Rebirth: The Re-emergence Of Live Instruments In Popular Music – Huffington Post
With that being said, as a listener, and a creative, I feel inspired, and rejuvenated musicially. I’ve dusted off the trumpet, my guitar, and have focused more on analog sound design. Dan, and I have began to focus more on live instrumentation and our now working it into our live performance. Most of all I feel re-inspired to create. At the beginning of June we played a few of our new records at Governors Ball here in NYC. The crowd’s response to our new Funk inspired music and the Jazz sounds of FlyLo, Thundercat, Griz, Lido, and Gramatik, to name a few, got people dancing. It was awesome to see. It seems the mainstream is beginning to embrace the new change. This may be the welcome change we need in Dance music and Hip-hop. This type of creativity pushes genres forward.
