From techno to classical, and back again – the Versus project continues to morph and evolve, with the release of remixes from the eponymous album.

InFiné Music’ ten-year anniversary gift to itself, Versus was conceived as a platform to continue the label’s genre-bridging mission statement. And, after all, Carl Craig’s canonical techno has always lent itself particularly well to hybridization with modern classical, jazz and classic rock forms – even muzak. From an initial 2010 recording, the project birthed a full-length containing two original Francesco Tristano compositions alongside symphonic versions of Carl Craig classics, reworked in the studio by the man himself. Versus is a singular collaboration between InFiné and Planet E

Hot on the heels of a live synth-only tour that hit Sonar, Detroit’s Movement and S4W festival London in 2017, and that will be reprised in 2018 at more mythical venues (London’s Barbican and Berlin’s Funkhaus), we hand-picked a clutch of up-and-coming producers to push the project further into techno territory.

The volume 1 released on February 23th is a joint sonic adventure curated by Red Bull Studio Paris, InFiné and Planet E includes up and coming talents Antigone, Benedikt Frey and Beatrice Dillon.

Hear it on Red Bull Studio Paris Soundcloud.

 

 

This will be followed in April by a 12” release including two essentials remixes by Tom Trago and Henrik Schwarz

The Volume 2 set to be released on May 4th includes some of the most exciting Ambient/Drone/Modern Classical et X-Jazz reworks by Ishmael Ensemble, Abul Mogard, Siavash Amini and Secret of Elements.
