Two of the most popular drum and bass website are Drum and Bass Arena and Dogs On Acid. Several hip hop songs have sampled this that include Mr. Hardstyle will be grouped in the hard dance section. This was my first piece of “real” studio equipment.
After all, some fans prefer artists that stick to a tried and true concert formula, playing a tune live that is indistinguishable from the studio version. Other fans want something a little more diverse. Bands that play a different set list every night, for instance.
Impeach The President (The Honey Drippers) – This seemed to be preferred mostly by everyone to sample it rather than remake it. This was not only famously used in hip hop, but also in R&B and other genres. Several hip hop songs have sampled this that include Mr. Loveman by Shaggy, Bitch by Meredith Brooks, and Janet Jackson’s That’s The Way Love Goes.
It was poignantly funky. It started with turntables. Then came the guitar – a riff i couldn’t stop singing for the rest of the night. The unique take on a typical blues call and response peppered with some of the slickest organ lines i have heard in many years, coupled with the sheer magnitude of the big breakbeat drums underscored Amanda Davids’ powerful voice perfectly. Then came the organ solo. The sound itself, was warm but gritty, the playing, malevolent but refined – clearly the culmination of many years of listening to the masters, and even studying with one. All i can say is that i highly reccomend buying a copy. Use it for your alarm clock and your cell phone ringtone, because it will get your attention.
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.
There were occasions of “mass hallucinations”- things felt and seen by multitudes of different folks on different drugs- some even sober (granted, not many). The music itself seemed to have a hallucinogenic power- and if you could create a beautiful painting with your music- you would literally become a “God” in the scene.
That’s exactly what seasoned drummers Michael Travis and Jason Hann had in mind when they formed EOTO in 2006. Hann talked about the band’s electrifying improvisation before a recent gig in Atlanta.
Lastly you will need to have rhythm and some type of music ability. Although I had basic music composition classes while in High School, I am no way a musician or know how to play by reading notes. However, I do have the ability to keep rhythm with a beat metronome and I am able to play melodies along with beats. No matter if you choose Hardware of Software, you will need to be able to keep rhythm and play in key when you make your beats.
