2011 brings us the Shorted Circuits EP, a very special 10" picture disc from Ceschi & DJ Scientist that contains 2 new tracks as well as a bunch of great unreleased remixes from "The One Man Band Broke Up" album.
The title track "Shorted Circuits" is an ode
to Ceschi's grandmother who passed away on September
Keeping up with Ceschi's tradition of telling Bad Jokes – Q: What's Black and White and Red All Over? A: A nun falling down the stairs – the EP continues. Although the acoustic guitar version of "Black and White and Red All Over" has become a highly requested staple of Ceschi's live performance, this is the original version produced by DJ Scientist. The light string plucks and delicate but crisp bouncy drums are a nice accompaniment for Ceschi's story of growing up as a questioning Catholic school boy. As with most of Ceschi's music, all of the lyrics stem from reality. This is Ceschi's ultimate ode to the hypocrisies of a church that brought him faith and proceeded to take it away.
Next up, "Half Mast" - one of the key tracks from Ceschi's last album - got remixed by some of the finest beatmakers today: David Vangel from Toronto, 2econd Class Citizen from London and Phonatic from Würzburg provided stunning new versions of the tune, each adding their personal twist. While Phonatic combined straight forward hip hop drums with synths and a strong bassline, Vangel & 2econd Class Citizen kept more of the original melancholic feel of the track but added new samples and sounds. Last but not least, the title track from "The One Man Band Broke Up" album got reworked by The Raincoatman. The result is stunning uptempo alternative rock track with crashing drums and fierce guitars that additionally features an extra verse by Ceschi talking about the "Übermensch".
While the remixes by David Vangel and Phonatic can be found on the b-side of the vinyl, the remixes by 2econd Class Citizen and The Raincoatman are available on the digital release that, alongside 3 bonus instrumentals, is provided via download code.
