MOZARTISTIC is a 5 song EP that mixes the world of Symphonic music, and specifically Mozart's works, with the world of hip hop. Through story raps about the 18th century, orchestra related wordplay, a pianist battling a DJ, and a string quartet imitating record scratches, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, Asheville Symphony, pianist Orion Weiss and DJ Marley Carroll have combined classical works with classic funk!!!
“Secret Agent 23 Skidoo always brings the fun(k). Every song has a new twist, a different take, another point of view – all framed in 100% unapologetic contemporary hip-hop for kids and families. Mozartistic may be his masterpiece.
This isn’t just simple “sampling” . The juxtaposition of styles (record scratches with violin strings, tympani with back beats) works seamlessly with the melodies, as opposed to fighting against them. The result is something new and vibrant; a new way for kids to experience and understand some of the greatest melodies in history.”
