Today we release a new single

B&T 966 – Will The Circle be Unbroken – ElectroBluesSociety feat Roscoe Chenier

The original acapella recording of this old gospel tune was done by Roscoe Chenier and released by us in 2006. On this brand new release ElectroBluesSociety adds a musical background to Roscoe’s voice. We had the luck to work with Roscoe on several releases and tours in Europe from 1993 on and he was one of the nicest guys to work with. Unfortunately Roscoe died (far too soon) in February 2013.

review for Electro Blues Compilation

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:

review single ElectroBluesSociety on BluesZine.nl

De ElectroBluesSociety is een stel heren die elektronica mengen met het geluid van echte instrumenten. Deze heren zijn Jasper Mortier (bas, drums) en Jan Mittendorp (gitaar, elektronica). Beiden hebben ruime ervaring in de blues en hebben het podium gedeeld met mensen als Preston Shannon, Philip Walker, Paul Oscher, Boo Boo Davis en Byther Smith om er maar een paar te noemen. In mei doken zij de studio in met harmonicavirtuoos Kim Snelten en het resultaat hiervan is nu als single “Duck” verkrijgbaar. Het is een instrumentaal nummer dat duidelijk bouwt op elektronica. Niets voor bluespuristen, zou je zeggen. Maar in dit geval wordt het goed ingezet en is het als een van de gebruikte instrumenten hoorbaar. Het is een lekker swingend nummer, waarbij vooral de harmonica van Snelten indruk maakt.

review new single ElectroBluesSociety

Here is what TUNED UP wrote about the new single of ElectroBluesSociety feat Kim Snelten (and we take the aging hippies as a compliment 🙂 ) :

If you’re in the mood for something easy listening but not sleep-inducing, this song hits the spot. I’m not particularly into jam bands but for some reason I got lucky this afternoon when clicking through promo emails. This was the first song in a unread Tuned Up email that popped up, and it’s suiting my Saturday afternoon summer coffee shop mood perfectly. I think this band should play Columbus’ ComFest in the future. All the aging hippies and young guns will love it.
