Let me introduce you to the antithesis of party music.
Far from the ass jiggling and getting drunk in the club, theres this sub genre rap full with positive influence. Conscious Rap is a branch of hip hop which focus on spreading the message and gives knowledge to the listener. Common theme conscious rap songs usually are empowering message to live day by day, critics to society, fighting discrimination or anti-violence.
Im not really well versed in hip hop but heres a few tracks i recommend to know more about conscious rap. I included RapGenius links below each tracks so you can read the songs description & message behind it more clearly.
No, not vinyl, just CDs. I want to jump in to that hype train though, but the 300-500k IDR for each vinyl plates price range stops me right there. Most of the CDs in my shelf are local Indonesian music. If you look a bit further than whats playing on TV and radio, Indonesian music scene is blooming with quality music these days. Find out the release from label such as Demajors, FFWDand Grimlocto listen the examples of what im talking about.
Rather than just sitting there, i thought it will be good to write about some of the Indonesian CD’s which i recommend. So heres the first episode of Indonesian Sounds. In this virgin post, loud and distortion heavy rock albums will be featured
If you have, then one thing on your mind after you went out the theater was probably to look and download this movie soundtrack. It was that good of the soundtrack. The movie itself is all you can crave for a Marvel’s adaptation. Character was very likeable, its hilarious and the plot was solid. But the one which makes the movie memorable is the soundtrack which was full of 70’s classic rock songs, The Awesome Mix. Director James Gunn use this to point out to the audience that Starlord is really human from the Planet Earth.
After discussing this movie with my colleague, I cant help but listing other movies which have awesome soundtracks. Below are my personal picks.
Sounds from the corneris a video collective of quality performance from Indonesian artist. When i say quality, These guys got really serious about it. High quality video editing, crisp sounds and amazing performance. Heres my fave sessions with Tulus.
Monday morning, the quintessential time for having the laziness taking over you.
So i guess ill just do short post and share one of things i enjoy. I listened to dance music podcast a lot. Im having is as background sound while i do other thing such as writing, reading stuff on the internet or playing games. Below are top 3 that i would recommend with everyone who has the same affinity for four to the floor beats.
The name is Die Antwoord, an afrikaans word for “The Answer”. The group of 3 which are DJ Hell the beatmaker, Ninja a rapper who cannot seems to take his shirt on for most of the music videos and the dame, a freaky but confusingly hot Yolandi Visser. Their music is described as South African rap rave, yeah mate it is that strange. They sounds like rap with EDM beats. Check out my personal pick below Baby’s On Fire
