If you want to access the national market you have to embarrass yourself.
They did a bit on Masterchef just now where the Jamaican guy rapped, It was excruciating. Greg and Monica were waving their hands in the air. I felt nauseous and fearful, and turned away.

It's going to be the greatest triumph of the algorithm once you end up loving them

i was listening in the context of best rapper in the uk, but you're right the 808 sounds good
 
808 kicks typically signify depth, weight, menace etc but here he takes all that then maximises agility, playfulness, melody

Yeah it's the same but totally different. It's one of those tunes which is a genre all by itself. A direction which could have been taken but wasn't
 
the glide warps time and space. because of the expectation of downward pitch the glide gives a sense of reversal and a 3d enveloping anti gravity physicality. in the way that trap focused on stuttering time dividing hats and jungle tmestretch doing the same

Well I have to admit actually I don't know what that word means exactly can you explain it please?
 
when the kick boom glides up and down to make a melody. Pitch bends. Switching from one note played alongside next with legato so you get a nice gliding curve
 
In trap I think. Corpsey and barty will know. You could obviously trace pitching 808s all through hip hop and electro but it got much more cartoon bendy baroque in the last few years
