the right mix and selection, and when he's on form, (i've seen him stink a couple of times) no one can come close really.
and on the same production vibe, i guess if you're lookin for that strictly jump up party flava, then the playaz camp is where to look. hazard, taxman, g dub, jayden etc etc etc.
original sin - don't be silly.
fukken massive, it makes me go a little like this....
Producer - hazard without a doubt. I can't see hazard being called a clownsteppa. His tunes are so unique in their own way. Any hazard tune i hear dropped at a rave; from Selector to killers don't die i can't stop myself getting up and raving my tits off His production is solid as a rock.
Dj - To be honest at raves no ones overly impressed me other than the main man himself Hype.
shit i forgot about escape
still waitin for that fear of the future tune
its out on musik hertz in a few weeks
had it as my ring tone for the last 6 months
from wot every1 has said its faily obvious that it seems to be the boys linked with ganja/hazard
G dub, Taxman, Jaydan, pleasure, modified motion, escape, shimah, recluse, steppa, mutated forms, and even those in the outer circle and the producers that get a rinse on thier sets (logan d, soulpride, sounclash, majistrate & nicol) have huge about of talent
so much more thought seems to go into the final sound and feel of a tune
its a shame ppl put TC in the same bag and call it clownstep
TC had a fat 10 month spell last year from when deep started gettin dropped and every tune that came out was a floor filler
Where's My Money/Deep VIP
plus his everyday remix, pornstar & game over vip, drop any1 of these tunes and it will get ppl movin
anythin since get that girl would probably make me leave the room (maybe with the exception of raise the roof)
sorry for the ramble but i think TC has got huge amounts of potential but his ego seems to be getting in the way of making good music (why change drinks for the album, its got cheesy guitar instead of deep style bass)
