TR+ Extended Interview - Class Of 2015: Dan Patlansky & Aaron Keylock
The new blues New blues hotshots come from opposite sides of the world, but they both hold the future of the genre in their hands.
They make a cool pair, comparing old-school guitars in Camden’s Blues Kitchen. Beaming, pint-sized South African Dan Patlansky deals in funked-up blues rock, while the taller, softly spoken Aaron Keylock rivals heroes like Johnny Winter – at the tender age of 17. “The blues is a genre that lends itself to individuals putting their own feel into it,” says Patlansky.
Keylock agrees: “It’s an emotional kind of music.”
