In 2011 Scallymatic Orchestra plays the music of Jimi Hendrix. Do not expect the usual guitar show, however. SO deconstructs and rebuilds the music according to their own laws. In these heavily Scallymatised versions sometimes only the words and melody have been left intact. But watch out: Scallymatic Orchestra rocks more than ever on this project. The grooves, the freedom and energy, musicality and experimental arrangements, the dopest riffs. Itâ€™s all there in a cross-over of vintage rock with jazz and soul, 2011 style.
Freedom is the first single of this project. A heavy, straight disco cut whichs rocks any room. On this release we put the radio edit. Fat horns and Herbie-like rhodes solo included!
On remix duty, DJ/producer and Flyin’ High chief Moto lays down a fatty analogue synth spanked nu-disco workout, which will also be available as instrumental. Enjoy this, and watch out for more.
