Once again, TuningSpork Records ventures away from its trademark funky house in exchange for something a little more unexpected. Last summer, the label issued "Free Your Mind" (TSEXTRA), a Baleraric groove crafted by Jay Haze and Ricardo Villalobos. Now comes another non-sequitur: "Comptine d'un autre été: l'après-midi” (TSULTRA), Mr. Tiersen’s piano composition reconstructed for the dancefloor by Jay. French composer Yann Tiersen has a minimalist approach that many electronic producers could learn from. His piece (the title of which roughly means “Nursery rhyme of another summer: the afternoon”) provides the basis for this melancholy track. DJs addicted to hyperbolic effects plugins might hesitate to play this – but those who appreciate subtlety will be rewarded here. Tiersen’s original composition is tastefully manipulated into a track that makes sense in a club context, yet sets itself apart from the usual techno/house fare, providing a rare introspective moment on the dancefloor. And it might be worth mentioning: if you play this track and the floor doesn’t fill up with ladies, then it probably means you’re DJing at a gay club. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!)

“Die fabelhafte Welt des Jay Haze. Das Titelthema der Amélie wird hier in neue Form gegossen und gleichzeitig zum Sonnenaufgang in blaues Licht getaucht. Haze feilt seine Beats über das Klavier von Tiersen, sodass man sich fragt, welche Version nun eigentlich das Original ist. Die Beats federn im Gleichklang mit den Anschlägen des Klaviers und arrangieren sich wie von selbst zu einem kontemplativen (Durch-)Atmen. Der letzte Herzschlag der Nacht, zum Puls der Tanzenden. Einseitig auf blauem Vinyl erhältlich. Mehr braucht’s nicht.”


“this is not your "average" record in these days.. endless support to this concept of releasing electronic music”

“ Call me crazy, but I find it hard to imagine a bruiser like Jay Haze being enchanted by Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain, a cute and quirky love story known to many as Amelie. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he saw it on a date with some totally hot piece of ass, which he dug into well before the credits rolled. In any case, he liked the musical score enough to slip a beat under one of the tracks and have Tuning Spork release it on a turquoise one-sided 12-inch. And, as unlikely as it may sound, Comptine d'un autre été: l'après-midi is a charmingly different track that really sticks with you, and succeeds in being both moving and bumpin'. A contemporary composer with rare pop appeal, Yann Tiersen's bittersweet melodies have adorned a number of critically acclaimed albums as well as soundtracks. Comptine d'un autre été: l'après-midi, exemplifies his style well, focusing on a melody that is as compelling as it is mournful. Jay Haze gives Tiersen's composition plenty of breathing room, focusing on the drums and letting the piano do its thing. The beat is classic Haze—thick and funky with impressive attention to detail. The contrast between Haze's oomph and Tiersen's melancholy is strangely symbiotic, and the track is ultimately no less upbeat than Haze's typical fare. Granted, this heavy-hearted track may be too sappy for some, but it is a refreshing change of pace for Haze as well as Tuning Spork, and will undoubtedly spark beautifully somber moments of clarity on the dance floor.”
