David Bowie and Brian Eno's "Leon Suites" from the Outside sessions

Recently, for my ongoing series on the history of cyberpunk on Adafruit, I wrote about David Bowie and Brian Eno's cyberpunk-adjacent 1995 record, 1. Outside (The Nathan Adler Diaries: A Hyper Cycle).In the piece, I talk about the various experimental processes Bowie and Eno employed in creating the record, such as using Burroughsian cut-up and dialog from mental patients, and having the musicians play their instruments while roleplaying a character Eno would hand them on a 3×5 card each morning...

Graphic Novels Tell the Story of David Bowie, Billie Holiday, John Coltrane, Jean-Michel Basquiat & Other Artists and Thinkers

If you're fascinated by certain artists and thinkers, you can learn about them from books. Anyone who has a significant cultural or intellectual influence on humanity sooner or later gets a biography written about them, and usually more than one. But how many get their own graphic novels? The versatility of the "comic book," long unsuspected by many Western readers, has been more and more widely discussed in recent decades. Some of those readers, however, won't believe what can be done with the...

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 ...

Nile Rodgers Tells the Story of the Iconic Riff on Bowie’s Let’s Dance

In this video from Fender, the legendary producer/composer/guitarist Nile Rodgers sits down with his iconic Stratocaster and talks about how he took a folky tune that David Bowie came up with and turned it into the jazzy backbone of the pop song Let’s Dance, arguably Bowie’s biggest hit. Listening to where the song started off before Rodgers started tweaking, it’s hard for this musical simpleton to recognize that it’s even the same tune.

Although Red King let him down last year, D’Amato still won the $100,000 Grade III event with...
