Black and Tan will release a new Rivherside album

In a few weeks we will release

B&T 956 – Rivherside – Electraw Blues Album

It will be the first full album of this French electro blues pioneer and here you can listen to a few samples and get an idea about the music.

After playing for many years in different blues bands, Renaud Villet, a singer / guitarist / producer based in Clermont-Ferrand, France, launched his solo career in 2012 under the name Rivherside. His first album, “Something on My Mind,” was strongly blues / roots orientated.  It got great reviews and as a result Rivherside did more than 80 concerts as a one-man-band. In 2014 he decided to broaden his horizon and began to mix Blues with Electro and Hip-Hop sounds, releasing the self-produced, 4-track “Electraw Blues EP.” Rivherside also began performing live in this electro configuration, playing samples and using Ableton Live software. In 2015 he collaborated with rapper TDB and together they released the “Inner Voices” EP in early 2016 . And now, he’s back with a new 12-track album. The release date is set for June 13, 2016 and the album will be available at all download and streaming platforms.

Biography

After playing for many years in different blues bands, Renaud Villet, a singer/guitarist/producer based in Clermont-Ferrand, France, launched his solo career in 2012 under the name Rivherside. His first album, “Something on My Mind,” with a strong Blues/Roots orientation, was released in 2013 on Keffren Records. Acclaimed by music critics, it allowed Rivherside to perform more than 80 concerts as a One Man Band accompanied by a Farmer Footdrum.

In 2014 he decided to broaden his horizons and began to mix Blues with Electro and Hip-Hop sounds, releasing the self-produced, 4-track “Electraw Blues EP.” Rivherside began to perform live in an electro configuration, playing samples using Ableton Live software.

In 2015 he also collaborated with rapper TDB and along with him he released the “Inner Voices” EP in early 2016 on the new electro label Sticks and Stones Records. Now, he’s back with a new 12-track album; the long-awaited Electraw Blues Album. All part of Rivherside’s quest to push the envelope of the Blues universe…

miXendorp – live impression

It is very hard for me to explain what I do during my live sets. I use my computer as a second instrument and it gives me access to my complete record collection and I can use, mix and manipulate everything that is on the hard disk with my guitar and also add images. As you can clearly see it is a Work-In-Progress; trying to create a new musical language by using all technical possibillities that I can lay my hand on. Here is a short video impression of miXendorp live at Roepaen Blues Festival in April this year. It will help to visualize a little of what I am doing during a live set.
Material is shot and edited by Erik Spikmans of VormEnVast.

Biography

The alchemists arrived with the slang of rap, the nectar of folk music, the rhythm of bigbeat and they mixed these ingredients in the smoky pot of blues and accidentally fell into it a bit of magic mushroom, too! They introduced their audience to the black-rooted blues music and showed the path to the younger generation who is following their steps now.

The band creates a mixture from the old band’s experiences and from a new, unique, fresh sound – the visual background is strengthening the overall effect! The electronic music background is to be provided by Szabi Máté (Secta Chameleon) and Dure (effects, electronic drum).

Recently we celebrated the 100th birthday of the father of blues and respected renewal of the genre: Robert Johnson. The Mississippi Big Beat continues to modernize the genre, the blues basics are boosted up with electronic loops and effects and they take the ‘20s music into the 2011’s sound! The show builds up from the songs of the ’20s and ’30s and we are arriving to the big beat sound finally. The Hungarian apostles of the Blues Beat are now launched to the international seas of Nu Blues.

Biography

thank God not all dutch DJ’s play EDM !!

Expect no ‚music for the millions’ but an original and eclectic mix of blues, jazz, world, funk, techno and all kind of other great music with a beat. But since talking about music doesn’t make much sense I suggest you just listen. miXendorp blasts new life into the style by blending modern beats and blasts from the future into existing tracks for a fresh sound that makes the rhythmic heart of the blues beat stronger than ever.

BLUES always had a strong BEAT and was intended to get people to dance. Unfortunately it has grown into something different and the ‘gatekeepers of the blues tradition’ try to keep exactly like that. This conservative attitude is probably the reason you hardly see anybody under 50 at a blues concert nowadays. The blues used to be party music; now it can be played again at the hippest modern parties, festival and clubs ..…. and still feel down home.

Since March 2011 he did sets at FUSION FESTIVAL (Germany), SZIGET (Hungary), NORTH SEA JAZZFESTIVAL (Holland), FESTIVAL DRANOUTER (Belgium) and COGNAC BLUES PASSIONS (France). Plus clubs in Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, France, Turkey and Italy. One of the miXendorp remixes, released on Black and Tan Records in 2013, is now picked for a new compilation. The original song (20 Years) by Big George Jackson was also released on Black and Tan Records in 2001. This new compilation (BREAKING BLUES) was put together by DJ Eliazar, one of the co-founders of Speakeasy Electro Swing.

If there is a possibillity he likes to add some live authentic blues guitar and video to the music.

A few quotes from the press:
DOWNBEAT (USA): Without debasing or trivializing tradition, loops and beats explode with kinetic rhythmic energy
SOUL M8 (UK): This is raw creative energy
MOJO (UK): The intrinsic down-home qualities of the source material jostle intriguingly with the superimposed urban beats.
DRS3 (Switzerland): miXendorp erfindet den Blues (fast) neu

Biography

Mischa den Haring and Jan Mittendorp; two Dutch musicians/producers joined forces in this new production unit. Both of them have more then 25 years of live stage experience and they combine that with 2014 recording and production techniques. Like moonshine, the music was slow brewed in seclusion during all-night-and-day marathons attended only by the two members and the ghosts of the past, who were eager to have their voices echo into the modern world.

In February 2014 they released their first tracks on Black and Tan Records and April 2014 their first album production: a new BOO BOO DAVIS release (What Kind Of Shit Is This?) After this succesful project they did several other projects and these tracks will be released individually on BLu ACiD Records, a subsidiary label of Black and Tan.

Preserving the power and originality of american roots music but at the same time not excluding influences from any other musical styles nor any technology that is available today.
