If Shakespeare were born today, he would be a rapper. (or a blogger). Substitute his Iambic Pentameter for smiley's and he's already half the way there. Shakespeare was hip before hip was hip. Ironic in language centuries before the master of irony (I am of course referring to Snoop Dog) tricked white people into saying the N-word with a shocking frequency .. 'Nizzle' does not in fact mean 'neighbor' after all. Please forgive me the liberty of quoting the dog father for educational purposes.
I hope my intent was legit enough to avoid offending anyone.
Speaking of legit, did you know that right now, as you read this, you're inhaling many of the same atoms that Shakespeare exhaled in his last breath? Pretty unbelievable I know. The trick is that atoms are incredibly small, and each liter of air (about the amount in a single breath) contains an enormous number of them. They also don't go away, so given enough time, they scatter all over the atmosphere and eventually – right back into your lungs. Check out Encrico Fermi if you're skeptical like me and require a mathematical proof. The Law of Large Numbers FTW.
These vocals are almost too digital for me. Almost.
Lets be honest. These days – you never know if the singer can actually pull it off live, so I'm okay with losing a little honesty if I get something back in return. These grooves are solid and the melodies kick my pants in just the right way. Add these songs to the ever growing list of artists embracing how an electronic mindset can make for a more organic experience than analog ever could ← sacrilegious. I know. Get over it, or resign yourself to listening to oldies stations on your mom's AM radio.
