Can we stop with the covers already?

Whilst going through the latest releases earlier – I want to do a mix and was looking for some new records – I couldn’t help but notice the large number of covers doing the rounds at the moment.

Most of them aren’t even that great. The ones I’ve heard either stick too close to the original and fall way short, or they overdo it and the results are simply awful.

Make new stuff, please. We all know the 80s and 90s had great tunes. But when it’s 2050, people are going to be looking at tunes from the 2020s, and I fear this era is coming to come up really short at this rate.

New stuff!
