>>
they really are, not kididing

I don't really care about the Death Grips, but I hope for their continued success because I'm a big fan of Zach Hill.

When will we start to feel their influence?

No good album has come because of DG yet aside from their own stuff of course.

I feel like Clipping was the result of those guys hearing DG and wanting to take the production to the extreme, while softening the vocals.

If we were to compare them to the influence of Can though, it took until the late 70s for their influence to be seen with Joy Division and PIL.

Yes, OP, you're right. Even if here they're considered a meme, which is the most memetic bullshit somebody could think, they are not only really good but they already have and will influence a lot of people. Ex: Kanye West - Yeezus ( Okay, you may think it's meme bullshit, but is something nontheless)
>>
>>52011934
I always forget about this album, but it's great. What else do they have? I don't know anything about the person/band or whatever. I don't even know what genre it is. I know they collabed with Main Attrakionz which is weird but great.

Check out Ho99o9 (pronounced "horror") on soundcloud. They've directly stated that DG are an influence of theirs.

They sound like DG but with more emphasis on the punk influence rather than the electronic influence.

I think we are already seeing their influence. Beyonce essentially copied them when she surprised every one and released an album with no promotion and music videos for every track. The producer of that album was this new guy named Boots.

Fast forward to the new Run the Jewels album. Many say its sort of like a pop version of the Death Grips sound. I could easily see it. Aggressive lyrics coupled with death grips style beats. Funny thing is, Boots was the producer of that album. Run the Jewels 2 is on most album of the year lists even taking the top spot on Stereogums.

I honestly think their both their sound and antics are already being emulated in popular music.

I agree with this. Let's look at their live shows for one

If you've seen them, or seen footage, It feels inccccredibly new. No one currently has a DJ/keyboardist(sometimes), punk vocalist/rapper, and a live drummer of zach's caliber in a band together. I honestly couldn't classify it into a genre specifically.

If you've seen them, here's what ya got
>early
Andy running the set through(mpk49) while resampling Ride and the song(korg), Zach (Full kit), Ride (sometimes they brought an actual guillotine)
>nldw days (no Andy)
Zach with a kick, floor tom,snare(off) tuned very low, premade ableton set with automated effects on Ride's vocals, more intense Ride +backing tracks.
>SXSW
Andy running the set(mpk49)+extra keyboard parts+manipulating zach's now digital drum signal, Zach(minimal kit+racktom) drumming over skype, crazy intense Ride +backing tracks.
>No Show
>FYF final show
Same as SXSW, except with Zach playing live with the minimal kit +2 cymbols(like in the handcuffs video), Ride. (altered setlist, including Hacker)

They do a harsh noise/drum solo opening every show, and sometimes a second more chill noise/drum section before The Fever.
They also did a few more traditional rap format sets in there with just Andy+Ride.

>TLDR Basically Zach plays hype-chop improvised drums, where he mirrors his chops with the lyrics to the rhythm of the vocal flow. Except Ride is sometimes just speaking, and other times downright yelling while Zach goes out on a limb with a long chop. All to the tune of industrial instrumentals and mixtape'ish backing beats.
I think this trio format would be an amazing place for hip-hop to go. Cuz really it's all about the beat and the lyrical flow.

So Meme Grips came up with the "non-commercialized" concept of releasing music.
