Hip hop is usually not my thing. Or was not my thing. Lately, and particularly in festivals normally dedicated to rock / pop rock & co, I found that I was increasingly enjoying hip hop concerts. It probably has a direct link with my growing distaste for interchangeable and disposable pop / pop-rock / electro-pop whatever bands, who end up sounding the same and, above all, extremely conventional.
In this framework, Swet Shop Boys gave a particularly enjoyable gig at Primavera Sound. With great energy on stage and amazing skills to interact with an audience, the duo delivered an impacting shout out against racism and prejudices, coated in satire and irreverent humour. It would have been a shame to miss this!
