A sonic scrutiny into notions of rawness in popular music, ranging from the motif-defining hip hop skit, over self-referential pop-songwriting, to the ubiquity of voice and sound snippets flooding streaming culture and social media. How do song-production and story-telling establish intimacy? And how have these elements developed throughout younger music history? This episode examines the aesthetic and textural strategies that make songs appear relatable, genuine, close, real, authentic; raw.

Nikolas Brummer (*1996) is an artist and curator living in Berlin. His practice examines the cultural and political dimensions of emotion, focusing on younger music history and pop culture. He is the co-founder of PlusX, a project space dedicated to performance, text and sound
