and look back to the release of future sex love sounds. its built on minimal techno and electro flourishes.
But his stuff dates kinda quick-like.
The Bachelor and Supa Dupa Fly are still two of the best albums of their genres respectively, largely due to the production work by Timbo. His poorer more recent stuff was never going to be timeless but his best work will be revered for a long time yet (see just about everything he did with Aaliyah too to prove the point).
And I wouldnt group Supa Dupa Fly as a classic by any means.
Other than the Aaliyah ones.
Regardless of your opinion on it, it's pretty much the most important album ever released by a female rapper. It's not something I listen to on a regular basis but I can still appreciate the importance of its release and impact on subsequent hip-hop and R&B.
I just cant/dont listen to it anymore.
As far as importance goes, I would consider these artists all 'more important' (whatever that means anyway)
i've no time for his new stuff, but Aaliyah, Indian Flute, Missy. There's no arguing with that.
were supposedly drum'n'bass beats with some hits removed to make it seem more like a half-step. There was a big furore in drum'n'bass at the time but when asked about it in an interview Timbaland said it wasn't a big influence (although he's not known as one of the most honest men in music). In any case drum'n'bass should take it as a big compliment.
