MMMM – Monday, April 12, 2010

Normally, nowadays, I’m not much of a dj based dance rock fan, but listening to Kamtin Mohager’s (Chain Gang of 1974) latest made me recall my own dance-club-dj days of the 1970s and 80s here in NoCo.  Back in those days there were plenty of early experimentations being done with electronics/computer based music — and we club djs notoriously mashed up hit records, sometimes layering three or four at a time… fading in and out of parts… extending words and/or phrases… all the while keeping the “song” intact for those on the dancefloor – who generally walked off when anything new hit the speakers.  So, this week it’s all about the “dance” groove … and there’s three recent and/or new recordings out that should appeal to those who like the beat thumping.  Enjoy the groove.

Chain Gang of 1974 – White Guts Website:
Notes: sometimes it’s just a matter of an emotional connection…

Tommy Metz – BlossomWebsite:
Notes: there’s something about Tommy that reminds me of Jon Anderson from the band Yes — This album is available as a free download.

Pretty Lights – Making Up a Changing MindWebsite:
Notes: I have no idea how Derek does this … but he has undoubtedly become one of the best around at it … creating something new from bits and pieces of something old.  This album and others avaialable as a free download.
