It’s always interesting to discover nodes where music flow changed its direction, especially when these nodes are the songs. Here are a few of such milestone songs.
“The Love I Lost” of Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes (Philadelphia International Records, 1973) gave to world “Four-on-the-Floor” rhythm pattern.
BTW 2nd pretender to the palm is Temptation’s “Law Of The Land” (Motown, 1973), but actually it has only 4/4 kick drum without hissing open hi-hat.
Certainly I could not miss the song that gifted its own standard rhythm pattern to Hip-Hop. This is fabulous The Soul Searchers’ “Ashley’s Roachclip” (Sussex, 1974). Short drum break on 3:31 and the rest is… 5 pages on whosampled.com.
“I got enough!” Mad horns and insane strings making me karaaazy!… And dj’s must love it too… (more…)
|Every thirty or twentysomething will easily remember this old anime, named differently according to the country that broadcast the show (e.g. Captain Future, Capitan Futuro or Capitaine Flam).|
It is worth noting that every European country had its own version of the OST. While, in France for example, Jean-Jacques Debout (see previous post) recorded it, Christian Bruhn released his own version for the German market, in 1980.
This OST spawned countless remixes and cover versions. Some are o.k., others are really bad.
It must be the most popular hit by this chamber orchestra led by the composer Giampiero Reverberi. Certainly not a masterpiece but the melody is very nice… and the following recent “covers” are even more entertaining IMHO:
Here’s a longer remix from 1984 by Julius T & Hens Z:
This big hit has even been covered by an Italian DJ/producer (more…)
|Linda Jane Bull did an awesome job with this ABBA track.She(?) trimmed all the fuss and the extra-sweet pop elements from the original version and spared one single loop only, but what a loop!
This is a wonderful edit full of flange and reverb: the end-result is really dubby and cosmic.
Bouncy on the dancefloor !
Of course it contains a groovy sample. (more…)
And I think it must be a pleasure for all the lovers of the disco’s dark side. Now welcome to “the strange world of Bernard Fevre”.
It contains samples (more…)
It is worth noting that the last song is a redux of a Rock song from the mid 60s that generated quite a few cover versions throughout the years. (more…)
