The Blac Swan


So, how about some funky disco vibes then? Swim and Fly on the dance floor to the tunes of this week’s featured band : ‘The Blac Swan’ from NY, USA. According to their soundcloud description, ‘They make modern classics’. Don’t go in expecting Ludwig Van and you won’t be disappointed would be my 2 cents.

A little more detail about them: It’s been about 2 years since they started out. Until now they’d been doing remixes and djing while working on their original songs, and they now have their debut EP released. It’s title is We Flyin’. As we are in the mood for equality today (as some feisty Czech woman who was crowned Miss Earth today might want for the world), we would include our favourite original and favourite remix from the bunch:

The Blac Swan have achieved considerable success in a short while; We Flyin’ had been ranked #1 on Nu Disco Release Chart for 1 week and #14 on overall Beatport’s album Release Chart. If you like what you hear head over to their soundcloud page: http://soundcloud.com/theblacswan and you can buy their tracks on Beatport. Enjoy the funky journey!

Change


Arguably, this is my favourite view of the Berliner Dom! However, as the authorities have decided to re-create a palace, that was destroyed in the communist era, this view will remain like this for a limited time only. For better or worse, things change and I can only hope it is an improvement like the re-edit of the David Bowie track Fame by The Apple Scruffs. It retains its old wax/soul/funky feel but the sound has simply been cleaned out to make it sound crisper. It can also be downloaded for free, but it is a big sized .wav file (which is why hypem won’t pick this track from my blog). Anyways, to positive changes:
