"Just to butter it up...we got a gun shot in there". Something out of People Just Do Nothing.

this video is the bomb. in case anyone is wondering, the tune he's working on there is 'endorse & set it' by el-b and roxy.

El b is a certified legend of the ukg scene. His work after the groove chronicles era is truly underrated

Nice! Makes a lovely change from listen to middleclass posh people talking about "transiants" and techie computer shit. The best people to listen to are the ones whos just make music, and don't talk fuckin techie shit. Music is to be heard not watched. This is a very good video for beginners and all - to watch! Bigup music for the criminal class (not sayin El-B is, he just has street soul and attitude, not elistist privalliaged bulshit!)

to everyone watching this in 2017...we have to preserve the legacy of this period of UK music. if you got pirate radio tapes post them! deja 92.3, rinse 100.3, it dont matter...if you got dubplates, acetates, refixes, even cassette tapes, rip to mp3 and post them! if this stuff isn't preserved, the livest, most organic time in UK music will be lost forever. i watch this interview and el-b just personifies a whole era of the best, most soulful music that ever came out the UK. i really mean this from my heart, this is a PSA. record everything you have from this era, and put it on the internet where everyone can see it, or it'll be gone....forever. and the world will have lost something truly great.

yesman 28 (2 years ago)
shut up you melt
El-B never made dubstep he was one of the founding members of the instrumental garage era that evolved into Dubstep and Grime, get the facts right please it's important. I'm a UK Garage, Grime and Dubstep scholar there's not much about the origin of these sounds i don't know. Shit my channel alone proves that

Beats on the track at 18:52 are by a guy called Opus who produces with El-B. You can find him on Soundcloud as Opus1st. I dont think the track was ever released and I'm unsure about the vocalist but would definitely love to find out who she is.
Alex Vincent (2 years ago)
+Joel Carlo I really want to listen to that track at 18:52 I tried googling the lyrics to see if the vocalist was sampled but from what I took away this dude was often recording original tracks with vocalists

"When you've been digital for a while, I don't think you want crackles" ...haha classic comment. but 8 years later and vinyl is still here - not like it was but its alive and well excellent upload btw - loved it - cheers

This is awesome. Shame you can't really hear the bass on the tracks he's talking about. Needed a better mic...
Rob Johnson (4 years ago)
Learnt a lot from this
BIG PASTA (4 years ago)
Burial's main inspiration right there. 
Polofayot (1 year ago)
yes, mainly towards the beats, uk garage spark thing, there s Photek also as a big influence of Will
Tee Tilla (4 years ago)
35" and onwards... Sounds like he's talking about Serato? Or that Stanton piece of rubbish... But either way that was funny.
rorz999 (4 years ago)
+Tee Tilla Yeah Serato for sure predates this video by a few years, but the garage / dubstep / grime guys were slow to pick up on it as everything was so vinyl-centric for so long. Definitely funny watching this in 2014 though when we are all so familiar with the technology!
Tee Tilla (4 years ago)
Funny. I would have had Serato for a few years by then, got it as soon as soon as it came out, and I've seen most of this video several times but only saw at last part yesterday! Man is a legend though.
rorz999 (4 years ago)
Definitely talking about Serato. This is quite an old video so it was newish technology at the time!
Tom R (4 years ago)
who is he referring to at 32:55? kyle brown? cole brown? carl brown? I can't seem to catch the right name.
Andy Dextrous (3 years ago)
Karl "Tuff Enuff" brown, formerly of Tuff Jam with Matt Jam Lamont
Tom R (4 years ago)
found him. it's Karl Brown
mishabruml (4 years ago)
Roxy & EL-B - Endorse & Set It is the track
Dafaa (4 years ago)
Leave the e.q flat!? So Leave all the sound effects etc with low end while having low end subs etc? they'd fuck your mix sonnn
rorz999 (2 years ago)
TSDREX that's not what he meant. It's about finding samples etc that fit naturally with each other rather than having a wall of different sounds and EQing the fuck out of them
What are the tracks at 14:13  and  18:52  ?
Şafak (3 years ago)
Yes what is the 18:43 song name?
Very primitive production sparks creativity. El-B proves that here.
QuiksilverVM (3 years ago)
+Rainier Albertsz It's all about the effect automation for the bass sounds. And proper layering for the drums.. Take it easy, think about each move you do and what it's going to do to the sound.
RellyAlexander (4 years ago)
+Rainier Albertsz Decent low end harmonics, process to fuck, render, re-process, re-render, just keep doing that till you're happy
Rainier Albertsz (4 years ago)
+BetrayerHTX neuro sounds are so f-ing hard to make, they make my head explode

"I use volumes, panning and EQ and that's it" What a boss, a lot of producers these days should take note of these words and pay attention to the basics.

+LAHegarty We have to worry about it *less*, cause if you use things like U-he Diva... forget about it, you have to resample.
