about

When you're travelling through Greece, it's quite likely you'll hear a version of "Kaixis".
As soon as I heard this beautiful old song and Rembetiko classic in the version recorded by Nikos Maragkopoulos, I had the idea to create an Edit. That fat brass section and omni-present percussion, combined with the beautiful woodwind tune and those fervent vocal parts were just too tempting…

So I played around with some loops, added a minimal synth bass line, recorded some analogue drum machine grooves and live percussion elements, before I finished with a dub mix pass for analogue effects.

And well… I actually never planned to release this track.
But since I premiered it within my mixtape for the Serafin Audio podcast series, people keep asking me where to get this track.
So yes, you win!
Enjoy this little present, thanks for listening and any support/sharing. Happy Easter!

By the way, here's the mixtape: soundcloud.com/serafinaudio/serafin-sinfonia-op21-alban-endlos-into-the-blue
