San Francisco's SpekrFreks give Gershwin's classic magnum opus a future house twist with Blue Rhapsody.
Rhapsody in Blue, the American composer's most widely-known work, entered the public domain last January. We immediately let this be known to the glitch hop/swing music maestros of SpekrFreks, who have mastered the transformation of early 20th Century musical works into contemporary genres.
"I wanted to do something big, epic, and anthemic," says producer Ed Walker. "Like Tiesto, Don Diablo, and RetroVision. Their music has a sense of futuristic flight and this track makes me feel like I'm buckled up in my front row seat and the plane has just lifted off!"
Clocking in at just under 4 minutes, Blue Rhapsody simplifies the many movements of Gershwin's original epic but still delivers all the happy, nostalgic feels.
