Re: Maybe why Avante-garde looping in US...

Hello all,

New to the list, but I've been looping for a long time now.................

'sophistication & hip hop are not cohesive...redundant & childish fit the

^^^You can't be serious. Being that loopers are IMO generally at the
forefront of emerging music & technology, I am surprised to see someone
here say something like that. Redundant & Childish? There certainly is
terrible hip-hop out there (and terrible rock.....and terrible
blues.......and terrible Country....etc etc), but there is LOADS & loads of
mindblowing hip hop as well. As a matter of fact, I'd say hip-hop currently
features the greatest lyric writers of the modern music era- this
generations Bob Dylan will be an MC, fo sure. Bad music does not respect
the boundaries of genre- to lump all hip hop together is like lumping Sum
41 into the same breath as The Beatles.

 I'd like to see the study re-done to include white and black
 teenagers who listen to hiphop. Like or loathe it, hiphop's vocal
 rhythms are often very sophisticated and its popularity is very high
 throughout the youth culture.

 PS: I'm Canadian. ;-)
