Jamie Duggan ft. Tezz Kidd (Brownins) - Saving All My Love
Bassline or Niche music (named after the notorious club) was (and still is) a big part of being Northern and hood in the UK. A scene that popped up in Sheffield around the the turn of the millennium and rapidly spread to other Northern ghettos and eventually down to the capital, much like the potent skunk that came from the same origins. The sound, once watered down slightly, even made it in to the charts!
Tunes like this still take me back to my time in Manchester and my many visits to Sheffield in the early to mid naughties. At the time this kind of music would be blaring out of every tinted Golf R32, full of badman, and mobile phone on the back row of the bus.
Shouts to Jefé and all the Sheffield crew!
