drill is pretty formulaic by design though isn't it? seems to me it has always followed a pretty narrow doctrine of expression that never allowed for Pa Salieu's more singular, agnostic ambitions. don't know if it's actually become more rigid or it's just the same formula that has become less palatable.
There's something very religious about this music I think.
As I said before, in the very defined doctrines of expression. A devoutness. The videos always featuring groups of people dancing in the same staunch manner, a fervent commitment to something communal and holy. It's in the production explicitly as well. Church like choir voices, beats articulating an outwards explosion of energy, transcending the individual, assembling some higher spirit.
