    that's not why it is abhorrent though. the noble savages uncorrupted by civilisation have soul whilst us western decadents don't.

    I read radical as diverse for some reason, but I'd say the same thing anyway I'm not making value judgments here, the only yardstick i use is my soul

    I'm not really sure what you're all talking about anyway. I'm assuming it's literally the genrefication and marketing of 'world music' as a thing as opposed to the music itself.

    the main reason sublime frequencies became a thing is because it was the anti-"world music": weird, raw, poorly produced music (sometimes pilfered) from ethnic groups neglected by major labels/PBS/Starbuck's.

    The irony is that Sublime frequencies' success was from building on the very reason people were drawn to "world music" in the first place. I think theyve done a great job but as you alluded plenty of ethical issues over their sourcing.
