8TM October 2015

8TM October 2015

While Dancing to rhythm in music is Tribalism at its core, we’ll focus on it being a sub-genre or integration in what is called Progressive House Music. This percussive driven sound was very popular somewhere between 2000 and 2006 and played by most Prog DJ’s including myself. It was never a sound or genre as such in Prog sets at the time. Progressive House Music have always absorbed other styles in either productions or gigs. I guess that was why it was called ‘Progressive’.

In my opinion that percussive driven sound died off for the most part ever since the rise of Deadmau5. His unique syncopated chords and bass sound set the new norm in what was called Progressive House and Progressive Trance (Which is a contradiction in terms. It does not exist). Also, many prog DJ’s and clubs who used to book Prog DJ’s massively jumped ship to the next big thing which was Electro and then Minimal. So as of 2007 we’d hear less and less percussive elements. Progressive House by now was a Beatport sub-genre based on melodic content and BPM’s for the most part.

So many to choose from

So many to choose from

Let’s get back to the program and see what we have here for the October 2015 edition of 8-Track Mind. The show kicks off with PMT’s Gyromancer. A true Prog classic. Tribal? Well not really. It’s a simple breakbeat with layers of outlandish and alien sound sweeps. But wait… Do I hear a cowbell? Good enough. This is followed by Australian Katai’s Turn Of Time. We can slowly hear the percussion move in. Roaches by Dutch outfit Trancesetters is in its Peace Division remix THE blueprint of Prog Tribal House. A true evergreen in the genre and still being played today. In fact: While writing this, I just received a new remix to review!

A new remix just in as I write this. Crazy!

Some more

Halo Varga’s Future! is on par with Roaches. And it’s in mono in case you wonder what happened to your earbuds. I think it adds to its power. Scumfrog’s remix of Andante by Tribal prog hero Steve Lawler on Bedrock has always been a firm fave of mine and should definitely be included in any Tribal Prog list. Another fave is Blackwatch’ rework of Lenny Kravitz’ Believe In Me. Yes, it’s been on heavy rotation ever since 8TM started in 2007 but it has its place in this mix. Chicane’s rendition of Soothe isn’t strictly Tribal Prog but I love the percussive elements in here and of course the vocals. Just because the focus is on Tribal Progressive House Music shouldn’t mean it would exclude anything else. I never played this way so why start now?

Not in the mix... but could have been

Not in the mix… but could have been

I’ve always used percussion in my own music and it’s no different with Triple Funk from The Inner Sanctuary Sessions. Also in the mix is New York New York of which some would say it also helped define the genre. It’s preceded by Victor Calderone’s The Drive which is total percussive mayhem and the show comes to an end with I Love You by John Creamer and Stephane K. What to say about this one…? It’s an epic piece of Tribal House Music. An adventure. It’s sexy, dark… has all the right elements to bring you back to the dawn of time when we humans would regularly dance around the fire while getting healed and rejuvenated.

I hope you will get healed and rejuvenated when listening to this episode of 8-Track Mind. Enjoy!
