More summer! I was listening to an old vinyl compilation (jack Trax - the first volume on Lynx records) sort of in the background. All of a sudden a track came on that just stuck. the magic starts alf way through the track when the vocal kicks in. Not at all what I expected. It sounds like you try to be soulful but still keeping your voice down not to disturb your mom that's watching the telly downstairs.
Gabba's been rathere slow so I take my chance and contradicts stuff I've said before, sorry slinky. :) Here's something for the summer. Let's put your car top down and play it.
Music wise, this track has the sublo/grime/whatever wobbly bass and hollow lead. Very digital and cold but then with Dana's german vocals on top?
Oh, and please give me a tip on where I can get hold of their Immer Wieder EP
This is a song that've been stuck in my head for a while. I love the bassline and it reminds me of Talking Heads. Maybe not so much how TH sounds but more how I remember them sounding.
"Stupid dance. Let's talk, talk, talk."
when I was younger we used to always hang out in my friends' flat. He had two turntables and lot's of records and we used to drink beer and take turns mixing. This track makes me think of all the times I've hung out there.
I sort of miss it.
About the track, it's repetitive and a bit dubby techno. Sounds a wee bit like Bandulu (when Bandulo's good). If you like this check out the stuff he's released as Mr. James Barth. It's sort of a slowed down version of this.
I was Bar-DJing with a friend when all of a sudden he handed me this album and said: "Take it. You may actually play this." And I did. And I often play this album at home.
As a musical description, I quote the album cover:
"Is this Jan Delay and Tropf recording under a different name in a last ditch attempt to get their cruddy music on the radio?"
The Magnus Uggla track made me think of this one. Swizz loopie music that makes you turn your top off your convertable and drive through the city towards the raster sunset in an Out Run fashion.
3.40 into the track things take off. And the lead synth with all that noise in it takes off 30 seconds later and I'm so hooked.
This is distinct, fun and bouncy, get down and groove.
I don't really understand all the DJ rambles about in all them Jamaican stuff, but I love it still. I turn that right back to you all. Swedish skank, an excellent soundtrack for a summer night out. The Latin Kings are the swedish hip hop oldies. In broken swedish, featuring Daddy Boastin, they explain why they are the best.
We don't have the Car Boots like that in Sweden, but there are these flea markets. People bring their crap (at least 99% of it) and sell it. I got this a couple of years ago on such a market and paid like 5 swedish kr for it.
I love old Wham tracks. Don't know why.
When alot of the mid '80s stuff is gloomy and doomy, wham made everything shine. I still like mix it in my sets now and then
This track is off a 7" double A side. It's the longest track I've ever seen on a 7" single (and when you hear the sound quality, you know why). On top of that the record is coloured with some serious scratch/cue noises that I've added during the years.
I guess that's the sound of a record you really like.
