Housy Grooves – Serious Old Skewl LIVE Groove

I think this is one of my favorite long jams of all times. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I share with you “Housy Grooves”, the marvelous work of Dr. H. P. Winkler. There are a number of kewl things about it. First being is that it is free and available at The Internet Archive. Heck, they even have embed code for you to put a player up with it. Now how kewl is that?

Second, is that it is part of the new media by being on the Stromklang Net Label. Now don’t get me wrong, CDs have their place, for me, if they are signed by the artists. Otherwise, they are just becoming coasters, marred with concentric rings of coffee and coke.

Next thing on the list of kewlness. This IS old skewl, recorded LIVE in 1994 and, according to the info at Internet Archive, was recorded and performed using the following:

Roland R-8(Human Rhythem Composer), Roland JX-8P,Moog-Prodigy, Korg-Workstation X3, Dynacord 16-Channel-Mixer, Alesis Midiverb II, TEAC 2-Channel-Recorder

Seriously youngin’s, before computers you had to use that stuff to make music. And, ZOMG! some of it was not even stereo! No, you couldn’t always play chords on all keyboards either. I wonder how many even know what a Moog is these days?

And my favorite thing about this particular track is that every time I pop it up and share it somewhere people are like “that is soooo kewl”. It is a solid example of how composition and performance can be timeless. Enjoy the groove!
