Music Review by Devon Jackson for “We Can Go Dancing” by Domino Grey

Over a pseudo-tabla-drum synth beat, Grey layers on other, bigger, though not at all overwhelming phrases—Moogish, rhythmic, sci-fi-ish. But nothing too big. Nothing too fast. It’s all very smooth. Very tempered. Very well thought out in terms of production, in terms of the feeling it’s wanting to convey. (As opposed to so many other electronica tunes that come at you pell-mell, or throwing out everything and the kitchen sink.) “We Can Go” is more like background music that’s finally, rightfully given center-stage—to a very mellow rave set in a very evolved near future. Picture—sonically, mind—the work of Paul Hardcastle or Jan Hammer, only without their aggressiveness, without that harsh edginess.

**Shared in a follow-up: I really like this. It’s somehow different without being pronouncedly different. What does that mean? Hmm. That you’re not trying to be different, that you’re not forcing it to be something than what it is. It’s whatever it is without you having over-thought it. Really nice.- Devon Jackson

Domino Grey Says:

-Following a good review makes a nice place for me to talk about the production of “We Can Go Dancing”. Not much of a track spotlight since this one fell together in a  pretty forward way.  I was grooving to it from the start. The first working had a 4 to the floor drum track that was ‘stolen’ by another song (from B Affect part II) that was just screaming it for it. So I stayed with the disco-y type drum track. DJ Boogiepop is always asking for more effects and filter sweeps in my mixes so I started this one off really Lo-Fi with the song crunched out like a poor radio broadcast. [removed in Europrint version] This is also one the simpler songs when it comes to gear use and the amount of processing. It’s 95% KORG M3 (Music) and Radikal Tech Spectralis 2 (Base and Drops). There’s a little KORG EMX for the drums and a few plugs running in the room after that.

This track became a lead single due to its popularity. It performed best on internet radio stations although a lot of DJs said “Just Look at Me” was the one to watch for. Mostly, I’ve kept them paired together and usually drop one after the other. One of my favorite parts is when the crowd gets noisy in the middle right before the song jumps back in.

And it’s funny that I used a crash. It’s so…cliche and common in most genres of music that it’s not really done in EDM. I was thinking “Yeah, I’m going to drop a classic Rock&Roll splash right as the track restarts. A big one, a  loud one. What’s funny is that it’s the simplest element, but it was also the one I spent the most time working with and agonizing over. I tried and layered over a dozen splashes from every module in the studio and none of them fit. I knew the one in my head was from my old KORG ES-1 Drum machine so I grabbed my recent purchase, the blue-meanie (as I call it) EMX and smashed away. There’s a layer of crashes that I stripped way in the original release that I put back in for the Europrint version.

Well, thanks for supporting my music. You can find it on iTunes, Amazon, Beatport and CDBaby.

A big shout to DJ Boogiepop and People’s Choice Entertainment DJs for giving my music so much burn.

Drive (2011) Movie Review

Drive Movie Poster

I’m not sure what drove me to see Drive. Watching the trailer left me thinking Drive was a story about a race car driver who works on the side driving getaway cars for thieves and other criminals. Some aspects made it look like an action roadster movie with tons of chase scenes and big ‘escape the police’ action sequences.

There’s a little bit of that, but a whole lot more under the hood. The director, Nicolas Winding Refn, has recreated a 1970s styled….Burt Reynolds flick mixed with a little James Dean cool. Ryan Gosling (also in The Notebook and The Ides of March, opposite George Clooney) is cast as ‘the kid’, an unnamed mechanic with a sordid past and dangerous alter-ego hiding behind his outer shell of innocence. It’s a great casting that at first makes you wonder how ‘the kid’ can change the world around him with his quiet and soft demeanor.

The plot is pretty simple and straightforward. The kid befriends a lone mother and child and their growing relationship is complicated by the release of the boy’s father, a Standard Gabriel (played by Oscar Isaac from Sucker Punch). His troubles follow him out of the box as he finds himself still boxed in and needs to pull off one last job. It’s an odd proposition for our driver. He has the unique skill-set to help, but why is he risking his life, only to help the woman he wants- move on without him? If everything goes well…c’mon you know the rest. That last job never turns out as planned.

A woman who left the theater ahead of me said she felt like her stomach tightened up and only relaxed as the credits rolled. I agree. This is a suspenseful movie that revels in its atmosphere. It feels dark and ominous. The cinematography and location(s) help sink us into bleakness as L.A. is rendered as a far away glittery and dreamy backdrop to the darkest of places, characters and deeds.
Bernie Rose, played by Albert Brooks, is the perfect combination of mobster, thug and 1940s gangster. When meeting the kid, there is a tense moment when a handshake is expected. The Driver pauses and you wonder if their relationship is going to start off with an insult. The kid says his hands are dirty and so that’s why he’s not shaking hands. Bernie Rose replies ‘so are mine’. The double meaning of ‘dirty hands’ and the interplay between characters throughout is well scripted and executed.

At some point I would like to revisit this movie and discuss it again after it’s been around a while so we can include spoilers and twists.

In conclusion, this is one of my favorite movies. I felt like I had seen a throwback to a grittier era. The on-screen violence is filmed in a very realistic way. It’s shocking without being done for shock value. It also explains why your stomach was so knotted. You knew it was coming.

This is one of those movies that gets better the more you think about it. As you remember how cool this scene and that scene was and how some of the simplest of actions are given so much weight and meaning, you’ll realize you’ve seen a really good movie. There’s lots of symbolism and repeated motifs to pick up so it also stands up well in repeat viewings. I recommend this movie to all my friends. It’s a little hard to describe so I pretty much say “just see it and then we’ll talk about it”.

I’m not a movie critic; I’m just critiquing a movie.
