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.
at MixCloud you’ll find more the 20 of my ElectroBlues DJ Sets:
Since March 2011 he did sets at FUSION FESTIVAL and MEERESRAUSCH (Germany), SZIGET (Hungary), NORTH SEA JAZZ (Holland), FESTIVAL DRANOUTER (Belgium) and COGNAC BLUES PASSIONS (France). Plus clubs in Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, France, Turkey and Italy.
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
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.
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 succesful project they did several other projects and these tracks will be released individually on BLu ACiD Records, a subsidiary label of Black and Tan.
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.
