THE LONGEST ALBUMS
Perhaps artists can be divided into two types: some release fresh releases along with a fresh calendar, others make them wait for their new products for years. 2017 has already…

PHARAOH – “REDЯUM (DULLBOY EP)”

This is a dirty, uncompromising and aggressive sound with a constantly pressing narrative, and for some reason it is precisely such compositions that succeed Gleb best.
The last year’s PHARAOH hit “Diko For example” was positively appreciated by almost everyone, so to speak, by rap historians. This is not the most popular track of a Moscow artist, but perhaps one of the most important moments in his musical career: foreign profile publications started talking about him, and the spectacular video clip even reached TheNeedleDrop, the most popular reviewer.

Kanye West & Kid Cudi

Kanye, having lost the responsibility for his words in an infantile manner, recorded, together with Kid Kadi, an album about how catharsis and liberation make us return to childhood. Having ceased to defend their freedom in the world around them, they recorded seven gospel ballads about the struggle for internal freedom, the struggle against personal demons.
At the end of April, when Kanye was tweeting and making public round-the-clock, I wrote a short note that he was a “free” person in a certain sense, mainly because he was not responsible for his words.

“Long.Live.A $ AP” after 5 years

Long.Live.A $ AP, released exactly five years ago, is an extremely rare example of how a young promising artist managed to sit on two chairs at once. Usually, guys like Rakim are faced with the following problem – the greedy fat A & R of a large label hangs over them, and he already has a clear album structure in his head that should target everyone – boys, girls, backpackers, dandies and ghetto blacks. For each segment of the audience on the album should have its own song, for the most solvent – a single for TV, radio and clubs, the intro should be ambitious, and the outro should be soulful. Naturally, with such initial conditions, the album cannot turn out to be solid and authentic in sound, and in the zero years this formula (by which 90% of the records were released) destroyed a large number of interesting artists who had to play by the rules of their owners.

No, this is not a breaststroke swimming culture or even a sect of swimmers-brassists. Brass is the most popular direction of brass music, which is performed by orchestras consisting only…
