    The 80s mourning it's lost humanity

    The 90s gleefully accelerating into post human future

    A world of difference. And when you listen to these 1991 records try to remember just how antiquated 1991 hip hop sounds. It's like listening to Dixieland or something.

    A transformation of the human soul. Gestating through the 80s. A time of goodbyes. Goodbye human world. Where we are going you won't be able to follow. Goodbye those fond little emotions, those sweetnesses and sadnesses we enjoyed, the fragility of all those things, goodbye, the human cannot follow us here

    Why this thread has struck a chord is by identifying a transition point, a letting go, in our ongoing transformation. The collective transformation of humanity into something other. That we can track through its phase shifts In music.

    Obviously true but also indicates how much Rock has lost by not having more stevies with control, who can modulate the voice and make it yield things, rock vocalists just blaring it out at one lumpen frequency, ON

    The 80s was the last time you could have a love song. The last hurrah of romance. So also, presumably, the last time it was possible to fall in love without knowing it is a programmed illusion

    I think a lot of the tracks on Fear of a Black Planet sounds very rave-y. Was the influence all US -> UK at that point, do you reckon? Or was some of it in the other direction?

    Massive religious impact on the uk. "Bass for your face London" and huge influence on the hardcore sound.

    Oh for sure. I was just wondering if any US hip-hop producers were, in turn, listening to UK hardcore in a big way ca. 1990.
