SONG OF THE WEEK
Song: "1000 Whispers"
T&E writer Brandon Biallas says, "Nothing compares to the feeling I had going down YouTube rabbit-holes at 2am back in the day. Scouring the edges of the search results for weird music. All it took was one song with 42 views to change my life. After a few years of conducting these internet deep-dives, I truly struck gold the night I found '1000 Whispers' by Illogic. To this day, Illogic's music represents so much of what I love about hip hop and what it can be when we tap into unconventional sounds. It's a reminder that one of the only limits in creating anything is our imagination. I still glean things from his lyrical puzzle-boxes that make me stop in my tracks. Illogic's music strikes a crisp balance between being appealing to the ear and cerebral to the mind. The Who sample taken from 'Won't Get Fooled Again' for this song's beat doesn't hurt either. I appreciate that whenever I revisit his music, I continue to get the same feelings of discovery and wonder. It's a nice reminder to stay curious and never stop exploring what the world has to offer."
