Yep, there’s always gotta be something unique in there! – Juraj.
Bringing USPs to his long-players is something the Prague native’s developed a track record for. With its hybrid orchestration, his first (‘R(E)volution’) connected the worlds of electronic and classical music. Last summer’s ‘Invitcus’ meanwhile upped the ‘original’ ante further, with its half music/half audiobook concept lingering long in the memory. Now – in full album stride, Juraj is at it again. ‘Remember The Night’, which arrives this March, approaches from another remarkably different angle.
If they happen at all, live album performances tend to be the ‘what comes after’. The one that follows the classic studio album release. Here though I wanted the live experience to be people’s first connection with it. It’s called ‘club music’ after all, so let’s introduce it that way!”
No coincidence admittedly, but Juraj was well positioned to make that happen. Evermore over the last ten years, the Czech capital’s Epic club has become a bucket-list essential for music lovers from Europe and far, far beyond. As Epic DJ resident, the club provided the optimum platform for Juraj to mount a live rendition of the album.
Alongside ‘Remember The Night’s solo moments, Driftmoon did call on some particular close chums and musical confidants to collaborate on its creation. Subsequently it came to include music made with Robert Nickson (under the duo’s Astrosphere moniker), Ferry Tayle and Ahmed Romel. Further, its also became a platform for a long overdue studio return for Paul ‘Re:Locate’ Moelands, as well as a pairing with much-revered studio savant, Geert Huinink.
