I’m headed back to Rotterdam a week from today — to continue the bubbling research, of course, but also, expressly, to take part in a hip-hop festival called Street Science.
Among the various performances & screenings & discussions & battles, I’ll be speaking as part of a panel on Sunday the 15th concerned with “Diversity in Styles” in the wide world of hip-hop (and, I think, global dance/club/rap music more generally, given how the lines blur). Looking forward to that — especially to getting some European/Dutch perspectives on such questions.
I’ll leave you with a brief bit of audio I once cooked-up for pm_jawn’s radio show by the same name — a little concatenation of two classic NWA samples that lets Dr. Dre make the drop drop –
