Feiertag announces his 3rd album with the new single ‘re:solution’.
Joris Feiertag is a Dutch producer and live-act from Utrecht in the Netherlands who makes music that is a finely balanced combination of organic and synthesised elements, often using ingenious syncopated rhythms combined with instruments such as the harp and kalimba.
Later this year he will release Roots, his third album on Sonar Kollektiv. Having concentrated his attention on catchy hooks and a number of guest voices on his first, and deeper breakbeat workouts on his second, Joris felt it was time to deliver something that sat comfortably in a space somewhere between the two. The LP features not only a plethora of vocalists from across the globe including Noah Slee, Falle Nioke, Rhi, Nego True and OSHUN, but also sees the producer playing with obscure samples and sounds, as he does on re:solution, the debut single to be taken from the album.
As a song about dealing with the prospect of personal loss, it’s probably one of the most poignant and emotive tracks on the record. Its pitched down guitars and hollow drums, along with hypnotic synth patterns, create a fierce energy that perhaps couldn’t be conveyed outside of Joris’ musical output. When combined with inspiritave African choir samples, as well as vocals from Dutch recording artist Leonard Luka, it delivers something quite intangible – perhaps even spiritual.
Nevertheless, what remains is an uplifting, electric slice of modern dance floor facing music, very much in the vein of fellow luminaries Bicep, Four Tet or Floating Points. Whatever follows for this tireless music maker, his never ending mission to discover the old and reinvent the new will surely see Feiertag break new ground and gain new followers for years to come.
Feiertag – re:solution OUT NOW
