hen it comes to bass, grime, garage, funky and even dubstep to an extent, there is still a stigma around a lot of labels that they are going to be the bad guys. This for the most part is a pretty wide misconception, given that the majority of people running the independent labels often share the same passion for the music as the artists they have involved. This often leads to certain figures not getting a lot of the credit they deserve.

The relatively niche realm of 160bpm is one that, until recent years, has had difficulty breaking into the forefront of the underground scene. The very nature of footwork, juke, and all offshoots of this diverse tempo is that of spontaneity, often comprising of heavily syncopated drum patterns, erratic vocal snippets and unruly structures. These fast, complex rhythms were synonymous with the dancing associated with footwork,a street dance that coincided with the Chicago-born genre in the 1990s. It is therefore not surprising to see why the genre has been floating around the edges of electronic music for so many years. This is arguably what makes it so special however, placing itself within a unique corner of the underground scene, yet consistently making a global impact.

In recent years the underground scene in the UK has been blessed with a wide range of talent from outside of the nation’s Capital. Of course there has always been skilled producers, singers, and MC’s in all pockets of the country however the social media revolution seems to have leveled the playing field, allowing someone from a small town in the midlands to have more or less the same opportunities and access as those in the big cities. It’s a transition which has been of huge benefit to the musical world with the only real drawback coming in the form of over saturation.
