  • A passionate plea

    30 Jul 2012, 00:25 by musinum

    I am sending this out to all groups to which I belong. It is not about music, but it is about the world we all live in. It's aimed particularly at my American friends and co-members, but because of America's unique position in the world, it affects everyone and the kind of world we'll all be living in for a long time.

    Group leaders, it's up to you whether you treat this as spam, or post it. I try my best never to spam, but I feel so strongly about this that I'm willing to take the chance.

    I hope that as artists and appreciators of music and other arts, and as people who think and feel for themselves, the majority of us here can appreciate the historic importance of Barack Obama's election to the American Presidency, and the efforts he continues to make (against a very entrenched opposition who represent the interests of the rich and powerful) to make life more livable for the ordinary citizens of the United States and for the rest of the world as well.

    Perhaps some of us who cheered his election four years ago are disappointed that he has not been able to completely transform the world in the ways we had imagined, but as someone who has been involved in social causes for half a century, I can tell you that nothing comes quickly or easily. What is important is the fight and the day-to-day effort.

    I expect that a number of you see the world in exactly the opposite terms, and that an even larger number are not involved in politics and perhaps haen't given a lot of thought to the upsoming election. (I'm speaking primarily to the Americans among you here. Every country has its own issues and its own struggles, and there are brave and hard-working citizens in many countries fighting oppression that we Americans can scarcely imagine!) But what is at stake here is nothing less than the kind of country we will live in for many years to come.

    The message of the right is that if we take care of the rich and privileged, that the crumbs that fall from their table will eventually feed the rest of us. If that doesn't seem right to you, it may be because that particular social experiment was given an extensive trial thru the Reagan administration and thru Bush father and son. The result was disaster.

    What happened was exactly what you might expect when all the safeguards that were built into the system over the years to protect the rest of us from the abuses of money and power, and from greed and corruption, were systematically dismantled. The top tax rate is a small fraction of what it was fifty years ago, and we are being asked to lower it even further, at the price of cutting the services that most first-world countries take for granted: the social safety net, affordable health care, funds for education, care for the environment... the list goes on and on.

    The President has manged to get a good start at pulling this country back from the cliff it was about to fall over... but we are being asked to roll back all that progress and go back to the same things that got us in this mess in the first place. It is as if arsonists have set your house on fire, and then when the firemen are attempting to fight the flames with water, suggesting that we pour on gasoline instead!

    To those of my felliow Americans who feel as I do and want to help, I have set up a grassroots fundraising site with the ambitious goal of $5,000 for the Obama campaign. Any amount helps! My site is here:

  • Optional Feast - Porro EP (incl. Pablo Cahn & TMP Remix) - Electronical Reeds

    9 Jan 2011, 19:40 by sultanelturrah

    Après le succès de son premier release, Zahyara EP, Electronical Reeds continue donc tout naturellement sa collaboration avec le duo belge Optional Feast et toujours avec une sélection de remixers de choix. En effet, après Mirko Loko et Ecco sur le premier release, Optional Feast se voit remixer par Pablo Cahn et TMP. Avec ces deux artistes, le label reste fidèle à son esprit qui est l'alliance entre les noms de renom et les jeunes talents.

    Après nous avoir envoutés avec la chaleur des sons africains, Optional Feast continue de voyager et nous embarque pour un voyage au cœur de l'Orient avec notamment la présence de guitares afghanes. Dès le début, une rythmique dynamique aux accents Tech House se fait entendre, des voix aux tonalités spirituelles et mystiques complètent le titre avant l'arrivée de ces envoutantes guitares. Le break, avec la qualité que l'on commence à reconnaitre à ce duo, se positionne à la perfection pour assurer l'effet maximal. Des percussions et des basses s'ajoutent pour donner au morceau toute sa puissance! Sans oublier la subtile présence de deux kicks, un plus percutant et un autre plus lourd qui n'apparait que vers le tiers du morceau. Ce track évolutif redonne une nouvelle dimension à la musique orientale.

    Pablo Cahn, après l'immense succès de son titre Elle sur Cadenza, propose un remix radicalement différent, au point d'avoir été renommé "remake" malgré la conservation de l'approche orientale et mélodique. Les lignes de percussions de l'original seront pour lui le fil conducteur qu'il complétera avec une mélodie de violons aux harmonies différentes tout au long de la première partie. Pablo Cahn, qui a abandonné les guitares de la version originale, nous emmène aux sons de flûtes qui portent le long et presque onirique break!

    TMP, collectif de jeunes artistes belges, a bien compris l'ambiance orientale du morceau mais préfère nous emmener au Maroc, pour une version plus édulcorée, avec de nombreux découpages, notamment à travers une restructuration des guitares afghanes. Ce remix a la rythmique un peu plus Deep mais maintient la grande efficacité du morceau. "L'utilisation de percussions mélangées à la guitare avec la conservation de la basse originale" résume en quelques mots l'approche de TMP. Le break est une agréable surprise car il nous emmène tout droit dans l'ambiance d'un souk marocain. La rythmique reprend finalement le dessus et nous dirige vers la fin du break qui explose pour nous donner la vision complète de ce qu'a voulu apporter cet artiste par rapport au morceau original.
