The original Brexit Jazz track was recorded and programmed, played live on Friday 24.06.2016 at the Beanfield Studio, Munich, right after the British gouvernment announced the Brexit that (black) Friday morning 24.06.16. After the digital release of the original in 2016 a lot of people liked the music and idea and told us: the Brexit will be a never ending story. Right said Fred. That was the initial idea to keep on with this track with versions and remixes. So Compost announced a remix competition and got over 90 remixes in. Here are the winners of the Brexit Jazz remix competition and a brand new version made by Roberto Di Gioia (Marsmobil / Web Web), Jan Krause (Beanfield) and Michael Reinboth (Compost).
The story of this tune goes like this:Friday 24.06.16 morning, Brexit decision breaking news at radio. Roberto and Michael were driving to the Beanfield studio, where they intended to working with Jan Krause on the forthcoming Beanfield album. When they heard the breaking news of the Brexit vote at radio, they were shocked, solidifying and astonished asking themselves: oh my god what kind of future we heading to. All the British people we know, we love, we respect and we have really nice and long term relationship to, were voting against the Brexit. Roberto Di Gioia spontaneous said: Hey lets express our feelings, lets do a Brexit tune, lets transfer our thoughts, minds or feeling into a spontaneous jazz tune. This tune may describe the ambivalence of an bright collective future, one hand the restore to freedom on the other hand the mutuality.
