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.

…Scratches the heck out of “Pump Me Up” by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. Hosted by DJ Kidd Disco. Enjoy!

TOO fresh.

CLASSIC.
