“They just don’t make ’em like they used to!” If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard an elder say that, I wouldn’t need that Social Security check that my generation probably won’t get anyway. Despite the old tired saying, there is some truth in it. There was a time when music had to actually be performed and not programmed. And if you made a mistake on tape, you had to record it again thus leaving no room for amateurs. Those were the days! This week’s new releases from the Cavendish, Poke and Deneb Records music libraries blend the sounds of yesterday with a fresh new twist. Think of it in the same vein as Dre and Snoop jamming with a hologram of Tupac, minus the whole rapping thing. Respect!
CAV317-319 Archive Remixed
The Archive Remixed series is a marriage of old Funk and Soul with the modern synthesizer. Unlike Kim Kardashian’s marriage, this one is built to last! These tracks are seething with confidence and all around bad-ass-ery. You may need to pull out your shades to even listen to it, you’ve been warned!
POKE011 Vintage & Electro Swing
POKE011 Vintage & Electro Swing takes good-time swing straight from Grandma’s gramophone and pumps it through an 808. Prohibition has never been more fun!
