P.L.U.R. :: Scott Henry and Dieselboy - East Coast Science Mixtape (download)

Scott Henry and Dieselboy East Coast Science Mixtape Barrel dEM

In 1996, I picked up a mixtape at a warehouse party that featured Dieselboy and Scott Henry. It saw so much play that as it was wearing out, I transferred it to another tape and got a few more years out of it. Eventually, like my other music possessions, it was lost to the ravages of time. Since then, I had come across the Dieselboy side and have listened to it many times. It might very well be one of my favorite drum n' bass mixes ever. But, it wasn't until yesterday that I decided to listen to Scott Henry's mix again and boy, it sure took me back. It stills sounds as fresh today as it did on that first listen in 1996.

Burning Man: The Documentary

Burning Man The Documentary Barrel dEM

Russia Today has put together this incredible documentary on Burning Man - the annual festival in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. I've yet to go myself, but I know many who have gone and I've attended regional Burns in and around Chicago. The experience is like nothing anywhere else. Burners come from many walks of life, but they can be hedonistic, creative, passionate, caring and responsible - as you see here.

Trayvon Martin Tribute :: Yasiin Bey, Dead Prez, and Mikeflo - Made You Die Barrel dem

Members of Dead Prez, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), and Mikeflo have joined forces to create a tribute for the late Trayvon Martin. Made You Die is a hardcore manifesto to the judge, jury and media about the mishandling of this case. Yasiin Bey who recently suffered force feeding to prove what prisoners in Guantanamo go though, raps:

You think that they see a neighbor, they see a villain is out,
Standard answer it was random police movement,
Inconclusive confusion, the present news clips, callous bullshit,
Every talking head is clueless, man they stuck on channel stupid

MANDATORY :: Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures (1979) Full Album

Joy Division Unknown Pleasures Barrel dem

In 1979, Joy Division changed the musical landscape with their debut album - Unknown Pleasures on Factory Records. The music was dark and gloomy, which resonates with their audience even to this day. Originally named Warsaw, the band primarily consisted of Ian Curtis (vocals and occasional guitar), Bernard Sumner (guitar and keyboards), Peter Hook (bass guitar and backing vocals) and Stephen Morris (drums and percussion). They worked with Martin Hannett to produce Unknown Pleasures.

The band initially disliked the "spacious, atmospheric sound" of the album, which did not reflect their more aggressive live sound. Hook said in 2006, "It definitely didn't turn out sounding the way I wanted it ... But now I can see that Martin did a good job on it ... There's no two ways about it, Martin Hannett created the Joy Division sound." Hook also noted that he was able to hear Curtis's lyrics and Sumner's guitar parts for the first time on the record, because during gigs the band played too loudly.

The album's cover, which I used to think was a picture of a mountain range or some sort of "Joy Division" is actually a reverse print image of radio waves from pulsar CP 1919, from The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Astronomy. It may be one of the most iconic images in rock history.

In 1980, a troubled Ian Curtis would take his own life in his home in Manchester. The remaining members went on to form New Order, achieving critical success.

FRIDAY EPICNESS :: Deodato - Also Sprach Zarathustra


Eumir Deodato (full name Eumir Deodato de Almeida, born 22 June 1943, Rio de Janeiro) is a Brazilian pianist, composer, record producer and arranger, primarily based in the jazz realm but who historically has been known for eclectic melding of big band and combo jazz with varied elements of rock/pop, R&B/funk, Brazilian/Latin, and symphonic or orchestral music. Mainly, his records can be categorized as pop/jazz or crossover jazz. His successes as an original artist (keyboards) occurred mainly in the 1970s. Since then, he has produced or arranged music in more than 500 albums for acts ranging from Kool and the Gang to Björk, Christophe and K.D. Lang.

His first album in the U.S., Prelude, released in 1972, was of a big band Latin jazz style that immediately attracted a wide audience. The album was produced by Creed Taylor on his CTI (Creed Taylor Inc.) label. The nine-minute funky version of Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra, entitled "Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001)", won the 1974 Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance. It went to No. 2 in the pop charts in the US, No. 3 in Canada, and No. 7 in the UK and was CTI's biggest single. The album climbed to No. 3 in the Billboard chart, the label's best-selling album and an amazing sales achievement for a jazz-based release

FLWRS + MARALISA Exclusive Interview // Muddy Your Feet EP


I really get geeked when I find out about great new bands that are not widely known. It is my mission to share this talent far and wide so that others can enjoy them as much as I have.

FLWRS + MARALISA is such a duo, made up of Emiliano Hernández Flowerman and Maralisa Simmons-Cook. They recently came together to make music and have released their first EP on Belgian Man Records - Muddy Your Feet. I had a chance to talk to them both today on Facebook and here's the transcript of that interview:

Maralisa, you live in Brooklyn and Emiliano, you're at Oberlin in Ohio, how did you two meet and start making music?

Emiliano - We actually grew up together ... Maralisa was like best friends with my little sister when they were really little. Didn't you guys go to preschool together?

Maralisa - Emiliano and I grew up together in the same small town, and after losing touch during both high school and college, we reconnected out of the blue when Emiliano came to visit friends of mine in Brooklyn this past semester.

Emiliano - Yeah, we went to Roberta's in Brooklyn and then went to our friend's photography showing at an art gallery and on the way over there i was like "yo Misa we should do some music together". She listened to a couple tracks i had on soundcloud at the time and was interested.

Maralisa - He had mentioned that he was dipping his toes into some production type stuff and wanted to collaborate on a song or two, but after a few very rough tracks we were thrilled at how well our sounds worked together and chose to turn his EP release into a collaborative EP.

Emiliano - Hahaha yeah, I couldn't believe how well the tracks were sounding once i got her vocals.

So were you together during the making of the album or did you do a "Postal Service"?

Emiliano - Yeah, we pulled a Postal Service ... we actually haven't seen each other since that day when I asked her if she wanted to make music together.

That's awesome! Can you both tell me a little about your musical backgrounds?

Emiliano - yeah, I started playing drums in 8th grade i think, and went on to playing with several bands in high school and early college, mostly funk, rock and instrumental bands. This past fall I took a TIMARA class at Oberlin College, which is basically a department in the Conservatory that specializes in experimental electronic music, where I learned all about the history of electronic music and how to use Logic Pro and stuff. Once I started producing, I loved it so much that I couldn't stop. It was all I could think about. I taught myself how to use Ableton and also some music theory.

Maralisa - We composed the tracks entirely via social media, tediously sending tracks and rough cuts back and forth, texting, emailing, facebooking...after a semester my thumbs are just exhausted. hah!

Emiliano - Sooo many emails and phone calls and texts ... I'm sure Maralisa is exhausted from getting so many messages from me.

So, what's your background Maralisa? Have you been singing for a while? 

Maralisa - I've been singing since around third grade, and became seriously invested in it during high school, at which point I joined a large teen a cappella group and continued private lessons, performing in student showcases and occasionally with my band Brick n' Honey. Who knows why that name was decided?

Emiliano - I remember Maralisa being known in the area as having an incredible voice ...

Maralisa - I was raised up mainly on heavy hitting blues artists such as Taj Mahal, Keb' Mo', Jon Cleary, and great female vocalists such as Nina Simone and Billie Holiday. Billie was ALWAYS my favorite...when I began performing jazz music my mom would bring me a white gardenia to wear in my hair and I just thought I was the coolest thing since I don't know what.

You should check out the Nina Simone rework that I just posted yesterday.

Maralisa - I will absolutely check it out!

Emiliano - Maralisa is also a fan favorite at this little restaurant/club called The Sleeping Lady in our town, Fairfax, CA

Maralisa - Now as a vocal jazz major, I'm studying both the traditional jazz idiom in school as well as experimenting with genre all over the map and trying to collaborate with as many musicians as possible. Doing collaborations has already improved my own songwriting and sense of style tremendously, so I am continuing to hunt for projects!

I would have to agree with you Emiliano ... Maralisa, you have a beautiful voice. So, on this EP Maralisa, where you the primary songwriter?

Maralisa - Thank you so much! I did write the lyrics and melodies/harmonies to the songs, and the production is entirely Emiliano.

Emiliano - Yeah, its kinda interesting actually cause the songs are fairly evenly split up. Drumdrunk was an acapella that Maralisa sent to me and i produced over it. Wake was one of my older productions which Maralisa really liked.

Maralisa - Drumdrunk, though, was a piece that I had written in the privacy of my apartment, mainly as a joke, about a year ago with chords/lyrics/melody, and it was originally a vocal piece recorded on my computer. Emiliano loved it and created a kick ass track for it.

Emiliano - Haha yeah the original version of Drumdrunk was kinda lo-fi, using the vocals she recorded on her computer
hahaha ... and Growl was one that I produced specifically for Maralisa.

On Drumdrunk - you warn about dating a certain type of musician, is that from experience?

Maralisa - Oh yes, totally from experience. That makes for the best songwriting though right?

Absolutely!

Emiliano - It's also funny cause that was the first song we did together, and I'm a drummer, so it was slightly ironic.

Maralisa - Although it could pertain to singers-dating-drummers specifically, I wanted it to be a sassy love song for any girl who's fallen for a musician (which is basically inevitable).

We all know the dangers of dating musicians too well ... LOL!

Emiliano - I might write a song warning drummers to avoid singers ;-)

Maralisa - Preach!

Emiliano, I understand that you are moving to Brooklyn, what's next on the horizon for FLWRS + MARALISA?

Emiliano - Yeah I'll be heading out there in about a month! Maralisa and I already have a gig lined up in the fall but we're gonna spend some time rehearsing and getting our live show together. Hopefully we'll start working on an album before the end of the year, working on new material.

Maralisa - Totally, Emiliano and I are going to start rehearsing right away and getting some more music together in order to perform!

Emiliano - We might enlist the help of some other musicians to fill out our sound live.

Now, I see that you guys are doing something special on Bandcamp, giving away stories and portraits with each purchase - what's that about? 

Emiliano - Hahaha we kinda wanted to give people something personal to enjoy with our music. Since we don't have any physical releases yet, people don't really have anything to hold in their hands when they listen to our music
we wanted people to have something to have personally from us.

That's a great idea ... something that is definitely missing in an age of digital downloads.

Emiliano - hah thanks!

How do you guys get picked up by Belgian Man Records?

Emiliano - Well I just graduated from Oberlin College and a friend of mine, Matthew Gallagher, is in a band called Wax Monsters. They're great, have kind of an 80's synth sound ... nnyway I was asking him about promotion tips and after he listened to the EP he was floored. He immediately sent it to his label, Belgian Man Records, and they signed us that very day.

That's very cool!

Emiliano - They're great, its a really tight community. Everyone is always posting tracks that they're working on and people give feedback and stuff. Someone asked a question about compressing 808's the other day and I learned a lot haha ..
they are the coolest guys on the planet, support supportive of everyone within their community and constantly looking to collaborate, remix tracks, or chat about music interests. It feels like a giant family!

Do you believe in UFO's and aliens because I hear of a lot of sightings in Brooklyn ... maybe they are attracted to all the swass graffiti?

Emiliano - I definitely think that we can't be the only life in the universe, though honestly it's probably unlikely that we'll encounter other intelligent life. Distance is so great in the universe that we'd probably be extinct before any other intelligent life reaches us haha ... (I've been watching too much Sci-Fi... my girlfriend is a huge fan)

Spoken like my favorite SETI guy - Seth Shostack ... Maralisa - your thoughts on aliens in Brooklyn?

Maralisa - No comment. You know, my dad tried to get me into aliens, Mars, etc., but I never really found an interest in it. If they were to appear I would be totally okay with that though. Haha I'm just joking!

haha ok ... anything else either of you want to add before we wrap up?

Emiliano - Yeah I'd just wanna add that we're very very excited about continuing to work on music and playin shows, if anyone wants to hit us up, we'd be delighted to play anywhere near the NYC area.

Maralisa - Ditto to that! Bat/Bar Mitzvahs, weddings, you name it

Emiliano - Haha yeah even if it's your grandma's birthday, we're down. Also Maralisa swears that she lost her first tooth at my house when we were littlebut i have no recollection of that, so take it with a grain of salt.

Maralisa - No I totally did! Maybe it wasn't the first tooth, but it was definitely one of the first and it came out while I was eating pasta, which was terrifying.

Emiliano - hahaha what kinda pasta was it? Knowing Camila, probably pesto.

... the crunchy kind apparently.

Emiliano - Haha Camila and I loved pesto when we were little... still do. Actually i think i swallowed my first tooth, it disappeared during the night and i was really upset cause i didn't have anything to leave the tooth fairy.

Sounds painful to have to pass a tooth ... maybe it's still inside.

Well, thanks to both of you for doing this. It's been a lot of fun. Best of luck to you on your musical journey and please let us know when you've got new releases, news, shows, etc.

Emiliano - of course! thank you so much! We're so stoked to be talking to you! Big shoutout to Barrel-dEM!

Maralisa - Thank YOU! It's been a real treat.

Teedra Moses - Be Your Girl (Kaytranada Edition) DOWNLOAD



Kaytranada has an incredible knack for remixing already great tunes into dancefloor masterpieces.  He first caught my ear with his remix of Erykah Badu's Love of My Life and hasn't disappointed me yet.   His rework of Teedra Moses - Be Your Girl has that lovely filtered sound, delightfully swung hats, and of course Teedra Moses providing super sweet vocals.  I could link individual tunes all day but I'll just drop his Soundcloud and a little bonus video and call it a day.

CLASSIC DISCO :: Manu Dibango - Soul Makossa



The first disco track to break onto the Billboard top ten, was Manu Dibango's "Soul Makossa". Actually, it was more African than disco based, but no matter, it paved the way for the disco revolution on this month in 1973.

"Soul Makossa" was a 1972 recording by the Paris-based Cameroonian artist Emmanual "Manu" Dibango, and it is now best remembered as the source of the rhythmic chant—"Mama-ko, mama-sa, maka-mako-sa"—that appears in Michael Jackson's "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin''" (1982) and Rihanna's "Don't Stop The Music" (2006). Issued on the French label Fiesta, "Soul Makossa" might never have been heard on this side of the Atlantic had disco legend and DJ, David Mancuso not pulled it from a shelf in a Jamaican record shop in Brooklyn one day in the spring of 1973 and, after hearing it, immediately recognized its percussion-heavy, Afro-Latin sound and repetitive chorus as absolutely perfect for the dance floor.

Beethoven, Symphony 7, Allegretto, mvt 2



Easily the most famous and influential of all the composers who ever lived, Ludwig Van Beethoven was gifted with an acute sense of hearing. He was trained from youth on the piano by his father and by his early twenties had become a virtuoso in Vienna. He composed and performed a number of great pieces in a short time. By the age of 26, he started going deaf from tinnitus and eventually had to stop performing altogether. 15 years later, he was completely deaf and from that point he stuck to composing and writing.

His Middle (Heroic) period began shortly after Beethoven's personal crisis brought on by his recognition of encroaching deafness. It includes large-scale works that express heroism and struggle. Middle-period works include six symphonies (Nos. 3–8), including Symphony # 7, which is very dark and brooding.

Nova Nova - Tones



After many years of searching, I've finally found it. This was my favorite track from a chill out CD I once owned. Having lost the CD long ago, the only thing I knew was that it might be one of the Cafe Del Mar series. I was right.

This might be one of the greatest piano tunes ever. So powerful, so beautiful ... words don't do justice.

Lucius - Go Home



Who are Lucius? Take two powerful female vocalists and back them up with three dashing mustachioed men, throw in some instruments and a Brooklyn D.I.Y. attitude ... and you might get there. Fortunately, Lucius has come together to bring us some great music. Check out these lyrics -

I’m hard headed
but completely soft inside
I’m all wound up and still
the only thing that I can say is
I don’t need you anyway

Wolfgang Gartner - Anaconda



Remember when all dance tracks use to be eight minutes or longer? Yeah, me neither ... just kidding. I guess the kids don't have the attention span that they used to have. That being said - my only problem the Wolfgang Gartner's Anaconda is that it's too short. Everything else about it is perfect, in my opinion. I guess there's always repeat.

Lou Urias - Doing What I Gotta Do! from cmptrwhiz on Vimeo.


Long Beach lyricist Lou Urias loves his momma ... and he's reppin street cred too! On Do What I Gotta Do, Lou explains why he keeps it real as opposed to - "everybody watered down .. acting for an oscar." Honestly, this is refreshing stuff compared to a lot of hip hop lately talking about big booty and smoking weed.

BREAKING BAD TOP TUNES

I've been re-watching the award nominated show Breaking Bad (with my girlfriend, who has never seen it) in anticipation of the new season starting in August. I've realized that one of the things that makes the show so dynamic is the superb choice of music that's used in many of the scenes. Here are a few of my favorites, BITCH!

ROCK DOC :: A Band Called Death / Movie Review



What a ride! I just finished watching this film and just have to say that I'm really moved by what I saw and heard, so lets start at the beginning.

In the 1970's, three black brothers from Detroit - David, Dannis and Bobby Hackney started making music. They were inspired by their parents and also the rock sound that became vibrant at the time, including Alice Cooper and The Who. They took on the name "Rock Fire Funk Express" but after the unexpected of their loss of their father; David, the leader of the group, decided on the name Death. These guys quickly became talented at their instruments and went to record and album that was years ahead of its time. Working with a local producer, the guys tried seeking a record deal and no one would sign them mainly because of the name of the band. They got an offer if they would change the name of the band, but David wasn't having it. The band used their own money to press a 7" single - Politicians in my Eyes / Keep On Knocking, which they distributed in an attempt to get radio play.

Eventually, the group got tired of all the rejection. They moved to New England, where two of the brothers moved on to pursue other musical careers. David had always believed in the music and concept of the band and went back to Detroit where he lived out his days. Before his passing, one of his last acts was giving his brother Bobby the master recordings of their time in the studio as Death saying that some day someone would come looking for that music.

The story gets surreal when nearly 35 years after Death disbanded, the sons of Dannis and Bobby Hackney rediscovered their fathers' music, realized how talented they were and what a rare thing this was. Serious collectors were paying top dollar for the rare 7" release. The sons formed a band and started playing covers in tribute and to spread the word. Eventually, the original Death recordings were re-released and the two remaining members went on tour to finally realize the dream of their departed brother.

It's rare to find a true story like this, where the dream of one brother was so strong that it caused the other two to support him no matter what - even if his dream didn't come about until after he left this earthly plane.

You can check out the album - For The Whole World To See in it's entirety here. You can watch the full film online from Drafthouse Films.
