I'm really excited to announce my remix of The Elder Statesman's "Montreux Sunrise" is out today on my favorite label, Bastard Jazz! This was really a labor of love and kind of a unique story about how it came about. When I heard the original, produced by New Zealand's Lord Echo, I knew I had to put my touch on it. To the original composition of double bass (played by Daniel Yeabsley), piano (played by Christopher Yeabsley) and snare (Lord Echo) I added some light brasilian touches, creating a sort of slomo disco bossa jazz affair. I uploaded it to my soundcloud and sent it on to the label just to check out. To my surprise, Aaron, who runs the label, got right back to me saying he dug the vibe and that he was going to pass it on to Lord Echo to check out. I was pretty happy with this alone but when I got a message a few days later saying that Lord Echo really dug it too and that they wanted to release on an upcoming ep, I was, needless to say, delighted! You can hear my "Ipanema Sunrise Remix" below and, for a mere FOUR BUCKS you can buy the whole ep, featuring great music from Lord Echo, Captain Planet and Nick Wisdom. Pick it up directly from the label's page on Bandcamp!
