    luka keeps pestering me to respond. not much to say. that mixtape's the perfect example of the transition.

    i think we're all in agreement. it went from being dominated by that midi-orchstra sound (luka called it 'fanfare') to something less derivative, more ambient.

    from horns, strings, bells, choir, conventional synth bleeps





    to

    doesn't account for young thug though, he doesn't do much of this.

    whats the best migos thing to listen to?
    cultureís not very consistent but it's where they reach their psychedelic peek:

    reynoldís favourite:



    hold on se22 mix:








    yrn 2 isnít as innovative, but itís probably the best lp overall. crowley says itís the best thing theyíve done.



    this is their peek in terms of conventional rapping:




    donít think youíll like it, but i think no label 2 is them absorbing 1017 thug a little bit:







    some good instrumentals on it:



    get right witcha is amazing.
    Yeah, I think it was listening to that one that made think that they were descended from heaven. All those cherub flutes. Otherworldly.

    whos the one with the last verse on get right witcha? hes shit


    assess the gucci verse in this migos context. prefer it? sounds old?
    i fucking love this one

    why are you working? put it off till tomorrow
    takeoff, the most traditional rapper out of migos.

    gucci verse is dire. not really a fan of him in general though. iíd say itís ignoring migosí innovations. theyíre staccato, they rap in single lego blocks, theyíre todd edwards samples, whereas gucciís verse sounds like slime down tiles; a singular, viscous substance flowing as one.
    takeoff. shittest name. i could have worked it out if id thought about it. obvious innit
    todd edwards samples excatly.
    migos are the apathetic version of this

    do you like this?

    i really like it even yachty
    i like it, donít love it. itís not transcendental and psychedelic like my favourite stuff by them, just a bit of fun. ad lib calling joe budden a pussy always makes me laugh, like playground humour.

    i made the mistake of trying to find redeeming qualities of yachty, sort of though he was like millenial hauntology and thought that might be interesting. actually only ended up liking the stuff where he wasn;ít doing that sort of thing:

    Migos kinda reminded me of the black vocal group tradition that started with doo-wop and crossed over into soul. Quarterts and trios - lotso Lots of emphasis on vocal pyrotechnics rather than lyrics as such. I suppose Bone Thug are part of this lineage to.

    My fave by then:

    So the crystalization in the early part of the 2010s occurs as a result of DJ Spinz. Spinz & DJ Pretty Boy Tank were brought in under DJ Scream into the Hoodrich Entertainment brand (Scream was an affiliate DJ in the Gangsta Grillz along w/ DJ Holiday).
    Pretty Boy Tank just did a really good mix of new Atlanta stuff for Westwood :
