Electronic duo Mathame are to kick off a four part remix release with their own unique take on ‘Breath’ by Italian pianist and composer Alessandro Martire. It was released yesterday (April 16, 2021) and will be followed by further remixes of his Share The World album by Havoc & Lawn, BLR and John Talabot.
Mathame are an Italian techno pair who bring real depth of emotion to their grooves. They release on labels like Tale Of Us’s Afterlife, Sony/B1 and have a truly emotive and deep techno sound that’s full of melody. ” They are still riding high off the success of their globally acclaimed 2020 BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, and have recently launched a ground breaking series of mixtapes that have been put together with a brand new A.I. algorithm developed to test the power of the new M1 processor architecture by Apple. “Old Neural Mixtape Vol.1” landed in March 2021, with further instalments to follow throughout the year. But first comes this stunning new remix.
The dreamy and descriptive atmospheres of the original tracks receive new lifeblood from these remixers who all transform the sounds. In Mathame’s more electronic remix, Martire’s melodies sometimes remain recognisable, other times they blend into the visionary operations of the DJs. Say the pair, “We put our emotional touch to the original record transferring the feeling it gave us from the first listen. An almost ethereal emotion but with movement and groove, we had this image: how to stand in front of luminous cables of some kind of material that stretch and relax and vibrate together, almost breathing, like a body.”
Representative of the neoclassical pianists’ new generation, Alessandro Martire, born in 1992, is an Italian ambassador. 2020 was full of success for him as he released his bum “Share the World” on Carosello Records and made a spectacular performance on Lake Como “The Floating Moving Concert – LEJ Festival”, as well as winning two important awards: the Nations Artistic Award and the ISFOA International Lifetime Achievement Award. In the past, his concert activity with original music has led him to perform all over the world, with tours in China, Russia, Korea, United States and the United Kingdom. This is a stunning new remix from Mathame who continue to be at the very pinnacle of the melodic and majestic techno world.
