    it is a good tune, wouldn't call it neurofunk though.

    saying that, most of the artists people have posted in here i wouldn't consider neurofunk either (only a select few have really nailed the sound imo)

    Yeah that Eastcolours bit definitely isn't, but considering that Ed Rush and Optical are supposedly the start of neurofunk, what makes them more neuro than BTK, Mefjus or Audio?

    ed rush and optical paved the way for that techy sound, but i still wouldn't call them neurofunk.

    neurofunk = brain funk

    it should do something to your head that shouldn't be possible with sound. There's complex techy stuff, and then there's neuro. I'm not stating this as fact, it's just my take on it

    the guys who've nailed it IMO:
    noisia (even though they wouldn't call their music neurofunk)
    phace
    billain

    more will come i'm sure of it

    AGAIN, I AM NOT THE DECIDING AUTHORITY ON NEUROFUNK, THIS IS JUST MY VIEW ON IT

    The Imperial EP from Noisia was big, Emperor had big tunes (Monolith, Smokescreen),Billain (Total Darkness, Batbots), Mefjus, Maztek (Galactica, Limber)
    and the upcoming The Upbeats LP is gonna be murder too

    I agree. I would add Mefjus and Jade into that though. To be honest I think Mefjus sounds like old Phace & Misanthrop.

    Definitely wouldn't put Audio or Optiv & BTK in with the Neuro crowd. They're more Techy.

    opinions eh,

    optiv was making neuro with c4c before noisia and phace were even conceived!!


    They might have re-defined it but it existed before them and so should include artists who dont sound like phace and noisia

    This is such a brilliant example of an anal drum and bass argument i love it haah.




    Heres a good question, If Ed rush and Optical are the original definition of Neuro, then who sounds more like them.... Billain or Audio?


    OR one could argue that words change in definition over time. Thus Hedrush and Hoptical are no longer neuro... hmm real head scratcher

    it's clear for me.
    BSE's new album From the Shadows was fckin amazing and it still is, but I really can't forget my old good favorite Audio or for example Mefjus ;)
