Remember Me
by The Blueboy
(8 plays) | (0 fans)

“Remember Me” is the 1997 hit from Scottish DJ Alexis “Lex” Blackmore under his stage name “Blue Boy”. The song is built around a 1969 track titled “Woman of the Ghetto” by Marlena Shaw. "Remember me? I'm the one who had your babies," in reference to African-American maids raising white children for little pay, came from a live version, whereas the "ging, gi-gi-gi-gi-ging..." sample repeated throughout the song is the scat portion of the original song's refrain.

"The album’s first and most striking single, ‘Lloyd, I’m Ready To Be Heartbroken’ perfectly encapsulates their charm and endearing romanticism. Named as a response to the last song on Lloyd Cole & The Commotions’ 80s jangle pop masterpiece, Rattlesnakes, it’s an indie nerd’s dream. From the opening of a lone organ, it suddenly bursts into life with a Motown influence that was a new addition to their more expansive sound.": https://bit.ly/3BmIJqy

Turnmills
by Maribou State
(90 plays) | (0 fans)

In 1990s London, rave was king of the night, and Turnmill was the first club to get a 24-hour operation license. The warehouse operation became a must-attend hotspot for fashionable nightcrawlers of the dancing kind. In 2008, Turnmill was closed for good. Its lease had expired and would not be renewed. The warehouse was destroyed and turned into an office building, but its legacy lives on in the hearts of London’s artists and musicians, including Maribou State‘s Chris Davids and Liam Ivory.: https://www.billboard.com/music/music-news/maribou-state-turnmills-club-listen-8453998/

Recognize those bongos? Yes, the main beat is from Incredible Bongo Band's "Last Bongo in Belgium." The piano chord played in the background throughout is from Pink Floyd’s "Time," from the "Dark Side of the Moon" album. It also samples Mountain's "Mississippi Queen."

The Black Angels' new album came out last Friday! The Velvet Underground song ‘I’ll Be Your Mirror’ – that’s what every Black Angels album has been about,” says vocalist/bassist Alex Maas. “You can’t work out your struggles unless you bring them to the forefront and think about them. If we can all think about them, maybe we can help save ourselves.”" Go here to purchase the album: https://blackangels.bandcamp.com/album/wilderness-of-mirrors
