I think I took my first piano lesson at the age of seven, at my first live performance a year later I absolutely murdered Eensy Weensy Spider and was convinced my path to stardom had begun. After 6 months my skills began to plateau with Pop Goes the Weasel, so deciding it was best to stop turning sheet music into shit music (I blame my wench of an instructor), I announced my official retirement. The same unfortunate tale cannot be said about Francesco Tristano, this 29 year old classical pianist's work calls all prior definitions of techno into question with his highly original take on electronic, piano bench house? I picked up his Idiosynkrasia EP a couple months ago and it's simply stellar, the InFiné release includes remixes by Ben Klock, Ark, Fumiya Tanaka and others. Anyway I'll shut up and let this gifted bastard's music do the talking, be sure to check the full live show with Carl Craig at the bottom...enjoy.
