I recently alluded to how annoying it is that so many R&B and Hip Hop artists are laying claim to their undying love of Euro Pop in an attempt to appear avant garde and relevant. In truth, we all know that when everyone's on the same bandwagon, it cannot be unique any longer. Those in disagreement cited the fact that it's these artists' right to want to be "different." Fine. Be different, but there's no need to shout it from the rooftops. As an artist, there are ways to cite your influences without forcing it down everyone's throats (Kanye, I'm looking at you). It's for this reason that I am rather liking "Vision One" by Norwegian Electro Pop duo Röyksopp. It gives a hat-tip to Stevie Wonder by building then deconstructing the beat from "Too High" while maintaining a Pop sensibility. At it's worst, it's a jaunt down synthesizer lane. At it's best, it's like one of those songs you hear on a great mix that bridges two songs you absolutely adore. Feel free to agree or disagree once you press play.
