Yes : Dancing Through The Light

The 80s provided an interesting time for Prog rock as it began to dip into the world of synths and New Wave. This led to an interesting collaboration between Yes and The Buggles. Trevor Horn of The Buggles stepped in to vocal duties and Geoff Downes on synth/keys. Here is a track off the remastered version of the album that reminds me of Yellow Magic Orchestra. #2manysynths #2manyvocoder

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!!

In 1974 an amazing collaboration occured between two musical giants to produce an album that very few know about. “War Babies” a prog pop masterpiece that serves as a precursor of what amazing music these musical mavens would create. Todd Rundgren’s Utopia played all the music on the album providing a sound remiscent of the prog greats of the time such as Yes, Genesis & King Crimson. I liken this album to what Minus the Bear does in the 21st century. Prog Pop at its best.
Hall & Oates – Beanie G. and The Rose Tattoo

Justin Timberlake totally rips off Andy Gibb, the youngest Bee Gee’s brother who was too good to be in the group and had to go solo. He was a total baller rock star and died of a drug overdose, too bad.

Check out my boy Zack’s band Radiation Year and their new song from their upcoming cd, “Age of the Everglades”. They are a fresh sounding hardcore band that evokes the energy of Rage Against the Machine and just makes you want to kick someone in the face.
Radiotion Year – Sex On the Beach

Here is some German electro goodness from our boy, Boys Noize. Cranking out the distorted, tight, synth sounds that no one can resist. Check out the rest of his album Oi Oi Oi which comes out this week.
