16-TRACK FULL-LENGTH REMIX ALBUM FOR THE ECSTATIC (originally released on Downtown Music, June 2009)
"The REcstatic" [pronounced “Re - Ecstatic”], available now as a free full-album download only via Mon Dieu Music, is a stunning audio re-telling of the 2009 Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) album The Ecstatic.
Serving for the better part of the past decade as tour DJ and in-house producer for Yasiin Bey, Preservation is the logical fit to take on the mission of remixing The Ecstatic from top to bottom, in no small part because he produced three of the original album’s tracks. The result is 16 songs – with their original vocals – that meticulously meditate on the original beats and samples of the album, bringing new sounds to a new decade.
Preservation’s full-length debut as a leader, Old Numbers, to be released July 9 on Mon Dieu Music
