Old School vs New School



old school vs new school
Old School vs New School
(Jive Electro/Virgin 1999)

Dans la série 'ça commence bien et puis ça part en eau de boudin', le projet le plus mal abouti de l'année. Pourtant, il était certes ultra louable de vouloir unir les anciens, qui désormais font figure de gourous, et les jeunes qui, eux, n'ont rien retenu de ce qu'on leur a appris. Par exemple, contemplons ici l'ingéniosité qu'a dû développer Hybrid pour démolir le classique rap de Dj Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince "Summertime" : le résultat est simplement affreux ou à vomir, c'est au choix. Mais, comme je le disais plus avant, ce n'est qu'un exemple parmi 16 autres. On trouve du Stone Roses (?) remixé par Kelly Reverb, Rabbit In The Moon ou encore Grooverider (ce dernier est d'ailleurs le seul qui s'en sorte!). S'ensuivent cinq remixes de A Tribe Called Quest par des jeunes (ça s'entend, sauf pour Norman Cook) et trois remixes de Whodini gaché à mort. Bref, vraiment pas utile et même offensant pour ceux qui ont vécu la Old School. La nouvelle école se veut, apparemment mauvaise house presque dance : tant pis pour nous!
Note je prends du rap j'en fais de la dance parce que je suis jeune: **** (Tiff)
