Geheel toevallig stootte ik op deze verzamelaar van bluesmuziek die een electrobehandeling kreeg. Electro blues tracks, vol. 4 is blijkbaar al het vierde deel en het smaakt alvast naar meer. De bluesnummers worden aangeleverd door artiesten als Boo Boo Davis, Big George Jackson, Harrison Kennedy en anderen, allen voor mij onbekend. Ook de remixers van dienst (ElectroBluesSociety, miXendorp,…) zijn voor mij nieuwe namen. Maar van elk van hen denk ik: “hm, die moet ik nog eens verder beluisteren”. Ze geven de soms rauwe bluestracks (zoals I’m so tired) een heel moderne feel en vibe en tillen de nummers zo de eenentwintigste eeuw in. Dit compilatie-album is werkelijk een ontdekking én een aanrader.
today we released this new single
B&T 965 – Harrison Kennedy & miXendorp – Bob Lo Island (remix)
Best known as the lead vocalist of the Chairmen of the Board Harrison Kennedy was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, before moving to Detroit to join up with this group that was started as part of the new Holland-Dozier-Holland label Invictus / Hot Wax. In the mid-’70s, Kennedy left the group and struck out on a solo career. Over the years he has been able to pull from styles as varied as funk, soul, R&B, folk, rock, and gospel. In 2008, Kennedy was nominated for Best Blues Recording in Canada’s Juno Awards. Here is a new miXendorp remix of one of his songs. The original recording of this song was only voice and percussion and it was released by Harrison on Black and Tan Records in 2005.
The track is released digital only and available on all the download and streaming platforms. Here are the links to a few popular ones:

B&T 963 – Instinctively Wrong (remix) – Jimmy Reiter & miXendorp
Jimmy Reiter is a guitarist, singer and convincing songwriter, firmly rooted in the tradition of Blues and R&B.

In 2011 Jimmy started working under his won name and so far he released two albums. Last month Jimmy and his band received the German Blues Award for Best Band of 2017.

One of the miXendorp remixes that we 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. It is his 4th compilation in this series, focusing on Electro Blues this round.
The cover is made by Khalil Michot, another one of our Speakeasy co-founders.
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.
Today we released a new track:

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
