Protection From Evil
by Ibibio Sound Machine
(51 plays) | (0 fans)

Ibibio Sound Machine is a clash of African and electronic elements. The band claims their sound is inspired in equal measure by the golden era of West African funk and disco, modern post-punk, and electro. The band's name finds influence from Eno Williams' mother, whose native tongue was Ibibio. While Williams was born in London, she spent most of her childhood in Nigeria with the rest of her family. Her mother often recounted numerous folk and children's stories from her own heritage and passed them on to her daughter. Williams took this inspiration and crafted lyrics from these sources and married them to modern themes. https://bit.ly/3uNfbkD

One More Time
by Daft Punk
(82 plays) | (0 fans)

The song was considered an example of French house's frequent use of audio filters, featuring heavily processed auto-tuned vocals. When questioned on the effects, Thomas Bangalter stated, "A lot of people complain about musicians using Auto-Tune. It reminds me of the late '70s when musicians in France tried to ban the synthesizer... What they didn't see was that you could use those tools in a new way instead of just for replacing the instruments that came before." "Criticising the Vocoder is like asking bands in the '60s, 'Why do you use the electric guitar?' It's just a tool... no big deal. Creation is interaction. The healthy thing is that people either loved it or hated it. At least people were not neutral. The worst thing when you make art is for people to not even be moved by it. Love and hate are interesting because it's deep and intense. It's one side of our music that people might be sensitive to and others might not." The album version of the track includes a two-minute breakdown. Bangalter remarked that, "The break is so long it's not even the break. The song itself is the breakdown." https://bit.ly/3i0bcfs
