Für eine perfekte Bedrock-Party – John Digweed stellt „Bedrock Frequencies“ zusammen

Bedrock Frequencies_Artwork

Am morgigen Freitag, den 14. Juli 2017, kommt sie raus: die Zusammenstellung „Bedrock Frequencies“. Kuratiert wurde die dreifache CD und Vinylplatte von John Digweed. Der Brite suchte sich 31 Tracks raus, die von Bedrocks Lieblingsproduzenten, Labeldebütanten, Klassikern, die neu interpretiert wurden, und aus spannende Kollaborationen stammen. Die drei markanten Kollektionen – „Low“, „Mid“ und „High“ – sind gemacht worden, um „eine perfekte Bedrock-Party“ musikalisch darzustellen, erklärt das Label. Einer der Tracks kommt von Saints & Sinners: „Pushin Too Hard“ – ein legendäres Release von Bedrock, das der israelische Musiker Guy Mantzur neu interpretiert hat. Die Version ist ein Karriere-High-Point-Remix geworden, den der höchst talentierte Musiker aus Tel Aviv kreierte.


Die Kollektion ist via www.johndigweed.com zum Vorbestellen erhältlich.

trndmsk: What inspired you to make the remix?

Guy Mantzur: Old classics always inspire me – the groove and the deep analogue sounds make me connected automatically to the music, and it’s the same here with „Pushin Too Hard“. I was listening to the original and to some of the other remixes and that connection helped me to decide the direction I wanted my new version to take.

Since this is such a truly legendary Bedrock track (and the label’s 9th release back in 2000). How did you approach the original?

I love the original so much, so I’m super happy that I had a chance to make my own interpretation.

Where and how did you produce it?

I produced it in my studio – the same place where I make all my music. I decided to take one important part from the original, which is the main melody, and build everything around it. I was guided all the time by the thought that I have to stay loyal to the original idea but still give it my own twist and sound.

How did this remix happen?

It was John Digweed’s idea. He just contacted me and asked me if I would be up for doing it, and of course, I said yes on the spot! A few weeks afterwards we met at a party and John told me that every time he plays my remix of Monkey Safari ‘Boris’ something in the vibe reminds him of ‘Pushin Too Hard‘ by Saints & Sinners and that’s how he came up with the idea of getting me to remix this classic.

What’s next for you after this? Are you working on other projects?

I’m working on a lot of original music at the moment. I also have a remix for Super Flu coming out soon on their label, a remix of Nick Warren coming out on Sudbeat, and I have a live CD album coming out on my label – it’s a set I recorded at Warung Club Brazil and it will be a part of my ‘A Guy In…’ series. It has 20 tracks from different artists including myself and is a 2.5 hours live mix.
