Cloud rap aka trillwave / based music

Overview


The production of cloud rap music has been described as “hazy”, often including “ethereal vocal samples” and the “aesthetics of bedroom electronic producers”. In a 2010 article, Walker Chambliss presumed that the term was invented by music writer Noz while interviewing rapper Lil B, but the interview in question did not actually include the phrase. Cloud rap artists have been noted to employ “chant-like” vocal samples, as to create a “surreal” effect. According to Nico Amarca of Highsnobiety, the genre was initially defined by the use of “nonsensical catchphrases and Twitter baits”, as to parody and embrace internet culture, from which it was created. Amarca also believed Yung Lean to have changed cloud rap through his “melancholic, dreamy rapping”. According to FACT, the genre describes “pretty much any lo-fi, hazy rap that makes its way to the net” (read more: wiki)

30af66c2acae24a5433bdf81ce8248aaTHE CITY DARK is a feature documentary about the loss of night. After moving to NYC from rural Maine, filmmaker Ian Cheney asks a simple question – do we need the stars? – taking him from Brooklyn to Mauna Kea, Paris, and beyond. Exploring the threat of killer asteroids in Hawaii, tracking hatching turtles along the Florida coast, and rescuing injured birds on Chicago streets, Cheney unravels the myriad implications of a globe glittering with lights – including increased breast cancer rates from exposure to light at night, and a generation of kids without a glimpse of the universe above. Featuring stunning astrophotography and a cast of eclectic scientists, THE CITY DARK is the definitive story of light pollution and the disappearing stars. (imdb)
