Back To Business

Posted on: September 7, 2007

After 2 months of vacation, I’m back to business, writing shitty posts about good music, don’t think i don’t know that and I’ll try to work that out. And as yo noticed I switched to WordPress because its a bit more comfortable for me.

So what the hell i did those 2 months? Relaxing, relaxing and a bit more relaxing, shit made my year really depressing so I needed that. With all that i got to know some new artists and probably my favorite music label: Ninja Tunes.

Before i start posting music and stuff, just so you know, I’m going to make this blog not strict about music but will combine personal life with music, which was my first intention but somehow it turned to be something else.

So Ninja Tunes, famous label, great artists and exactly everything i was looking for. If you remember, I posted 2 posts about St. Germain and I think you noticed (the ones who actually read this blog) that I damn loved this kind of genre that is how i used to call it once “Electronic Jazz”. Its exactly what it is but people decided to call it Acid Jazz or Future Jazz or even Nu Jazz. So Ninja Tunes is like a paradise for me, it delivers exactly what I like.

Usually Hip-Hop was my thing because it was the closest thing to Jazz and Electronic music. I do like Jazz alone to but sometimes i prefer stuff a bit more beaty and moving, so yeah Jazz is my thing but if I can combine it with electronic so why not? Once i said i don’t like electronic music, well i meant that i don’t like trance and psychedelic music, if so electronic is good and more than that, it spices things up.

So how the hell I got to know Ninja Tunes? Again it starts by visiting sites and accidentally discovering stuff. First i visited the Treebeats blog and there i looked up the blogs the author What It Is like and i saw the blog Ironboblog, What It Is said that if you like Ninja Tunes yo ushould go there. So I said to myself, what the hell is Ninja Tunes, like music the ninjas hear? So i went there and saw the author likes Nu jazz, Hip-Hop, Downtempo and saw some unknown artists posted, and slowly after going deep in it I discovered everything i searched for.

The first one was The Cinematic Orchestra, just bought 2 CD’s of their’s: Ma Fleur and Man With A Movie Camera, I bought those in my vacation in France (my second home). Both of them are a masterpiece, pure fusion of Jazz and Electronic.

But because of my laziness I will post today only one album of their’s, Man With A Movie Camera.
