Past, Present & Future (PP&F) will serve as an “algorhythm” in which music selection will adhere to- taste making in not just music, but in other emerging trends as well. This new way of thinking will help the community connect the dots in which I will attempt to to drag and utilize other niches, communities and scenes into ours. Fads and trends, although superficial and usually short lasting, are what industries and business models are based on. Trends and fads are flimsy at best when observed at face value, but one must discover their perpetual nature and “bigger picture.” Clothing retailers such as Urban Outfitters, American Apparel and H&M have certainly done this and that is why they continue to dominate the clothing retail market (along with price positioning and clever marketing campaigns). Industries, including but not limited to music and fashion, are moving quicker than ever. The internet and advances in technology such as handheld devices (Apple’s iPhone and Google’s G1) have made data more accessible and viral than ever. Incredibly efficient and effect media management has made the search for new sounds and music more daunting, treacherous and overwhelming than ever.
By definition an algorithm is a step-by-step problem solving procedure, especially an established, recursive computational procedure for solving a problem in a finite number of steps. This series will use this schematic and thought process to algorithmically demonstrate what you should and could be listening to. Even more importantly, turn one on to new things and build on your particular tastes. Genres and tags are incoherently rigid nowadays and people are scrambling to find and are ravaging through thesauruses to find the next new “tag/genre du jour.” I got you. Let me blur the lines and dissolve away any biases one may or may not have. Sit back, relax and let the sights and sounds pour in! Always remember that good music is good music.
Past: The artist, trend, cut, concept or label that influences, or has influenced, today’s market
Present: Right now- maybe it’s right in front of your eyes, or below your feet (alluding to the “underground”) but you happen to be missing it
Future: Something to certainly keep an eye out for
“Present” and “Future” should not be confused with release dates. Future simply implies that it can be your future is you choose so. Sometimes, a particular track, trend or idea takes some time to become relevant.
