“So – let’s get going, shall we? Send the check for US$400,000 (advance on licensing fees) out by Fedex to Mickey by tomorrow and we’ll talk a little later in the day about merch, percentages, backend, soundtrack, ASCAP, etc.”
-Steely Dan
Ha, too bad there were no Darjeeling Limited inspired Steely Dan tracks in the movie.

Steely Dan – Hey Nineteen
Steely Dan – Peg

“But if we were great musicians and we had big studios, I think we would make something that sounds like late-’70s, West Coast pop music, like Steely Dan or something. But because we have to work in a simpler way, it ends up sounding like what we do.”

Hmmmm interpolation?

“I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” helped inspire the song “Billie Jean”. “Michael Jackson once said directly to me that he hoped I didn’t mind that he copied that groove (from “I Can’t Go For That”). That’s okay; it’s something we all do. Eddie Van Halen told me that he copied the synth part from “Kiss on My List” and used it in “Jump”. I don’t have a problem with that at all.”
-Daryl Hall
Hall & Oates- You’re Too Much Too Soon (Todd Rundgren Produced)
One of the best synth lines ever, you cannot resist to dance.
Van Halen – Dancing In The Streets

Hall & Oates are going on a small North American tour in the winter, I am thinking of seeing them in Boston December 8, partying with drunk middle aged couples, woo, I will probably be one of the few college students there. Hall & Oates Tour Dates

Danger is the future of this French Touch revival. Justice pioneered that distorted heavy metal dance music but that can only be taken so far and ripped off by many. This is exactly what happened to Daft Punk, Alan Braxe, Cassius, Stardust in the late 90s, everyone began taking their sound which led to a rise of mediocre dance tracks. Danger fuses the nostalgic synth sounds of early video games with slap bass, distorted guitar/synth creating this epic sounding dance music, cerebral dance music.

Danger is releasing his first EP on Ekleroshock Records (Ekleroshock Records) in a few months with a remix by DatA. Danger just posted a new track on his myspace, Revolte at 22H10, so check it out.

Danger Myspace

This is my fav track by Danger fusing 90s Freestyle future female robot vocals with Rick Wakeman-esque weaving synth lines puncated by a tight drum and power chord rhythm secion. Try to figure out the lyrics. It is some Dada shit.

Danger – 11H30

Danger, Para One, and SebastiAn are at the forefront of this electro revival. Cerebral Dance Music for all!!
