Bacon Fat Louis remixed by miXendorp

today we released

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.

The new track is available on all download and streaming platforms.https://baconfatlouis.nl/

review miXendorp in Blues in Britain

miXendorp – bluestronica EP nr 1

Ah, but is it blues??
Shortly after I “discovered” the blues back in the day via Mayall, Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac etc. I also got interested in electronic sounds c/o Tangerine Dream and similar bands. The two streams of music have been constants in my life since (among many others) to the point where now I make music it often starts with an ambient drone and adds bluesy slide. So the title of this alongside a cover photo of a complex modular synthesizer system piqued my interest. It’s a 3 track instrumental cd which he describes as “xperimental trance electro blues”. ‘Rimzi’ opens with blues harmonica wailing over I assume synth generated rhythm track with an almost North Mississippi Hill Country feel. Some nice guitar/slide thrown into the mix. ‘Precedence’ keeps the Hill Country vibe, opening with guitar then adding the beats, some nice overdriven guitar sounds in there as well. ‘SwingStraight’ opens with boogie bass and guitar sounds overlaid with vocal effects for an almost “standard” 12 bar. A review elsewhere has said “the down home qualities of the source material jostle intriguingly with the superimposed urban beats”, and I guess that describes it well. Not too much information available about miXendorp, so it’s difficult to know how much is live instruments and how much is electronically manipulated samples. Sounds good though. If you’re up for trance like blues, and not too sniffy about whether the sounds are live or electronically produced have a listen. Is it blues then? Well it sounds pretty bluesy and the ep has garnered lots of airplay on blues programs around the UK and Europe, so that sounds like a yes. Available from the usual digital platforms.

review new miXendorp EP

Also known as Jan Mittendorp, one-half of the ElectroBluesSociety, Mixendorp (or DJ MiXendorp) spins blues licks into thick, tasty electronic bangers. The cohesion is so thick that there’s no way to separate one from the other.

And yes, there are Boo Boo Davis samples rambling through here. I suppose this could be called an EBS side project, but it’s simply a slinkier, more electronic version. Jasper Mortimer’s bass and percussion is missing (and those bounding bass lines are an obvious loss), but it’s also interesting hearing one side of the EBS conversation.

A side that is fully-rooted in the blues and electronic music. If you cannot imagine how blues-influenced music could fit in on a club floor, about ten seconds of this will be all the convincing you need.

Just as addictive and accessible as any EBS set. Some people know how to mold music into beautiful new forms. And some us that as a launching pad for something transcendent. Four tracks are hardly enough, but they instill a wonder that will glow for an eon or two.

new remix Bacon Fat Louis by miXendorp

today we released:

B&T 996 – My Demands (remix) – Bacon Fat Louis & miXendorp

Recently the guys from BACON FAT LOUIS send a few tracks to miXendorp and asked him to do his magic to them. Here is the first result.

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 with that remixed by miXendorp and his bluestronica and electro blues.

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