Some of you might be familiar with the chief beat reasearcher Wayne and Wax at the Rididm Method, known for his widely used "A It Dat" (download) track on Mashit, what he's served up as the 11th contribution to the blogariddim series is a cracking listen too.
Following on from his last glance back at crunk, its another genealogy of the snap sound through as he puts "the common grooves and feedback loops between crunk and clave, reggaeton and ragtime, bhangra and bounce, to name a few."
If anyone is feeling a little auto-didactic and would like to pull back the curtain on the sociology behind these forms of music then he's more than capable of hooking you up with his Harvard class outlines. Many of his more focussed writings are well worth a read, as are his blog break downs of just where the evolutions and memes in this form of music lie.
If you are still looking for the same awesomeness you've come to expect from the most excellent DJ C via his bouncement mix, then get right clicking Blogariddim 19, courtesy of John Eden. Its a hurtling journey back to exclusives from 1998, all in a bouncey, bashment fast chatting whirl of party starters including a wonderful use of Enya 37 minutes in. Check this out for the method behind the madness of the Boston Bounce.
