Natcha Atlas – Riverman (Jef Stott Remix)

Natacha Atlas – Riverman (310’s Extended Ambient River Odyssey)

Listen/Buy Natacha Atlas – “Riverman Remixes” from: Six Degrees Shop/iTunes/Amazon

Natacha Atlas has one of the most distinctive and seductive voices in modern music.  Although she is best known for her fusions of Middle Eastern, Western and Electronic styles, over a series of albums, she has shown herself to also be a sublime interpreter of well known songs from a variety of repertoires.  Her latest acclaimed release, Mounqaliba contains what is perhaps her most inspired choice of cover songs: Nick Drake’s classic “Riverman”. Melding the undeniable power of her voice with lush strings, stately piano and subtle arabic percussion , Natacha and her producer/ arranger Samy Bishai re-imagine Drake’s composition in a unique and haunting way.  On the “Riverman Remixes”, a group of electronica’s finest weave a series of beautiful, ambient remixes that respect Natacha’s interpretation while simultaneously charting fascinating new sonic courses for the song.  Remixers include ambient texturalists 310, Global Electronica pioneer Makyo and Middle Eastern fusioneer Jef Stott.
