Happy 78th birthday to Jesse Colin Young, born on this day in 1941. He was born Perry Miller in Queens, NY. He attended the 4th grade with Art Garfunkel. His mother was a violinist, and his father was an accountant with a strong interest in classical music. Jessie was a founding member and lead singer of the 1960s group the Youngbloods. In the 60s while living in Greenwich Village NYC, Young released 2 solo albums, “The Soul of a City Boy” and “Young Blood.” He then formed the group the Youngbloods with guitarist Jerry Corbitt, keyboardist and guitarist Lowell "Banana" Levinger, and drummer Joe Bauer. Young left the group in 1972 and released a solo album, “Together.” He continued touring and re-formed the Youngbloods before returning to a solo recording career in 1987. In 1993 he started a recording company, Ridgetop Music. “On the Road” was released in March of 1976. Young produced this live album, and mixed the Youngbloods favorites, "Sunlight" with some of his solo material, "Peace Song," a long version of "Ridgetop" and some covers (including a medley of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On,” "Mercy Mercy Me," and Randy Newman's "Have You Seen My Baby") for a varied album. #jessecolinyoung #ontheroad #sunlight
Pull it back to 2017: The good folks at @ramrecords had -- for the better part of the previous two years -- ensured our inbox was regularly filled with forthcoming fire.
Our burgeoning blog was desperately trying to find some sort of traction and the heady promotion reps at Ram had somehow caught wind of our humble online periodical. It was in our third full year of operation that the ANDY C co-founded imprint would send us a promo release from a then unknown studiosmith from the Estonian capital of Tallinn.
Beatmaker Eero Muiste - who would adopt the music making moniker @soundinnoise - would become a fixture for the Ram camp in the ensuing years. Part of an exciting new crop of talent being showcased by the Essex based independent, Sound In Noise would cement his 'Rated Next' status with a string of highly supported releases.
Heavily caned by a whole host of the scene's top DJs (including the Executioner himself) throughout this most recent open air festival season, peak time growler '13' gets a full release as part of the second volume of Sound In Noise's Shapes series of extended player offerings.
Featuring a blistering blend of pulsating synth stabs, larger than life basslines, and punchy drum hits, '13' batters dancefloors into submission with a bruising blend of sublimely sequenced sonics.
