new wave copy centre zones

New wave revival or pastiche? Speedqueen feat. Dennis Tyfus & Milan Warmoeskerken … the latter is also in Tone Zones alongside Elko Blijweert … who recorded the exquisite Front 242 cover version below!

Kinda reminds me of “Chicks in leather“, btw … Also, how come LiMo’s “Das Ist Der Rhythmus, Mit Dem Du Mit Mußt” (2002) isn’t on YouTube yet?

p. funk all-stars


P. Funk All-Stars, 1983 … precursors, as ever … the full lp wasn’t as great, but this 12″ was & is … I was reminded of this classic by the sensational symbiosis of Stijn & Brzzvll yesterday

2011-01-07: who’s got the funk, mia?

Media_http4bpblogspot_becqa

Can’t believe Stijn wasn’t nominated for the 2011 Mia‘s as funkiest of the year, alongside Brzzvll – though the latter got a well deserved nomination for their and Afreux‘s album artwork! Bit monomanic pop & rock, aren’t they, against the VRT’s mission? As if urban as a category is inimaginable in our de facto multicultural society. Oh well … Here’s two tracks off Stijn’s third “Ten Danz” (Mijn Label 2010) – “WUGDAI” has Andrew “Chi” Claes of Brzzvll on sax and “Weten” Fabergé of Dutch rappers de Jeugd van Tegenwoordig – ànd the 1972 original of a track which Brzzvll often cover live … by Archie Shepp.

Bonus : a great story about a so-so “funk” record – musically mere EWF cloning, imho …
