    Heritage Orchestra ¦ DJ Yoda - G. Prokofiev Concerto for Turntables

    Conceptualised nearly 7 years ago, the Concerto for Turntables & Orchestra is the brainchild of Will Dutta (Chimera Productions), borne out of a passion for two seemingly disparate strands of music; hip hop and classical. Throughout the rich history of western classical music there has always been a cross-pollination of sound between art music and folk/dance idioms; be it in the Partitas and Suites of J S Bach or Bartók’s in-depth study of folk song. Concerto for Turntables & Orchestra acknowledges and builds on this tradition, drawing on hip hop - the 21st century’s most prolific sound - and more specifically its instrument of choice, the turntable.

    The album features the 5 movements of the concerto as performed by DJ Yoda and Heritage Orchestra, followed by 11 inspired remixes that twist and contort Prokofiev’s work using modern production techniques. Remixers include Heavy Deviance, Monster Bobby, Li’ll Bo Tweak, and Kreepa. There are even two remixes from composer Gabriel Prokofiev under his own name and his grime alias, Medasyn.
