Playlist: Nu-Blues / Electro-Blues

Balling the Jack: Birth of Nu-Blues

One of the few compilations of nu-blues music

Blues music is considered a heritage genre; however some musicians have sought to modernize the blues by using cutting edge electronics and technology to experiment with different sounds.

Nu-Jazz and Nu-Metal are quite big scenes right now; nu-blues less so, but here is a list of songs that will broaden one's scopes of how the blues can be manipulated:

Mississippi KKKrossroads - Chris Thomas King

Someday Baby - North Mississippi All-Stars remix by Brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson

Sure 'Nuff 'N Yes I Do - Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band

Ride On (Fight On) - Little Axe

St. James - Snakefarm

Natural Blues - Moby

Parchman Blues -Tangle Eye

It's Bad you Know (remix) - R.L Burnside

Death Letter - Johnny Farmer

Stagger Lee - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
