Alexis 'Tinker' Taylor of Hot Chip does not agree with a recent scientific paper which claims pop music is becoming blander.
In an interview with NME, the 'Playboy' hitmaker notes that "there's always exciting records being made" before adding: "I don’t know whether much of that is in the mainstream at the moment."
Clearly Alexis Taylor has not heard the new Tulisa single.
In the interview he goes on to say that he believes the days of exciting R&B and hip-hop are over."Things like Rodney Jerkins productions and Timbaland productions, and everything related to Destiny's Child and Whitney Houston — they were exciting and pushing things forward," he opined, before adding: "Right now, I don’t hear much of those things. I hear more trance‑y hip-hop, David Guetta-style productions."
Another recent report claimed that pop music is becoming more depressing. Whatever next? Gotye in 'boring' shocker?
