Ancient Beats & Myths


Artists: DJ Thor & Tony Corizia
Label: Plaza Mayor Company Ltd
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 07 July 2020

The sound of DJ Thor meets that of bassist and international producer Tony Corizia in a new 18-track concept album titled Odyssey: Ancient Beats & Myths. The two artists, inspired by Homer's Odyssey, musically address the theme of travel. Over the course of 18 tracks (1 hr, 19 min, 27 sec) they explore different places, emotions and cultures through music...

Odyssey: Ancient Beats & Myths is a pretty ambitious project that sees DJ Thor and Tony Corizia collaborate in order take us on a rather unusual journey where we witness refined electronic atmospheres, unique ethnic sounds typical of Anatolia along with instruments such as the duduk as they are transformed into forays into chill out music, afrohouse and progressive house with an inevitable touch of pop and jazz. Put bluntly: It's packed with some bangin' tunes.

Along for the ride are contributions from Ian Anderson, Remo Anzovino, Jerusa Barros, Stefano Bollani, Cesaria Evora, Giusy Ferreri, Bruno Lauzi, Dorota Miskievcz, Gianni Morandi, Fabrice Quagliotti, Massino Ranieri.

A seriously immersive electronic album that dips its toe into so many other genres that you're bound to find plenty here to love.
