Mijk’s 4th 12″ is out on BluFin-Records from Cologne now. This time it’s all about the piano. Just like “Ebony & Ivory” live in perfect harmony on the keyboard of Stevie Wonder & Paul McCartney, Mijk rediscovers the magic of the gospel-influenced House piano on “Ebony”, while “Ivory” is a nod to the Wurlitzer-infused Yacht-Rock piano.Both sides make a great new EP in Mijk’s impressive discography.
Available on vinyl and digital.
This is what the promo says:
The piano: endless source of inspiration for generations of musicians.
Although Mijk van Dijk is known for his love of piano tracks, he has not touched the piano for years – until he invented some infectious hooks of this EP while preparing-lines for his new live performance tracks which went down like a storm during his sets.
So he decided to dedicate his 4th EP on BluFin to the piano, black and white.
Ebony features a gospel-influenced upright piano groove reminiscent of great moments in house music.
Ivory is the “white” version of the piano, a rocking Wurlitzer hook straight from the late 70s.
While the pianos breathe the old school flavour of Mijk’s best works from the past, the grinding relentless grooves are his path for future funk flavoured productions.
One of Mijk’s favourite producers of 2009 provided the remix. Phunklarique lives up to his name and delivers a funky variation with a relentless groove that just won’t stop.
Nuff said! Just one more thing: Out now!
