The 10 year “scene” from 1990-2000 in Florida certainly went through a decisive change in its course. Frantic Clam exudes indie rock with a hint of glam while Rook falls more into Flamingo Cantina’s niche of reggae-rock.
Recently, the genre has started becoming more popular with youth around the world thanks to the internet revolution. Drum and bass is synonymous to jungle, a type of electronic dance music which can be identified by its fast tempo and broken beat drums. The bass is also very heavy. Though today it is still underground, it is slowly surfacing and making its way into youth culture, especially in the UK, where it originated.
First, Frantic Clam, Rook, and Condiment Sandwich will be playing at Flamingo Cantina tonight (Do512 link). It should be an interesting show, as each of the three bands brings a wholly different sound. Frantic Clam exudes indie rock with a hint of glam while Rook falls more into Flamingo Cantina’s niche of reggae-rock. Condiment Sandwich brings forward breakbeat jazz with a touch of hip-hop. For 5 dollars, you won’t see a more diverse, talented group of bands tonight.
Always check the format of the song you want to sample. The MP3 format is not well-matched with most software and typically just transfer your sample to MP3.
EOTO is now a full time gig for the pair with a seemingly endless tour featuring over 700 shows and sold out performances in every market in the country. They fine-tune their approach and skill with each and every show they play, making the next performance more unique than the last.
Looking back, I guess the funniest thing about Ravers creating their own religion-was that even those at the forefront of it, couldn’t explain it. Go figure, half the time we could barely talk (lol). My opinion on the religious aspect?- There definitely was.”something.” Was it the drugs which created this awe-inspiring feeling of “togetherness?” Or again, was it the shear power of the masses coming together? Certainly history shows us that when large crowds come together; there will be some sort of mutual feeling shared. Look at the flock to Mecca, the ability of Hitler to brainwash, Jonestown, or even just local churches. There are hundreds of examples.
Do you remember the feeling of the first dew drop of the morning at 5AM- while dancing with the hottest chick you’d never know her name- on a rooftop surrounded by palmtrees, overlooking the skyscape of the whole city that only you knew as it “really ” was- listening to best damn downtempo DJ that you’ve ever seen?
The night was capped off with a salute to the production team who had backed Amanda Davids’ latest recording, including DJ Xplisit, Shai Locke, and mastering genius Karl Machat. And then – as quickly as it had captivated us, it was over. It left us wanting. It left us excited to buy Canadian music. It left us willing to pursue the discovery of underpromoted arts and culture. It left us wishing we had restocked our cars with our favourite Herbie Hancock and Mary J. Blige cd’s for the ride home.
