Live performances vs. DJ sets

 I'm a producer and a performer, yes. But some of my shows will now include a DJ set whether it's for an interlude or for an after-party. Let's mix it up party people!

I felt like Booka Shade spoke my mind when I listened to this interview:
"We never really thought about DJing, people know us for the live playing[...]. We stayed away from DeeJaying for a long time [...] cause we come from producer's backgrounds."

New York - Song by Andy Favre

As I finalize the master for my new album, Quest, I will publish articles about some of the songs.

We start today with a song that I particularly like and that may be released as a single later on, please welcome the "unskipable" number 2 on the track-list, New York!

I composed this song in January 2009 almost by accident. Although I had never been there, I had been dreaming about the big apple and fantasizing about NYC for about a week, when I found myself late at night experimenting with my synthesizer, looking for an original baseline. Something "pop" but that would stand out from the over-used "C-G-A-F" pattern (remember a good example of that is The Police "So lonely, so lonely, so lonely, so lonely..." among thousands of others).

Anyway, as I was trying to get away from this cadence I found a really cool baseline that fitted perfectly the imaginary vision that I had of New York. The words came naturally over the bass. It is the story of a couple who meet in Manhattan. They act as if they were in love but deep inside the passion seems to be lacking. They do not want to get into a passionate love that could be hurtful. Roses are commonly associated with love. Hence the analogy with the camellias: they look like roses but have no thorns; and even if they're not as pure, you can't get stung by them.

Take some time to listen to the track and follow the lyrics:

Andy Favre New York by andyfavre

  
Lyrics: 

She wants to live in New York 
To spread her beauty in New York 
She wants to be in New York 
To spend her youth in New York 

Camellias are in my head
Spikes of love and roses are taken away 
Living our lives just like a play
Performing tonight on Broadway

I want to live in New York 
To spend my youth in New York 
I want to be in New York 
To get my Cam in in New York  

Camellias are in my head
Spikes of love and roses are taken away 
Living our lives just like a play
Performing tonight on Broadway

Camellias are on my way
When I go down the subway
I've got the Cam in my mind
In the yellow cab to Manhattan
Manhattan, Manhattan, Manhattan

It's not a rose in New York 
Go shopping for clothes in New York 
The lovin' is free in New York 
Oui, c'est la vie in New York

Camellias are in my head
Spikes of love and roses are taken away 
Living our lives just like a play
Performing tonight on Broadway

Strange fact: Black Eyed Peas inspired by Jean Michel Jarre on "Imma be"

In the 70's and 80's, Jean Michel Jarre was a pioneer in the electronic and new age genres. In 2009, the pop band Black Eyed Peas releases a top selling album called The E.N.D. Producer Will.I.Am. said it was "greatly influenced by European electronic music".

 After listening carefully to Black Eyed Peas' single "Imma be", two elements of the song seem to be a reference to Jean Michel Jarre's work:

  • A common synth line
In order to better show you what I mean, I made this sample that starts with the Black Eyed Peas track "Imma Be" then slowly fades out to reveal it's synth line. Then, Jean Michel Jarre's track "Magnetic fields 1" comes in and you will notice that the first chords of the song are exactly those of Imma Be's!

Magnetic Imma Be by andyfavre

Do you hear this: same key, same sound, same chords!

  • The Binoculars
This is a verse from "Imma Be" talking about a billion people watching a show with binoculars:
We can't help that we popular
And all these folks want to flock to us
Come to a show and just rock with us
A million plus with binoculars
But it also sounds like a perfect description of Jean Michel Jarre's album art cover "Equinoxe" (1978) isn't it?


If this is not deliberate, it is a strange coincidence... If anyone knows more about this, I'd be happy to hear ;)
