Una is interviewed tonight on Echoes.
Trip-Hop music of the 1990s brought several worlds together. In groups like Portishead, Massive Attack and Morcheeba, you could hear elements of hip-hop, electronic music, lounge moods and torch song singing. Una has taken those sounds in a different direction over the last six years, adding jazz, film scores and cabaret into the mix. Their latest album is called The Laughing Man. Hear about this band when I talk to them tonight on Echoes.
Eddie Barajas on Vinyl: Well, basically I like to sample very random records. For example, I was just using a text typing record, an instructional course. I also have a self relaxation record, which has some soothing sounds and nice things. I like, I like the guy and what he says and everything, so…I tend to go thrift store shopping a lot and start digging through the old vinyl, and you know, Disney records, children’s stories, Aladdin, just the most random things I can find I tend to try and slip in there.
Jennifer Nice on the moods of Una: So one of the latest things we would do is to create like a film noir set and we would have like old pictures of our relatives on the DJ table with a slow running fan, like an old detective’s office…antique phone, just kind of all dressed up.
