Quotes: Morricone builds a bridge between classic and pop music. He pays a lot of attention to tones and sounds, that makes him all time modern. 2Raumwohnung (Germany)
Info: On this year’s 10th of November, Ennio Morricone will turn 75, and we can finally sing out our ‘German-accent-flavoured-birthday-tune’, whilst handing the maestro our neatly wrapped present: ‘Ennio Morricone Remixes Vol. 1 & 2’. But in case that some of you just can’t wait for the day to arrive, we came up with a small, neat, little something that will definitely cure your curiosity! This 12” release contains one of the overall 40 interpretations, that were produced by topnotch Dance- and Electro-Producers from all over the world. They show their respect towards the maestro and call out a loud ‘big-up’ by interpreting their favourite pieces of Ennio’s work with much love and admiration. With the help of Ennio Morricone’s melodies actors no other than Clint Eastwood, Robert De Niro, Terence Hill, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Charles Bronsen, Kevin Costner, Harrison Ford, Sean Penn, Michael Douglas and Jack Nicholson turned into men. This must have been one of the reasons why so many (mostly male) artists came up to us, in order to ask whether they could join the project. This one sided 12” will give you a small taste of what the Ennio Morricone remix project will sound like! German producer couple 2Raumwohnung definitely get it on, and aim for our stomach with a phazed-up bassloop that viciously runs around in circles. The mixture of this basslick, a soaking wet snare with a hard kicking bassdrum, a steelguitar-loop and a bad-breath-whistle fully results in monotonous beauty! The fascination and admiration for the man, who Warren Beatty once called ‘…the most important composer of today’s time’ and who can refer to no less than 400 pieces of film-music, various pop-classics, numerous pieces of chamber music, several Oscar-, Academy Awards-, Golden Globe- and Grammy-nominations and an endless list of various different prizes and awards won and received over the last 40 years.
