Air 10000 Hz Legend

It´s hard to tell about Air (which means Amour Iganination Rêve (Love Phantasy Dream)), I´m pretty sure all of you have heard a song the one or other times, it´s kinda funky, electronic jazz stuff.

Get it!

Barcelona Zona Bastarda (VA 2CD Comp./2002)

October 4, 2007 at 12:40 pm (hiphop, jazz, music, rnb, roots, soul)

Barcelona

If I think back, I had a lot of those compilations of the town where I lived and the cities around, crappy pop bullshit and silly hardrock next to each other, but this is different, it gives you a good overview about the Barcelona music scene, from ska, reggae, soul, to rock or electronic. Most of the artist are unknown for me, so I can give you the tracklist, but no further information about the artist, don´t be lazy google it yourself!

Ennio Morricone – Crime And Dissonance

September 4, 2007 at 7:47 am (classic, jazz, music)

Crime And Dissonance

Born in 1928 Ennio Morricone is today one of the most famous TV/cinema composers of the world and my favourite. It would take too long, to list all his film musics or his compositions for live concerts, but you will surely know movies like The Untouchables, For A Fistfull Of Dollars, Lolita etc.
He also worked together with artists like Celine Dion.
If you now think about Italo-Western movies and epic soundtracks, then you´re wrong here, this one is very experimental, the 30 tracks selected by Mike Patton are, like the title shows you, dissonant. Mostly composed in the 60´s and 70´s, you will find some rarities.
No music for every day, but a very special record, if you are open minded in modern-classic or if you are a Ipecac Fan.
