Endorphin first began exploring ways in which to interpret and reanimate classical music following the global success of his track ‘Satie 1’, which was inspired by Gymnopedie No 1 (Erik Satie, 1888), and contains echoes of the Bristol Collective and the founders of trip-hop, Massive Attack.
CLASSICS draws upon ten canonical compositions from key musical eras including the Baroque, through the Romantic to early Modernism and jazz. He imbues them with low-fi beats to produce vibrant sonic textures and layers according to his distinctive musical sensibility.
In describing his concept Endorphin says:
I want to create with purpose. Using classical melodies creates a bridge between the past and present and lays the foundation for new emotional connections to form.
CLASSICS is an imaginative and insightful engagement with classical music that allows for new ways to hear and appreciate its mystery and power to emerge.
