Get ready for DJ Godfather's 44 track long play release, "Electro Beats for Freaks", to now come alive over the next six months on a series of releases on Godfather's own Databass.
In a recent interview, DJ Godfather spoke about why he mixed the 44 tracks together on "Electro Beats for Freaks". He said that: “I made the album a continuous mix on purpose. You can skip through the songs but the beginning and ends of the track mix into each other. I did that so it will be harder for other DJ's to play the tracks at first. This album will be kind of like a sampler to DJ's, and a full album to non-DJs that just want to listen to the music. For me, it was another way to get all of the attention from the tracks on one project".
This first offering, "Show Some Respect", features four upbeat Electro shakers. Out on vinyl, digital and streaming, Side A has two crisp Electro grooves, starting with the title track "Show Some Respect", that sets the Detroit vibe right off the mark with its grindy bassline, sharp snares, rolling toms, and effected larger than life vocals. "Sunday Morning Spliff" finishes up Side A with some pipes spread over a bed of piano, high end keys, and a classic rhythm bass that completes this first side like a, well, a Sunday morning spliff finishes a Saturday night out with the crew!
Side B's "These Strippers", features Dan Diamond sharing his "X-rated" ruminations about how "These Strippers are going to get me in trouble". That's just terrible to hear for poor Dan, so if that track's too hot for the vibe, throw on the instrumental that is just as lively and upbeat as the 4x4 NSFW vocal cut.
