I was talking to my roommate about the death of hip-hop and then I thought to myself, imagine how people who grew during the golden age of Rock & Roll must feel about rock now? But that’s as far as the questioning went, I’ve never been one to care much for this type of conversation, all good things must come to an end to make room for the next good thing, and since there are endless possibilities it’s not worth much trying to hold on. I think it’s more important to create something new using inspiration from the past but just trying to hold on to the past alone can really limit your ability to experience new and exciting things which in the end might actually end up better then what your desperately trying to maintain.
Mark Ronson is one of those quality producers who understands this concept. Constantly blending all sorts of genres, styles and era’s, he creates music that keeps things moving forward while acknoleding the greatestness that’s come before him. I could talk for days about this but as usual Fridays non-stop and I’m finishing this as I walk into my next meeting, enjoy.
