Recommended Listening / DJ Mixtape
So far the best genre names I have ever heard are Power Violence, No Wave, and now Cloud Rap can be added to the list of silly names that definitely seem to fit the music they adhere to. Seattle’s Keyboard Kid gives us a dose of the mostly lo-fi world that has become the next movement in rap music. The names, look, and feel make me recall the cyber world of a young Angelina Jolie in Hackers. Cool looking cyber punks with laptops that project the screen image onto your face with outstanding refresh rates… only I don’t think they thought it would be so trill. I’m with it… for the most part. I just like when weird rappers really were weird and not a product of the internet. Exciting times!
