US review new single ElectroBluesSociety & Boo Boo Davis

this is what EastPortlandBlog wrote about the new single

Smokestack Lightnin – ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis

This is so beautiful it hurts. This is live Chicago blues. I’m thirty years past Chicago and I’d swear I rode the Englewoood-Howard B Train tonight, shared a bottle of Christian Brothers on the down low and got clotheslined by “the Hawk” wind when I transferred for the Ravenswood line. Heaven on a bone, Smiffy’s Ribs, testifyin’ for the blues, the signal’s coming in strong, someone got set free tonight.

new single ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis

released today on KuvVer Records:

KR 605 – ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis – Tell Me

For this recording session ElectroBluesSociety went back to basics and teamed up with Mississippi blues man Boo Boo Davis. Together they revisited classic Chicago blues. For Boo Boo this was also a trip down to memory lane all these songs were regulars in the Davis Brothers Band repertoire during the 18 years that they were the weekend house band in Tabby’s Red Room, a famous juke joint in East St Louis.

They recorded seven songs and they will be released as individual singles during the coming months. We start of with a classic Howlin Wolf song.

Digital only and available on all platforms

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.
