stringing you along

So, if you've been following the rising star of Kelley Polar, you already know that he is a classically-trained violist and composer; in fact, he graduated from my alma mater's conservatory in the mid-90s, along with Morgan Geist and other luminaries of the electronic music scene. Today, a track from an early record, and this one is a killer-- "Maurizio" is, in essence, a disco version of a piece by Ravel. The strings are luscious and lovely as usual, the drum programming is well-paced, and the synths are a wonderful harmonic compliment to the strings. A truly stellar track from one of the more original artists working in electronic dance music today.

Tomorrow, a disco burner from Prins Thomas' alter ego, Major Swellings.
