Mixtape: Bok Bok & Manara – What Is Niche?
Oh yeah, felt like this had to be reintroduced…
Is Niche dead? Well, no — it’s been kicking around in Northern England for donkey’s, and it will continue to long after the rest of us have lost interest. But for a brief period between late-07 and early-08, it was the in thing, and this Diplo-commissioned mix by Night Slugs residents/Lower End Spasm bloggers Bok Bok & Manara — then called Faggatronix — will doubtless be the last shred of Niche left on many a hipster’s laptop come 2009. Diplo’s probably already forgotten it existed.
