I mean…what else were we expecting from Diplo and an artists called ‘Lazerdisk Party Sex’ than strippers in space?
The 90′s are back, yay! I’ve been anxious to hear the new No Doubt tunes since they’re produced by a favorite producer (and lover) of mine, Diplo. It’s great to hear new No Doubt music, especially after Gwen went off and did her solo Harajuku Girls thing, that sounds almost like they did back in the day. What’s interesting about the track is that it’s ska music, meaning there’s usually incorporation of a horn section/parts, however, they’ve been swapped out for electronic “horn” emphasis. “Settle Down” doubles as a pop song too, in a No Doubt/commercial radio play manner, but has a run time of 6:14. Of course there’s a radio edit of the track, but for a pop song, that’s a long time to keep a lot of ears engaged. Not like it’s a big deal for No Doubt, they’ve been in the music game for a minute and are keeping up with making the right moves (i.e. Diplo’s production). And not that it relates to the music in any way, but Gwen Stefani looks damn good at 42.
Before we get started, it is important to note that this song was created to sell things, not to be a fun song that everyone listens to. SSENCE, a clothing brand, collaborated with FKi, Iggy Azalea and Dilpo to create a song to go along with the first ever interactive shopping music video. As a huge fan of social media and all of the new ways to sell things through interactive ways, I am extremely excited about this idea so I would have watched this video regardless of the song underneath it. SSENSE paired up with wireWAX, and used their cool, new technology to make it possible for the viewer to click on an article of clothing and be taken to the online store and buy it. It is a fun thing to play with if you want to waste some time, or look at pretty clothes that I will never be able to wear because of my desire to go into the music industry where I will make little to no money (but at least I will be doing what I love…! Right guys? Right?)
But anyway, back to the track.
Azealia Banks has been on my radar since December when I first heard her song “Liqourice” and ever since then I have not been disappointed with her releases. She has an 80s hip-hop feel, but with 10s rebellion which shows through her lyrics. Her latest release “Fuck Up The Fun” which was produced by Diplo showcases Azealia’s quick flow over top a bunch of tribal drums. A clash between good ol’ hip-hop and shiny, new electronica, “Fuck Up the Fun” is something you’ll be bobbing your head along with for plays on plays on plays.
Ready to express yourself with this music video? They are.
