“If you could only choose one musical genre or artist for a day, what would it be?”
This is another tricky question as a lot of the music I listen to isn’t by artists per se, but rather a DJ that blends lots of different music and sounds together. So listening to some of my favourite ‘artists’ right now (The Funk Hunters, Krafty Kuts, DJ Vadim) would actually mean listening to lots of different artists which would break the singular choice.
So I looked at this question in another way: which artist is not only genre defining but unique in their own genre(s) to which they belong?
Fat Freddy’s Drop is a reggae/dub group from Wellington who I rate as one of my all time favourite artists, as well as unique in that there’s no other band I’d really put into the same genre. Since each FFD track is about 10 minutes long and they have plenty of albums and live sessions available: I’d happily listen to Fat Freddy’s Drop for an entire day.
Next question for K:
“In what areas are you happy to be ‘good enough’?”
