Yeah, that guy made me think about music more seriously. Got some of the usuals on the list, probably known to you, haven't done any "digging" for this kind of music in a long time, thought that movement is dying, is it? Any more artists like this you can point out? I listened to that Karriem Riggins track Virgo. That's the kind of stuff I need, thanks.
ah, not dying at all, growing I'd say! But I just want MORE of it... and the good stuff. There's so many mediocre, derivative beats that show up in 'related' artists. Ah well! I guess it's a good sign in a way! Brilliance speaks for itself.
A lot of noise on the internet, too much choice, but not enough that really blows your mind. I've overlistened to everything by Flying Lotus - Jai Paul, too now!
died already id say. Soooo many beat makers with flat lining brains looping the same samples as everybody else cause they're too lazy to find something new to sample. The scene is like a big net now that scoops up all the people that are lacking way wayyyyy too much in the creativity department and frankly lacking in musical talent.
lone made those beats years ago! Check out and rinse samiyam
Sam bakers album
rap beats vol 1
and especially the unreleased ones on youtube! Good luck
I'm a huge fan of Flying Lotus. I've been dying to catch him live, but it seems like he never does shows in the southeast. He's not exactly similar to Flying Lotus, but Teebs kind of reminds me of him. I can't post any links, but his name on Soundcloud is Teebsio. I caught his set at Tipper and Friends last year and it was really good.
Yeah - audio/visual stuff was really good. It was a shame the venue he played had such crappy sound! Brixton Academy - it's like an old music hall - probably OK for a rock band, but RUBBISH for stuff like Flylo.
I wouldn't call myself a "fan" of his music, though I've got his first two albums and I really like them. Personally, I use his music while I'm studying, it really works to keep me concentrated while distracting me from everything else. Also, his music has inspired me a few times while making my own songs.
Finally, I just love way too much the fact that he has two songs with Thom Yorke.
