Shop Sounds (June 2018)

Four Horsemen Shop Sounds returns for a new instalment in our series of mixes compromised from staff favourites. Our newest playlist focuses on one particular genre and timeframe. In this instalment, we focus on post-2010 experimental rap/hip-hop. This genre is incredibly musically diverse; it has seen plenty of new and compelling artists push the sound forward during the past eight years. Young Thug's off the wall flows and vocal performances have certified him as one of the genre's most unique artists, whose influence on the latest generation of rappers is clear. Noise-rap trio Death Grips, and newcomer JPEGMAFIA, have incorporated glitchy and frantic beats, paired with surreal lyricism. All of the featured artists have contributed to pushing the genre into new territory by redefining their sound, creating their own aesthetic and rebelling against genre norms.
