Napapijri 4 Seasons

As a seasoned rave veteran from the 1988-91 campaign I’m more than a little familiar with dancing away to Vivaldi remixes thanks to R&S records and the Space Trax tune cleverly entitled ‘Vivisection‘. For 2017 Napapijri have brought this classical erm… classic bang up to date with a daring and contemporary reworking of Antonio Vivaldi’s most famous masterpiece. To celebrate their 30th anniversary they’ve invited four talented urban musicians to create their own unique interpretations of The Four Seasons which they will be performing live at the world premiere during Bread & Butter, Berlin on 02.09.17.

Each artist has been designated their own season with Raleigh Ritchie overlaying his orchestral R&B style over Summer, LA’s TOKiMONSTA injecting her beat-driven lyrical signature into Spring, Sharon Doorson capturing Autumn’s ambience with her powerful vocals and Berlin’s own Jan Blomqvist spinning his distinctive electronic sound to Winter. Though being Napapijri the show doesn’t end there as in addition to the premiere there will be an immersive 4 Season’s installation running throughout the duration of Bread & Butter. Taking visitors on a multi-sensorial journey as they hear, feel, see, smell and taste each of the different seasonal elements in one space. Looks like we’d better book some flights to Berlin again…
