Barefoot

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on November 27, 2009 by thezombiesnakecharmer

Recently, I was reading an article about the music innovations in the beginning of the 21st century. And one of the conclusions they were making was that no new significative music style had emerged during this period… One might disagree about this since we can name grime and dubstep in UK for example (dubstep, as we all know, is now a worldwide movement). But yeah,… it came from a mixture of dub, drum & bass, and 2step so not really a new style if you take it this way. On the other hand it is almost impossible to create a new musical genre in the 21st century. Since all seems to have already been made, the only thing to do is recycle and combine different styles… Again, this has been made too (many times). But by creating such new sub-genres you create new codes who will set the basics for any track of the genre (for instance all the dubstep tracks are 140bpm).

That’s why I find the concept of “barefoot” so interesting and innovating. Barefoot is a new musical style with dub, grime, drum&bass, dancehall,… elements but combined without tempo restrictions nor particular codes to respect. Stereotyp and the Crunchtime crew from Vienna theorized this new genre and provided us the first barefoot tunes. Some also call it post-dancehall but imo, that gives an idea of what to expect. With barefoot you can expect the unexpected and that’s why it’s so refreshing.

Check some barefoot tunes and mix:

While everyone is celebrating the fall of the Berlin wall today i wanted to talk about another major event which happened in Berlin…

I name: the invention of the döner kebab, this Turkish meal known by many (especially after long nights out), but often under different names. Indeed the Turkish name is döner kebab and means rotating grilled meat, but in France they call it a “grec” (French readers can read here why) and in Belgium I noticed some places where they call it döner but it’s quite rare, the dürüm usually replaces it.

Although the origins of this dish come from the Ottoman empire in the XVII th century, it is said that it was “recreated” in Kreuzberg (district of Ost-Berlin) in 1971. And it was in a restaurant called Hasir. Some of you might recognize that name thanks to Modeselektor’s homage on their album Hello Mom.

Speaking of them, I realized that I forgot to share their Resident Advisor podcast which I found amazing and so inspirational. So here is it:
