I Fux With...Emo-Dancehall

Serani - The Future

Autotune is the worst thing to happen to R&B in the last decade. On the other hand, it is the best thing to happen to Dancehall (well, other than the Gully god) in the last few years. Unlike in R&B, where autotune is seemingly used as a gratuitious way to hide bad singing, In dancehall, it is used by cats like Serani and Demarco to add Queen-like operatic emotional sensationalism to their singing (think good Emo)...Or maybe I'm just deluded. Either way, Serani's album is straight bananas. Enjoy.
