Debut Album ‘Be One’
Promo video for the album ‘Be One’ directed and produced by Nico, filmed and edited by Ben Cole.
After a lifelong love-affair with music, and a well established DJing career, I am releasing my first album ‘Be One'. One of my aims is to help preserve the old traditional instruments and folk songs from my homeland Transilvania and bring them back to life on an electronic dance music platform. This album weaves together the two genres of music that I have been DJing: the electronic dance music and the world music. The album is co-produced in collaboration with Tom Beaufoy (Evil Nine) and Abstract Source, both of them helping me compose the style of music I love to dance to. With this in mind, I have designed the album as one of my own DJ sets, bringing the soul to the electronic music, by using live instruments and vocals recorded in the mountains of Transylvania and recording studio in Bucharest and London by Wes Maebe. It is also meant to make you move your body, which is the goal of all of my sets - to make us dance! This is a ‘Muzică Without Frontiers’ production and all of the pre-order sales or donations will go straight into making the album and short film happen! I have also launched a charitable initiative called “Forests Without Frontiers” and for each album sold or donation, we will be planting an oak tree in Transylvania in the area where the musicians live. Please help us plant a forest for the future generations and preserve the environment where these communities live. I would like to acknowledge the “The Administration of National Cultural Fund” in Romania who have part-funded this project and all my Kickstarter supporters from last year, who helped me make it happen!
