Teen Daze - Together
Release Date: 2/1/2011
I know chillwave is a dead horse; people are already sick and tired of talking about the merit of the genre, and whether it will last and all that. With that being said, I know what these tracks are, and I know what label or genre they’d fall under. But when I listen to these tracks, I hear my friends: I hear Persona La Ave and Blackbird Blackbird; I hear Memoryhouse and Aidan Knight. I hear my influences: I hear J Dilla and Madlib; I hear Baths and Star Slinger. So call it chillwave, call it beat-hop, call it whatever. Just think about what, and who, you hear when you listen to it. ~ Teen Daze
Well spoken Teen Daze. Couldn’t have said it better myself. I whole heartedly agree on the annoyance of chillwave labeling, witch house, or being labeled anything for that matter. If you like how it sounds, screw categorizing the genre, just enjoy it. Its just one step away from wasting your life rating your itunes library of 17,350 songs with those damned five stars.
<3 the Memoryhouse sampling in this track.
