Music for me was always more about the sound, melody or overall flow on the background. The lyrics of some of the songs, I used to change a little bit in my own understanding of the mind. And as I see the music industry nowadays going through all the different phases, at least in the area of my interest of hip hop and rap of the early 90’s and then through UK garage, break beat and many varieties of house music or techno.
The first sound and melody of any song can tell a lot about the full track of particular piece of music. An artist is always connected to the art work, that was created in very specific mood, same as the overall view on production could be summarize as done it from the heart or created to make another bubble of dollars, or to fire up specific emotional cocktail of potential clients.
From my perspective as an artist, the music created from the heart will stand the test of time. I’m not sure what kind of music do you like, or what kind of melody makes you moving and dancing without thinking about it… but when I see and feel the music which was created in the analogue era, way before that digital bubble and synthetic desire of power of the mind, control or motivation.
Everything seemed to be simpler, a much simpler, connected, available, speakable and touch full. Digital era created more dynamic and progressive impact on the world around, especially in social media, which creates specific way of illusion of being connected to others, while creating deeper disconnection from the normal human way of communication. Maybe… I’m over sensitive and emotional as well, but whatever is happening in the world of digital era needs to be counter balance.
The music from the 90’s or 00’s, at least from my perspective was created with the reason of ‘to have fun’ and ‘create the movement’ and ‘connection’ from heart to heart perspective. Not all music as I can guess, but most of the track that I used to play myself or collect from different sources and type of storage, incl. cassettes and vinyls (LP’s, EP’s and white labels). Music those days was created for the people as same as today, but in more human way of connection at first place… so,
What’s the difference between the real music and a bubble one ? maybe there isn’t…
