Kenlou III What A Sensation

Oh and for clarity, I wasn't saying it's the best MAW track ever. You can hear it, and you can feel it. Post a Comment. Please donate to help keep this blog alive here. Immerse yourself in it as it progresses, and imagine the drummer taking a pause and a breath at the end of one of the sections, before launching in to a Kenlou III What A Sensation one.

Fundamentally, house and techno music are all about the beat, and ultimately, the kick drum. Everything else in the track is there as window dressing. The beat as a whole is the groove, and when you are dancing, the groove is everything. The most compulsive part of the beat is indisputably the kick drum — it is the magnetic element that makes the entire experience work.

For others, a beer, a big PA, and a bit of dark is enough to let their guard down. Some can manage to let go in the bright midday sun. Whatever, what is happening when things are at their best, is that the conscious and analytical part of the brain is slowly, wilfully being decommissioned.

You transition from analysis and evaluation, to direct experience. But what has this got to do with Masters at Work? The point is, that in dance music, the groove, the beat, is the element that communicates with that deeper, subconscious part of your brain. The other elements — the basslines, keyboard parts, strings, vocals and so on — all of that is window dressing — these melodic elements give your awake, analytical brain something to distract it, while it can slowly be switched off.

While your analytical self is distracted, your unconscious and the kick drum do the heavy lifting. For some people, they can directly connect with the tough and tracky side of house — the bare percussive tracks, the locked grooves, the endless repetition and the trancelike effect that it has.

Other people are less comfortable — the dropping of the analytical alertness that is a presumed necessity of our daily life is not second nature, and the contact with the deeper part of your brain has to be dressed up as something else.

Musically, the dressing can be basslines, vocals, melodies, and other elements to disguise and decorate the unconscious prerogative of the groove. That is it. The kick, clap and hihat provide a completely plain four-on-the-floor beat — nothing could be simpler.

On top of this, a single drum sound is the entire track. This single drum provides all the phrasing - all the ups, all the downs — everything. Neither is it a drum filler track - there is real phrase here. Immerse yourself in it as it progresses, and imagine the drummer taking a pause and a breath at the end of one of the sections, before launching in to a new one. You can hear it, and you can feel it. The entire story of the track, which is significant, is told by that one single sound.

It's stunningly produced. It makes cohesive sense as a track in it's own right — something almost unheard of in drum-only tracks which are usually regarded as filler or DJ mixing tools.

It sounds interesting in the cold light of day. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email. Sign me up!

Could there be? This track blew me away when I first heard it I still remember the irresistible feeling of that groove powering its way through the Arches , and blew me away every time I heard it afterwards. It blew me away when I finally got a copy, and nearly 15 years later, it still blows my mind. Fundamentally, house and techno music are all about the beat, and ultimately, the kick drum.
