I am more confused than ever about genre preference now that taking B2B has got me understanding a little bit about music and noticing bass lines. Falling in love with music of many genres.
If someone else is DJ, I am very open to any genre, and over the years always loved rock n roll and then new wave, but the past 10 years, I kind of get bored with music that lacks soul or a clear African influence (so love R&B, jazz, Afrobeat, reggae).
In recent years I played Orchestra Baobab, Salif Keita, Budos Band in the car over and over. In the late 70s 80s, Talking Heads was my favorite band, and I continued to love them even more with all the African-derived rhythms. Loved those David Byrne compilations (Brazilian etc). I was obsessed with D’Angelo for a while and was very confused as to why he wasn’t THE biggest thing and didn’t win all awards and play everywhere all the time. Is he underappreciated?
