Energie du Verre - Versions Vibes and Remixes
(Promo CD/Digital) Batterie 005, 2009-11-27

13 month after the release of the debut album, it is now followed by the Versions, Vibes & Remixes EP on Batterie. 4 brand new tunes, 3 versions and 2 remixes add up to 9 fresh new tracks by Energie Du Verre. Some focus on the dance floor, others more on jazz. Some lean towards funk and some towards electro. Energie Du Verre's music refuses to be pigeonholed. Instead, it invites the listener to dive head first into a musical microcosm. Du Verre and his two remixers proof just how diverse today's club music scene is.

Press Release :
13 month after the release of the debut album, it is now followed by the Versions, Vibes & Remixes EP on Batterie. 4 brand new tunes, 3 versions and 2 remixes add up to 9 fresh new tracks by Energie Du Verre.

Some focus on the dance floor, others more on jazz. Some lean towards funk and some towards electro. Energie Du Verre's music refuses to be pigeonholed. Instead, it invites the listener to dive head first into a musical microcosm. Du Verre and his two remixers proof just how diverse today's club music scene is.

This year, Du Verre has already drummed The Big Wobble at the Mojo Club. New Orleans Jazz, funk and a dash of jazzy spices are cooked up with some cranky shellac-samples and piano licks. Feet start to move and legs begin to shake immediately.

A newcomer to the Batterie-Universe is vibraphone-player Rupert Stamm. He is adding a new multi-facetted colour to the musical spectrum on Cinema Oriental. Rockin' Habanera (the original on United Ancestors was highly praised by Mr. Scruff) adds another link to the orient. Tunes like French Jive, Méthode De Batterie or Cha Cha Bounce bear witness to a profound and loving attention to the tiniest of details.

Timo Weiner's remix of the debut's title track United Ancestors brings things to a close and let's us experience a love-match of recent electronic and jazz elements. Drawing a comparison to other musical projects is not an easy task to do. Just a hint: If originality would roll, Energie Du Verre would have to hit the brakes while driving uphill.
