Artist: Hamlet Release: Piano Label: Stil vor Talent Catalogue No.: SVT138 Release: 03.10.2014 | 10.10.2014
Just in time for autumn, Fran invites us into club music’s parallel world with the project Hamlet: aided by Oded K.dar (NÖRD / The Koletzkis) on the piano, she presents cover versions of beloved electronic classics such as ‘Sky and Sand’, ‘Limit to your Love’, ‘Howling’ or ‘Hypnotized’ on the fittingly titled album ‘Piano’. The initial idea came to the duo at a birthday party; the first baby steps followed the very next day. Surprised by the potential, the autodidactic singer Fran and the studied concert pianist Oded searched far and wide for the perfect grand piano, which they eventually found in the form of an old Steinway at the Greve Studio in Berlin. Thus, the drunken whim developed into fourteen beautiful covers over the course of numerous nightly recording sessions.
