“Yep, there’s all the time gotta be one thing distinctive in there!” chuckles Juraj Klička. Generally talking Driftmoon’s passing touch upon his method to albums. More particularly although it’s about ‘Remember The Night’ – his just-announced third assortment. “It’s a crowded subject, he says the format, so to me, they must have one thing that can set them aside.” Bringing USPs to his longplayers is one thing the Prague native’s developed a monitor file for. With its hybrid orchestration, his first (‘R(E)volution’) related the worlds digital and classical music. Last summer season’s ‘Invitcus’ in the meantime upped the ‘unique’ ante additional, with its half music/half audiobook idea lingering lengthy within the reminiscence.
Now – in full album stride, Juraj is at it once more. ‘Remember The Night’, which arrives this March, approaches from one other remarkably totally different angle. “If they occur in any respect, he says, stay album performances are usually the ‘what comes after’. The one which follows the basic studio album launch. Here although I wished the stay expertise to be individuals’s first reference to it. It’s referred to as ‘membership music’ in any case, so let’s introduce it that method!”
No coincidence admittedly, however Juraj was properly positioned to make that occur. Evermore during the last ten years, the Czech capital’s Epic membership has turn out to be a bucket-list important for music lovers from Europe and much, far past. As Epic DJ resident, the membership supplied the optimum platform for Juraj to mount a stay rendition the album.
Further, its event allowed Driftmoon to usher in one other side that’s lengthy held his curiosity. “I’m as fascinated as the subsequent particular person by the hyperlink between reminiscences and music – probably much more so. Even earlier than I used to be a DJ or producer I used to be conscious that each outstanding second in my life – blissful or in any other case – someway had a bit music ‘hooked up’ to it. I suppose one each musician’s needs is to be behind a monitor that leaves that kind impression. So between scripting this album and its first efficiency, it turned one thing a mission to try to hit that. How it really works out, properly solely time will inform!”

Of the efficiency itself although, Juraj admits to having some pre-show butterflies. “When you’re doing a DJ set, you’re employed on the premise share the group will probably be aware of a share the tracks. Here, I used to be engaged on absolutely the data that none the viewers would know any the tracks! I feel once we’re feeling emotional extremes, our receptors are that rather more open. Memories consequently turn out to be much more intense. I feel the viewers at Epic actually tapped into that and – as you may hear on the album – obtained swept up within the night time!”
Alongside ‘Remember The Night’s solo moments, Driftmoon did name on some explicit shut pals and musical confidants to collaborate on its creation. Subsequently it got here to incorporate music made with Robert Nickson (beneath the duo’s Astrosphere moniker), Ferry Tayle and Ahmed Romel. Further, its additionally turned a platform for an extended overdue studio return for Paul ‘Re:Locate’ Moelands, in addition to a pairing with much-revered studio savant, Geert Huinink.
