DANISH BREAKS N BEATS
DANISH GROOVES BOTH SAMPLE-WISE, DANCEFLOOR-WISE OR WHATEVER....
Celebrating the new year dontfakethebreaks gives you 12 examples of Danish releases containing either sample material, funky tracks or other related sounds. I am only going to write a few lines about each release to keep focus on the music. Some are pretty wellknown in the danish digger community but I hope I will hit just one or two that people dont know yet. All are picks from the fleemarkets around Denmark..... Here goes......
IF PLAYER DONT APPEAR -RELOAD PAGE!!!
IF PLAYER DONT APPEAR -RELOAD PAGE!!!
The Jazz Dancer "in the classroom" LP. released on Fona F 503.
This is a drums only LP - the only danish release of that kind I know of. Bjarne Rostvold and Perry Knudsen have some great percussion/drum sessions on 9 tracks on this one. There are three "jazz dancer" volumes, the two others being more like straight up jazz. This is the most wanted and the rarest to my knowledge.
listen to my favorite beat-track on the LP!!
"Livet er nu/Der skal en masse sjov til"
Released in 1966 on octav records OKS 1003.
Annisette is best known for her being a member of Savage Rose which was a danish prog-rock group in the 70s.
This one is a Dancefloor killer!!!! "livet er nu" is a heavy "yeah yeah" soul track which always turn heads on the dancefloor.
Jørn Grauengård "Vintage 73" LP
released in 1988 on Salut records SALP 8426.
Jørn Grauengård is one of the big names in danish jazz, begining his career in the late 40s I think.
This is studio recordings made in 73-74 when he and his orchestra was rehersing for a job at the Artilleribar at hotel Scandinavia in 73. These sessions was released as late as 1988. Many has slept on this, including myself, because of the cheesy-looking cover and mainly because of the release year. But dont be mistaken - this is FUNKY!!!! .... or at least two or three tracks are....
Røde Mor "tag hvad der er dit" LP.
Released in 1972 on Demos records Demos 10.
Røde Mor - a famous political/art/music group or movement. I discovered a tiny break on this one.
I have edited the break just for you to get a feelin of it. Not one of the best breaks outthere but its there!!!
Rudolph S/T LP
- released in 1976 on polydor 2380 048.
MOOG MADNESS on the track
"Helge og Ebba"!!!
Im pretty sure not many knows about this.
Dont know anything about the artist.
Album consits of other Jazzrock tracks but not quite the same as "Helge og Ebba"
Check the audioclip!!
AND THANK YOU UPSKIBOO -FOR LETTING ME KNOW!!!!!
"do it again just a little bit slower/your good girls gonna go bad"
released in 1967 on Ring Records R 5000.
The Clan was a group out of Copenhagen, founded by producer Jimmy Campbell in 67 in an attempt to create a Danish supergroup. They disbanded after a few months with only two single releases.
This one contains the great RnB/beat track
"your good girls gonna go bad" which is an uptempo dancemover!!! -in my opinion also pretty slept on....
Joy "syng for herren" LP
-released in 1979 on Stuk records STUK 439.
BREAKS BREAKS BREAKS!!!!!
Obscure little christian modern gospel LP with a nice little breakintro on one of the tracks.
Nils Tuxen is among the members of the group..
Bent Jacobsen -bøssernes befrielsesfront
- released in 1975 on Demos records Demos24. HOMO-FUNK!!!!!!
Translated the title of this LP means GAY.
Great great LP with some, I believe, at the time unheard of gay-issues, expressed on 13 tracks. I think this was the first time a gay-release was ever seen in Denmark.
featured here is the monster funky "ENGANGSKNALD" (onenightstand)
which is an uptempo funkstomper!!!!
Many famous musicians is featured on this release : among others Anders Koppel, Jens Rugsted, Nils Tuxen and Kaspar Winding.
Splask S/T LP
- released in 78 on Respons records REELP 101.
This album is mostly wanted for the cover version of a KOOL AND THE GANG´s "funky stuff" -Here called
"der for lidt der fedt"
but the one for me is the heavy heavy :
"hymne til kroppen"
which is a slow bluesrock groover!!! check it out!!!
Børn og unge fra Mellervangskolen, Aalborg "sådan en Fredag" LP
-released IN 1979 on STUK records STUK 442.
BREAKS BREAKS BREAKS BREAKS!!!!!
children and young people from a school called Mellervangskolen. Two cool drum-intros on this one. I have NO idea about the people on this one!!!!!....
Burnin red ivanhoe "w.w.w." LP
-released in 1971 on Sonet records SLPS 1530.
Their records are in demand worldwide and are known as one of the best ProgRock groups out of Denmark.
On this one we have two grooves which I think could be interesting for beatmakers to chop up or at least do something with it.
"Shadow-ish" Trippy sounds........
judge for yourself.
Daimi "da verden blev væk" LP
- released in 1976 on Sonet records SLP 1727.
Daimi is a wellknown danish actor and singer and has on this release a little naughty tune called "kvinden med de store brysters sang"
(the song of the woman with the big breasts)..... funny little tune with somewhat of a discofunky edge to it.
THERE YOU HAVE IT. - I AM NOT SAYING THAT THESE ARE THE TOP 12 BREAKS OR GROOVES FROM DENMARK, BUT SIMPLY GIVING SOME EXAMPLES OF THE FUNK, BREAKS OR GROOVES RELEASED IN DENMARK.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
