Past and Present

Past and present-Juicy J

Past and Present is Tavik’s way of paying homage to the musicians that may have been forgotten, but continue to inspire us today. In each installment we take music from earlier generations and compare it to the songs they influence today.

Hip hop has seen an array of sub genres, one of the most notable being trap. Born in the south, trap can be characterized by its lyrical content, instrumentation, and the iconic rolling hi-hat, only recently finding more commercial success. Listen to Three 6 Mafia’s “Ridin In Da Chevy” (1995), as well trap inspired pop in Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” (2014) with Three 6 Mafia member Juicy J.

Canadian resident Vernor Winfield McBriare Smith IV, better known by his stage name Mac Demarco, has been self recording music for years, finding more commercial success in 2012 when he signed to Captured Tracks. You always know when you hear a Mac Demarco song, and his live performances are just as unique and entertaining. Listen to “European Vegas” off of his 2012 album Rock and Roll Nightclub, and catch him at FYF this Sunday.

Past and Present - The Natural Yogurt Band

Past and Present is Tavik’s way of paying homage to the musicians that may have been forgotten, but continue to inspire us today. In each installment we take music from earlier generations and compare it to the songs they influence today.

The Natural Yogurt Band are commonly referred to as a jazz duo, however simultaneously feature strong elements of funk, soul, and psychedelia. Many groups merely repeat what has been created in the past, but this UK duo has successfully given new life to genres that thrived in previous decades. Listen to their track “Pipe Dreams” off of the 2008 album Away With Melancholy, as well as Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up” off of the 1970 album Curtis!.

Thursday Afternoon is TAVIK’s song choice to help get your weekend started early and “beat” the crowds…

Ariel Pink is one of the most underrated contemporary artists, and has only recently found more commercial success. His discography features a slew of self-recorded albums, ridden with tape hiss and screeching instrumentation, arguably more valued than his two later studio albums. This Thursday afternoon, listen to “She’s My Girl” off of his 2002 album, Lover Boy.
