EROL ALKAN Reworks Vol 4 12" EP NEW 2017
Franz Ferdinand - Do You Want To (Erol Alkan's Glam Racket)
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Zero (Erol Alkan Rework)
Reworks Volume 1 is a comprehensive collection of remixes from prodigious DJ and producer Erol Alkan.
The project is a musical overview of what makes Erol Alkan one of his generation’s most iconic remixers. Framing a corner of his career in perspective - a success in taking on any source material and melding it into something of his own. Alkan’s philosophy towards a remix is to ‘re-produce’ work as if the original never existed. Avoiding methods like the transplanting of a vocal on a contemporary dance beat, or adding a four-to-the-floor 808 kick drum underneath a rock band, Alkan instead takes a considered approach to build something new that offers a fresh and divergent take on the music in front of him.
This is one of five individual 12” EPs released as part of the Reworks Volume 1 project.
