2024 Music So Far: Featuring Vintage Culture

POST HUMAN: NeX GEn by Bring Me the Horizon

Model by Wallows

Lemon Cars by Coi Leray

Explicit Language

Promised Land by Vintage Culture

Vintage Culture is the project of DJ Lukas Ruiz Hespanhol.  It's the second album he's put out and I found this to be a solid listen.  The only real problem with this album is that it is too long at 16 tracks.  Really should have been a 10 to 12 track album and it would have felt much tighter.  No real bad tracks, but when you get to 16 tracks it is hard not to hit some lulls, especially on a DJ based albums that is really just a collection of songs.

That being said there is a vibe that carries through the entire album, so it does feel connected in that sense, but still at some point it starts to feel a bit long.  There isn't anything really original in the sound here and in fact he's borrowing heavily at times from The Weeknd.  

I would say each year I listen to maybe 4 or 5 of these DJ based albums and for the most part I find them to be fairly consistent.  All I'm looking for is a good collection of songs that have a good beat and can be used as part of a dance party, or workout mix, and this album succeeds at that.  

It's also nice in that there isn't explicit language on this album, so you can throw it on in the background and not worry about the language.  This of course means you can play it when you are cleaning the house, and it works for that purpose.  Not one my wife would go for, but if it's just me and the kids it could be a good one.
