new single ElectroBluesSociety

Today we released a new single by ElectroBluesSociety on KuvVer Records

KR 604 – ElectroBluesSociety feat Michel Peters – I Got My Mojo Workin

ElectroBluesSociety = Jasper Mortier and Jan Mittendorp; two guys and a bunch of junk with a broad taste and an open mind mixing the old with the new.

Modern technologies combined with 30+ years of live stage experience in the European blues / roots music scene. This time they took a classic blues song and invited Michel Peters for the vocals.

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

review for ElectroBluesSociety from the UK

Here a short review by Norman Darwen that was published in BLUES IN THE SOUTH (UK):

B&T 969 – ElectroBluesSociety feat Jan Hidding – All The Way Down

Another download single from this Dutch outfit with singer Jan Hidding. ‘All The Way Down’ runs to four and a half minutes, with Jan’s big, deep voice backed by a riffing guitar, bass, drums, blues harp and occasional electronic noises. The song itself is a soulful, blues ballad, a little reminiscent of the mid-60s but certainly contemporary, though the electronics add to the track rather than detract from it. Do try to give it a listen!

nice little review for new single ElectroBluesSociety

Here are some nice words from BEEHIVE CANDY on the new single from ElectroBluesSociety:

We have featured ElectroBluesSociety just once before back in December 2016. I think it fair to say that the second feature has been worth the wait. ‘All The Way Down’ has the deep rich vocals of Jan Hidding where his natural blues singing is fabulous, the backing music is stripped back with a potent blues guitar and drums and just a small glimpse of electro sounds.

review new single ElectroBluesSociety on BluesMagazine.nl

Dat de blues tegenwoordig ook, deels, via elektronische wijze tot je kan komen wordt hier bewezen door het Hollandse duo ElectroBluesSociety. Bestaand uit de ervaren blues rotten Jasper Mortier (drums, bas), die o.a. speelde bij Preston Shannon, Melvin Taylor en Monti Amundsen, en Jan Mittendorp (gitaar, electronica), die speelde bij o.a. Boo Boo Davis, Percy Strother en Roscoe Chenier. Op deze digitale single wordt het duo bijgestaan door Cuban Heels zanger Jan Hidding. De elektronica vind je in dit nummer voornamelijk terug in samples en elektro ritmes. Het nummer opent met de lome bas van Jasper Mortier met gesampelde (?) keyboards en zacht bonkend elektroritme. De galmende zang van Jan Hidding is  daarna door het nummer heen te vinden in gesampelde vorm. Het nummer ontwikkelt zich langzaam tot een loom funky bluesnummer waarin de broeierige gitaar voor een haast swamprock gevoel zorgt. Een nummer met een hypnotiserend geluid dat zeker naar meer doet smaken. Deze digitale single is een fraai voorbeeld van een samenwerking tussen de blues en elektronica. Met een heel apart en pakkend resultaat als gevolg. Hopelijk volgt er binnenkort een volledig album en ik ben ook benieuwd of we dit duo ook ooit live als een complete band te zien gaan krijgen.

review for ElectroBluesSociety from the UK

ElectroBluesSociety feat Jan Hidding – Rosie (Black & Tan B&T 967)

Jan Hidding is singer with the long-standing Europe an garage blues group The Cuban Heels, here teamed up with the Dutch Black & Tan’s label’s house band (Jasper Mortier on drums and bass and label boss Jan Mittendorp on guitars and effects) for a modern recording of “Rosie”, the prison song recorded by Alan Lomax. The results are nicely gritty, rootsy dance music; but don’t let that last phrase put you off, there’s definitely more than a trace of UK 60s R’n’B. Very interesting indeed…

SoulAndJazzAndFunk.com reviews new single ElectroBluesSociety

GOIN’ IN CIRCLES ………

The traditional hymn ‘Will The Circle Be Unbroken’ is one of Gospel’s most recorded songs. Soul folk will most probably know and cherish the haunting rendition from the Staple Singers. An equally haunting version was cut by bluesman ROSCOE CHENIER in 2006. His acaplla take was recorded for Black and Tan Records. It was, in fact, the Louisiana born Chenier’s last recording (he died in 2013) and amongst the gospel and blues community it has acquired an almost mythical status. The track has just been reissued by Black and Tan, but for the release they’ve added musical backing from Dutch band, ElectroBluesSociety, the sparseness of which manages to enhance the ethereal quality of Chenier’s original vocal. The single is out now.
