Stung By Buzz

There are a lot of things going on so I might be able to get one last post (possibly a re-post of how to view the wedding) before the actual event. But, I had to post this up here while it is fresh in my head. It has to do with the podcast and an act we featured on it.

It took several episodes before deciding that we needed some music in the show. The best way to do that would be to focus on a specific artist, analyze their sound, talk about their music and what they are doing now. On Feb. 23rd, we featured a French electronic act named Buzz. I had been exchanging email with their principal member Jean-Christophe van Thienen and been sent a copy of their new album, Minimal & electronique, which we reviewed and featured on the show.

Yesterday, as I started work on the weekly newsletter, I noticed an email from J-C entitled "RE: surprise demo" with an attachment. It talked about the technical details of a new song that he'd been working on and that he didn't want to ruin the 'surprise.' When I played it, I heard a familiar voice... mine. It's a very good upbeat track of which I can't wait to hear the final product. If anything, I am absolutely overwhelmed by the honor. I'd love to let you hear it but I don't have the right to do so yet. Hopefully when finished or released we can. Way too cool.

If I don't get back here before the blessed event ... CONGRATULATIONS. I hope it's all you are hoping for, and more.
