The motherflippin' Get Down

First, I must apologise for my relative silence over the summer period. Any excuse would seem disingenuous, so I’ll keep the explaining to a minimum. In an odd kind of way, summer can be a pretty dead time in terms of music. 629 weitere Wörter

The Get Down - Not off on the good foot

Baz Luhrmann, the Australian director/writer/producer, more commonly known for his epic swathes of glitz and colour, camp extravaganzas and flamboyant, ambitious panoramas in such over-blown and lavishly styled productions as Moulin Rouge, The Great Gatsby, Strictly Ballroom and Australia, takes the helm for the pilot episode of a new 12 part Netflix series, The Get Down, chronicling the birth and rise and rise of Hip Hop from its earliest beginnings in the broke and broken, battle-scarred and crime-ridden New York City of the early 1970s and beyond, to its pre-eminence as a dominant force – a billion dollar art form – in the musical landscape some 40 years on. 2.051 weitere Wörter
