Kraddy- Android Porn (2008)

Back in 2008 I was watching one of my favorite show’s, America’s Best Dance Crew, and this dance group, Ghost Crew, came on and danced to this song. Their dancing was good, but it was the track that got me more excited. I thought it was strange at the time because most of the music on the show was mostly mainstream pop music so to see them using a lesser known electronic song gave the show and MTV more credibility as a music outlet for new and upcoming artists in genres other than pop, in my eyes.

The artist, Kraddy, is a solo electronic producer and is also a former member of the Glitch Mob, which was a group of 5 electronic musicians who collaborated to create a unique sound that would be known as the electronic music sub genre, Glitch Hop.

What sticks out for me about the song, Android Porn, is the way it changes and builds. One of my favorite songs of all time is Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger by Daft Punk and what that song does that Android Porn does, is that it gets you comfortable with a certain sound and once it does that it changes and builds so by the end of the track it can be all over the place and you’re still enjoying the song because you were gradually eased into it. If you’re a lover of electronic music you probably already know this track but if not, check it out. If you are an electronic music producer, take note of how the song uses empty space and builds sounds on top of sounds.
