Nirvana Reimagined as House and Techno was created by Jonathan Hay, an award-winning jazz producer with the R.U.S.H Music and Tech Row Records team. The highly-anticipated album was just released with 27 songs to honor the 27 years since Kurt Cobain’s death, and the 27 years he lived with meaningful purpose. The genre-bending electronic musical project is committed to help further Cobain’s unapologetic narrative of LGBTQIA+ visibility, advancement and advocating for victims of rape and sexual abuse. Recorded in Dallas, Brooklyn, and Venice Beach – Nirvana Reimagined as House and Techno – has collaborations with J Patt from The Knocks (Sofi Tukker), Mink (Teksupport), Pink Floyd saxophonist Scott Page, Fishbone bassist John Norwood Fisher, Sara Cooper (Carl Cox), 41x (Bhanga Bangla), transgender activist Daniella Carter and many more.
“Come As You Are” is the first visual from the Fat Beats Records distributed project. This psychedelic tribute to Nirvana is co-directed by house music pioneer Chip E. who discovered the legendary Frankie Knuckles. The Nirvana Reimagined team feels that these abstract visuals capture Cobain’s advocacy for LGBTQIA+ rights. This house and techno spin on Nirvana’s classic was recorded with GRAMMY-award winning musician Maurice Brown (Anderson.Paak). “And while a fair amount of tomb-raiding has occurred on Cobain’s behalf—Nirvana Reimagined is one of a few tributes that align with his principles.” – GRAMMY.com
Nirvana Reimagined as House and Techno is available now on all platforms.
