paradigm shift? well lemme have a think
yes, down with this (although 2015 output been a bit flat, seemingly). that said, even its most fervent proponents ie. Dominic Datwun would not claim it as a Paradigm Shift
niiiice - recombinant, though, another nuum-composite - and also it's gone away now, hasn't it?
more a late 2000s thing? - fun enough, up to a point - the bastardization of dubstep and the best thing that could happen to it IMO (better than postdubstep's delta of diffusion) . Generative of some genuinely 21st Century sounds. Yes, verily, a paradigm shift.
a lusher Mustard-y extension of drill?
a distant relative of funky house? broken beat meets kwaito
s'alright. recombinant bizniz though.
in the EDM sense (and things like DJ Snake, 'turn down for what') pretty exciting, but wears out its welcome. Bit paradigm shifty, though. In the pure hip hop sense, gangsta part 345, so no P's shifted whatsoever.
the IDM-ification of a 13 or 14 year old genre; instrumentalizm, MC-free. As stand-alone audio objects, often impressively ugly, imposingly abstract. Stripped of all social energy = big minus for me.
yes love it, my favorite music of the 2010's so far probably. Although Mustard has spread himself a bit thin. But the extension of a long-running, not-terribly-fast-moving West Coast rap continuuum, if judged sternly. No Paradigm Shift, then. And perhaps run out of steam now, judging by what's been on the radio this year.
sort of baroque brostep really....
cheesy! carnival sounds = knees up mother brown bizniz really. what Dr Paul Gilroy calls the sounds of "small island rapture"
Dissneus dude also mentions these are older-rooted sound that achieved wider popularity in the last 5 years:
- Jersey/Philly Club
Of these I'd have to say that only footwork gets beyond recombinant bizness OR exoticified developing-world twist to existing North American/UK/European template
and footwork - it's got boring, don't you think? it's exhausted my interest anyway.
Another person on the tread mentions ballroom as a long established sound reaching a wider audience
Nightslugsy stuff also mentioned as nu - and i would agree that while mostly composite/recombinant they did in certain instances come up with some bracing and imposingly different - Classical Curves etc - but was it actually enjoyable I suppose is what I ask myself.... listening I would often think "yes this is striking - literally - the rhythms battering at one's body - but do i ever feel like listening to it again?' but perhaps this a lightweight objection.... i certainly don't mind "punishing" but there has to be some sense of bursting jouissance coming out of the ordeal
Overall i'd have to say, the tally is pretty poor, in terms of paradigm shifts
