Demon guitar with Amer Jongleur and BadBoy #downtempo #electronic #guitar #flamenco

A couple of tracks this morning from Amer Jongleur and BadBoy that make lots of use of acoustic guitar in an electronic setting.

Amer Jongleur is from France and his track is Harmless Demons. It’s a lovely electronic instrumental with a bit of the approaching anticipatory menace about it. Uses the guitar to offset any doominess in the track to leave something balanced between serious and sweet. In fact, AJ says this is the, “Main theme for my upcoming indie game Harmless Demons.” I’m not really one for playing computer games but I do like this track which works in its own right.

Next BadBoy from Italy with Guajira. This is a flamenco driven electronic track full of the thrills of Spain. Or more properly the thrills of Spain via Cuba since Guajira is a style that originated there from Punto Cubano. Big slams of guitar body work drive the track forward in time with the beats. That allows the melody a platform on which to run riot. All too often flamenco guitar is used on downtempo to allow a noodly element. Not so here. This is driven, driving stuff herding you relentlessly onto the dance floor. Submit.
