Created and refined over a four year period, Pinky Perzelle – aka Sonny Rooney’s debut ‘No Games’ featuring Eda Eren, is a true labour of love and an ode to his total passion and dedication to multi instrumental record creation without compromise, honouring the thread of inspiration which runs throughout the West London native’s sonic palette.
Today he shares a trippy, spaced out remix by DJ / production duo Gerry Rooney & Joel Martin aka Velvet Season & The Hearts of Gold.
He says: ‘Having Gerry and Joel onboard to work their magic on a ‘Velvet Season & THOG’ Remix is an honour. A real family affair and a pleasure to have them onboard for my debut. They’ve extended elements of the Original and introduced subtle electronica and dubbed out instrumentation. A true lesson in after hours, left-field Balearica, and a very welcome addition the the record!’
Almost every instrument was recorded and played by Perzelle at his home studio. The release, features the utterly unique, impassioned and reassuring vocals of British-Turkish artist, Eda Eren, and additional drums by a happy accident, from world renowned Malcolm Catto (TheHeliocentrics). The lead track is a timeless, heartfelt, funk-ladened portal into a world reminiscent of a cinematic movie scene or an undiscovered gem from another era all-together.
Consisting of 4 versions of ‘No Games’, this release includes the leading bilingual Turkish and English ‘Original Mix’ and a shortened ‘Radio Edit’ which is entirely in English. Next on the record is a hypnotic ‘Remix’ from Velvet Season & The Hearts of Gold . Deconstructing and extending elements of the original, introducing subtle electronica and dubbed out instrumentation. A true lesson in after hours, left-field Balearica. To close the record is Pinky’s own ‘Electronic Mix’. Slightly more uptempo with references to early house music and broken-beat electronic drums which have often influenced his DJ selections. Showing yet another side of Perzelle’s approach to music making.
Pinky Perzelle is here, and the afore-gained nods of approval from cult figureheads is only a sign of the very beginning of this all-rounder’s walk into the hearts and dance floors of like-minded music lovers.
