Here is the initial line-up for Camp Bisco 8, taking place July 16-18 at Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY! SICKK!

From spinner.com:

The Disco Biscuits will return to the rolling fields of Mariaville, NY, this summer (July 16-18) for the eighth annual Camp Bisco — a three-day camping music festival which they both headline and curate. As always, the line-up is an extension of the Disco Biscuits sound, which brings together electronica and jam rock. In addition to no less than five Disco Biscuits sets throughout the event, Sound Tribe Sector Nine (STS9) will perform on two consecutive nights, and additional artists include Chromeo, the Orb, Dr. Dog, Damian Marley and Nas, K’Naan, and Pretty Lights.

This year also features a late-night dance tent with different theme nights. The “DFA Disco Tent” will house a set by Special Disco Version (featuring James Murphy and Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem). Twisted Records will host the other theme night where Younger Brother is scheduled for a rare live-instrument show, along with an equally rare double DJ set by Shpongle (Simon Posford vs. Raja Ram). As always, there will be a band-certified color war and the sights, sounds and smells of what the campers so lovingly refer to as “Bisco.”


Oldies of the Day by jammuse22

Here is an awesome live performance by Paul Simon of “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” from 1975’s “Still Crazy After All These Years.” Paul Simon is amazing, his instrumentals are completely underrated. The drums are so haunting by rarely dropping in this song, but If I could, I would marry Paul Simon, and if he left me (since he knows so many great ways to do so), at least I got 1 night.

Here is “You’re The One” off of 2000s “You’re The One.” So this might not be a technical oldie, but it is already 2009, so it is getting there. Listen to the bass and the teasing guitar and then tell me how this song just makes you want to bite your lower lip, bob your head and go ‘oooohhhhh yeahhhhh.’ He is having a lot of fun with his newer stuff. The lyrics are a little depressing, but it is Paul Simon, and they are beautiful.

Now onto some Stevie Wonder. Here is “Part Time Lover” from 1985’s “In Square Circle”

Stevie Wonder- Part Time Lover

Here is “Don’t Worry ’bout a Thing” from 1973s “Innervisions”

Stevie Wonder- Don't Worry 'bout a Thing

I put these artists up because of their significant influence to the music we listen to today. Whether we realize it or not, they were visionaries in song composition, lyrics and were able to reach millions of fans and affect their perception of the power of music. These two are classics and a must-have for any music buff.

So, Ronald Jenkees looks “special,” but the only thing special about him is his autodidact musical talent. The first video is him jamming to the drums of “Beyond Right Now,” off of Peaceblaster. And to be frank, Jenkees sounds better than the actual song. If you have seen this before, I am unapologetic. He is a lot of fun to watch and listen to. Enjoy!

Here is his Halloween Remix. “A dirty, south feel.”

He calls this, “Stay Crunchy,” an original composition.

“Throwing Fire,” another original. Gotta love the hat!

Jenkees produces some funky trip-hop, which sounds simpler than when you actually watch him play. Enough said by looking at his fingers roll over the keys. Who’s with me on getting him up to Boston/NY? Either that, or we might see him soon touring with STS9 and the like during the summer months (hopefully) on the festie circuit. He plays for fun and wants you to do the same. Here is his actual site.
