I love when I find music organically because when I share it, you know I genuinely like it or love it.
I haven’t written in my diary in a long time, but after hearing this ‘Dear Diary’ (Stephen Durkin Mix), I’m ready to create some steamy drama, so I have something sizzling hot in my diary like this mix of Michael M Rodriguez’s track.
Music is a spiritual experience for me and the connection I have with music is more than just listening to it. I listen to the rhythm, the vocals, but it’s also closely related to what’s going on in my life.
Music is food for the soul. Whenever I am feeling down, strangely, the music that surfaces or I discover is club tracks. Club/Dance tracks seem to snap me out of my melodrama or self-pity moments.
Dance music initially emerged from late 19th century’s Western ballroom and social dance music. During the early 20th century, ballroom dancing gained popularity among the working class who attended public dance halls.
Dance music became enormously popular during the 1920s. In the 1930s, called the Swing era, Swing music was the popular dance music in America. In the 1950s, rock and roll became the popular dance music. The late 1960s saw the rise of soul and R&B music.
The rise of disco in the early 1970s led to dance music becoming popular with the public. By the late 1970s, electronic dance music was developing. This music, made using electronics, is a style of popular music commonly played in nightclubs, radio stations, shows, and raves. Many subgenres of electronic dance music have evolved.
Club/Dance music is part of my daily life, but I will say I am biased to certain types of club music. I guess my preference in a specific club sound comes from growing up in NYC and having what I would like to say the ultimate nightclub experience in the late 90’s.
The club scene in NYC in the late 90’s was unbelievable and a period that can never be re-created, however, when a track brings me back to that period but offers something new is when I find it worthwhile to write about it.
‘Dear Dairy’ is one of those tracks for me. It hit the spot and gave the energy to get up and write and let the world know about this new release, the drums, continuous tribal-electronic, caddy voices and layered percussion are the reason I love this track.
