Hitting the big time

Long-term, long-memoried Gruts readers might recall that, four years ago, I devised a list of new music genres to challenge the likes of hip-op and dub-step. If they have been paying particularly close attention, the same readers might even recall that, since then, under my DJ name of the Grutsmeister, I have occasionally released new ambient pap tracks for their enjoyment and entertainment. These tracks are available on SoundCloud.

Last week, SoundCloud asked me to complete an online questionnaire about the music I'm publishing on their service. Here is a screen shot of one of the questions:

It looks as if ambient pap is about to go mainstream.

  1. I wasn't at the Cavern Club when the Beatles played there. But in years to come I will be telling the youngsters I was on the interwebs when Ambient Pap happened.

  2. I suspect Ambient Pap could end up bigger than the Beatles.

    One of my mum's claims to fame was that she turned down several invitations from friends to go and see a wonderful new band named 'The Beatles' at the Cavern. The reason she gave for not going was that they didn't even know how to spell beetles.
