For her birthday in Feb., Nina invited frenzs to join her @ the Melkweg to see De Kift with Monofocus. The Ex & De Kift are the 2 reigning great Dutch bands, anarcho/syndicalist or otherwise. De Kift have great texts that sound a lot like 19th century naturalist novels or Brecht-Weill tales. But for this performance they had friend-collaborators, Monofocus, who describe themselves as a 1-man band with 3 heads. To me they are a trance-y fusion of blues & electronica that works because the roots seem genuinely cultivated & the electronica seems an organic inherent aspect of this exploration not just some add-on for dance track sales. Great mesmerizing, driving, humming, thumping danceable intelligent & syncopated beats & some great 21st century blues.
