This is the first Whodini track so far on the blog. Don’t judge!

I had always heard much but never really took the time to listen. It’s almost as though I was keeping their music as a treat to start listening to “one day”. I knew it would be good, and that it wasn’t going anywhere. I guess that’s why they call it the golden age.

And the musicality of this one is really off the hook imo. There were so many (pop-influenced) tropes from the hip-hop production styles of the 80s. In some ways I feel that Hip-hop had to navigate its way around these for a while before getting back to its roots. The new beat boxes, the synthesizers, the spot-on drum programming. But this is really something different. There’s a lot of soul here. This, is something special. Do enjoy.
