French

I was hanging out with some friends the other week and we came up with the idea of a French style Twisted Groove show. This show contains classic old and very modern contemporary French artist. I think it blends together nicely.

Dream Pop


This weeks Twisted Groove was sparked by the most recent tour of Dean & Britta (of Luna fame). They have composed music for and are touring with Screen Tests films of Andy Warhol. Someone once called Luna’s music Dream Pop which I think is a fitting description. So this weeks show tries to blend other artist that might fall into the Dream Pop category. Regrettably the second set recording was stopped short by yet another computer glitch. When I can find the time I would like to recreate the second set.

Muslimgauze

I felt like mixing it up this week so this weeks Twisted Groove show is quit varied. While I was in San Francisco a while back I bought the then newest Muslimgauze release Armsbazzar. Recordings of his from 1994-1997. His sound is raw and powerful. I then moved to some smoother electronic music like M83, Plaid and DNTEL. Then I get all euro with some French feeling music like Bertrand and Alif Tree. Then I move into some experimental sounds of Nick Forte. Then into some Kriedler, KJ Sawka and then back to Muslimgauze. Ending out the eve with Aphex Twin, Mouse on Mars and Future Sound of London. Quite a varied tour around the electronic music genre.

Here is a live set I did for Local iQ Magazine Mixology at the Monta Vista Fire Station Pub in Nob Hill.  It is a long and varied set.  Starting out loungey and getting more dancey as it goes and there is even a bit of R&R thrown in.  It’s a very fun set…
