ANANDA PROJECT: NIGHT BLOSSOM
Ananda Project releases Night Blossom; the stunning 2-CD mixed and unmixed
revisit to the critically-acclaimed Fire Flower album.
Atlanta-based producer/composer/remixer Chris Brann is without question one of the most prolific and far reaching of today’s dance music artists. His Wamdue Kids, Wamdue Project, Ananda Project and P’taah incarnations, as well as his work under his own name, have all garnered critical acclaim and commercial success; in 2000, Brann scored a massive international smash with Wamdue Project’s “King of My Castle,” selling over 2 million copies worldwide. Brann’s decidedly abstract and classical approach to making music produces distinctively rhythmic landscapes that are about the limitless possibilities of sound, not musical discrimination. His aural reconstructions of recordings by Everything But The Girl, Susana Baca, KD Lang, Vivian Green, Mondo Grosso, Snooze, Bebel Gilberto, Thomas Newman (‘Six Feet Under’), Boney James/Rick Braun, and Tweaker feat. David Sylvian, have exponentially increased the demand for his productions and remixes, providing an outlet for his extraordinary scope. However, Brann is a reluctant star, most content assembling talent and bringing his music to the surface rather than his personality to the limelight.
Fresh from their much-talked-about UK debut at the Southport Weekender festival, a deep house music lover’s mecca, Ananda Project reconvene with Night Blossom, a remix companion to the American house outfit’s third full-length album, 2007’s Fire Flower.
Collected here are the finest dancefloor-ready reworks from Fire Flower including productions by Grammy Award nominated remixer Jay-J, Italy’s The Pastaboys, Frankie Feliciano, Kevin Hedge of Blaze, and previously unreleased remixes from Joe Claussell and UK remix duo Idjut Boys. The album also includes an alternate version of “Let Love Fly” and a new track entitled “Moment Before Dreaming”.
Night Blossom also includes a second bonus CD of Ananda Project classics continuously mixed by Ananda founder himself, Chris Brann. Remixes here come from King Britt, The Rurals, Aquanote and Kyoto Jazz Massive; while several Ananda Project classics remain untouched and in their original form as a way to introduce new fans to this timeless music.
Fire Flower captured the essence of Brann as an artist, proving his intense mastery of song craft and ability to bring together varied artists to capture a collective and cohesive vision. And with the onset of the remix album Night Blossom his sonic vision is further complimented by a slew of producers to reinterpret the original tunes. This remix album represents a natural musical progression for the artist. It’s a blissfully multi-hued concoction that infuses modern Afro-Latin/Balearic rhythms and soulful deep house with orchestral textures and radiant jazz-tinged soundscapes.
Fire Flower and subsequent Night Blossom album are a sumptuous assemblage encapsulating the talents of the composer as well as the roster of local and international artists. Ananda Project main singers Heather Johnson and Terrance Downs share vocal turns with theater diva and keyboardist Denise White, UK vocalist Heidi Vogel, Solu Music’s Kai Martin, Atlanta-based R&B Soul star Avery Sunshine and instrumentalists Julius Speed (keyboards), Ede Wright (guitar), Kebbi Williams (sax), Darryl Freeman (bass), and a number of others, solidify the group’s epic levels of skill and synchronicity.
With Brann at the helm, Ananda Project creates a sultry collection that combines organic instrumentation with electronic ingenuity. The multi-dimensional album is both timeless in its classic construction and timely in its progressive panache. Utilizing classic R&B song writing with rapturous melodies, dreamy chords and seductive rhythms, Fire Flower evolves into a sophisticated and passionately-constructed epiphany.
Night Blossom is released April 15, 2008 on Nite Grooves / King Street Sounds.
