Pantha du Prince Announces 'The Triad - Ambient Versions' Album, 'The Triad Remixes' EP And US Tour
Hendrik Weber (aka Pantha du Prince) has been on a near-nonstop international tour since the May 2016 release of his first studio album in six years, 'The Triad', created in collaboration with NYC’s Scott Mou (Queens) and Norway’s Bendik Kjeldsberg (of Bell Laboratory).
Today, the German techno auteur has announced a limited edition, totally reworked ambient re-envisioning of 'The Triad' album. Pre-order 'The Triad - Ambient Versions' from our US webstore (UK/EU pre-order coming in the next few days) here, and listen to 'Islands In The Sky (Ambient Version)' from it above.
In addition to Weber’s ambient recreations, a handful of esteemed electronic musicians have contributed reworkings of 'The Triad'’s songs to an EP of Remixes, which will be released digitally alongside the Ambient Versions LP. 'The Triad Remixes' features deep-house royalty Solomun, Berlin acid house adventurer Recondite, eclectic minimalist Efdemin, Amsterdam-via-Nigeria house innovator Shinedoe, experimental polymath Alva Noto, and more.
Both releases will be available via all streaming and digital providers soon. A future 12” series of the Remixes tracks will be available down the line.
Weber describes the concept behind 'The Triad - Ambient Versions':
“The Triad Ambient Versions bring the listener into a free space, as music consists of strictly folded sonic spaces that can be structured for the dance, for body-movement: the heart beat synchronizes the movement. The ambient versions have no beats and the listener gets a more transparent musical picture, an image full of light-atmosphere non-defined and free, for the human spirit to unfold its own way of receiving space folded into time. The straight columns of rhythm were taken away for a light wind of silence and non-structured fluid movements."
To support both versions of 'The Triad', Pantha du Prince will make his long-awaited return to this US this May. His last US shows took place in 2014.
