Anu Pillai, bir kaç yıl önce bir çok ünlü isimle birlikte çalışmak için ara verdiği Freeform Five projesine Weltareh adlı 28 Ocak’ta Eskimo Recordings etiketiyle satışa sunulacak single EP’siyle geri döndü. Plak şirketi geçen hafta kendi sitesinde yaptığı anonsla duyurduğu single EP’yi Soundcloud hesabına bir kaç saat önce yükledi. Plak şirketinin tanıtım yazısını olduğu gibi aktarıyorum.
”In these fast-moving times, where many acts come and go in the space of a few blog posts, it’s becoming harder and harder to find artists with true staying power. Anu Pillai aka Freeform Five is one of those rare artists.
Following an impressive series of original productions & remixes and a relentless touring schedule, Anu decided to take a break from Freeform Five a few years back to concentrate on writing, producing & remixing for the likes of Ladyhawke, Santigold, Lana Del Rey, Little Boots and Roisin Murphy amongst others.
Anu has always thought outside the box. His remix of Isolee’s Beau Mot Plage redefined the art of remixing, juxtaposing the micro-synthesis of the original with intricate Afro & Latin polyrhythms, creating a bonafide house music classic. Now Anu has come full circle, collaborating with Gambian griot and master musician Juldeh Camara (a member of Robert Plant’s Sensational Space Shifters band) for his latest release Weltareh on the legendary Eskimo recordings. As a multi instrumentalist, composer, DJ and producer, Anu can skillfully meld the organic musicianship of Juldeh’s Fulanese riti (a one string violin) and kologo with his own studied electronic experimentation and guitar playing – as one listen to this truly epic track will attest.
Prins Thomas joins the the stellar list of super talented artists who’ve been invited to remix Freeform Five tracks (following on from Tiefschwarz, Radioslave, Lindstrom, Mylo, M.A.N.D.Y, Ewan Pearson, Jackson & His Computer Band and Maurice Fulton to name a few) along with a stunning re-work from Anu himself alongside Glasgow Underground’s Kevin Mckay.”
