For the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Stereo Productions, the label presents an extraordinary project in which Chus himself has chosen his favorite producers to remix three of his most iconic studio productions: ‘El Amor,’ ‘World Routes,’ and ‘Black Rain.’ But the relationship didn’t start there.
Emiliano (AKA Uru) Haberli and Bryan Coletta are the names behind the Spaniard duo Sparrow & Barbossa. Uru (Barbossa) was the original percussionist in DJ Chus & Joeski’s ‘El Amor’ back in 2003. The stars aligned when Chus got in touch with the duo after they reached #1 with their Yeke mix, one of Chus’s favorites. Now, 20 years later, Uru has crafted the drums sequence again. Bryan (Sparrow) is a pianist and comes from a musical family. His father is the legendary guitarist Francis Coletta, who worked with artists like Whitney Houston, Quincy Jones, and Frank Sinatra.
‘Black Rain’ is one of the most mature and profound of Chus’s works, based on the planet’s origins and the ancestral influences of his music. This Eden of organic elements builds a cinematographic soundscape in which the duo preserves the roots and emphasizes the bassline, capturing the original’s natural strength in an eyes-closed epic.
You can now listen to the full premiere of the remix of ‘Black Rain’ by Sparrow & Barbossa exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
Release Date: September 23rd, 2020.
