DESCRIPTION

Re:works is the result of a groundbreaking project that sees the rich catalogue of Decca Classics being opened to some of the world’s foremost electronic producers, seeking to further establish the common ground between the historic and modern day aspects of musical composition.

Ranging from the experimental to the more recognisable 4/4 structures of house and techno, Re:works elicits the full range of emotion – from the heartbreaking to the ecstatic.

Francesco Tristano takes on one of the most recogniseable piano riffs of all time with his remix of ‘Merry Christmas Mr. Laurence’, which, after a brief introduction of that seminal loop, descends into deep, dubby house cut punctuated by shimmering keys.

Patrice Baumel’s remix is an intense techno workout that is in many ways the antithesis of his definitive ‘Roar’: a non-stop pummeling via clattering percussion and a heavy, pulsing bassline. Completing the package, Grammy-nominated studio legend Martin Buttrich delivers a melancholy, minimalistic techno take on Satie’s ‘Gnossienne No.4’
