Nick Brodeur – Party All Night feat DMC

Some people just can’t be persuaded to do what they do not want. Some people can’t be simply motivated by money, by fame, or by the promise of fanatical admiration. Those sorts of people are extremely rare in the world of modern music. In fact, the vast majority of them are the kinds of folks who rely on the positive feedback of the audience in the same way that a plant relies upon water and sunlight. 

DMC can’t be bothered to rhyme for money. His famous, former rap group tried to persuade him to do this, and he refused. In fact, he doesn’t even think of himself as a rapper nowadays. He wants to be a comic book action hero and a rock music composer. And while these things aren’t immediately obvious to a new listener, they inform how this song is performed. 

Nick Brodeur’s “Party All Night” is a big rap-metal song. The sound is meant to bring to mind the arena-conquering nu-metal bands of the 2000s that are currently enjoying a very hard-to-predict renaissance. But it’s DMC’s contribution that helps turn this into something grandiose and an interesting oddity for those interested in the close-grained history of rap and rock.


Denacus – dRIP

There are two types of audiences that absolutely love new(ish) styles of music like trap and the production used by them – people who get it and people who are unequipped to get it, young kids and grizzly grown ups who have had it with nostalgia. 

Ironically, it’s the old guard that really likes to champion these kinds of songs. They’ll talk your ear off about how innovative trap records are, how they heard about Death Grips from some cutting-edge YouTube channels that provinces music reviews, or how Billie Eilish is the Kurt Cobain of her generation. 

Of course, these people don’t actually listen to this kind of music, just like folks who earn a living playing in thrash bands don’t actually listen to metal anymore. And, of course, they don’t listen to it because they have nothing in common with it. That’s too bad because, occasionally, it can surprise you. 

Denacus’s “dRIP” can’t be confused with any single genre other than horrorcore. But before you start comparing this to Ghostmane or to horror hip-hop luminaries like Getto Boys, you should mention that this manages to make itself distinguishable from the pack. How? Through anger reflected in a clever, ene musical way. The flow is good; the rhymes hit their mark better than 99% of songs that use this kind of beat, and, at times, this almost sounds scary.
