BeatSession 08|22|11

Original Sample:

Dedicated by Axis

Progressive or Psychedelic? Many people use the terms interchangeably, but there is a difference. Progressive Rock is a cousin (or more like a little brother) to Psychedelic Rock. It usually has extended non-traditional song structures, change in time signatures, esoteric subject matter. The genre borrows elements from jazz and classical music. Psychedelic Rock is more trippy — its almost like an acid trip in music form. We’ve sampled Psychedelic Rock twice before: BeatSession 02|28|10 and BeatSession 11|22|10. This week’s sample comes from Axis, a Greek band that was based out of Paris. I think they fall into the Progressive Rock category. I think. But what do I know? I’m a hip hop head at heart. I do know that both genres LOVE using Mellotrons!… uh what?

Ok. Honestly, I wasn’t familiar with the term, Mellotron, until 2 hrs before this post when I googled it. So when I saw it listed as one of the instruments used on this album, and when I found out what it actually was, I had to dedicate a portion of this write-up to it. A mellotron was one of the first sample-playback keyboards ever created. It used a bunch of tape heads located under each key. Here’s an old Mellotron advertisement from when it was first created:
