Throughout a class of genres and micro-genres, there seems to be a new musical vocabulary emerging, one centered around the way vocals are being manipulated to create moods and atmospheres defined by their amorphous, often spectral nature. Ghost voices. It's something like what happened in the film Inception , the way music could be heard through layers of dreams. That effect-- as though sound were floating through several walls of consciousness, its outlines blurred to be almost unidentifiable-- has something to do with the fact that we've heard a lot of these vocals before in their original form; they're often samples that have been resurrected and re-articulated to express a sort of new slang. You can hear it in dance music and hypnagogic pop, in witch house, drone, and art rock, the various presentations just as disparate as they are interconnected.
Sounds like: J Dilla, The Avalanches What's so good? By James Curtis | April 7th, 2011 If someone was to tell me that I am the new J Dilla, I would probably make them my friend for the rest of my life. Then, in some gross, vain music ritual, I’d have them repeat it to me every day.
Witch house is occult -themed house music , heavily influenced by the chopped and screwed hip-hop movement created by DJ Screw in Houston, Texas during the 1990s as well as shoegaze and industrial music . The concept started out as a joke, with Travis Egedy (commonly known by the stage name Pictureplane ) and his friends coining the term in 2009 to refer to their style of music. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [ 4 ] Shortly after being mentioned to Pitchfork Media , [ 2 ] blogs and other mainstream music press began to use the term. The definition of the term is disputed.
The reputation of David Psutka's Egyptrixx among beat music cognoscenti was quickly cemented last year by tracks like "Battle for North America" and "The Only Way Up", the latter being one of the brightest cuts to come out of a packed-with-hits Night Slugs camp. His willingness to take the basis of UK funky into techier, more austere turf meant he could stake a potential claim as a progressive-minded genre-tweaker. Still, all through his previous peaks, you could hear his music stretching, testing itself, reaching for something ahead even as it planted a couple solid feet directly in the midst of a spotlit movement. Bible Eyes is what those earlier singles were reaching for, and as a full-length debut it's a bit of a shock-- the familiarization process of a compelling new artist sped up into a rapid succession of surprising revelations. Earlier singles hinted at clean minimalism and deep rhythmic space, but that sound is significantly starker here.
Boubacar Traoré is songwriter and guitarist from Mali. I don't know much about African music (though I will say that this is an incredible recording), so here is some info from Wikipedia: "Traoré first came to prominence in the early 1960s. He had taught himself to play guitar and developed a unique style that blended American Blues music, Arab music, and pentatonic structures found in West Africa's Mande cultural region. He was a superstar in Mali and a symbol of the newly independent country (see History of Mali). His songs were immensely popular and he enjoyed regular radio play.
