It's more like the difference between listening to Jimi and hearing Jimi, as Sidney Dean explains to Billy Hoyle in White Men Can't Jump. You might've listened to local band Elastic Bond before. But have you heard them?
If you have, you've no doubt relished in the smooth-as-cream vocals of one Sofy Encanto. Or delved into MC Orion's lyrical flows.
