Saying goes that Bristol is only marginally better but does have a few great acts like Portishead and massive attack. I also wouldn't say DnB originated in Bristol, nor is the lakota world famous. It was a half decent house club back in the day but then Cardiff had the hip'po which some in Cardiff thought was great but was decidedly average.
The best description has already been given. Cardiff is top down and Bristol is bottom up. I'd certainly say both cities have lots to offer and in reality they aren't too far apart.
I'll rephrase that, Lakota is a leading club for bottom up scenes, while Motion is Top-down. (17th? best club in the world I think - fabric is 15th.) Lakota is now a driving force in DnB/Bassline - people like My Nu Leng and Eats Everything have become HUGE and they both claim it being thanks to Lakota selling out events every week.
And yes DnB originated in both London and Bristol, the scene grew in Bristol when it broke off from the Jungle scene.
This is super OT. Cuppa tea anyone?
Who compiles these best club lists? I remember everyone lauding the hacienda in m/cr as being one of the best clubs in the world. It wasn't even one of the best clubs in m/cr.
It is all subjective and I am pretty sure if I looked hard enough I'd find the hip'po in a top ten somewhere.
Regardless, I liked lakota. I've just been to better that's all.
I'd rather be no one than someone with no one.
