‘THE IMPACT MIXTAPE’
FEATURING: GIORGIO MORODER // AURORA // KRAFTWERK AND MORE…
In the run up to his new album release ‘DNA’ in 2020, French electronic maestro: CERRONE has shared a thought provoking and personal new mixtape.
Relaying a message about climate change-awareness, Cerrone’s recent single ‘The Impact’ samples a speech from world-famous anthropologist Jane Goodall. It is the first single to be taken from Cerrone’s upcoming album ‘DNA’. Set for release early-on in 2020, the new album arrives as his first studio release since 2016’s ‘Red Lips’. Handling all of the production for ‘DNA’ entirely himself, the new record definitively marks a return to Cerrone’s roots in disco music. Speaking about the upcoming album Cerrone says:
“These past five years, I have developed a new form of performance through DJing, playing mostly my own repertoire. This has allowed me to revisit my catalogue and inspired the making of this album, an exploration of my musical DNA through my experience as a DJ.”
Widely considered one of the most influential artists of the original disco-era, Cerrone can is considered one of dance music’s earliest pioneers and purveyors. Inspiring countless other artists in recent decades, Cerrone lays claim to being the most sampled French artist in the history of music with his innovative floor-fillers opening the doors to the French Touch movement. With the likes of Daft Punk, Bob Sinclar (who sold 1 million copies of his Cerrone by Bob Sinclair album) and even Massive Attack citing Cerrone’s work as an influence, it is perhaps of little surprise artists and producers are still queuing up to share in his spellbinding creations.
