Turzi releases album anthem "Colombe" as a single

Turzi has acquired a reputation for being one of the early krautrock revivalists in the beginning of the century. Like all good musicians, Turzi’s music has evolved.
"Colombe", taken from his recently released and acclaimed album "C", shows this metamorphosis better than any words.
"Colombe" sounds like a hidden Ennio Morricone gem with its slow tempo and a strong melody sung by a female vocalist in the Edda Dell’Orso tradition. Romain Turzi likes to record the Eastern European instrument cymbalum, like John Barry did for his "Persuaders" theme.

Companied by remixes from two up-and-coming producers from the fast-paced, progressive French music scene:
- Polo & Pan, a well kept secret for now, but not for much longer, filter "Colombe" through their quintessentially pop sound, taking the Turzi’s theme to another dimension: groovy bass, growing structure, addictive hooks. A future hit.
- Canblaster, from the Bromance crew, takes a romantic direction with lush production, not far from Giorgio Moroder’s 80’s scores...

Stream the new album of Turzi, "C", out March 16th, on

"La grandeur du Versaillais Turzi n’a jamais fait aucun doute, mais la parution la semaine prochaine de son album C ajoutera encore quelques impressionnantes hauteurs, quelques contrastes passionnants, quelques effets Technicolor et quelques décors grandioses à son art déjà bien affirmé.
C, comme cinéma : une seule lettre mais une infinité d’images. Conçu, écrit, arrangé avec une rare intelligence et une ambition forte, l’album du Français affirme la passion pour le 7ème art d’un garçon que l’on a déjà vu, avec brio, illustrer Nosferatu ou Metropolis, et frotte à son modernisme si particulier les talents d’Ennio Morricone, Angelo Badalamenti ou Jean-Claude Vannier." Thomas Burgel, Les Inrocks.

For Belgium, go to Focus Vif here
"Comme le chantait Michael, "it's easy like 1, 2, 3". Après un premier album intitulé A, un deuxième B, Turzi clôt logiquement sa trilogie alphabétique avec le nouveau C. Les Versaillais, drivés par Romain Turzi, proposent une nouvelle plongée psychédélique bien barrée. De Coucou à Condor en passant par Cormoran, du kraut gonflé aux hormones "floydiennes", de la BO de séries B électrisée à coups d'électro sous influence Moroder... Good trip!" Laurent Hoebrechts, Focus Vif

A taster for the last opus of their triptych christened "C", Turzi reveal their first EP, "Condor", out now in digital on our website.
Here the Turzi original is coupled with two remixes made by Matias Aguayo and Moodoïd.

What's better than to rallying two names in concurrent scenes, with opposing styles behind Turzi's cause?!

A lively hypnosis of electronics from Matias Aguayo, Cómeme's founder and historical Kompakt artist, versus the (very first remix from) dreamy psych-pop from the band lead by Pablo Padovani.

New album C announced!

<br />
<b>Notice</b>:  Undefined index: title in <b>/home/recordmaxx/recordmakers/application/modules/default/views/scripts/index/news.phtml</b> on line <b>33</b><br />
Following on from “A” (2007) & “B”(2009), “C” is the end to the trilogy. The album will be out on March 16th, 2015!
Taking advantage of his Parisian studio, Romain Turzi has made and produced this analogue album with the freedom from orthodox formulaic processes.
For this finale, “C” features an enigmatic operatic voice which serves as a atmospheric instrument allowing the music to transend contemporary genre classifications to a place more associated with soundtracks than charts.
Though unclassifiable, the smooth aural and lyrical strands through these nine tracks weave a story that is the reflection of the breadth of artistic vision of Romain Turzi.
