about

The first single taken from Turzi Electronique Expérience's album is 'Connaissance', a track in which Turzi raps deep into his education years on a neo-kraftwerkian type of atmosphere. Versailles is where he grew up, between religious schools and boy scouts brawls.

First to remix was Arnaud Rebotini under his Black Strobe moniker. Him and Turzi share a Kraftwerk obsession. Whereas Turzi praises 'Computer world', Rebotini shows respect on his remix to the more recent recordings of the German maestros with a clean vocoded voice reminiscent of 'Aerodynamik'. Add his unique heavy-beat touch and you have a killer remix.

Sahara is Turzi remixing himself with the help of Ait Abou. Listening the original version gave Turzi an idea: create a new version which would build a musical bridge between Belgium's New beat and Northern Africa. Ait Abou (a northern saharian tribe's name) sings Turzi's lyrics translated into the Berber language.

Naum Gabo are the Scottish remixers known for their anthemic versions of acts such as Hot Chip, MGMT, Franz Ferdinand or Simian Mobile Disco. Their trancey remix develops some sublime hooks that add to the original magic of the tune.

Arms up !
