Its Jason aka ClassicBeatz here(producer,pianist,
songwriter from Brooklyn). I wanted to drop a line about the release of my new EP . You may be familiar with some of my previous afro-beat, jazz, hip hop releases the most recent being ClassicBeatz – Ntale’s Groove (2011) & Nicholas Kopernicus – Audiocentric (2010)
This new EP is a little different. This time I decided to switch directions and release a 4 song solo classical piano EP called Romantic Reflections which which is out now. You can view the introduction video, stream and purchase the EP at ldbk.eu/romantic . You can also listen to the EP directly from my bandcamp page classicbeatz.bandcamp.com
Playing piano particularly solo classical pieces from the romantic era has been a passion of mine since I was a kid. Ive always loved playing the work of composers like Chopin, Debussy & Rachmaninoff. I understand that people are not expecting a solo classical piano EP from a hip hop/funk/soul producer from Brooklyn. But I’m a firm believer that music is music.
For the release of this EP, I teamed up with long time collaborators Laid Back Radio and Photographer Carlito Brigante to tell the story behind the music. For the album cover photo shoot we ended up on a rooftop in east new york Brooklyn filming next to a pigeon coup. Either way I’m very proud of this project and I hope you take the time out to give it a listen. Thank you for all of your continued support.
