WHAT IS NOW
WHAT IS THE AESTHETIC OF NOW
I would unironically be hyped if that ubermensch-looking art got back into style.
Secretly want to buy and frame this for my bathroom but figure it might be a bit stupid-looking.
Lol no. Minimal techno and ambient are still progressing well. The appropriation of house by the larger crowd is likely going to lead to more techno/psytrance inspired genres becoming more widely know.
i hope minimal music becomes bigger. i feel like the excessive sounds of festival house and trap music will give way to dance songs with fewer, stronger elements.
I think it's already happening.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhQJi2tDrjc
In England at least.
We'll see Grime MC's collaborating with with dnb producers throughout the year as 140 beats become passé and the grime hype slowly fades. It'll start with something predictable like Stormzy or Wiley with Chase & Status, we'll see some unexpected bangers like Novelist destroying a Kasra track or Champion throwing a curveball with a 170 Bpm juggernaut featuring Riko Dan. Then it'll get more and more diluted until we're seeing Netsky ft. Tinie Tempah on MTV base.
I'm calling a Bieber/Craig David/Kurupt Fm collab pre2017
It'll be a world-type thing. Tropical EDM/Diplo-type stuff will meld with Carribbean and African style, and there will be at least one major indie band that'll do the Vampire Weekend/Talking Heads thing really successfully
trance is really coming into popularity. Even my pleb friends who were listening to trap last year are getting into it. Trance would create a fertile ground for mainstream early 00's vaporwave-type revival. Kinda stoked.
Also, just a random thought: if by some miracle, the general population developed patrician tastes, would you still seek to go against the grain?
Ambient, minimalist techno? Pic related is the OG.
Also, Immunity by Jon Hopkins.
Modern shoegaze doesn't have a defining band right now. M83 is too old, DIIV suck, no one knows about the New York bands (the Deprecation Guild, Asobi Seksu, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart), and Porter Robinson went overboard on the cringe aesthetic. Someone's gonna come up and take the mantle. Maybe it'll be...
... me... ;0
