Well, hey there! Sorry it’s been so long. Looks like we’ve all got our own extracurricular activities keeping us busy. Jay is building hisself a goddamn sweet art car for Burning Man, and I’m attempting to raise a halfway decent human being. It’s not that we don’t have music we want to share, it’s just that we haven’t had the time to share it. If it makes you feel any better, we’re feeling a bit guilty for the severe level of neglect.
And now I’m only hopping on for self promotion! That’s right, I’m dusting off the ol’ DJing rig, and heading out to play a benefit called 404 Beats in San Francisco later this month. The organization behind the event is BAVC (Bay Area Video Coalition). They provide creative media education for low-income bay area youth, including digital audio; something any reader of this blog can get behind. If you’re in the San Francisco area, please consider coming out to support this event. The full info is below, and if the cause doesn’t convince you, maybe the fact that it’s probably one of the only opportunities this year you’ll get to hear me play will.
Okay, I can’t do you like that. I can’t just post for the first time in months without providing you loyalists with some new music. So, here’s a sampling of some Electro Blues tracks I’ve been into recently. It seems to me that the sub-genre is on the rise thanks in part to the popularity of Electro Swing, especially in the wake of C2C’s massive Electro Blues club hit “Down the Road”. Like Electro Swing, it combines sounds of the early 20th century with modern elements… elements such as dope beats and fat bass. Here are a few of my favorites, ranging from downtempo to hard-hitting electro. If you like these tracks, know that I’ll probably play a couple at the 404 Beats party, which (in case I didn’t already hammer home the point) you should totally attend. Enjoy!
Son of Dave - Devil Take My Soul
Swing Republic - Cryin’ at Daybreak
K-Thoery - Good & Gone
