VICE: "ARTPOP predicted Hyperpop"


Recommended Posts

Quote

What some said ARTPOP had failed to do — in trying to make commendable, interesting art from the most pedestrian pop sounds — is being manifested by those creating what we now know as hyperpop. It’s a subgenre reliant on abrasive, unpredictable synth work and the exaggeration of commercial, some say facile, elements of music. 

 

(...)

 

How funny to think that it would take over half a decade from ARTPOP’s release for chaos in pop music to go somewhat mainstream. In some ways, we can thank the pioneers of hyperpop — a genre that frames pop as an abrasive, challenging force — for helping a record by the world’s biggest artist experience its second moment in the spotlight. 

 

There was once a time when Gaga told her fans that ARTPOP was made with “a tremendous lack of maturity or sense of responsibility”. On the contrary, eight years later that uninhibited, reinless approach feels emblematic of a wisdom beyond her years.

The circle jerk for this album all of a sudden is ridiculous. Where was this energy in 2013? They truly do switch like f words

Some of the Gaga stans got interships on magazines and the articles they first wrote were about ARTPOP. They've got fired soon after sadly

 

Edit: This has nothing to do with hyperpop. It's just a messy album

I could see that, but not as the starter of the trend, just as a factor in the movement..

In commercial pop, sure, it helped prop up warped and glitched production.  It’s not hyperpop tho, it’s just messy EDM with bad lyrics.  This ARTPOP renaissance is weird and undeserved for her absolute worst album.  What PC Music, Charli, Dorian, etc do is actual hyperpop.

What's with All the Fartpop stuff lately. 

 

The album lost its best single because a pedophile was on that track. 

 

Now it's getting praised??? 

 

Just checked the reviwers are liddos trying to make the album salvaged. 

 

Good job kids we did it!!!!!  ISH!!!! 

 

LMFAO

But there’s nothing hyperpop about it :psyduck: It was kind of a watered down version of Zedd and Madeon’s own EDM projects at the time to appeal to a mass audience

There's nothing hyperpop about artpop :rip: and the most prominent hyperpop acts (SOPHIE and AG Cook) started out before Artpop was even released
