our new single

Today we released our new single on Black and Tan Records

B&T 966 – Will The Circle be Unbroken – ElectroBluesSociety feat Roscoe Chenier

The original acapella recording of this old gospel tune was done by Roscoe Chenier and released on Black and Tan Records in 2006. On this single we added a new musical background to Roscoe’s voice. Jan had the luck to work with Roscoe on several releases and tours in Europe from 1993 on and he certainly was one of the nicest guys to work with. Unfortunately Roscoe died (far too soon) in February 2013.

The track is released on Black and Tan Records and will be digital only. This means it will be available on all the download and streaming platforms. Here are the links to a few popular ones.

review on BluesZine.nl

De ElectroBluesSociety is een stel heren die elektronica mengen met het geluid van echte instrumenten. Deze heren zijn Jasper Mortier (bas, drums) en Jan Mittendorp (gitaar, elektronica). Beiden hebben ruime ervaring in de blues en hebben het podium gedeeld met mensen als Preston Shannon, Philip Walker, Paul Oscher, Boo Boo Davis en Byther Smith om er maar een paar te noemen. In mei doken zij de studio in met harmonicavirtuoos Kim Snelten en het resultaat hiervan is nu als single “Duck” verkrijgbaar. Het is een instrumentaal nummer dat duidelijk bouwt op elektronica. Niets voor bluespuristen, zou je zeggen. Maar in dit geval wordt het goed ingezet en is het als een van de gebruikte instrumenten hoorbaar. Het is een lekker swingend nummer, waarbij vooral de harmonica van Snelten indruk maakt.

new track & video

Last week we recorded a new track in our rehearsal room (both audio and video). This will give you an impression on how our project sounds and how it looks. For the first time we are using the connection between the audio and the video. It is a first attempt but the possibilities are endless and we very eager to use and improve this new opportunity. It can only get better : – )

The track is based on an old recording of Soul Of A Man by Blind Willie Johnson but you will also hear some Led Zeppelin
