The act 'Tournoi' is the outcome of a practical joke between two musician friends who decided to have some fun after a hard multi hour session in the studio. It is actually a spontaneous improvisation that relieved the pressure and stress of both the artists at that exact moment when nothing would work at the track they were working on all those long hours.
Tournoi is not a band, just a project. What will definitely happen is that each time you come across a track that is similar in style and sound to 'Le Jardin' it will probably be another spontaneous reaction of Tournoi!
Both artists prefer their anonymity because in this way they feel they are not obliged to continue this project in the future.
On this Ep five remixers join forces:
The Captain (Fab Samperi / Italy) remixes the original tune and transforms it into a latin funky broken beat monster.
Timewarp inc (Athens / Greece) remixes the song by giving an afro feeling cooked with 4/4 dub spices!
Leon (France), as always, has brought his 70' funky touch to this remix. The main groove fully hits the floor with its funky bassline and guitars riff. 1..2..3...4 Je t'adoore..
Afternoons in Stereo (Greg Vickers / Canada) unfolds his jazzy influenced downtempo path and re-touches the song!
Ares Soltero (Athens / Greece) redefines and reconstructs Le Jardin into an 80's retro vintage classic sound!
The CD is released with the full support of EN LEFKO Radio Station (Athens) www.877.gr
