Yazz Ahmed announces a new remix album “Polyhymnia Remixed” with a new version of “Ruby Bridges”. The album features 4 tracks, taken from her previous album “Polyhymnia” based on the evocative concept of female empowerment and representation. DJ Plead, an acclaimed dance producer who was chosen for the first single, mixed Yazz’s psychedelic, Arabic Jazz with his own Middle-Eastern influences, compelling drum patterns, heady brass tones and groove-laden basslines.
"Remixing this tune was like solving a puzzle. I tried my best to make the remix match the live and organic feel of Yazz's music, which I am envious of. Once I had the new groove in place, the rest of the remix solved itself naturally. I'm proud of this one!", DJ Plead says.
Listen below to DJ Plead remix of Yazz Ahmed song “Ruby Bridges”, the first single from her forthcoming remix album “Polyhymnia Remixed”:
Each track from “Polyhymnia” includes powerful tributes to noted women in history - Rosa Parks, Malala Yousafzai, Ruby Bridges, Haifaa Al-Mansour, and Barbara Thompson. The first single, "Ruby Bridges" is a track named after and dedicated to the American civil rights activist. Ruby Bridges was the first African-American child to desegregate the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana during the New Orleans school desegregation crisis on 14 November 1960.
“The imagination and creativity that went into making this track absolutely blew me away. I love the multiple layers of detail, and the great care he has taken to skilfully craft such stunning music. This remix will reward many listens – there’s always something new to discover with each play. It takes you on a journey that you want to experience again and again”, Yazz Ahmed said about the track.
