Over the weekend, Diddy’s music channel Revolt hosted its inaugural Revolt Music Conference in Miami. The Fountainbleau was jam-packed with different events hosted by Revolt and it’s sponsors. Amongst the many events, there were a series of panels with several big names in music who spoke on subjects like A&R and artist development, music publishing, and more useful topics in the industry.
During the “Congress of Music” discussion, Jermaine Dupri proctored a panel consisting of The Game, Timbaland, Rico Love, ASTR, and G-Eazy where they debated and elaborated on the trends in music and how it can progress. After the discussion kicked off, Dupri asked the panel what are the worst trends going on in music right now. Timbaland was quick to respond with “Using the same drum patterns.”
The respond prompted a juvenile “ohh” from the audience but it seemed like JD agreed with him. Could this be a warning shot at DJ Mustard for his consistent use of similar drum patterns? While the conversation eventually steered away from that subject, there were several other gems that came from the panel.
Rico Love spoke about his early days working with Jermaine Dupri and Jagged Edge under So So Def. The Game also revealed how he obtained the beat for “How We Do” from his debut album The Documentary. Singer ASTR also speaks about Electro R&B and her take on being a female in the industry.
