REVIEW: Matthias Arfmann feat. Onejiru & Kele Okereke - Je Rêve out on Universal Music Classics

In his recording studio at the outskirts of Hamburg, Matthias Arfmann together with his team of producers, singer Onejiru and many prominent guest performers (KRS One, Kele Okereke, Jan Delay, Schorsch Kamerun etc.) have worked hard for an ambitious project.  7 years have passed from the initial idea to the finished work. Many obstacles had to be overcome - now the time has come. The album "Ballet Jeunesse" will be released on 09 September 2016 and can already be pre-ordered.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Classical music composition when performed in the proper traditional way seems to attract the attention only of these young people who may like to learn and play an instrument and become part of an orchestra. Matthias Arfmann attempts to re-imagine and re-create classical music themes in modern surprising ways and directions in order to attract the attention of those who think classical music belongs to the past and as. The track Je Reve featuring the incredible singer Onejiru and Kele Okereke is a brilliant travelling hypnotic deep house masterpiece that the big strings are mashed up with pulsating deep basslines, chunky grooves and great combination of French and English vocals. With electro pop 80's influences and cinematic sound design Matthias delivers an exciting track that inspires and reconnect us with classic music .  [/content]
