Christian Prommer – Sandstorms (Carl Craig Cover)

Groovy attempt

Huh! Stumbled upon that reinterpretation of Carl Craig’s everlasting classic Sandstorms by Christian Prommer. Completely arranged with live intruments.

Found on XLR8R:

To call “Sandstorms,” Christian Prommer’s cover of the Carl Craig classic, ominous would be an understatement. A droning organ sound is the first and last thing heard in the nine-minute piece, and not once does it let up. Instead, elements are layered atop the pulsing drawl; pattering drums and percussion, subtle yet funky bass riffs, and all sorts of analog weirdness bubble to the surface. It’s a little difficult at first to draw a direct line between Craig’s original and this reinterpretation, primarily because the new version is made almost completely of live instruments and focuses more on atmosphere than groove, but that’s how it fits so well onto the second installment of Prommer’s project, a collection of jazz-influenced covers of electronic music icons called Drumlesson Zwei.
