Future of music

The future of music is a mystery and a problematic term itself, given the constantly changing nature of the industry. People often try to guess what the future of music will be without giving context to the term “future”, with regards to what that means in a time and place. Popular music has rapidly changed, especially in the last decade with the increasing advances and playful element of electronic music. The highest trending songs in the world now consist of electronic “drops” that transition and intertwine a melodic vocal section, build up and of course a “drop”. The New York Times has suggested that electronic music will have no place in our future popular music, which is interesting to see right now given its prevalence in our present day society.
