Joining the ranks of world renowned producers Ben Böhmer, Mark Höffen, Rodriguez Jr., Booka Shade and Patrice Bäumel, who all previously delivered breathtaking remixes of tracks taken from the “Orchestra” album, this release entitled “By the Brook (Piano Remixes)” features the who is who of contemporary pianists. Sofiane Pamart, Francesco Tristano and Antoine Decrop all have created mesmerising interpretations of “By the Brook”.
The Paris based artist Sofiane Pamart, known for his collaborations with with French Hip Hop kings like Vald, Médine, Kery James, SCH & Grand Corps Malade, and who’s trademark is braking the elitist codes of classical Piano is first up. His remix is a fusion of extraordinary and irresistible layers of piano melodies and a snappy four to the floor groove. Sofiane created an exquisite journey of a track, best enjoyed with your eyes closed on a dancefloor near you.
Luxembourg-born pianist Francesco Tristano tours the world performing baroque and contemporary repertoire and records dance tracks for electronic music labels. Another perfect candidate for a Worakls remix! His composition is an intense almost eight minute long escapade through the depths of high quality dance music. Francesco manages to not only come up with magnificent melodies but also strong grooves and rhythms through his pianistic expressions.
Antoine Decrop started playing the Piano at the age of eight and has since went on an incredible musical journey – winning prizes, playing concert tours in French cathedrals, performing Beethoven’s 3rd concerto in C minor with the Orchester de la Garde Républicaine and more. His piano-only interpretation is the perfect example of how much energy and modernism can be extracted from this incredibly versatile and beautiful instrument. Antoine manages to communicate the essence and power of “By the Brook” in perfect style with just the piano.
