WALTER MERCADO talking about 2013 the year of the BLACK SNAKE
If you think a woman in a tan vinyl bra and underwear, grabbing her crotch and grinding up on a dance partner is raunchy, trashy, and offensive but you don’t think her dance partner is raunchy, trashy, or offensive as he sings a song about “blurred” lines of consent and…

Oblique Strategies Card: “Spectrum Analysis”
Equipment Used: “Logic as my master clock and recording deck; an MPC2000 as MIDI Sequencer and beat programmer; and a TR-707,
KPR-77, DX-7, two Slim Phattys, MF-104M Analog Delay, MF-105M MIDI MuRF and MF-102 Ring Modulator for sounds and processing”
The Story Behind the Song: “I look at music very physically, from constructing patches of gear that function like living organisms to creating sounds that impact the body, with a strong element of spontaneity. This track was partly about getting pumped up, like the soundtrack for a workout montage in a movie like Rocky. Only it’s a holistic workout that includes spiritual and physical fitness. Maybe that relates to the card in how ‘Spectrum Analysis’ is like going over the whole system and tuning it up. I found interesting ways to use the new Moog gear, too, playing the knobs live and thinking of ways to use each piece that might not be the standard “set and forget” approach. Keeping everything moving like that made each sound feel alive, like they’re all getting together and doing their thing.”
track of today for me after rally in front of what used to be st vincents hospital, now luxury condos- whose streets??? OUR STREETS
Prince Feat. Marva King - “U’re Still the 1” (Shania Twain Cover Demo, 1997)
Ripping old mix CDs on to my laptop I found this Napster-era cover, briefly available as a RealPlayer stream on Prince’s website.
Like his covers of "One of Us" and "I Can’t Make U Love Me" off 1996’s Emanicpation, the arrangement isn’t earth-shattering but the solo at 2:15 is terrific, plus you could not be listening to Prince cover Shania Twain, so y’know
sneaky shania loving PRINCE!
