Episode 10 - Old Vs. New

 

In episode 10 of The Soul Surplus Podcast, Wes & Smythe discuss:

Old hip hop vs new hip hop (production styles and marketing)

Define old hip hop (pre 98) vs. new hip hop (post 98)

Production styles

-----------------------------

80’s - drum machines, samples, cuts, DJ driven
90’s - MPC, ASR10, samples
00’s - Atlanta “crunk sound” becomes mainstream/cash money, more original compositions than sample based
10’s - trap

-----------------------------

How Commercialization of hip hop post 98 has changed the landscape of hip hop production
Producing in early 2000’s vs. now
Emergence of type beat production in recent years
Is production more original post 98 or pre 98? Is it better?
