Decca’s Legendary Piano Recordings Remixed by Today’s Most Exciting Electronic Artists Including Cagedbaby, Soul Mekanik, and Dusty Kid


21 August 2017 (Toronto, ON) - Decca Classics is opening up its rich catalogue of legendary piano recordings to some of the world’s foremost electronic producers for a new album entitled, Re:works Piano. The 12-track release, which features remixes by Cagedbaby, Soul Mekanik, and Dusty Kid, is available today via Decca Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.

British electronic music producer/vocalist/DJ Cagedbaby, also known as Thomas Gandey, has taken on Satie’s celebrated “Gymnopédie No.1” injecting life into the distinctive melody with up-tempo percussive beats and soaring synths.

Anders Bruk’s remix of “Gymnopédie No.2” takes the piece down a darker path, drawing on deeper, more psychedelic techno flavours, while Lixo’s interpretation of “Gymnopédie No.3” delivers an ambient electronic space incorporating sporadic vocals that are both delicate and compelling.

The album also features remixes of Debussy’s “Reverie 68” by Second Storey & Appleblim, Beethoven’s beloved “Moonlight Sonata” by Dusty Kid, and Third Son’s take on Chopin’s “Prelude No.15”.

Over the last few years, the lines between classical and contemporary electronic music have become more blurred than ever before. High-profile collaborations have brought the compatibility of these seemingly disparate genres into sharp focus, opening doors to new avenues of musical exploration.

Re:works seeks to further establish the common ground between the historic and modern day aspects of musical composition by opening the hallowed Decca vaults to a selection of seminal electronic artists.
