After a week off, we’re back with an in-depth episode about hip-hop production. With people like Lil Yachty making songs that sound like M83 and Lil Uzi Vert rapping over beatless ambient tracks, it’s hard to talk about the evolution of electronic music without talking about the evolution of rap. Our associate editor Ezra Marcus hosts a discussion between freelance journalist Drew Millard, Noisey Staff Writer Lawrence Burney, and Vice.com Social Editor Trey Smith about young rappers’ tastes for strange sounds. Elsewhere, we discuss the experimenters working on the fringes to bridge club music and rap, the handful of producers ruling pop rap, and flutes. It’s 2017, so of course we’re talking about flutes.​
