D-Train - 1982 - You're The One For Me











[Português] James Williams, ou apenas Dtrain, é um cantor, compositor, instrumentista e produtor musical natural do Brooklyn, Nova Iorque. Músico atuante desde 1980, circula entre o post-disco, R&B, soul, funk, hip hop, dance, rock e gospel. O disco "You're The One For Me" foi o primeiro de Dtrain e obteve grande aceitação, atingindo as paradas de sucesso do início dos anos 80 principalmente com as músicas "Keep On" e "You're the One for Me". Hoje Dtrain possui vários álbuns lançados, mas este primeiro permanece como uma forte marca de sua carreira. Neste review do blog sobre os clássicos da música funk do período entre o final da décadas de 1970 e início da década de 1980, fase de grande fertilidade, também marcou uma importante mudança no gênero, a incorporação da sonoridade eletrônica. Surgido no final da década de 1960, o funk veio até o final da década de 1970 respeitando seus padrões instrumentais com a utilização de metais, baixo, guitarra, bateria, piano, órgão e congas principalmente. O teclado eletrônico, ou conhecido como sintetizador, já era utilizado como um dos instrumento desde o surgimento do funk, mas no início dos anos 80, com a evolução tecnológica sobre os instrumentos musicais, surgiram sintetizadores com outras possibilidades e consequentemente mais funções dentro do grupo musical. Diversas bandas de soul/funk/R&B surgidas nessa época adotaram esta tecnologia rapidamente, o disco "You're the One for Me" de Dtrain ilustra essa novo som, onde os sintetizadores assumiram diversas funções na banda, ocupando os papeis dos metais, dos baixos entre outros efeitos na orquestração.      

[English] James Williams or by the stage name Dtrain is a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and music natural producer from Brooklyn, New York. Active musician since 1980 runs between the post-disco, R&B, soul, funk, hip hop, dance, rock and gospel. The "You're The One For Me" album was the first of Dtrain and obtained wide acceptance reaching the pop charts in the early 80's especially with the songs "Keep On" and "You're the One for Me." Today Dtrain has released several albums but the first remains a strong brand for your career. This review blog on classic funk music of the period between the late 1970s and early 1980s, high fertility phase, also marked an important shift in the genre, the incorporation of electronic sound. Emerged in the late 1960s, funk came to the end of the 1970s respecting their instrumental patterns using metal, bass, guitar, drums, piano, organ and mainly congas. Electronic, or known as synthesizer keyboard, was already used as one of the instrument since its inception funk, but in the early 80s with the technological evolution of musical instruments, synthesizers appeared with other possibilities and thus more functions within the musical group. Several bands of soul / funk / R & B emerged at that time adopted this technology quickly, the album "You're the One for Me" by Dtrain illustrates this new sound, where synthesizers have assumed various roles in the band, occupying the roles of metals, low among other effects in the orchestration.
