MUSIC 115 Cuyamaca College Hip Hop Music Black Rural Feminist Trap Discussion

Need help with my Film question – I’m studying for my class.


Our course concludes in the 1990s, so I’d like our final discussion board to highlight musical innovators from the current millennium. Please write about an artist/group you think has been truly innovative in the past 15 years or so. Just because an artist/group is popular doesn’t necessarily mean they have been innovative. Think about more recent genres and who created that musical style or technique. An easy example could be the newer genre called Dub Step and the artist Skrillex. It was a new sound and technique that developed peripherally (regional, small marketplace) by a particular artist/group, it crossed over to the center or mainstream marketplace, and was then copied by many other artists. Every musician imitates and borrows from earlier artists, true innovators move the sound forward and create new styles and genres that are typically imitated by those that follow. Our entire course has focused on innovators, can you think of some from the past couple decades?

Who/what were their musical influences? How did they innovate musically? Have any other artists/groups copied their new style or techniques?
