Timeflies at Purdue

OK, so a few things… 1) Timeflies is an American music duo of producer Rob Resnick (Rez) and vocalist Cal Shapiro. 2) The title of this blog is a pun. It’s “punny,” kind of. 3) Today is the first time I listened to some of their songs, and they are GOOD (in my opinion.)

Meet Timeflies: Rob and Cal

Timeflies with Truslow

March 7th

Purdue University, Elliott Hall of Music

8 p.m.

So what type of music does this duo produce? They call it “Electro Hip Hop Dub-Something.” Descriptive, right? But it mostly sums it up nicely. Here’s what they do with their Electro Hip Hop Dub-Something: release new remixes, perform live covers, and freestyle over original beats. They get creative, they have fun, and they sound great. This is just my opinion, so what do you think?

Original music: 

Their original music is “music to my ears,” but their freestyles and covers are just as wonderful. Timeflies has a Youtube channel called “Timeflies Tuesday” that is dedicated to covers and freestyles.

(This song is unedited and therefore may be inapropriate for some listeners.)

Freestlye/Cover: 

I think this sums up the personality of the duo so well. You can see they have fun, they’re creative and Cal is impressive in his ability to incorporate these random words into his lyrics.

If you’re as impressed as I am, you should get your tickets soon. Really soon. I hear they’re almost gone. You can get them through Purdue Convocations or Ticketmaster.
