Piano, vinyl sampling and more – watch Sven Weisemann’s ‘Indigo Blue’ session for FACT TV
We’re real Stans for Sven Weisemann here at FACT.
Self-taught, Weisemann’s sumptuously arranged music has found homes on Mojuba, A.R.T.less, Apple Pips and more, while his debut album, 2009’s Xine, was a real grower of a record. Broadly speaking, his music combines the soul of classic Chicago house with the longing of modern classical composers like Max Richter, but that’s generalising: Weisemann’s music is its own world, really, and it’s far too easy to get sucked into it.
We were talking to Weisemann’s people about him going Against the Clock for FACT TV, and although that’s not quite what he did, we couldn’t be happier with what he sent us – a live video of him adding piano and vinyl samples (Basement Jaxx’s ‘Jaxxapella 5’) to a gorgeous new track titled ‘Indigo Blue’, then fleshing things out with a Love Unlimited Vibes record. You can watch the video above, filmed by Sven, and stream the track in full below.
This September will see Weisemann release his second album, and his first for Mojuba. Titled Inner Motions, it promises to “focus on music for the club” – so expect something very different to Xine. More on that here.
