Love the eighties drumcompouter-sound (as also heard on Kelis & André 3000’s Millionaire).
Heard it on Radio Nova a couple of times already, this (John Dummer’s Famous Music Band – Nine by nine) appeals to my inner folkie;
(clearly not really live and terrible video quality, but still more interesting then watching a still or seeing a record spinning)
In 2006 Oliver Thomas Johnson uploaded a video to YouTube with him “Fooling around on a Micro Korg”;
Two years later he got discovered as Dorian Concept. He released his second album, “Joined Hands” last month on Ninja Tunes. If you’re interested in his technique on the microKORG, be sure to watch this “Studio Science” video by the Red Bull Music Academy.
While waiting for a meeting to begin, I perused the Spotify playlist of a colleague. One of the only names I recognized was Sia.
Aaaah Sia, … How I used to love her. Beautiful songs (both solo and with Zero 7) , wrought with pain, doubt, passion and a splash of quirkiness. Think “Soon we’ll be found” or “Destiny” and above all “Breathe me” (which also featured in the most impressive final of one of the most beautiful and slightly quirky TV shows ever), here in a live version in the KCRW studio’s in 2007;
But I’m afraid the love affair is over, Sia confessed to being happy now and the song on the Spotify playlist was David Guetta’s rather horrible Titanium which Sia provided vocals for. And recent Sia-tracks like “Chandelier“, “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile“, “You’ve changed” or these “7 Songs You Didn’t Know Were Written by Sia” don’t really move me either. I wish Sia all the happiness in the world, but I wish she was still sad. If only a tad.
