Vienna's Dorian Concept Remixes Clifford Gilberto
This ain’t your grandaddy’s jazz music.
Austrian keys prodigy Dorian Concept (who we like very much) turned UK producer Clifford Gilberto’s stiff jazz number “Deliver the Weird” into a blippy, wonky adventure in funk. All the jazzy elements of the original are still there, but it’s a far flung interpretation of the original track.
Dorian swapped out Gilberto’s original drum n’ bass break for a percussion line that seems to take forever to kick in. Eventually, it does, with a deliciously syncopated beat that drops hard and stays funky til the end.
As usual, the young Wiener tears it up. Check out another track of his and hear Dorian Concept’s remix of “Deliver the Weird” below.
The original track off Clifford Gilberto’s 1998 album I Was Young And I Needed The Money was part of the jazz-ification of drum n’ bass. It has a feel similar to his contemporaries Roni Size and Squarepusher. Dorian’s remix brings it into the modern age with raw sounding synths and a funky beat, produced with the virtuosity we’ve come to expect from him. (This track appears on the Ninja Tune XX comp we told you about recently)
