Cette Claque de Basse


Bernard Edwards

Quand j'ai commencé The CHIC Organization avec Bernard Edwards, c'était avant l'utilisation massive des sub-woofers. Pour accentuer les fréquences basses, on accentuait la grosse caisse et la guitare basse un peu plus que dans les disques pop. C'est une technique R&B old school qui m'a bien servi jusqu'à aujourd'hui.

J'ai beaucoup pensé à Bernard ces derniers temps et à ce que nous avons fait. Tout a commencé avec notre premier disque de CHIC "Everybody Dance." Nous avons appris à garder Cette Claque de Basse.

You will hear a Nile Rodgers song today. It will make you happy.

Today's pop music—genre-crossing, gender-bending, racially mixed, visually stylish, and dominated by dance music with global appeal—is the world that Nile Rodgers created. In the 1970s and 1980s, he wrote and produced the songs that defined that era and everything that came after: "Le Freak," "Good Times," "We Are Family," "Like a Virgin," "Modern Love," "I'm Coming Out," "The Reflex," "Rapper's Delight." Aside from his own band, Chic, he worked with everyone from Diana Ross and Madonna to David Bowie and Duran Duran (not to mention Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Prince, Rod Stewart, Robert Plant, Depeche Mode, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Grace Jones, Bryan Ferry, INXS, and the B-52's), transforming their music, selling millions of records, and redefining what a pop song could be.
