Lion King Gets The Cofresi Live Remix Treatment

There are a fearless few that look at timelessly iconic songs and have the courage to remake an original. Cofresi passed that boundary many times with ease, and never seems to spoil the authenticity of the original. From taking up Led Zeppelin to Daft Punk, Gotye to Bon Iver, the Chicago drummer has the confidence and skill to take on any tune with success. Most recently, Cofresi remixes the iconic Disney movie soundtrack song of Lion King, one of the most recognized jungle orchestras ever, arguably. CIRCLE OF LIFE is flawlessly transformed into an electro future bass track that respectfully, yet wildly, balances the cinematic aspect of the chants with live drumming on his signature midi-pad drum setup, and some vocal chops as well. All appropriately in the setting of a sand beach in front of nature.

Brasstracks Work On Their EP and Others

This Brooklyn based duo, if you are unfamiliar with them, are live performing artists specializing in brass and percussive instruments; or horns and drums and stuff as they like to loosely put it on their soundcloud. Premiering on Pigeons and Planes, Brasstracks unleashes the first of many track to their upcoming EP. Production on See U Won’t is wonderful as well with groovy synth and bass drives accompanied with  trumpet horns and lively drums. A soulful balance and arrangement of live and synthetic sounds. Aside from working on their own EP, Basstracks has had a hand in crafting music on artists in their local and international circles! Most recently working on Nobody Else featuring Niya Wells, with Jarreau Vandal of Netherlandsthe track will be included on Jarreau’s EP coming out early 2016. The duo will also be given credit to on fellow New Yorker Natalie Cressmans EP Traces, also being released early 2016. Natalie premiered the title track on the NEST HQ platform alongside Ivan Jackson of Brasstracks and JNTHN STEIN, another producer from the big apple, to preview the EP
