Matthias Arfmann Ballet Jeunesse Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
Leading Hamburg-based hip hop producer Matthias Arfmann has devoted himself to his greatest mission so far – his ambitious goal: to rearrange the classical hits of European ballet music, taking them out of theatres and onto the dance floor! “Ballet Jeunesse” features notorious guest artists such as New York rap legend KRS-One, Kele Okereke, frontman and lead singer of the English indie rock band Bloc Party, as well as German hip hop star Jan Delay (from Absolute Beginner). The orchestral origins are interwoven with contemporary compositions of their own, interspersed lyrics, braided a connective cord of most diverse genres from Dance, Pop and Hip-Hop to Reggae.
