Ceremony + Remixes
Zimmer’s new EP Ceremony unveils the hidden, more melancholic and darker side of the Parisian producer. Inspired by his personal experiences, his multiple trips around the world and driven by the desire to pay tribute to his astrophysicist father, Zimmer explores a broader musical spectrum, navigating between dreamy downtempo and straight up danceloor house. This new record starts Lost Your Mind, carried by the angel like voice of Fhin and a solar guitar. Blending textures and Indian vocals samples, Odyssée flirts with techno while remaining warm and cosmic. Ceremony ends on Fire, a slo mo number washed out by celestial keyboards and a beautiful steel drum melody. Ceremony, Zimmer’s new EP will be available December 16 on Roche Musique. Lost Your Mind is now available.
Following the release of his Ceremony EP on Roche Musique last December, Zimmer reached out to some of his favorites producers for remixes. Roche Musique staple artiste Kartell opens up the release with a slow and majestic rework of Lost Your Mind. Subtle harmonies and celestial keys enlighten the original with a particular sweetness and melancholia. If the Roche Musique sound had to be definited into one track, this could be it. Christian Löffler follows with his own interpretation of Lost Your Mind. The german producer delivers an experimental deep house remix, his trademark dreamy and organic sound working wonders with Fhin’s etheral vocal and guitar. Thomaas Banks, also know as one half of UK duo Psychemagik, delivers a beautiful and creative techno remix of Odyssée. Dark and thunderous, the track pays tribute to the original’s breakdown then evolves into a totally different beast. Finally, Polocorp flips Fire into a breezy and aquatic tune. Side project of Paul from booming French pop duo Polo & Pan, his unique production works wonders on the original’s melody and vocal cuts. Blending lush pads, mallets and futuristic synths, the remix is a masterpiece in non- cheesy tropical music. « Ceremony Remixes » EP will be available to public audience on May 19th.
