We’re taking it to the (electronic) streets. I listened to the latest album by Flume. I needed a break from Chance the Rapper (pure fire). Let’s delve deep.
He’s more than just Harlem Shake. He’s probably on a top 10 most friendly to hip hop EDM list. “Body” is groovy. “Day One” makes me wanna lift reps for Jesus. M.I.A. always finds her way on hot beats, like on “Temple.” “Kung Fu” goes hard in the paint with Pusha & Future, and is probably my favorite track on the album. The mix of music is perfect for my walks during work or if I wanna pretend like I’m walking out to Wrestlemania or a UFC card in Vegas.
Fight dreams aside, on a scale of a Harlem Heat in chains to King Booker winning the World Heavyweight Title, Aa gets a 7.5 out if 10.
I listened to this for 2 tracks. Classic (which came out in ’14) and New York City, with Cam’ron. What kind of album has Walk the Moon (Best for Last) and someone reppin’ Dipset? The Knocks are technically EDM, but their sound is more pop 2016 disco. I’m not a fan of the unnecessary Classic remix with Fetty Wap, but I do like Comfortable with X-Ambassadors. All the songs are catchy at worst.
On the scale of Tony Yayo to Lloyd Banks, 55 gets a 6 out of 10 for Classic making me want to go to the beach and Cam’s song making me wanna strut down Midtown
Rick Rubin was playing Mortal Konbat in the middle of a great hash session I bet. He then remembered the remembered the greatest video game soundtrack in history. And then he wanted to best that effort with Star Wars because why not? /satire
A variety of EDM subgenres are involved here. Bauuer, Kaskade, GTA, and Flying Lotus have the stand out tracks in my opinion. Shouts to Claude VonStroke to having the only songwith lyrics. I wouldn’t call this a must listen for any raver or nerf herder. I will say this is a decent effort. A couple of tracks to skip.
On the scale of Jar Jar Binks to Yoda breaking out the Saber to fight Dooku, I give this a 5 out of 10
