bretter daze / better days

this tune, which i heard for the first time only the other day, sums up pop music in 2011

the king of crunk hooks up with the kings of party-rocking

result: in a track that brings out the latent gabber i always heard in crunk

damn near just drums and that bugle-like sax parp calling the assembled to attention

Lil Jon mad-barking like a drill sergeant of reckless getting-wreckedness

an anthem of concussive hedonism

kickdrum beat like a battery of shots to the dome

bretter was what the Germans called the hardtekno that became gabber - bretter meaning literally boards, planks, and thence banging, slamming, and thence hammered, sledgied, monged

have a wicked NY's Eve, keep it tidy, and here's to much better days in 2012!
