I’m not sure how I got into this whole “facial hair” theme with my last few video posts, but if the music is good, then I will not be deterred by a little scruff. In this live performance from 1979, Toto steams things up in Cleveland with an extended version of their hit single, “Hold The Line”. And check out that keyboard player on stage left. I could be mistaken, but is that a young Howard Stern?
Dipster. A groove with origins stemming from deep inside the PBR-soaked clubs of Williamsburg. On the surface, it may sound like a rather straight ahead dance/rock beat, but it is actually a sonic melting pot of culture; Ironic mustaches, American Apparel, trust funds, Vice, David Fridmann. They all, in one way or another, contribute to the dipster DNA. So, what are you waiting for? Download this loop, load it up in Logic, set up some mics in your bathroom, and record a song that pitchfork will approve of.
