The new fantastic 4-song EP by the Grooveblaster 'Bop Dead City' is here. Get a hold of yourself as you blast the cosmopolitan instrument grooves. Drop into the seismographic configurations of bebop basslines, funky 70s soul guitar licks, fundamental keyboards of the Rhodes kind, the spaciousness of the spliff girl with superlungs - pooof - and the smoothness of a Saturday afternoon of Philly Soul. Look in a mirror and dig yourself.
The Grooveblaster has been making dance, electronic, down-tempo pop
for more than 10 years. His songs are a unique blend of the many artists, bands
and styles that have influenced him over the years. Influences that range from
Gene Krupa, Anita O'Day, Philly Soul, Massive Attack, Saint Etienne, the Clash,
Steely Dan, 1970s Los Angeles Pop, Dave Brubeck, Kenny Burrell and Brian Wilson
to name just a few.
The Grooveblaster’s CD Out of the Past is now available on iTunes. The 13 song album features vocals by Anji Bee, Yasi Baby and Jana Tarasenko in addition to cosmopolitan groove instrumentals.
Anji Bee is featured on the Philly Soul style ‘Put Some Music On (Good Times)’ and the pop gem ‘Smiling.’ Yasi Baby sings on the the funky grooves ‘Dare’ and ‘Lady Groove’ while Jana Tarasenko is the vocalist on the sultry ‘Stretch Out and Relax’.
The album also includes instrumentals such as the Big Beat throwback ‘You Got That’; downtempo chills ‘Romantic is the New Fantastic,’ ‘Soulville,’ ‘Orange Popsicles and Lemonade’; the bebop of ‘Call Northside 777′; the heavy duty dub of ‘It’s in Her Kiss,’ and a love letter to the future ‘Kiss the Future.’
The Grooveblaster CD, "Cities, Streets & Bebop Nights" features sultry and soulful vocals by Anji Bee (the lovespirals), Yasi Baby (Pacha Massive), Laura Harley and Daca Kopanja and is now digitally available worldwide on Bopaganda Hi-Fi Records.
In addition the album includes cinematic cosmopolitan instrumental grooves
including a tribune to Angie Dickinson and rumba ode to Italian model/actress Benedetta Valanzano. It's all a fine mixture of laid back jazz influenced grooves, funked up beats and soulful vocal samples. A 1970s soundtrack.
A DJ Spinna remix of The Grooveblaster's 'Angie Dickinson' is also available and The Grooveblaster's next CD, 'Out of the Past' will be released in early 2011.
