Shreem - Celtic Remixing, Debut Album

Here is something perhaps for the younger crowd? It's still dance music, but something you'd be more accustomed to hearing in a modern dance club. You can hear the reels, the jigs, polkas, the fiddle and the uilleann pipes! This is fun music.

With his current project, Shreem - Celtic Remixing, (Jason) Andrews’ musical journey has come full circle and brought him back to his traditional East Coast roots.  For Shreem, Andrews has developed a new sound, blending Celtic, electronic, and hip-hop music with hard-hitting drums and powerful, warm melodies.  Shreem - Celtic Remixing breathes new life into traditional Celtic music, infusing it with a fresh,  modern feel.  In Shreem we hear the influence of Celtic artists such as Slainte, Mhath and Flook, paired with electronic and hip-hop artists like Diplo, Grandtheft, and Keys N Krates.

Andrews’ style can best be described as a sonic “tour de force”, incorporating looping, vocal sampling, electronic percussion, beat boxing, and live musicianship.  Shreem - Celtic Remixing showcases each of these elements, while allowing the earthiness of traditional Celtic music to shine through.
