Benjamin Tassie (DJ), Carla Rees (baroque flute), Liam Byrne (viola da gamba)
Baroque Remix is a new classical club night with Baroque DJs and live performances combining baroque, hip hop, and contemporary classical music.
Live remixes of baroque music (by Benjamin Tassie) will combine drum loops, hip hop and R&B samples, to reimagine the baroque dance parties of the 17th and 18th centuries. Sampling Lauryn Hill alongside William Byrd, or 2Pac with Pergolesi, as well as synth Bach-arrangements from Wendy Carlos (A Clockwork Orange soundtrack), Baroque Remix will combine the best of the music we love from across the centuries.
The evening will feature live sets from period instrumentalists Carla Rees (baroque flute) and Liam Byrne (viola da gamba) playing a mixture of old music and new. Live performances will showcase the diversity of these historic instruments, presenting baroque music alongside pop arrangements (Björk) and contemporary classical works (including music by Nico Muhly).
Previously performed at nights for the V&A (part of a museum late, opening the new Europe 1600-1815 galleries) and Royal Palaces (for ‘Queen James’, part of #PalacePride at Banqueting House), Baroque Remix at IKLECTIK will be the first full-scale club night, in an evening entirely dedicated to remixing the baroque.
