The Autotune is the most unnerving phenomenon of the year. While it has its place in the art of making music, its like a prescription drug that gets in the hands of an addict. Oh, and Hip-Hop and R&B are crack heads to Auto tune.
Stevie Wonder and Roger Troutman get credit for being early adopters of the Autotune sound, but they actually used the device called the Talk Box. This is a musical enhancer with a tube that you shoved down your mouth. Stevie and Roger made it seem effortless, but most others looked like they were patients in the ICU trying to sing…
And then there is Talk Box Kid. Oh, yes…he’s a phenom in his own mind and on youtube. A rebel that sings without a pause.
All you Autotune herbs, bacdacfucup – TALK BOX KID IS HERE!
“Buy You A Drank”
“California Love” (R.I.P. Roger!)
Will he eventually be Talk Box Man? We hope so, you thankless posers.
