4th of July

Sunlight

Hard to keep your feet on the ground when you hear that song from Bag Raiders, Sunlight, you just feel like dancing and dancing. At the beginning when there is that beat that seems to go like  fishiki fishiki fishiki, we loved it already then it feels like any other song we hear every night, but as it goes, with the pictures, you feel the music is taking over you, and at the end of the film when it stops, you just play it again, and again! Deliverance by Fishiki Fly Fishing.

Bye Bye Eddy

Eddy Louis, for all the jazz fans, you know who we are talking about, for all the others, we just want to let you know that today we’ve lost one of the best jazz organ players. Eddy Louis was first spotted in the heart of the beat of Saint Germain de Prés in the mid sixties in the swinging Paris, home of jazz musicians from all around the world, mainly because there was no segregation and freedom was within reach. So Eddy strated with Les Doubles Six, the famous a singer’s french band who would make all the jazz standards, theirs! Than Eddy played with all the greatest such as in this peace, Dum Dum, with Stan Getz, René Thomas and Bernard Lubat. Later he became an icon for all the jazz scene of the 70′s leading the way in a more funky/new orleans style. Bye bye Eddy.

Story of the beast

I was in my late teens. Of course, I knew Fight for your Right and the hilarious clip, but I had no idea who the Beastie Boys really were. Then I bought Check your head, almost by chance, and the thing punched me in the face. It was like everything I loved in hip-hop, funk, jazz, punk had fused into one big hot sauce. Three MCees and one DJ… The scratch by DJ Hurricane was simply crazy like nothing I’ve heard before. Fast forward a couple of years and it was Sabotage, it’s meaty riff and the incredible videoclip directed by Spike Jonze, smart ass and fun, almost prophetic of Tarantino and his fascination for cliché action. Later Mix Master Mike would come and redefine what a turntable is, then the Hello Nasty years, and many more memories. All in all, down to that sad day in 2012 when MCA died and put an end to the trajectory, the BBoyz had been in my musical life for 25 years.

Doc Delay mixed the Beastie Boys in a tribute that will certainly make you move like crazy. Pump up that volume and go hear it there : click!!
