There’s a bunch of great stuff happening in the music world right now that combines electronic music and old-school hip-hop.  This trend (a la Flume) is exemplified exquisitely on a newly released track called “Humphrey,” a collaboration between EDM king A-Trak and Harlem rapper Cam’ron.  The song overlays a soulful, upbeat sample, and trots along a dreamy sound cloud for almost three minutes.  It’s this sort of playful, stuttering, avant-garde electronic music that really excites me, what with all of the fist-pumping dubstep dominating the scene (not that this is a bad thing!).  But it’s nice to hear innovation and simultaneous respect for older sounds.  I also have to give a shout-out to that low-key 90’s bling album art!  Cheers and enjoy BU’ers.

  2. This is the right webpage for everyone who wishes to find
    out about this topic. You understand a whole lot its
    almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want
    to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on
    a subject which has been discussed for years.
