I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Black and Tan artist: miX&dorp - Black and Tan Edits - New Release Review

This is a first for be reviewing a contemporary mix of traditional blues artists by a contemporary artist. Here's how the artist describes their work..."The blues used to be party music; now it can be played again at the hippest modern parties, festival and clubs ..…. and still feel down home".

It's hard to get you head around as you read it...but just listen to it. It is really solid sounding with the "real blues" deeply embedded and with an overmix of rhythms to make the music sound "new".

miX&dorp edits/remixes tracks that were originally released on Black and Tan Records in the past 14 years. It is a really refreshing look at the blues and I think one which will bring a broader audience to original blues music. Don't think of it as someone changing our "real blues"... think of how you found the "real Blues"... this is a new gateway!

If you're looking for something fresh but still want to listen to the delta sound... check this out. I really like it!
