Jenny And The Mexicats kommen mit dem neuen Album "Fiesta Ancestral" im Herbst 2019 zum dritten Mal nach Deutschland, um ihre hiesige, stetig wachsende Fangemeinde erneut zu beglücken. Festival-Auftritte im Sommer und zahlreiche Konzerte in den USA, Latein Amerika und Spanien haben noch mehr Anhänger der (Alternative) Latin Music auf sie aufmerksam gemacht. Die Konzerthallen und Festival-Bühnen werden dabei stetig größer, denn mit ihrer einzigartigen Mischung aus (Alternative) Latin, Cumbua, Falemco, Jazz, Reggae, Rockabilly und Pop machen sie jedes Konzert zur Tanzparty. Das neue Album bietet dabei eine Erweiterung des bisherigen Mexicats-Sounds, was auch an der Zusammenarbeit mit befreundeten Künstlern liegt. Der Album Titel weist schon auf die Verknüpfung des Traditionellen mit modernen Elementen hin. Im Bereich des Traditionellen siedeln sich Songs wie "La Cumbia del Vino" und das Selena-Cover "Si una Vez" an. Neue Einflüsse sind in Songs wie "Sonido De Tu Voz" (Prince-artige Grooves und coole Vocals), "La Oportunidad" (der Bass!), "Ancestral" (Jenny rappt und der Song könnte aus einem Soundtrack stammen) sowie "Correr" (hat was von den B52's) zu hören. Und natürlich in den Künstler-Kooperationen mit Spaniens großartiger Alternative Rockband Nr. 1, Vetusta Morla, bei der Vorab-Single "El Télon" und dem Titel "Bailando con las Farolas" mit dem populären spanischen Singer-Songwriter El Kanka. Beide Kooperationen haben der Band unter den Spaniern in aller Welt viel zusätzlich Aufmerksamkeit und Popularität verschafft.
Advanced Groove Concepts is a collection of intermediate to advanced level grooves and patterns applicable to all modern styles of music. The focus of the book is to develop the ability to play varied and sometimes complex patterns between the hands while keeping a solid groove, reminiscent of some of the legendary funk and fusion drummers, all while building the weaker hand into a groove-creating engine. Starting with repetitive hi-hat/ride patterns, the book progresses through various ghost notes variations and then combines non-repetitive riding patterns with varied snare drum combinations containing accents and ghost notes. These grooves are practiced with various bass drum combinations. The book can be practiced by right-handed and left-handed drummers, and it can also be played with an open-handed approach. Included is a data disc containing seven videos and 159 audio examples performed by the author, including a bonus performance video!
A bassline is the term used in many styles of popular music, such as jazz, blues, funk, dub and electronic music for the low-pitched instrumental part or line played by a rhythm section instrument such as the electric bass, double bass or keyboard. Basslines in popular music often use "riffs" or "grooves", which are usually simple, appealing musical motifs or phrases that are repeated, with variation, throughout the song. Bassline riffs usually emphasize the chord tones of each chord which helps to define a song's key. At the same time, basslines work along with the drum part and the other rhythm instruments to create a clear rhythmic pulse. The type of rhythmic pulse used in basslines varies widely in different types of music. In swing jazz and jump blues, basslines are often created from a continuous sequence of quarter notes in a mostly scalar, stepwise part called a "walking bass line." In latin, salsa music, jazz fusion, reggae, electronica, and some types of rock and metal, basslines may be very rhythmically complex and syncopated. In bluegrass and traditional country music, basslines often emphasize the root and fifth of each chord

Electronica includes a wide range of contemporary electronic music designed for a wide range of uses, including foreground listening, some forms of dancing, and background music for other activities, however, unlike electronic dance music, it is not specifically made for dancing. The term was first used in the United States in the early 1990s with regards to post-rave global-influenced electronic dance music. Genres such as techno, drum and bass, downtempo, and ambient are among those encompassed by the umbrella term, entering the American mainstream from "alternative" or "underground" venues during the late 1990s. Prior to the adoption of electronica for this purpose, terms such as electronic listening music, and intelligent dance music (IDM) were used. Allmusic categorises electronica as a top-level genre on their main page, where they state that electronica includes "dozens of stylistic fusions" ranging from danceable grooves to music for headphones and chillout areas. Electronica has grown to influence mainstream crossover recordings.
G-funk, or Gangsta-Funk, is a sub-genre of hip hop music that emerged from West Coast gangsta rap in the early 1990s. G-funk (which uses funk music with an artificially lowered tempo) incorporates multi-layered and melodic synthesizers, slow hypnotic grooves, a deep bass, background female vocals, the extensive sampling of p-funk tunes, and a high portamento sine wave keyboard lead. The lyrical content consisted of sex, drugs, violence, and women. There was also a slurred lazy way of rapping in order to clarify words and stay in rhythmic cadence. Hip hop soul is the second major subgenre of contemporary R&B. It is also known as melodic hip-hop, since this music is hip-hop with melodic elements, most likely R&B but may include pop, electronica, or dance elements with it. The term generally describes a style of music that blends soulful R&B singing and raw hip hop production. The genre served as the middle point between two other hip hop/R&B blends, new jack swing and neo soul, and while it was most popular during the mid-1990s with artists such as the "Queen of Hip Hop Soul" Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, and Aaliyah, it still finds popularity with newcomers such as Keyshia Cole, Jeremih, and Amerie.
