JANA JOSEPHINA - REMAKES DU
AUSSER UNS IM HIER & JETZT IST NICHTS MEHR WICHTIG
The concept behind PfefferminzGreen Series is to work with the original music by renowned artists and to remake, remix, rewind, flip or twist the original pieces of work into a new musical format that - at best - hardly resembles the original. We put special emphasis on the selection of our remix artists and prefer to collaborate with artists that move within genres left of mainstream. We had the honor of working together on our first series release with Jana Josephina, one of Germany‘s upcoming singer-songwriters, who approached PfefferminzGreen with the intention to support our work in some way possible.
PfefferminzGreen, of course, was flattered, as we are fans of Jana‘s music. Two tracks of her LP were quickly chosen and handed to Marbert Rocel, Minus 8, Ralf Hildenbeutel and Fletcher Beadon, all four gifted and yet completely different concerning background and style. The result is a lovely 4-track EP on vinyl and CD available exclusively here. The release party took place at Frankfurt‘s Travolta, kindly hosted by the brothers Dennis & Julian Smith.
As always, no PfefferminzGreen funds were used to finance this release. However, 100% of all turnover generated by this release was used to buy a disability-friendly van for the Integrative Mother Mariam School located in Telawi in the Georgian Republic. The van was happily received by the school at the end of 2010, as it was urgently needed by children in wheelchairs, who can now reach their school and kindergarden safely.
