Elvis Presley – Crawfish (Pilooski Edit)

Cedric Marszewski, aka Pilooski, has made a name for himself worldwide thanks to his mastering of the “edit” technique which consists in changing old musical treasures into aphrodisiac and hypnotic dance floor hits.
He has the gift for transforming a soul jewel and a disco nugget into psychedelic odyssey, or is it the other way around?
Pilooski restores the soulful and experimental side of club music.

Elvis Aron Presley, also known as “The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” was an American singer, song producer and actor, who began his music career at Sun Records in the spring of 1954 when Sam Philips recorded Elvis performing several of Elvis’ favourite songs with Scotty Moore (guitar) and Bill Black (bass). During an active recording career that spanned more than two decades, Presley set and broke many records for both concert attendance and sales. He starred in 33 successful films, made history with his television appearances and specials, and knew great acclaim through his many, often record-breaking, live concert performances on tour and in Las Vegas. Globally, he has sold over one billion records, more than any other artist. 

Elvis remains a popular and enigmatic star. His legend has only grown stronger since his death.

Brandi Carlile – The Story

Audio Piero

Brandi Carlile is an American singer and songwriter. Carlile’s music has been categorized in several genres, including pop, rock, alternative country, andfolk.
Columbia Records signed Carlile in late 2004 on the strength of songs she’d been recording periodically at home. Released in 2005, Brandi Carlile showcased those early songs along with several newly recorded tracks. Along with the Hanseroth brothers, forming the core of her band today, Brandi spent the better part of two years on the road honing the songs that would later become part of her album “The Story”.
Her second album, The Story, was released in April 2007. It was produced by T Bone Burnett and includes a collaboration with the Indigo Girls on “Cannonball.” The album was recorded in an eleven-day-long session with Carlile , the twins (Tim and Phil Hanseroth) and drummer Matt Chamberlain to capture the raw intensity of Carlile’s live performances. The crack in Carlile’s vocals during the title track, “The Story”, came out by accident and was a direct result of the way the album was recorded. Carlile herself describes the vocals as “technically wrong but emotionally right.”
