Joakim, head honcho of the in Paris based label Tigersushi, recently on May the 27th released a new album of remixes of his excellent Second Nature LP. Served by a line-up as varied as gifted, he delivers a really ambitious record.
Joakim – Second Nature.
Founder and director of the label Tigersushi, Joakim himself is a very good musician and producer. Which he proved again last September with his album Second Nature, full of great textures and atmospheric richness. Based on organic samples, he invited us to rethink our relationship with nature.
Carefully selected remixes.
To prolong this project, he released this May the 27th a remixed version of his Joakim – Second Nature LP. And his ambition is not limited to offer a selection of tracks just for the dancefloor, but more one of a listening experience. The artists involved in these remixes have been carefully selected and have made productions that are as personal as they are ambitious.
The profiles of these remixers are varied, in mixing generations as well as in their styles. There is the 80’s Mancunian band 808 State (now led by only Graham Massey), in a very jazzy vein, or Mad Professor, dub artist close to Massive Attack. Pierre Rousseau, from Paradis indulges in a soaring electronica, while the Chilean Paula Tape offers a beautiful retro house track.
Young talented artists.
There are also young talented artists who feed the techno underground: the Australian River Yarra, signed on Antinote, the Chinese-Malaysian Flora Yin-Wong, based in London, or the Russian musician and activist Buttechno. Despite this diversity of approaches, they all manage to keep the soft atmosphere and the connection to nature intact.
