Dario Rossi

All is not quite well.

The tolerance in the USA is grim. The political fervour in the UK is grim. The content of my thesis is grim. The content of my thesis is getting increasingly grim. There will be hope and lightness. It might just take some time to reappear.

To take the edge of the bleak for now is someone who amazes me. Reminds me that all expectations can be confounded in a positive way. Dario Rossi is a drummer. A travelling, busking percussionist. The first time I saw a video featuring him it had gone viral amongst muso friends and I spent the rest of that day tracking down who was the man in the video. Several years on this still feels me with delight, joy and gives me goosebumps of excitement.

Why? Because Dario Rossi does techno. Analogue techno.

And it will blow your mind!

A longer set.

I am fixated.

With RuPaul.

Mainly the Drag Race and this track.

May I call you Jiggly?

Earth, Wind & Fire

I woke up this morning with September by Earth, Wind & Fire stuck in my head. So I played it whilst eating toast and dancing around the kitchen.

Pretty good way to start the day, I reckon.

In need of a bit of funk? Aye, me too.

Let Riton help.

There have been some rather good remixes too from some familiar names.

Deriving strength from this ear-worm, exemplary pop song by Sia.

Elastic Heart as a song is not to be under estimated, but is frequently misunderstood.

There was some controversy. Have a look.

Read article link and consider your feelings before deciding whether to watch the below video.
