4hero’s “Extensions” Preview
there’s not many groups/artists that i go goo-goo-ga-ga over (is that spelled right?) fortunately for me groups like 4hero exist to show you what music is suppose to sound like. following up their 2007 album ‘play with the changes’ (with one of my favorite songs “morning child.” the song is absolutely amazing), the u.k. collective returns with ‘extensions’ due out october 26th. here’s more:
4hero present a compilation of original previously unreleased cover versions of their music, reinterpreted by a selection of hand picked artists. When presented with the idea of doing another remix album they felt a need to do something new and fresh, rather than calling up the usual remix suspects and getting dance floor club mixes 4hero have put together an album that would happily sit on the shelf of a 4hero fan. For this project they’ve sought out a range of forward thinking outﬁts, orchestra’s & producers including some new discoveries to cover their music. 4hero played their part in the music supervision including some recording, mixing and co producing tracks on the album making the project that much more special to the 4hero fan base. The result is cinematic and dynamic in structure and styles. 4hero are well known for pioneering new electronic music genres including Jungle/D&B, Broken Beat and Nu Jazz. The “Extensions” recordings are the best way to define Nu Jazz.
