Francesco Tristano is one of the few artists to navigate the sideways move into electronic music via classical composition. A trained pianist, he paired up with French label Infiné Music in 2007 to present a record of original piano compositions alongside reworks of Detroit techno standards. Since the release of Not For Piano the boundary-blind musician has become synonymous with merging neo-classical composition and club music—and collaborating with Carl Craig, the Innerzone Orchestra and Moritz von Oswald in the process. This live mix, originally recorded for EB On Air and loaded with unreleased music, demonstrates his eclectic sweep. Like what you hear? Tristano will be playing a dancefloor-geared live set at Get Physical’s party at Berlin’s Stattbad this Saturday.
