A few months ago the guys from BACON FAT LOUIS send a few of their new tracks to miXendorp and asked him If he could make some remixes. The first remix was released in February 2023 and here is the second one.
The band, existing for almost ten years, has now definitely found their own way! No complicated bullshit just some hot steaming no-nonsense boogie with a little taste of that fine voodoo garage-sound and always keeping the Blues as the foundation.
Imagine in some RL Burnside, a slice of the Legendary Shack Shakers, some parts of Bob Log’s helmet, a few pieces of T-model Ford and a little bit of of Left Lane Cruiser.
All of that remixed by miXendorp and his bluestronica.
Between 2008 and 2020 Boo Boo Davis, John Gerritse and Jan Mittendorp worked intensively with this trio.
Together they did lots of touring; hundreds of live shows in more than 20 countries (from Lithuania to the Azores and from Norway to Turkey). They performed at almost all major blues (and jazz) festivals / clubs in Europe (North Sea Jazz, Peer, Montreux, Amal etc.).
Besides the live touring they recorded and released six albums with all original music. The music from these records was featured in several tv series, movies and commercials like Suits, Sons Of Anarchy, Graceland, Resident Alien, The Recall, 911, Taken, Truth To Be Told, Marlboro, 5-Hour-Energy drink etc.).
Unfortunately, covid changed everything and made them stop very sudden in 2020. Now 3 years later they decided to leave it as it is. They are not getting any younger and touring the way they did is very intense (just 3 guys without a road crew).
So instead of investing another two years in trying to “get this show (maybe) on the road” again they prefer to enjoy the great memories and do other things. It was a great adventure and there still is a lot of great music.
On this album you will find 15 of their favorite tracks.
The compilation is available on all stream and download platforms.
At last, here we are to represent Begtas’ official debut EP that emphasize his interest in Native American culture while he kicks up some dark dirt and dust, with a little help from his friend; a local axe, Alper Uzun.
