Original Sample:

Chanson d’Un Jour d’Hiver by Cortex

Jazzy, Funky, and Melancholy — These are words I think describe the genius that is Troupeau Bleu, the debut album from Cortex. It is a cohesive body of music that is a perfect blend of pianos (Alain Mion), drums (Alain Gandolfi), bass (Jean Grevet), and female vocals (Mireille Dalbray). Some would say this album is the holy grail in terms of French Jazz and supposedly it was recorded in just two days in the summer of 1975. We don’t often sample the same artist back to back. We’ll likely switch it up next week, but I have a feeling we’re not done with Cortex.

Here’s a few quick updates:

Generation ILL” Music Video | For those of you that have the channel, MYX TV will be airing our video on its show “Press Play” tomorrow, 7/19 @ 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific.

WBS Community Forum | The forum is up and people are talking! The link is located in the navigation menu above. Submit sample suggestions, talk about equipment/software, promote a project, talk about your favorite WBS week. It’s not only an opportunity for producers to trade secrets of their craft, but also an opportunity for the listeners to get to know the producers.

peace, @illa0804/@generationill
