a good mc knows when to shut the fuck up and let the music do the talking. unfortunately those mc's seem to be few and far between

In my local pub a couple of years ago, the landladys son who was 17 had a few of his mates over, they all claimed to be mc's, so we asked em to give us a demonstration, and they all seemed desperate to dribble out 2000000 words in a minute, we asked em if they could name any really good mc's and they rolled out a few names I had never heard of, I then asked em about the history of mc'ing and they didnt have a clue, I asked em if they knew who chuck d was (thinking they might have a vague idea) and they didnt, so I asked if they knew about public enemy, again they didnt. so I presumed that their understanding of what a good mc was, was based on what they are hearing nowadays i drum and bass as apposed to mc's that tell stories or make people aware of polital messages. I wonder if they have grown out of that yet???

Unfortunately, the shit MC's outweigh the decent ones by about 90% to 10% respectively.

I think that pretty much sums it up. In my experience most I've heard at rave's or on tapes go on too much, and aren't even very good.

There's the occaisional 'diamond in the rough' though, such as MC GQ.

See i can't stand him, SHOUTING drunkenly over the sets, hes ruined plenty of wicked eclipse/edge sets :doubt:
I agree with that, Man parris is awful, to the point of ruining nearly every set ive heard him on. Fair enough, he's one of the original mc's, but he aint any good. Can't beleive he used to get so many bookings. :?

Good and bad..the Ribbz,s of this world hype the crowd without overdoing it..i cant see why some mc,s have to babble through a whole tune...if there was ment to be a vocal there the producer would,ve put 1 in!!!

Most are pants, quite like GQ and Conrad though.

On a tangent - MC and 'bloke who hypes the crowd' are 2 different groups of people imo.

MC chats shit all over the tunes and the set, all the time.

Hyping bloke introduces new dj and shouts for the crowd to get lively, blow whistles etc, then lets the dj do the talking, with very few interuptions in the set - save for if a rewind is called cos everyone goes mad or if he needs to get everyone going again etc - like on the labyrinth sets 'labyrinth on a friday night -who fuckin lovs it, shout to the sexy girls (as oposed to some babble for 20mins mnmnmnmnmnm stuff)

most of em need a muzzle imo, but there are a fair few that contribute rather than detract from a set. just took a mate to his first proper jungle party a week back & he said he really liked the music but that the mcs were just shouting crap over it & ruining it for him. made me laugh alright about how he could pick up on that so quickly.

what really annoys me is when they pick out someone in the crowd & tell them to start dancing as if it's not okay for the person to enjoy the music in their own way, or if they like a tune so much they want a rewind, & then tell the crowd if they want a rewind to call for it just so they can pretend the crowd called for it, then they have the nerve to reach back & rewind the tune themselves! that ever happens to me he's gonna get a quick word about not touching my records & then i'm putting a machete next to the decks. :evil:
