22nd Century Pop

My fave music is stuff that pushes pop into the future, like Gnarls Barkley, Chemical Bros., Timbaland ... and now I'm adding Shinjuku Zulu (and K.I.A., his other band name,) to that list. Brilliant and fun, especially Make Me Shake, Dirty Liar and Shanghai Masai. (But also haunting and beautiful, like on songs like Rainbowbeau and Coal Coal Black.)

heard the track "Shanghai Masai" cuz it was a semi-finalist in the UK Songwriting Competition. best songs: the grime-pop-rap-tronica "Make Me Shake", the electro-cheerleader-dancehall "Da Riddim Griffin", and on the downtempo tip, the chill-traditional "Scarborough Fair" and the 1920s-dub "Coal Coal Black". this CD has like 12 rappers & singers, 19 songs. and about a 1000s styles. mashup for the masses, and massive.


Shuffle, bubble, jack, boogaloo and krump! (SHANGHAI MASAI). Disco in San Francisco, Do Le Rock in Bangkok! (DA RIDDIM GRIFFIN). Make me shiver, make me shake, go bangin'! (MAKE ME SHAKE). Here come the future, hot like da sun, Here come the future, cool like silicon! (WE DO SUPERSONIC). The lyrics say it all. Great, great CD.
