These boys are the proper DJ pros. The guys who choose to make to difficult for themselves. The guys who eat drink and sleep vinyl and Technics 1210s. The men who can cut a record quicker and neater than Christiano Ronaldo can step over a football. The boys who make the good old turntable into a rather special musical instrument..
So, what is it? Well take 1 part Miss Dynamite, 1 part low jazz rumble, I part Gravediggaz and a whole bunch of randomness and you're getting close.
The tunes are simple and rather predictable. It's the 3 boys in the band routine. It's rather straight ahead light indie, rock, pop...
<i>This Was Supposed To Be The Future</i> rolls along. It has the peace and quiet of the country and the ethnic culture clash of a city. It's a quality, smooth, soulful pop record that dives in, out and around a whole host of genres with the same kind of ease and comfort as do Groove Armada...
....and other tragedies reminds me a little of the Boo Radleys earlier and quieter moments. It's quite inofensive, the ex-wife might like it, it's OK and that's about as much as I can say... <br/>
We're talking heavy guitars and hints of Faithless like dance hugeness. There's a worked epic sound - it has promise.. <br/> <br/> But <i>Let Me Feel The Love</i> suggests they're not quite there yet.
<br><br>The quality of a soundtrack can make or break a film just as easily as the lead actors mood swings can make or break the contents of his or her trailer inbetween takes.Yes boss, no matter who's doing it, without good sounds behind it, great acting can bomb and it frequently does.But one soundtrack that few would argue with is Ridley Scots 1982 epic Bladerunner. Yes boss, for my own money, it's one of the all time best ambient soundtracks. The eerily spacious sounds of Vangelis original compositions really add something dense and misty to the bleak and barren atmosphere of the Replicant future..Which is all the more reason why I want to go and see Terror Danjah play his own soundtrack for the self same film this Thursday evening in Stratford Circus.Yes boss, Grime producer Terror Danjah, more commonly known for his work with Bruza, Kano and Sadie is going to perform his very own mix of sounds for Bladerunner, live and direct as the film is projected and cut by Ninja Tunes VJ Mox..The event which starts at 8pm is organised by Urban Development who run regular live events in Stratford, East London, including programmes for the annual BBC Radio 3 London Jazz Festival and London Borough Of Newham's Music Month.So what will it be??? Hard bullet banging grime as replicants shatter or smooth and righteous keys and atmospheres as Deckard slips into love??You'll have to come along and find out...I can't wait...Thurs, 19th July 8.00pm @ Stratford Circus, Theatre Square, London E15 1BXAdmission £8 /£5 concessions
We're talking HEAVY HEAVY production. Yes boss, this LP is denser and thicker than a rainforest half way up the Amazon, and rather remarkably it's almost as beautiful.
<i>I’m Your Boyfriend Now</i> is a masterpiece of modern male honesty and lyrical wit and after receiving a tonne of airplay and intense audience response courtesy of Huw Stephens excellent Radio 1 show <i>I’m Your Boyfriend Now</i> is finally set for it’s first major release on July 1st on Cherryade Records.
More or less every type of electronic music is squeezed into this LP. Everything from happy techno, thru dub, electornica, lounge and world. The production is snappy, clean and quick and all told very clever with good humour throughout.
The great thing about this particular LP is that it reflects the general atmosphere of Bow E3, not just the crime and violence that occasionally occurs and that Grime is tarred with being completely embroiled in..
You know you're onto a good and wholesome thing when a tall Eastern European Princess welcomes you at the door with a tequilla shot in a chocolately edible shot glass.
The doubt i have, is that this kind of thing always borders on the unimaginative hippie acoustic singalong that's all very cool, but lacking anything of any substance or lasting value...
"German, Asian or de Taleban, <br/> the woman make me heart go BAM! BAM! BAM! <br/> GOOOOOSEBUMPS!! (KISS ME NECK!) <br/> Girl you give me GOOOOOSEBUMPS!! (she give me gooosebumps) <br/> From the head to me toe <br/> and there's nothing i can do <br/> GOOOOOSEBUMPS!!"
