Donna Summer Lives On

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Donna Summer passed on today. The easy thing to say is that the Queen of Disco is dead, that it is an end of an era. But that would be way too simple. Rather, Donna Summer lives on, she lives on in all the new female dance music vocalists. Without a doubt, there would be no house music divas without her. She paved the way.

When her first albums were released she was criticized as being nothing but a moaner. With tracks like “Love to Love You Baby” and “I Feel Love” you could understand the criticism, but those of us that listened to, and played, the “less popular” tracks new she was a great singer. Donna Summer eventually proved the critics wrong when she crossed over to pop. But I will always remember her work with Peter Bellote and Giorgio Moroder.

Maybe someone else would’ve have come along and blazed the trail if Donna Summer had not. We will never know. We do know that Donna Summer DID blaze that trail, and we are all, especially the DJ Culture, better for it.

Curren$y At the Fox Pomona

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

This was the show that just keeps on giving….content, I mean. I was looking through the photos from that night and I realized I had also recorded some video. That night, luckily, I was able to borrow some light from the videographers standing next to me in the pit to record this video. I didn’t physically borrow the light, I just stood really close to them and “borrowed” their light…nah mean? The lighting is decent but I do need to invest in a boom microphone if I want to record more performers. Check it out…it’s my first attempt. Oh, and, I ain’t gonna front, can someone help me with the title of the song he is performing?

DAFT PUNK HELMET + TRON SOUNDRACK

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

Hey, I want one of those. Picked up this video on how this guy makes the Daft Punk helmets at home. This is a very talented guy with a lot of time on his hands. The video runs in fast forward mode through the 17 months that it took to put the helmets together. At the end of the video you can’t help but want to buy one. I think it would save you a lot of time.

Speaking of Daft Punk, they are finishing up the score for the highly anticipated Tron: Legacy film due out in December 2010. The Tron: Legacy, website reported that the duo grew up as fans of the 80’s film and are producing the score, “with extraordinary thought and precision.” You can check out samples of the scores on the official Tron: Legacy website. Or you can watch the latest trailer which debut at Comic-Con 2010 this last weekend. Check out the trailer. You can hear Daft Punk at work. Don’t forget we have some limited tees at the shop. Enjoy the video. (more…)
