Marius De Vries featuring Roisin Murphy “Yellow Moon”
This little known album track is from the album The Revolution “Presents Revolution” released in June 2009. The album was born from an idea of marrying the cream of Cuba’s young musicians with the cutting edge producers from the UK and the US. Roisin delivers her usual fabulousness as always. I’ve yet to delve into the other album tracks.
Marius De Vries is an English producer who began playing keyboards for The Blow Monkeys. Remember their great single “Diggin Your Scene”? Marius’ work with The Sugarcubes led to a key role on Björk‘s “Debut” (amazing to this day) which marked the beginning of a long collaborative relationship with producer Nellee Hooper; With him they produced albums for Massive Attack, Björk, Madonna, The Sneaker Pimps, Tina Turner, and U2, and the soundtrack and score for Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo+Juliet, for which de Vries – along with Hooper and co-composer Craig Armstrong – received the first of his two BAFTAs.
