Nostalgia 77 Octet - Freedom

Nostalgia 77 Octet The Freedom Zombie Dance Remix
Nostalgia 77 Octet - Freedom
(7") Tru Thoughts TRU7093, 2006-01-16

Info :
En avant-goût de l'album live du Nostalgia 77 Octet à paraître très prochainement (le 27 Janvier 2006), voici un petit 45 tours avec un "Freedom Zombie Dance Remix" du track "Freedom" signé de Mike Pelanconi (producteur de samples de batterie, de riddims reggae/dub, ingé-son/producteur pour Graham Coxon, les Brand New Heavies, Twilight Circus Dub Sound System...), coupé en une "part 1" et une "part 2" comme un bon vieux Papa James... Les amateurs du Quantic aux programmations electro-latin-funk bien timbrées apprécieront, même si l'ensemble est ici plus cuivré, plus... Jazz, un peu comme le chaînon manquant entre le Nostalgia 77 tempéré de Studio et le Nostalgia 77 Octet allumé de scène. Vivement l'album! - Djouls

Tracklisting :
01. Nostalgia 77 Octet - Freedom (The Freedom Zombie Dance Remix) (Part 1)
02. Nostalgia 77 Octet - Freedom (The Freedom Zombie Dance Remix) (Part 2)

Press release :
Nostalgia 77 has been steadily building up a great following and critical acclaim for his new and fresh approach to Jazz music through his previous two albums released on Tru Thoughts. This is the first release from the live incarnation of the project, The Nostalgia 77 Octet. Hitting you with amazing musicianship, alongside great song writing, this is a remix of a track from the upcoming 'Sevens & Eights' album which was recorded live at the Jazz Café, London with Ben 'Nostalgia 77' Lamdin and Mike Pelanconi (who was responsible for the reggae/dub version of Prince Fatty recently released by Stussy on 7") on the remix duties.
The original track gets taken into Jazz Dance territory via outer space. To all the DJ's you need two copies of this to get the full effect... it's all about Part 1 AND Part 2 for pure dancefloor destroying action.
The album will be released on Monday 30th January 2006 (and in December in Japan on P-Vine Records). As well as six full length live tracks, it also features for the first time on CD all 18 minutes of the critically acclaimed Nostalgia 77 track "The Hope Suite (Parts 1,2,3)", described by Gilles Peterson as one of the best tracks of 2005. The track has previously been available on vinyl only.
