Ugh, stop twitching
on rap music production
music Posted 2004-02-16 12:26:37 by Jim Crawford
The Beastie Boys's Paul's Boutique has been in heavy rotation, as they say, in my personal playlist. One thing that sticks in my mind, entirely aside from its being mind-blowingly excellent, is that it came out in '89, and it sounds so... damn... current.

I have to wonder, were The Dust Brothers just so ahead of their time? Or did they shape the then-future of music? Or has rap music production just not progressed since the late 80s?

Or am I way off-base on the current sound thing? I mean, as evidenced by my having to ask this question, I'm hardly an expert on recent music history.
