Andrea Fiorito’s masterpiece La Balada Tzigana has finally taken shape and is ready for an immediate release for 2009. Most definitely a release with haunting sense of musicality merging the Mediterranean of the past and a timeless organic groove designed for dance floors worldwide. Featuring the sultry Spanish singer Irina Sierra Bravo and accompanied by Italian string composer Leo Gadaleta. The marriage between the two sounds is nothing but pure emotion, even drawing out the tears if I may. Mike Shannon delivers an ace of a remix stripping things down and emphasizing the groove. Shannon truly puts the icing on the cake with this mix exploring the dynamics of the strings and the raw feeling of Irina’s vocals. Truly a refreshing release of original dance floor inspired music.
