new single ElectroBluesSociety

Today we released

B&T 981 – What’s Going On – ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis

This is the sixth single release from the ‘transatlantic quarantaine sessions” that ElectroBluesSociety did with Boo Boo Davis

Between 1998 and 2020 Boo Boo has been touring Europe at least a few times each year and most of his music was written and recorded during those tours.  Covid put that ‘tradition’ on hold . But with the help of the internet and Chris Brown in St Louis, the guys from ElectroBluesSociety (Netherlands) together with Boo Boo started to write and record new songs. So far we have released six songs but there is a lot more in the pipeline. 

The new single is released digital and available on all the download and streaming platforms.

review Boo Boo Davis + ElectroBluesSociety from the UK

ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis– You Better Watch Yourself
Boo Boo Davis, born and raised in Drew, Mississippi, and the ElectroBluesSociety (Jan Mittendorp on guitar and “buttons”, Jasper Mortier on bass and drums). create some fine if rather different modern blues and here’s another – it’s not the Little Walter song, by the way. Recorded in Holland and Saint Louis, Missouri, as part of the “Transatlantic Quarantine Sessions”, it features Boo Boo’s strong down-home vocals and wailing blues harp over an electronic-styled backing and some sampled effects. It works too. Many blues lovers might shy away from the electronic backing, but this is really just another example of the music modernising itself. Give it a try…

Something Else reviews new single ElectroBluesSociety + Boo Boo Davis

East St. Louis blues boss Boo Boo Davis continues to spend his quarantine time building a new album with Netherlands-based ElectroBluesSociety (Jan Mittendorp + Jasper Mortier) one track at time. Just the other day, the potent transatlantic collaborators dropped their fourth such Covid track. (We discussed some of the prior singles here and here).

“It’s A Sad Thing” starts with a crunchy-as-fried-chicken guitar riff, and Davis’ swaggering howlin’ and blues harp wailing does the rest. As the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion did with RL Burnside, Boo Boo and the ElectroBluesSociety makes obvious the strong relation between the blues and rawer forms of rock, making the two forms of music sound as one.

As usual, Black and Tan Records is distributing ElectroBluesSociety this hot new track from Boo Boo Davis and the ElectroBluesSociety.

review ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis

Boo Boo Davis

Boo Boo Davis’ rigorous touring schedule got severely curtailed last year when Covid hit, so he fought cabin fever by writing and recording some new tunes. With the help of the guitar/drums outfit from the Netherlands, ElectroBluesSociety, Davis has been conjuring up a few tracks while stuck back home in East St. Louis.

The first of these came out in January, 2021, and we dug the haunting, trance boogie groove of “Secret.” Boo Boo and his Dutch friends did it again with “See A Better Day.”

“See A Better Day” is another perfect blend of Davis’ genuine, American mid-century blues with Jan Mittendorp’s and Jasper Mortier’s studio sensibilities. Everything — from Boo Boo Davis’ voice and harmonic, Mittendorp’s stinging guitar and Mortier’s funky pulse and standup bass — just bellows out from a muddy, analog-ish and smoky haze.

Boo Boo Davis’ latest single comes to us courtesy of Black and Tan Records. Get yourself a download or stream of “See A Better Day” today from iTunes, Spotify or Deezer.

little review SomethingElseReview

here is a little review on the new single from ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis.

Boo Boo Davis is one of the last of old school electric bluesmen but even a deadly virus pandemic can’t slow him down much. Sure, musicians can’t tour right now but they can still compose and record, so Davis has been collaborating long distance from East St. Louis with his longtime touring band ElectroBluesSociety out of The Netherlands. It’s still too early for their follow up to a collection of Chicago blues covers, but they got started and already put out a completed track for the world to enjoy.

“Secret” (Black and Tan Records) is exactly what we’ve come to expect from a Boo Boo Davis song that’s been given the ElectroBluesSociety treatment. Jan Mittendorp (guitar) and Jasper Mortier (drums and bass) lays in a trance boogie groove and does just enough studio manipulation to make it spine-tingling haunting, amplifying the blues feel instead of covering it up. But it’s not like they have to do that much because Boo Boo’s voice can sound ominous on its own.

After a year of upheaval, we’re glad there are some things that didn’t change. Thankfully, Boo Boo Davis never will.

new single ElectroBluesScoeity feat Boo Boo Davis

today we released a new single

B&T 976 – ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis – Secret

Since 1998 we have been touring with Boo Boo Davis in Europe at least 2 or 3 times each year since 1998. Usually, we also wrote and recorded a lot of new music during these tours. At first Covid-19 meant a complete stop to all this. But the music couldn’t be stopped, and we started to exchange musical ideas and send them back and forth between the Netherlands and East St Louis (where Boo Boo is living).  Special thanks go to Chris Brown for helping with this.

So, despite the fact that we cannot be at the same spot right now we are still able to create new music together. This single is the first result of that new way of working, and it is available on all digital platforms

We are working on a lot more songs and we will release them them in the coming months. Stay tuned.
