Francesco Tristano //

A new chapter of Francesco Tristano`s Idiosycratic dialogue between the acoustic and electronic world will be released in February 2011 on EP. A fistful of electronic experts has been invited to add their own musical language to the piano parts of the eponym track of the album:  from Berlin, Germany, Ostgut resident BEN KLOCK, from Kyoto, Japan, Techno Grand Master FUMIYA TANAKA, from Paris, France, electro joker ARK, and from UK, House beatprovider duo, TOM TAYLOR and PAUL WOOLFORD!

Your turntable is already shivering!

Praises on „Idiosynkrasia“</strong> :

 Carl Craig_Usa

People with formal classical training tend to have very restricted ideas about what music is, and can be very limited by that. I know people in the DSO [Detroit Symphony Orchestra] and their concept of perfection is basically to learn a written piece of work exactly. Francesco is a new kid with a completely modern approach. He has different influences. Most importantly, he has a desire to improvise, which is unusual for someone who was formally trained. It´s important that he has a great, wide-ranging knowledge of music he knows classical music, but he´s also heavily into electronic stuff, and the history of electronic music. He´s like me, I love everything as well, everything that´s great.

Francesco is the kind of artist that makes you  the think of composers from another era such as Herald Budd,Brian Eno,Ryuich Sakamoto & Juan Atkins I realize this is  a very interesting mix of artist I just mentioned but the music of Francesco is far from predictable and miles from his contemporaries,that’s if he has any to begin with.. I myself love this production which I personally think is a breath of fresh air…bravo to you Francesco you remind me of why it’s important to dream the dream’s of dreamers! Your music is breath of fresh air.

Carl Craig and Francesco. Enough said.


what can I say that you don’t already know… I love it…10/10

An absolutely beautiful piece of music that is head and shoulders above a lot of what is labelled so called dance music out there. Deep and cerebral and something i will be playing for a long time.

Hundred Strong-Time featuring Amp Fiddler (Andreas Saag remix) by extramusicnew

The multi-layered EP includes the album title track ‘Stylin’ Free’ with a bass remix from Duffstep, who has emerged charmingly onto the UK scene this year. His 2-step take on ‘Stylin’ Free’ manages to nourish Amp Fiddler’s soulful vocals whilst creating his own recognisable soulful sound, the two complimenting each other
perfectly.Also featuring on the Amp Fiddler EP is Andreas Saag’s with three spectacular house remixes of Hundred Strong’s ‘Time’. Andreas is one of Scandinavia’s top producers in the house and club jazz scene. His music is played by the likes of Carl Cox and Laurent Garnier as well as catching the attention of heavy hitters like Gilles Peterson and the Bugz crew. Andreas’s remixes of Saint Germain’s Rose Rouge on GAMM and Joy Orbison’s Hyph Mngo have made their mark on the musical map and his remixes of ‘Time’ are nothing less then uniformly excellent.
Amp Fiddler’s vocals accompanied by Saag’s deep blend of elevating house mixes have set each other of beautifully, we expect big things for Saag in 2011.‘Stylin’ Free is an artful album with an authentic touch, you can check out the video for ‘Stylin’ Free’


keep your eyes open for live shows over the coming month.
