Do It Til You're Satisfied

Love at first note... It doesn't happen often… but when it does, it’s a very special feeling. Symptoms may include Goosebumps on the arms, butterflies in the stomach, chills down the spine, and the uncontrollable urge to move like you've been hypnotized.

B.T. Express
I fell in love with this song the very second I heard it while sitting in the back of the most influential music class of my life, I just happened to be sitting next to our founding father of EDAS. 

B.T. Express’s debut album of the same title had this effect on millions in 1974 as it spent weeks as the #1 on the R&B charts. The popularity and timing of “Do It” could claim it as disco but to me this leans way towards funk. The song quickly builds from bongos, to a funky guitar riff, to a bass line that speaks the chorus. That chorus tells you to enjoy life, find the things that make you happy, than do it again. Horns and organ join in later to complete the circle of this funk jam.

Stay hungry for the finer things this world has to offer. Art, love, music, friends, nature…. Whatever it is, Do it ‘til you’re satisfied.

Kitty Pryde & Lakutis take on Santos

Kitty Pryde will be at Santo's Party House tonight (8/22) and EDAS will be covering of course. Hopefully I'll be basey and not creepy and get to talk to her! Upcoming NYC Rapper, Lakutis will be opening.

Just saw this cat last night at The Moon's 72nd Show at Union Pool. His set was pretty tight considering the audience was mostly white people who do not like rap. Dude opened with Death Shark off his "I'm in the Forrest" EP which was mixed by Lynas at Brooklyn's famed Ishlab Studios.  Next he treated us to a couple new tracks from his up coming album, Body Scream (produced by Ratatat) and Too Ill for the Line (Produced by Kynan Williams). He told me the name of the album but I got drunk and forgot! Whoopsie! 

Keep looking at the site OR JOIN THE BRAND NEW #EDAS FACEBOOK PAGE for pics and a review of the show. Here's today's song, Death Shark.
