Nile Rodgers Tells the Story of How He Turned David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” from Folk to New Wave Funk

When David Bowie invited Chic guitarist and all-around funk/disco guitar genius Nile Rodgers to make an album of “hits” in Switzerland, Rogers remembers thinking, “okay, ‘hits’ with David Bowie, that’s an awesome project.” The way he deadpans might make us think he wasn’t super stoked about it, but the fact is, it’s hard to impress Nile Rodgers. He has produced, written, and played guitar—the very Stratocaster he’s holding in the video above—on “hundreds, maybe thousands” of records, he ...

G Phatz – “Walking Threat” (Album Review)

Texas has produced some big names in Hip Hop, from Bun B, to Paul Wall, to Nelly, and even Travis Scott. With that kind of notoriety, how does G Phatz and his latest release, “Walking Threat,” hold up to to the Texas standard of excellence? The first thing to note with G Phatz is that he has a pretty good voice and sound. He’s definitely carved out a style for himself and knows exactly what it is. This much is great, but my biggest issue with the album is the mans pen. There’s no other way t...
