Pitchfork’s 25 Next Roundtable: Yaeji, Bartees Strange, Amaarae, Angel Bat Dawid, and KeiyaA on the Future of Music

On a Saturday evening in early September, Bartees Strange launches into a story about the Korean-American electronic producer Yaeji, who is seated just to his left on an oversized couch, her too-long sleeves shielding her blushing face like an invisibility cloak. “Four or five years ago, I was sending Yaeji beats like crazy,” says Bartees, who erupted onto the indie rock scene last year with his exceptional debut Live Forever. “One was titled ‘Please sing a hook on this beat, if you sing this hook it will be a huge song.’” Bartees never got a reply, so the track became Live Forever’s darkly pulsating “Flagey God.” “It was a general email, no one saw it!” protests Yaeji, nearly tumbling over from embarrassment. They laugh it off and embrace anyway. “I wrote that song for her, but I’m glad I got to keep it,” says Bartees.

Eddie On Aux: BADBADNOTGOOD, Giveon and KeiyaA

BADBADNOTGOOD — “Beside April”. Critics used terms such as “unique” and “imaginative” to describe BADBADNOTGOOD’s music, but the Canadian collective was just another example of a common phenomenon: white men in proximity to hip-hop. The trio came together at Humber College’s music school where they bonded over a shared love of alternative hip-hop and performed jazzy renditions of Odd Future songs. Supposedly, their instructors hated it. But the group persisted, got noticed by Tyler, The Creator and went viral soon after. Suddenly, they were popular enough to drop out of college and thumb their noses at the professors who probably just wanted them to make a 12-bar blues, or something.
