Eric Prydz – Pjanoo
For a fan of EDM, its refreshing to see true house music making a comeback. For a while in the late 2000’s it was all about Trance and Electro, while true house was kind of left in the dust. Surprisingly, house’s comeback is emerging from an unexpected location. When most people think of house the first two places that come to mind are Chicago and France, though Sweden has now become the hotbed of true house music with artists such as AN21, Max Vangelli, Axwell, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Eric Prydz bringing back the old traditions.
Posted above is a favorite song of mine, “Pjanoo” by Eric Prydz. It’s one of those feel good songs to me, always puts me in a good mood. Long live house music, and may this revival continue.
Black Lips during a 2009 concert in France:
Cole: If you were the teacher, what would you grade us tonight?
Joe: A+, we know it all the way.
Cole: You would put us in special needs classes. If you were our teacher, you would put us in classes for retarded children.
Wasted Jared Swilley: This is why we are where we are right now. Because our whole life we were normal childrens in the retardeds classes. This is why we act the way do right now because no one understands us.
Cole: You put me with retarded children. I’m not retarded.
Jared: You can’t blame us for acting like retards when your whole world put us as retards. We are a product of this world that is run by white people.
Cole: It is a reflection of your whole generation. It’s just looking in the mirror.
Joe: I bet you wish you were retarded just like us!
Cole: Look in the mirror!
Jared: Your generation called us faggots, you called us white boys, you called us retards, queers, homos. We’re sick of that shit so this is the product of what we became because of you.
Ian: You were probably that kid, too. Stuck in the side room, didn’t have no friends.
