B Boys On E (part 1073)


(talking of rave flashbacks) compare this Iggy Azalea tune

with this 16 year old Marc Acardipane track (when the demon-horde synth kicks in)

the whooshing, ascending riff-noise -- often just more a whine or siren-peal than an actual riff --is one of the idiomatic features of the trap/ratchet/etc sound, it's a relatively new sound in rap production

can't think of any good examples off the top of my head, but hear it a lot

B-Boys On E, rappers getting "pillish" -- again, sense of history repeating....  time becomes recursive
