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.

Als je, zoals wij hier bij Rootstime, vaak naar muziek luistert en geregeld iets nieuws te horen krijgt, gebeurt het al wel eens dat je bij een plaat blijft hangen. Meer dan eens s gaat het dan om een cd wholesale NBA jerseys die echt goed is en die je, na een tijdje, nog steeds geregeld opzet. Cd’s die nog een stap verder gaan zijn heel dun gezaaid, maar er zijn bepaalde schijfjes die zo y goed zijn dat ze je al de rest even doen vergeten en die er Davis om smeken om constant gedraaid te worden. “OldSkool” van Boo Boo Davis is er zo eentje. Al is Boo Boo Davis beslist geen nieuwe artiest, want Richard hij is waarschijnlijk een van de laatste mannen die kunnen navertellen hoe het harde leven in het Mississippi van de jaren ’30 en ’40 was.

A unique line-up performing original songs. Raw and simple with a deep love for American Roots Music. These musicians have broad taste and an open mind, so a lot of musical influences come through.
grew up in Dallas, Texas. As a little girl, Dede would sing along to whatever she could find, but it was the rawness of Blues and Gospel that shaped her talent the most. Classically trained on the violin, it was always clear that her voice was her first instrument. Moving to Austin, Texas, she earned a degree in Philosophy, then followed her heart and let the music lead. In Austin, Dede began singing professionally and has shared the stage with Clarence Gatemouth Brown, Leon Russell, Tommy Shannon, and Harry Belafonte. Performing in the USA and all over Europe, Dede Priest continues to forge ahead with successful shows

Mischa den Haring and Jan Mittendorp; two Dutch musicians/producers joined forces in this new production unit. Both of them have more then 25 years of live stage experience and they combine that with 2014 recording and production techniques. Like moonshine, the music was slow brewed in seclusion during all-night-and-day marathons attended only by the two members and the ghosts of the past, who were eager to have their voices echo into the modern world. Preserving the power and originality of american roots music but at the same time not excluding influences from any other musical styles nor any technology that is available today. In February 2014 they released their first tracks on Black and Tan Records and April 2014 their first album production: a new BOO BOO DAVIS release (What Kind Of Shit Is This?) After this succesfull project they did several other projects and new tracks will be released regularly. The tracks are available at all stream and download sites and below you find a list of releases with the corresponding links to itunes and spotify.
Expect no ‚music for the millions’ but an original and eclectic mix of blues with jazz, world, funk, techno and all kind of other great music with a beat. The main part of the music are miXendorp’s own remixes of al kind of bluesy tracks. On top of that he adds some great remixes from colleague DJ’s plus a variety of samples. But since talking about music doesn’t make much sense I suggest you just listen.

The perfect music before and after concerts and also between bands on festivals. He brings his own DJ equipment, doesn’t need much space and can set up within 5 minutes.
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
