Musical Notes:

“Work Ya Body” is a song by Meat Katie, also known as Mark Pembler who is a London- based breakbeatproducer and DJ.  His music combines techno, tribal, electro, breakbeat and house music.  There are many different genres and sub-genres of electronic music, although some people tend to call it all “techno” music.  To electronic music fans and musicians, techno refers to a style of music that originated in Detroit in the mid – late 1980’s.  Detroit techno was a blend of European synthesizer-sounds with African American styles such as Chicago house, funk, electro, and electric jazz.  If you’re interested in learning more about electronic music, check out Ishkur’s Guide to Electronic Music. It’s a great interactive guide, although he clearly has bias towards certain types of electronic music.

Here’s the track:

    In the work ya body hw, in the picture of the guy pushing a cart, if you put an arrow pointing left, would that be saying that he is pushing the cart forwards, or backwards?

  6. tifftai says:

    he is pushing the cart forwards so the arrow for the direction of motion is to the left.
