    Ahead of the curve

    Next time a new music trend pops up in the United States, look into the history of it. There's a good chance it was happening two years ago in Europe, and there's a good chance that Europeans are already over it. Right at this point of oversaturation in Europe, Americans catch on and decide to run with it. Not only that, but they figure out a way to do it without tact or style. America takes things like dubstep and turns it into terrible, cheap, gimmicky noise. In the past decade or so, Europe has proved itself to be one step ahead of the United States in electronic, pop, and rock music, and we wouldn't be surprised to see the next big trends in hip-hop to start being traced back to Europe more often in the coming years.
