NEW YORK - 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, Pasta Boys, Frankie Feliciano, and 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 Chris Brann. Remixes here come from King Britt, 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.
Before 2007’s Fire Flower, Ananda Project released 2000’s debut Release, 2001’s remix album Re:Release and 2003’s Morning Light. Ananda Project’s signature blend of house, soul and R&B has been a hit with international media and it’s been covered favorably by the likes of Spin, Time Out New York, Remix and XLR8R, among many others. In addition to his work with Ananda Project, Atlanta’s Chris Brann is also the architect behind popular dance music outfits including Wamdue Project, Wamdue Kidz, and P'Taah.
Night Blossom is released April 15, 2008 on King Street Sounds.
